Harry Reid: Tea Partiers Are Non-Violent ĎAnarchistsí Who Donít Believe in Any Form of Government
The Blaze ^ | April 23, 2013 | Jason Howerton

Posted on 04/24/2013 5:21:12 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Tuesday equated the Tea Party to a non-violent “anarchist” group because, in his mind, Tea Partiers don’t believe in any form of government. He was speaking about the sequester and other financial issues on the Senate floor.

“We have a situation where this country has been driven by the Tea Party for the last number of years,” Reid said. “When I was in school, I studied government and I learned about the anarchists. Now, they were different than the Tea Party because they were violent. But they were anarchists because they did not believe in government in any level and they acknowledged it. The Tea Party kind of hides that.”(continued)

Really? We're running the country? Because if we are, it sure isn't turning out like I'd think it would.

I wonder if he dribbles or drools while he spits out this crap. He knows that if he and the rest of the D.C.libtards keep repeating it over and over and over, a lot of morons will believe it. It’s such a shame to have a traitorous POS in his high position in the government. I am so ashamed of all of Washington . . . every corner of D.C. is garbage . . .

Harry Reid must have sleeping in class when the teacher was explaining the turn-of-the-century anarchist movement. It advocated Marxian anarchism. The tea party movement attracts a diversity of ideological perspectives, but they are all diametrically opposed to anything Marxist.

Hey Harry!

“Anarchy” is what you get when you have a president signing executive orders, an AG who won’t enforce the law, and a congress who sends up legislation nobody has read!

Maybe because he’s finally starting to realize that all the crazy leftist liberals are the ones using guns to commit atrocious crimes and that all the Muslims involved in acts of terror are Obama supporters and will put his head on the chopping block once they don’t need him anymore.

Sometimes what Harry Reid says angers me, but what angers me worse is that Republicans let this short mouthy turd get away with it.

He should be made to answer for his hateful rhetoric of Americans who do not believe as he does. Wher is McConnell?? IOf McConnell lets him get away with this, then Mccopnnell is guilty of agreeing with Dirty Harry.Wher is Boehner, Mccain, Lyndsey SAD Graham not one of these ballless incompetents have a thing to say when harry goes opff on his tangents.

Reid just attacked Republicans and our Representatives haven’t the balls to call him to task on it.

That must be projection of some type of bipolar disorder. As if there is nothing between complete anarchy and a government that costs about $4 trillion directly and likely trillions extra in indirect expenses from regulations.

Thanks, Harry, for admitting that the Tea Party is non-violent.

However, as an anarcho-capitalist myself, I can authoritatively say that most members of the Tea Party are decidedly not any sort of anarchists. Even the majority of libertarians are minarchists, not anarchists.

“We have a situation where this country has been driven by the Tea Party for the last number of years,” Reid said. “When I was in school, I studied government and I learned about the anarchists. Now, they were different than the Tea Party because they were violent. But they were anarchists because they did not believe in government in any level and they acknowledged it. The Tea Party kind of hides that.”

I see what you did, Harold. You determined the message - that the Tea Party are anarchists - and, ended any discussion by telling the low information voter that the Tea Party denies this "FACT" (in your world). Thus, people who identify with the Tea Party will not be able to deny your claim. You, sir, are a B@ST@RD!

Anarchist, as a named cause, have laid claim to the moniker.

Just as the classic liberal has been completely perverted.

If you want to call it “minarchist” that’s fine, however the fundamental basis for conservatism today is anarchy with guardrails.

The guardrails are the US Constitution.

The Tea Party just wants to be left alone. We want to be free from Gov’t, which can be interpreted as anarchy.

The difference of course is that the anarchist from the 1960’s and 70’s, can only define what they are against, not what they are for.

As a Tea party member, I can tell you what I am for.

This is a trailer for the movie “The Anarchist Cookbook”

Wild movie, and still one of my favorites.
