Why the Tea Party is a sham

The Tea Party is not about taxes, it’s not about a Government takeover of Healthcare (which could not be further from the truth). What it is about can be witnessed by their signs with Obama as Hitler imagery and racist, and homophobic slander. Comments like “What is happening to my country”, all this goes back to the same people at Palin rallies in the 2008 election. They still have not gotten over loosing the election to someone they think is not legitimate in almost every way imaginable.

A man still branded un-American, even not a citizen or not recognised as a Christian, despite his long-held Church relationships. Instead he is an Immigrant of some kind, who is President through a fraudulent election and on top of that possibly Muslim. I’m sure his race and name don’t help either.

Let me be clear, the Conservatives against Health care reform are not the target of this post, you have a right to disagree. This post is directly targeted at those on the extreme far right fringe, which is constantly becoming the new mainstream in the Republican party. The ones who hold up signs screaming “Get the Government out of my Medicare/Medicade”. Oblivious to the fact without Government there wouldn’t be these services in the first place.

You have to think most of these people are brought to these locations by people using them as pawns, by the Glenn Becks and the other far right crusaders. People who are wound up through the deliberate narratives spewed out by Fox News and Right Wing talk radio, who are not getting the full story and the bigger picture and most importantly the truth.

MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann yet again summed up my feelings more soundly than I can.

One thought on “Why the Tea Party is a sham”

  1. Mike,

    I think your comment is right on target. This is not even about racism as such, rather it’s about control. America is suffering the results of a two party system, which survives of course on division.

    I don’t like these terms and am sorry for useing them but it save time and space.

    The so called White Trash in America will never accept a black man a president. The Republicans know this and can play on the fact any time they like. The aim of the Republicans is to get Obama out as quickly as possible, his action with regard to big business and the banks does not sit well with them.

    Sadly Mike, I believe we are going down the same path for the very same reason. Control and power, that is what the two party system is all about. Politics is no longer about community, if it ever was?
