The Case Against the Tea Party

On numerous occasions, the Tea Party has been maligned by critics as un-American, Nazis, Members of the KKK, racists, ignorant, homophobes, and many, many more. The mainstream media has described the movement as a fringe group that is not representative of the majority of Americans.

If this is the case; then can someone explain a few things to me?

Why was the website, CrashTheTeaParty.org, even created if the Tea Party is a fringe group? The mission of this group, and I quote, is:

“To dismantle and demolish the Tea Party by any non-violent means necessary.”

The plan of action, and I quote, is:

“By infiltrating the Tea Party itself…”; “…act on their behalf in ways which exaggerate their least appealing qualities…”; “…disrupt and derail their plans.”

The Democrats/Progressives have also attempted to mischaracterize the Tea Party as a fringe group of racists, homophobes, and various other derogatory terms.

Question: Why did the Congressmen choose to walk through the middle of a crowd of protestors other than to incite them to do something that would discredit the movement? Congressmen have never walked to the Capitol Building in my lifetime. Why this time?

Then there is the issue of the Tea Party candidate in the Nevada Senate campaign to replace Harry Reid. It seems that people thought the Tea Party candidate was a Democratic plant. Then the same candidate is now facing felony charges. Criminal convictions tend to do a bang-up job of discrediting a political candidate; or in this case a political movement.

Hollywood and the media has also joined the fight against the Tea Party. Jeneane Garafolo, in an interview with Keith Olbermann, had this to say about the Tea Party:

For such a fringe group, the Democrats/Progressives seem to be absolutely obsessed with them. Could it be because the Tea Party is now a force to be reckoned with? The Democrats’ opposition to the Tea Party is not on the merits of ideas, but based on the same fear and paranoia which is what they claim created the Tea Party in the first place.
