The Reality Behind the Tea Party?

October 19, 2011

I hate to say it, but has anyone really checked into who is behind Ms. Brookstone and the Tea Party Nation? Maybe it’s just me, but I gotta tell ya, it is sounding more and more like a partner to Al Qaeda by the day!

We knew this would happen sooner or later. It appears that the Tea Party has jumped the shark and dropped all pretense of being anything but a corporate and Wall Street occupied movement intent on destroying our basic Democratic foundation, and exploiting Americans for wealth and profit. The leader of Tea Party Nation, Melissa Brookstone, has called on all small businesses to “not hire a single person” in order to bring down the Obama Administration. In other words, she is advocating that all job creation cease, that millions of Americans remain or become unemployed, and that the families and children of America should suffer in poverty and joblessness in order to promote her, and the Tea Party’s worldview, one that sees all who oppose them as un-American, Socialist enemies of the state.

Now, while I appreciate the right to free speech when it comes to political views, I do find it troubling when that speech not only advocates doing harm to Americans, but also when it comes from a group of people who by the day, seem to be losing their hold on reality as shown by some of the rationale they have used to make this call to action, such as…

  1. “The Obama administration and the Democrat-controlled Senate, in alliance with a global Progressive socialist movement, have participated in what appears to be a globalist socialist agenda of redistribution of wealth, and the waging of class warfare against our constitutional republic’s heritage of individual rights, free market capitalism, and indeed our Constitution itself, with the ultimate goal of collapsing the U.S. economy and globalizing us into socialism.”
  2. “President Obama has seized what amount to dictatorial powers to bypass our Congress, and that because the Congress is controlled by a Progressive socialist Senate that will not impeach one of their kind, they have allowed this and yielded what are rightfully congressional powers to this new dictator.”
  3. “The current administration and Democrat majority in the Senate, in conjunction with Progressive socialists from all around the country, especially those from Hollywood and the left leaning news media ( Indeed, most of the news media. ) have worked in unison to advance an anti-business, an anti-free market, and an anti-capitalist ( anti-individual rights and property ownership ) agenda”

Now of course, these angry and passionate charges neglect some very painfal truths that are somewhat incovenient when it comes to taking Ms. Brookstone seriously, to whit:

  1. Ms. Brookstone openly admits there is some uncertainty that the Obama Administration and their cohorts are intent on collapsing the American economy when she writes ‘it appears’ that is their intent. Well Melissa, there is no ambiguity about the Tea Party’s intent. Their hand picked representatives in Congress clearly, obviously and very proudly made every effort to collapse the American economy in the Debt Ceiling crisis. So why no call to action by your organization against those representatives who obviously hate America, and all Americans?
  2. Ms. Brookstone asserts that having claimed dictatorial power, congress has taken no action to unseat Obama from that lofty perch because they will not take action against their own. Problem is, Republicans have a majority in the House and a Senate minority that can stonewall anything. Is she saying Boehner and Cantor won’t take on Obama’s power grab because he is one of them???
  3. She also claims a conspiracy between our evil government, Hollywood and the mainstream media who are all in cahoots to take down our Democracy! Well, I do agree that Fox News does want to do that, but not to pursue a new world order. Rather, it is to help corporations solidify their stranglehold on our country and on Americans so they can increase their already obscene profits, an effort the Tea Party unwittingly supports as the foot soldiers doing the dirty work of the GOP and the wealthiest among us.

Best of all, the dubious and blatantly false claims made to support her call to eviscerate the American middle class appear next to advertisements that bring into question the sanity of the Tea Party Nation’s core constituents, like the Privacy Wear ad that guarantees big brother will not be able to gaze longingly on your private body parts should you have to submit to a full body scan at the airport, and the most comprehensive guide to the end of times ever offered, titled “A Charted Journey Through Revelation!”

You know, come to think of it, looking at the accusations made, the call to action, and the advertisments, one need only change a few words here and there, and you would swear you were looking at an Al Qaeda website. I mean really, the charges made against the POTUS and the government sound like a JIHAD against the great American Infidels (in this case, socialists, liberals, Hollywood, yadda yadda yadda). The call to action, to stop job creation and plunge millions of Americans into misery and despair, would seem to be a goal that would align nicely with what the Taliban would love to accomplish. As for the advertisements? Well, what Al Quaeda terrorist wouldn’t love to have Privacy Wear to help them smuggle something on a plane; and change a few words in the ‘end of times’ guide and you could have a “A Charted Journey to Finding 72 Virgins,” which is more or less as rational and real as what’s being hawked on the Tea Party Nation website.

I hate to say it, but has anyone really checked into who is behind Ms. Brookstone and the Tea Party Nation? Maybe it’s just me, but I gotta tell ya, it is sounding more and more like a partner to Al Qaeda by the day!

    Now that she’s no longer a “job creator,” let’s tax the hell out of her so we can start paying down the cost of these wars and whatnot.

    There are only a few things I absolutely hate. One happens to be the Tea Party, mainly because because I hate their over the top pursue at all cost agenda of supporting business interests at the expense of all else that is good in America. They employ Fox and certain radio and television personalities to spout half trues and lies and justify calling President Obama and others such things as socialists, Nazis, racists and even Satan. But because I hate those things does not mean I want to turn the table and employ the same tactics right back at them. I have no doubt that there is a core of the tea party that is bigoted and intent on keeping those people in their place. Money is the prism which they see all things, where I believe we should start with life as our first consideration and make all decisions starting there. I would rather take part in a civil conversation about why I think they are wrong than resort to slandering them with half truths designed to anger those of us that don’t believe in what they do.

    I do not believe they intend for their message to sound like anything Al Qaeda stood for. I don’t believe their leaders are like jihadists. I do believe they have controlled the message and that they are backed by people they claim to be against. But I also believe that if we want to take back that message we need to produce a civil conversation that starts with the middle and not the right or left.

      John, I hate being as extreme as I find myself being, but I have also had my family attacked by the Tea Party because we tried to tell people about losing our 26 year old daughter in law and unborn grandchild due to the poor healthcare system in America, one the Tea Party has defended.

        My sympathies to you and your family. My position is with the People. We have no healthcare system. We are floundering on our own and have no where to turn. I am sick. I’ve been very sick for a long time and I have no where to turn for help. If I go to the emergency room, they release me immediately with some prescriptions that I cannot fill. If I go to the clinic, they have no testing facilities nor can they write prescriptions and if they did, again I have no way to pay for them. All I end up with is a lawsuit & resulting judgment against me … for a few thousand dollars from the emergency room.

    This is entirely off the wall but that said if President Obama were to enter into a second term unhampered by re-election centrist positions and more than a little tired of obstructionist congressional opposition he is probably more qualified to test the bounds of what a president can really do, being a genius and constitutional go to guy and such

    You can believe it won’t be fox news checking this story out. Just the other day they were holding Catherina W. up as a political expert by taking her to the Chicago Occupy protesters. She is a vile, dangerous woman and the leader of the Tea Party Patriots. Google her, you will find details.

      She’s a flipping TAX LAWYER!!! Of course she’s admired by the right wing… She’s their cup of tea… She’s (A tax lawyer) a SAVIOR to them… She (the mere thoughts of her) makes me sick at my stomach… literally… in my gut… I feel sick at the thought of her and her kind… What is happening in America? It’s beyond frightening. Racism at the very core of this…Rich against poor. Republican’s against Americans.
