Harry Reid, Barack Obama fomenting violence against conservatives over Obamacare

reid-obamaAccording to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Barack Obama, Republicans who are doing what their constituents want are now “extremists,” guilty of extortion and are anarchists trying to destroy the government.

These were just a few of the adjectives actually used by the two top Democrats in their shrill charges against Tea Party Republicans trying to stop Obamacare.  Naturally, the inflammatory rhetoric is designed to do one thing — motivate their unhinged base to continue attacking conservatives, perhaps even fomenting violence.

One might ask if that analysis is over the top, but it really isn’t.

As we’ve documented time and again, liberals from all walks of life have called for conservatives to be killed, or issued death wishes.

Rhetoric like that used by Reid and Obama only encourages more hate from the uninformed left, and the Democrats know this.

Here’s just a few tweets that are no doubt the result of the Democrats’ irresponsible rhetoric:

Reid and Obama know full well what they are doing when they call Republicans extremists, or falsely accuse them of extortion or trying to take down the government.  They are sending a clear signal to their unhinged followers that it’s open season on anyone who opposes Obamacare.

Remember, it wasn’t that long ago that Obama spoke of a “new tone” in political discourse.

Of course, that was before the current debate on Obamacare.

But now, the gloves are off.

New tone?  Forget about it.
