I see where you are going with this. You are overreacting. The spokesman said they "have a lot in common." "Having a lot in common" does not mean they have everything in common. Steinhauser didn't draw any of the parallels you just made.
I realize it is a sin for any conservative to say they were "inspired" by the civil rights movement. :rolleyes:
One might say that the overreaction came from way out in left field, even.
What could be more American than freedom from government intrusion though?
But freedom to one's own earnings really can be thought of as a civil right now, given the left's drive to equalize our wallets to the lowest common denominator.
