Chilling Quote: Who Said This?

I ran across this chilling post. With talk of violence and increasingly hostile atmosphere in America, talk like this can only lead to more violence.

Who made the following statement?

“They’re worse than the brown shirts and the communist element and also the night riders and the vigilantes. They’re the worst type of people that we harbor in America. I think that we’re up against the strongest, well-trained, militant, revolutionary group that has ever assembled in America.”

Did you guess Nancy Pelosi?

If so, you are wrong. Although this comment is strikingly similar to numerous comments Pelosi has made about the Tea Party protesters.

This quote is from 40 years ago on May 3, 1970 by then Ohio Governor Rhodes.

We all know what happened the next day. On May 4, 1970 at 12:24 PM, the National Guard opened fire on the protesters killing Allison Krause, 19 years old; Sandra Lee Scheuer, 20; Jeffrey Glenn Miller, 20, and William K. Schroeder, 19.

Those chilling accusations by Governor Rhodes have been echoed by not only Nancy Pelosi, but a number of other Democrats hell bent on inflicting damage to those protesting government policy by accusing them of associations with groups that have no connection whatsoever. The ultimate goal is to portray the protesters as undesirable elements and un-American.

These statements were not true in 1970 and they are not true today. But they well may prove to be a prelude to an equally tragic outcome.

False charges of racism, radicalism and intent to harm Americans is a proven recipe to incite lethal responses from security forces who believe the political rhetoric.

It is ironic that if Nancy Pelosi attended school at Kent State, she could have been among the protesters at Kent State that fateful day protesting the very type of Government behavior she now exhibits on a daily basis.

  1. Every tear in April, I do a write up on Kent State. Those were my days and I’ve written several times that history is repeating itself.

    This year, I’ll skip the Kent State story. You just wrote it for the year 2010. I made the link sticky for a while.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
