So, according to Frank Rich of the New York Times [2], the Tea Party protesters are indulging in a “small-scale mimicry of Kristallnacht.”  There is a “tsunami of anger” gathering across the land, he writes, and an “accompanying rise in right-wing extremism”.

Well, I detest some of the expressions reported in recent days and I’m hoping the Tea Party movement – where I’ve met many thoughtful, responsible people – will begin a little self-policing.  I’m also hoping that the worst sign-carriers will be taken aside and questioned — as I would be willing to bet that some of them are plants, out to generate material for the Frank Riches of the world in order to discredit the movement.

In the meantime, let’s not flush recent history down the memory hole.  Zombietime.com [3], a very reputable website that has been around for years specialising in photographing political rallies and public gatherings, has a very interesting gallery of photos [4] from the Bush years.  Go here [4] to see people at rallies holding signs with legends like “Save Mother Earth.  Kill Bush.”
