Video game show: "What if a Republican had said it?"

Imagine for a second that the first two minutes of this video from a union rally in Michigan protesting Right-to-work was instead at a Tea Party rally in Anywhere, USA!

The mainstream media would be up in arms and in open disgust (rightfully so although this type of language would likely never occur at a Tea Party rally) of the rhetoric from the speaker that was meant to incite the crowd.

Listen carefully to the tone and the language (transcript courtesy of Weekly Standard) from the Rev. Charles Williams.

"Just know one thing, Rick Snyder: You sign that bill, you won't get no rest," said Rev. Charles Williams II at the Tuesday rally in Lansing, according to Michigan Capitol Confidential. "We'll meet you on Geddes Road. We'll be at your daughter's soccer game. We'll visit you at your church. We'll be at your office."

"Because Michigan workers will not take it laying down — by any means necessary!" he said."

Then try to remember if you have heard one thing about these statements anywhere in the news.

True it is localized in Michigan but ask yourself the simple question of "What if a Republican had said it"?

In that case it could have been somewhere on the North Slope of Alaska it would still likely be national news!
