Its sickening to hear people some I really respect sounding so wrong about the death of the Tea Party and how badly theyre doing in the 2014 elections.
Sure, the trolls keep repeating it, but even in Republican circles Im still hearing how the Tea Party has completely lost all influence in American politics and people are buying into it. To that I can only ask:
What are you, new?
When someone talks about the Tea Party being dead, or that the brand is damaged, or however the libs have managed to define it, you can bet its someone that doesnt get out much.
Only folks sequestered in their basements, hospital rooms, DC offices or likewise have been sold this bill of goods. Get out into actual America and its the opposite, trust me. What these naysayers are yacking about are Tea Party groups, and who cares? What I care about is conservative voters. We are the Tea Party and these opportunistic groups aside, weve been busy kicking ass in 2014.
Enabling the Tea Party Downers ignorance as always are the media ignoring the victories Tea Party voters are bringing this time around, despite us having to fight a three-front war against liberals, the media and the establishment GOP bent on destroying the very people who put them in power.
Tea Party candidate Dan Bongino with his Obama bashing and damn Tea Party ideas just barely squeaked by his opponent, 84%- 16% in Marylands Sixth. Why is it newsworthy? Because its the only competitive district in Maryland for the GOP.
Didnt hear about Dans landslide? That doesnt surprise me, there was hardly a mention of him anywhere. Hes a former Secret Service Agent who claims Obama is corrupt and not qualified to lead the nation.
If Dan would have lost that badly, you think they would have reported a little something about the Tea Party boy getting whipped? Yeah. But do a google news search on his primary victory and . yeah. No wonder you shut-ins think the Tea Party is dead, the NY Times, WaPo, HuffPo and all the other Pos you read act like theyre dead.
Lets jump right to Eric Cantor getting shellacked by Tea Party candidate David Brat. How many reports immediately sprang out announcing Brat was ignored by Tea Party groups? Its true but who cares? Brat was supported by Tea Party voters and this movement was never about groups.
The Tea Party is a true grass-roots movement no matter how theyve lied to you about it being astro-turf, financed and contrived by the Koch Brothers or whatever. Stop being an idiot. If the Koch Brothers could invent a movement to shift political power such as the Tea Party did in 2010, dont you think theyd have done it sooner and more often since then? Are you that stupid? Yes you are, so you need some more:
Ken Buck, Tea Party guy in Colorado in the 4th District wins the special election there but is it news? If he would have came in last it would have been. So Ill ask again why do you say the Tea Party hasnt won anything? Ben Sasse in Nebraska: Tea Party BLAM! Alex Mooney in West Virginia: Tea Party BLAM! Theres more -
How many Tea Party candidates have won elections in Texas this year? Too many BLAM!s to list, friendo. Theyve dominated and yet the Tea Party is dead? There are literally dozens of victories already this year in Texas for Tea Party candidates, including the ousting of Americas most senior Congressman, GOP establishment extraordinaire, Ralph Hall Who?
Ralph Hall! I screamed at the media He was beaten by Tea Party candidate John Ratcliffe! Wait are you telling me that an incumbent Congressman got beat in a runoff election for the first time in 20 years and by some Tea Party upstart, John Ratcliffe? That sounds like a story!
Well, not one that the mainstream press has any interest in. And not one that people hanging onto the dead Tea Party narrative are going to admit actually happened.
It happened my friends. Just like Tea Party guy Curt Clawson in Florida who cruised to victory in the 19th District in yet another special election ignored by the media and our buddies in Tea Party Denial Land.
Chris McDaniel is challenging the close results in Mississippi after the despicable Thad Cochran campaign. The media has taken the opportunity to use the Cochran re-election as an example of the Tea Partys demise. If anything, doesnt it show the strength of the Tea Party?
Its hard to beat a guy thats been in there for thirty or forty years especially when millions come pouring in from decades of influence. And what about when scumbags from the left start supporting the GOP establishment candidate? Any idea what Cochran had to resort to in order to fend off Tea Party voters? McDaniel would have gotten trounced if the Tea Party were dead, so stop saying that.
No, were not winning like 2010 but now we have the GOP establishment with the Chamber of Commerce, Mark Zuckerburg, Labor Unions, the evil Main Street Republican Partnership Super PAC and even George Soros money teamed up against us. So yeah, its hard out here for a pimp.
Were losing some races its true but were not just winning a ton of them, were making this election about which candidate can be the most conservative. Its forcing the GOP to admit theyre a bunch of Obama enablers. Theyre exposed and they need to be beaten before we can do battle with the Maoists.
But to sit there and claim the Tea Party is dead because a couple of greedy and goofy-ass Tea Party Groups are backing the wrong horse here and there is just making you sound stupid. Get with the program, buddy were still rolling and the general election is where we need to get it together.
Tea Party groups? Who cares? Tea Party candidates and voters? Not dead by a long shot, so quit saying it. Leave that to the wannabes.
tea party candidate beat thad in republican votes. only reason thad won is he got democrats to vote for him using liberal scum campaign tactics.
For every Ted Cruz we send to DC, I can endure 2-3 "unviable" candidates that beat incumbents.
What happened in MS has made me decide to financially support the Tea Party only and stop my support of the GOP.
We’re going to punish the repukes. They had to spend MILLIONS of their anti-Dimecrat money to stop us this year and we sure as hell aren’t helping them in November
It took 35,000 democrats to give him a what... 6000 vote lead?
yeah he just barely pulled it off, he didn’t even get 51%.
i wil still support good gop. directly. never through any gop pac. either it goes to who i want it to go to, or it doean’t go at all.
Limbaugh floated the idea today that ole Thad won because the cross-over Rat voters thought he was a “Democrat,” they didn’t know he was an “R.”
Listening to those disgusting robocalls again that sounds about right.
At no time do those vile phone calls to cross over voters state that THIS IS A REPUBLICAN PRIMARY VOTE we’re talking about - nor that Thad’s a Republican in the race!
LoFos..... thought they were voting for the “Democrat”!
There are good reasons his primary win is not big news, the main one being that it was a given, his opponent was a nobody with no money. And secondly, the race is a major longshot in November, thanks to the rat gerrymander of that seat. But Bongino is financially competitive, so here's to hoping.
The tea party establishment is taking some knocks, but the tea party grass roots is getting stronger. Even independents and some moderate democrats are starting to see what is happening in Washington.
Meadia Magical Thinking...
They think by reporting events that they make not only the events but the consequences as well...
re>THIS IS A REPUBLICAN PRIMARY VOTE
Shows how informed the voters are.
Results matter and so far the Tea Party is a popcorn fart. If enough people aren’t angry now after 6 years of Obama and 6 years of go-a-long Republicans, then a conservative change isn’t going to happen. Not saying “don’t try”, just the odds ain’t in the Tea Partys favor.
Yes, yes! The TEA party’s dead! Now, just run along and go about your business as usual. See you in November!
Mississippi shenanigans changed my understanding of republican ethics entirely. Contemptible corrupt scum.
The GOPe is the stoopid party. They’ve Whigged out.
miss Romney yet. A perfect example of dumb Republicans. Millions just do not get it, the lesser of the two evils. No such thing as a perfect candidate but the Republican voters selected Romney in the primary. We had the responsibility to support the voters regardless how some felt.
The Tea Party is not dead. Oklahoma had two great candidates. Lankford is a conservative, not as solid as Shannon, but I doubt he would be a RINO.
