A left-wing Tea Party may be closer than you think

After supposed RINO Thad Cochran relied in part on African-American voters to defeat Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel and win the Mississippi GOP’s nomination to the Senate, FreedomWorks president Matt Kibbe was very upset. Kibbe was so angry, in fact, that he was moved to petulantly declare, “If the only way the K Street wing of the GOP establishment can win is by courting Democrats to vote in GOP primaries then we’ve already won.” This Black Knight-like declaration of victory following conspicuous defeat was widely mocked as yet another example of the Tea Party’s preference to curate reality.

Salon editors are as stupid as all other Leftists. There has always been a far left “TEA” party. Its the Democratic Party post 1968.

The liberals can’t have their own successful Tea Party because the media, Congress, President, and biggest donors are are leftists already. There’s not much more room on the left to make a ruckus big enough to head further left.

Oh, and don’t forget, the smallest minority calls themselves “Liberal” or “Progressive,” despite a rather larger number voting for the same.

The GOPe thinks it can win by mobilizing the Low Information Voter base. The democrats pretty much have that segment of voting population wrapped up, so it’s not going to help them in the general election.

That’s right.

Progressives are nasty bastards.

Let’s see. They had their “No Labels” Party. That didn’t work out. Then they had their “Coffee Party”. That didn’t work out. Then they came up with their “Occupy” fiasco. That didn’t work out...

Human Debris on Parade Party. Check out that picture. Every one of them look like they may have “issues” if you know what I mean.

And here I thought the smallest minority called themselves an individual or a person

They’ve already tried the Coffee Party, astroturf that soon fizzled out, and Occupy Wall Street, which disgusted the nation. I guess they can keep trying, though.

What the Democrats need is a protest party made up of moderates disgusted by the lying, cheating and anti-American Marxism of the Dem party leaders. Not all rank and file Dems support this and many low-information Dems don’t realize what their party has become. I encounter people like this a lot. They think Republicans are just exaggerating for political reasons when we say these things, but other Dems could possibly wake them up.

What the nation needs is an anti-mainstream media party, as it is the media’s corruption and propaganda that are at the basis of many of our problems.

For all their hatred of the Tea Party, they sure want one of their own.

Amazing that a group of people getting everything they want spending all their time crying about how they can’t get everything they want.

Wouldn’t be a Tea Party anyway way because the Tea Party has common sense.

A left wing Tea Party would be:

Espresso Con Panna Cafe Frappuccino

A disgusting mix of crap thrown thrown together by anarchist.

The Coffee Party

Michael Dorfman commented 8 months ago · Flag

I’m a Occupier, I wanna send the Dems to thge deepest opposition, and do thi again and again, until they’ll get, that the only reason for the Liberals to held in power is to rebalance this capitalist system with system fairness/ social justice. After Obama we are going to purge the Dems, like the Tea Party purges the GOP. Do you?

Consider the source folks.

Touché. I should have said, “smallest of the major political philosophically-identified groups.
