    Of course, there is no such thing as the "Stalinist Answer Coalition". But any group that wants to "end war and stop racism" must be real "wack jobs".

    Yeah, the United Mine Workers aren't "traditional Americans".

    ANSWER bills itself as a coalition, but it is nothing of the sort. ANSWER is a front group organized by Stalinists associated with the Workers World Party.

    I was at a rally sponsored in part by ANSWER in Washington on April 20, 2002; over 100,000 people. It was a good time; I had never seen the Lincoln Memorial or the Vietnam wall before.

    You should go to one.

    They're the ones aligning themselves with the nut jobs, not me. Perhaps they should look at the people who are joining on before supporting the cause.

    "The NAACP has hammered the Tea Party movement with nebulous accusations of racism based on hearsay and staged visuals by leftists. Despite efforts to paint lone oddballs as examplars of the Tea Party movement, the movement has made it clear that extremists are not welcome. The Tea party movement has also made it clear it is open to all who share its vision of fiscally responsible Constitutional government.

    Will the same liberal politicians and reporters who express such heartfelt concern about the make-up of the Tea Party now stand up and demand the One Nation Working Together rally cleanse itself of the anti-Israel, pro-terrorist groups in its coalition?

    Will conservative politicians and media — or the Tea Party itself — have the fortitude to call to account the One Nation Working Together rally?


    The mainstreaming of treason and anti-semitism represented by the One Nation Working Together rally is yet another example of the radical left’s permeation throughout the Democratic party and the Obama administration.

    The national media has given them a pass, naturally."

    Please specify what groups sponsoring the demonstration are "nut jobs". I see a broad coalition of labor and peace groups. Certainly all the labor groups are very much mainstream, "traditional Americans". A couple of the peace groups are ideologically well out into the left, but hardly nutty.

    I'd say someone who has stated on this forum that it's "probable" that President Obama is a Islamic Fundamental sleeper bent on destroying America shouldn't be chucking stones out of his glass house as regards who's a "nut job".

    There's nothing so predictable as extremist right wingers calling groups which oppose unnecessary bloody wars as "traitors" except right wingers calling those who oppose Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands as "Anti-Semites" and "terrorist supporters" or calling those who oppose laissez faire policies which have wrecked the economy "Stalinists". Your demented article (which approvingly cites the "research" of WorldNetDaily) gets a:
