Ok, enough is enough. Ever since the debt ceiling debacle, uh, I mean deal, the assaults on the tea party have continued to ramp up, and it’s gotten completely out of hand. Senator John Kerry dubbed the first downgrade in U.S. history the “tea party downgrade”. He also said the tea party is holding the economy hostage, and that they should not have equal time in the media.
Maxine Waters: The Tea Party Can Go Straight to Hell
August 23, 2011 by righthook38
Hmmm…can you say “fairness doctrine”?
Other Democratic leaders, such as Chuck Schumer, Steny Hoyer, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Chris Van Hollen and James Clyburn also accused congressional tea party members of holding the economy hostage. Representative Mike Doyle and several other congressmen called the tea party “terrorists” in a closed door session, and there were claims that VP Joe Biden said the same thing. Those claims were denied, but at a minimum, he agreed with Senator Doyle, even if he didn’t use the word “terrorists”. Funny…the Obama administration refuses to call actual terrorists “terrorists”, but when a few members of Congress try to do what they were elected to do, and be fiscally responsible, Dems have no problem labeling them as terrorists.
Now, Congresswoman Maxine Waters is taking it to the next level:
Now…what exactly did she mean by “I will help them get there”? Was that a threat of some sort? Strangely enough, most of the videos do not show this part of her comment. Why is that?
I’ve had enough of this! After the horrific shootings in AZ last year, President Obama called for civility and toning down divisive rhetoric. Yet, his own party is clearly not listening. What if a Republican said the feminist movement could go straight to hell? Or the gay and lesbian community? Or union protesters? It would be plastered on every media outlet in the nation! This is completely unacceptable behavior for a member of Congress. How can we allow this? Why doesn’t Obama speak out on this? It’s despicable.
Of course, this is not so surprising from Waters. She’s a socialist, through and through, so of course, the principles of the tea party are treasonous in her mind. Here’s another example of the crazy that is Maxine Waters:
Oops…did she just say “socializing”? Surely not….
As the 2012 elections near, these ridiculous attacks from the left will continue to ramp up. They will attack the presidential candidates, the tea party, and of course, the rich. Obama has helped intensify class warfare, to the point that political pundits and even members of Congress are predicting some level of civil unrest. We must continue to stand firm, and counter the message of the left with our message of conservatism and freedom. If we don’t fight for it, we’ll be sure to lose it.
