There has been a lot of hoopla the last few days, as the Democrats have tried to paint the Tea Party group as a bunch of racist, hate mongering, violence promoting, homophobes.
It hasn’t worked.
Because, in general, the Tea Party crowd are mostly responsible people, who mostly have jobs, and who are educated enough to both understand and have an interest in what Washington is up to. The ones you see on TV are those who care enough about this country to pay their own way to get to the protests, often taking off work and traveling hundreds or thousands of miles to do so. These are the people that pay the bills with their taxes! By that, I mean that these are responsible adults who understand what is acceptable behavior. This is not the profile of a hate group.
This is so transparently obvious, that the Democratic left wing attempt to smear them is actually ludicrous.
Of course there are always the egg-throwers. Oh, wait, that was a Harry Reid supporter! < VIOLENCE >
Or how about that black gentlemen that got beat up by thugs at a demonstration? Oh wait, those thugs were SEIU members! (And why haven’t we heard anything about legal action on that one?) < RACISM – VIOLENCE >
Or how about those guys standing around the polling place dressed in military style with clubs, frightening voters? Oh, wait, that was Obama’s Black Panther fans! < RACISM – POTENTIAL VIOLENCE >
Or, how about that William Ayers guy that Obama used to hang around with? In whose living room Obama started his political career? He went around blowing up police stations, and later on became one of Obama’s best buddies. < VIOLENCE >
Or how about that “christian militia” group that was plotting to kill cops? Surely they were Tea Party members? Not so far as is known at this time. And even if so, it wasn’t sponsored or condoned by the Tea Party. But I heard news commentators ‘speculating’ about a link. That is how propaganda is spread, my friend.
How about Sarah Palin using ‘reload’ in a sentence, and using target symbols on her map? That this should indicate an intent to promote violence is a big stretch! An even bigger stretch would be somebody seeing that symbol on a map and deciding to go out and shoot somebody because of it. If you believe that, you had probably better take all the video games away from your kids, quick! < ADDENDUM – SEE THIS FOR EXAMPLES OF DEMOCRATS DOING THE SAME THING. Thx to Are We Lumberjacks. >
Have there actually been ANY Tea Party Members that have actually promoted violence, or racism?
Nope. Not a single one, that I’ve been able to find.
Don’t believe what the Democrats and left wing ideologues are putting on the news. They are, very obviously, trying to manipulate you. Seek the truth of the matter, and don’t become their tool.
Don’t become MY tool, either. Look at the facts, and make up your own mind. Think.
