"Patriotism" in America...

The Teabaggers sure saved the best for last in their ongoing objections to the health care reform bill:
Rep. John Lewis was called "the N-word" when he was on the floor of the House earlier today by "a heckler from the Tea Party, a protester," Kristie Grecho, a press secretary for House Majority Whip James Clyburn, said this afternoon. Another protester spat upon Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, another black Democrat, as he was walking from the Longsworth House building to attend Obama's speech. In a separate incident, Rep. Barney Frank, who is openly gay, was called "faggot," also as he was leaving the Longsworth building.
ThinkProgress attended today’s rally and spotted a sign threatening violence if health care passes. The sign reads: “Warning: If Brown can’t stop it, a Browning can,” referring to Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) and a Browning firearm.

Because nothing says "mom and apple pie" like making sure the ni**ers and fa**ots know that bullets can solve any problems they start, right?
"I am grateful for the thousands of patriots who are storming the Capitol today protesting government healthcare and defending freedom." -- Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC)
Setting aside the ridiculous premise that "healthcare reform" and "freedom" are opposites or otherwise mutually exclusive, back when a single entrant--not organizer, not winner--to a contest likened then-President Bush to Hitler, every democratic politician who had even heard of the organization had to condemn and repudiate the entry as if it had been offered on his/her own behalf.

I wonder when Mr. DeMint will be disavowing these "patriots?"
