In a rant on Politicking with Larry King, liberal Hollywood director Rob Reiner went on a rant about the Tea Party.

He compared the Tea Party to Hamas and the inability to negotiate with extremists.

Reiner said, “Anytime you’re dealing with an extreme group, you cannot negotiate with them, and the way to do it is to eliminate it. With the Tea Party, you have to go through political thing, you have to wait till 2020 to redistrict, but that is really tough stuff.”

Perhaps Rob Reiner should consider the extremism of his comparison: Americans concerned about the size and direction of our country are comparable to a horribly brutal terrorist organization?

This type of rhetoric won't get us anywhere in this country, so long as liberals like Rob Reiner are unwilling to try and understand the concerns of Tea Party conservatives.
