Default Tea Party

Tea Partiers, as seen in protests or town hall meetings, look like the socially relevant equivalent of a Wal Mart Greeter.

There's so much backwoods out lash going on. Its amazing. I'll sum up:

Guns niggers taxes pipe bombs jesus.

Tea Partiers love Glen Beck for one reason. Like most republicans he doesn't just give facts since slower people get bored real easy with facts. He tells a story and makes it emotional which sucks in everyone. Basically he talks like a TV preacher and that is what locks it all in.

That an they really hate black people since most of the rallies look like a big white sheet with almost no ethnic diversity whatsoever.

I think though it's not so much Tea Party followers you hate but just stupid people in general and they are just a subdivision of that expanding group.

I'm not Tea Partier, a socialist, liberal nor anything; I'm just a spectator that wants to protect freedoms, privacy and property from the government and corporations. I have seen Glenn Beck's show and compared quite a few things he has said with articles from newspapers, and other reliable sources throughout history they seem to match pretty heavily on what has been reported as happened. I'm not defending Glenn but he makes strong points.

edit: Nevermind.

Ah, Glenn Beck. He would be so funny if it weren't for the fact that millions of people take this fruitcake seriously. I love how he says "I'm going to lose my mind!", that happened a long time ago Glenn...

Glenn Beck is a coke head
Hell, He even looks like one.
I remember watching back in his CNN days he made a total ass of himself for not believing that people still hunt with bows and arrows. Fucking idiot.

There is quite a lot of racism and zenophobia in the Tea Party phenomenon, but don't forget that - irrational as the average tea partier is - there is a reason people are attracted to it.

I think that the neocons deregulate everything and screw the poor and the weak, and then the christfags play the victim card to get people to come to jesus so they can protect thier children from marauding hordes of homosexshueals.

G W Bush cut funding for education, and then the ignorant masses believe his lies. This is EXACTLY how you start a facist state. Keep them ignorant.

Personally, I think that there are a lot of people that are just fed up with both sides. The Tea Party isnt gonna go anywhere as its already been infiltrated by the likes of Palin and McCain, but what gets me is that people are really getting fed up with government BS every time they turn around.

McCain is just an opportunist. First he was The Original Maverick because no one within his own party would challenge him for fear of a defection to the Democrats and being in the middle of politics made him more powerful. But now that he's found J.D. Hayworth is willing to challenge him in the primaries and the Democrats wouldn't even think of taking a Republican who previous ran as their Presidential candidate, suddenly he becomes The Model Republican and goes around telling people "I never considered myself a maverick".

Given the choice in the Arizona senate race this year is effective a two-horse race between washed-up McCain and "I guess you could marry your horse" Hayworth, I pity anyone here living there now.

Edit:



Found this through RationalWiki, and it's pretty amazing. He really does seem like Glenn Beck, somewhat bolstering my hypothesis that that American right-wing is still fighting the Cold War in their minds, hence why they see 'socialists' and 'communists' and 'Marxists' around each street corner.

Heh heh. It's like he's saying "I'm not a maverick, I just play one on TV." Or at election time, whatever.
