In an editorial today, The Tennessean smeared thousands of tea partiers, equating calls for lower taxes with mass murder. In fact, at one point in the editorial, they say (not suggest–say) that tea party leaders are arming people and encouraging them to shoot at FBI agents and National Guardsmen. Of course, they don’t provide any, you know, evidence of this actually happening.
How can you possible have dialogue with people who view you like this? The comments are pretty one-sided against the editorial, so there’s that.
