ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Bill Clinton has once again pronounced elements of the right a danger to this country - and to liberals in particular - because of their “violent” mindset (“There Bill Clinton goes again,” Commentary, Tuesday).

Yet we’ve read about assaults on Tea Partiers at rallies, including a finger bitten off the hand of an attendee and a couple who were hospitalized in a brutal attack after leaving a Tea Party fundraising event. These assaults, unlike the imaginary events referred to by so-called “progressives,” are acts of real violence.

“Progressives” also have declared their intent to infiltrate the Tea Party and “do things” to make its members look as bad as possible. These include the use of racist signage, obnoxious behavior and, whenever possible, the incitement of Tea Partiers to violence.

Why is this? Because the Tea Party movement, not just the rank-and-file Republicans, represents a real threat in the minds of the left. It’s a threat of political force, and those on the left don’t like it. They are thus willing to resort to pulling out all the stops to neutralize the threat, even if that means lying and violence.

The ultimate goal is to neutralize any opposition before it starts and eradicate dissent. This is a method of psychological warfare that has existed for centuries. Are we going to let it work?
