"This is the uprising of the working class. We're redistributing the wealth," said Bryn Phillips, a 28-year-old self-described anarchist, as young people emerged from the store with chocolate bars and ice cream cones. (Full article at link.)
Yes I would.
I’ve never seen any riots, looting and arson going on at a TEA Party. To attempt to compare them is an indication that someone is doing way too many “recreational” drugs and might want to see a shrink, ASAP!
The anti-tea party propaganda is absolutely disgusting.
England has a permanent welfare-class, mostly white, which is very resentful of immigrants and anyone with a bit of ambition (birthplace of the soccer louts). They also have an agressive, isolated muslim community (birthplace of homegrown jihadists). The two groups hate each other with a passion. Sandwiched in-between are the law-abiding working class anglos and the hard working, entrepreneurial immigrants, who are scared of both groups. Recipe for disaster.
They're following Oboma. They think (and maybe they're right) this is what he wants people to do.
He's sure made a mess of things not only here, by globally.
How long before they storm the palace?
Absolutely. Who on earth (besides a deranged liberal) would try to draw a parallel between these race rioters and the TEA party? Forget grasping at straws, they’re grasping at air.
The media spin machine getting ahead of the curve demonizing the Tea Party thru projection. Any bets that this anarchist Phillips character is made up from whole cloth?
When the leftist/anarchist inspired and planned riots hit full force here- blame the Tea Party for the turmoil.
It’s classic Alinsky timed for the election year.
The yellow journalism of NBC, ABC and CBS fosters riots....and then they blame us.
The obvious equivalent is the black “flash mob” snatch-and-grab operations rather than the non-looting-and-burning tea parties, but I doubt we’ll be seeing that comparison in the media.
If you want to COMPARE this to anything, it would have to be The Arab Spring.
The English Summer!
I saw no mention of the Tea Party in the article. Where was the mention?
...In America you have the tea party, in England you've got this...
Right. Because EVERYONE knows the Tea Party's MAIN goal is the redistribution of wealth. And EVERYONE knows that the Tea Party's main hero is Barack "I think when you redsitribute the wealth it's good for everyone" Obama.
Seriously, though, kid, excessive drug use WILL rot your brain...
Yes, there’s that quote in the excerpted part on the FR page, but when I link to the article, the quote doesn’t appear.
Either the media in the UK is quoting the socialists here by claiming the TEA Party, (taxpayers) are the "real" terrorists, or this Phillip guy wants to slam the U.S. TEA Party himself.
This is the exact opposite of the TEA Party. We want smaller government and less spending. They want more more oppression and more free handouts from other peoples wages.
They and the Gandhi like U.S. tax slaves have nothing in common.
Tea Party patriots.
Only a fool wouldn't see the similarities.
I read the entire article once through, and this paragraph appears nowhere in the article. Where did you get it from? Did they redact the comment afterwards or did I miss something?
Well, if a 28 year old thieving anarchist said it, then it must be true.
A Short Course on Shariah & the Muslim Brotherhood
The palace has actual armed guards who will kill them if they try it.
Those shiny guys on horses? They drive AFVs and carry assault rifles when they’re in their “working clothes.”
The Yeoman Warders (Beefeaters) aren’t pushovers, either.
The Tea Party doesn’t riot.
They are not violent.
They don’t even use harsh language (much).
When they have rallies or protests, they clean up after themselves, leaving the area cleaner that whey they started.
If the Tea Party ever does get violent, it won’t be a riot.
You are correct.
It is not clear where the ‘tea party’ quote came from.
Please accept my apologies.
Here are some more links with that quote:
Anybody want to take bets on how much work Mr. Phillips has done in his life?
In classical Marxist economics the working class are those who are exploited for the benefit of the owners, with the value of their production essentially stolen from them for the benefit of others.
Somehow the term has morphed into applying, in both UK and US, to economic parasites who produce little but crime and illegitimate babies. They are supported in their lifestyle by value expropriated forcibly from those who actually continue to work.
Actually, he's got a point.
UK people upset with the government riot and burn.
US people upset with the government peaceably protest and vote.
Tells us volumes about the relative values of the two societies.
Tea Partiers aren’t on the dole.....
One of the comments at the Daily Mail article on last night’s riots said, “30,000 police on the streets for the royal wedding, 6,000 last night to protect the citizens of London from rioters and they wonder what we’re angry.”
