Media Misrepresents Tea Party Movement

Remember when Tea Party members were racist, homophobic haters who opposed President Barack Obama for the color of his skin, not his policies?

That’s yesterday’s news. Turns out, the Tea Party is a violent militia aimed at hurting anyone who doesn’t see eye-to-eye with its warped worldview. And Republicans are guilty by association.

Just ask Democrats like Steny Hoyer and James Clyburn or read reports in the mainstream media.

Rep. Hoyer (D-Md.), the House majority leader, recently demanded Republicans speak out against the violence, which so far is seemingly non-existent. It’s as absurd as someone being told to denounce murder or other egregious acts. But in political circles such requests can be profoundly effective.

“The bottom line is we need to be very careful in public life that our rhetoric does not turn into incitement,” Hoyer told CBS’ “The Early Show” on March 25. Hoyer didn’t seem so worked up during President George W. Bush’s two terms in office, a time when the rhetoric couldn’t have been nastier.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also called for the GOP to reject such behavior, a great way to prolong the story and help voters forget about the Obamacare bill bullied into law. And, sure enough, several Republicans did just that.

Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) went one step further than his Democratic colleagues, saying Republicans were “aiding and abetting this kind of terrorism.”
