I am getting tired of people comparing the Tea Party to Occupy Wall Street. Now I am not fully in support of the Tea Party, while I like what they stand for they need to prove to me that they can last beyond a single election…at that point I will whole heartedly say I am a Tea Party member (also assuming it stays solely focused on economics and ignores social issues). And the Tea Party hates the fact that the government gave bailouts to banks because it was a bad economic move…Occupy Wall Street hates that banks took the money (not so much with the government giving money)…but this is really the only place where the two movements kinda sorta touch…as an example of a Venn Diagram these two movements are a poor case. The Tea Party is asking for government to get out of the economy, the Occupy idiots are asking for the government to take charge.
But what really pissed me off is today I heard someone complain about the use of force to disperse the morons at Zuccati Park. The complaint went “They didn’t use police against the Tea Party.”
Could that be because while there was not a single murder at Tea Party rallies there has been one murder suspected to be in relation to Occupy Oakland and several rapes and sexual assaults at OWS
Or maybe because for the most part the craziest thing you see at a Tea Party rally is a guy in a tri-corner hat…whereas at Occupy there is (at last count) 271 major crimes
Maybe it’s because Tea Party members aren’t a massive collection of disease, lice, and drug resistant TB…Typhoid Occupy.
Maybe it’s because we can teach chimps more sophisticated hand signals.
Maybe it’s the Anti-Semitism
Maybe it’s the media bias that ignores all of this…
Maybe it was that endorsement by the American Nazi Party and the American Communist Party.
Maybe it was the fact that, unlike the Tea Party, they have no ability to articulate even the most basic of core beliers.
But, you say. The Tea Party has problems too. They’re racists. Really? Because I looked to find evidence of that.
I found a conference of College Professors that said they could prove the Tea Party was racist because Tea Partiers support more border control and actually enforcing laws when it comes to illegal aliens. Well you have me there because there could not possibly be any legitimate economic reasons to support border control, no, none whatsoever …clearly the only possible reason is that they’re racists. No other logical option is open.
I couldn’t find much else. Hell I looked for just pictures of signs of idiots with racist comments at a Tea Party rally. I couldn’t find them. Now I’ll admit there has to be a portion of idiots at Tea Party rallies who have racist ideas, it’s all but impossible to get a group that big and not have a few assholes in the mix, but they don’t seem to be making a lot of noise in the movement. There is such a lack of evidence of racism in the Tea Party that it’s kind of funny to see what liberals trump up as evidence.
For instance this website (http://www.newstaco.com/2011/09/08/tea-party-associated-with-racist-immigration-group-fair/) Linked to someone’s blog at blogspot as proof that the Tea Party is racist. Because as you all know if one idiot who posts a blog is racist then every single organization that moron belongs to is nothing but hell-bent on establishing a pure Aryan race—without exception. If you have even one racist in your midst clearly your whole organization is corrupt to the core (unless of course you’re the perfectly saintly people of OWS, the evil in their midst, and the rap sheets must be ignored for these nearly divine soldiers for social justice…how dare you question them!)
Oh and I found this genius his proof that the Tea Party is a bunch of Anti-Semites?…well there was…
A picture from a Ron Paul campaign flyer…now Ron Paul is not a Tea Party candidate, he’s a libertarian, and we’ve always known him to be an Anti-Semite and lunatic.
A picture comparing ObamaCare to the Dachau…now it might have issues with tact…but this isn’t denying the Holocaust nor is it claiming it wasn’t terrible…such a sign merely is literarily or poorly hyperbolically stating that ObamaCare will end up killing people. How is that Anti-Semitic?
An Op-Ed (and we know all Op-eds from good liberal papers are to be treated ahead of the gospels in terms of their absolute truth) that says the Tea Partiers shouted the N-Word (Andrew Breitbart has offered a lot of money for tape of that…but it has strangely not shown up yet, it’s only a couple of years I’m sure it will turn up ) and recounting (read hearsay) that Rep. Anthony Weiner (remember him?) had Tea Party members shouting Anti-Semitic statements at him. Weiner was an ass and liar even back then so I would have doubted his word; that amazingly lacks any tangible proof from an event that supposedly occurred the week when ObamaCare was voted on…you know when you couldn’t throw a stone around the capital and not hit two camera crews.
A news article that White Supremacists were planning to recruit people at Tea Party rallies…yet strangely no follow up on how well that member ship drive went…although given the American Nazi Party’s endorsement of OWS, I’m going to guess they didn’t do all that well.
Really, that’s all they have I looked for over an hour to find better stuff. Nothing. No racist’s pictures, no rants on video about how we should all blame the Jews. Nothing legitimate. Hell I expected to find something, pure statistics said some lunatic should have wandered into a Tea Party rally and some liberal journalist would have recorded his rant. But no. Yet somehow FOX, Reason.tv, the Wall Street Journal, Washington Times, and a few bloggers have been able gather the plethora of evidence against OWS I have shown above (really it’s just the tip of the iceberg). Now the liberals were slobbering to find evidence of the evil at a Tea Party rally and couldn’t (and don’t for a second tell me that CNN, MSNBC, the main 3 networks, Huffingtonpost, NY Times, Washington Post and a dozen others weren’t better staffed than the conservative side of the journalism game…and yet they found nothing).
It’s insulting and intellectually dishonest to compare a real political movement to a collection of thugs, whiners, criminals, and scum. But that’s the kind of intellectual dishonest the left traffics in…
…and I dare anyone to find for me a video of someone at a Tea Party rally going off on an ant-Semitic rant, of anyone rapes at a Tea Party rally, or even of Tea Partiers leaving such massive piles of filth. I remember a story about someone showing up with a racist sign but they got yelled at and told to leave (something that you don’t see at OWS)…but that’s about as close as you come.
