South Florida Tea Party changing name

Part of the south FL tea party has broken off and changed it's name to the National Liberty Federation. They think they have a "communications failure." They refuse to understand that the problem is not their message, it's their beliefs. Their name change is just a paint job.

Here's the link to The Palm Beach Post.

9. "Liberty" in their name? Yeah, but not for *you*.

They want the 'liberty' to impose their fucked-up religion, even more fucked-up morals, insane economic policies, xenophobia, bigotry and racist views on everyone else without any impediments.

4. Maybe we're starting to see the demise of the tea party.

They're losing their cohesion and this step in Florida along with the disorganization at Freedomworks makes me think the losses of the last election have taken a toll. Hallelujah!

7. Yep. They'll go the way of the Know Nothing Party

which existed for a while in the 1850s. The Know Nothings were a nativist party and were against the Irish, the Germans, Catholics and immigration in general.

14. And don't forget the John Birch Society

which is just as dangerous and insane as the Klan. One of the Koch brothers is a backer of the John Birch Society.
