Posted on 01/24/2014 9:51:25 AM PST by rktman
Although the tea party's influence is "undeniable," it is not inevitable -- and it must be crushed for the good of the nation, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) argued in a long political speech on Thursday.
"They've won elections, stymied Democratic priorities and taken a sledgehammer to programs that are important to tens of millions of Americans," he complained.

Chuck U is an evil SOB. New York politicians for the most part are snail poop.
crushed for the good of the country.
Chuckie, be careful.. your holster is showing..
Well, one thing’s for sure - they really don’t believe that the Tea party movement is fading.
They wouldn’t expend this much energy and government policy to destroy it if it were.
This is what treason looks and sounds like.
“They’ve won elections, stymied Democratic priorities”
What???? How dare they!!! What do they think this is? A free country?
We tea partiers must be doing something right————
Chuck Schumer: “Single Party Rule is the only way!”
“sledgehammer to programs that are important to tens of millions of Americans,”
Really, name a single program the government has reduced and point to a single cost cutting to any program.

Yeah! They’re interfering with the democratic process by using the democratic process. How dare they.
ANY resistance to the party’s will, MUST be crushed.
The only problem for them was before now, they didn’t
have leadership ruthless enough.
Lets see the greasy bastard defend that.
Well, one things for sure - they really dont believe that the Tea party movement is fading.
They wouldnt expend this much energy and government policy to destroy it if it were.
If they cannot win they want to change to rules so that they have a chance to win.
Liberals will do what ever it takes to win and will undoubtably stand in the way of efforts to reform the Electoral College.
Free elections are the problem.....yeah, that’s the ticket.
He gets his talking points from the Nazis handbook, we must have only one party. He is defiantly dangerous.
I’ve got a better Idea: We first help all actual conservative New Yorkers to move, then we set Dynamite at the boarder with Pennsylvania, etc. and blow it.
Canada can have this drivel that isn’t welcome to all Americans.
The Tea Party has a grip?
The Tea Party is a counter revolution to the counter revolution of American Communism, and it scares the hell out of the left, as well as ineffective Republicans.
“We tea partiers must be doing something right”
It all comes down to money. If the FedGov were to shrink and have less influence, morons like Schumer/libs and the GOPe have less cash to line the pockets of various subverts across the nation. That includes these idiot Reps and Senators. They cannot let something stupid like a balanced budget and national debt get in their way.
The idiots (to them) in the Tea Party made the budget a rather hot topic in the national debate. They profit too much off taxpayer’s hard work and can’t let no stinking peon tell them what to do with “their” money!!!! For their own good, they have got to silence this voice of reason as it’ll cost them dearly ... not so much in the ballot box, but in their own pockets!
While eating (yes, I actually consumed food while reading the article) it occurred to me that maybe, just maybe, chucky’s been inbibing in some sizzurp or purple drank. Out of the mouths of idiots.
He’s delusional - what programs have been “sledge hammered”?
Chuck needs to be voted out.
ONLY to use a libertarian candidate as a “Shill” to STEAL some election, ALA VIrginia...
I cannot express my thoughts about Schumer without being banned.
The Tea Party has a grip?
There’s a reason we aren’t hearing much polling about the mid-terms: the results would moralize and encourage TEA.
His internal polling must have the RATS shaking with fear.
Look carefully at the language. The TP is a grass roots movement of the people. It is anti big government, pro low taxes, vigorously Constitutional. Politicians like Schumer who wish to “crush” this movement are tyrannical and totalitarian. Their ilk need to be crushed if our nation is to survive as a constitutional republic.
internal polling must be really really bad .. for them.
The left is going crazy, even when they are in power, and I’m sure this rant came from the top, which means something is brewing.....
Nope. Lower than that. So low that snail poop looks like stardust.
Schumer is scared to death that he may lose actual control of the senate. He controls all of the democrats and a slew of republicans.
There are 21 democrat senate seats up for grabs in November, 5 of which are retirements, 11 of which are freshmen, and 2 others are vulnerable.
In addition, real conservatives could possible replace Schumer Republicans in KY, GA, NE, MS, SC, TX, and TN. And he could count on Coburn in OK sometimes.
He is very, very worried that the United States Senate will be a far more conservative body next January!
What did Canada ever do to you to wish them such a fate?
In reality, the growth of the Tea Party directly corresponds to the outrage felt by conservative Americans to Obama's leftism. The left pretends to not understand this.
I thought Chuck said the Tea Party was dead. He should make up his mind what propaganda point he’s pushing and stick with it. BTW, Rush is demolishing this Chuck U speech on his show today.
It means the Marxists realize we’re about to bust down the door.
They’re realizing they have lost THEIR grip.
How or why they ever expected to maintain their illegally-gotten grip is proof that liberalism is a mental disorder.
The vast majority of upstate New York is conservative. We should let them create their own state and then let the New York City, Westchester County and nearby parts rot in their own stew. They suck out all the life out of the rest of the state. Without them, the rest of the state could thrive on red-state policies. The Southern New York State would then have 80 percent of all the dead-beats and it would force them to cut back on services across the board.
It should be becoming abundantly clear what is happening here. Liberals assume that it is their right to rule and that Tea Party patriots stand in their way.
Liberals have amped up their rhetoric which is sharply aimed at Tea Party Americans, Obama, Reid, Cuomo, Schumer. Recall Hitler did the same towards Jews.
Simultaneously, Liberals are aggressively, yet not totally openly, attacking those who stand in their way using the IRS, or subpoenaing those who transgress.
In my view, the left is deliberately working to ratchet up the rhetoric of hate and I will not be at all surprised if the Union goons or the Homosexual mafia does not soon take up physical confrontation wherein government official will avert their eyes and claim such actions were justified and no charges are to be filed.
And it will get worse from there. Be forewarned.
I suppose Chuck’s suggestion for open primaries is for the GOP only. He wouldn’t want Republicans participating in the currently closed Dem primaries.
If I could punch ONE Senator in the mouth it would be this turd.
Already happening with the knockout "game".
Not so fast there sparky, that is just phase 1. Then we push to central PA and repeat leaving Eastern PA and NY to their own vices. Allegheny will fall in line once they see that.
Yeah, folks, they’re BEYOND talking about this stuff...it is happening.
Dinesh D’Souza, the NSA, the IRS, executive orders, Patty Murray’s latest missive, the Democrat attorneys general REFUSING to enforce their state’s laws regarding marriage...you name it.
The Democrat party is trying...and succeeding....in their effort to dismantle Christianity, the Constitution, free market Capitalism.
What do we have to do? We have to stop it.
When do we have to stop it? Yesterday.
Perhaps we could require an IQ above 20 for his position....
Get in line bro, get in line.
Canada can have this drivel that isnt welcome to all Americans.
What did Canada ever do to you to wish them such a fate?
Ha! Good one. Canada at least had the sense to elect a Conservative majority for several elections. I sure wish we had a Stephen Harper in our Senate as the majority leader!
Well, we will simply have to do away with all that silly 'election' stuff, huh?
