Stop With Trash Talking the Tea Party

I cannot believe the stuff I am hearing about the Tea Party movement.

Sit back for about 60 seconds and let’s take a common sense conservative look at the big dustup over Tea Party language.

Do me a favor Google Bush  Chaney and see what suggested searches come up.  You’ll find war crimes is the second suggested search. Hmm… I wonder where that “heated rhetoric” came from?

You can play with different combination – Bush plus a space and the letter L gets you bush lied as a suggested search(2&3). Click on that and you’ll find Google has 20,600,000 returns.

I won’t bore you with other suggested searches, just try a few for yourselves.

I suggest that you will find more incendiary language and threatened or implied or outright suggested violence in these searches than you will ever find in the Tea Party rhetoric.

What makes me crazy is that on all the news channels, people show that sanctimonious fraud, former President Bill Clinton, pursuing his lips in dismay over the possibility for violence… As if he ever worried about such possibilities when your Google search results were being documented…

Newscasters gaze into the camera with concern…

Can they not Google?

It is such an insult to our intelligence that these frauds would get out and voice concern when far worse happened when President Bush was President…

DO THEY TAKE US FOR FOOLS?

Yes, I believe they do!

Are you registered to vote?

If not, they really don’t care what you think.

If you are, will you vote this year?

If not, then it doesn’t matter what you think.

“You have a republic if you can keep it” our founding fathers said.

Are you helping keep it?

    Just for fun, try typing “bush w” in the search box. You can’t analyze social trends through a google box. And calling Bush a “liar” or a “war criminal” isn’t a threat of violence. It’s a rational argument that you can only evaluate if you read the allegations carefully. BUT, when you have people walking around carrying guns and shaking signs about blood for the tree of liberty, that’s a fairly direct message, isn’t it? The republic you’re defending is based on an informed and rational citizenry. If you support the republic, you should defend its democratically elected government at every opportunity from this kind of irrational fanaticism. I mean even when (or especially when!) you don’t like the current administration. I don’t support bad-mouthing the Tea Party either, but it’s important to recognize that they’re a brand new beast. There is no parallel for this during Bush’s term. The Bush protesters were anti-war pacifists!

    Hey M !
    Let’s take your comments one at a time.

    Firstly the quote about the tree of liberty needing to be refreshed with the blood of tyrants and patriots is from Thomas Jefferson. Now its not exactly a quote I would use since the kind of revolution I would like to see takes place at the ballot box on election day – but it is HARDLY unique or original to the Tea Party. Quoting our founding fathers is generally not considered in bad taste.
    Secondly, it is the highest form of patriotism to protest against government actions with which you disagree was how Ms. Pelosi et al described the Bush protests. It seems it is only when one is protesting a Democratic administration that the protests are unpatriotic? I would ague that only in a democracy CAN the citizenry protest government actions with which they disagree, and that such protests lessen the chance of violence since they allow for free expression of dissent in a peaceful way.
    Thirdly, the Bush protesotrs were hardly all anti war pacifists. Indeed, many of them argued we were fighting the wrong war – that we should be fighting in Afghanistan instead. Of course, now that President Obama has cranked that up – they are protesting it as well…? I guess consistency is not their forte?
    Fourthly, and most unpleasently, there were MANY Bush haters making jokes and off color suggestions about ending the Bush presidency through more violent means, including a Broadway play about a Bush assassination.
    So spare me the idea that the Tea Party is a new concept. It is only new in that everyday, ordinary people rather than radicals are taking to the streets with signs and spending their time and money in this way. The way you can tell if a movement threatens the party in power is by how vehemently that power seeks to discredit them. I would say the Democrats have gone a long way towards strengthening the reach and power of the Tea Party movement by their overblown attempts to discredit them. When you are crying the king has no clothes, you can bet his tailor is going to be sweating bullets!
    Finally, thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. I believe we all gain through civil discussion, and that is what I hope we can do here! More light, less heat! That’s my conservative view.
