We Need to Thank the Tea Baggers for making the RepubliCONS irrelevant!

The Tea Baggers have been the Political Gift that keeps on giving, from Sarah Palin, Rand Paul and Sharron Angle these Crazies on the Far Right Fringe have given Democrats something to be happy about going into the mid term elections. They have declared War on the Hispanic American community possibly swinging that demographic more towards Democats than ever before they have also successfully changed much of the political discourse away from the economy and unemployment to social issues like Immigration, gay marriage and this Stupid Idea of "Discussing" the repeal of the 14th amendment. Yes dems still have many issues to address but Just as the Far Right has Rallied in their hatred for President Obama Democrats will rally together to Fight The Tea Baggers from California to right here in the Carolinas.

The Tea Baggers Have given me reason to believe that we will hold on to both the House & Senate come November. President Obama's election showed the World that the Politics of Fear, Hate and Division can be overcome by Hope & the Desire for Change! The World the Tea Baggers want to live in resembles that of 50's and 60's. We Proud Democrats want to PUSH this Country Forward not take this Country back to those times when it was Socially acceptable to Hate and Discrimnate. We don't want Proud Racist Roaming the Streets in America looking for someone to intimidate. The Tea Party Reprsents that Spirit of Hate! As long as We Continue to Fight That History will prove us Right! We must never Back Down in the Face of Hate, Fear & Division.

The Democratic Party STANDS for something and we will not FALL to such petty tactics employed by the RepubliCON far Right Fringe Tea Baggers! We Are Better Than That! Instead we will continue to be the BigTent Party and welcome People from ALL walks of Life while at the same time staying True to our Progressive Principles and Values. We Can't forget that while we may all come from different communities Religions and Ethnic backgrounds it is the Spirit of Unity and Progress that binds us. It is that beliefs that ALL MEN WOMEN RACES AND RELIGIONS ARE EQUAL! The Far Right RepubliCON Tea Party don't Believe that!

Misc. Questions

these Crazies on the Far Right Fringe

Somewhere between 18% and 30% of Americans associate themselves with the Tea Party. For those who prefer fractions, that's somewhere between 1/5 to 1/3. Doesn't really sound like a far right "fringe" to me, unless that fringe is pretty wide. See:

http://www.gallup.com/poll/127181/Tea-Partiers-Fairly-Mainstream-Demographics.aspx

http://blogs.abcnews.com/thenumbers/2010/04/support-for-the-tea-party.html

They have declared War on the Hispanic American community

By calling for measures to address illegal immigration? The best way to address that problem is certainly something reasonable people can disagree on. But they've all declared "War" (I'm not sure what the capitalization means here) on the Hispanic American community? That seems a bit of a leap to me and, if incorrect, more than a little misleading. I would like to note the definition of propaganda: "information, esp. of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote or publicize a particular political cause or point of view."

Yes dems still have many issues to address but Just as the Far Right has Rallied in their hatred for President Obama Democrats will rally together to Fight The Tea Baggers from California to right here in the Carolinas.

Democrats don't hate Tea Party supporters? Democrats didn't rally together in their hatred of President Bush? Or was that, for some reason, different? Or is there nothing wrong with rallying in hatred? Or, have you possibly confused the word "hate" with the word "oppose?"

The World the Tea Baggers want to live in resembles that of 50's and 60's.

Tea Party supporters want a return to the Cold War? Or a return to economic stability? I seem to remember reading that the 50's and 60's were fairly successful, economically. But I'm no economic historian, so I could be wrong there. Or are you accusing the Tea Party supporters of wanting to repeal the Civil Rights Act or something of the sort? In which case, I have found no evidence of such a sentiment among Tea Party supporters. Maybe I missed something.

The Democratic Party STANDS for something and we will not FALL to such petty tactics employed by the RepubliCON far Right Fringe Tea Baggers! We Are Better Than That!

By employing misleading, inflammatory statements? Marginalizing 18-30% of Americans? Using a sexually derogatory term to refer to members of a political movement? And that makes you better how?

18 - 30% ?? Really?

I have a hard time believing it. I don't doubt you can produce a poll that states that range, but it's difficult to comprehend that that many people could be so stupid. Oh, wait, it's gettting easier every day.

I remember when ole Dubya was president, was watching lots of cable tv and getting the paper etc . . . and I don't think you can compare the tea party rallies to the rallies by Democrats to protest Bush's policies. Granted, many of us were united by feelings of disgust for Rove's strategies, alarm at Bush's ignorance, and fear of his war-mongering. We found occasional relief by laughing at his moronic utterances, but the rallies tended to be about issues (and half of us were pretty much convinced Cheney was running the show rather than Bush). The tea partiers seem to be rallying around the idea of despising Obama, questioning his nationality, alleging that he is a moslem hell bent on destroying this country's core values. It seems quite personal -- and -- at many of those rallies -- racist.

As for calling them tea-baggers, well, that's almost irresistible (though I have been angel in this post by resisting thus far.) I say to the tea party persons that you can't go around waving signs with stupid remarks, selecting spokespersons whose comments out the racist thread pulling so many of you together, promoting candidates who are batty as all get out (and I really was sad to see that D'Annunzio lost the primary), and then get all butt puckered because you find yourselves being ridiculed.

Tea Baggers = RepubliCON Party Overlords!

They claim to be independent but spit the same old RepubliCON talking Points. Yeah I wouldn't be surprised if they were around 18 to what ever but I also read somewhere that MOST of them are at, around or OVER retirement age! Putting MOST of them in that Generation I spoke of that wants to go back to the Bad ol Days of Socially Accepted Racism!

What's "Gobly Gook?"

Gobly Gook!

Gobbledygook: "language that is meaningless or is made unintelligible by excessive use of abstruse technical terms; nonsense." (Mac dictionary widget). I don't believe that my questions or observations were meaningless, and I don't think I used overly obscure or technical language. But, if I can clarify a question, I would be happy to do so. Did my questions make sense to you, HallStyle?

I remember when ole Dubya was president, was watching lots of cable tv and getting the paper etc . . . and I don't think you can compare the tea party rallies to the rallies by Democrats to protest Bush's policies.

People are not so different. These aren't all rallies during the Bush presidency, but I believe they demonstrate my point:

http://rightwingnews.com/2010/01/the-anti-war-rallies-of-the-bush-years-in-20-pics/

Do these represent all Democrats or liberals? Or even a majority? Of course not. Just as the extremists the media digs out of Tea Party rallies do not represent the majority of Tea Party supporters. I'm not trying to advocate on behalf of the Tea Party's ideas here. All I'm advocating for is respectful and honest discourse.

The tea partiers seem to be rallying around the idea of despising Obama, questioning his nationality, alleging that he is a moslem hell bent on destroying this country's core values. It seems quite personal -- and -- at many of those rallies -- racist.

The Tea Party rallies I have attended and heard of generally revolve around economic policy. There are certainly kooks, as mentioned above, that will question Obama's nationality or his religion, but their ideas don't seem to be the core ideas that the Tea Party rallies around:

I Love the Fact that they (The Tea Baggers) have Chosen this Road! It will only lead to a Rude Awakening Come November when the House and Senate remain in Democratic Party Control.

Sure keep saying that you guys are Racist I will keep saying Prove it! Tell your Tea Party Leaders Beck and Limbo to stop Race Bating! Oh no you don't have the Stones for that! Tea Baggers if you don't want to be seen as Racist Stop Acting like Racist!

Or are you accusing the Tea

Or are you accusing the Tea Party supporters of wanting to repeal the Civil Rights Act or something of the sort? In which case, I have found no evidence of such a sentiment among Tea Party supporters. Maybe I missed something.

uh..hello? Rand Paul and Sarah Palin have both said they would work to repeal pieces of the Civil Rights Act as well as the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Syd

Only a Racist would even Seriously Consider Repealing CRA

Only a Racist would do that. Tea Party talk about Less Government and Less Taxes but what Really Fires them Up is the Tought of Brown people and Balck People taking over the Country! I'll just say it! That's basically what it all boils down to. Tea Baggers are so easy to see through!,

Anthony D. Hall,

Fighting for Truth, Justice, Freedom and the American Way!

What Evidence?

uh..hello? Rand Paul and Sarah Palin have both said they would work to repeal pieces of the Civil Rights Act as well as the Americans with Disabilities Act.

