Obama’s Dirty-Mouthed Secretary

U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis spoke to the Florida Democratic Convention this past Saturday in a campaign speech for her boss. She attacked the Tea Party and called them ‘teabaggers’. This really bothers me, that someone at this level of the administration would be permitted (once again) to use such a vulgar description for a group of American citizens. But what can you expect when your boss used the very same language and has permitted countless others to wage a war on the activists. For example:

On August 22, Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) told supporters in California (many dressed in purple SEIU t-shirts), “[As] far as I’m concerned, the ‘Tea Party’ can go straight to Hell.”

In August, Rep. Andre Carson (D., Ind.) told the Congressional Black Caucus, “Some of them in Congress right now of this Tea Party movement would love to see you and me . . . hanging on a tree.”

Vice President Joe Biden went so far as to compare the Tea Party to terrorists, and at a Labor Day speech he told a union audience that they are “the only folks keeping the barbarians from the gates.”

This is all from the very same people who call for ‘civility’ in public discourse. Apparently what they mean by civility is that people are not allowed to criticize their policies that are running this country into the ground while they can use any inflammatory language they desire to smear people’s character and incite hatred toward one or more groups.

I’m a fair guy and pretty thick-skinned. While I don’t agree with leftist policies, I welcome an honest and sincere debate on the issues. But this sort of tactic utilized by Obama and his minions is despicable and should be pointed out as such.
