TFerWannaBe: If the Tea Party ever stood for small government and fiscal responsibility, it does no longer. The movement was hijacked by social conservatives, racists, and morons years ago.


I agree with the following assessment...

keylock71: F*ck these Teabaggers... They've been regressive, radical social conservatives from the beginning. Anyone who thinks otherwise is being willfully ignorant.


From the very start, the Tea Party has been a radical socially conservative movement. To argue otherwise is sheer ignorance. These patriots didn't give a flying pygmy fark about taxes or big government until January 20th, 2009. That's just their excuse for their reactionary butthurt to the ni-bong in power.

Hell, their stupid farking name alone outs them as the hypocritical, mouth-breathing troglodytes that they are. They're "Taxed Enough Already" at a time when a.) taxes are lower than ever and b.) they willingly vote to extend tax cuts for the uber-rich so that the budget can be balanced on their own backs. If that wasn't enough, their own bullshiat slogans out them for the morons that they are - "fix old no new?" "Keep government out of my Medicare?" For fark's sake.

Yes, the Tea Party is the putrid swan song of a generation on the outs but goddamn if they're not a wart in the ass of the Nation. They need to go the fark away.

rynthetyn: firefly212: rynthetyn: firefly212: RanDomino: How is the real story here not that there's another picture of a cop assaulting someone?

Because the one thing the TEA party rallies and OWS things taught us was that the cops will always try to physically bully people they think are weaker than them. More pink pistols need to show up at these things while open carrying... that "dont tread on me" crap works just as well for us as anyone.

I kind of like that idea. Don't let the hard right wingnuts be the only ones taking advantage of the Second Amendment.

I'm sad that trollolols left... I was sure looking forward to posting http://www.defendthefamily.com/pfrc/archives.php?id=2345952 Lively bragging about the passage of the Uganda murder bill as "our campaign was like a nuclear bomb against the "gay" agenda in Uganda. I pray that this, and the predictions, are true." I get the sense though that their heart really wasn't in trolling today, I mean defending him is like saying "but what about all the good things Hitler did?"

As indefensible as Scott Lively is, I have vague recollections of a bunch of the adults in the AFA circles I was around as a teenager passing around his Pink Swastika book as "proof" of how horrible the "gay agenda" really is. In retrospect, those people were incredibly batshiat, but it's crazy, at the time it didn't seem so strange because I just saw them as parents of friends and adults who my family knew from church.

It's weird looking back because that life seems so foreign to the life I live now that it's almost like I've lived two different lives. It makes telling who's a troll and who's serious difficult though, because that past life had people who were absolutely serious and saying things far more crazy than our little Scott Lively defending troll.


It's weird here, I live in Denver (relatively liberal) about thirty minutes north of the home of Focus on the Family... I've lived in NYC before, and I've lived in rural Oklahoma before. They tell me there's no hate like liberal hate, but from experience, I can't for the life of me remember liberals hanging nooses in front of the homes of conservatives they want to run out of town. I hear the FoF all the time, and I live in this enclave where people dismiss their idiocy out of hand, but I know that down in the Springs, they really do believe that, despite my boring job followed up by playing video games, that I am out to "recruit" their kids, destroy their marriages, and engage in intercourse with their pets... they are legitimately afraid of this thing that they think gays are... they're particularly afraid of bland, monogamous gays... we blend in too easily and they're convinced that one day I'm going to stop playing Civ or Arma just long enough to destroy all of society and force them to stop worshiping at their church. The crux of it is that it doesn't matter that the supposed "agenda" isn't true at all, they believe it with religious zeal, to the point that they dare not listen to the words of gays explaining that it isn't true because that just seems like putting poison in their mind. I mean, these people may even be well intentioned, but they're absolutely delusional... they think taxes are going up (for more than 95% of Americans, they are at historic lows), they think Obama has passed a raft of anti-gun legislation (the only legislation he signed allows people to carry firearms in national parks), they believe that a government so competent as to render the death penalty is too incompetent to help people pay for health insurance, they simultaneously cheer Romney demanding that mothers have the "dignity of work" and scream about a woman who criticized one who did not have that dignity... they are not logical, consistent, rational, or even grounded in reality... they are, by any rational metric, insane... and they vote.

And yet those are the people whose votes they have to get if the candidate she was campaigning for hopes to get elected in their community.


Aye, you'll have the freedom to do as we please, anything else is (scary word goes here).

