Olbermann: I See No Reason why the Tea Party People are Any Different from Hezbollah.

This is a little old (August 7th, 2009), but it’s the first time I’m seeing it. Since it occurred on MSNBC, I’m assuming this is the first time almost everyone in the universe has seen it.

Remember how inappropriate it was to say that those who opposed us fighting terrorists were siding with the terrorists? Remember all those indignant rants from Olbermann about how we should be questioning their patriotism just because they were rooting against the United States?* Apparently, the new standard is that if you oppose government-run healthcare, you are a terrorist. Nice.

H/T College Politico.

*Neither do I, but I’ve been told reliably that they happened.
