Tea Party Dead-Enders [Will Dave Brat make him eat his words?]
NYT ^ | June 5, 2014 | Timothy Egan

Posted on 06/10/2014 8:28:50 PM PDT by QT3.14

The Tea Party is five years old this election season, which means it’s done teething and spitting up on itself, but still prone to temper tantrums, irrational outbursts and threats to take its toys and storm off if it doesn’t get its way.

As a movement, it is down to a couple of former talk-radio hosts running for office in two states of the old Confederacy, Texas and Mississippi. And in the latter, the Senate candidate, Chris McDaniel, has given a keynote to a group that considers Abraham Lincoln a war criminal. It’s not hard to make the case that the Tea Party has been distilled down to it logical essence.

Who cares? He’s another dumb liberal writing for the NYT. You think he understands anything about the Tea Party?

Progressives fear the Tea Party like vampires fear the light and demons fear holy water. They have good reason to fear as the duplicitous amnesty promoter and faux conservative Eric Cantor found out earlier this evening.

Note to NY Times:

Cantor outspent Brat 10 to 1. Brat won by 11% of votes.

Texas is the Old Confederacy? We were the last ones in!

NOTE: I would like to split into five states whenever it would give us 67 in the Senate, which could be in November.

The usual condescending garbage from a journalista arrogant enough to believe he may declare reality and it is so. How’s that sneering crap look tonight, Timmy?

Cantor got his asz kicked. Hard.

Brat made it about Cantor’s Amnesty and now that Cantor has lost his supporters are screaming “What do we want? Immigration reform! When do we want it? Now!”

It was about amnesty and nothing but amnesty. Amnesty got its asz kicked. Hard.

If McDaniel wins the runoff they’ll be on suicide watch.

These liberal rat bastards at the NYT need kicked to the curb and left to starve, but I’ll take schadenfreude.

Cantor raised $5.4 million and spent $5 million; Brat raised $206,000 and spent about $100,000. That’s 50 to 1.

I think it’s significant he doesn’t call us “tea baggers”. That blew up in their faces (pardon the expression)

They can keep saying what they like but we are the wrench in the the machine. It doesn’t take a lot of wrenches to stop a machine. We don’t have to win every race to stop them or ultimately overtake them. The left taught us as much. Look what a bunch of radical pot smoking raping hippies managed to do? Now that they have risen to power they of course like most want to try to stay there forever. They talk change and diversity but that is not what they want. They want us to change to agree with their very narrow spectrum of diversity which always leads to greater and larger swaths of freedom ceded and government grown.

They depend on our acquiescence to transform our nation. They can not defeat us in open battle so they try to silence us and demonize us but there is something changing. Their screams of “racism” are ringing increasingly empty to those without jobs and who see them more concerned about interests of foreign migrants than unemployed citizens. There day is coming and their reign will end.

He probably would feel something of a hypocrite if he did.
