The tea party isn’t a bunch of racists or homophobes, they just believe that Obama was born in Kenya, that Islam is an inherently violent religion, that Muslims shouldn’t have the same constitutional rights that we do, that illegal immigrants (all 11 million) should be shipped back across the border, that poor black people caused the housing crisis,and that gay people are gay by choice.Sniff, sniff. Can you smell it? It's their fear. Their utter panic as they realize that they are going to lose power. Maybe even for the rest of their lives. That is what is causing this sort of nonsense. They cannot stand toe to toe on ideas, because each and everyone of theirs has been discredited.
And they get angry on command. Jump, doggies, jump!
But let's take a look at what those who are about to fail think. Looking at his comment, you see that we have the "Birthers" listed first, Tea Partiers and Birthers are not necessarily the same, but the author of the comment needed to conflate them As I have said before, Birthers are no different than the lunatics that claimed George Bush stole the election. Both seek to deligitimize the President. If more Republicans than Democrats believe Obama is foreign borm why does it matter? Does it matter that more Democrats than Republicans believe Bush stole the election? The writer is unable to reconcile the two because he lacks an open mind and cannot appreciate the nuance of the issue having had his opinions formed and handed to him by others. Let me help him. The difference is that both groups dislike the President of the party they oppose. It has nothing to do with skin color and everything to do with policies. Obama was well admired until he started implementing policies and laws that the people do not want. Even aside from his policies, his arrogance earns him an honest enmity.
Next our commenter moves on to items of religious interest.saying that we believe that Islam is an inherently violent religion. I would not categorize an entire religion as violent, but when that religion is used to justify violence, when people flying airplanes into buildings to kill innocent civilians, or cut off the head of some poor contractor, or a newspaper reporter and scream Allahu Akbar while they do it, well, I have a tough time understanding how their practice of that religion is peaceful. No, the better understanding of this comment, is the desire to surrender, a sort of Sonderkommando who hope that they will be beheaded last. And that's not counting stoning a woman for adultery, or requiring four male witnesses to prove a rape. Or, let's all go out as a family and watch the beheadings and amputations in the public square in Riyadh. Isn't that fun kids?
Yeah, I can see the attraction of non-violence toward that religion.
Next, our constitutional scholar commenter decides that the Tea Party wants to take away constitutional rights. I am sure that it is just his anger and fear that makes him recognize that 6 out of 10 people don't want the Ground Zero Mosque built there, even though 7 out of 10 agree that it is their Constitutional right. It's sort of like the commenter's right to burn an American flag, although I would advise him against doing it in front of a VFW meeting. It may be legal, but it is still pointlessly provocative, just like the GZM Iman.
Next, our intrepid commenter thinks that the 11 million illegals should not be allowed to remain here. Finally, he has hit on something close to the truth. The very definition of a nation is the ability to control its borders and who you admit to your country. If you don't do that, you are not a country, just a really big Wal Mart parking lot.. The 11 million are called illegal for the reason that what they have done is ILLEGAL. I know that the Democrats are looking to get 11 million more votes, but voter dilution through non-citizen voting is an attack on your legal right to vote. Oops, never mind, laws don't matter when it comes to staving off the impending destruction of the Democrat Party.
And he claims that the Tea Party blames poor black people? Do I detect a latent racism here? Has anyone else made this claim? No, I think our commenter is channeling his inner KKK. Get help! No, the people I blame for the housing crisis are Barney Frank and Chris Dodd, who used Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac as a parking space for out of office Democrat politicians until they got back in the game, ala Rahm Emanuel.
Finally, he makes the comment that gays are that way by choice. So, just for fun, let's take a look at what the principles of the Tea Party are as proposed by them, instead of their opponents:
No matter how many times I read this, I don't see any reference to Gays, minorities, Democrats or any other group that is being marginalized.
- Fiscal Responsibility
- Constitutionally Limited Government
- Free Markets
But their issues, My God: Fiscal Responsibility? Why aren't all the people who like to point out how Bill Clinton created a surplus also not Tea Partiers? And Constitutionally Limited Government? Okay, I could see where the statist Leftist nanny-staters who want to control my life could never belong. Might just explain our friend the commenter. And lastly, Free Markets - What a dangerous thought, especially since command economies work so well.
Maybe this explains our commenter's fears. If you believe in control of the government, economy and individuals as he does, you cannot fathom why anyone would not want the warmth and safety of the Government's loving arms, Initiative? Ambition? Hard work? None of those are possible for him to understand. But he doesn't need to fear, the Tea Party will not be able to completely remove the loving jail that supports him with their money.
