House Dem: Tea Party is the 'real enemy'
The Hill ^ | 8/23/11 | Alicia M. Cohn

Posted on 08/23/2011 1:45:12 PM PDT by markomalley

Democratic members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) are ramping up anti-Tea Party sentiment this week, with one congresswoman calling the movement "the real enemy" in Florida on Monday night.

"Let us all remember who the real enemy is. The real enemy is the Tea Party," Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) said at a Miami town hall, according to a report by the Miami Herald. "The Tea Party holds the Congress hostage. They have one goal in mind, and that's to make President Obama a one-term president."

Wilson's comments follow incendiary remarks about the Tea Party from another member of the CBC on Saturday.

“This is a tough game. You can't be intimidated. You can't be frightened. And as far as I'm concerned — the Tea Party can go straight to hell,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said at a town-hall-style meeting in California.

Waters, who also attended the town hall in Miami, doubled down on her previous remarks, although she refused to repeat the "hell" line because the meeting took place in a church.

"We're not afraid of the Tea Party," Waters said. "In this struggle, we have to define who we are, what the president is doing and not let our voices be overshadowed by the Tea Party."

The Rev. Jesse Jackson, also participating in the town hall, compared the modern Tea Party movement to opposition to the civil-rights movement. "The Tea Party is a new name on an old game," he said. "Dr. King fought a 'tea party' in Alabama."

Hmmmmm, I guess this confirms that the dimoKKKRATS don’t consider RINO’s as the real enemy. They probably just think of them as patsies.

And a laudable goal it is; pity it can't be achieved immediately.

Being the real enemy of the Congressional Black Caucus is a true badge of honor. It should be worn proudly.

Tea Party is Goldstein.

Let the Two Minutes Hate begin.

I thought we were a nothing group. I wasn’t informed we hold the Congress hostage.

And where’s all the civility from the socialist left? That’s such hateful rhetoric.

No, that is not our one goal. That is merely a necessary pre-condition for achieving our actual goal, which is the restoration in the United States of a constitutional republic dedicated to the preservation of human liberty, a government with limited and defined powers, and a vibrant free market.

Fair enough.
The Tea Party is an enemy of socialism, and big government.
In many ways the expanse of government has served as a 'reparations' program through extensive affirmative action and quota programs ... So sure, the Tea Party is an enemy to this 'philosophy'. Primarily because we can see where the practice of this philosophy leads - just by knowing human nature, and reading history.
(P.S. - I don't consider myself a 'Tea Partier' - but I don't mind being cast as a fellow enemy of socialism and bloated government expansion).

His consolidation of the Mid East will be at America’s expense, financially today and militarily tomorrow. He did it for islam, not America.

While working towards that goal, it would be a major milestone if the POTUS should only serve one term, because his agenda is inimical to that goal. One term Obama = good sign.

The tea party wants all Americans to live free. God our creator created us equal and endowed us with our individual inalienable rights. Freedom is calling for all who yearn to be free. Break the chains that bind you to the government plantation and enjoy your righteous God-given freedom!

Obama says the constitution is a flawed document that does not go far enough in saying what the government must do for the people. But I remember another young democrat president saying, “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”

Martin Luther King Jr. did not ask for some people to be free and others condemned to government plantations. He asked for ALL of God’s children to be free:

“When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, “Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”

The Congressional Black Caucus should learn to curb their hatred and focus instead on creating an environment that encourages freedom for all:

“Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a man’s sense of values and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the beautiful as ugly and the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true with the false and the false with the true.” Martin Luther King Jr.

Yep. The Dixiecrats. They fought to keep segregation, but the blacks today have never been told that. It would destroy the democrat party if the word got out.

History like this, and other damning democrat history, is why the government schools don't teach history anymore. They teach Social studies, i.e., socialism. Imagine if people knew what socialism REALLY was, and who were it's leaders in the past.

As for me, I’d guess that the racist black caucus is throwing gorilla dust to deflect attention away from its black thug flash mobs. Won’t work. Here in South Carolina, the state charged the participants of a failed flash mob in Columbia under the state’s anti-lynching law. Each of the little welfare dears are facing up to 20 years in prison.

Watched this on C-SPAN twice!

Congressional Black Caucus Holds Town Hall and Job Fair Friday ·

On this ``Jobs Fair`` program they called for: ``We have to create jobs!- but the following terms were never uttered not even once:

`MESBIC`

`Venture Capital`

`free enterprise`

`set-aside`

`private enterprise`

`Godfather`s Pizza`

`entrepreneur`

`how to start a small business and create jobs`

`how to start your own corporation`

`how to get a loan from your local bank to start a business and create jobs`

how many jobs are held by illegals that blacks can do?

how to contact a black capitalist baseball player or basketball player to invest in a business you want to start in order to create new jobs

`Who here know how to write a business plan?

`how to attract capital from friends, neighbors and relatives to start a business to create jobs`

`how to start an internet business and create jobs`

`how to find start-up companies that may be hiring`

BUT the following terms WERE repeated perhaps 300(?)[exagg.] times:

`Get out there and organize.`

`Call and contact everyone you know and organize.`

`Don`t just vote- contact your elected local, state and federal representatives!`

`Get out there and organize cause I am an organizer.` [Walters -LA]

Contact seniors and get them some ID`s coz they need ID` s in order to vote!`

`If you organize, then you have power.`

`The stimulus didn`t stimulate or create jobs- it stabilized the economy from getting worse and prevented more jobs from being lost.` [Green-TX]

`The Tea Party was responsible for the financial collapse.`-[Walters-LA]

`Our Democratically controlled Congress before 2010 would pass jobs bills but they couldn`t get past the Senate`

Commentator:`

- ``Wait -didn`t the Democrats control both Houses of Congress?`` [Then the commentator mentioned 3 DEMOCRATIC senators who voted against said bills in the Senate.

Commentator- `Shouldn`t you be speaking with these Democratic senators that voted against these jobs bills?`

HAHAHAHAHA -The Black Caucus really is the Party of the Jackass!

Their party of Black Caucus donkeys is alive and living well with their ever-mounting pile of donkey manure within their empty mule-headed skulls indeed!

Not only that, but they desperately need to create a villian to distract voters from the mediocrity that is in the white house and incidentally leading their party. They are coordinating with the MSM’s “Goldwater” strategy which is already in effect. The object is to try and scare the country into believing that the conservative opposition is nuts. RINOs will be RINOs, and the Democrat hacks in DC and the press know that so called “moderates” will automatically run to the left whenever conservatives make their voices heard. But the reason why the Democrats are turning further in this direction is because everyone knows that they have nothing to run on, no credibility, and much to apologize for.

Yes and that other young democrat president was murdered. I hold thoughts he was murdered by the same cabal that raised Obama from the pits to prevent the use of actual USA treasury dollars instead of Fed Reserve notes. When history is fully disclosed I believe the many acts intended to destroy our Nations independent exceptionalism over the years will be exposed.

Ahhhh, no.

The TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party wants to reduce taxes.

You know, the half that pays the taxes wants some input into the process, since it's their money.
