Tony Blankley is absolutely right ("Politics turns dangerously rougher," Commentary, Thursday). Freedom of speech is one thing, but the matter of violent words against the tea party is an example of the First Amendment's clause against incitement that threatens or "breaches the peace," as Mr. Blankley stated.
In the past few weeks, leading Democrats in Congress have called Tea Party members terrorists, said they should go to hell and accused them of wanting to lynch black people. Last weekend at an event attended by President Obama, the head of the Teamsters Union, Jimmy Hoffa Jr., attacked the Tea Party, screaming, "President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let's take these sons of bitches [Tea Party members] out and give America back to an America where we belong." (Note: The president was not on the platform when Mr. Hoffa spoke.)
