Oh dear Jebus she's become McCarthy. And Reid actually called her on it. This is going to be fun to watch. Popcorn, lulz anyone?

I wouldn't classify neo-McCarthyism as "fun", but it is imperative that the state of Nevada does not elect this coonttard.

What, no Golgi stain?

FTA: If she is going to use such rhetoric, she has an obligation to name names and explain to the American people exactly who she thinks is a domestic enemy.

...er, and WHY she thinks it, mayhap?

Hold her feet to the fire. Make that the only question you ask her until she answers it. Follow her around with cameras until she does. If there are active treasonists in Congress, then what topic could be more important than outing them?

Somacandra: If there are active treasonists in Congress, then what topic could be more important than outing them?

I sincerely believe that there are Congressmen engaged in acts of treason. That said, my definition of treason varies from the legal definition of treason. And I'm next to f*cking certain that there are zero Congressmen engaged in acts of treason as per the Constitution.

You missed the caveat.

Occam's Chainsaw: my definition of treason varies from the legal definition of treason.

And if you're genuinely interested, I believe that the definition of treason should be updated to include non-state actors.

I'm genuinely interested in who you think is committing your definition of treason, and what that definition is.

If these "enemies" are seriously in the WALLS of the senate and congress then I think they have been dead a long time. Those buildings are old.

Okay, I'm all fine and happy with the quotes that were given, but why the hell was some nobody's diary in DailyKos the source for this story?
 
2010-08-26 01:15:13 AM
wow... that takes some guts to go around calling senators traitors... just goes to show the rhetoric of the "Teaparty" candidates really is over the top...

/sorry but i saw Stewarts dismantling of Dick Armey's over the top use of language... going around calling people traitors for a difference of opinion and interpretation of the Constitution is dangerous and abusive of the responsibility to freedom of speech.
 
2010-08-26 01:16:01 AM
That exchange alone should insure that Harry Reid is reelected.

Because it doesn't matter what the source is as long as the facts are accurate?

Weird concept, I know.

cameroncrazy1984: I'm genuinely interested in who you think is committing your definition of treason, and what that definition is.

As said above, I'd overhaul the definition to include non-state actors. You can just as easily sell out your country to, say, Monsanto or al Qaeda or the Church of England as you can to traditional nation-states. As to who would be prosecutable under that definition, it's not like I have a master list handy, but I guarantee you that you could produce one or more Congresscritters who knowingly and willfully undertook acts that caused direct harm to the nation to the benefit of a corporation or lobbying group.

Willful intent to subvert the Constitution of the United States should be criminal as well, but I'm guessing that would be classified as a separate crime, and probably doesn't deserve punishment commensurate with treason.

That would be fun to watch, someone following her wherever she went and not laying off till she breaks or talks. Maybe we need to have Cheney waterboard the biatch.

That is the first time I have ever seen Al Qaeda, Monsanto, and The Church of England used together in a sentence.

/Kind of like a Glenn Beck/Lyndon LaRouche combo.

I love watching the republicans snatch defeat. It's like the 86 world series all over again. And I'm a redsox fan.

How could we not recruit some sports figure out of vegas is beyond me.

Harry Reid's grown maybe 2" of spine - this is some seriously low-lying fruit.

Let's try standing up to already-elected Republicans, shall we?

Probably because Kos and Fark have some financial arrangement.
 
2010-08-26 01:38:08 AM
Yeah, come on, lady. Name names. Let's see who you think traitors are. So I can vote for them. Because the last thing I need someone with absolutely no understanding about death threats and treason telling me who they think needs to die for your little American Taliban.

What a stupid coont. I hope after she loses she is mocked until she jumps off a cliff.
 
2010-08-26 01:38:33 AM
That vapid woman probably thinks that disagreeing with her is committing treason. It is not.

What treason might look like.

Promoting "second amendment remedies" when the results of the electoral process don't go your way, and claiming that elected representatives are enemies of the state?

This is beyond the pale. Through the looking glass.

And people are still going to vote for her just because of the (R) and because they hate Harry Reid.

Just to keep on topic:

Sharron Angle's rhetoric is irresponsible and over the top. Let me be very clear. While I may have some differences of opinion with my Republican colleagues in the Senate, I have never questioned their patriotism. For Sharron Angle to agree that any of them -- Republican or Democrat -- is an enemy of the state is not only an insult to every United States Senator, it's a disgrace to our country. If she is going to use such rhetoric, she has an obligation to name names and explain to the American people exactly who she thinks is a domestic enemy.

Alphax: "Death to America!" to "Cake or Death!"

Well, if the Cake is made from Monsanto grains, then they all link together really well. CoE -> Cake -> Death.

:D

I predict a Sarah Palin tweet coming on.

Prediction: A tweet within 36 hours on this statement and a twisted definition of treason from Sarah.

She went to five colleges for her journalism degree, are you saying she's not qualified to speak on this topic?

Unless the people of Nevada are idiots with the memory of a goldfish, Reid has her cold.

Well, Bachmann went on to win re-election after making pretty much the same statement on a much larger stage. Is Utah more or less proportionately right-wing-bat than MN6?

I'm not sure it's a "spine" as much as a notochord. It still makes him a vertebrate, though.

Nevada, not Utah.

Did Bachmann win a relection? I'd assumed that we'd heard all the batshiat crazy from her withing one 2 year term.

A purity test for Nevada Farkers:

The American Communist Party, the Democratic Socialists of America, and the Progressive Labor Party with their DOZENS of members are secretly running the world via the Democratic Party from tiny rented apartments in New York City.

Repeat this to yourself several times. If you are not dumbstruck by the idiocy of this statement, by all means, please vote for Sharon Angle.

Two terms, with a third on the way. Her district (new window) is the result of much gerrymandering. Upside to said gerrymandering being of course the first Moose Limb to serve in Congress.

He should call her ass out: if she knows anybody in Congress that is an enemy of the State, and she doesn't name any names, she's acting as an accomplice.

That, or she's just full of shiat. Your move.

Her district is about to be apportioned out of existence last I heard. Too many people did as she asked and avoided the census.

No, she made those statements before the 2008 election. And she was re-elected.

Yes, but just barely. She had it in the bag until she said that, then it became a close race between her and a nobody.

If she loses re-election and Keith Ellison wins, and Minnesota loses exactly one House seat, I'm pretty sure it won't be Bachmann's seat that'll get gerrymandered out of existence for the next decade.
