Angry White Men - Are You a Domestic Extremist?

By Jack Kinsella

Are you angry at the fact that the government took on average, $7000 of your tax money and gave it to the banks?

Are you angry because more than half of Americans (52%) pay no federal taxes but get a 'refund' (Earned Income Credit) funded by the 48% of Americans who do pay federal taxes?

Are you angry because the federal government has done so little to secure the southern borders that local Texas law enforcement is calling on citizens to arm and defend themselves?

Are you angry at the way the Congress is ignoring the majority will of the voters?    Are you angry because the government is stealing from the next generation to buy off this one?

Are you sympathetic to the Tea Party?  Are you white?

Then the only difference between you and Timothy McVeigh is that he already blew up a building to express his anger.

You haven't yet, but you probably will.  Bill Clinton said so.

Speaking at an event sponsored by Center for American Progress Action Fund, the former president drew a parallel between the terrorist nuts who blew up the Alfred P Murrah Building in Oklahoma City in 1995 and the Tea Party movement.

"What we learned from Oklahoma City is not that we should gag each other or that we should reduce our passion for the positions we hold - but that the words we use really do matter, because there's this vast echo chamber, and they go across space and they fall on the serious and the delirious alike. They fall on the connected and the unhinged alike."

So if you went to one of the thousands of Tea Party rallies held across the country on April 15th, you are too passionate about the position you hold -- then you are either "serious" (presumably the 49% who approve of the job Obama is doing) or you are "delirious" (the 46% that disapprove).

You are either numbered among "the connected" who support the socialist transformation of America,, or among the "unhinged" that disapprove.

If you disapprove of the way the health care bill was rammed through in a procedure in which only the opposition was bi-partisan,  then you're probably off your medication, according to the former prez, (who sounded like he was off his).

"I'm glad they're fighting over health care and everything else. Let them have at it. But I think that all you have to do is read the paper every day to see how many people there are who are deeply, deeply troubled."

Deeply troubled, indeed!  But the proper response isn't to protest and demonstrate. No, no, no.  That might be your Constitutional right, but you need to exercise it 'responsibly' -- and not by coming together as "angry mobs of white men" that are only pretending to be angry over domestic policy.

However, if they just have to demonstrate, they should be more responsible with their rhetoric and show a little more respect for the office.  (You know, like when they were ones protesting against the Bush administration.)
Tea Parties are too passionate?

Even the 'Tea Party' label, according to Bill Clinton, is a fraud.

"The Boston tea party was about … no taxation without representation. It was not about representation by people you didn't’t vote for and didn't’t agree with but can vote out in the next election."

Isn't that exactly what the Tea Party's rallying cry is?  Vote the bums out in November?

So it isn't really about taxation without representation (even though the Republicans were shut out of the process). No, the real reason is because Barak Obama is black and you are a racist.

"Before the bombing occurred, there was a sort of fever in America. . . Meanwhile, the fabric of American life had been unraveling. More and more people who had a hard time figuring out where they fit in, it is true that we see some of that today."

You see?  It's simple!  (And so are you). White people are angry because they used to hold all the power. But all that is slipping away, so the Tea Party is really a reflection of those Americans Obama derided as "clinging to religion and guns and having antipathy (antipathy: a natural, basic, or habitual repugnance) for those who aren't like them."

Bush=HitlerThe fact that some of the leaders of the Tea Party movement are black is irrelevant -- they are just "Uncle Toms".  The real motivation behind the Tea Party movement is that we object to the president's race, so we of course reject his policies.

Clinton is an expert on race.  That's how lost Teddy Kennedy's support for Hillary during the '08 campaign. According to a new book called "Game Changer"  Clinton reportedly said to Kennedy of Obama, "A few years ago, he'd be getting us coffee."

After Kennedy sided with Obama,  Clinton reportedly griped, "the only reason you are endorsing him is because he's black. Let's just be clear."

DC Tea Party Protest 

As you can see from the photos, the Tea Party movement needs to take a few lessons from the liberals about how to protest 'responsibly'.  Got it?  Good.

What the Obama administration needs right now more than anything else is a good crisis.  It isn't that there isn't a shortage of potential crises that would suit -- but timing is important and November is fast approaching.
If a war doesn't break out in the Middle East, or if there isn't a significant terror attack somewhere inside the US or some other violent crisis that might justify the declaration of martial law and the suspension of November elections,  then one will have to be ginned up somewhere else.

And the Tea Party is the PERFECT patsy. If only they will cooperate.

The Left has maintained a running narrative about the Tea Party being mainly composed of unhinged right-wing Republicans but notice the contrast between the Tea Partiers in this photo and anti-Bush demonstrators at the top of this page.

The Tea Partiers are not freshly-indoctrinated university students out for an adventure.
They are mature, responsible Americans.   Fox News' Chris Wallace scoffed at the notion of the Tea Partiers as an angry mob, describing the demonstrations as being more like "meetings of the Rotary Club."

But the portrait, nonetheless, has been painted.   All it would take is one act of violence at a Tea Party rally for the media to 'prove' the angry white man narrative was accurate all along.

And all it would take is one act of terrorism by somebody claiming to be part of the Tea Party to justify taking extreme measures to 'preserve the peace."

The seed has been planted, watered and carefully cultivated.  Clinton's comment was just that much more fertilizer (pun intended) to help it grow.

"This know also, that in the last days, perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof . . . ."  (2nd Timothy 3:1-5)

I'm reading through that list to see which apply to the Tea Partiers and which apply to their accusers.   I recommend that you try it for yourself.

I'd be curious to see how your own lists balance out.