The thing is, though the tide has turned recently in favor of equal rights for gays, most of us are not unfamiliar with this breed of douchebag. I've been jumped before for coming out of the wrong club, such is life. If I'd been jumped for being white (oddly enough also has happened), these idiots would be the first to cry out about inequity... but when it comes to beating me up for being gay, well that's just what God wants, so it should be legal. They rationalize their big-government side with Jesus doublespeak (as though the sermon on the mount mentioned gays), but ultimately, these people want to borrow more money from China so we can use the government to go after people they don't like. They don't hide it, they don't shy away from it... so I'm all too happy when they actually speak out about what they really believe.

So, the Tea Party is literally celebrating the career of a man whose advocacy has not just led to legislation that would make homosexuality punishable by death in Uganda, but has resulted in the targeted violence and murder of Ugandan gay activists.

This is far beyond any kind of mainstream conservatism, considering Scott Lively makes the Westboro Baptist Church look charming by comparison. Scott Lively's entire career is based on stirring up hate against gay people, and he frames his activities as a war between "terrorist" gays and Christians, including writing a revisionist history that claimed that gays were responsible for the Holocaust and Hitler was gay (it's popular in Eastern Europe, where Lively is involved with groups stirring up hatred, inciting violence and legislating against gay people. Anti-gay legislation and activism has been on the rise in Eastern Europe, including a recent law in St. Petersburg which bans the promotion of homosexuality. The first two people arrested under that law committed the crime of holding a sign that said "Homosexuality is normal".) This is what the SPLC has to say about Scott Lively's hate group:

"Abiding Truth Ministries serves mainly as a launching pad for an international anti-gay campaign. Its founder, Scott Lively, is also responsible for a book, widely cited by gay-bashers, accusing homosexuals of running the Nazi Party.

Lively first emerged as an anti-gay activist when he became communications director for the Oregon Citizens Alliance, which was backing that state's notorious Measure 9 vote in 1992. The measure, which failed, would have added language to the state constitution listing homosexuality, along with pedophilia and masochism, as "abnormal behavior." Lively later served as California director of the American Family Association, another particularly hard-line anti-gay group (see below).

Lively is best known for co-authoring, with Kevin Abrams, The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party. The book makes a series of claims that virtually no serious historian agrees with: that Hitler was gay, that "the Nazi Party was entirely controlled by militaristic homosexuals," and that gays were especially selected for the SS because of their innate brutality. The claims are entirely false; in fact, the Nazis murdered significant numbers of gays and made homosexuality a death penalty offense in 1942. In the foreword, Abrams adds that homosexuality is "primarily a predatory addiction striving to take the weak and unsuspecting down with it. ... They have no idea of how to act in the best interests of their country... . Their intention is to serve none but themselves."

Lively has taken his message abroad to Eastern Europe (see Watchmen on the Walls, below), Africa and Russia. In a 2007 open letter to the Russian people, he asserted that "homosexuality is a personality disorder that involves various, often dangerous sexual addictions and aggressive, anti-social impulses." In 2009, he went to Uganda to speak at a major conference on the evils of homosexuality, saying, among other things: "The gay movement is an evil institution. The goal of the gay movement is to defeat the marriage-based society and replace it with a culture of sexual promiscuity." He also met with Ugandan lawmakers. A month after Lively left the country, a bill was introduced that called for the death penalty for certain homosexual acts and prison for those who fail to disclose gays' identities.

In 2008, Lively started the Redemption Gate Mission Society, a church that seeks to "re-Christianize" the city of Springfield, Mass., where he lives."


But perhaps before the day is out the Tea Partiers can top this by burning a Koran or lynching some effigies of black people. You know, populism!

oh look, from 2004...

The White House is used to being attacked by Democrats, but it came as something of a shock when fellow Republicans broke ranks over growth in government spending, hurting Bush at a time when his job approval numbers were already falling.

Conservatives from the Cato Institute criticized the president for overseeing a nearly 25 percent surge in spending over the last three years -- the fastest pace since the Johnson administration of the mid-1960s.

The Santelli rant happened less than a month after Obama's inauguration. That spring the "tea party" movement caught fire. If you don't think allot of that momentum wasn't in response to the Obama presidency than your naive. As I said in an earlier post, many of the people at tea party rallies that spring were blaming Obama for Bush policies. As the movement grew, so did the number of people who were completely ignorant of the truth.

Then the movement was taken over by radical social conservatives. At that point it wasn't about economics, or freedom, or tax policy. The people who claim the tea party name today have nothing in common with 90% of the people who were there in 2008 and 2009.

Looking beyond punishment to infrastructure, defense etc, the same principle applies, which means not only that it is the government's job, but that it's the whole goddamn point of having a government.

