The other night, The Pink Flamingo was watching one of the great American classics, To Kill a Mockingbird. For those ignorant wretches who have not seen the movie nor read the classic book, you have my pity. Atticus Finch (played by the late, great Gregory Peck) was the ultimate Southern attorney living in a small town. He understood that all men and women are equal, no matter what their color, nor their what was in their pocketbook.
When the haters could not crush Atticus Finch for going against their demands by defending a Black man innocent of the rape charges filed against him by a white trash woman, they tried to kill his children. There’s not much difference between the man who tried to kill the children of Atticus Finch and the tea party “patriots” who try killing the reputations and careers of good and honorable men and women who absolutely refuse to bend to their will.
The Pink Flamingo is terrified of extremes. I see the growing extremism and irrational behavior of the tea parties as just that. It did not start out this way, but it is getting there. The very real problem is the fact that the people involved in the tea parties are failing to weigh the biased information they are receiving from their tin-plated gods like Glenn Beck.
If something is not done to put some of these people in check, and explain the facts of life to them, via American history, we are in for a very terrifying ride, abjectly terrifying. How long will it be before some idiotic tea party twit who is seriously unstable does something like what happened in India over the weekend?
Perhaps it is time for we the normal Republicans of the United States to demand the Tea Party “patriots” quit harassing and lying about our good elected Republican officials. Maybe they need to apologize to US!
NOTE TO LINDSEY: Don’t you dare give into the irrational and dictatorial spoiled demands of the tea party “patriots” who obviously don’t remember that there is such a thing as freedom of speech in this country. They want to promote the Constitution, but get rid of all those pesky amendments that annoy them.
“…I’ve always said I was a Reagan-style conservative. But I don’t think Reagan was a real Republican. He just maintained some shared values….” Glenn Beck
Losertarians are crowing about the nomination of Nikki Haley in South Carolina. She is one of them. They love her. Makes sense. Then there is the idiocy in Idaho, where the Losertarians have taken over the GOP. They’re scary, demanding a repeal of the 17th Amendment.
Are the Tea Parties an off-shoot of the John Birch Society?
One thing you gotta love about liberals is their way to out-manouver the right every time. During a long weekend when we need to be going after Obama, they decided to offer up Lindsey for the far right to crucify with their usual far right class. Few conservatives have the courage to admit that Lindsey is right. But then again, the whole idea is to spend the weekend beating up on Lindsey Graham rather than Barack Obama.
NOTE: The Pink Flamingo must have the blasted book ready to send to her publisher first thing this morning. I don’t have time for a full post, so I’ve put a few things together. Tomorrow things will greatly improve. The clip art is on purpose.
If the Tea Party twits do not behave themselves they are going to make a mess of things this November.
“…So, if November comes and Tea Party candidate after Purist candidate goes down to defeat and very vulnerable Democrats (cough…Harry Reid…cough) continue to serve in office, then those of us within the party who are not Tea Partiers or Purists need to put our foot down and take a stand. No more accommodating, no more coddling, no more trying to incorporate people who don’t want to be incorporated. If the Tea Party/Purist wing of the Party doesn’t want to be team players, then they have got to go. …”
One of The Pink Flamingo’s favorite movie lines is uttered by the late, immortal David Niven. “I shall yell tripe whenever tripe is served!” It comes from the adorable classic Please Don’t Eat the Daisies, based on writer Jean Kerr’s inspirational book by the same title. I say “inspirational” because it is one of those books that helped to inspire The Pink Flamingo to become a writer. In it, the author mentions the reason she became a writer was because writing was the only career where a person could sleep late on a regular basis! Bingo – career path chosen.
One of the things that amazes me the most is the tea party “patriot” and their desire to nominate and vote for men and women who have either no political experience, or no real world experience, or are abject idiots and frauds. Take the State of Florida, please. Have you heard about the tea party tempest there?
