On behalf of the USA I humbly apologize.

Hey man, I voted for Kodos. Or Kang. Whatever. I definitely did not vote for the likes of them.

Please rest lightly knowing that the slight majority of Americans don't support this sort of bullsh*t, either, even if if it is our chief export.

We've already had a tea party in the 90s. They were called One Nation. Since we have a preferential voting system, neither major party felt the need to bring them on board, and One Nation pretty much died after a few years.

This new groups seems to be more about providing campaign contributions to politicians based on social issues. I can't see how it will make wealthy people wealthier, so I suspect it won't last all that long either.

Talk about exporting pollution.

I believe the way it makes wealthy people wealthier is that it gives their propagandists a tool to exploit bigotry and fear to manipulate susceptible people, mainly the authoritarian submissive types, a huge portion of the human race, into doing their bidding and voting their sock puppet candidates into office. The PDBs (Poor Dumb Bastards) think they are promoting God, Country, and Family, when they are really promoting the rich. The silly-assed "Tea Party" may not last long, but the process goes on forever. The only safeguard against being wholly-owned by the 1% is what we call over here "eternal vigilance", a thing which is lagging lately.

In regards to the American version, I too anticipate that it's doomed. But holy sh*t did we open a Pandora's box with this nonsense. However, the people have spoken. They're not interested in entrusting a nascent party that thrives on emotive bullsh*t, particularly after they once tried to hijack our credit and are threatening to do it once more, in some last grasp at relevancy.

The Tea Party will dead in two years. Book it. Done.

Don't blame us. These are elements within your own society doing this.

gay marriage could lead to Muslim polygamy.

It's almost worth looking just to see how that connection is made. Because I know Muslim love them some gays. If love means stone.

They don't have much in the way of Mormons, so Arab Harams is their go-to example of polygamy. Ignorance and Bigotry combine to shorten Arab into Muslim.

"Professor Flint said CANdo wants a referendum on gay marriage and defended Senator Bernardi over recent comments suggesting it might lead to bestiality."

Wow. Just...wow.

But now I can hear in my head the 'bah-chika-wow-wow' music with a background of horse neighs and sheep bleating.

Yet another similarity to the American Teabagger.

I stopped reading after

CANdo, a group created by Liberal firebrand Cory Bernardi and loosely modelled on the right-wing faction of the US Republican Party, also claims gay marriage could lead to Muslim polygamy.

CANdo is run by chairman David Flint, former Australian Broadcasting Authority chair and leading monarchist, and Jai Martinkovits, who also runs Australians for a Constitutional Monarchy.

It kind of sounds like you have some weird political creatures regardless of the Tea Party..

The Liberal party is the Conservative party, it takes it's name from economic liberalism.

The Labor party is the Liberal party.

It's like America farted and some folks in Australia decided that they liked the smell.

Noted monarchists throwing a Tea Party. I can only assume it is the kind with a dormouse.
 
2012-12-15 09:03:11 AM
Just a heads up - our Conservative party is bizarrely called the Liberal Party as they were founded to support economic liberalism (ie free market and deregulation) rather than social liberalism. They're socially conservative and (mostly) support the monarchy. It can be confusing to foreigners.

And I don't see this Aussie tea party gaining much traction in Australia. Government isn't such a dirty word over here.
 
2012-12-15 09:04:02 AM
Can we please outsource our teabaggers to koala land? Yours don't sound COMPLETELY retarded, and thus probably need some up training by pro status power chair 'baggers.

Don't worry, we promise we'll take them back when they are done.

/crosses fingers

As much as I sometimes think middle school kids deserve a daily ass-whuppin', corporal punishment probably isn't an idea that would get much traction around here.

The core problem is immigration and integration - Indians seeking new lives.

Not sure what this has to do with the tea party, modern or historic.

This is good, because liberal destruction of individual rights is a global issue and not limited to America.

Majick Thise: On behalf of the USA I humbly apologize.


Seconded. Australia gives the US so much. Hot women with amazing accents (who incidentily are very nice towards visiting US troops). The first two Mad Max films. A great vacation spot. A consistent source of Cracked.com articles on how everthing in your land can kill you. A solid ally in international affairs.

And what have you gotten in return? Homophobic, racist teabaggers and an anti-semitic Mel Gibson.

Let's all be honest here. Their men are at least twice as attractive as their women, and that's why we love them. Where else would we get imported lifeguards?

shastacola: It kind of sounds like you have some weird political creatures regardless of the Tea Party..


Our two primary parties are the right-wing liberals, who don't own a dictionary, and the center-right labor, who don't know how to spell.
 
2012-12-15 09:50:31 AM
I don't see why this should make any Aussies worried. As I remember it, it was the Tea Party who's influence probably caused the Republicans to lose the General Election and lose seats in both the Senate and the House. I'm not sure how Tea Party influence affected local races but on a National Level they failed.

Ah. In short, they started more akin to US "libertarians", but with added social conventionalism. The former suggests a high-SDO component, the latter a high-RWA component. The desire to emulate the Tea Party makes sense.

Dear Austrailia,

As America is learning, the solution to the tea party is to simply not vote them into office and when they get into office, vote them out.