TFerWannaBe: If the Tea Party ever stood for small government and fiscal responsibility, it does no longer. The movement was hijacked by social conservatives, racists, and morons years ago.


THIS!

I went to a couple events in the very beginning, and we had a good mix of libertarians, fiscal conservatives, and even a few democrats that leaned to the right fiscally. It was great, people were generally friendly and we were able to discuss different ideas with respect. You could take your kids, there was more of a party feel. Sure they're were a few idiots, but they were in the minority. And anyone who got out of line was chastised by the crowd. Hell, even the far left counter protestors were treated well. And the few cops who were there were obviously relaxed and chatting with people in the crowd.

Then the social conservative took over. The damn posters with aborted fetuses started showing up. The speakers went from a fairly wide range of people and positions to only ultra conservative. And instead of being welcomed, opposing ideas are shunned. The friendly party like atmosphere is gone; replaced with a strong undertone of anger, and hate. Our local group is now consists of ultra social conservatives, those who whisper about violence to shut down abortion clinics. Those who see socialism and communists around every corner, and those who think conservative republicans are really liberals. In short, the group that has hijacked the tea-party label is a bunch of radical, racist, nut jobs.

Of course that's my experience in my neck of the woods. Different areas may have been, or may be completely different.

It's weird here, I live in Denver (relatively liberal) about thirty minutes north of the home of Focus on the Family... I've lived in NYC before, and I've lived in rural Oklahoma before. They tell me there's no hate like liberal hate, but from experience, I can't for the life of me remember liberals hanging nooses in front of the homes of conservatives they want to run out of town. I hear the FoF all the time, and I live in this enclave where people dismiss their idiocy out of hand, but I know that down in the Springs, they really do believe that, despite my boring job followed up by playing video games, that I am out to "recruit" their kids, destroy their marriages, and engage in intercourse with their pets... they are legitimately afraid of this thing that they think gays are... they're particularly afraid of bland, monogamous gays... we blend in too easily and they're convinced that one day I'm going to stop playing Civ or Arma just long enough to destroy all of society and force them to stop worshiping at their church. The crux of it is that it doesn't matter that the supposed "agenda" isn't true at all, they believe it with religious zeal, to the point that they dare not listen to the words of gays explaining that it isn't true because that just seems like putting poison in their mind. I mean, these people may even be well intentioned, but they're absolutely delusional... they think taxes are going up (for more than 95% of Americans, they are at historic lows), they think Obama has passed a raft of anti-gun legislation (the only legislation he signed allows people to carry firearms in national parks), they believe that a government so competent as to render the death penalty is too incompetent to help people pay for health insurance, they simultaneously cheer Romney demanding that mothers have the "dignity of work" and scream about a woman who criticized one who did not have that dignity... they are not logical, consistent, rational, or even grounded in reality... they are, by any rational metric, insane... and they vote.


I grew up on the gulf coast of Florida in an area that has a weird mix of liberal progressive artsy types intermingling right alongside very backwards fundamentalists. I suppose I can see why normal boring gays are the fundamentalists worst enemy because in the environment I grew up in, on one hand I was hearing all sorts of ridiculously batshiat insane anti-gay rhetoric, but then on the other hand I got a job working in retail to pay for college and ended up with a bunch of boring gay coworkers who weren't slutting it up nearly as much as my straight coworkers were, which made it obvious that the scary stuff about recruiting and "the gay lifestyle" and all that jazz were a bunch of BS.

There's always been that vein of crazy within the Republican party, but it seems like since Obama got elected all hell has broken loose and all of the ridiculousness has taken center stage. They're so afraid of socialism and totalitarianism and any sort of control, but at the same time completely oblivious to the fact that they're the ones who are advocating precisely those things that they're afraid of.

Though, on the other hand, I suspect that I represent everything that they're afraid is going to happen. I was the good homeschooler who volunteered to work on Republican campaigns and was supposed to be the next generation of conservative leader. I was a poster child for the movement, parents would tell their kids to be more like me. But then I grew up, realized that their policies didn't align with what I believed about social justice, figured out that their economic logic made no sense, realized that their anti-gay rhetoric was bull and then figured out that I'm gay, and now I'm apparently a commie liberal radical gay activist trying to advance the homosexual agenda. I'm why they want to keep their kids completely sheltered from the world, I'm proof that even homeschooling and a Christian college education isn't enough to keep a kid on the straight and narrow when they become an adult.

