So what we see here is that the allegedly brand spanking new "Tea Party" - is really just the rotted core of the same Old not-so-Grand Party. Surprise, surprise...
But then again, it's not as if there weren't some hints.
From the HBO Documentary "Right America, Feeling Wronged" which documented the McCain/Palin campaign and their supporters - it's not like some of the rank distrust of Obama and Democrats just suddenly happened after he was elected President.
Obama is a Muslim.
Obama is a Terrorists.
Obama Hates America.
He's going to swear his oath of allegiance on the Quoran.
He won't wear a Flag Pin.
He won't pledge allegiance to the Flag.
McCain just didn't take the Gloves Off.
The way the youth is behind him, all I could think of is "Hitler Youth".
The fact is that the Tea Party are just a pack of bitter Conservative Republicans who can't stand the fact they lost - they're nothing more then Sore Losers!.
You can argue that some of the crazy statements by supporters in this video don't matter - except that we've been hearing just as crazy stuff for quite a while from elected (and nearly elected) Republicans. What's even funnier is to watch how fast they run when they get called on it.
People like John Boehner, who now say "Nobody ever said the Stimulus wouldn't produce any jobs" --- except that HE DID. (And so did Scott Brown)
Wanna see what Obama has done to our Jobs? This.
Or Rep. Steve King who says Obama hasn't helped out Lousisiana on the BP Oil Spill because "Bobby Jindal is a Republican". So is that why George Bush did such a shitty job during Katrina, because Jindal's predecessor was a Democrat? That's Really your argument Steve, that the President is that Petty? Maybe it's because he hates White People, cuz he's only "Half White" or he hates Christians since he was Sworn In on the Quoran!
Hint to the Sarcasm Challenged, that was a Joke!
Tea Party Wacko or GOP Base - it does tend to sound the same if you bother to listen to them doesn't it?
Then there's Wannabe Senator/Tea Party Crown Prince Rand Paul who said he thinks the Public Accommodations portion of the Civil Rights Act goes too far... but then he wouldn't try to REPEAL it or anything. Sure you wouldn't.
Poor Rand Paul has been so maligned See he doesn't want to repeal Civil Rights, he only wants to abolish the American's With Disabilities Act. Paul also thinks the EPA is Running Amok with too many restrictive regulations, Doesn't think anyone's going to miss a Few Mountains Here and There that have been mined into oblivion, and has endorsed banning guaranteed citizenship to people who were BORN in America.
Golly Gee Willickers, how much more UnAmerican can you get than that!?
Lastly there's Wannabe Senator Sharon Angle who is rapidly trying to SCRUB (rinse and repeat) any evidence of her past radical statements such as...
Abolishing Social Security:
Social Security and its attendant Medicare are broken and bankrupt systems because we, as voting citizens, have allowed congress to transform these systems from insurance programs to and [sic] entitlement programs. [...] Free market alternatives, which offer retirement choices to employees and employers, must be developed and offered to those still in their wage earning years, as the Social Security system is transitioned out.
On drill, baby drill:
As a long-term policy, America must expand its own domestic energy supplies. Sharron Angle would legislate to .repeal regulations that prohibit off shore drilling, drilling in ANWR and development of American owned petroleum resources.
On climate change:
Cap and Trade, which is based on an unscientific hysteria over the man-caused global warming hoax, steps over the constitutional boundaries of the federal government and is merely another way to tax the people.
On her plans to reduce the deficit by ... cutting taxes!
As your U.S. Senator, Sharron Angle will introduce legislation in line with her economic policy of:
* Pay back the deficit
* Cut back on spending, taxation and regulation
On the UN:
The U.N. continually threatens U.S. sovereignty, with endless rhetoric and treaties and it has now become the “umpire” on fraudulent science, such as global warming.
Sharron Angle has been endorsed by Minuteman PAC.
Or her argument that"We may need 2nd Amendment remedies" if Republicans fail to take back Congress.
Second Amendment Remedies eh? You mean remedies like these guys who Murdered Police Officers?
Yeah, THAT, that deafening SILENCE FROM THE GOP/TEA PARTY - punctuated by the occasional cricket - as they race each other clawing hand and foot to denounce Murdering Police Officers because of some Nutbag Radical Constitutional Theory!
But give a few more seconds and they'll start whining that they've been Wrongly Associated with Domestic Terrorists. Yeah, right ok. I'm sure Bill Ayers didn't mind his name being used to trash Barack Obama either.
That's right I invoked the dreaded Bill Ayers, who never killed anyone, and was never even tried, let alone never convicted of Anything largely because of gross Right Wing Crimes - including witness tampering, evidence planting and false confessions - in the effort to "Get those Dirty Pinko Leftists" by Herbert Hoover's FBI.
Oh yes, now do you see why those pesky 4th and 5th Amendment Rights Matter? Wanna see what REAL Fascism Looks like? Try this...
There's a reason you don't fight criminals with more crime - it backfires!
Yeah, they called Dr Martin Luther King Jr a "Socialist" too - the FBI illegally wiretapped him and tried to use that information to blackmail him into suicide - but it had nothing to do with his race. Right, sure it didn't.
Truth is, there is a difference between the center of the GOP and the most radical and potentially violent fringe elements of that group just as there is a massive difference between Dr. King and Bill Ayers (not that the FBI didn't try to Railroad both of them) - but in the case of the GOP/Tea Party and their violent radical fringe, that difference is practically paper thin.
The philosophy of the Weather Underground and Black Panthers compared to Dr. King were radically different - but with the GOP/Tea Party and groups like the Hutaree Militia the Philosophy is identical, only the methods differ - so far.
As I wrote yesterday about the Tea Party "Yup, I'm a Racist" T-Shirts - the real problem here is that when you openly admit you Hate Non-Christians, you openly admit you Hate Liberals and you Hate Socialists, you openly admit you Hate Communists, you openly admit you Hate Gays, you openly admit you Hate Scientists and you hate Doctors who dare to give all those Slutty Women an Abortion just because it's LEGAL ... When about 70-80% of the rest of the Nation includes Blacks (who tend to be Democrats and Liberals), Women (most of whom of may not get an abortion, but would at least like to have the Freedom of Choice on the issue) and Gays (who would like to be able to serve their country openly and have the FREEDOM to marry the consensual party of there choice) and what was that other group again, oh yeah DEMOCRATS and Liberals who happen to have been fighting to protect all those peoples FREEDOMS as well as YOURS for generations - then whining about being called "Racist" is like complaining about the Barn Door being open after all the pigs have run down the road, been picked up and already taken to market to slaughter.
That Ship has SAILED already.
We already KNOW the GOP Base and Tea Party are a bunch of Hate Filled Ignorant Bigots - now we're just haggling over HOW Ignorant and Bigoted.
And how dangerous...
