Smearing the Tea Party: Dissent is the highest form of patriotism
The Washington Times ^ | April 23, 2010 | Jeffrey T. Kuhner

Posted on 04/22/2010 7:02:49 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Liberals are portraying the Tea Party movement as fostering violence and sedition. During a recent appearance on NBC's "The Chris Matthews Show," Time columnist Joe Klein said that much of the heated political rhetoric, "especially the [statements] coming from people like Glenn Beck and to a certain extent Sarah Palin, rub right up close to being seditious."

Of course, sedition is a crime. It is the revolt or inciting of revolt against the authority of the government. Mr. Klein's message was clear: Conservative critics of President Obama are committing treason, especially the Tea Partiers who express their disapproval through rallies and protests.

Not to be outdone, former President Bill Clinton seized on the 15th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing to compare Tea Party participants to potential Timothy McVeighs.

"Have at it, go fight, go do whatever you want," Mr. Clinton said in a speech. "You don't have to be nice; you can be harsh. But you've got to be very careful not to advocate violence or cross the line."

In an Op-Ed column in the New York Times, he wrote: "There is a big difference between criticizing a policy or a politician and demonizing the government."

The comments from Mr. Klein and Mr. Clinton are disconnected from reality. The men are either ignoramuses or cheap propagandists, deliberately smearing Tea Party activists. The Tea Party movement has been peaceful and law-abiding. It is a public manifestation of anger at Mr. Obama's unprecedented expansion of government power. This legal, nonviolent freedom of association is as American as mom and apple pie.

The charges against Tea Partiers are not only false, but brazenly hypocritical. During the presidency of George W. Bush, the left's mantra was "Dissent is the highest form of patriotism." Apparently, that only applies when a Republican occupies the White_House.(continued)

Get’s better. Today Matthews did a end of program special comment about how negative ads are bad for democracy. But in 2005-2008 his show was one endless negative ad against republicans, and then he voiced no concern about the ‘Shadow Party’s” negative ads against republicans. Then it was democracy.

This guy is a complete phony.

I recall all too well the seditious, undermining of the fifth column American left that occured between 2000 and 2008 when they led us down this self-destructive path. Where was the outrage then? You reap what you sow.

Moreover, the antiwar left engaged in hateful vitriol that makes Tea Party rallies seem like Sunday picnics. Mr. Bush routinely was compared to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler. He was denounced as a war criminal. Code Pink protesters held up signs urging that Mr. Bush be shot. He was slandered regularly as a liar, imperialist and fascist. The left's narrative was that the Republican Party had erected a right-wing military junta: "Bush-Cheney-Hitler-Halliburton" was the antiwar movement's cry. "Bush lied, people died," was another slogan. It was not conservatives, but Bush-bashing progressives who espoused incendiary, violent rhetoric.

Mr. Klein and Mr. Clinton were silent when Hollywood demonized Mr. Bush - for example, in Michael Moore's despicable and patently mendacious film, "Fahrenheit 9/11." They were silent when former Vice President Al Gore claimed Mr. Bush had "betrayed this country."

This information should be trumpeted every time the Obamabots whine that the Tea Partiers are mean and nasty to their god.

Bush was demonized as no American President has been in our lifetime. There were posters of his head in a basket with a guillotine above, and no one minded.

And yet if we see Obama as "The Joker" on a poster (actually originated by a Dem, btw), they cry and complain.

The hypocrisy of Bush haters needs to be exposed.

Of course nobody in The Press called him on that. Of course not.

The irony is that those who are establishing collectivism in America are accusing the individualists of racism, whereas, as this article shows, racism in a society increases in direct proportion to the amount of the collectivism imposed upon it and inversely with the amount of individualism protected.  After all, if groupism is the main criteria for identifying people, skin color is the easiest one that people with limitations or handicaps in their ability to understand the world can cope with.
 
   Historically, racism has always risen or fallen with the rise or fall of collectivism. Collectivism holds that the individual has no rights, that his life and work belong to the group (to "society," to the tribe, the state, the nation) and that the group may sacrifice him at its own whim to its own interests.  The only way to implement a doctrine of that kind is by means of brute force -- and statism has always been the poltical corollary of collectivism.

   The absolute state is merely an institutionalized form of gang rule, regardless of which particular gang seizes power.  And -- since there is no rational justification for such rule, since none has ever been or can ever be offered -- the mystique of racism is a crucial element in every variant of the absolute state.  The relationship is reciprocal: statism rises out of prehistorical tribal warfare, out of the notion that the men of one tribe are the natural prey for the men of another -- and establishes its own internal sub-categories of racism, a system of castes determined by a man's birth, such as inherited titles of nobility or inherited serfdom.

   The racism of Nazi Germany -- where men had to fill questionnaires about their ancestry for generations back, in order to prove their "Aryan" descent -- has its counterpart in Soviet Russia, where men had to fill similar questionnaires to show that their ancestors had owned no property and thus to prove their "proletarian" descent.  The Soviet ideology rest on the notion that men can be conditioned to communism genetically -- that is, that a few generations conditioned by dictatorship will transmit communist ideology to their descendants, who will be communists at birth.  The persecution of racial minorities in Soviet Russia, according to the racial descent and whim of any given commissar, is a matter of record; anti-semitism is particularly prevalent -- only the official pogroms are now called "political purges."

   There is only one antidote to racism: the philosophy of individualism and its politico-economic corollary, laissez-faire capitalism.

   Individualism regards man -- every man -- as an independent, sovereign entity who possesses an inalienable right to his own life, a right derived from his nature as a rational being.  Individualism holds that a civilized society, or any form of association, cooperation or peaceful co-existence among men, can be achieved only on the basis of the recognition of individual rights -- and that a group, as such, has no rights other than the individual rights of its members. 

   It is not a man's ancestors or relatives or genes or body chemistry that count in a free market, but only one human attribute: productive ability.  It is by his own individual ability and ambition that capitalism judges a man and rewards him accordingly.

   No political system can establish universal rationality by law (or by force).  But capitalism is the only system that functions in a way which rewards rationality and penalizes all forms of irrationality, including racism.

   A fully free, capitalist system has not yet existed anywhere.  But what is enormously significant is the correlation of racism and political controls in the semi-free economies of the 19th century.  Racial and/or religious persecutions of minorities stood in inverse ratio to the degree of a country's freedom.  Racism was strongest in the more controlled economies, such as Russia and Germany -- and weakest in England, the then freest country of Europe.

 -- excerpted from the article "Racism" by Ayn Rand,  published in the September, 1963 issue of The Objectivist Newsletter, excerpts of which can be found HERE.

Be careful quoting Ayn Rand. I’ve been called a communist by Freepers for posting her quote that states “Money is the barometer of a society’s virtue” and “If any civilization is to survive, it is the morality of altruism that men have to reject”.

All because I argued that anyone employed by a company should be paid the free-market value of their work. They thought that a communist idea. And that companies should have the option to hire people, actual new hires, not volunteers... and not pay them.

Here at the Free Republic, we have supposed conservatives that call Rand a friggin’ communist! Sheesh!

(FANTASIC graphics/info. I'll bet Clinton wishes he'd kept his mouth shut)

400 liquid gas grenades -

I remember the fire raging and the local firetrucks being held outside the complex, NOT ALLOWED in until AFTER the whole compound was totally engulfed in flames and men, women and children burned to death.

And NOT ONE PERSON was brought to justice.

But today, with obyummer's new Rules of Engagement, - our soldiers cannot defend themselves nor get air cover when pinned down and being killed by the enemy "IF there MIGHT BE a civilian in the area." -

and if they capture a terrorist, they must immediately read them their Miranda Rights.

And our Navy Seals, who captured one of the worst butchers in Iraq, are undergoing court Martials because the cretin claims they punched him (NO EVIDENCE other than his word - which is taken over the Seals.

It's hard to fathom the workings of these peoples minds. Truly, we live under the rule of vile and evil enemies of our country.

We stand and fight for our freedoms now or neither we nor our children nor our grandchilden will ever know the freedoms so dearly fought for, so dearly paid for, over the past 200+ years.

It's OUR TURN to FIGHT FOR FREEDOM.

yeah, I ran into someone on the unpaid intern issue that asserted that the government has a duty to force the business to pay the intern even if the intern and the business agree that the work done by the intern will not be compensated in that manner.

THAT, in my opinion, IS communist and/or fascist.

“If any civilization is to survive, it is the morality of altruism that men have to reject”

-- I have found that most people who object to that phrase have not yet grasped the fact that the term "selfishness" has two meanings, OPPOSITE in ethical value. One, involving taking advantage of unwilling others -- is an evil (and in no one's long-term self-interest, FWIW), and the other, taking care of yourself and your family to the extent YOU decide to -- is a virtue. So if you haven't paid much attention to this distinction, I advise you and everyone else who realizes its importance to do so (and not argue apples and oranges). See THIS page.

BTW, I was first introduced to Rand when my sister sent me a copy of Atlas Shrugged while on army active duty. I had been called up from the reserves by President Kennedy for the Berlin crisis -- and I was stationed at -- are you ready for this? Ft. Meade, Maryland.

Not to be outdone, former President Bill Clinton seized upon the 15th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing to compare Tea Party participants to potential Tim McVeighs.

The fact of the matter is that the Clinton Administration, with the aid of its friends in the MSM, have covered up to this day the crux of the Oklahoma City bombing plot. It was masterminded by Islamic terrorists from the Middle East with likely connections to Al Qaeda! McVeigh and Nichols, the only two people to be prosecuted by the Clinton DOJ in connection with the bombing, were merely treasonous operatives at the bottom of the conspiracy chain, while the Islamists were not even mentioned by official sources. (See Jayna Davis' remarkable book, The Third Terrorist: The Middle East Connection to the Oklahoma City Bombing, published by WND Books, 2004.)

So in covering up the Middle East involvement in Oklahoma City, the Clintonoids and their pals are whitewashing a major national security lapse under their watch - and have continued to do so for 15 years! Much more convenient to blame the whole thing on a pair of isolated "right wing extremists" than to get into the much bigger problem of Islamic terrorism and the failure of the Clinton Administration to adequately deal with it.

Yep, that's the meme that the condescending 'Rats would want their lackeys to believe. I don't think that it will go over that well with the general population.

BTW, aside from the Tea Partiers, the big target of the WH and their friends the last week or so has been Wall Street bankers, especially Goldman Sachs. Again, obvious hypocrisy: Goldman Sachs execs and employees gave more to the Obama campaign in '08 than any other corporation! And now, O's SEC is suing them, while their CEO continues to be a frequent guest in the Obama White House. Kind of like Goldman Sachs is willfully allowing themselves to be used as a public scapegoat by their friends, while they know they'll eventually make out like bandits via the Obama "financial reform" legislation.

Exactly. Transparent as glass. Beware of corporate fat cats who want to “redistribute wealth”. They are not acting against their own interests, only those of their would-be competitors.

You hit the nail on the head!

Aside from Goldman Sachs, another corporate giant that is extremely cozy with the Obama government - and has contributed huge sums to the 'Rats, naturally enough - is General Electric. Since it owns NBC, CNBC, and MSNBC, it controls the pro-'Rat message that viewers receive over those outlets from the likes of Keith Olbermann, Chris Matthews, and Rachel Maddow.

An excellent little book on the incestuous relationship between the Obama administration and (some) Big Business is Obamanomics, by Timothy P. Carney, published by Regnery.

They are way to busy self agrandizing. Puffing each other up that is.
