Congratulations Governor Pawlenty, you made the big time. It’s no secret that you may run for president, but we now know that the Democrats are afraid of you. They are directing their hate machine at you. It truly is a badge of honor.
Nancy Pelosi may cry over inflamed rhetoric, Obama may lament the coarsening of the dialogue, but you cannot get much more inflammatory and course than this statement from DNC spokesman Hari Sevugan:
“The message to opponents of change who would lie or misrepresent the truth should be clear. We are going to respond forcefully and consistently with the facts, and you will no longer be able to peddle your lies with impunity. Through tools like ‘Call ‘Em Out,’ you will be met with a rain of hellfire from supporters armed with the facts and you will be held to account.”
Take note that this is the DNC. This is not some fringe blogger, but an actual spokesman for the Democratic National Committee talking about raining “hellfire” on opponents of Obamacare. Nice and civilized. One could only imagine the outrage if a spokesman for the RNC had said the same thing.
And they are following through with their threat. ‘Call ‘Em Out’ is up and running and their first target is the aforementioned Pawlenty. They are attacking Pawlenty and his communication outlets. The conservative blogosphere should respond in kind. If you have some time, show your support for Tim Pawlenty.
