Dem rep. says tea partiers ‘are the domestic enemies’ of US

cohenEven as news outlets report that U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz is having threats leveled against him, the likely result of the extreme rhetoric directed at him over a policy disagreement, far-left ideologues in the Democratic Party show no signs of letting up.

During an appearance Saturday on the pro-Obama network MSNBC, U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., called people in the tea party movement “domestic enemies” of the United States.

This “respected” member of Congress scoffed at the notion that people in the tea party think they’re “guerillas there to strike a blow for freedom,” and then said:

“We take an oath to support the country against all enemies foreign and domestic, and these are the domestic enemies.”

The vile comment is a play on the oath of office that affirms an individual “will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

Cohen’s dangerous fanaticism is because a few citizens dare ask government to be fiscally responsibility.

This is not the first time Cohen has crossed the line of decency, having once compared the Republican Party to Nazi’s by saying the claims of a government takeover of healthcare is “a big lie just like Goebbels… the same kind of thing the Germans said enough about the Jews and the people believed it – and you had the Holocaust.”

And President Barack Obama has the gall to stand before the American people and lecture “bloggers, and the talking heads on radio” about their rhetoric that “gets worse” annually.  Shameful doesn’t even begin to cover it.

You may recall that Cohen was seen tweeting with a 24-year-old Texas model during Obama’s State of the Union Address this year who turned out not to be a mistress, but a secret daughter. At least, she was until DNA tests came back and proved otherwise. But hey, moral character is overrated anyway. Right?