If we are to take them at their word, that it's all about taxes, then why do they advocate so many costly laws for social engineering? Is it somehow better to borrow money from China for imprisoning marijuana users and gays than it would be to use that money to pay for healthcare... I mean, for every time they advocate a cut in spending, they also demand either status quo or increases elsewhere... I understand the desire to maintain a military capable of defending the US, but would we really be in danger if we only accounted for half of global spending on military forces? It seems like every time we talk about cutting HUD or HHS, it gets carried along with a demand to have more government involvement in medical decisionmaking (but only in the way Jesus would want) or coughing up more money to bomb Iran (I'm not totally clear on what problem they think that would fix). The crux of my feelings towards the TEA party isn't just that taxes are at historic lows, but that they don't seem to be actually working to cut spending at all (a necessary component of reducing taxes). The more they cry about what the issues are about and how they aren't just a bigoted hate group, they don't address the issues, but do take the time to honor yet more bigots. If you're a conservative, in the Goldwater sense, or maybe even in the Reagan sense, I could kind of understand where you were coming from... but these people have no noble ideals, they have nothing but a thin veneer of ideals to feebly mask their hate and idiocy.

Ummm no. He didn't. That's a slur. Learn what he advocated and you will see that the Ugandans added the death penalty without him. They are kinda dickish that way. Lively opposes all legislation that calls for the death penalty for being gay.

See, that's the thing... he didn't stop advocating it after they added the death penalty... he says "gosh, I wouldn't advocate the death penalty, I just wanted them to rot in jails" but he didn't stop championing the legislation as it was pending, even after the death penalty was added. He was so opposed to it that he continued to push for it.

NPR interview while legislation was pending says differently. You can rewrite history but it doesn't make it so.

/BTW, read all the way to bottom where he calls you a racist.


The problem with your link was that I clicked it. The interview doesn't say differently, Lively says differently... the problem with what Lively says is that it is not consistent with the facts. Your "evidence" of Lively's uninvolvement is an interview in which he claims so. The problem is, Lively wasn't just there for the conference and "disappointed that the legislation was so harsh" (his words, not mine), he returned not once, not twice, not even three times, but four times in the following two months to advocate for the bill. The bigger problem for his description of how the conference was a total side-swipe and he was there to talk about helping gay people be straight is that some idiot recorded the seminars. (new window) Now I know, your next line is going to be about how he didn't really mean all that hateful crap he was spewing, he was just playing to the audience... I don't give a shiat, he gave his time, and his money, to further the passage of a bill calling for the murder of homosexuals. You can juggle all you f$#king want, but the guy goes around the country spewing his venomous and vitriolic evil in the name of Christ, so I'm just going to have to take him at his word that he believes "gays are an abomination and an affront to the Lord and Leviticus tells us how to deal with them." You can read that into bunnies and sunshine for all I care, but the TEA party could just as easily substitute a klansman for all I care... this idiot, and those who honor him, all want tyranny and death over those they hate, in the name of Jesus (peace be upon him).

serial_crusher: If homosexuality and taxes don't have anything to do with each other, why did the gay group feel the need to interrupt the tea party's tax related protest?


From TFA:

The comment reportedly came while police were being dispatched to break up the counter-demonstration against, among other things, the presence and honoring of anti-gay activist Scott Lively at the event.

BTW, this is a guy who apparently issued a call in Uganda to fight against a "genocidal" and "pedophilic" gay movement, "which he likened to the Nazis and Rwandan murderers." (new window)

They were having a tax-related protest until a bunch of gay assholes showed up and started interrupting.

Two groups of assholes acting like assholes to each other. Nothing new.

I agree with you that a group should be able to have a rally without getting shouted down by the opposition. Yeah, protesting in part of free speech, but while I disagree with the Tea Party, they have as much of a right to hold an unmolested rally as pro-gay marriage advocates.


Part of free expression is the exchange of ideas and the consequences of expressing ideas. Yes the Nazi's could march on Skoke, but they had no right to not be counter-protested. Same thing with these clowns. They have no right to hold an 'unmolested' rally. None whatsoever. And no one does.

Their little tea party event was honoring Scott Lively, the guy who pretty much single-handedly managed to convince Uganda that a kill-the-gays bill would be a good idea.

Bears repeating.

Don't worry, I've been promised for over a year that 0bama is so hated, he's going to get primaried.

Any day now.

violentsalvation: By calling gay folks "f*ggots" you have ensured that I will not listen to what you have to say. So yes, person by person, one pair of ears at a time, you are silencing yourself.


Seriously, the only people I ever hear refer to "fags" or "faggots" are gay dudes riffing on each other.

I imagine after this guy let loose with his little tirade one gay dude in the audience rolled his eyes and purred to his buddy, "My God, will you get a load of her."

On the contrary, I'd like to see them stay in the way
