If you're not aware, and I don't know how that could be, Fox News with right-wing backing from such luminaries as Newt Gingrich and Richard Armey are staging across the nation today (Tax Day) a protest billed as a tea party after the Boston Tea Party from our revolutionary era. A media event created by the media its self. The last time that happened, I think we blew up a ship in Havana harbor, wasn't it, and started the Spanish American war.
What these butt-licking curs don't recognize is that the taxes they're protesting are from the Bush's right-wing Republican dominated administration. But, as we know, these whack jobs never let the facts encumber their actions and words.
But, the truly dangerous thing about their events, utterances, and behavior is the sense of empowerment and permission they give to the unhinged, deranged and absolutely dangerous elements in our country.
One such lunatic was seen at their so-called tea party holding a placard saying: END ALL UNCONSTITUTIONAL ANTI-CHRIST SOCIALISM FEDERAL DEFICIT SPENDING PROGRAMS.
One does not believe he had in mind Bush's illegal wire-taps, extreme rendition, torture and invasion and occupation of Iraq. Here's a clue as to the guy's mental state---ALL CAPS. Yep, you can almost see this wild-eyed, spittle-flying berserker screaming at the top of his voice.
But, don't take just my word for it. Check out this video from MSNBC.
