26 May 2004 GOP Terrorists?
From executive director David W. Almasi:
How soon people seem to forget. Liberals were apoplectic last February 23 — exactly three months ago to the day — when Education Secretary Rod Paige called the National Education Association a “terrorist organization.” Democratic National Chairman Terry McAuliffe called it “hate speech” and called on Republicans to “immediately renounce” Paige’s comment.
Now Democratic Senator Tim Johnson (SD) compared certain parts of the Republican Party to the Taliban at a campaign rally on May 23.
The only difference between Paige and Johnson thus far is that Paige apologized. Johnson thus far has steadfastly refused to do so.
And none of his colleagues have renounced his comments, including Terry McAuliffe.
