Occupy Tea Party?

Sean Hannity is not happy with Dingy Harry:

Outrageous! Harry Reid blames Tea Party

In a debate over sequestration cuts on the Senate floor yesterday, Democrat Harry Reid felt the need to blame the tea party. He actually compared the tea party to anarchists, saying that they were different in that they are not violent but they don’t believe in government at any level. Harry Reid notes that the tea party doesn’t say it is against government, but then he goes on to say that this is basically what it amounts to.

But that’s not all! Harry Reid then went on to say the following: “They’re not doing physically destructive things to buildings and people, directly, but they are doing everything they can to throw a monkey-wrench into every form of government … that’s what it’s all about.” Reid continues, “Government is not inherently bad; Government is inherently good. That’s why we have a Constitution and that’s what we direct the activities of this government based upon.”

Government is inherently good? Tea partiers are like anarchists, they don’t believe in government? While tea partiers don’t do physical destruction “directly,” they are trying to destroy our government and its proper process? This is the level of rhetoric we are getting from Democrats nowadays.

Let’s see, since the inception of the Tea Party we have seen an enormous growth in government spending, including the Stimulus and Obamacare. So exactly what are they doing to destroy government?


I have news for Dingy Harry – our Founding Fathers considered government a necessary evil. Evil is the opposite of good. That’s why they wrote the Constitution – a guarantee of limited government. Which is what the Tea Partiers want.

What I find really amusing is the idea that Tea Partiers are like anarchists. Anarchists founded the Occupy Wall Street movement. So far no Tea Partiers have been arrested for trying to blow shit up, the cops haven’t had to bust up any Tea Party rallies and they don’t have rape tents at Tea Parties.

Meanwhile, Joe the Talking Ass has done it again:

Biden calls Boston bombing suspects ‘knock-off jihadis’

Obama administration officials waded into the Boston Marathon bombing attacks, forcing others in the administration to beat a hasty retreat Wednesday.

Speaking at a memorial service for slain MIT officer Sean Collier, Vice President Joe Biden issued some harsh words for the suspects of the terrorist attack, calling them “two twisted, perverted, cowardly, knock-off jihadis.”

The Obama administration quickly moved away from that assessment, with White House Press Secretary Jay Carney refusing to speculate on jihadi motivations for the attack.

“There’s an investigation under way. We know some things. There’s a lot more to learn, and that’s why the investigation is taking place,” Carney said in response to a reporter’s questions on Biden’s comments.

While it is generally bad form for top government officials to make such comments about on-going criminal cases, what I want to know is what is so fake about real bombs, real bullets and real dead bodies?

    What’s even more ridiculous is that people really think Biden could be a good candidate in 2016.

    The bigotry toward the Tea Party boggles my mind. What are the vile progs and Harry Reid afraid of? At this point, I’m happy Crazy Harry didn’t accuse the Tea Party of causing Speedbump and Scumbag to bomb the Boston Marathon.

  3. DandyTiger says:

    It would be really bizarre and funny if this shit weren’t coming from the leader of the Senate, the leader of the Dem party in congress.

    What a strange bunch of anarchists! They seem to believe in the US Constitution and the rule of law and they don’t get arrested at their protests. I bet they even get permits to gather.

    I hate to tell Harry Reid, but I’m pretty sure the people have a right to “destroy” their government, at least through elections, protests, public gatherings, writing to their congresscritters. In fact, we actually own our government in this country and some of have the receipt to prove it. They work for us and they serve at the pleasure of the people.

  5. It’s apparently a concerted effort. I just happened to stop on the radio channel playing Rush Limbaugh today. He was talking about the Boston Bombing, so I left it to see what he was saying (basically a bunch of intellectually-lazy shit just like the Jaharists, though the content was the opposite). Anyway, they cut to a commercial and an ad from the Chamber of Commerce came on defending CORE standards in school that actually linked “right wing extremist Republicans” with the Tea Party, who they also called “right wing extremists,” attacking them for opposing CORE standards. I was quite shocked to see such a political alliance flip by the CoC over educational standards that should be questioned.

    Something weird is going down in the political world, and I can’t quite put my finger on it, but there are many trends emerging that point to it.

      I think the ruling class doesn’t want to let go of power. My attitude is to vote out all incumbents.

    • myiq2xu says:

      Why are you surprised? The Chamber is GOP establishment. The Tea Party is anti-establishment.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Tea Party also gave Sarah a voice and brought us Rand Paul, Rubio, Cruz and a few other “anti-establishments” who go against the grain of the Old Guard. The Tea Party must be deeeeeeestroyed !

      • Did you miss the part I said they were bashing GOP officials too? They were conflating the GOP power base with the Tea Party. That was the surprising part.