This can degenerate quickly into a "he said, he's lying" contest, which will be pointless. You can believe whatever you care to believe, obviously. Nevertheless, Rand Paul has issued statements clarifying his position regarding the Civil Rights Act:

http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2010/05/rand-paul-i-will-not-support-any-efforts-to-repeal-the-ci...

http://blogs.abcnews.com/thenote/2010/05/rand-paul-clarify-stance-civil-rights-act-1964.html

By my analysis, I believe Rand Paul disfavors some aspects of the CRA, but is apparently not in support of repealing it - especially wholesale. As far as Sarah Palin goes, I couldn't find anything on Google or Yahoo regarding her and the CRA. Not that I don't believe it's out there; I just can't comment on it because I couldn't find any pertinent statements.

And, if he does disagree with certain aspects of the CRA, I do not see how that automatically, inevitably, makes him a racist. There are other ideals and philosophies that would account for such a view that have nothing to do with race.

I just lump them all into the same Category Far Right and in a lot of Cases Racist!

Sure keep saying that you guys are Racist I will keep saying Prove it! Tell your Tea Party Leaders Beck and Limbo to stop Race Bating! Oh no you don't have the Stones for that! Tea Baggers if you don't want to be seen as Racist Stop Acting like Racist!

Unfortunately, race is still an important issue in our national discourse. And equally as unfortunately, there is often a terribly thin line between discussing racial issues and race baiting, especially where different political or racial groups misunderstand each others' motivations. An observation made by one side, true or false, is easily taken as race baiting on the other. I don't see how your unsupported accusations of racism are any less race baiting than the behavior of Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh.

If alleged race baiting is the only evidence you have of racism on the part of Tea Party supporters, that is weak evidence. How do allegations of race baiting prove that Tea Party supporters are racist?

I've never met an intelligent racist since they don't exist. Skin color has as much to do with one's character as eye color and hair color. I feel sorry for those that view the world through the color of one's skin, hair, and eyes. My suggestion would be to stop hanging out with idiots and start enjoying life; you're obviously paranoid and politicians are playing you like a fiddle.

Racism is Ignorance!

The Tea Party represents that!

This is Unfortunate

I am not even going to pretend as if I read all of you sttatement.

You guys Hate Brown and Black People!

This way of thinking is truly unfortunate. I have read your statements carefully, in their entirety, in an effort to understand your positions. I am sorry that you have not extended the same courtesy to me, and I am sorry that you apparently have little desire for real political discourse, despite you assertions elsewhere. I would like to have expected more from the president of the Lenoir County Young Democrats.

I have only tried to offer an alternative viewpoint; to play Devil's Advocate, if you will. I do this because I find blanket accusations of racism (or any evil, for that matter) to be distasteful when the accuser has no evidence to support those accusations. I was taught to study other people's motivations and arguments carefully, to give the benefit of the doubt as long as it's warranted, and to ask questions - as a matter of courtesy and to facilitate better understanding and communication.

I've sincerely asked for evidence and explanation, so that I can better understand your motivations and arguments. You have offered no significant evidence, and no explanation, and I am left with the assumption that you have no evidence or explanation to support your accusations other than your own personal bitterness and hatred. That is most unfortunate.

Shameless Audacity and Hatred

You have posted hate-filled, baseless diatribes and admitted that you have no interest in engaging in real discussion. You continue to refuse to offer evidence to support your blanket allegations of racism. And yet you present me with a list of positions, most of which I never purported to defend, and then demand that I defend them? Your attempt to direct attention away from your own lack of support is obvious, and I'm saddened by the knowledge that you are in charge of a political organization. I hate to think of the damage you're doing to those who follow you.

But, for the sake of argument, I'll go with it. However, I will continue to play Devil's Advocate. These arguments may or may not coincide with my own views - I make them here to show you that reasonable minds may disagree. And since you asked for them, I sincerely hope you can find the time to read them.

Ok give me one Half Way decent reason why anyone would want to do away with the CIVIL rights Act.

Title II of the CRA of 1964 prohibits discrimination in privately-owned business engaged in interstate commerce. At this point, the concept of interstate commerce has been expanded to the extent that nearly any business in the United States can be said to engage in interstate commerce. Racist discrimination is abhorrent. However, some may also consider it immoral, if not counterproductive, to force someone else to accept another person. If a racist doesn't want to serve someone, forcing him or her to do so may only produce resentment on their part, which will fuel rather than quell their racist attitudes.

