Reason #199,999 Why I Detest True Believers – They Have No Manners


If one does not have manners and civility one is little more than an animal, wallowing in the mud.   It has also finally dawned on me why the far right and tea party types have declared war on the “elites” and “country club conservatives”.  It is because the former are so insignificant, so ill-bred, pathetic little socially deprived cretins they don’t know how to act around their social betters.  Until you finally learn how to behave and what fork to use, along with now sprawling on the table, removing your hat, and not double dipping your chips, you are nothing – absolutely nothing. You are what I call T – R – A – S – H.

The Pink Flamingo is a Barbara Bush fan.  I have been for years, and continue to be.  To see what the far right tea party conservatives are saying about her is disgusting. They have gone too far.  I’m embarrassed for them.

Dan Riehl is way over the top on this one.  Evidently he  has given in to Palin Worship to the point where no one but she and her slobbering supporters have a right to express themselves.  They can be as vile and nasty as they wish, but no one dares to say what they think about SP.  If they do, they are trashed.

YOU DO NOT TRASH A FORMER FIRST LADY.  It is not done. I don’t care who she is, what party she is, or what she says.  When someone like Dan Riehl does what he did trashing Barbara Bush, he shows just how a small, insignificant, ill-bred, poorly mannered,  pimple he is.  Then again, he is now a conservative “leader” given priority status because he signed that idiotic letter Richard Viguerie pimped to Mitch McConnell.

I just love tea party “patriots”.  The only ones who are allowed to express themselves with complete freedom and not be denigrated and publicly trashed are they themselves, the chosen.

One comment on his blog:

Riehl World View

I love the tea party “patriots”.  They talk a good game about our Founding Fathers.  Try this.  It was written by the Father of Our Country.  Looks to me like the tea party types wouldn’t have the proper manners or behavior if they were to go back in time to our founding.

This is the nasty, ill mannered dribble that pimple Dan Riehl wrote:

Riehl World View

One of the problems with our society is the lack of manners we now have.  I don’t even think the average person knows what manners are.

“…In sociology, manners are the unenforced standards of conduct which demonstrate that a person is proper, polite, and refined. They are like laws in that they codify or set a standard for human behavior, but they are unlike laws in that there is no formal system for punishing transgressions, other than social disapproval. They are a kind of norm. What is considered “mannerly” is highly susceptible to change with time, geographical location, social stratum, occasion, and other factors. That manners matter is evidenced by the fact that large books have been written on the subject, advice columns frequently deal with questions of mannerly behavior, and that schools have existed for the sole purpose of teaching manners. A lady is a term frequently used for a woman who follows proper manners; the term gentleman is used as a male counterpart; though these terms are also often used for members of a particular social class….”

To The Pink Flamingo this is NOT about Sarah Palin.  This is about conservatives who have become so arrogant, so out of control, and so full of themselves that they think they no longer need to follow what is considered right and proper.  They are contributing to the degradation and breakdown of society.

When someone trashes Barbara Bush the way Dan Riehl has done, I will bet my toy poodle that he and his minions who also trash her have absolutely no table manners.  I would suspect they live in jeans, t-shirts, and tennis shoes.  I also suspect they do not know how to dress, what fork to use, or when to write a bread & butter note.

If you think the above paragraph is shallow and you don’t need manners for social discourse, then you are part of the problem and have none. If you are a tea party patriot who worships the Founding Fathers, I suggest you familiarize yourself with a man named George Washington.  If you really want to know how he acted, he was one on of the finest mannered gentlemen in the new nation.  He was a stickler for proper manners.   He even wrote a book about it.

Yes, I’m mad.  I am sick and tired of people who don’t know how to act or behave act like they are all the thing.  It suddenly dawned on me why they are now so busy slamming the so called “elites” and damning the country club types.  It is because they are so pathetically ill-bred and lacking in common social graces that they are extremely uncomfortable around their social betters.  Ergo they must damn them.  They did the same thing in France, once upon a time.

I bet your table manners are repulsive.

  1. AWESOME! A lot of truth in this. Cannot believe they are trashing Barbara Bush now who has more class in her little finger than a lot of these people have in their whole body. First thing they do when they don’t like something you say is trash you on some of the sites. There have been times I have tried to figure out what they are saying because their grammar leaves a lot to be desired. Makes you wonder where they went to school.

    One of the most elitist comments I have seen in this election cycle comes from the Tea Party Patriot spokesman who went after Claremore Institute for daring to have a long standing Orientation on the weekend she wanted to have one for the incoming Freshman Congressman. Her answer to Claremore was to send out private cell phone numbers and email accounts to their people to harrass the new members. Now that is zero class.

    Add the Tea Party Express that dissed the native Alaskans for Joe Miller and you have a group of arrogant people who have been built up to believe they are better than those of us who have been involved in campaigns for years. We can thank Fox News for most of that along with some of the daytime radio pundits.

  2. well….
    I think ‘true believers’ is a bit of a stretch (unless you are talking about the Religion of Tea and not Christianity). But you have to excuse (or at least understand) their ungodly idolatrous behavior.

    How else do you expect unconverted people to act other than like unconverted unsaved people? And how do unconverted people act? They act like Glenn Beck! They act like Tea People! And they form ‘spiritual alliances’ with other like minded unconverted unsaved Pagans.

    If you look up the following verses:
    Romans 13:1; 1 Timothy 2:1-3; Titus 3:1-2; 1 Peter 2:12-17
    you will see the what the Christian’s Responsibility to Government is and how we as Christians are to react to our Government (even when we are not pleased).

    Most of the permanently malcontent Tea People violated these important biblical principles in the way they reacted to George W. Bush (with lies, slander and hatred) and you can bet that they did the same when Bill Clinton was in office.

    They hated Clinton, then Bush, and the RINO’s, and now they hate Obama and anyone that doesn’t agree or stands in their way to achieving ultimate POWER!

    But how else would you expect unconverted unsaved people to act?

  3. What a fascinating take. A person can be a “true believer” about anything. I do find fanatics to be very annoying.

    You are stating exactly what I have said, repeatedly about the tea partiers. They are ignoring what we are told as Christians. With apologies (not) to Jim DeMint, I do not see how a person can be a tea partier and profess to actually believe much of anything in the New Testament.


  4. I got into the mix over at Dan’s place… I’d just finally had enough of the Palin Family carpet bombing. Had to crawl out from the rubble and breathe a little! I think Palin’s biggest problem is her fans… do they not see how much they remind us of O-bots?

    I loved Barbara’s remark… very sassy, with one pinkie claw poking out.

    You realize we are all participating in Sarah’s game right now… grrrrr.

  5. The Tea People should all be locked in a room and forced to listen to Dr. John MacArthur’s 4 sermons on “The Christian’s Responsibility to Government”, and the 2 sermons on “The Christian’s Responsibility in a Pagan Society”.

    Dr. Phil Johnson’s sermon on his conversion from being a Rabid Right Winger to becoming a Christian is great too. I think it’s called “Politically Correct” and it’s the one where he says he avoids Politics as if it is Pornography!

    I can honestly say that once I heard that I was cured.
