Why So Much Hate?

Gary Bauer
Gary Bauer, Contributing Author: The "tyrants of tolerance" are at it again. This time the radicals are focusing their hatred on Jane Pitt, mother of mega-star Brad Pitt. What was Mrs. Pitt's sin? She dared to express her support for Mitt Romney. Worse, she defended the sanctity of life and traditional marriage.

It all began when Mrs. Pitt wrote a brief letter to the editor of her local newspaper in response to a previous editorial suggesting that Christians should not vote for a Mormon candidate. Mrs. Pitt pointed out the obvious: If you care about traditional values, you should vote for the candidate who shares those values, even if that candidate may not share your faith.

But here's the part of her letter that made the left go nuts:"Any Christian who does not vote or writes in a name is casting a vote for Romney's opponent, Barack Hussein Obama -- a man who sat in Jeremiah Wright's church for years, did not hold a public ceremony to mark the National Day of Prayer, and is a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage."In one sentence, Mrs. Pitt provided four simple facts that expose just how extreme Barack Obama is, and put in stark contrast the choice facing values voters this November. Any Christian who wants to stop Obama's assault on our values, any American who wants to stop Obama's socialism and repeal ObamaCare, has just one option: Vote for Mitt Romney!

Unfortunately, being who she is, the left-wing media eagerly distorted Mrs. Pitt's editorial with headlines like this one: "Brad Pitt's Mom Unleashes Anti-Gay, Anti-Obama Fury In Letter." In the days since, WorldNetDaily reports that she has been deluged with hateful emails, Twitter messages and even death threats. But none of that will ever be reported by the "mainstream media."

The left pretends to champion tolerance and insists we tolerate its every demand. But it is increasingly intolerant of conservative values, and even free speech. The "tyrants of tolerance" have an extremely totalitarian impulse and routinely seek to intimidate and silence their opposition.

Democrats Pushing The Limits - After former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot by a madman, Obama and the media exploited the opportunity to castigate the Tea Party and call for more civility in our public discourse. In reality, it was a thinly-veiled attempt to once again intimidate conservatives into silence.

Now they are upping the ante. Politico reported yesterday that Democrat "trackers" -- paid campaign staffers who videotape their Republican opponents -- are "testing the outer limits" with far more aggressive practices. They are now videotaping the homes of GOP congressmen and candidates and posting their addresses online!

Granted, a candidate's expectation of privacy should be pretty low when he enters the public arena. But this practice borders on an invasion of privacy that strips spouses, children and neighbors of their sense of security. As one Ohio Republican said, "It's hard for my neighbors or my family to get comfortable when someone is in the bushes."

The reaction from one California GOP candidate was predictable, "We would never do that." That's precisely the wrong response! Politico writes that Democrats "are unapologetic about the hardball tactics." If these are the new rules of the game, then play the game to win! This is why the left so often prevails. It plays by different rules and seeks to intimidate people, like Mrs. Pitt, into silence.

My friends, America is at a tipping point. As the Supreme Court's recent ObamaCare decision made absolutely clear, this election is everything. The days and weeks ahead will challenge all of us to get outside of our comfort zones and to make sacrifices for the preservation of freedom.

Obama's Middle Class Tax Hike - I want to revisit an issue that was largely ignored or intentionally distorted by the media. Yesterday's "big news" was Barack Obama's White House announcement that he wanted to extend the Bush tax cuts for the middle class. The media reported this as though Obama were a tax cutter.

In reality, Obama was declaring his intention to hit every American with massive tax increase. If Obama really wanted to avoid raising taxes on the middle class, he could have called for a permanent extension of the Bush tax cuts for the middle class. But he did not do that. Obama said, "I'm calling on Congress to extend the tax cuts for … Americans who make less than $250,000 for another year." [Emphasis added.]

We mentioned this fact in yesterday's report, but you need to make sure that your friends and family members understand this key point. Obama wants to raise everyone's taxes. The only difference is the timing. He wants to tax the "rich" starting in January. But there are not enough rich people to pay for all of Obama's spending, so he'll tax everyone else in 2014. Yesterday he admitted it.

That's just one more reason why Barack Obama must be defeated, and why we must elect a conservative majority to the United States Senate on November 6th!
