Markos Moulitsas, founder of popular liberal blog Daily Kos, appeared on MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann Monday night to lob some rhetorical bombs at the Tea Party movement.  Most notably he seemed to accuse the Tea Party of espousing genocide, a statement that host Keith Olbermann did nothing to dispute and sounded like he agreed with.

No stranger to controversy, Moulitsas first questioned the “tea baggers” motives and whether their support for smaller government was real, before stating:

“They’re against democratic government, they’re anti-democratic… basically with just respect for democracy in this nation, I mean this is what the people voted for, and it’s one thing to oppose it on policy, it’s another thing to use the kind of exterminationist, eliminationist rhetoric that they’re using in appealing to violence and uh, and uh, that sort of thing.”
