“At another, radicals waved signs with Nazi symbols.”
The suggestion in the plea was clear: tea partiers support Nazis. It’s an argument that then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has before used. Jim Hoft notes that Cecil felt guilty enough to change the wording of the fundraising plea, but not guilty enough to apologize.
Oh, “they NYTimes reported.” That makes is better, right?
Except no one can seem to find this New York Times story where they reported that tea partiers were carrying signs in support of Nazis.
I was at this rally a couple of years ago, where crashtheteaparty.org wanted to inundate tea party rallies with people wearing Klan and Nazi outfits and carrying misspelled signs. The rally I attended in Clayton, Missouri, where this video was taken, was one of those targeted. This is how conservatives reacted to the imposter:
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee will file a formal complaint with the Federal Election Commission Monday against politically active conservative groups operating under tax-exempt status, Yahoo News has confirmed.
The organizations under fire from the DSCC include Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies, Americans for Prosperity and the 60 Plus Association, which have already spent millions on advertisements targeting President Barack Obama this election cycle.
It’s amazing that during a time when the IRS is embroiled in a scandal for illegally using its taxpayer-funded offices and personnel to target the very tax payers affording its existence, the DSCC attempts to smear again the victim of this targeting with unproven Nazi sympathizer allegations as a way to raise money — especially as the DSCC has tried to use the IRS to before target the right.
DSCC leaders Harry Reid and Michael Bennet should condemn.

Sen. Marco Rubio, during an “extended” interview on the May 29, 2016-edition of CNN’s “State of the Union,” talked reflectively about the presidential campaign and his future. Rubio said Donald Trump shouldn’t change his campaign style, and that he won’t be running as Trump’s VP, for reelection to the U.S. Senate nor for Governor of Florida.
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES The last and greatest hope for Trump boosters to convince #NeverTrump folks is to hold the specter of Supreme Court nominations over their head. The reasoning goes as follows: we already know/assume Trump will fill the vacancy filled by the death of the great Antonin Scalia, and there’s a good possibility that he will get one or two more. | Read More »
