The Tea Parties — An Angry Mob of Racists? by The Elephant's Child

Someone in some back room of the progressive political establishment thought that accusing the Tea Party movement of being racist, homophobic, and so on, and so on, all the usual smears, would be successful in demolishing the movement. Amid reports and videos of peaceful gatherings of people who were having a good time protesting, the accusations just weren’t working.   So they sent infiltrators with racist, homophobic, Nazi, and Klan signs to join the crowd and wave their signs whenever they saw a camera. That’s not working either.

It is becoming obvious that liberals just don’t tolerate disagreement. They are unprepared for honest debate, unprepared to consider the merits of other opinions, and in general just want the opposition to shut up. What an odd turn of events, when liberals control the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives. The men who created the Constitution expected and wanted vigorous debate, and that has been our tradition. One must conclude that liberals are unprepared to honestly defend their ideas. Or defend their spending.

But then they don’t much like the Constitution either.
