The New Drive to "Delegitimatize" the Tea Party


  • Liz 5 years ago

    Thank You, Thomas! You deserve a tweet. Very well written by a journalist who does his homework. Very refreshing after all of the garbage I've read today by so-called "journalists."

    My theory is that this administration (our govt elected officials,with the help of the media) is behaving in a purposely dysfunctional way - they know exactly what they're doing - and they know what they want the outcome to be - and who to blame. Dysfunctional people incite violence in others - but the tea partiers aren't reacting. Like Martin Luther King's peaceful marches & demonstrations, they are using their heads & acting in a responsible, civilized, lawful way. Big government is very frustrated with the Tea Party movement. And the media is using every Saul Alinsky/Goebbels tactic they can. And they appear to be very foolish & disingenuous in their mockery & ridicule of decent law-abiding citizens. The Tea Party Movement isn't going away.

    This is perhaps one of the most ludicrous pieces of nonsense I have read in a long time. Consider this literally INSANE statement:

    "Timothy McVeith an “anti-government, right-winger”? They might as well classify Leon Trotsky as an “anti-government, right-winger.” McVeigh learned to kill as a government employee in the U.S. Army and was inspired to blow up Oklahoma City by National Socialist author William L. Pierce's Turner Diaries."

    This statement shows a complete IGNORANCE of reality. Nazis in Germany were of course known as "National Socialists". They were completely RACIST. The Nazi's rise to power was predicated on the FAILURE of "liberalism" and "communism" and "communists" fought on OUR SIDE against these Germans in WWII.

    Apparently this author is too stupid to know this. This author is a friggin imbecile.

    Also, implication that McVeigh was somehow like 'Leon Trotsky' in his philosophy could not be further from the truth. McVeigh was ABSOLUTELY a right-wing nut case. He said so in thousands of comments in his interviews. He HATED the US Government and viewed it as evil. That is why he murdered men, women, and children with a bomb, and why he had no regrets about doing so.

    This attempt to deny this reality, and somehow classify McVeigh as being "leftist" reveals either brain-damage, complete ignorance, or complete dishonesty.

    It seems most likely that the last of these is true. As such, this author is merely a liar. Might be more interesting if the cause was a straightforward neurological disorder however.

    Let's not forget that Hussein & Bin Laden were once US puppets in the Middle East. Who made the military equipment we were fighting in Iraq? Terrorist is a term used by governments to label people who have become vocal with the opinions said government has tried to suppress. By declaring a War on Terror, big gov has open season on getting rid of any and all opinions which are inconvenient for their citizens to hear and think about.

    Tea Party has direct ties to oil corporations headed by David H. Koch and Charles G. Koch.

    Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) was established in 1984 by David H. Koch and Charles G. Koch of Koch Industries. "CSE received almost $5 million from various Koch foundations between 1986 and 1990, and David Koch and several Koch Industries employees serve as directors of CSE and the CSE Foundation.

    Citizens for a Sound Economy/CSE (1984–2004) was a conservative political group operating in the United States, whose self-described mission was "to fight for less government, lower taxes, and less regulation." In 2004, Citizens for a Sound Economy split into two new organizations, with Citizens for a Sound Economy rebranding as FreedomWorks, and Citizens for a Sound Economy Foundation becoming Americans for Prosperity.

    Freedom works and Americans for Prosperity are the key players in organizing Tea Party rallies:
