One of the most pathetic sights in post-midterm America is that of whining liberal elites still trying to demonise the Tea Party, with ever more ludicrous and hate-filled attacks. Instead of acknowledging that their own side took a massive hammering at the midterm elections and learning from it, the US Left remains obsessed with beating the conservative Tea Party, which played a key role in their historic defeat. Of course, humility is not a term that generally applies to sanctimonious leftists, and many of their leaders still behave as though they can act with impunity in the face of public opinion witness Nancy Pelosis supremely arrogant and partisan speech before grudgingly stepping down as Speaker of the House.
Two extraordinary attacks on the Tea Party in the past few days stand out. The first is by Howard Dean, former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, who tried to paint the movement as something straight out of a 1950s sitcom and stuck in a time warp. Dean, who ran for president in 2004, and used to be Governor of Vermont, had this to say to a Christian Science Monitor breakfast:
I think its the last gasp of the 55-year-old generation. Older folks have seen their life change dramatically. The countrys not the same.
Every morning when they see the president, they are reminded that things are totally different than they were when they were born. The economy, and the uncertainty of the economy fuels [the Tea Party movement], but this is the last gasp of a generation that has trouble with diversity.

When will America's sanctimonious liberal elites stop whining about the Tea Party...
When the Cultural Marxists destroy them.
This is BO’s attempt to copy Bill Clinton’s attack on the Right after the OKC bombing for his own political gain. This time, the Right better fight back or the state-run media will again succeed in demonizing them.
Again, a foreign press gets to the meat of the argument.
... same as it evah wuz.
I love to listen to them whine.
It means that they fear the Tea Party and all it stands for.
Thus, we have done our job and will continue doing it until the last socialists is out of government.
The reason liberal democrats complain and ridicule the Tea Partiers is because they are scared shitless about the movement.
The liberal democrats see a growing movement in the Tea Party and it is spreading over the entire country, gathering momentum.
But the Tea Party movement should not be viewed as a third party but instead as an activist watchdog movement over both political parties, weeding out those that refuse to stop the government spending, those that refuse to shrink the size, scope and intrusion of the federal government, those who see that the only answer to our debt crisis is to raise taxes, those whose ideology is to increase the massive government bureaucracy with constanr regulations for us all except themselves, those who govern according to their own self interest rather than governing by the will of the American people, those who feel they are above the rule of law, those who are in the pocket of special interest lobbyists, those who make secret deals behind closed doors, without debate and without transparency, those who violate their oath of office and a strict interpretation of the US Constitution.
When we hammer them into submission with the truth. Collect the videos of leftists calling for violence and rebut them with actual evidence as publically as possible as often as possible.
Nile Gardiner will be able to write a ‘Part 2’ to this piece, now that the Libs are blaming the Tea Party for the AZ shootings
Apparently Dean has never actually been to a TEA Party. If he had he’d see that it’s represented across races, sexes and ages. The biggest common denominator is not our age or race. It is that we think Government has far overstepped its bounds and needs to be reined in.
“When will America’s sanctimonious liberal elites stop whining about the Tea Party and finally accept they lost the midterms?”
Never, although at some point I hope it’s just their family that hears about it as they slip into total obscurity... =:-D
Not only are they scared of the constitutionally conservative Tea Party, they’re afraid a similar movement of progressive socialists will well up in their own ranks and target moderate Dems.
There was some evidence of this in ‘10 where Democrats in some districts did not support incumbents who voted against Obama care (McMahon in NY-13 is one example). Also in AR, unions spent $10 million plus to defeat Lincoln in the primary process in favor of the left leaning Halter.
If this becomes widespread, Dems don’t have a prayer of taking back the swing districts they lost this time around and they will lose even more swing districts.
When hell freezes over?
Every morning when they see the president, they are reminded that things are totally different than they were when they were born.”
........... Statement like that really tick me off. Progress, progress, progress. You are just too old to appreciate the good changes progressives make.
