Walter Paisley: Cythraul: Liberty, AND Freedom? That organization just wants it all, doesn't it?

The redundancy in the group's name is funny, but I still wonder about the context in which Tea Party groups are using words like liberty and freedom when they support such authoritarian policies. Liberty for people who think like us, but not for outsiders? Or perhaps fundie Christian jargon, as in freedom from the bondage of sin? Sadly, I think it's more likely that they take the nuttier ends of right-wing media at face value and just lack self-awareness or the ability to detect irony.


It's nothing new for rightists: We have not tried to suppress true, legitimate liberty; on the contrary, we have tried to preserve it. We are for liberty, but liberty with order, the kind of liberty which will not threaten the basic principles of our nation, nor threaten its faith and unity. -  Francisco Franco

gilgigamesh: cman: KKK working to destroy the enemies of Israel?

What kind of world do we live in?

Yeah I may not be up on my Klanism, but I thought those guys hated Jews worse than blacks. That blacks were pawns of international Jewry's plan to destroy the white man. Or something.


But without Israel the One True White Jesus can't return through the inter-dimensional portal to cleanse the Earth of the inferior races

/or some such bullsh*t

Redundant. A tie to one is a tie to both. He is a mainstream Republican, after all.

gilgigamesh: No, you guys are thinking of Evangelicals. I am pretty sure the Klan hates Jews along the same lines as the Nazis. Or at least they used to. The Klan ain't what it used to be.


Plus, he recruited from synagogues: "In April 2012, authorities were notified that Crawford had gone to an Albany-area synagogue and and contacted a local Jewish organizations 'seeking out individuals who might offer assistance in helping him with a type of technology that could be used against people he perceived as enemies of Israel' and the United States. He called these perceived enemies and Muslims 'medical waste' and 'scumbags'."

The enemy of their enemy is...?

Gee, I hope this doesn't jeopardize their 501(c)(4) status.  Clearly the Tea Party is doing important social welfare work here.

Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: I believe the thinking is that Israel needs to be restored so that the Jews can return there, bringing about Christ's return so that he can kill them in the apocalypse.

IT'S IN THE BOOK OF REVELATIONS PEOPLE!

The head of the "Americans Demanding Liberty and Freedom," conspired to build a device that he would use to take the life of people with the wrong religious believes...

If Authoritarians are one thing, it's "glaring hypocrites."
