    Default Tea Party Stupidity

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/0...#slide=1193571

    Anthony Weiner, who was unfairly attacked and in a stupid reason dismissed for a pretty minor scandal, is yet again in the spotlight. Though I suspect it may be his more staunch views on Obama half-bills and misappropriated promises, this time it involves good ole fashion bigotry on the part of his wife.

    Perhaps the stupidest, most deluded woman in congress, Bachmann stated.

    Last week, a group of Republican lawmakers led by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) drew widespread condemnation from both sides of the aisle for the loosely sourced contention that Huma Abedin, the Muslim-American wife of former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.), had ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
    In her defense, McCain, the more moderate of the Republicans stated.

    McCain strongly pushed back against this charge, taking to the Senate floor to call the allegations "nothing less than an unwarranted and unfounded attack on an honorable woman."
    And representing good old stupidity.

    Wes Harris, the founder and chairman of the Original North Phoenix Tea Party, now says McCain's words have given him grounds to mount an effort to unseat the longtime senator.

    In an interview with the Arizona Capitol Times, Harris called McCain an "embarrassment," before laying out a variety of unapologetic anti-Islamic sentiments.

    “Have you ever read the Quran? I suggest you do so, because anyone that is a Muslim is a threat to this country, and that’s a fact,” Harris told the Times. “There is no such thing as a moderate Muslim. If they are Muslim they have to follow the Quran. That’s their religion and that’s their doctrine.”
    The brilliant scholar of Islamic theology had retorted.

    If anyone still wants to compare Occupy with the Tea Party, you are daft mad. Occupy doesn't have the sheer number of idiots and loudmouths in top positions, it has no official nor government elected supporters and officials as the Tea Party, and actually has sane, objective policies such as removing corporations from wall street and better health and social services.

    The Tea Party, though thank god is dying down since people can only realize the irrationality of the movement, still represents a considerable niche of radicalized right-wingers.

    Anyone who is not simply stirred by the creeping bigotry and racism reawakening in America, is both deluded to progressive idealism and enlightenment values, as well as the plurality and freedom intentions of the nation's founders.

    I like the part where you have gobbled up the fat load the mainstream media has shot in your face when they claim the Tea Party is nothing but a bunch of idiots / psychotics / white people etc.. I'm not a tea party member, but every time you bother to barely scratch the surface of these ridiculous assertions it turns out to be a tempest in a teapot. Also last I checked one idiotic statement by Bachmaan does not matter fuck all for the greater movements purpose.

    Oh noez they want smaller goverment and more civil liberties~! THOSE BASTARDS

    They want balanced budgets that don't saddle us with more crushing debt to carry the losers of society on our backs with no end in sight. HOW DARE THEY

    etc..



    That you give the 'Occupy' movement any credit for being anything other than a bunch of socialist rejects that want what other people have without any effort of their own speaks volumes about who you are as a person.

    I'm going to go ahead and guess - clueless college kid without any real world experience that is completely deluded into believing socialism is a workable system and Obama is a good president.

    Not really a tea party thing, just some Republicans like Bachmann coming up with these 'special' attacks.

    But yeah, the whole thing's a joke.

    Dismissed? That implies he was forced out. He resigned (self choice) after a humiliating scandal involving him sending nude pics of himself to a college student. I guess that behaviour is OK for a congressman in your world (if he is a democrat).

    If Huma Adebin's parents and brother are associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, a promoter of jihadi ideology and associations with terrorist groups like Hamas, it's in the public's interest and completely fair to ask her "what's up with that?", she is a public servant and close aide to a cabinet secretary. If she has no ties herself then so be it.

    You cant be held accountable for your associations.
    Jermiah Wright
    Bill Ayers
    Tony Rezco
    the list goes on and on.


    And I would add, that yes, any muslim that follows his religion strictly, cant be a good american. It, quite literally, is like saying a Nazi would be a good jew.

    The thread is hereby officially renamed "Strawcock stupidity".

    Bachwoman isn't teaparty and the real teaparty can easily be compared to occupy. Both were founded on economic mischief in government in cohesion with their buttbuddies on wallstreet and banking.

    Well, to get to details there was no nudity. Secondarily, its not like this is a pointless "scandal" that should have no bearing on politics. I mean, Ron Paul's own racism scandals didn't take him off politics, but the fact that he was pressured by political opponents (Obama and the Publicans) and the fact that its a fucking minor issue and we don't expect politicians to be not human makes it trivial.

    If Huma Adebin's parents and brother are associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, a promoter of jihadi ideology and associations with terrorist groups like Hamas, it's in the public's interest and completely fair to ask her "what's up with that?", she is a public servant and close aide to a cabinet secretary.

    Except that's only ascertained by an extremist right wing think tank, with not an ounce of credible evidence.

    But of course, you are free to be as selective as you want to so I can't criticize you.

    Because I am right. The mainstream tea party, ones manifested by these little tea party groups and aged celebrities, are nothing but crackpots. Not an ounce of anything beyond traditional fundamentalist Christian conservatism.

    Oh noez they want smaller goverment and more civil liberties~! THOSE BASTARDS

    If you are talking about the Republican tea party, they are as much for markets as say Herman Cain or their revered leader Palin. Go ahead and vote for either.

    That you give the 'Occupy' movement any credit for being anything other than a bunch of socialist rejects that want what other people have without any effort of their own speaks volumes about who you are as a person.
    In a dulling move, you can easily refute my assertion that the tea party, sans whatever Ron Paul movement that died within it long ago, is a credible group but the Occupy are stereotyped to being nothing but rejects.

    Whereas I draw evidence from the views and points of Tea Party leaders and organizations, you draw it from nothing but your own stupidity.

    I'm going to go ahead and guess - clueless college kid without any real world experience that is completely deluded into believing socialism is a workable system and Obama is a good president.
    Yeah, this magical thing called "the real world" where we have as soon as we have a 9-5 job. Sure is a credible barrier from knowledge and reality of the world!

    Tell me how getting a job for a company somehow makes you adult? Because I've been self-sufficient for two or so years now, either full time or part-time + school so I'm really no different.

    1) Then why did he resign if it was so trivial? He knew he was gonna get slaughtered by the voters, cuz it kind of was a big deal that a married congressman was sexting women 20 years younger than him and even his own party distanced itself from him. Ron Paul could survive in his distract but his presidential ambitions sure weren't helped and he basically never got anything going in his run except when his neckbeard supporters would goonrush caucuses.

    2) So if she's got nothing to hide and no family ties to these jihadis then what's the uproar about? If anything all these loud protests from the entrenched DC political class make the whole thing look more suspicious. All Bachmann & friends did was ask for an investigation into any brotherhood influence in US policy circles, they're not alleging anything.

    I can't believe the level of stupid that comes out whenever Americans talk about politics. It's like you turn off your brains and become cheerleaders for your respective football teams.

    From that part of the Newsroom speech about what made America great "We didn't identify ourselves by who we voted for in the last election."

    People wasting time arguing over stupid shit instead of living their life. That should be definition for every ideology except libertarians.

    Because everyone kept making a fuss and because his own party leader, Obama, publicly stated he should.

    He lost political support when it otherwise should have slipped through the rocks.

    2) So if she's got nothing to hide and no family ties to these jihadis then what's the uproar about?

    They asked for a pointless investigation that shows obvious discrimination because of allegations from a right wing "think tank".

    I mean, sure it would not be trivial had their been actual credible fucking evidence but all sides of the spectrum has called this stupid.
