Kerry Warns of “Dangerous Atmosphere” Around Brown Rallies
Article: National Review

Sen. John Kerry (D., Mass.) thinks Scott Brown’s rallies in the Bay State are “reminiscent of the dangerous atmosphere of Sarah Palin’s 2008 campaign rallies,” the Boston Globe is reporting.

Kerry says Brown supporters have engaged in “bullying and intimidation tactics” in the past few days and suggests that some of them may even be from out of state. (Would the senator rather keep the race local?)

Coakley's Bullying Tactics

“I’m no stranger to hard fought campaigns, but what we’ve seen in the past few days is way over the line and reminiscent of the dangerous atmosphere of Sarah Palin’s 2008 campaign rallies. This is not how democracy works in Massachusetts,” Kerry said in a written statement Monday.

“Scott Brown needs to speak up and get his out of state tea party supporters under control. In Massachusetts, we fight hard and win elections on the issues and on our differences, not with bullying and threats,” he added.

Corey Welford, a Coakley spokesman, went even farther, accusing Brown of having “stoked the fires” by “smirking at threats against the Attorney General,” (a reference to this). The spokesman says Brown “has lost control of his campaign” and must “tell his out of state supporters to stand down.”

John "why the long face" Kerry

This wasn’t Kerry’s first evocation of a frenzied right-wing movement offering something like illicit support to Scott Brown. In a fundraising e-mail sent to Coakley supporters today, Kerry said “tea baggers” are “revved up…at the thought of hijacking health care reform and every chance we have at making progress in Washington.”

Nor is it the senator’s his first use of Palin as bogeywoman. In a December mailing, Kerry asked supporters to “imagine what Washington would look like if a bunch of new senators – inspired by Sarah Palin and the tea party crowd – took over.”

There’s just… no… words for the stupidity. This guy could have been president. COULD YOU IMAGINE?! I think back to 2004 and thing “Man, John Kerry of all people should be able to look around and put two and two together. “. Don’t you know, Mr Kerry, that when people SUPPORT a candidate, whether local or national, it’s because they believe in that person and the message they’re sending? Their policies and beliefs? This trainwreck of an administration has got to stop, and you, Mr. Kerry… really are delusional. Seek help, man.

The thing about Brown is that it’s not about “republican” vs “democrat”. It’s much more than that. Brown is even attracting Democrats and Independents. Why? Same reason Sarah Palin could attract Democrats and Independents. If you don’t understand THAT – there’s no real hope for you.
