The Tea Party, a loosely organized but still scabby collection of pasty lower middle class white people with a penchant toward material excess (without the material attributes). Their intelligence quota stems from incessant and relentless 60 second TV sound bytes primarily emanating from an ideologically driven, half witted pundits exclusively airing on Faux News.
They advertise a strict constitutional interpretation of laws except where:
they don’t like it or
they find it deplorable or
their lack of education hinders them from interpreting anything
Their political ideology adamantly refutes “liberalism” as a divisive, take what you need and leave the rest ideology. Right wing extremisms moral fiber should be a survival of the economically fittest, Wall Street tested, limited government, puritanically religious, big fish eat little fish cesspool of a society that simmers daily on a potpourri of the relatively few haves and the predominate majority of have not's.
Promotion of Christian values plays well with this crowd. God never ordained this country to be anything but freedom loving, tolerant and prayerful. In practice however, Tea Partiers embrace dogma, intolerance and a version of truth not especially warmed by any available facts. There is no room for democracy in Christianity and, by the Founders’ wishes and careful tradition, little, if any, Christian screed should exist in our democracy. Jesus, according to Biblical reports, never sanctioned second amendment rights and wasn’t especially fond of radical racial extremists.
Since a plethora of these self espoused political bigots are often uneducated, low income information voters dependent on their Medicare, social security payments, their hypocrisy, political narcissism, and philosophical inversions reach only those who possess anti-eclectic thought processes, sporadic and inconclusive educations, and an intrepid desire to screw anyone who has failed to aspire to the success implicit in the ideology of the axis of idiots.
The lessons here are invaluable. If Democrats ( liberals, progressives and socially conscious individuals) are not willing to fight for the society they want, they had better learn too like the society they get. This will consist of an ingrained aristocracy, and a protector of an apoplectic dogma, a legal miasma that poisons everyone it touches and a system of government that casts its fate, finally and forever, to a ruling class not far removed from the concepts of Aleister Crowley and Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.
I do believe that if BROCK had gone the distance with this “chicken crap” fight that the Republican know nothings would have fell limp. Progressives tend to be fairly flaccid overall, and Mr. President you now have our attention.
With America and the world focused on Wikileaks and its "cablegate" chronicle, Americans lost sight that our President caved in and appeased the right by "compromising" on the Bush tax cuts. Something clearly that he was opposed too while running for office.
Tea parties have derailed Obama's plan for policy, especially when it comes to lining the pockets of the rich. Obama for his capitulation receives 13 months of extended unemployment. The rich keep the money, the poor spend it. If you want to infuse the economy Mr. President, one has to understand how to inculcate money to the recession for it to recover.
Tan man Boehner stated prior to the midterms that he would vote for tax for the middle class only "if he had too". Displaying your anger at your news conference today towards those whom voted in you was, and is, blasphemy at its best.
We at NFTOS are not disloyal to you Mr. President, but we are bound to principle, and we are in self defense mode. If you can't stand up for the democrats, then whom can? Stand for what's right sir! Your hast to tamp down this error is "baseless" sir, and we expect better from you! Stand for the convictions that you ran on, direct your ire to those whom would rather see you as "a one term President".
How pure are your intentions, what is your measure to be a Democrat? This lapse of focus for staying the coarse is a barometer for which the tea bags will expose you too time and time again.
Let me be clear Mr. President, your actions today certainly points to you handing the Republicans the keys back to the car. This template for this new Obama run administration is not the direction we voted for in 2008.
Your political career is a stake here, and we progressives have had enough rancid TEA!
- News From The Other Side
- When Roger West first launched the progressive political blog "News From The Other Side" in May 2010, he could hardly have predicted the impact that his venture would have on the media and political debate. As the New Media emerged as a counterbalance to established media sources, Roger wrote his copious blogs about national politics, the tea party movement, mid-term elections, and the failings of the radical right to the vanguard of the New Media movement. Roger West's efforts as a leading blogger have tremendous reach. NFTOS has led the effort to bring accountability to mainstream media sources such as FOX NEWS,CNN and Andy Breitbart's "Big Journalism. Roger's breadth of experience, engaging style, and cultivation of loyal readership - over 92 million visitors - give him unique insight into the past, present, and future of the New Media and political rhetoric that exists in our society today.
