Tea Party Now ‘the Real Enemy’?

Posted on | August 23, 2011 | 13 Comments

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) took her Summer Demagoguery Road Show to Florida:

The real enemy is the Tea Party –- let’s remember that,” said Rep. Frederica Wilson of Miami Gardens, host of the meeting and jobs fair. “The Tea Party holds Congress hostage … They have one goal in mind, and that’s to make President Obama a one-term president.” …
[Waters] also said: “We have to stand up and fight. It’s fight time … We’re not afraid of the tea party … In this struggle, we have to define who we are, what the president is doing and not let our voices be overshadowed by the tea party.”

(Hat-tip: Tina Korbe at Hot Air.) Obviously the Democrats have coordinated their talking points, as the Wilson/Waters rhetoric is an echo of Elijah Cummings’s aggressive scapegoating.

    Nooooo, silly! The real enemy is wee lord brakabama because he campaigns against republicans. He’s supposed to support them the way the slobbering dipshit named Maxine Waters supports them. It’s called getting along and all that jazz. Civility.

    I have to believe that the tactic of direct attack on the Tea Party is being tested now to see if it will be useful for next year. If it can gain any traction in polling, look for Little Debbie and other Attack Dogs (do you miss the Weiner?) to step up the pressure.

    It won’t work, but they have to try. They are beginning to show signs of desperation and fear already.

    Hasn’t the Congressional Black Caucus already described the Tea Party as an “almost exclusively white” organization?

    In what context should we consider these new statements?

    I always wondered how if there is no such organization as the Tea Party, then how can there be rules to keep anyone out?  (The ‘Tea Party’ is a state of mind.)

    I for one hold being considered Maxine Waters’ enemy a badge of honor….

    The genuine stupidity (I’d love to be a little more civil but no other word fits) is beyond comprehension.  And the silence from our media betters is deafening.  I wonder if David Gregory is going to be asking any of the party leaders whether or not he thinks these folks should “tone it down”.  These people debase themselves.

    You have to see the speech Marco Rubio gave at The Reagan Library – but more importantly, his answer to the question about the Tea Party. 

    He nails it – clear and pure – and his answer needs to be heard in every corner of this land.

    Don’t dare miss Frederica’s appearance on CNN!  Not only did she blame racism for black unemployment, she made a special trip to Mama Midnight’s Second-hand Costume Shop to get all gussied up for the occasion.

    “I have to believe that the tactic of direct attack on the Tea Party is being tested now to see if it will be useful for next year.” Excellent observation.

    This video is kinda old, from 2009, but it tells you everything you need to know about Maxine Waters.

    Its not a test…its preparation.
    The Kommiecrats are conditioning their mobs (union, black swarms etc) to attack TP rallies.
    Palin may have set the antidote with the Freedom Riders. Imagine a swarm confronted by 1K leather clad bikers!
