    Please state your opinion.



    What has the Weather Underground done recently?

    That is an organization which no longer exists in its previous form.

    The Tea Party is not a radical fringe organization. Its members have a lot of power in the GOP.

    They are no longer around so how can they be "worse"? They never implemented a single policy and had little to no affect on the political outlook of this country? They never shut down the government? They didnt do squat. They are a defunct organization so how can you even compare an organization that is defunct to the tea party!?

    First of all, it's less violent and worse of the two.

    Second, just because their demonstrations have been peaceful in no way implies that the movement itself is peaceful.

    Third, they have been allied with, or at least very close in beliefs to, militant groups that have openly condoned violence as an option.

    linked by liberal nutjobs desperate to squash anyone that disagreed with them. The Weather Underground blew up government buildings killing anyone that were against them. We get it, you support domestic terrorism

    THEY ARE NO LONGER AN ORGANIZATION! How can you compare a once defunct organization to a live and active organization?

    .... You're either joking or have no concept of how organizations work. For example, the Negro League stopped operating as a major league in 1951. I'm sure there are still members of the Negro League who are alive. Does that mean the Negro League is still around as a major league? No. Logic yo.
