Rachel Maddow does a great piece on the folks behind the new law in Arizona. I think this incident is just the tip of the iceberg. As I’ve said for a while, the media has legitimized the Tea Party movement (that can barely scare up a crowd of a couple hundred people with misspelled signs) and empowered the fringe elements in our society. It began when the village idiot was elected as president in 2000 and then again in 2004. And what sent them over the edge of course was when the American people elected the first black president. Anyone who says race has nothing to do with the Tea Party is a fucking RACIST, I’m sorry. But if you can really convince yourself that it has nothing to do with race, you are in denial and a racist, whether you want to admit it or not.
Eugenics…..unbelievable, really. Go check out this website for a documentary based on the book The War Against the Weak. I saw it at the Rhode Island International Film Festival and was blown away. If you get a chance to see it, do so.
Now I don’t claim to be one of the greatest spellers in the world, especially as I get older…but the teabaggers really need to learn to use spell check or discover the website Dictionary.com. This post from TPM is about the new Armed Forces Tea Party Patriots, I think he put this press release out because somebody whispered the words “court martial” into his ear. But of course, the really funny part is the first part of the press release, from TPM
In a press release sent this morning that misspelled the president’s first name, Stein wrote that in recent days his group had been “attacked by many people calling us traitors.” And he declared:
Armed Forces Tea Party Patriots in no way supports a military uprising or anything to that subject, further more we recognize Barak (sic) Obama as the Command-in-Chief and we do not support disobeying orders that are lawful with Constitution, and will continue to follow orders given to us….We do understand that there is a time and place for expression and the military work place is not one of them.
Come on now, he doesn’t even know how to spell his Commander-in-Chief’s name? It seems to be a common denominator with the teabagger group, remember the Flickr page devoted to their prowess at making signs?
