Tea Party for Haters
Posted April 20, 2010on:
Beatrice: So, is it just me or is there somewhat of a racist party stomping around the USA trying to pose as a group who care about taxes and politics? I am referring to the Tea Party. I don’t understand this group, but from what I have read and watch on the news, they seem to be ultra conservative and placing blame on Obama about things that took place long before he was even in office. I am not into politics at all, but when you see people you know are questionable ethically, leading the movement and the same people who are part of the Fox network, one has to question their intentions.
Lila: I agree. Sometimes when I watch the news, I am shocked by their antics and beliefs. I think this group, much like the Muslim extremists, hide behind the veil of ignorance, anger, and fear. I cannot believe they still question the President’s birth certificate. That seems so ridiculous to me. I understand that the times are tough, but maybe they should stop blaming people and start doing something to help the economy. And don’t get me started on Palin. I think she is the poster child for ignorance. Every time she speaks, I cringe.
B: Palin does not represent most women and I agree, her voice is something to cringe at, as well as her presentations. UGG!! Toolman has a close friend who participates in this and he is all of a sudden Mr. Republican and ultra conservative. Totally opposite of his personality. I just don’t get it.
L: The Republican Party is even distancing themselves from the group. I think any time you have someone who is super passionate about something, that’s when you begin to see a problem. They get blinded by their beliefs and start to hate. I believe in being passionate, but not to the point where you cannot see the other side. These Tea Party followers are scared. They are scared about being forgotten and not heard. We hear them loud and clear. They just sound stupid though. Who started that group anyway?
B: I have no idea who started the group, but I would never join a group that carries posters of Obama or anyone in a racist way. I would never join a group that promotes prejudices. They seem to be taking our country back 50 plus years!
L: I would not either. I don’t want to be part of something that promotes hate, whether it be overtly or by chance. They seem like such an angry, cynical bunch.
B: Any of the interviews I have watched, the people involved are so angry and passionate over their constitutional rights, which I still haven’t figured out how their constitutional rights are being threatened. They are arguing that taxes have increased but are in fact at their lowest levels in many decades. I guess I should ask one of these tea party goers what they are there for. So what are they for?
