The word Nazi gets thrown around against conservatives like a football at Texas Stadium. Supporters of Barack Hussein Obama with the Fairfax Democrat Party accused liberals married to John McCain supporters of "sleeping with the enemy," Sen. Bob Menendez compared talks with the GOP to negotiating with terrorists, and President Thin Skinned yesterday compared Republicans to "hostage takers."
Now, San Fransicko liberal icon John Burton has accused the Republican Party of "political terrorism," all for wanting to prevent Obama's tax increases at the end of the year.
In the missive today, Burton urges grassroots Democrats to contact House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to implore them to vote against the bargain between Obama and congressional Republicans. At a cost of about $900 billion over two years, the package would extend all the Bush-era tax cuts for two years, extend aid to the long-term unemployed and also lower Social Security payroll taxes.The same John Burton who, along with his brother, were allies of the leftist Rev. Jim Jones, before Jones killed 900 of his mostly black followers in Guyana in 1978.
Obama says the compromise is the best he can get.
But like many liberal Democrats, Burton says the deal is "a capitulation to the Republicans."
"Just as we do not negotiate with international terrorists, we must stand up to the political terrorism of the Republicans in the United States Senate," Burton says.
In the post-Sept. 11 world, those are fighting words that politicians have generally avoided.
"At some point, the American people have to know what kind of people these Republicans are. They may never find out if the Republicans can force their view point on the Administration, splitting the Democratic Party," Burton continues.
"The Republicans rant against the deficit, but they give billions, approaching trillions, of tax cuts to millionaires and billionaires."
Of course, the only terrorists to liberal Democrats are Republicans and conservatives. But when it comes to Al Queda and other Islamofascist terrorists who attack Americans, Democrats always make excuses for them, advocate for them, and ask "what did we do to anger you." That is, when Democrats aren't palling around with terrorists like Bill Ayers.
Now if Democrat leaders fought real terrorists with the vigor they fight Republicans, maybe the War on Terror would be over.
Burton should apologize and resign. The California GOP leadership is probably too busy looking for their balls to respond to this liberal jerk.
