The Tea Party doctrine of hate makes the movement less popular then Gays and Muslims!

September 6, 2011

…as the recent polling has shown, it is far, far too late for the Tea Party Movement to save itself or the hateful doctrine it embraces. It was always a movement founded on lies, disinformation and fear, and such a movement cannot, and will not survive in the greatest country on earth.

Here at old DTOM, we have long held the view that the Tea Party is a faux grass-roots movement that was really a creation by the core of the Republican Party, otherwise known as rich and very powerful corporate interests intent on stripping our democracy, and our democratic institutions of any power to effectively govern. The reason being, of course, that in that environment, the Republicans would be able to regain their hold on power that was squandered by the disastrous Bush Presidency, and the wealthiest Americans that make up the core of the GOP could continue to get richer at the expense of everyone else.

We also held the belief that the Tea Party movement was inherently dishonest, and certainly dangerous. One need only look at their signs and their rhetoric at their so called rallies. Or the town hall meetings where they set the standard for thuggish behavior and mob mentality intended to intimidate and threaten. Or how they attack those they disagree with, like the man with Parkinsons at a healthcare reform rally or the woman that three men from the Tea Party beat up at a Rand Paul political rally.

Given the movement’s evil and hateful foundation, we also thought the movement would implode on itself at some point and for any number of reasons. Perhaps the abject greed that is its foundation would cause it to feed on the very people who supported it. Or maybe the core of hatred that sustains it would result in internacine warfare. Or with so many Republican ‘Tea Party’ candidates having taken advantage of the limited attention span of the American voter and getting elected, America would finally see the despicable character of the individuals who expediently rode the anger and vitriol of the movement for their own personal, and the GOP’s gain, like dead-beat dad Joe Walsh of Illinois, and realize they had been duped into supporting people that represented a movement that could care less about effective governance, or the well being of the United States of America as a whole.

Well, it took a little longer than we expected, but all the things we expected would contribute to the Tea Party’s demise, and more, have come to fruition to one degree or another, and the result is the movement is now in its death throes as the 2012 election approaches, which does not bode well for the Grand Old Party. And as far as DTOM is concerned, we couldn’t be happier.

As proof, look at the results of a recent New York Times poll about how people regard the Tea Party. The unfavorable rating for the Tea Party now stands at 40%, a 120% increase over the unfavorable rating the movement received in April 2010! And why should Tea Party’s unfavorable rating be a concern to Republicans? Because, as revealed in research by David E. Campbell, an associate professor of political science at Notre Dame, and Robert D. Putnam, a professor of public policy at Harvard, which was first done before the Tea Party ever existed and then updated this past month, the single biggest predictor of who did and did not join the Tea Party was whether or not they were a Republican.

What is even more telling is in this same research, completed as part of a book titled “American Grace: How Religion Divides and Unites Us,” it turns out that across a cross section of twenty-four high-profile groups and individuals on the American scene, the Tea Party doesn’t just score poorly, IT COMES IN DEAD LAST! Yep, behind Muslims, Atheists and Gays.

Of course, this does not mean that the Tea Party is gone, or that it won’t still pose a threat to fair minded and patriotic Americans. In the months ahead, we can expect to see the movement become more angry, more volatile, and even more dangerous as it desperately seeks to remain relevant. However, as the recent polling has shown, it is far, far too late for the Tea Party Movement to save itself or the hateful doctrine it embraces. It was always a movement founded on lies, disinformation and fear, and such a movement cannot, and will not survive in the greatest country on earth.

    Hate on the Tea Party all day long and see how the hate flows off of it like water off a ducks back. The Tea Party does not care if you hate it. The Tea Party understands that people hate what they fear and that people fear change. Change is nothing to fear.

    We know that you know the violence claims are false. Why do you stand by them when you know they are lies?

    If you’re still afraid of the Tea Party then just think of us as the Green Party done correctly. Now you’ve got nothing to fear. :)

    What issue? Eliminating Central Banking…the real problem..Let’s control our own issuance of $$$ and stop paying debt on money our government issues.

    Why are businesses going overseas. It’s cheaper and most important. Lack of a Tariff-Revenue-System of 25 – 30% which means they can pay third world expenses and receive first-world prices for their goods and services. Regulatory burdens in the US could be reduced and corporate Income taxes should be reduced to 15%. Corporations keep alot of profits overseas to avoid paying taxes. they then bribe Congress to allow them to “Re-Patriate” it at 5%….which is Corporate Tax Amnesty. 15% taxes would probably raise more $$ and keep some business activity here..

    Hi,
    Interesting post but notcompletely true. The Tea Party got started from the Grassroots totally independent of any party. However since most believe in Small Govt. most call The Republicans home, but not without reservations. What did happen is that The Republican Establishment attempted to Take over the Teas Party movement with some success, but no totally..

    Republicans represent many large Corporations and business interests , however so do the Democrats. For Example John Kerry-Heintz and Heinz Ketchup. Also has anyone heard of The Name George Soros ??

    I am a Democrat with a TeaParty Membership and I seem to have more consideration on the issue of cheap labor tan most of them. However all of us should be fighting Corporatism and fascism which affects all of regardless of party. In this issue are all onthe same side, we could go far in solving many of this nation’s problems..if we simply come together on this issue !!

      Come together on what issue? Cheap labor? Are American labor unions responsible for sending jobs overseas?

        Labor Unions, except public unions, had much less to do with it than the US having the highest corporate taxes in the world & totaly open borders.
