Examiner's York: NOT ONE INCIDENT OF VIOLENCE BY CONSERVATIVES
The Examiner's Bryon York painsakingly documents years of worthless and completely unfounded allegations about "conservative violence" when there are no cases on record of a single conservative speaker, letter writer or talk host ever asking or suggesting violence.
Hate groups do exist across the political spectrum, and have for a long time. But they have nothing to do with the expressions of frustration over deficits, taxes and Obamacare that we have heard at so many Tea Party gatherings.
That frustration, felt by Republicans, independents and even some Democrats, is an entirely mainstream reaction to the sharply activist course the president and congressional leadership have taken. While the level of frustration is indeed a threat, it is a political threat.
Ask Democrats running in this November's elections. It's important to distinguish between a political threat and a physical one. As Clinton might say, the hate accusers should watch their words.
