This is part of the problem but not all. The tea party has created an environment that adualt males feel they have the right to stomp on the head of those who disagree. There are lunatics in both parties I will admit. Is there a teaparty member than can honestly deny that there are many in their organization that push and promote violence and confrontation?
What worries me about this is that it could push some lunatics to the point that they feel they have the right to start shooting those who disagree or maybe even polaticians that defeated their canidate. It could happen you know? well not if you listen to a tea partier, of course. There is no way it will ever escalate to that level.
If that ever happens I wonder how quickly it will be forgotten. It only took a month or so for America to ignore, and accept that some tea partiers believe in an occasional head stomp of women who disagree.
My bad I forgot to post my disclaimer:
YOU SEE THAT?...I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM. We are alot alike.
"Everyone is hoping she is okay and I don't think anybody believes this sort of behavior is tolerable," said Riddle. "We can disagree on issues and be passionate about them but I don't think there is any room for someone throwing a young lady to the ground and stomping her on the head no matter how much they disagree with her."
What I saw was that lady charging at Rand Paul like a lunitic. She was tackled and thrown to the ground and stomped. Just like she should have been.
We both have bad judgement when it comes to evaluating and acting on certain situations. After the way that nut charged at Rand Paul; she should have been stumped to within as inch of her life.
Friendly, the problem I have with the tea party is their use of hate and anger to spread their message and inflame their supporters. I'm sorry but a substantial segmant of the tea party doesn't need to be bombarded with images of opponents with tagets on them. They dont need to the oppurtunity to join their canidates at the gun range and take turns using pictures of their opponents for target practice. This doesn't send the right kind of message to their brains and those in power know it. Thats why fox news keeps promoting the tea party. Thats where most tea party members download today's approved version of the truth.
One side effect of spreading all these lies to make your crazies mad is that it also makes the crazies on the other team mad. Of course losing a few tea party members would really help get the troops fired up wouldn't it? I hope they haven't thought of it yet. We could have another watergate and we wouldn't have a news service left we could count on to care about the truth like America had in the 70's.
I'm the tea parties most outspoken opponent. I think Rand Paul should keep his mouth shut and stop embarrassing his father.
If you check out a few of my hubs; you will see I'm as far left as you can get. I'm a MOVE ON fan. But anyone that charges at any kind of public person should be stumped by that persons' security people. She should be greatful she made it out alive.
I'm with you completely regarding the danger the tea party folks pose to this civil society.
Lovemychris, Ralph Deeds, Ron Montgomery, Paul Wingert, Doug Hughes, Fishinfreak, yourself, etc.
Actually, the media is a contributing factor as they try to sensationalize every little thing that happens whether it is deserved or not.
Left and right all have their weirdos.
The issue in Arizona was not related to the tea party regardless how the haters try to paint it. The dude was a psycho and the reality is politics had little or nothing to do with it, he was trying to get attention and just used a conveinent venue.
He should have shot himself and saved his victims the suffering.
I agree with you. I just wrote a hub about this topic.
Logic, I dont think it's possibly to state that politics had nothing to do with this latest attack by one of the members of the tea party who has anger issues and mental delusions. Your stating that this attack on an opponent who defeated a tea party canidate could in no way be related to the tea party with no need of the facts, correct? . Denying that the posibility exists with out most of the facts is stetching reality just a bit dont you think? What do you think the chances are that there are groups with in the tea party movement that are celebrating this guy's murders. It's the same mentality that other christian conservative group called the army of god display's when they honor anyone who will kill an abortion doctor. There is no way to claim the the tea party is non-racist, you cant prove that it is not against killing abortion doctors. All of these groups feed off of the hate they get under the disguise of religion or news on the fox news comedy hour.
A large portion of the tea party members consider themselves to be conservative christians. A sizeable portion of conservative christians agree with the Army of god's stance on abortion and the Westboro's church of god's hatefulness towards homosexuals, stating with certainty that no possiblility exists for there to be a lunatic tea party member with the mentality that allows him to justify murder for the cause, cant be done logically. It takes faith to buy that one. This guy already has two strikes against him, He's a lunatic, he'a a tea party member and he dislikes the victims opinions. That's actually three strikes but I gave you a bad call by the ump on that last pitch.
"This guy already has two strikes against him, He's a lunatic, he'a a tea party member and he dislikes the victims opinions."
Who is a tea party member?
The sheriff blamed the vitriolic political rhetoric that has consumed the country, much of it occurring in Arizona.
"When you look at unbalanced people, how they respond to the vitriol that comes out of certain mouths about tearing down the government. The anger, the hatred, the bigotry that goes on in this country is getting to be outrageous," he said. "And unfortunately, Arizona, I think, has become the capital. We have become the mecca for prejudice and bigotry."
Giffords, 40, is a moderate Democrat who narrowly won re-election in November against a tea party candidate who sought to throw her from office over her support of the health care law. Anger over her position became violent at times, with her Tucson office vandalized after the House passed the overhaul last March and someone showing up at a recent gathering with a weapon.
Giffords expressed similar concern, even before the shooting. In an interview after her office was vandalized, she referred to the animosity against her by conservatives, including Sarah Palin's decision to list Giffords' seat as one of the top "targets" in the midterm elections.
"For example, we're on Sarah Palin's targeted list, but the thing is, that the way that she has it depicted has the crosshairs of a gun sight over our district. When people do that, they have to realize that there are consequences to that action," Giffords said in an interview with MSNBC.
Jim, I will admit that I cant find the link to where I read that the shooter was a tea party member. I withdraw that statement and appologize for posting unproveable statements. There, I manned up.
Now I still think that there is enough circumstantial links to the attack to make the average cop take a look see, don't you? Who benefited from the crime is always considered when looking for a motive correct? In a sick and twisted way, the tea party benefited from this assasination attempt. They have one less opponent to deal with. It's not such a sick and twisted reality to a sick and twisted person like this one. Even with out an interest in the tea party considered, do you think it's a good idea for any political party to be running ads showing Americans with targets on their back? America is losing it's ability to think for it's self. A lot of this country has been reduced to reacting to generated images. This guy worried about mind control, and lived in an area that showed the victim with a target on her or made repeated mention of her being a target.
That makes the count 2 balls and two strikes. The shooter definately didn't like the victims opinions and work. I am basing this on the fact that he tried to murder her. I could be wrong, I know.
"Jim, I will admit that I cant find the link to where I read that the shooter was a tea party member."
Really? Imagine that.
To answer the question of your thread I believe it is you who is spreading hatred.
Pointing out that hatred exists is not spreading hate, does it?
I like trading zingers with you. It never acomplishes anything but it's entertaining and a great stress reliever. Thanks for being there for another human being for the first time in your life. Keep practicng and pretty soon you'll be able to do it with out all that pain.
Since you never responded to my question I will answer it for you.
You have no reason to believe the Safeway shooter was a member of the Tea Party, you only say it to further your agenda.
Lets use your logic.
A democrat has killed somebody somewhere at some point in the history of the United States. That must mean all democrats are killers.
Yep, thats sound logic.
Yes sir, I am using circular logic as it is the only kind my opponets followers understand. Make it sound good and they'lll be there for you when you need 'em. You orrta be gittin' skeered right about now don'cha know? We're evolvin' and learning to think like you, hahahaha
As I said on another thread, a lot of hate is coming from the Tea Party, but they're not alone. The far left is also capable of such. Go to page 9 of the following thread and look at the crimes committed by liberals and progressives:
