Waters, Obama, Demos In Hell Of Way To Treat Tea Party
Written by 

tea partyThe economy is in shambles and consumer confidence is at a three decade low, so whom do Democrats blame for the poor conditions? Well, the Tea Party of course, the group that just entered the political scene in 2009 and elected some members to Congress in November of 2010. In fact, only a few dozen Tea Party members were elected to Congress, but they joined many more liberal Democrats and country club Republicans.

The Tea Party is not to blame because the group has never had any control of the ever expanding federal government. Today, our national debt has surpassed $14.6 trillion; adding $3 million to the total every minute of every day.

Instead of causing the problem, members of the Tea Party are like firemen racing to the scene of a five alarm blaze. They did not set the fire, but are trying to extinguish the dangerous flames and save lives.  Similarly, the Tea Party is trying to save our country by ending our fiscally irresponsible policies.

Instead of welcoming their help, Democrats and liberal members of the media are criticizing the Tea Party for having the audacity to try to solve the problem.

In reality, there is no monolithic Tea Party to blame because it is a collection of thousands of grass roots organizations all across the country. The Tea Party has no official leader; all activists are leaders and empowered to act.

The Tea Party has no definitive platform, but is guided by some basic principles, such as love of country and adherence to constitutional values, fiscal discipline, limited government, and sound monetary policy.

Sadly, the group has been demonized as “terrorists” by Vice President Joe Biden. Other irresponsible journalists, such as MSNBC hosts, have labeled patriotic, God fearing members “violent racists.” It is an odd charge since African Americans like GOP presidential Herman Cain and U.S. Congressman Allen West (R-FL) are Tea Party favorites.

In the past few days, Tea Party members have been subjected to more insults from liberal Democrats in Congress. U.S. Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) said that “the tea party can go straight to hell” and fellow African American Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (D-FL) said that the “real enemy is the tea party.”

It is ironic that Communist killers like Dictator Fidel Castro are praised by many Democrats, while Tea Party activists are insulted in almost every imaginable manner.

It is a sad day in American politics when civil discourse disappears. After these vicious comments, it would be appropriate for our President to step forward and defend the right of Tea Party members to participate in the political process. Instead, Barack Obama is silent. Of course, he was quite vocal back in January in the aftermath of the Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords shooting. Back then, he was pointing fingers at conservatives and urging civility. At that time, he urged the country to come together, but only after fellow Democrats implied that talk radio hosts and congressional conservatives were somehow responsible for the senseless shooting.

Sadly, President Obama only wants civil discourse from those who oppose his radical administration. For his fellow Democrats on Capitol Hill and liberal friends in the media, the President does not insist on respectful dialogue. In fact, he could not care less what insult is hurled at the Tea Party since he only has one overriding concern, his re-election next November.
