Cantor rival Mike Dickinson compares Tea Party to al Qaeda, Palin to bin Laden
The Examiner ^ | April 2, 2014 | Joe Newby

On Tuesday, Mike Dickinson, the Virginia Democrat seeking the House seat currently held by Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., compared the Tea Party to the terror group al-Qaeda on Twitter and claimed that Sarah Palin, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas and Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., are the U.S. equivalent of Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind the 9/11 terror attacks. Ultimately, Dickinson called the Tea Party and Sarah Palin "pure unamerican (sic) trash."

"The tea party is Americas version of Al-Qaeda. Ted Cruz/Sarah Palin/Rand Paul all on same level as Bin laden (sic)," he claimed.

"Tea party and Al-Qaeda: both resort to threats of violence and war to solve differences rather than reason and logic," he added, providing no evidence to back up his offensive and false claim.....

But of course liberals have nothing but tolerance for Muslims who kill random innocent civilians whenever possible. No, conservatives are worse because they don’t think as liberals do. Group think has become a religion to liberals, one in which, like radical Islam, everyone else is to be hated and dehumanized.

There isn’t a single Democrat politician that has a worthwhile idea for the nation. They are ALL partisan hacks and liars.

“The tea party is Americas version of Al-Qaeda.”
____________________________________________________
The Democrat party is a branch of the CPUSA with Bill Ayers as chairman. Obama is the reincarnation of Karl Marx combined with Vladimir Lenin.
I think that pretty much covers it.

Eric Cantor, Trey Gowdy, Mick Mulvaney and Jeff Duncan are trying to pass the Dream Act in a bigger bill very soon.

Vote for Dave Brat.

“There isn’t a single Democrat politician that has a worthwhile idea for the nation. They are ALL partisan hacks and liars.”

They don't need ideas, they just need insane rhetoric. Demonize, name call, make outlandish statements ... that is all that is needed in politics these days.

Americans are not to stupid to self govern. All their worthless attention span is good for these days are sound bites like this.

And this fool will probably win.

from the article:

“It’s a fact- the more educated you are the more liberal you are. Most tea party conservatives have only or less then high school degrees,” he said, again providing no evidence for his claim.

Of course, everyone knows that the millions of Obama voters, the welfare queens, convicts and drug dealers all have numerous advanced college degrees. /sarc

Watch for the LIEbertarian candidate to suddenly surge in the polls and have a miraculous influx of DNC cash.

It's happened in Virginia before...

The real problem is that Cantor probably agrees with him.

Mike D. is a Democrat. No need to compare him to anything worse.

What a shame that this son of Virginia's Henrico County exhibits such a shocking bit of ignorance, combined with an arrogant elitism, considering that such a Virginian might have studied and been influenced by the ideas of Washington, Jefferson, and Madison as he grew up.

That great intellectual giant and learned political philosopher who authored our Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson, was modest and humble in his assessment of those of less education than he, thereby exhibiting a generous spirit and wisdom.

"State a moral case to a ploughman and a professor. The former will decide it as well, & often better than the latter, because he has not been led astray by artificial rules."- Letter to Peter Carr

On the other hand, Jefferson had this to say about a class of politicians that Dickinson might hold in great esteem:

"If the present Congress errs in too much talking, how can it be otherwise in a body to which the people send one hundred and fifty lawyers, whose trade it is to question everything, yield nothing, and talk by the hour?" - Thomas Jefferson
Today, we have constitutionally-illiterate folks who call themselves "progressives," or sometimes "intellectuals," who have studied little of the history of civilization, few of the great philosophers, and their reading and discussions of "progressive" political ideas only makes them dangerous to the cause of liberty in America and worldwide.

Oh, for a Jefferson, who, at age 33, was able to articulate the philosophical basis for an American Constitution whose protections for individual liberty and limits of government power made America the destination for hundreds of millions of oppressed people from all over the globe, and the literal breadbasket of the world.

Is a rediscovery of its ideas not the very wish list that the Taxed Enough Already movement embraces?

If so, then it is Mr. Dickinson whose ignorance is on display!

It’s definitely shark-jumping season for the Demagogic Party:

Thanks 2ndDivisionVet.

If the Tea Party was like Al-Qaeda, men like Mike Dickinson would be in love with it, and bowing to it, and kissing it like a Saudi prince.

Keep it up Democrats. Your words might become self-fulfilling prophecies as you continue to try to subject us to your tyrannical rule.
