Monday, one of the most prominent conservative pundits said the following on a TV show:
[Interviewer] "If you had your way ... and your dreams, which are genuine, came true ... what would this country look like?"Will this prominent conservative be condemned by the Congress, as MoveOn was? Of course not.
[Prominent conservative] responded, "It would look like New York City during the  Republican National Convention. In fact, that's what I think heaven is going to look like." She described the convention as follows: "People were happy. They're Christian. They're tolerant. They defend America."
[Interviewer] then asked, "It would be better if we were all Christian?" to which [Prominent conservative] responded, "Yes."
Later in the discussion, [Interviewer] said to her: "[Y]ou said we should throw Judaism away and we should all be Christians," and [Prominent conservative] again replied, "Yes."
Every one of us should be writing to our newspapers, calling radio shows and showing up at local offices or public "townhall" meetings of Republican politicians, reading these comments out loud, and demanding that they condemn them - or associate themselves with them. We should be doing this every time another prominent conservative says something like this, until the public understands that the core of this conservative movement is about hate.
