The Tea Party supporters recycle their language from the conservative movements of the early 1960s in response to the Kennedy presidency, the resistance to busing, gay rights and the Carter administration in the mid 1970s, and the opposition to the Clinton health care plan in the early 1990s.Hmmm, sort of a twofer there, Tea Party folks hate blacks and gays!
The poll reveals a deep conviction among Tea Party supporters that the country is being run by people who do not share their values, for the benefit of people who are not like them.Well, this is true, Tea Party goers for the most part have jobs and pay taxes, unlike 50% of the American public-Hey, I wonder how many of that demographic voted for Obama?- You know the guy handing out the free "Obama money" to all his Democratic union fat cat supporters.
They are significantly more likely than Republicans or the general public to say that too much attention has been made of the problems facing black people, and that the policies of the Obama administration favor blacks over whites and the poor over the rich or the middle class.This is my favorite quote. Clearly all those rich white people, you know the ones with jobs that pay taxes, clearly hate the poor and by implication of this article blacks, since according to liberals they are all poor and downtrodden.
Well, people with jobs that are managing a household are not stupid...you can only tax WORKING people so much before there is no more blood in that turnip to pay for ridiculous social programs that we just plain can't afford. NOW Obama and his buddies don't care because their retirement and healthcare is alllll paid for...but what about the rest of us? There is NOT GOING TO BE any Social Security for my son...maybe not even for me...what's going to happen to this country then? Unlike the idiots at the New York Slimes...Tea Partyers DO comprehend what TRILLIONS in debt means, inflation, taxation and devaluation. Not to mention a poor, less free country for their children. It isn't rocket science, except to the liberal elite in Manhattan.
BTW, I Googled the historian quoted in this article...hmmmm, no bias here....
