Rob Reiner Compares Tea Party to Hamas, Calls for Its Elimination
Archie Bunker had good reason to refer to Rob Reiner as “Meathead”:
Hollywood director and liberal activist Rob Reiner told talk-show host Larry King that the Tea Party is like the terrorist group Hamas, because apparently both groups are extreme and cannot be negotiated with, and the only solution is to make them go away or “eliminate” them.
The refreshing thing about listening to liberals compare Islamofascist Hamas to the pro-liberty Tea Party is that it is the only time you will hear them criticize Muslims.
Our political situation looks unfamiliar from inside Reiner’s liberal funhouse:
“You look at the Congress right now in the United States, you’ve got a strong Tea Party group controlling the whole country, because they have a gridlock, they have a gridlock, stranglehold on Boehner. Boehner can’t make a move, and so for that reason, nothing gets brought up in the Congress.”
In reality, the Tea Party has minimal influence on Boehner. Plenty gets through the House, but it is all left to die in Harry Reid’s Senate unless it serves Obama’s radical agenda.
Here’s where Meathead gets ominous:
“So anytime you’re dealing with an extreme group, you cannot negotiate with them, and they way to do it is to eliminate it,” said Reiner. “With the Tea Party, you have to go through a political thing, you have to wait till 2020 to redistrict, but, uh, that is really tough stuff.”
If redistricting doesn’t make adherents to the country’s founding principle of limited government disappear, maybe the liberal establishment should try concentration camps.
