Daily Kos Kook Founder Says Americans Should Shut Up And Take It

Tea Party supporters should shut up and let President Obama destroy America if they know what’s good for them, a prominent leftist agitator says.
On his TV show Glenn Beck highlighted recent remarks made by propagandist Markos Moulitsas, founder of the vile, hateful left-wing website, Daily Kos. (video not available; transcript here) Moulitsas said
I mean, this is what the people voted for. And it’s one thing to oppose it on policy. It’s another thing to use the kind of exterminationist, eliminationist rhetoric that they are using in appealing to violence and that sort of thing.
So many lies. Where to begin? Let’s look at this kook’s two points which are (i) that the people are getting what they wanted and (ii) that the right is inciting violence for political ends.
By electing Obama the American people did not vote to transform America into a socialist state. Obama, the nation’s first Marxist president, presented himself as a moderate, pragmatic liberal during the 2008 presidential election campaign. Only occasionally, and only inadvertently, did Obama let slip his true radical intentions, such as when he admitted to Joe the Plumber that he wanted to spread the wealth around. The mainstream media dutifully downplayed and in many cases outright ignored the remark in an effort to help get Obama elected. Throughout this period Moulitsas did nothing but cheer on Obama as if a paid lackey.
And what proof does Moulitsas have that Obama opponents are inciting violence? Sure, there have been a few isolated incidents but almost all political violence committed during the Obama era has been perpetrated by people on the left.
As Mithridate Ombud helpfully pointed out on NewsBusters:
