This is a rather gleeful Pink Flamingo I TOLD YOU SO!
“…The movement, that came to be officially recognized almost a year ago but whose roots go back further than that, has been snuffed out and replaced in the public mind. The movement that began as a people’s movement of angry independent, libertarians and conservatives will now be thought as the movement of people like Palin, Dick Armey, Judson Phillips, Mark Skoda, etc. Essentially, a wholly owned subsidiary of the “Official Conservative Movement” and the Republican Party.
This new tea party bears no resemblance to the one that began a year ago as a reaction to the collapse of our financial system and the subsequent bailout. That movement of ragtag and unorganized libertarians, independents and conservatives was something new and unique. An authentic protest movement angered not just by the new President, Barack Obama, who had presided over the bailouts but the president who started the ball rolling and whose incompetence had led to the crisis in the first place, George W. Bush….”
The Pink Flamingo has been telling you – for ages, that the Tea Party Freaks are NOT Republican. They are a bunch of Losertarian losers pretending to be conservatives and trying to make trouble. One of the alleged founders of this alleged movement is allegedly ticked with Sarah Palin for stealing his precious little LIBERTARIAN movement out from under the self-righteous feet of the little losertarians.
In an op-ed in the Nashville Post today by Adam Kleinhelder, all the little tea partiers came home to roost!
NOT ABOUT NATIONAL SECURITY
The Pink Flamingo has been trying to war all the nice little Republicans who think there is something good about LOSERTARIANS that they don’t give a damn about national security. They are a sniveling bunch of cowards who would willingly sell our country out in order to have legalized drugs. (okay, it’s an exaggeration)
“….In her remarks, Palin praised the Senator from Arizona and chastised the current President for blaming the past one for his problems. Now, I don’t know every tea partier out there but I do know a few and I don’t remember any of them having a whole lot of good to say about President Bush or John McCain. While they don’t have much positive to say about Barack Obama there no love for George Bush either.
And when did the tea party movement get a foreign policy? I didn’t put a clock on it but the first portion of Palin’s speech seemed very heavy on the neoconservatism….”….Palin talked about standing up to Iran, defending Israel and making the world safe for Democracy. All noble goals, I suppose, but what was she doing justifying and perpetuating the foreign policy of George Bush at a tea party convention?
The tea party I’m familiar with was concerned more about the collusion of big business and big government than the War in Iraq. The tea party I’m familiar with was more concerned about rejecting the bailout of Wall Street while looking for ways reinvigorate the economy of Main Street than looking for Al-Qaeda. The tea party I’m familiar with seemed more concerned about restoring the Republic at home than Democracy abroad….”
You want revealing?
If you pretend to be a patriot and love your country,
THROWING REAGAN UNDER THE BUS
Tea Party Losertarians don’t care about Reagan. They can’t. Reagan loved his country. Tea Party Losertarians are all about themselves, their agenda, their opinions, and getting their own little childish way. To prove how pathetic foolish these people are heck the last line…”Ronald Reagan is the past…”. The fool who doesn’t know history is doomed to repeat it. These people are fools!
“…Ronald Reagan, national defense and superficial deficiencies of the current democratic occupant of the White House. Wow. In all honesty, the speech could have just as easily been given in 1994 as in 2010 which, of course, was the last time Republican operatives and professional conservatives sought to exploit an authentic populist movement of the center-right.
Ronald Reagan? Are you serious? Three times the name was invoked during the speech. Sure, it was his birthday but it serves to remind us what kind of crowd this was in front of those C-Span cameras.
These weren’t the people who were out protesting. This weren’t regular folks. This was the same old network of conservative hacks, flacks, publicists and hangers-on. This was Conservative Inc.
Ronald Reagan has nothing to do with the tea party movement. Nothing. Ronald Reagan is the past. The GOP’s past, no less. The tea party movement was supposed to be the future.…”
