You realize, of course, that this establishes only that the hysteric tone of the rabid right fringe is being embraced by the former "center"-right?
And the people that protested with posters of President George W Bush as Hitler.. Where do they fall on the political spectrum????? The lunacy spreads across the political landscape with no one ideology holding a monopoly.

Obama stirred it up with his Obamacare.

Another page from the right wing play book, all the while every day your family is getting gang raped by Wall St, K St and the Military Defense Contractors... open your eyes it can be amazing.
