‘Nice’ list of Bush-era protest photos…
…for a given value of ‘nice;’ but John Hawkins missed one.
Hawkins’ point is nonetheless well-taken; the credibility of the Democratic party is going to be fundamentally compromised until they address the fact that, from about 2003 to 2009, they were increasingly willing to let people like the above (or the ones in Hawkins’ lists) march in their rallies sans denials, disavowing, or frankly a punch in the face. And it doesn’t matter how much the media covers for them; ordinary, decent Americans react to this sort of thing with an instinctive and absolutely justified revulsion, which made countering it a whole lot easier during the Bush administration.
