MoveOn suddenly against vitriolic political rhetoric now

MoveOn seems to have forgotten the hate campaigns and vitriolic language it and its members have used. Though its website states that “violent rhetoric” has taken over American politics in the “past two years,” MoveOn has been engaging in such rhetoric for much longer.

Just last year, one of MoveOn’s members choked a Tea Partier at a political event in Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords’s district during midterm election campaigning. Republicorps and MoveOn member Fred Highton told The Daily Caller in October that he regretted initiating a physical altercation with a conservative Tea Partier at that political event at the University of Arizona.
