You can prove this? That there is a monolithic 'tea party'? Course you can't, so don't cut and paste from some lib/left webpage.

Tea Party Movement Platform

Quote:
Preamble: The Tea Party Movement is an all-inclusive American grassroots movement with the belief that everyone is created equal and deserves an equal opportunity to thrive in these United States where they may “pursue life, liberty and happiness” as stated in the Declaration of Independence and guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States.

No one is excluded from participation in the Tea Party Movement. Everyone is welcomed to join in seeking to achieve the Tea Party Movement goals, which are as follows:

1. Eliminate Excessive Taxes - Excessively high taxes are a burden for those exercising their personal liberty to work hard and prosper as afforded by the Constitution. A fiscally responsible government protects the freedom of its citizens to enjoy the fruits of their own labor without interference from a government that has exceeded its necessary size, scope and reach into the lives of its citizens.
You really think any of the local organizations go against this? It's run from the rich down to the bottom. It's a political organization coupling born again evangelicals pro-rich to the republican pro-rich...

Sure it proves it. Show me the "varied" agendas of the tea parties in each state. It's like the republican party has party headquarters in each state, but they follow the national agenda.

Sorry, but no one believes the tea party is made up of individuals who just happen to come up with the same ideas.

I used to like Julian Bond a lot. He always seemed to have good ideas and provided the support to back them up. Not sure what happened along the way, but now he’s nothing more than a run of the mill liberal hate monger.

Oh, I don't think you can call a person who has been the target of racial hatred his whole life as a hate monger. He said nothing to indicate that. The tea party
ARE racists and we've proven that on here several times with their signs and chants and calls of the President. Julian Bond is a good man....a black man....in the south.

You've just been watching WAAAYYY to many hours of Fox.

News Hounds: Fox Nation Attacks Julian Bond?s ?Hate Speech? While Ignoring Its Own

Quote:
n a race baiting thread which, like all the Fox Nation threads involving race, seeks to encourage vile commentary towards President Obama and African Americans, Fox Nation has a lede headline which asks “Will Pres. Obama Condemn NAACP Hate Speech.” It doesn’t get much more – ah – ironic than this considering that this is a blog which provides a platform for those who wish that President Obama were dead and those who describe President Obama and his wife in the most crude and racist terms. And while Fox Nation tolerates bigotry, they seem to think that when African Americans remark on the racism that is certainly prevalent in the USA (see Fox Nation) they’re being racist. That Fox Nation thinks we live in a "post racial" society is a testament to their delusional thinking which obviously includes a lot of denial! It’s truly bizarro world at its best – or worst, considering the tone of the discourse which, contrary to the Fox Nation “statement of purpose,” is hardly civil. It gets even more bizarre as the Fox Nation headline is the title of a linked article on a blogspot run by a “character” from the movie “Red Dawn.”

Yep, it’s true. Forget World Net Daily, NewsMax, and Frontpage Rag (whoops Mag) as source for radical right wing news about truth, justice, and the American way. The videos and commentary for the Fox Nation thread are from what seems to be a brand new blogspot, JedEckert.com. – complete with a little photo from the movie, starring Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen, which deals with an invasion of the US by the evil “commies.” So good-bye John Galt and hello “Jed Eckert” (the Patrick Swayze character) who seems to the hero of the anonymous author of a very right wing and race baiting blogspot. “Eckert’s” criticism of Julian Bond’s speech, at the NAACP convention, is quite the journalistic tour de force. It has been picked up by the right wing blog “Soda head” which asks if Julian Bond is “biased.” (Somewhere Jefferson Davis is smiling).

Julian Bond is a veteran of the Civil Rights Movement - a time when the intellectual grandpappies of Fox Nation readers were beating and murdering blacks who were fighting for the right to be full American citizens. He helped start the Student Non Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) and was the first president of the Southern Poverty Law Center –an organization that tracks the hate groups which the Fox Nation folks probably belong to and which is why many, in the right wing, revile it! But now, it’s “Jed Eckert” who feels that Mr. Bond, chairman of the NAACP was being much too “uppity” when he dared to criticize those fine, unbiased folks known as teabaggers: “We saw hate on display this summer, in town halls and tea parties, subsidized by corporations and their well funded fear machine across the country. Our politics have been poisoned by armed and paranoid self-described patriots drawn from the Taliban wing of American politics, a true fright wing. Once called birchers, now called birthers, spreading lies, and spreading myths.” (“Red Dawn was so John Birch). Perhaps Mr. “Eckert” didn’t see the crude racist signs at the teabagging events and maybe he doesn’t know about the swastika painted on the door of an African American Georgia Congressman after a raucous town hall meeting. Bond, whom “Eckert” compared to Rev. Wright, stated that “now race has been added to the brew, greatly increasing its toxicity. The real issue for many opponents today is that we now have a president that they believe is guilty of governing while black.” “Eckert” thinks that this comment is “akin to burning a akin to burning a cross on the White House lawn.” Right, cross burnings by the KKK are the same as a black veteran of the Civil Rights Movement saying that racism is a part of the resistance to Obama. So now, Julian Bond and Barack Obama are racists. All I can say to this movie character who is soooo offended by any reference to the racism that is still prevalent in this country (See Fox Nation) is “On what planet do you spend most of your time?”

So to conclude, I give Mr. Eckert some examples of the race baiting ignorance that he thinks is mythical and which columns, like his, serve to inflame. Funny, I thought conservatives don’t like it when minorities “play the victim.” Fox Nation sure has a lot of persecuted, angry white folks – kinda sounds like the Teabaggers – but wait I’m being a racist….

That reads like something from the 18th century, no wonder it makes your skin crawl.

Only when you buy a government that gives you more in welfare tax dollars than it gives anyone else. Do you KNOW how many corporations use the welfare checks as their profits? Do you know how many pay NO taxes to a nation that runs on taxes?

It's not natural selection...it's republicans turning the laws to protect the rich by attacking the poor.
