Friends,

I find this tactic very disturbing:

It's an old tactic, one which was used by nazis and fascists between the World Wars, and by anti-unionists in the US. It's an anti-democracy tactic, meant to suppress reasoned discussion and the discovery of workable compromise, in favor of right wing (or left wing) extremist views.

Despite the tea baggers' claim to be patriots, they are just the opposite.

Thanks,
Mike
