Rachel Maddow, McCarthyite - The FBI, the left, and the war on "extremism" **A Must Read**

Every government lives in fear of its own citizens. The fear waxes and wanes, as the tides of public opinion and economic ups and downs crest and wash over the political landscape. In good times, the fear is somewhat subtle: discontent, albeit ever-present, is masked by prosperity and contained; in bad times, the fear overflows into the everyday life of the citizenry, which is viewed with the utmost suspicion by the ruling elite. In Washington, they’re wondering: how long will they put up with it?

Today, the answer to that question is: not much longer – and the fear is manifest in the latest campaign against "extremism," which is being touted by the "mainstream" media, the authorities, and the professional "extremist"-hunters who work in tandem with both. To give you the flavor of the witch-hunting atmosphere being whipped up by the media-FBI complex, get a load of Rachel Maddow, the "liberal" MSNBC commentator, last Thursday night. After running a videotaped interview with anti-abortion militant Scott Roeder – recently sentenced to life in prison for the murder of an abortion doctor – in which Roeder expressed support for the "sovereignist" doctrine that the federal government has no right to institute drivers’ licenses, she averred:

I recall her treating Ron Paul with respect but.................

I suspect that (forever reason) she has made a turn in direction of loss causes. She is now a tool of the liberal left for sure.

I guess "extremist" is the only thing traitors can shout at people who are exposing them.

It's unfortunate that they try to associate us with violent criminals, but what would you expect from people like them?

Great article 'til the end where he used the word "democracy" ....

sigh.

Anything with

Rachel Madcow in the title is garbage from the left wing nut roots.

Can you explain truthy?

Not sure what you mean. Please read the column if you haven't. It is not what it seems.

Washington best be worring about how long "we the people" will

be tolerating treason. My bet is...not much longer !!!

I'm not sure

politics is personal. Look to what is going on in Iraq and Afghanistan and how those people are reacting to the institution of a new gov't. It is very interesting how people fight for there own interests first. It shows how our gov't was at it's making and all other gov'ts.

Worry? They're banking on it.

Order out of chaos.

Hey Mike

so what did you think of the column?

Do you see that COINTELPRO has been going on for decades? It did not stop after it was exposed. It has been going on this whole time. Look into how they have done this to "militia" and "white supremacists" non stop. The info is out there, just use www.startpage.com instead of google, and see how all "opposition forces" have been infiltrated and "controlled".

I agree with johnjen, this is

I agree with johnjen, this is a horrible analogy. It's actually just straight out wrong.

don't see it

I don't see how Maddow equates to McCarthy ... McCarthy ultimately turned out being right (and he was demonized because the powers that be didn't want the public knowing that gov't positions were being infiltrated by communists).

You are right Johnjen

It was a bad anology
