Have you ever been to a tea party or are you basing your opinions of its participants on what you see on TV?

I'm basing this particular post on a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll.  

I'm also basing it on that fact that most of the stuff I see coming out of the Tea Party I find pretty objectionable, and, as a card carrying liberal of the first degree, my reaction alone makes the Tea Party stuff suitably conservative for most conservative Americans.

Sorry, couldn't resist the temptation.  I tried.  Really.

The gun-toting nitwits are also doing a lot of whining that those who point out the danger of their actions are "thin-skinned liberals," smearing their critics.

Here's a fun little thought experiment: Imagine if the Tea Party was black!

"Imagine that hundreds of black protesters were to descend upon Washington DC and Northern Virginia, just a few miles from the Capitol and White House, armed with AK-47s, assorted handguns, and ammunition. And imagine that some of these protesters —the black protesters — spoke of the need for political revolution, and possibly even armed conflict in the event that laws they didn’t like were enforced by the government? Would these protester — these black protesters with guns — be seen as brave defenders of the Second Amendment, or would they be viewed by most whites as a danger to the republic?"

I didn't watch the whole video.  When do they start exercising their Second Amendment rights?

You mean like images such as these (and no, I'm not comparing the Black Panthers to the Tea Party folks):

You could have at least chosen Lenin. Stalin is a murderous madman on the order of Hitler. If you wouldn't compare someone to Hitler, you probably ought not compare them to Stalin, either. If you want to call people liberal, compare them to Bernie Sanders or Al Franken or Dennis Kucinich. Wink

Nathanm,
That would not be reactionary enough.  Those are actually logical, sensible people, so would be unfair comparison to themselves.

When did Kucinich become logical or sensible?  His wife sure is hawt though.

Guido,

Those Black Panther pics depict a different time of American oppression. Teatards are not oppressed.

No, they aren't subject to ridicule and hatred at all.

They bring that on themselves....has nothing to do with hate. More like lack of an education. There will be no sympathy for those over 50 who lack intelligence on some level.

You're right, I don't pity you one bit
