They Can't Hate Everybody, Can They?

Andrew Breitbart analyzes BDS-by-proxy, which is the left's determination to demonize every person who opposes any part of their agenda. The list keeps getting longer: Sarah Palin, Joe the Plumber, Tea Party goers, now townhall "mobs."

"Rule 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it and polarize it. Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)"

That's from Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals, and the Democrats have followed it word for word over the last eight years. They've perfected the technique with a rapidity that is frightening. If you have the audacity to question any part of Teh One's agenda, you will be attacked with "personalized criticism" and "ridicule works."

Perhaps castigating those questioning Obamacare as "un-patriotic" and "evil-mongering" are the straws breaking the camel's back here. I can't imagine that most of the people asking blunt questions appreciate being ridiculed for their dress, particularly after being accused of participating in Brooks Brothers riots. No one ever accused the Left of consistency.

Hopefully, Americans are waking up to the utter contempt Democrats and the American left hold them in. Certainly, they've been given enough notice.