No one has seriously advocated the repeal of the Civil Rights Act as a whole, and I would appreciate it if you, HallStyle, would narrow your rhetoric at least enough to reflect that reality. Rand Paul and those who agree with his sentiments only question that morality and efficacy of forcing some people to accept or serve others. They believe that social pressure is a better method.

Give me One Half way decent reason anyone would say the President hates White people when he is just as much White as he is Black?

President Obama campaigned as, and was heralded as, the first black president of the United States. Whether correctly or not, he is associated more strongly with African-American culture than he is with European-American culture.

Explain to how a simple debate over border patrol and enforcement turned into lets Repeal the 14th Amendment?

Again, your attempts to create a straw man argument are frustrating. There has been no serious discussion of repealing the entire 14th Amendment. The only part of the Amendment that was proposed for repeal is Section 1, which states that all people born in the United States are automatically citizens thereof.

The idea of border patrol and immigration enforcement is to keep illegal immigrants out and to manage the flow of immigrants into the United States. By crossing the border and having a child here, who automatically becomes a citizen of the United States, immigrants who are here illegally are able to take advantage of a law originally intended to guarantee citizenship to blacks. They either force us to give them citizenship or put us in the terrible situation of either breaking apart their family or forcibly deporting an American citizen. Amending the 14th Amendment so that birth on American soil does not, by itself, guarantee citizenship may address this problem and help simply immigrations enforcement.

Explain the reports by Homeland security of Home Grown Right Wing Militias becoming more of a threat since Obamas election?

The obvious answer is because Obama is very much a liberal, so those who are radically conservative will become more active during his presidency. Simple cause and effect; action and reaction. Obama's administration may feel threatened by these militias, and so direct the DHS to expend more resources tracking them.

Alternatively (or possibly in addition, I suppose), the Obama administration may want to paint these militias in a negative light, and so directs the DHS to track them and classify them as a higher threat.

Explain when Two Black Congressman were Spit on and called the N Word by Tea Baggers?

Quite possibly because those engaging in the abusive behavior were racist. However, in any large crowd or organization, you will probably find radicals. Exceptions do not prove the rule, especially in a loosely-organized group that spans across the United States. The disgusting behavior exhibited by a few individuals does not prove that the entire group condones or engages in such behavior.

There is also the possibility that they were simply angry. Angry people often do stupid, hurtful things. An individual is not defined by a single act, just like a group is not defined by a single individual.

Explain this Stupid Birther Crap saying he wasn't Born in America which has Clear Racial Overtones!

It is silly. There are conspiracy theorists anywhere you go, and some people just can't be convinced, even when they are shown contrary evidence (or when their lack of evidence is pointed out). Although a significant number of Tea Party supporters buy into the birther arguments, most do not. And for that matter, a significant number of Americans buy into the birther arguments as well, though not a majority and the percentage is less among the general population than it is among Tea Party supporters (20% of the general population and 30% if I remember correctly).

Whether birther arguments have "Clear Racial Overtones" is a matter that I am sure can be debated, but you again provide no evidence for you categorical statement.

If they Aren't racist then they sure as hell don't have any sensitivities to issues that Minorities would consider Racial Why even Fight these Battles that you clearly aren't going to win?

I think I'm doing alright, but thank you for your concern. As to whether Tea Party supporters and others are not sensitive to issues that minorities consider racial, it's difficult for me to respond when I have no real idea of how you define "sensitivities."

If by "sensitivities," you mean that they do not approach the issues in a conciliatory manner, it could be because they have already been incited by accusations of racism. Or it could be that they do not, or did not, understand the racial mindsets of the minorities before accusations of racism were made.

If by "sensitivities," you mean that they do not concede issues that minorities interpret as racial, simply because minorities view the issue in question as a racial one, then it could be because they feel strongly about their own convictions.

By the Way none of this was even on the Table when Bush was in the White House now all of the Sudden you Righties Give a Damn? Give me a Break!

Any of these positions relating to immigration were on the table, in one form or another, during the Bush administration. They are more prominent now because the issue has come to a head with the passage of the Arizona immigration law. Some may not have been as developed as they are now, but the arguments have been around for many years. Whether you were aware of them or not is, of course, a different matter.

