Last November the American public soundly rejected the leftist policies of President Barack Obama and the Democrat-controlled Congress.

Much to their chagrin, the Tea Party was a catalyst for the historic results of that election.

Led by spokespeople like the former MSNBC loudmouth Keith Olbermann and his cohorts, they attempted (and have continued to attempt) to label the Tea Party as racist, fringe, un-American or worse.

The truly hypocritical point of contention concerns a few short years ago when President Bush was maligned by the Left in more despicable ways than anything the Tea Party has ever been accused of doing.

I don’t see the Tea Party telling the president to “Shut the hell up” like Olbermann so eloquently stated in 2008.

They haven’t made deplorable claims like blaming Bush and Dick Cheney for the 9/11 attacks as Olby did on his now-defunct program.

Of course those comments weren’t isolated incidents; every night Olbermann railed against Bush and his administration, throwing at them some of the most disgusting accusations ever seen on television.

I don’t hear the Tea Party calling for the execution of public officials in the manner that Sen. Al Franken called for in 2005 about Karl Rove, Scooter Libby and President Bush. Vice President Joe Biden once referred to Bush as “brain dead.”

Some of the moronic things said by the joke of D.C., Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, included calling Bush a “loser,” a “liar” and stopped just short of accusing him of treason.

How many times did we see Code Pink protestors interrupting congressional committee hearings with bloody hands and insolent hate speech?

These are the same loons who protested military recruiting stations with witchcraft (seriously), and accusing them of war crimes.

Let’s not forget the plethora of Nazi regalia seen at anti-war protests. “Vanity Fair” once compared a Bush official to Joseph Goebbels and New York Times columnist Frank Rich made a similar comparison.

And let us not forget the frequent comparisons to Bush as Hitler, Nero, or any number of history’s most infamous villains.

The most recent crime against civility committed by the Left came after the tragic shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and the murder of six people.

As quick as the talking heads at MSNBC and their ilk were to blame Sarah Palin, they failed to mention that one of the leading liberal blogs, the Daily Kos, put a bull’s eye on Giffords and her seat and proclaimed that she was dead to them.

Doctor, heal thyself!

Before the Left continues to try to condemn the Tea Party by labeling them as extremists, they need to take a serious look at themselves and the spokespeople for liberalism.

Hardliner extremists like Keith Olbermann, Al Franken and the Daily Kos make the Tea Party look like fluffy kittens.

The vitriol spewed by the Left, particularly during the Bush Administration, is much more offensive then any rhetoric espoused by the Tea Party.
The hypocrisy and hate speech in the country doesn’t come from the Tea Party. It comes from the Left.
