…sometimes all you have to do is flip it around.
Replace “OWS” with “Tea Party” and ask yourself – Who are the “domestic terrorists”?
How do Tea Partiers at town hall meetings, clutching printouts of legislation they’ve read, losing their temper with the congressman who signed off on it, who did not read it, get called “rubes” and “violent,” etc. when OWS, in the public square, clutching signs advocating revolution (vs. restoration) of the Republic, possessing an alarmingly perverted understanding of basic, American civics, and who feel free to poop on cop cars & people’s front steps, get warm-fuzzies from the media as the “best among us” as Van Jones described them on MSNBC?
Alan Colmes robustly & monolithically defended them, as recently as yesterday, when they’ve racked up well north of 3,000 arrests, and have, in every city, not just a few, but every city, caused mayhem, harm, vandalism, and even little school kids to be so scared of them they made them cry(!), and he & like-minded Democrats are still insisting it’s “infiltrators” doing the bad stuff… just the”fringe”
Sarah Palin cracks a loud FART in Alaska, and MSNBC is wall-to-wall she aimed at it at poor black people, and ate tacos the night before so it could kill the ozone just that much more on it’s way there - then based on that thin gruel, they and NBC / CBS / ABC / PBS / CNN / NYT / WashPo / HuffPo, etc. deem THAT PROOF CERTAIN that ALL TEA PARTY ARE VIOLENT, RACIST, IGNORANT RUBES.
Again, I ask you: RAISING YOUR VOICE. HOLDING A SIGN. That’s the moral equivalent of what OWS has done? I regard this movement as little more than domestic terror! (Just replace “OWS” with “Tea Party” and ask yourself…) People are scared. They’re being physically, emotionally, and financially harmed by them. That’s not 1st amendment. First amendment is showing up, saying your peace, and leaving a place like you found it.
Me? I believe my lyin’ eyes…
…and the police reports, and the signs, and the filth, disease, rape, violence, theft, fear…
Pick! Quick! Your 16 year old daughter wants to go out on Saturday night to OWS or a Tea Party meeting. PICK.
Yeah… Thought so.
