(Newser) – When liberals aim to discredit right-wingers, they accuse them of plotting violence, complains Rush Limbaugh. The current "meme to equate skepticism of the Obama administration with a tendency toward violence" is just like former President Clinton blaming "loud and angry" conservative commentators for the Oklahoma bombing, he writes in the Wall Street Journal. "What self-serving nonsense." Liberals "are perfectly comfortable with anti-government protest when they're not in power," he adds. Anger is "in their DNA."

But similar protests on the right are made suspect by liberals now that they're in power and implementing "their radical agenda," Limbaugh notes. But the right is "motivated by love," he adds, even as the Obama administration uses protests to "demonize their opponents in order to portray their regime as the great healer of all our ills, thus expanding their power and control over our society."
