Poll Dancing

posted by The Sailor @ 9:44 PM Permalink

I'd like to point out some news today that got eclipsed by a white, upper middle class, college educated male who had a problem with the IRS and flew an airplane into a building that housed the IRS and left a manifesto behind and who matches the FBI's definition of terrorism, but wasn't a terrorist, but just happens to match a CNN poll of folks who make up the Tebaggers.

Nope, I'm not going to point that out at all. I just want to point out what CNN didn't in their article about their own poll; Teabaggers are 80% white.

Color me surprised. Not.

The teabaggers' constant claims that they cross party and racial lines has always been a cover for the facts; they didn't object to Bush trashing the Constitution, they didn't object to Bush taking a surplus and driving it into deficit due to tax cuts for the rich, they didn't object to illegal wars, they didn't object to torture, they didn't object to anything ... until the new sheriff, umm Obama, was in town

Now for some brain bleach:

Have you actually read the "manifesto (which I define more as a critique of events)"?

Another thing, the "Tea Party" community gatherings was originally started as a part of the Ron Paul for President (or as you may call it, the "Paultard") movement. Upon seeing it as an appreciably successful grassroots organization, the neo-con branch of the Republitard division of our incorporated slave-master set have been working overtime to usurp its momentum via infiltration. It was they who started redefining the "Tea Party" membership as "teabaggers (actually, a sourly humorous act of character assassination, except that the infiltrating "teabaggers" probably are)."

I find no element of this descriptive "Manifesto" by Joe Stack to even remotely sounds like a teabagger screed.

Here's Bradblog's posting of Stack's "Manifesto."

They called themselves tea baggers, sent tea bags, and proudly wear tea bags.

Then they found out the other meaning, not that there's anything wrong with that, and clutched their pearls and all 600 of them get airtime.

You can say they're Paulites all you want, but they are radical, christain, militia, gun loving, gay hating relatively rich middle aged white guys who can afford to pay Palin $100k to spout ignorant nonsense terms that she has to write on her palm to remember.

If you want Constitutional credibility with me you'd better be shouting for war crime trials for Cheney and screaming about Bush saying the Constitution is just a goddam piece of paper.

Again ~

I continue to make the difference between the "Tea Party" movement, and the brigands of hijacking "teabaggers." What was the Tea Party movement has been subverted into a teabagger extravaganza of mindless drivel. You however, don't seem to want to recognize a difference.

I don't know, but do you pay attention to what Ron Paul actually endorses? It seems to me that you should be in lock-step with him (at least as far as his stance on war and economic independence is concerned) because -- for years -- he's been emphasizing the need to clean out the Reagan/Bush/Clinton/Bushredux(and now Obama) regime of war crooks.

What I'm also saying is that, when there does seem to be any kind of a (corporately independent) grassroots, populist event evolving, the trans-national corporate masters of WDC use their tremendous infrastructure and wealth to first infiltrate, and then functionally destroy all significant aspects of its positive political cohesiveness.

This exact fate happened to the Democratic Party more than a decade ago when it started suffering from a self-flagellating cancer of panty-pissing spinelessness.

I mean, read what Stack wrote. it's lucid.

Stack was a murderer who tried to cheat on his taxes by forming a church and whined about it when he got caught.

He was not a 'little guy', he was well off and obviously had no thought to the wife and child he left behind homeless.

He killed an innocent man with his stupid act. He was just a stupid suicide bomber to me, I have no respect for him or his act.

That is interesting, and your point of view is also interesting.
