Skip to comments.WaPo's Kathleen Parker on CBS: Tea Parties 'Dangerous;' Internet Journalism 'Like Terrorism'
Posted on 04/19/2010 6:10:28 PM PDT by pissant
On Sunday's Face the Nation on CBS, host Bob Schieffer asked columnist Kathleen Parker about her views on the tea party: "the rhetoric that's coming out from the right side, especially from the tea party....you think it may be dangerous." Parker replied: "this heated rhetoric and some of these words...that are pretty loaded, 'reload,' 'targeting'...there's a danger there."
Parker, syndicated with the Washington Post Writers Group, claimed she was not casting negative aspersions on the whole political movement: "I'm not saying the tea party people are violent or racist or any of that....I'm not saying that the tea partiers are bad people or dangerous," but warned: "I just think we have to be very vigilant....and be extremely careful, because I do think there is a lot of anger and it could become something else."

Kathleen Parker won an award for journalistic excellence.
What a surprise—a leftist who wants to criminalize anyone who disagrees.
When was anytime any conservative group rioted in the streets and blew up things? This woman is a nutcase ...
Shut up B.
Nothing but a pet for the Left.
hum the unconstitutional 14th amendment the 16th and the hits keep on coming. We should thanking them for helping us see the light with there backroom deals
Parker may have forgotten Hillarys view on the subject....
Kathleen Parker is my enemy pure and simple - oh by the way what are her creditability credentials?
In short who cares what she says, thinks, writes or experiences?
The oligarchy gets antsy...when the peons and peasants start gettin’ uppity!
Funny the dinosaur media never thought Viet Nam war-protesters were dangerous.
Seems like they sent out the Marxist-loving reporters/journalists/commentators en masse to disparage the tea partiers, their latest cliche of the day being to try to link them to terrorists.
That's nothing that a good stout rope and a lamp post can't fix.
Marxist propgandists raus.
And Hussein Obama won a Nobel prize. It’s amazing how talented these folks are.
I’m not saying kathleen throws inuendos against the wall, I’m not saying she is supportive of communism, i’m not saying she is part of a MSM conspiracy to push a sock puppet into the oval office, I’m just saying some journalists would like their elitist status and Old Russian Style Communism with the FREE arts elite (as long as the party line was towed) seems to be their choice of tea.
FUKP, you traitorous CINO c***!! Go slither back under your rock and take Christopher Buckley and Peggy Noonan with you!!
A supposed conservative writer! BS!!!
2DV, tell us what you really think next time. LOL

Yeah, like someone could get stomped and have their leg broken. Got it.
I'm not saying Kathleen Parker is a pedophile...
If she wasn’t a so-called “lady” I would have been harsh on her. LOL
Lol..ask about Bush and the crap sung at him at you’ll get a different answer.
Schieffer’s credibility is not so great. He has been a progressive/socialist his entire career and it shows in his flagrant left leaning bias.
"It's, sort of, like terrorism. You know, we don't know where to aim our bombs, so we can't go after a country because there are you know, there's no one place to focus on it. And it's the same thing with with the Internet. You can't really you don't know who to go after."
THAT sounds intelligent, doesn't it" You know, you know......! Shades of Hillary and Caroline, etc.
Just another WH mouthpiece who got the memo on this month's talking points from Rahm. Unless you think it conincidence they all get the same idea about what to report on and talk about at once.
That makes more sense once one understands that "journalism" has become "propaganda".
Kathleen Parker is soooooo 20th century.
I’m astounded, OK really I’m not...
How much longer is it going to take until the MSM-Lame streamers collapse on themselves under the weight of the bias and lies?
Is it really possible that the leftist socialist media believes that THEY can spew hatred and it’s OK, but ignore and forget the unending crapola that was thrown out by them and their ILK at “W”?
The KOS Kiddies and DemonUnderGround slung so much vitriol and death threats, death wishes and all other filth, yet there were no great cautions about THEM...
I wish there was a “That Was Easy” button that would just vaporize them all...we win.
There WILL be a fight one way or another.
WE THE PEOPLE are coming for you FILTHY SOCIALISTS!
We’re being set up folks. Better be ready for what’s coming.
How does she reconcile her hysteria with the fact that it is Republicans who are getting their legs broken by left wing “demonstraotrs” ?
Kathleen wants to think that the Tea Party folks are the problem and not the solution? ROFLMAO!
We moved to ‘The People’s Republik of Madistan’ when I was just shy of 10 years old. We had escaped that hell hole of Socialism called ‘Milwaukeestan’ because Dad had finally landed his First Good Job and we were movin’ on up.
Sterling Hall was bombed on August 24, 1970. My Dad took Sis and I to see the carnage and to show us up close and personal that A MAN HAD DIED because of the stupid hippies protesting the war.
Karlton Armstrong eventually returned, VICTORIOUS to ‘The People’s Republik of Madistan’ after his prison term and was allowed to open a business here!!
I hate this town. I can’t WAIT for the old dogs and the parents to pass on so I can get the hell OUT!
“On Aug. 24, 1970, at 3:42 a.m., the bomb, consisting of more than a ton of ammonium nitrate fertilizer soaked in fuel oil and packed in a Ford van, exploded outside Sterling Hall, killing a physics researcher and damaging 26 buildings.”
(Tim McVeigh before he was even BORN. Trust me; he studied the Sterling Hall bombing as a primer on how to destroy Oklahoma City.)
So, BITE ME, Kathleen. You and YOUR ilk ARE the enemy! Beotch.
She’s a four letter word that starts with the third letter in the alphabet. I saw the pathetic interview.
That’s right..talk about dangerous.
SDS, SLA, WU, now that was dangerous. Just ask their victims.
PLEASE FORWARD these links to anyone who has been lied to by the media and politicians about the Tea Party Movement, which of course is everybody.
The True Face of the Tea Partiers
Gee, I wonder how this fits with the New Orleans violence against those attending a Republican fund raiser last week? A couple viciously attacked by protesters gave the male a broken jaw, nose and concussion and the lady suffered a leg broken in four places when she was stomped after being pushed to the ground. Another couple barely made it to the safety of a cab. Not Blacks, not muggers but a mob of anti-Republican party, pro-Marxist anarchists. The MSM (except for Fox and local coverage) has ignored it -- guess it doesn't fit with their "only Tea-Party attendees are violent" scenarios.
The campaign to link the tea party with terrorism is in full swing with no response from the Republicans. Republicans should have an immediate response: “Yes, let’s do talk about real domestic terrorists. How can President Obama consider Bill Ayers a close friend given his history of violence against people and the government? How could Bill Clinton pardon the Puerto Rico terrorists? There is no evidence any Tea Party participant has committed violence so let’s talk about the real domestic terrorists”
Kathy, that is what you and your fellow drive-by media apparatchiks are. Tools for the stool that is currently occupying the White House.
Did someone read her column at the bottom of a bird cage or when they were wrapping garbage?
KP misses the bad old days, when 20 or so members of the elite MSM filtered the news for the plebes.
Dangerous to the parasites on the gov’t gravy train.
I suppose she only casts positive aspersions...
These people are "professional journalists". Sheesh.
We WILL toppple the Government-Media Complex in the United States, of which this Kathleen Parker is highly representative.
We are the true heirs to "Solidarity" in Liberated Poland.
They will be defeated. The People are rising up. We will prevail.
That we Shall Do until he and his cadre are Gone and a new revitalized America Returns, better than ever!
Republican party? What Republican party??? There’s a Republican party? Whoda thought ....
