Re: “The Tea Party

Virginian:
_The Tea Party movement is a normal push back against a government that is ruling against the will of it's constituents_

Yes, the Tea Party represents a 4% majority, kind of like the 41 seat majority the Republicans have in the Senate.

Excuse me and the rest of the supermajority of the electorate that a)voted for Obama, b)supports healthcare reform, c)supports not only a public option, but single payer--neither of which we got, thanks to your 4%, etc etc

Re: “The Tea Party

Wow mattdrew and jacobzax, are you astroturfing or are you individuals willfully misinterpreting on your own dime?

mattdrew:
1)"Opposition" and "if you don't vote how I think you should, we'll shoot you" are pretty different. Unless, of course, you think this comment is a gun. In which case, you need your eyes checked.

2)It's not an ad hominem if you're not trying to disprove their points. He's starting from the (totally _duh_) presumption that their points are specious and uninformed, and asking, why? Why does this kind of utterly transparent BS get so much air in this political climate?

jacobzax:
1)first, congrats on the transparently fake social positioning.
2)Godwin's law, you lose.
3)Did you actually read the article?
4)Did you actually read the article?
5)Of course, there's absolutely no difference between arresting a group of people for conspiracy to murder and "rounding up" a bunch of people based on their political views.


Both of you: THE POINT of the article is to distinguish between advocating a political position and advocating political violence to enforce that position--a distinction both of you seemingly deliberately obfuscate or even invert, which is troubling to say the least.
