The Left’s Brutal War on the TEA Party Movement
When I got home from work Thursday evening I had to read the article that I had just been able to glance at in the morning. It originates from the an extreme leftist website, Alternet.org. I offered my comments below to the artcle, “Slick, Paranoid Tea Party Video Aims for Violent Insurrection, Fear walks the land, and the Tea Party Patriots are here to package and sell it.”
The author seems offended by the real fear many Americans have, including many TEA Party participants and sympathizers of the “dictatorial near-future government.” Well, duh, it’s at our doorstep. President Obama has been described as practicing soft tyranny. Some examples include:
*** refusing to enforce immigration laws,
*** refusing to submit a budget (past due since February 1st),
*** his Justice Department undertakes operations like Fast and Furious, which was designed to discredit gun owners to further his anti-gun agenda.
*** What about his Justice Department refusal to prosecute the New Black Panther Party because the victims were not a minority?
Like other would-be dictators Dear Leader seems to be comfortable operating above the law.
The author goes on to describe the Tea Party Patriot’s video, shown recently at CPAC, as being “a thinly veiled advertisement for violent insurrection.” What really chaps me is the actual violence and anarchy displayed by the Occupy Wall Street movement, and the refusal of the media to cover the less savory aspects of that incredulous socialist orchestrated movement. Compare any TEA Party event with any OWS event, you can tell a lot by the trash and damage each movement left behind. The OWS movement cost the taxpayers a great deal more than the typical TEA Party protest event ever did.
“Nightmarish bureaucracies” is an apt term to be used to characterize today’s EPA, Education Department, and Justice Department. Just as any business person, who must fight through reams of red tape and maneuver over numerous hoops, to get into and stay in business. The bureaucracy is indeed something to be afraid of… Look what the 2,000 page ObamaCare Bill with its 15,000 pages of regulation will cost Americans…
The slogans “We meet every need” and “Developing Every Need ” seem to me to be describing today’s Democrat Party and President Obama's ‘leadership’ philosophy.
The author cites the Southern Poverty Law Center as a credible source. It isn’t. It is a disreputable, bigoted leftist hate group, which seeks to malign and marginalize any organizations that are diametrically opposed to such ‘rights’ as abortion, homosexuality, and Christian-bashing.
This article was pure vitriol and hatred towards a group and a movement that just wants to get America back its moorings, its founding principles - Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government, and Free Markets. What in the world is wrong with that?
