They've been portrayed variously as angry fringe elements, often inarticulate, potentially violent and merely Republicans in sheep's clothing or disgruntled pockets of conservatives blindly lashing out at a left-handed President Obama and the same side of his Democratic Party finally getting its chance to drive home a liberal agenda after eight years of Republican rule and six under a centrist Bill Clinton.

“28 percent were independents”
these same independents were responsible for zero getting elected- yet obama’s errand boys in the criminal liberal media won’t dare mention this...
Stevie, they ARE the rest of America.
Uh, I think Rasmussen has been reporting that close to 60% disapprove of the new health care law. That makes the Tea Party Movement more like the rest of America than, say, the democratic party. Or Steve Stromberg, for that matter.
When Does Political Anger Turn to Violence?
Published: March 26, 2010
The mercury is running high, all right, and it has nothing to do with the weather.
Public displays of political anger have been a staple of the American scene for the last eight months or so, but in recent days a handful directed at members of Congress have gone a bit further than noisy, sign-carrying assembly to window-smashing, spitting, threatening faxes and phone calls, even a cut propane line on a barbecue grill. ..."
Notice how the 60-something Tea Partier with the red shirt has arms stretched out like commie-terrorist Bill Ayers in the first photo (Ayers is 2nd on right).-ETL
I am the laziest speller I know, but I’m still embarassed by how I handled “characterization” in the post you responded to.
Bill Ayers, second from right...”
I would have paid BIG money to have run across him in the street then...or now, actually.
The Tea Party is made up of our neighbors, friends and family members. The arrogant media will go down in flames trying to paint the Tea Party into a corner. What a bunch of ignorant scumbags.
Also, not one of the tea partiers is wearing a helmet, like several of the WU freaks. That means that if they came to fight the police, they are going to get thier asses kicked a hell of a lot faster. Plus the’re a lot older.
For every 1 individual at a TEA party event, there are more than 10,000 Citizens who agree and would like to be there, but because of family commitments, travel time or other concerns cannot be there.
But - They will vote Conservative this election cycle,
Will the RNC blow it? I think so, based on their past
Survey: Four in 10 Tea Party members are Dems or independents (Uh-oh, there goes that meme)
There IS no intelligent comparison that can be made between the communist terrorist group Weather Underground and the pro-American members of the Tea Party movement. The Tea Partiers are not seeking to blow up anything or fight the police. Most of the police are probably on their side, as well they should be.
The MAN who banned “assault weapons” was a CENTRIST?????? Saounds like the rewriting of history has started.
Most of the comments below the article were absolutely disgusting. Democrats supporting liberty and justice?!
"Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal".--James (Jim) Cone,

SEAN HANNITY: But Reverend Jeremiah Wright is not backing down and has not for years and in his strong stance on the teaching of black liberation theology is nothing new. He had the same things to say last spring when he appeared on "Hannity & Colmes:"
WRIGHT: If you're not going to talk about theology in context, if you're not going to talk about liberation theology that came out of the '60s, systematized black liberation theology that started with Jim Cone in 1968 and the writings of Cone and the writings of Dwight Hopkins and the writings of womynist theologians and Asian theologians and Hispanic theologians, then you can't talk about the black value system.
HANNITY: But I'm a reverend
WRIGHT: Do you know liberation theology, sir?
"Their founding document [the Weather Underground's] called for the establishment of a "white fighting force" to be allied with the "Black Liberation Movement" and other "anti-colonial" movements to achieve "the destruction of US imperialism and the achievement of a classless world: world communism."..."-Berger, Dan (2006).

"they [the Weather Underground] employed revolutionary jargon, advocated armed struggle and black liberation and began bombing buildings, taking responsibility for at least 20 attacks. Estimates of their number ranged at times from several dozen to several hundred."

Actually 66 percent
That way, they won’t have their neighbors pointing fingers at them every time they respond to a deadly threat with their gun.
I had an Ann Arbor cop living next door to me for a while.
He saw me burning a big pile of brush one day and asked me if there wasn’t an ordinance against open burning. I shrugged my shoulders and told him that no one had stopped me yet. Within an hour he was dragging his brush pile together for a good burn.
The only thing that bothers me about that story is the fact that the two of you willfully contributed to global warming.
Its OK it was a cool summer.
Don’t worry, you’re secret’s safe with me.
It’s hard to breathe in Ann Arbor because of all the smug.
Fortunately the prevailing winds carry the smug away from here and out over Detroit and then Canada.
Just keep ignoring that the tea partiers are normal working Americans at your own risk.
Hey, don’t worry about it. You won’t be punished.
Sometimes we get in a hurry and things happen. lol
That's nothing. This is a sorry secret but I feel I can tell you -- and only you.
Today I couldn't spell "early." I simply and completely forgot how to spell it. My attempts were so far off that even spell check couldn't come up with the right correction. I tried "erly" and "urly" and I knew they didn't look right but I couldn't come up with the right spelling! And it's only a two syllable word!
Oh that's good.
