California Democrats: Free Speech is Terrorism

Via HotAir, the Democratic Speaker of the California Assembly refers to those of us that exercise our First Amendment rights are terrorists:

How do you think conservative talk radio has affected the Legislature's work?

The Republicans were essentially threatened and terrorized against voting for revenue. Now [some] are facing recalls. They operate under a terrorist threat: "You vote for revenue and your career is over." I don't know why we allow that kind of terrorism to exist. I guess it's about free speech, but it's extremely unfair.

This is the same kind of crap leftwing totalitarian movements the world over have pulled in demonizing their opponents on the way to implementing tyranny. Don't believe me? Go read some of the history of the Russian Revolution, paying particular attention to the rhetoric used by V. I. Lenin.

Meanwhile, I think it's time for me to pick up a copy of Liberal Fascism. Seems like Mr. Goldberg was rather prescient.
