    I think the vast majority of tea partiers are sane and the nutwads don't represent them anymore than I think the Unabomber represents the left. Also I do not think it unreasonable at this point in time to suspect a disgruntled tea partier with a political agenda pissed about Obama to pull something like this. Just like in cases of ecoterrorism I would look towards left leaning groups.

    Why? Do you have previous examples of violence by tea party folk? Or are you buying into the anti-tea party rhetoric....


    It is no more likley a tea part person would have done this than a liberal would fly an airplane into the pentegon.

    Wow, where to begin.

    First, there was no evidence this bomb was anywhere near a government building. So unless you're taking the stance that Tea Parties are apparently instilling "anti-america as a whole" ideals rather than "anti-government" ideas I'm not sure how you can equate this to looking at environmental groups when an ecoterrorism attack is done. I would still think its a reach if this bomb was at a government building, but at least then you could have SOME way to tie it to Tea Party sentiment taken to the extreme. This was just in the middle of NYC

    Second, the difference between the Tea Parties and groups like ALF or ELF is that ALF and ELF have a HISTORY of terrorist activity so its reasonable to possible look their way. The Tea Parties on the other hand do NOT have a history of terrorist activity. So again, your attempt to equate the Tea Partiers to those kind of movements is incorrect.

    There is absolutely zero legitimate reason otehr than baseless speculation fueled by bias and prejudice against that movement to think they would've done this. If you take their rhetoric to the extreme it still doesn't account for a bomb in the middle of NYC. If you take their history into account there is no pattern of terrorism. There is absolutely ZERO substantial reason on which to base a claim at the start of this of "It was a Tea Partier". Nothing.

    Yes, but you have to look at where the bomb was placed. If this was a vehicle parked near a federal government building, then you might be correct in saying it wouldn't be unreasonable for it to be a tea partier.

    However, with the placement of the vehicle, I didn't suspect it to be a tea partier that would be involved with this.

    I suspected a moron with little to no skill or political affiliation that watched TV all day.

    Will move away from this ignorant and foolish strawman you keep enacting.

    When did Rev say that all the tea party is all perfect and pure, get some quotes.

    He's saying that the movement does not have a history of performing terrorist attacks. Disagree? Post some proof. Otherwise stop with this ridiculous bull**** strawman you keep trying to beat up, because its not fooling anyone.
