The Socialist Answer To The Tea Party
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
The democrats are nothing if they are not stunningly predictable.
The democrats have been having fits because the Tea Party is giving them fits. They don’t like the Tea Party. In fact – they HATE it! But they WANT one and they want one in the worst sort of way.
In an effort to replicate the tea party's success, 170 liberal and civil rights groups are forming a coalition that they hope will match the movement's political energy and influence. They promise to "counter the tea party narrative" and help the progressive movement find its voice again after 18 months of floundering.
“The groups involved represent the core of the first-time voters who backed President Obama -- including the National Council of La Raza, NAACP, AFL-CIO, SEIU and the United States Student Association. (The effort is separate from the Democratic Party's plan to spend $50 million trying to reach those same voters.)” Read the entire article at the Washington Post HERE.
With only a cursory glance one finds so many problems with this that it is difficult to locate a point at which to begin pointing them out.
However, we will try.
First the Tea Party was created, for all intents and purposes, by the Democratic Party and, of course, their attempt to murder our republic. The dems didn't MEAN to create a right wing political movement, but their massive attempt to turn the US from a constitutional republic to a socialist dung heap certainly caused the backlash that resulted in the Tea Party movement.
See, the Tea Party is a true grassroots organization. It sprang from the people. In the case of “One Nation, it is borning as a result of hatred of, and envy of, the Tea Party, and it is NOT, I repeat, it is NOT A GRASSROOITS organization.
Politicians, labor leaders, and minority organizations are creating “One Nation.” (If “One Nation” is the name the dems finally settle upon. The last we heard they were still arguing about the name of the organization.)
One thing we can be sure of, however, it will be run by, and used by, the Democratic Party and its socialist allies in the labor unions and the minority organizations, to dupe those who continually give their vote to the democrats, election after election, in order for the democrats to perpetuate their Plantation Politics movement which put Obama in the White House and gave them control of Congress.
You must understand: The Democratic Party is made up of two kinds of members: the used -- and the users.
You know, it really is sad to see an entire sector of the American population remain in slavery. Call it what you will but slavery comes closest to describing the condition of those who, for generations, have relied upon the government to feed them and cloth them and supply them with enough money to enjoy such things and large shiny cars, cell phones, cable TV, tattoos that cost hundreds of dollars, and luxuries the average middle class Americans will buy only with their disposable income. It is the oldest of political strategies. It is nothing more than buying votes.
This is a shameful manner in which to conduct America’s political business. But there appears to be no shame in the Democratic Party.
Year after year we watch as they go about their skullduggery, unabashedly, from the precinct level all the way to the White House.
The press, who used to be counted upon to be the watchdogs of the people, refuses to call them on their underhanded way of doing political business. But that is no longer surprising as we have come to accept that the press has sold out to them, as well.
The Tea Party is not a Republican organization. In fact the GOP is frightened and a little embarrassed by the Tea Party. Oh, the GOP wants the support of the Tea Party, but they take umbrage at the way the Tea Party calls their hand on their lack of spine and their love for the “status quo,” in other words -- the way the Republican Party abhors “rocking the boat.” The Tea Party revels in rocking the boat.
Those cobbling together the “Coffee Party,” One Nation, insist the democrats are not running them. But even the dimmest bulb among us knows One Nation will be a democratic operation from top to bottom.
