First, there is "extremism" going on on both sides. 70,000 (your number) out of 5,654,774 WI residents (2009 US Census estimate) is extremism - an extreme minority, (.01237 by my calculator) Are they supposed to rule just because they're camping out in the Capitol, defying the State Police order to leave? We had reports that to 100,000 at a time were in Cairo out of over 77 million Egyptians, an even lesser percentage, but apparently that's enough to overturn a country. So it is any wonder that people, who were on the majority side of legally uncontested election results, now fear for their liberty? The results were clear, the People of WI spoke, with their peaceful voice, through the ballot box. Since when does PA, CA, NY, NV etc have the right to overturn the results of another state's election?
This is an attempt at mob rule, a small one but still a mob, with anarchy at it's roots attempting to grow & blossom.
If they do, then the government IS out of control. If that's not "dangerous" & "extremist", than what really is?
As far as your statement about the RWM going out of it's way, the LWM went out of it's way to portray the "Tea Partiers" as racist, homophobic, sexist. bigoted, stuck in the past zealots. Hell, even the President used the sexual perjorative "tea baggers" to describe those law abiding citizens who oppose his plans.
Guess it's just too bad when the same labels are applied to the other side now, and justifiably so..
But for you to presume to know what's in Beck's heart as he prays is really sad as well. Unless you've changed your listening/viewing habits from your past statements here, you don't even know what he says in public, much less in his heart.
Because I guess you missed last Friday's TV show, where he closed with: "It's time to give in America. Give in to the power of love. Give in to the loving power of God & Jesus." I guess you've missed all the times on the radio show where he's stated "Don't give in to the use of violence. That's what they (the socialists/progressives) want you to do so they can say "I told you so" about the Tea Party. Don't do it. Don't do it".
And "We need to fight this social revolution, but not with violence. With peace " "Don't give in to the temptation of violence. Think Gandhi and Dr. King." "Some people I've talked to say it's time to 'take up arms' but I tell you America, don't do it. That's what "they"want. Don't do it."
And finally from last week on the radio, "We need to look for our next George Washington, a good man, or woman, of honor. Is he/she out there? I think so. I hope we can find him. Because America needs a new Washington."
Is that "extremism"?
AN EXCELLANT POST, BRIAN! KUDOS!
When the one you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.
When you see Centrists or middle of the road in the name... that should raise a red flag. As the most traditional conservative on POTUS, Franco, you should have been able to see through that. But sometimes I think you play for both teams... Are you a switch hitter? (Politically speaking of course)
as a traditional conservative, my focus in on the budget, business, the military, our boarders and constitution.
i'll leave the social issues for you conservative johnny come latlies, since it is the new so-called conservatives that want to push thier social ideas on everyone. kind of like the democrats
