The Real Face Of Teabaggers At Today’s Tea Parties

April 15, 2009

These folks should get back to their day jobs and stop wasting resources such as cops and traffic officers.  And take a history course or two.

    I attended Madison’s Tea Party yesterday and must say I was blown away. It was really refreshing to see that so many people feal the way I do! That CNN reporter, who ever she is, seemed very uneducated. As a news reporter, you would think she would know her facts prior to interviewing any of the attendees. It seems she may have been living under a rock for some time! CNN has got to be fealing pretty dumb right now. Hope she doesn’t lose her job or anything. But it may be a good idea if CNN gives her a break to catch up with the facts.Maybe time to read a paper, a current book, or watch the news or something. “Probably not CNN.”They are losing there news worthyness and minds at that! Lets keep the president’s new dog, and Mashelle’s new J Crew sweater, pearl necklace with that ever so classic Barbara Bush style to US Weekly to report! I mean, OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The fact that no tea parties were held….or thought of…during the time that the crisis was building….or being created more fully…..matters I would think to those who attended yesterdays Republican events. It bothers me a great deal that these folks gathered yesterday to howl at the person (and policies) that are required to clean the mess up. Let us not forget who brought out nation to its knees over the past 8 years.

    Never has so many events plauged a new President. WWII was years away when FDR took over, and yet when Obama faces a whole host of national and international issues, and has the backing of the public to do so, it is those who lost an election that rises in alarm.

    I, and a small group laughed at some who used socialist and facist in the same sentence, and informed one person where the public library was in case they wished to get a library card. No, he insisted, he knew what was wrong and it was us who needed to ‘wise up.’ Now really. How does one talk with someone like that?

    As to abortion rallies and gay marriage marches the issues are clear. People know what are there for. You and I may disagree over the issues, but we understand the issues. That was not the case yesterday.

    I witnessed, and then saw on TV, the truly uneducated try to make statements and get latherd up about stuff, but got all the facts wrong. That was the proof that these events were staged and conducted by the conservatives in the GOP, and had nothing to do with the grassroots. The ‘grassroots’ were pawns to be used again by the party that is in love with corporate greed and tax cuts for the wealthy. This had nothing to do with the little guy, but only were used to make a statement from the top conservatives about their anger as losing to a black man for President.

    The “White Slavery” sign in Madison was vulger…and yet telling. The underside of rocks are slimy.

    Okay, you have me one thing. I did not attend any “Tea Party” demostrations during the Bush Administration. I did participate in 3 pro-life demonstrations along with my church denomination on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade – as well as participated in the one this year.

    Then riddle me this. Why is it when people protest the government for it’s ever increasing girth they are “a bunch of malcontents who lost an election and wanted to vent” but when there are demonstrations in CA over Prop 8 and a woman gets her cross destroyed by Prop 8 demonstrators they are considered at least in the MSM eyes doing their All-American Duty to protest?

    I do not for one minute think that any CNN reported acted as you have described. Not for a second.

    As you are aware, since you read here, I did not post anything about the tea parties until after they were over. My sense throughout was that they were really (you are not part of this discription) a bunch of malcontents who lost an election and wanted to vent. The only thing I missed was also how uneducated most of these folks truly are. I was stunned in some cases to hear the rationale for their being so anti-government. I also, as did anyone only half-listening, come to understand they had no facts, just bluster and a highly political point of view. And I was also struck my how often those pushing these rallies tried to make it seem they were not controlled by the conservatives within the GOP. There was such an attempt to make these rallies to appear like they wre just akin to mushrooms popping out of the ground. (And we know where mushrooms grow best…..)

    Finally, I was wondering if you could provide the date and place of the tea party you attended while Bush was in the White House.

    I didn’t go to Journalism school, but, I would imagine one of the very first things they teach is don’t go into a story with a chip on your shoulder. This CNN babe had one the size of the Sears Tower.

    Second, Hugh Hewitt was playing that clip up last night. Not as a victim but as how unprofessional the CNN chick was in her reporting. It was hilarious.

    Third, I was standing 30 feet or so away from her. She paid the guy with the Obama as Hitler sign off. Sounds like he was a plant to me by the left wing.

    Finally, if you were at a rally for Gay Marriage in Madison, and a FOX reporter started off the story with “This rally was funded by George Soros and several extreme left wing interests and MSNBC.” Wouldn’t you be a little miffed???

    “It’s anti-government.”

    It’s also anti-history. As for the last guy on Lincoln and history, Abe instituted the first income tax.

    Well, I wonder if that reporter ever asked a liberal protester if calling Bush a fascist was too harsh? I imagine not. Why then get her undies in a bunch when someone calls Obama a fascist?

    The reporter then goes on to mention that Illinois gets $50 billion of stimulus money. Here she clearly misses the point too. Illinois will get $50 billion of taxpayer money. Her comment seems to suggest that the money is something he should be grateful for, not a loan which the taxpayer, his children, and grandchildren will have to pay for at a very high interest rate.

    Its also funny that she blames it all on Fox; at least she comes out of the bag for her own ultra-liberal network.
