TEA PARTY PHOBIA

By Nick Fortune

The growing fear of the steadily emerging Tea Party movement is scaring the pants off of liberal progressives.  Liberals feel that they must fight back hard, using any tactics available to them.  In their panic, the liberal politicians and their liberal news media is ratcheting up the propaganda machine; they have prepared and are now implementing their agenda to defame the Tea Party movement and its members.  Charges of racism abound, and suggestions that the Republicans and / or Fox News is responsible for the creation of the Tea Party movement.  They just can't accept that the movement is legitimate and made up of people from different segments of our society.  In the past such people were referred to as the “silent” or “moral majority”. 

All of a sudden the liberal progressives want to celebrate Tim McVeigh’s “domestic terrorism”.  For years we haven’t heard anything about Tim McVeigh; there was no public interview with Oprah or Barbara Walters.  Why were there no interviews as were had with Charlie Manson and the son of Sam and many others? Now they’re trying to use McVeigh as a poster boy representing the Tea Party movement. Janet Napolitano accused people who had Ron Paul bumper stickers and veterans coming home from the Middle East wars as likely potential “domestic terrorists”.  How ridiculously irresponsible to accuse people of being potential terrorists because of a bumper sticker with Ron Paul’s name on it. How insensitive and repulsive to point the finger at our young men and women some of whom have given their lives as being potential terrorists?  Why is the sensitivity of MSNBC so selective?  Warnings and intimidations such as these are on the rise. 


Radical progressives are trying to form groups to infiltrate the Tea Party and use tactics to vilify and demonize the movement and its people.  While conservatives tend to be morally and ethically inclined, liberal progressives demonstrate over and over their philosophy of amorality.  While left wing media such as MSNBC distorts, mocks and demonizes the people in the Tea Party; they also sponsor divisive programming such as “DEBATING THE BLACK AGENDA”;  legitimizing and giving dignity to a divisive, self interest, racial agenda, while at the same time putting down the “white people” of the Tea Party movement.  They fail to see that there are blacks who are participating in the Tea Party movement while they must acknowledge the de Facto absence of white people who cannot benefit from a “black agenda.”  Why is MSNBC promoting a “Black Agenda” anyway; why not an American Agenda, why generate and promote racial divisiveness? 

Liberals like Robert Reich, Obama’s economic advisor, can freely say that he doesn’t want recovery jobs for "White Male Construction Workers,"  and recent Obama supreme court appointee, Sonya Sottomayor said; ““I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experience would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”  Apparently “white” men and women are fair game to be ridiculed, mocked and called racist.  While with the government applying Affirmative Action against white people and private industry using “diversity” against white people, somehow these “white” people are not supposed to be angry and fed up with this racist bias against them?

There is no white agenda; neither declared, nor implied.  The very idea that white people should be ashamed or be defensive and take a step backward, while according to MSNBC blacks should proudly move forward with a black agenda, is in itself racist.  As with people who love to use the “hate” word against other people; I’ve found that the accusers are more often the one’s filled with hatred, and are trying to project their hateful attitudes upon others.  So it is true with people who are quick to use the word “racist” against other people; the accusers are more often the racists.  They are people who are overly race conscious and who look scrupulously into every activity and try to read every mind hoping to discover racism; the very same racism that they themselves have in their hearts.  Somehow there is a belief that only white people can be racist.  And of course that’s not true, anyone can be a racist, racism exists in one’s heart. 

The liberal progressive media is poking and probing at the Tea Party much as they’ve done to Sarah Palin, hoping (I’d say praying but I know most don’t pray, as they don’t believe in god) to find something, anything that they can blow out of proportion and use against the Tea Party movement.  In order to counter these left wing attacks, there must be a vigilance, an awareness, of this effort to destroy the Tea Party movement and how it is manifest.
