Sam Donaldson has been in Washington too longer. He’s been infected with the belief that his observations are holy writ. Prime evidence is his attack on the Tea Party. “The greatest slogan that I hated during this last campaign was ‘We want to take back our country.’ Guys, it’s not your country anymore — it’s our country and you’re part of it, but that thinking is going to defeat Republicans nationally if they don’t get rid of it.”
Where have we heard that message before? Donaldson’s rhetoric led to blood literally running in the streets when used by people who weren’t straddled by moral constraints.
The French Revolution is still celebrated in France and is often compared to our War for Independence. The storming of the Bastille was a catalyst for what became known as the reign of terror. “French society underwent an epic transformation as feudal, aristocratic and religious privileges evaporated under a sustained assault from left-wing political groups and the masses on the streets.” How bad was it?
