Skip to comments.Kathleen Parker Calls Townhall Demonstrators 'Fringe' and Tax Protesters 'Teabaggers'

Kathleen Parker has an interesting little shtick.
Few noticed her when she was writing from a conservative point of view...until she started attacking conservatives about a year ago. Then she went whole hog and has made a lucrative new career of attacking conservatives...while still going through the motions of pretending to be conservative.
Parker's latest column on the topic of townhall protests is but the latest in her role of pretend conservative. Here is how "conservative" Parker refers to those protesters:
Generally considered a fringe group, the demonstrators have been described derisively by Democratic leaders. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claimed that some were "carrying swastikas." Sens. Dick Durbin of Illinois and Chuck Schumer of New York have dismissed the protesters as irrelevant.

And she and her ilk are Anti-American Marxist Communist Taxtaking Enemys of the USA who hate everything about this country and honest hard working freedom loving people.
Huh? No she doesn't. She's a proud liberal scumbag.
She’s the Washington Post’s slightly more feminine version of David Brooks.....
By mid-November 2012 she will be a conservative again.
Ms. Parker, please show some honesty and declare yourself a Democrat.
This traitor is NOT a Conservative. She has shown her true colors with her kool aid drinking attitude when the subject of Obama comes up.
Kathleen you disgust me. You’re nothing more than a fake!
Just another case of McCainitis.
Kathleen Pahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhkah...isn’t she now called Kathleen Big Bootay?
She’s a Romney supporter, so why would this be surprising...
I'd honestly never heard of Kathleen Parker until she wrote one of her articles slamming conservatives that someone posted here.
And now she's gotten a little attention, she just can't stop herself. She might have gotten the idea from our 2008 presidential nominee.
I thought she had dark, tightly curled hair. Who’s that in the picture? Whoever it is, the Kool-aid has certainly gone to her head.
house phone for Parker, Kathleen Parker, it’s your credibility
She’s an Obama stooge. Nothing more..nothing less. She should be ignored. The libs will use her, just like they do all faux conservatives, and then they will spit her out.
The left always confuses tea parties with tea bagging.
It’s what they Know.
She went Noonan. She fell in love with a man who is half-black. ZIts an abusive relationship from what I hear.
Parker goes on to say:
I’m not so sure these protests are insignificant. Are my three friends really so far removed from such expressions of acute frustration? Lately, they have a new understanding of how uncertainty, complicated by unemployment and growing debt, morphs into anger.
And then, perchance, to rage?
Soi, Kathleen, does that mean that you believe this statement, or have you conducted some independent research to verify this allegation? Repeating a rumor does not prove it, but it does say more about the repeater than the rumor itself.
Both acts take balls.
It’s called the Huffington template.
Kathleen Parker: Just another useful idiot who has thrown away their kneepads to kneel on the bare ground before their chosen messiah. Ugh.
The stupid cow Pelosi couldn't even tell the difference between a swastika and a hammer-and-sickle. Typical. My head HURTS!
The left projects its own worldview on the right.
They’re unable to understand the right, because they lack the mental framework to do so. I can’t find the link right now, but a year or two ago, a study came out that basically said that—given five different categories of relating to others, conservatives used all five fairly equally, where leftists use only two—they’re basically blind to the other three.
That’s why conservatives can understand liberals better than liberals can understand conservatives. That’s why they’re overreaching so drastically right now, and so shocked and surprised by the vehemence and the truly grass-roots nature of opposition to their policies.
They can’t conceive of people self-organizing into groups—people must be led. So they assume that the right has leaders whipping them into a frenzy just like the left does.
They’re tragically wrong, but they don’t have the mental framework to even realize it.
Alinsky RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”
It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also, it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage.
In line with this rule, smirking media talking heads are calling the Tea Party attendees “Tea Baggers” to ridicule them.
This is being used against THEM in the “Socialism” poster depicting Obama as the Joker. Keep it up!
Kathleen whored herself out to Marxism. Good riddance.
Sooner or later the political whores and talking heads will realize LIES HAVE NO POWER. Words have power, yes, but when not backed with logic and reason, they become ineffectual.
We ARE the People, and we have decided we will not take it anymore!!
Those that make peaceful Revolution impossible make violent Revolution inevitable
She was never a conservative. Her stuff always tilted left. I have no idea why Townhall would want her. They might as well publish Ellen Goodman and Asspress stories.
She’s a chattering class elitist snob.
“Just another case of McCainitis.”
That makes her a McCainus.
Just sent a note to Townhall.com

Until you jettison K. Parker from your association of “pundits”, I will not visit your site. I will also inform my friends of your association with Ms. Parker, her obviously racist position regarding the POTUS and her complete capitulation to the Democratic Party platform.
Maybe she has a thing for Romney and is in a snit because he didn’t make the GOP presidential candidate cut.
I mean, mistress to a president must be a leg up—no pun intended—to being a mistress to a governor and then a ex-governor. I wonder if she’s touched base yet with Monica Lewinski?
I wouldn’t call that witch Sham Wow..
She looks like Gloria Steinem in that pic. She’s morphing like a werewolf......
She’s turned into another garden variety MSM clone who believes whatever talking points are handed to her.
Sad but not surprising.
Every once in a while, some RINO sells out to the left to get praise, air time, and money from the MSM. I had never heard of this woman before she “turned”, but now she’s all over MSNBC and CNN. Burn in hell, traitor.
Do any conservative publications actually still pay this fool for her droolings?
Amen. Every time we LAUGH AT THEM, they do something stupid. Scoff, and they stumble. Scorn them and they get flustered. Call their bluff, and they cringe or call names. Laugh long, loud, and hard, and watch the fun.
Kathllen Parker is a shrill, catty, jealous, inside-the-beltway wannabe who desires to impress her Liberal MSM colleagues more than she believes in any principles, conservative or Otherwise.
By the way, Kathleen lives in South Carolina, over in Camden, next county over from me. I am starting a “Relocate Kathleen” Campaign to grant her dearest wish — a brownstone in DC, preferably next to Rahm Emmanuel or perhaps Robert Gibbs pad.... If you wish to contribute, please send me a message :-)
I’ve said this before and I’m sure most people have noticed it, but Kathleen Parker only mocks the conservative viewpoint and it’s adherents. She also uses the terminology employed by the enemies of the right.
I’m curious about this, because she’s employed by the Washington Post and is advertised as one of their “conservative” writers yet she has nothing but contempt for conservative viewpoints.
Oh yes, one little note, the Republican party can’t drive a stake through the heart of Dixie. The republicans can ignore Dixie and make traditional southerners feel unwelcome but that would drive a stake through the heart of the GOP - if it still has a heart. LOL!
Kathleen Parker is a paid hack playing pretend. Rush Limbaugh has described her as one of those country club types born to wealth who think they’re better than other people.
David Limbaugh has described her as a friend of his, and I would like to correspond with David Limbaugh and ask him why he’s friends with her and what the attraction is but I’m more than certain that he wouldn’t respond to my email.
We conservatives can have fun poking holes in Ms. Parker’s logic but it’s just fun and not getting us anywhere.
