Skip to comments.The Sliming Of The Tea Party

Politics: As the grass-roots activists meet with the Republican National Committee, the New York Times takes a look at them, deciding they are bitter people clinging to their guns. Meanwhile, leading Democrats plot their destruction.
No doubt the meeting between representatives of the Tea Party movement and RNC Chairman Michael Steele will be seen by uber-liberals as confirmation that the Tea Party movement is merely a franchise of the vast right-wing conspiracy.
In fact, Steele was merely doing what the Democrats still refuse to do listen to Americans frustrated by a government that ignores their wishes and dismisses their concerns while bulking up with power. They are the "we the people" part of the Constitution the Democrats continually try to make end runs around, the health care overhaul being a prime example.
The meeting between the Tea Partyers and the RNC was not an attempt to co-opt their movement. It was an attempt to provide a forum for their voices to be heard. And heard they were. Government is supposed to operate with the consent of the governed. The Tea Party movement hardly consents to runaway spending and debt that will burden our children and grandchildren.
Steele spent nearly four hours Tuesday at the Capitol Hill Club in Washington, D.C., listening to average Americans petition for a redress of their grievances. Judging from recent elections, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid are ignoring them at their peril.

No, it was NOT Michael Steele, click the first link in the post by Second Division Vet -— I made a posting in that thread, I was so amazed that someone interviewd, some “Mr.Stewart” in the northwest said that Birfers ARE Racists, really, it just appalled me.
The Left would celebrate the demise of the Tea Party movement and all its fruits. I expect to see many attempts to discredit of these concerned citizens over the next several months. They will be the butt of jokes. The looney Left will increase its chatter about the immorality of it all. Fine, I love to see their intolerance show.
From direct experience I can without equivocation state that you can absolutely bank on whatever the NY Times says in print about conservatives always comes down a great distance from anything resembling the truth. It is their paramount brand today.
The Oligarchy getting antsy when the peons and peasants start gettin uppity....
We just cannot catch a break... but then we do have each other and Reagan’s tools.
A little persecution can cause a lot of growth.
According to BigGovernment.com, they will try to identify one or two they can perhaps "turn," either with money or threats, to create a mole in the movement. The others will be subjected to a full-on smear campaign.
This is slimmy Chicago way, but also a sign to the leaders how effective they have been.
Where'd you get the idea that Michael Steele said that?
How can they destroy the wind?
Hopeless idiots, I hope they keep thinking they can.
All your tea are belong to us...
O’Reilly is slandering the hell out of the Tea Party movement. The other night he tried to split them into “law abiding citizens” versus “extremists holed up in the mountains with bazookas” (WTF?) before Sarah palin read him the riot act.
O’Reilly is a traitor for the Rats and the RINO GOP.
And becoming "vast-er" every day !!!
I like the way you put that!
