Frank Rich on Tea Partiers

March 28, 2010

Speaking of Prussian sympathizers, Frank Rich had an excellent column on the opposition to health care legislation. Short summary: It’s the racism, stupid.

What’s really telling is the comments section. Rich draws parallels between specific recent acts of terrorism and the violent turmoil in the wake of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (but curiously, not so much the creation of Medicare). He’s met with completely unhinged cries of ZOMGnewworldorder!!!111!!.
