They have met the enemy and it is you.

So Obama has a "reach out" to... well some specific groups. Irish need not apply. And Italians, and Welsh, and Germans, and people with a Y chromosome.

But what does it mean?

And on down the list. Every speech on domestic policy that the President gives paints one group of Americas as evil and tells everyone else they need the government, headed by Obama, to protect them from their evil neighbors.
By shear process of elimination, the most dangerous Americans, the ones everyone else needs Obama’s government to protect them from, must be middle to upper-middle class white people who work in business and especially those who own businesses large and small…

… which is the demographic at the heart of the Tea Party.

The apparent sincere belief by many on the left that the wide spread Tea Party members are evil, violent people springs precisely from decades of indoctrination in which leftists are progressively trained to view their fellow Americans as evil, dangerous people from whom the benevolent state must protect them. They are especially trained to view white business people as evil. When they see a collection of white, small-to-medium-size business-owners/self-employed, they automatically see a group of evil and dangerous people. They can’t help it. This is all they’ve been taught and all they say to each other.

Then add in the "delightful" projection of such folks freaking out at people questioning them and their policies. Remember dissident is patriotic, unless the Dems are in power. Then it's all sedition especially such subversive activities as "citing the U.S. Constitution and quoting Thomas Jefferson."

But what do you expect from such people that think much of the Bill of Rights is bad: Peaceful Assembly, Bearing Arms, and Limits to the Federal Gov.
