    Equating the Tea Party as being anything remotely close to the KKK is either intellectual dishonesty or complete and total ignorance. I'd like to think it's the latter, but I'm not sure yet. Let me know when you are going to attend a Tea Party to see for yourself. You might be surprised at how the far-left MSM, MM and other George Soros funded outfits have been lying to you for quite some time now.
    And it is not my fault you and others in this thread are being blinded by the Kool Aide. You go on and keep defending them and I will keep my intelligent mind on this issue. I have saw all I need to see and have read all I need to read that it is not a party I wish to be involved with.

    I feel really bad for the outright racist and even the ignorant people that are blind sheep that are not getting the racism involved with this Tea Party.

    I would rather be down with George Soros than a Grand Wizard of the KKK. YMMV and that is on you. Have a nice night

    There nothing to be blinded by Kali. I've been to two Tea Party events and I saw no racism whatsoever. I live in the deep south. If there was a racism problem with the Tea Party, it would show up here of all places wouldn't it? I've seen a video of a racist plant at a Tea Party event who was exposed. I've also seen a video of Tea Party supporters calling out a racist to his face who showed up at an event. You've provided zero evidence of racism at a Tea Party that actually came from Tea Party supporters.

    There are racists that are part of the Tea Party, but that number is so small that it's not even a mole hill and yet the far left media is trying to make a mountain out of it. There are more racists involved with the Democratic Party than there are the Republican Party and Tea Party combined. But that never gets mentioned by you and your ilk does it? You don't see me running around pointing out that fact because I know it's an insignificant number and it doesn't encompass the vast majority of what liberals/democrats believe. What you fail to grasp is that the Tea Party is a movement about fiscal responsibility, not about moral or social issues. This has been explained to you before. You may think you have an "intelligent mind", but in fact it is so far closed that you can't even see the truth anymore - even when it's right in front of your face. Show me a link between the "Grand Wizard of the KKK" and the Tea Party movement and I'll buy you a 1-year Platinum donation to this site.

Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    Is suggesting there is no racists in the tea party ridiculous? Absolutely. Then again, so is suggesting Tea Party Rallies are akin to KKK rallies.

    For every racist sign people find in a picture, there's dozens or hundreds of other people typically in the picture not suggesting such hate. There's also dozens of pictures of dozens to hundreds of people without any of them holding a racist sign. Taking a few signs and making everyone around it guilty by association is asinine, and illogical. The main way people justify the "tea party = racist" argument is based on nothing but biased opinion that assigns motive or views to people based off biased assumptions and stereotypes rather than fact.

    That said, I think its rather ridiculous to criticize people for ignorance on the tea party and any racist elements and then turn around and make an ignorant and completely unverifiable claim that it's a "fact" there are more Racists in the democratic party than in the Republican Party and Tea Party combined. Basing this on what?

    Personally, I think that the racists...the honest to goodness, legitimate, full on racists...are a significant minority in the large scope of each side of the aisle, and make up primarily the fringes. And to attempt to quantify either side is a useless cause. Its when you start gettinginto the more questionable "racist" accusations that the lines begin to blur a bit, but frankly I feel so often those arguments are more a factor of people creating an issue out of nothing to further a victim mentality and to demonize enemies than any honest to goodness true form of racism.

    I agree with CC completely about Bachmann. There's no good way to "teach" during a debate. If Bachmann was successful in her debate with the teenager, the left wing pundits and and die hards would spin it immedietely into her beating up on a kid, lowering herself to debating a teenager, insult her by suggesting teenagers are the only people she could out debate, etc. If Bachmann was not successful, then she'd be grilled as well only even worse. There would be zero benefit to her in debating the teenager. Are we honestly thinking that if she actually did significantly better than the teenager most of the liberal die hards would go "Oh wow, Bachmann actually does know her stuff. I like her and respect her now".

    If you believe that, I have swamp land in Florida I want to sell you.

    As to the "attention whoring" of the girl, that's somewhat hard to say. This is the type of story that screams of a situation where a reporter or someone heard about it and sought out the story. If she purposefully promoted herself and got the word out and got the news interest going on her...yeah, annoying self publicity. But if this was more something she was roped into doing, even if going along willingly, I wouldn't really say attention whoring. And, even if it is shameless self promotion, depending on what this girls honest aspirations are I can't really blame her. This seems more of a legitimate attempt to get involved into politics than it is an attempt to get 15 minutes of fame to be a "celebrity" or something of the sorts.

    The people actually giving threats are ridiculous, and anything found legitimate should be looked into. That said, with the aninonimity of the internet, crap like this isn't as uncommon of an occurence as it may've been. I'd dare say a good bit of the various threats are completely hollow or even flat out fraudulent. Doesn't really make it right, but postings on internet boards don't worry me as much as if she was getting threatening phone calls or things sent to her home.

    I'm down with neither, just like most Conservatives. That's what sets us apart from the Leftists: we have enough common sense that we don't have to tolerate either one of them.

    Now, THAT'S the kind of thing I'm always surprised to see a Global Moderator post.

    Carry on.

    Thank you. Because every time somebody speaks in absolutes, I can't believe them. The truth is somewhere in the middle. So if a flying monkey starts screeching at me about how wrong I am while they commence flinging poo? I have to figure I struck a nerve. And I can't have struck a nerve if there is not truth therein.

    Al Sharpton

    Louis Farrakhan and the entire Nation of Islam
    Black Panthers
    Malik Zulu Shabazz and the New Black Panthers
    Melvin Watt and the CBC

    Shall I go on?
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    The Weather Underground were terrorists, not racists.

    The worst racists in the United States are, of course, the Democrats, Anyone who supports the Democrat Party is sympathetic to racists and racist policies.

    Is that "striking a nerve"?

    Or is it just as ridiculous as claiming Tea Party members are "racist"?