    • driguana says:

      What’s most disturbing to me is how many people actually believe Reid’s perspective…because they only get their information from prog sources. A prog friend the other day was going off about the violence of the tea party and I asked them to give me an example. They had a hard time but then said when all those tea partiers spit on the black congressmen and when they all showed up with guns at a rally down in southern NM. Well, the spitting incident was debunked many times over and the rally down in Catron County was a 2nd Amendment rally where people brought guns intentionally.

      When I asked where they got their info they said, with puffed up chest, NPR and MSNBC, of course…..wow. I then asked if they had ever been to a tea party meeting or rally and they said, once again with puffed up chest, they would never demean themselves.

      what bomber billy ayres could not do with a bomb, he is doing with obama. Today’s democratic party is not the same party who respected and loved America and her people

    • cynic says:

      I’m right with you on this one. There definitely is something going on. The Republican Party is worried. In my little neck of the woods, they want the Tea Party gone. We just had Paul Ryan and Luis Gutierrez singing Kumbaya in IL this week, and then I see Mitt Romney and David Axelrod doing something together? Huh?

    Well I’m late to the party and now you’ve started another thread, but I have to somewhat defend Dirty Harry’s comments.

    As you all know my husband is an air traffic controller and as such is a government employee. There are plenty of people online and in person that claim to be Tea Party that disdain my husband.

    These people do not want any government, let it burn they say. There are actually quite a few of them that don’t even want the military they only want state militias. I’ve challenged them with the constitution which they supposedly hold so dear. In fact the constitution put in place a form of government. I mention the judicial branch, the founders put that in place……they don’t care, activist judges, let it burn. They don’t want ANY government.

    I’ll tell you something else and you all can laugh at me if you want. By and large most government employees are a fairly patriotic lot or at least the ones I know. Like all of the rest of you they have been disgusted by the bloat and waste, something many of them see up close and personal. (Oh the things I could tell you all about waste and just might in about six weeks or so)

    So in the beginning it seemed natural to many to be a part of a non-partisan group that simply wanted to return sanity to government……..focus on fiscal issues only. I do believe the original tea party people were sincere and they’re not loons, but so many of them can’t articulate what in the hell they want to cut. God forbid they find out you actually work for the government because anybody that does is slime, scum, on and on. My husband has been called names and by extension so have I.

    I am by no means painting with broad strokes and claiming all of the Tea Party members are like that, but there are a significant number that simply want no government and to deny that is not being honest.

    • Somebody says:

      Just in case someone accuses me of being a vile prog. I’ve been around here for a while and think you all know better than that. Some of the commenters here have known me for going on 5 years now. I am not a vile prog, nor do I get my news from MSNBC

      • votermom says:

        There’s lots of crazy online.
        I’ll tel you what though – I noticed in 2011/2012 when everyone was expecting Sarah Pain to run, there were a lot of people who would show up on pro-Palin sites, claim to be a fan/supporter, and then post the most racist, dumbest kind of stuff. On moderated sites like c4p they would get called out as trolls and get shut down.

        • Somebody says:

          Yes there is a lot of crazy online and I’ve seen some of it. That being said I’ve also seen it in person and at some sites where regular commenters basically called my husband the scum of the earth because he works for the government.

          In fact until only a couple of weeks ago you all didn’t know what my husband did. I only came out because some of the information being put out was misleading or wrong. There is a reason I don’t mention it, because of past experiences.

        • votermom says:

          Anyone who thinks we don’t need air controllers is too stupid to live, imo.
          Sorry you have to deal with them. 😦

      • HELENK says:

        since your husband has one of the most stressful jobs in the world, give him a hug. That man earns his money and is not just some bored clerk too busy clock watching to help the people they are paid to help. there is a big difference.
        But please understand there are a lot of unnecessary government jobs. His is not one of them. Hell we have congress critters that do not read the bills they pass. How necessary are they? monkeys with buzzers could do the same job

        • Somebody says:

          Helenk I agree with you there are a lot of unnecessary government jobs……..or should I say we…..my husband and I both agree with you. There are unnecessary jobs within the FAA too. Their manager to employee ratio is ridiculous and there are some questionable staff jobs and that’s being kind.

          Thank you for your kind words, I will pass them along to him as well as a hug. I’m obviously jaded, but I feel he has earned his money and I know he came by all his gray hairs honestly!!

          VM there are some out there that advocate not having air traffic controllers. Then there are those that think you can basically find any slug on a street corner, pay them minimum wage and let them loose controlling airplanes. The FAA is in the news a lot right now, some of the comments on those articles are shocking…….there are some stupid ass people out there.

        • HELENK says:

          For a while I was a train dispatcher. that job has less stress than an air traffic controller due to the difference in traffic. Every day I prayed that I did not make a mistake and get someone killed. We were only allowed by the FRA to work 9 hours a day due to stress. So yes give your husband a great big hug
