1. I Just Watched the Whole Thing

I think I saw it a couple years ago, but it was good to look back on it in a historical sense. Well worth an hour.

Thanks for posting it!

2. All of a sudden W. is out of office, McCain loses, and they scream tyranny.

Just forget that W. oversaw one of the largest expansions of the government ever, paid for wars on Chinese credit, and played his part in nearly bringing us into another Great Depression. The "party of personal responsibility" is full of overgrown babies and whiny bitches. You cannot remain a first rate power and a first world society in a postindustrial world with libertarianism. It is the lack of socialism and the ignorance of what socialism actually is that is destroying this country, and rotting it from the inside out.

6. Electing a black man to the presidency insulted their noble racist sentiments.

Seriously. I know these people. They actually think of their racism as noble and justify it in a thousand ways. The Tea Party is basically a national version of KKK white supremacy.

Tea Party motto: "Theocracy NOW! Theocracy FOREVER!"

5. This is an exhibition of ignorance.

Every Tea Party member the guy interviews states a false, inaccurate view of the government.

This was before the Bush tax cuts had expired yet all these dummies were telling the guy how their taxes keep going up.

They kept saying the government was trending toward socialism. Where? How? It is an absurd claim.

The bald guy in Colorado was saying the government wants to own the water and the air we breathe. What he actually means is, the government (the EPA) enforces limits on how much he and his disaster capitalist hoard can pollute. In other words he wants the right to pollute with impunity.

There wouldn't even have been a Tea Party movement without collusion by the corporate media. It certainly isn't any grass roots movement as they would have us believe.

8. The grass roots thing explained.

Because they sprang up from bullshit, which they mistook as fertilizer, they thought they were grassroots. They still fail to recognize they are merely an extension of the bullshit, not an organic benefit to the country.
