Today’s Tea Party is Yesterday’s Facism?

There is a dangerous similarity between groups who beat up those who oppose them …


Political violence repeating itself?

While there may be many in the Tea Party who would not commit violence, there are others committing violence in the name of the party.

Democrat Pushed to Ground by Police at GOP Event

“We the People” are not allowed to descent against Republicans or Tea Party candidates? Apparently not.

What are these officers thinking?

Can you say excessive force?

Can you say law suit?

Can you say you’re next career will be as a mall cop?

Violent Revolution is on the Table?

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/10/22/stephen-broden-revolution_n_772391.html

If Tea Party members don’t want to be blamed for the speech, views or actions of the few, than those of us who do not support the Tea Party movement need to hear you denouncing those lunatic few in newspapers, on TV, on radio talk shows etc. If you’re going to insist – with FOX News – that all terrorists are Muslim, than by the same logic, we get to insist that all political  lunatics are Tea Party members.

The Tea Party is being branded as a bunch of nut jobs threatening the very Constitution it claims to love. Political descent as an American is one thing, threatening opened rebellion if you don’t get what you want is another. And unfortunately, Pastor Broden’s is not just one extremist view, we’ve all seen the signs at rallies, and heard Sharon Angle, Sarah Palin, Christine O’Donnell and many other “Tea Party” nominees make similar statements. We’ve seen the gun toting Tea party members at rallies, and watched as a Tea Party nominated candidate for the United States  Senate had his private security force arrest a journalist for asking questions he didn’t like. These are signs of a group threatening to rebel, and wanting to overthrow the very fabric of our Republic, and it is troubling.

When the movement uses slogans like “We’re going to take our country back” coupled with images of people carrying automatic weapons, and its candidates saying that “Violent revolution is on the table” than large numbers of people who are associated with the Tea Party, but who disagree with the rhetoric, need to speak out; otherwise you may find yourselves being found guilty by association. After all, members of your group have been saying the President is guilty by association to all kinds of people and causes, so Tea Party members may find the same to be true. What’s good for the goose, is good for the gander.

Prof Beck Gets it Wrong. Again.

First, we have a slight math issue. 35% + 33% + 33% = 101%

Second, actual numbers are, 55 million Republicans, 72 million Democrats and 42 million Independents. That equals “25 percent independents now, 32 percent Republican and 43% Democrat.”

Third, “Houston we have a problem,” either Beck is ignorant to what the real numbers are, which is bad enough, or he is deliberately skewing the numbers to play to his base. Makes you wonder what else he is just making up, or lying about, as he goes along.

As Senator Moynihan used to say, “You’re entitled to your own opinion, but not your own facts.”

Some People Are Just Born to Be Slaves?


Today (8 Oct 10) I heard Rush say, and I’m not making this up, “Some people are just born to be slaves.”

I would love to be able to ask, “And who would that be Mr. Limbaugh?”

And Rush, would huff and puff for a minute, maybe smack his lips a little, and probably say something like, “Well, you know … like the Jews and the Blacks.”

I mean, what other groups could Rush be referring to? Maybe the illegal aliens working for Meg Whitman and Lou Dobbs?

Today Rush also said, “We ( meaning men) should acknowledge the “role of attractive women to bring us beer and wear sexy clothes while we watch” the NFL.

Seriously? Republican women listen to this and think it’s OK? This is talk straight out of, oh I don’t know? Straight out of some small town in the middle of Missouri? This isn’t comedy folks. This isn’t some act Rush puts on. He is a small town southern  racist and sexist.

Rush further claimed,  “I don’t know of any Republican attacks” on President Obama.

Again, seriously?

My only conclusion is Rush needs his Oxycontin induced ocular implants checked.

He – Limbaugh – regularly – as in daily – attacks the President. Hannity does it daily. Boehner does it constantly. Palin does it every time she opens her mouth. Newt, McCain, shall I go on? Rush is a liar, and unfortunately there are great groups of uneducated, unwashed masses of Tea Party far right conservatives who hang on his every word. But, fortunately, they account for a far smaller sampling of the GOP than Limbaugh will ever admit. Let’s see, on a good day, 12 million listeners out of roughly 55 million Republicans = 21%.  Less than 1/4.
