Tea Party “Patriots” & Conservatives Throw Ronald Reagan Under the Bus to Censor Lindsey

Tea Party “Patriots” & Conservatives Throw Ronald Reagan Under the Bus to Censor Lindsey
November 13, 2009
Share

NOTE: If The Pink Flamingo were still living in SC and involved in SC GOP politics, I would be advocating immediate and swift retaliatory action against the Charleston County GOP. The reprehensible actions against Lindsey are one reason. Most importantly is their endorsement of the Tea Party Patriot?s who are in the process of calling the shots in Charleston County.

“…A local group of conservatives from the Tea Party Organization, 9.12 and members of the Charleston GOP met and interviewed candidates for local races. They have made the following recommendations for local offices which we support. These candidates have been identified as conservative candidates for these local non-partisan elections. We are asking your support of these individuals through volunteer efforts or cash donations. Please pick one and help them get elected…”

The Tea Party people have submitted a list of acceptable local Tea Party people who are “pure” enough to be endorsed by the county Executive Committee for local offices. In other words, the Charleston County GOP is being run by Glenn Beck’s 912 group of “patriots” and not by actual Republican values. This is reprehensible. The SCGOP should demand the resignation of all local officers involved in this fiasco. The problem is, right now, Republicans are quaking in their boots because Glenn Beck is now the most powerful man in the GOP.

How dare these people censure Lindsey. It is not about “patriotism” but the revenge of Ron Paul Bots and Glenn Beck’s little minions.

“…”When I began entering into the give and take …, a lot of the most radical conservatives who had supported me during the election didn’t like it. “Compromise” was a dirty word to them and they wouldn’t face the fact that we couldn’t get all of what we wanted today. They wanted all or nothing and they wanted it all at once. If you don’t get it all, some said, don’t take anything. “I’d learned while negotiating union contracts that you seldom got everything you asked for. And I agreed with FDR, who said in 1933: ‘I have no expectations of making a hit every time I come to bat. What I seek is the highest possible batting average.’ “If you got seventy-five or eighty percent of what you were asking for, I say, you take it and fight for the rest later, and that’s what I told these radical conservatives who never got used to it….”
