GOP actions speak louder

 

A recent rambling letter to the editor by Curtis Stone states that the Democratic Party should be listed as an extremist group because of the following:

• Because of a surge of right-wing militia groups when a Democrat is president.

• Because “many” Americans view the Democratic Party as a threat to freedom.

• Because gun sales have rocketed since Obama became president.

• Because “it is feared” that the Obama administration will soon erase the Second Amendment.

• Because a “published magazine” says that the Southern Poverty Law Center is a communist front organization.

Why should the Democratic Party be viewed as extremist when all of Stone’s reasons list the neurotic actions of the Republican right wing?