Similarly, sentiments against certain aspects of the CRA have been around since it was passed, as demonstrated by judicial decisions regarding the CRA. Rand Paul created a national controversy over the matter, which is why it has popped up again in the headlines.

The other issues you raise are all tied, in one way or another, to President Obama's administration, so it should come as no surprise that they didn't show up during Bush's.

Now, is there any chance that you might provide some real evidence to support your accusations? Or will you be content to just hide behind attempts at distraction?

The Truth of the Matter is

The RepubliCON Party is scared to Death of the Tea Party to the point that even once widely respected RepubliCONS like Lindsay Graham has joined in on this 14th Amendment debate!

They want to make sure that their Base Turns out in Huge Numbers. Yes the want to Talk Tax Cuts and Lower Taxes But that isn't going to get peoples Blood Boiling! They have Used that line so much that dog won't hunt! Especially after the Bush years when it was clear that the GOP really doesn't believe that!

So how do we maximize our Turn Out without focusing to much on the Economy that will still have to share Most of the Blame for? Hey (says GOP Stategist) lets talk about Social issues that always worked in the Past to get voters to come out! Lets Talk about them Gays and them illegals. While we are at it let tell them Blacks that the Civil Rights Act isn't needed anymore and everything MLK worked so hard to achieve his lasting legacy isn't Good for America!

I'm sorry

...but if he didn't have an updated blog with many details about him, I would swear that HallStyle was a troll.

It's also interesting how many regulars have stayed away from the thread.

Anthony is very energetic,

open about his identity, and he speaks his mind. And I don't believe I've ever seen him try to cleverly disguise his true motives. So no, he is not even close to being a troll.

As far as "regulars" avoiding this thread (or any other), probably 1/3 to 1/2 of all the blogs I write here never receive any comments. But that doesn't mean they aren't "of interest" to the readers who frequent this site. This is what I tell myself, anyway. ;)

I realize that he isn't a troll

It's just that BlackSheep posted well-thought out responses to each one of his concerns, and then he brushes it all aside by saying:

Simple fact is I gave you Great Reason and you gave bogus answers that anyone can see through the rhetoric.

I think comments like this are really the main reason that we see such a decaying political arena out there today. After TV got corrupted with 3 minute shouting matches broken up by commercials, I decided to look elsewhere for discussion. Now even some of the better places online to visit have become corrupted with that sort of nonsense.

I like coming to places like here because most everyone genuinely cares about what they post, and nearly everyone takes the time to become at least somewhat well-read on the subject before talking about it. I just got a little nervous not seeing anyone commenting on something that pretty clearly seemed a tad outrageous. Then again, I haven't really taken the time to shout down ncthinker on the other thread for being such a dumbass about gay marriage either, so maybe I'm not one to talk.

His Answers were Bull!

I have made no racist comments, nor defended them. I only asked that you defend your own accusations of racism with reasoned argument, and you have inexplicably refused to do so. Your only response has been to claim that my arguments are "bogus" and unimpressive, without a shred of rationale or evidence in return. Your behavior, especially your accusations that I myself am a racist, are baseless and sick.

You are a bigot, a racist, and a coward. You are bigoted because you believe in the superiority of your views despite your lack of evidence or rationale. You are racist because you care only for the color of peoples' skin, rather than the actions they take and the beliefs they hold as individuals. And you are a coward because you hide behind your accusations and the color of your skin, and you use the awful atrocities committed against your race and others as political weapons to oppress your opponents.

The Burdens of Leadership

I fully intended to leave this along after my last post. But, it was brought to my attention that you may not be as entirely unreasonable as I thought at first. You are the leader of a political group. In a political climate as polarized as ours, you might feel that conceding any argument to me, no matter how small or reasonable, would compromise your political or idealogical integrity in the eyes of your followers. If this is the case, I understand the burdens you bear as leader, whether they are real or perceived.

I hope that, before they drink anybody's Kool-Aid, your followers take the time to examine all of the available arguments and views with honest and open minds. There are positions that lie between the far left and far right extremes. And I hope that they have the patience and strength of character to choose for themselves, as individuals, which positions are most reasonable, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, or political ideology.

As for this thread, I am done.
