I guess his title is fitting

Paul Krugman's, that is. His NY Times blog is dubbed "The Conscience of a Liberal," and today he writes

Since I have decent Internet access for a couple of hours, let me weigh in a bit on the craziness sweeping America.

Joe Klein reports on a town hall meeting where people think that Obama has larded the government with communists. Bizarre ó but Iíve been getting equally bizarre claims in much of my mail. And whatís striking is the intensity.

Iíve mentioned before that my hate mail has reached levels I havenít seen since 2004 or so. But back then, the hate was in a way understandable. People like me were questioning Bushís bona fides as the great protector against terrorism, were claiming that he deliberately misled the country into an unnecessary war. Those were strong charges, and in a way you could understand that people who idolized Bush (believe it or not, there used to be a lot of them) were upset.

Yep, that's pretty much the "conscience of a [modern] liberal," all right. It's "bizarre" that Obama has hired communists (ahem, Van Jones, ahem) and the "intensity" and "hate" in politics today is "crazy." But of course, back during the Bush era such "intensity," "hate," and "craziness" was ... "understandable."

I remember the violence that followed MLK;s death. Burned down houses in the Valley.
Their OWN houses.

I remember them spitting on returning soldiers from Viet Nam. The anti-war protestors were violent themselves?

Thems were violent protestors.

still no apologies from the leftists, progressives.

Remember malcolm X "By any means necessary".

The real silent majority is awakening, and it has the left frightened.

Wake up AMERICA..

A Patriot

Krugman is a partisan hack.
