Photo of the Day: Tea party extremism

By Michael J.W. Stickings


I wouldn't want to tell you that the majority of the people I saw at [yesterday] morning's tea party were such hard-core patriots that they felt the need to walk around waving flags of treason and slavery...

Still it did strike me as noteworthy that your basic tea party crowd isn't the sort of crowd in which a Confederate flag is unwelcome.

You want political extremism? Forget Van Jones, ACORN, and the like. Most of the extremism of the left has been thoroughly dismissed and discredited by the Democratic Party.

No, look no further than the Republican Party and its conservative base -- and at the tea parties and town halls where the mob comes out in full force. (Beck, Limbaugh, O'Reilly and their ilk scream treason at Jones, who at least stated definitively that he didn't agree with the Truthers, and yet their entire movement, the frenzied mob of which they themselves are the puppeteers, is full of true believing extremists.)

As it did, once more, yesterday:

  • Some of these folks are true-believer extremists. Check out one of the sponsors of yesterday's rally at http://www.narlo.org/. Be sure to watch their video: The Coming Civil War. What's really troubling is that so much of their rhetoric has been adopted by prominent GOP politicians. Even Gov. Tim Pawlenty is now talking about the 10th Amendment. Geezzz!

  • I'm not sure I could stomach that movie, but I'm wondering how much of the rhetoric percolates up and how much trickles down.

  • HA HA HA HA HA HA.....just found this and it mad me laugh. "Most of the extremism of the left has been thoroughly dismissed and discredited by the Democratic Party.". You would have to be a FOOL to accept that ridiculous statement.
