Democrats trapped by their seething hatred of Tea Party
Legal Insurrection ^ | 10/4/13 | William Jacobson

Posted on 10/04/2013 9:41:26 AM PDT by Lakeshark

Democrats’ seething hatred of the Tea Party movement has clouded Democrats’ thinking and ability to govern
**snip**
We have seen similar irrational conduct by every senior Democrat, from Obama on down to Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, and so on.
**snip**
Since the start of the Tea Party movement in the late winter and early spring of 2009, Democrats have been demonizing the movement in the most crude terms. Every time there is a public act of violence, the immediate response is to look for a Tea Party connection, which never is found.

It’s not surprising that in the past couple of weeks we have heard Democratic Party eliminationist rhetoric become even more shrill and hateful:
**snip**
This hatred has forced Democrats into a destructive non-negotiation position. Having framed the opposition as terrorists and suicide-bombers, Democrats have created a negotiation analogy from which it is hard to back down.

Democrats now will not even support funding they support, even for kids with cancer, because that would be giving in to what they perceive as terrorism.
**snip**
The demonization of the Tea Party leaves Obama no choice but to predict default on national debt, a threat he know does not have to be realized under any scenario other than by design, and to try to talk down the markets to pressure the purported-terrorists into capitulating.

Victory or collapse is not a good place to be in for a President of the United States. It becomes a disastrous self-fulfilling prophecy.

When a political opponent paints himself into a corner, that’s often a good thing. But not when that person is the President of the United States.

The unhinged totalitarian left is a sight to see. Prof Jacobson has it right, the media narrative is wrong, these leftists, especially Bambi, Reid and Pelosi have painted themselves into an absolutist corner.

I have a bit of a very intense dislike of them too, so that makes us even.

It’s becoming obvious that those who do not have God in their lives are in perpetual hate mode; they hate everybody and everything - including themselves.

Jesus is the only remedy for this evil.

The paid-for republicans will help them out of any corner they’ve found themselves.

The media will assist, as is their job. PBS (CPB) is still getting paid 400 million plus. Just doing their job.

In the USA, the Tea Party is the "Third Estate". The banking industry along with insurance and some big business are the "Second Estate". And, government is the "First Estate". Time to study the French Revolution; it's like peeking ahead at the last chapter to see how it all ends. Keep your powder dry, FRiends.

The fanatical left—Democrats—hate the Tea Party because they fear it. Why do they fear it?

The Tea Party threatens everything the fanatical left has spent decades putting in place, including the GOPe.

The answer is simple: The Tea Party represents American people who love Liberty, Freedom, and the Constitution. How do expect Marxists to react?

I don’t hate Democrats. I think a lot of them simply don’t understand what’s happening. I have Democrat members in my family. They only hear the left’s propaganda. For example, Obamacare is there to help people who cannot afford insurance on their own. That’s not to say there aren’t some Democrats who know EXACTLY what’s up. Some of them are no doubt pushing wealth redistributionist policies for the express purpose of making people dependent. However, I don’t think most Democrats are like that.

I guess you could say I’m more along the lines of, “Forgive them for they know not what they do!”

The Democrats will always find someone that needs help, BTW, and Democrat policies simply don’t work long term. If they did, how come the government keeps borrowing money? If these programs are successful, why can’t Democrats pay the bills? I say if you promise something, you have to at least pay for it.

Democrat policies, even if well intentioned, create dependency, and the number of dependents constantly grows. Why bother, for example, to scrimp and save for the future if government will take care of you no matter how foolish you are?

Consider Social Security. I say, “If it’s such a great thing, how come I was never given a choice to join it?” A Democrat family member replied, “Because some people won’t save for retirement, and then they’ll expect you to take care of them!” Well, who says I have to take care of them in the first place? Why is that my responsibility? Even if I agree I needed to take care of the truly needed, all these programs do are create ever increasing numbers of needy. In fact, people who do act responsibly are the fools, because we’ll be required to take care of ourselves AND the ever growing numbers of needy.

It’s not like this wasn’t tried elsewhere. There was a very good reason why nearly everyone in the USSR was needy. If you weren’t part of the party, good luck getting your monthly ration of meat, finding a decently sized place to live, or seeing a doctor. THAT is the path the Democrats propose.

Their fear and loathing is well-founded. When society collapses under the weight of their entitlements, they know that there will come a reckoning.

And good luck getting away from us in a Prius.

I wholly agree with Charles Krauthammer. The Tea Party was born because of the legislative activity and the laws they enacted during the two years of Democrat rule in Obama’s first term. Now, with a split congress, what goes around comes around. Or as Obama has heard it, the chickens have come home to roost. Obama, Reid and Pelosi are directly responsible for the existance and strength of the Tea party!

I never really understood the wild reaction to the “Tea Party” that we’ve seen for the past four years. Been to a few events , and it was mostly little old blue-haired ladies from the Federation of Republican Women and similar groups.

But maybe the ‘rats can’t see past their own worldview — their own “grassroots” supporters are all astroturf paid union goons, so they can’t imagine that there would be any real grassroots opposition.

They really are only interested in raw power, and can’t grasp that there are still people in this country who are genuinely concerned about liberty, and restoring the Republic.

I just hope the Republican “Leadership” doesn’t fold like they did last time, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

*The unhinged totalitarian left is a sight to see*

Every time I've heard Obama defending the hideous UnAffordable Health care Act I've laughed out loud.

Such ridiculous, over the top, lies are humorous in the same way that Jon Lovitz Tommy Flanagan was. It is also absurd to hear him talking about the majority of Americans who hate this Socialist pile of Pelosi as “extremists” and whatever nonsensical insults he can think of.

Odd how the Dems call the majority “people on the fringe” like Al “Millions of Degrees” Gore calling the majority of Scientists who do not believe his scam the “fringe”.

How low does your IQ have to be not not see that Obama is lying?!?!?

Unconditional surrender worked for FDR in WWII (although it may have lengthened the war). Obama thinks it will work for him. He hates the Tea Party at least as much as FDR hated Hitler or the Japanese.

On C-SPAN this morning Ramesh Ponnuru from National Review was a guest and one of the e-mails they showed from a Democrat referred to "teahaddists." Those leftists are so clever (on the rare occasions when they resort to name-calling).

There are just puppets having their strings pulled by their masters. The puppet masters want them painted into a corner for the end game they have planned. The socialists will have no choice now but to go all out totalitarian. That is what their puppet masters want.

The demonization of the Tea Party leaves Obama no choice but to predict default on national debt, . . . I don’t know how Obama steps the country down from the no-negotiation ledge on which he is trapped.

Obama will unilaterally raise the debt limit.

Will that be enough for pubbies to impeach our tyrant?

Their attempt to find a final solution to the tea party problem has proven to be problematic.

If they decide that, okay, the Tea Party won't kowtow, so let's go all the way, then you'll see their Kristallnacht of open hatred-pumping soon enough.

What decent Americans don't see is that, with this crowd of living-room tyrants (like the beer-hall supermen of the Third Reich), it's too easy to see megadeath as an option. These hothouse-raised, "red-diaper" Leftists are dangerous people and it's easy to see them going over the cliff and deciding to "go for it" -- total extermination of what's left of "Old America", Norman Rockwell's America.

It's hard to tell at this point which way they'll jump. But history is not encouraging. We've never had an authentic, absolutist totalitarian political movement strike root on our soil before, but now we have. And many honest people don't know what to do about these guys, now that we have no more George Marshalls and George S. Pattons.
