Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Found a brainwashed tea party supporter, need more proof to debunk his/her B.S.

As it says on the tin. This person goes by the handle of LeBeoBeatha and their comments can be seen here:

youtube(dot)com/watch?v=90SdmjuCAqw

Here's some of the worst of the bullshit:

"I've been to Tea Party rallies before. They're full of quiet elderly people, country music, and conservative guest speakers. Not to mention all the American flags. I haven't seen ANY of the utter bull that people say goes down at Tea Parties. I have on the other hand seen OWS group screaming in pedestrians faces and breaking shop windows. And the mounds of garbage and filth. At least Tea Partiers clean up after themselves. Oh, and they LEAVE after awhile. PEACEABLY."

"From police reports, witnesses, court rulings and pictures in the local papers and all over the web, it's been decided that 1500+ incidence involving violence and/or defiance of common-laws have occurred at Occupy movements in the U.S. Whereas with the tea party only 30 have occurred over 3 years. The Tea Party not only gets permits(unlike the ows movement) but they also clean up before they LEAVE(...)"

Listen, I can't back down from this now. I need somebody to help me out here as my own Google searches haven't yielded ANYTHING of value for the most part. Where can I get lots of examples of Tea Party crimes, threats, etc.?

3. OWS represents the 99% so by default they're more diverse and less sedate

than the Tea Party.

I don't approve of violence...but just because a few Occupiers break the law doesn't mean the overall message is wrong.

5. I'm not going to lock this thread, but...

Something like this is better suited for Propaganda Debunking.

You might think about posting it there also for additional information.
