Skip to comments.Illinois Rep. Halvorson: Tea Partiers are 'Fringe'
Posted on 04/05/2010 12:06:13 PM PDT by Mobile Vulgus
Attention citizens of Illinois 11th Congressional District. If you have attended a Tea Party event or are inclined to support them YOU are a "fringe" element according to your Representative, Debbie Halvorson.
Halvosron's office told CBS News Channel 2 in Chicago, "The voters in the 11th District are not easily influenced by the rhetoric of fringe organizations like the tea party."
On the other hand, Halvorson's opponent is very appreciative of the support he's gotten from tea party groups. Adam Kinzinger (www.electadam.com) has been very much in touch with the tea party movement having attended some events and worked with them to get the word out there about his campaign.
But the solid fact remains, Illinois, that your representative in Congress dismisses you as a fringe element. I'd say that this flies in the face of the facts on the ground when we have protests that country over that regularly turns out thousands of attendees...

We’re a mighty big fringe that seems to contain a fair number of democrats and independents.
Recent poll, 40 of TP are democrats and I.
Well of course, to full blown pinko commies, freedom loving individuals would appear to be on the fringe.
Yep, I’m a fringe radical, and I’m your worst nightmare. But not to worry, because after November 2 you won’t have to worry about me or my fringe radical friends.
Folks, the Democrats are going to get the biggest ass kicking in the history of their party come November. It’s going to be fun watching their reactions.
I wish it was only democrats.

You say "fringe". I say Vanguard of a new political army.
Tea Party Patriots are making a list and checking it twice. They know who is naughty and not nice. Please add this one to the list and support her opponent if he/she is worthy.
I’m thinking Democrats may be considered ‘fringe’ after the November election.
Only to the Hard Left is Marxism a “moderate” position.
Not so sure. All it takes is one single person from the voter's extended family to "benefit" from ObamaCare and voila! the whole family will say the new healthcare law isn't so bad after all. There is always going to be one person with a pre-existing condition or whatever who thinks they're better off. The Republicans should have come up with a suitable bill to address health care deficiencies when they had a chance instead of becoming the "No on Healthcare" party.
True conservatives are ideologues who are motivated by ideas that have nothing to do with race. We are guilty of telling people to get over race, to forget race, and move onto bigger and better things. The tea party exemplifies the conservative attitude towards race, and the left can’t stand it. The left revels in race, wallows in race, makes everything about race, because the left needs race to drive wedges between Americans, because the left needs hate and divisions to perpetuate their assault on liberty.
The hate fest of the left has been going on for decades, and it is at full froth now. The radicals thought they had the war won, but reality has set in. The American people are coming out of the stupor that elected Obamao, and gave us the thugocracy leading Congress. The tea party, consisting of Republicans, Independents, Libertarians, Democrats, whites, blacks, Hispanics, young people, old people, all the people who are afraid of seeing America turned into a Third World cesspool, is a threat the radical left can’t handle, so they do what they do best, ...respond with lies.
To them The Bill of Rights is a fringe statement .... the Constitution an outdated document ...
Time for that fence to be erected around Cook County...
Just keep throwin’ them stink bombs, demmees. You’ll see how many “fringe” voters show up in November.
