Skip to comments.Harkin: Tea Party 'every bit' as dangerous to nation as the Civil War
Posted on 09/27/2013 7:29:26 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) on Friday said that the Tea Party movement is just as dangerous for America as the Civil War.
A small group of willful men and women who have a certain ideology about how our country should run and what we should do cannot get their way in a normal discourse and votes, Harkin said. Since they cant get their way theyre going to create this confusion and discourse and hope the public is so mixed up in who to blame for this that perhaps theyll blame both sides.
That is the path they see for taking over the government. Its dangerous, very dangerous. Every bit as dangerous as the break up and the Civil War.
Harking made the comments as the Senate prepared to vote on continuing resolution that would fund the government past Sept 30. Democrats are moving to stip language from the bill that would defund President Obama's healthcare law.
Harkin said Republicans were throwing a temper tantrum and threatening to "take their marbles home" unless they get their way on ObamaCare, risking a government shutdown.....
Yeah! Those crazy Tea Partiers calling for adherence to our Constitution! You know, demanding things like individual liberty, consistency of the application of laws and congress working on behalf of their constituencies!
Those are extremist positions to the promoters of tyranny!
Just a random collection of pissed off constituents that have been given/taken a label.
What he couldn't bring himself to say, "That is the path the average American citizen sees for taking back their government. For us communists it's dangerous, very dangerous. ... Every bit as dangerous as the break up and the Civil War."
To which I say WRONG... If we the people of this once great country cannot retrieve and revive our government of the people, for the people and by the people from this oligarchy that has been stealing our liberty then the ensuing anarchy will be much worse than the Civil War. But then that's what Harkin, his handlers and his tools are hoping for isn't it?
Alzheimer’s victims really shouldn’t be on national television giving their opinions!!!
They are SCARED of a resurging TP movement.
That is absolutely true. I’ve worked around many Dems and can say with complete confidence that they all deeply FEAR the Tea Party. Dems are used to having their way with the compliant Republicans but the Tea Party fights back.
Like all bullies, the Democrats don’t like it when somebody pushes back on them. They can’t deal with it.
But the Civil War was a good thing in the end. Where’s the problem?
The RATS like the (official) commies and the Nazis *need* an enemy they can demonize to keep the shell game going. Doesn’t matter if it’s Sarah Palin, George Bush, Ted Cruz, the “tea party”, Rush - just as long as they can keep feeding their base something to distract them with.
Wow. any doubt about the depth of Fox’s bench would be rendered null with a brainiac like him onboard.
Let's get it on...
Harkin’s wiki page has him as having announced that he will not seek re-election in 2014, in a state which leans Republican (repub gov and assembly, the dems hold the state senate by a margin of 1)
The tea party is the revolution, amd a peaceful one but the whining is going to deafen us .
And exempting Congress from obamacontrol has given them a title of nobility - Obamacare exempt
-—Ive worked around many Dems and can say with complete confidence that they all deeply FEAR the Tea Party.
Great! Don’t Tread on Me!
“Harkin: Tea Party ‘every bit’ as dangerous to nation as the Civil War”
What he really is saying is that the Tea Party is every bit as dangerous to the democRATS and other limp-wristed liberals of his type and that “Please don’t get me fired by telling the truth about what we do besides “TAX & SPEND”!
Yes, we are dangerous and have a goal to eradicate everyone of you democRATS from the political scene. We want to make it OUR turn, that’s all.
Hey, ass-factory, what do you think we are doing RIGHT NOW? It's called 'normal discourse and votes'.
Trust me, you'd notice the difference.
“...Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) on Friday said that the Tea Party movement is just as dangerous for America as the Civil War. ..”
No, Senator. Not dangerous to the nation.
Only dangerous to leftover 1960s subversive socialist democrat dirtbags who want to destroy the nation.
All Harkin needs to do is look in the mirror.
Harkins has the wrong war. He should be thinking of the American Revolution - and that worked out just fine, thank you. Only the Tyrants were unhappy with the results of that war.
Spoken like a true slave owner.
