Wonder if FOX news is reporting on this?
My partners parents had FOX news on all day yesterday. I listened to it but heard nothing about any of this. All they were reporting on was the growing protests against health care and why would Dems vote yes when there is a crowd outside screaming no. But, nothing about this.
|Quoting texan (Reply 4):|
we should notice that the Tea Party and the Republican Party are two different animals. Republicans are courting members of the Tea Party and want to be seen as members in order to build populist support, but the Tea Party appears to reject many members of the Republican Party.
I would point out that the Tea Party, just like the Christian right, is willingly accepting endorsement from those within the republicans that are connected and willing to break their own moral and ethical code. Look at the two Seantors from Maine. They have been nearly dismissed from the republican party because they vote their concience, not with the party, it seems.
My first thought on reading this is: we were all told that the Tea Party is a civil and quiet protest. Even with all of the pics, speeches and Youtube clips that have show otherwise, we still are told this is a peaceful and civil movement. Anyone still believe that? Yes, there are. There are those that will be coming out saying "this was an isolated incident" and "this was just a few 'fringe' people that we do not support." But, think about it: Cindy Sheehan was deamonized as a "liberal" and hated by all the right-wing for speaking out against the war and against Bush. To the right-wing, Cindy Sheenan and Dems became inseparable. This is the exact same thing.
