On Tuesday in Wisconsin, an election to potentially recall several Republican state senators will take place. The founder of the Tea Party Nation, Judson Phillips, and other conservative leaders appeared in Wisconsin to rally support, and with just a couple of days to go before the election, the rhetoric is quickly getting heated.
Phillips warned his tea party supporters of the threat of liberalism:
“I will tell you ladies and gentlemen, I detest and despise everything the left stands for. How anybody can endorse and embrace an ideology that has killed a billion people in the last century is beyond me.”
This comes just a day after Phillips compared liberals in Wisconsin to Nazi stormtroopers. Possibly eager to add more fire to the inferno of insults, Vince Schmuki, a leader in the Ozaukee Patriot tea party group, suggested that the effort to recall Republicans by Wisconsin Democrats was like a terrorist attack. “This is ground zero . . . we have been attacked,” Schmuki exclaimed.