When the Sun Super Novas and Hell freezes over.
The Tea Party wiped them out in November. Hence the attack. We will send them packing in 12 too.
He appears to be a Lunatic National Socialist. New info is out he also hated the Joo’s. Kind of like Rev. Wright.
Another example of the mental la la land of the Left. Dean, you fool... you are over 55! Its your fantasy, not ours...
ain’t gonna happen. They’re scared to death of Constitutional Government. Its the end of the Harvard-Yale Federal/UN administrative career world-in other words-”their world”-should We the People prevail.
Flyover Country needs to cut DC down to size...rendering it a servant to industry, trade, education, agriculture, mining and energy production.
Presently DC has rendered Flyover Country ITS servant...and in so doing has become a profound impediment to almost ALL economic and productive activity in the US.
What drives this great animosity towards the Tea Party?
Undoubtedly anger, resentment and envy. But above all it is a reflection of the Lefts declining power in America, at a time when the nation is moving strongly to the Right. As Gallups recent survey showed, conservatives now outnumber liberals by nearly 2.5 to 1.
Debate is under attack by the Far Left because they can not win the debate.
Isn't that what happened in Arizona? A lone far left loonie (assuming he wasn't egged on by a charlie sierra Bill Ayers type) attacking an insufficiently leftist Democrat?
When the last one dies of old age.
It appears that that is precisely what happened.
Gardiner is one of my faves.

And those people should not be listened to who keep saying the voice of the people is the voice of God, since the riotousness of the crowd is always very close to madness.
The OKC bombing worked for Clinton and the left because they had all the orchestrated news stories of the violent right wingers before the bombing. The OKC bombing confirmed their rhetoric.
The exact same thing happened with the NYC car bombing attempt. Orchestrated news stories of the violent right wingers, then there was an attempted car bombing in which fertilizer was used. The fact fertilizer was used “PROVED” the lefts rhetoric before the bombing attempt, that it was a Tim McVeigh wannabe.
Amazingly when it turned out to be a muslim, the MSM went silent.
Bill Ayers (1968): Kill all the rich people! Break up their cars and apartments! Bring the revolution home, kill your parents - thats where its really at!
1969 - Ayers attempted to extort money ($20,000) from the Vietnam Moratorium Committee. When a member of the Moratorium group asked Bill Ayers what he really wanted, To kill all rich people, Ayers responded. When another peace activist pointed out that Ayers himself came from wealth, he answered: Bring the war home. Kill your parents.
1969 (December 27 to 31) Weathermen hold a War Council meeting in Flint, MI. Bernardine Dohrn comments about the Charles Manson-led Sharon Tate - LaBianca Murders Dig It! First they killed those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them, and then they put a fork in pig Tates belly! Wild!
“It means that they fear the Tea Party and all it stands for.”
I’ve known and worked around many liberals for a long time. By and large they view themselves as intellectually and morally superior elites who have a very distorted version of ‘noblesse oblige’. Liberal elites view the rest of the populace as inferior beings, if not downright barbarians. Belive me, this is how they see us. The Tea Party movement threatens their domiance over public discourse, if not their very jobs since so many of them depend on public funding of one sort or another. You are absolutely right — they fear the Tea Party.
“Howard Dean: I think its the last gasp of the 55-year-old generation.”
Liberals profess to disapprove of profiling people yet they are the ones who mostly engage in categorizing and defining people in terms of groups purely for political expediency. This is just another example of it.
What I see in AZ is a mentally ill person committing a heinous and irrational act. Judging from this guy's writings, he was certifiable. He fits the template of so many like this - Fromm, Hinckley, Sirhan, Oswald - sick puppies, all of them.
That goes without saying. Liberalism is a mental disorder. What sane person would think they had any right spending someone else's money.
When their ideas and the conveyors of their ideas in the media (talk radio, etc.) start winning an audience of people without having to have subsidies from the government (NPR) or rich goofballs (Soros) - to compete with those who do it well on the right. In other words, never.
