2. Did you look at the video?

It's not actually advocating the burning of books.

4. I'm not sure of the point you're trying to make.

This video is about how a library was saved in spite of the tea party.

5. The point is...

if you take "their" stupid message, and twist it a little, you'll be fighting fire with fire. Just don't ask me to explain the ignorance of a tea-freak. That takes more time.

6. Stupid,

Telling inflammatory lies to enrage and provoke the public into action isn't beating the tea party. - It's joining it.

8. Yes

If you are going to lie and mislead to get what you want you are no different from limbaugh,beck or the kochs. you cannot take the moral high ground when you are using the same tactics. whether it is the burning of books or the establishment of death panels.
