Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

The more I read and watch the antics of Tea Party right wing activists the more I begin to feel

that these people if given the opportunity would have no trouble or moral dilemma going door to door arresting those they consider Liberals. These are very ill people.....

5. They are rabid reactionaries.

The "conservative entertainment complex" is responsible for fanning the flames.

6. I think they'll do something more acceptable than that. Especially with the gerrymandering,

they'll acquire more and more power to prevent those they disagree with from keeping or acquiring appropriate employment. If you have a job, you can lose it if your politically incorrect leanings are sussed out. All of the good permanent jobs with career paths will go to those in political power and no one will be able to do anything about it legally because "at will" employment is the law of the land.

11. That's Already Happening

Some business owners have proudly said that they laid off people who voted for Obama. It's perfectly legal in the right to work states at the least. I'm not sure about other states. As a I learned in B-Law in college right to work, a misnomer if there ever was one, means you can be terminated for: good reason, bad reason, no reason as long as it's not in violation of a protected class like race or gender.

It used to be called the "good 'ole boys club" who played golf together and the junior execs intentionally lost to the senior execs in their bid to get ahead. Now the club is going to morph into the "good 'ole _____ club" fill in the blank - Republican, Tea Party. I doubt they'll all be playing golf. Some of them will probably being doing militia training and exercises on the weekends together. Or organizing trips to gun shows.

8. The signs say alot. Carried by whites, even has klan cone head.

The teabaggers are really bad when Dick Armey got out. The signs with reference to FOX, Beck and Rush says the rest. Politicians who associate with this bunch are losers. I am white and raised in the south, I have seem these folks before and they should be ashamed of their actions. By now you would have thought this kind of hate would go away. If the GOP continues to stand for the antics of this part of their party I can see the great divide coming. They do not have enough people to control the rest of the US but they are mean and hateful. We have to stop them at the polls and elect decent people who does not think this way.

12. Haven't they done so, in the past?

 

I think several notable leftist types did get locked up, for unknown reasons, during the Bush years. Anyway, I'm afraid the TP nuts might start killing liberals eventually.

13. Beck, Limbaugh and the herd along with Fox News promote this behavior ... their goal is

to divide the nation. I have no doubt that there are some unhinged TP nuts that will kill liberals and/or those whom they perceive in their defective little minds to be liberals. These people are absolute scum.

14. They have alot of cross membership with white supremacist groups. I was researching some

stuff throught the southern poverty law center and anti-defamation league. Some of the klan types have been saying for a few years they were going more mainstream, disguising their viewpoints etc. (David Duke is one) and alot of them turned up within the tea party. The tea party national, I don't know what the national part of it is, but that specific arm of the tea party based in florida is on their hate group watch list. Alot of tea party gov's and senators have spoken at Conservative Christian Coalition events. CCC is a white supremacist group and tea party supporter. It's scary. People have no idea how much damage they're doing. We have to get active for this next cycle.

16. No bipartisan inclinations in that bunch, that's for sure.

Yet the DEMs always want to find "common ground" with the TP goons.

17. They would not be arresting Liberals if they came door to door

 

I do not think they are ill they are just evil, no different than, well I won't say the name we all know who they are and they have the same views and the same group of moneyed and corporate interests that supported that unnamed political group too.

18. "When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross."

Above quote attributed to Sinclair Lewis.

It Can’t Happen Here (1935)Sinclair Lewis: “But he saw too that in America the struggle was befogged by the fact that the worst Fascists were they who disowned the word ‘Fascism’ and preached enslavement to Capitalism under the style of Constitutional and Traditional Native American Liberty.”

19. It's not like history doesn't have plenty of precedents on what extreme conservative religious

fanatics will do when in power. Even in this country with the Puritans, David Koresh, Jim Jones, the Taliban, The Inquisition and on and on.

Why else are they destroying women's rights? The Teabaggers are crazed power hungry extreme conservatives.
