    Which is radical fringe is worse? The Weather Underground or the Tea Party? Why?

    We all have heard how radical the Tea Party is and how out of touch they are with reality. So how do the compare with the radical left organization calling themselves the Weather Underground formed in Ann Arbor from the SDS. The Weather Underground seemed pretty much out there and used violence to make their point. Please state your opinion.

    If the weather underground group has used violence I would have to say them. As much as I may dislike their message, I've personally never heard of the Tea party utilizing organized violence of any kind.

    You finally accept that the Tea Party is a radical group of people?

    I'm just not sure what is so radical and fringe about the idea of downsizing government, and reducing the power of the feds. Maybe it's just me .

    anything left or right of center will always be considered radical. I am surprised you voted the for the group that has NEVER blown up any government buildings or killed anyone. How can you justify that thinking?

    Practically? The Weather Underground never had much influence or impact beyond the shock value of its bombings so I think the comparison is a little unfair.

    Ask a liberal, they will tell the Tea Party is nothing but older white racist pigs among other things

    Let's see, if we're going to compare a political movement started in 2009 with a terrorist organization which has been defunct for nearly 40 years, perhaps we should also compare the left-wing PETA to the right-wing 1920's KKK. Makes as much sense.
