Tea Party /Republican Party Revolution

UPDATE: 1:52 PM & 4:11 PM,Nov.6,2009-added details to ENDNOTES

"Republicans are today's fifth column sabotaging American renewal."

"These are not just the "Party Of No", these are the traitors who would rather legalize torture than medical care for all.
" Both quotes From Frank Schaeffer's Blog Nov.2, 2009

And a little something retrieved from The Memory Hole on how President Bush was treated by Republicans and Conservatives as if he were a saint or the Messiah and of course still is by some :

One of the linchpins of the Bush presidency, especially during the first term (and well into the second, until he became a major political liability), was the lock-step uncritical reverence – often bordering on cult-like glorification – which the “conservative” movement devoted to the "Commander-in-Chief." An entire creepy cottage industry arose – led not by fringe elements but by right-wing opinion-making leaders – with cringe-inducing products paying homage to Bush as "The First Great Leader of the 21st Century" (John Podhoretz); our "Rebel-in-Chief" (Fred Barnes); "The Right Man" (David Frum); the New Reagan (Jonah Goldberg); "a man of extraordinary vision and brilliance approaching to genius" who is our "Big Brother" (John Hinderaker); and "the triumph of the seemingly average American man," the supremely "responsible" leader who, when there's a fire, will "help direct the rig to the right house and count the kids coming out and say, 'Where's Sally'?" (Peggy Noonan).

Even as Bush implemented one massive expansion of government power after the next -- the very "un-conservative" policies they long claimed to oppose -- there was nothing but (at best) the most token and muted objections from them. The handful of conservatives who did object were cast aside as traitors to the cause, and criticisms of the President became equated with an overt lack of patriotism. Uncritical support for the Leader was the overarching, defining attribute of conservatism, so much so that even Bill Kristol, in The New York Times, acknowledged: "Bush was the movement and the cause."

Items For Your Consideration

-Republican Party a Cult???

-Republican Party Includes Tea Party Movement & Radical Religious Right / Radical Conservative Movement , Talk (Hate) Radio & Fox News where's the dividing line is there one???

-U.S. A Country of Bigots ???gay marriage illegal in 31 States
Don't Tread On Me

Waiting for Michele Bachman, Sara Palin, Glenn Beck, Limbaugh and the gang to give the orders for a revolution???

The defenders of America's Traditional values and Laws- Sheriffs & The Minutemen & other Fellow Traveling Paranoid Patriot Groups armed & ready to overthrow a tyrannical government esp. if Democrat or run by a Black man.

Talk Show host Mark Williams argues that the leadership of the Republican Party are still not conservative enough or are willing to sign onto a whole list of extreme rightwing principles and policies. But he refuses to mention names. So those Republicans who haven't shown their support for the Tea Party movement by a public appearance should start watching their back.

What are these policies ? Possibly they would include banning Gay marriage, or strip Gays of what rights they have, to make abortion illegal without exception, to allow and insist that the public schools allow for prayer in the classroom and the teaching of the Bible or just stop funding public schools, to teach Creationism or Intelligent Design in the schools and not Evolution or Darwin - what next intern all Muslims or make them at least take an oath of loyalty which other Americans would not have to take.

Washington Is Hallowed Ground says Michele Bachmann (see more on Bachmann in endnotes) -remember she was the one who called for a Witch Hunt in Washington to find those who were not truly loyal to America-and everybody laughed but now America is already in the midst of a new McCarthyism headed by Bachmann , Beck , Hannity, Newt Gingrich and their Klanish friends.

Republicans it appears have no problem defending "Birthers" and other "conspiracy Theories" about Obama. Some of them think this is a matter of Free Speech. But such lies might lead someone to believe it would be their patriotic duty to remove President Obama from Office by violence if necessary. Even Michele Bachman has referred to the notion that periodically revolutions are necessary in America.

Rep. Steve King Signs Tea Party Poster Asking "Ken-Ya Trust Obama"

In a post on his blog Frank Schaeffer discusses how the Republican part has become a cult adhering to a rigid ideology and theology in which heretics that is those with dissenting voices are tossed out or told to shut up. It has become a "Party of Purity". It is more similar to a Marxist/Leninist Communist party which also is always testing members for their faith they too must agree on everything or be tossed out. This is what Lenin, Stalin, and Mao did as became more fanatical and paranoid.Most political parties in democratic countries allow for at least some dissent and disagreements over a few issues. To demand adherence to a long laundry list of beliefs as part of a party platform is often suicide for a part or worse it takes power & sets up a government that barely resembles a democratic government. Didn't Americans have enough of that sort of authoritarian Machiavellian Regime under Bush and Cheney. President Obama for instance actually tried to have Republicans take par in forging new policies and reforms such as Health Care only to be met insults and epithets and accusing their President as being part of some Grande Conspiracy. By doing so I think he may have lost a lot of time during which he could have accomplished more rather than arguing with "the Party of NO"

"The Loony Right Eats Its Own"

But how did the GOP become a "paranoid cult"?

The Republicans are arsonists who burned down our national home. They combined the failed ideologies of the Religious Right, so-called free market deregulation and the Neoconservative love of war to light a fire that has consumed America.

...Reagan would despise today's wholly negative Republican Party. And can you picture the gentlemanly and always polite Ronald I-legalized-abortion-in-California Reagan, endorsing a radio hate-jock slob who crudely mocked a man with Parkinson's and who now says he wants an American president to fail?!

... the Republican Party has become the party of obstruction at just the time when all Americans should be pulling together for the good of our country. Instead, Republicans are today's fifth column sabotaging American renewal.

These are not just the "Party Of No", these are the traitors who would rather legalize torture than medical care for all.

For the party that created our crises of misbegotten war, mismanaged economy, the lack of regulation of our banking industry, handing our country to rich crooks... to obstruct the one person who is trying to repair the damage is obscene. And now they are eating their own, since once you embrace purity no one is ever pure enough. This is the result of replacing planet earth with planet ideology, politics with religion.

Unless you haven't been paying attention to the recent history of the Republican Party you will know that today Republican ideology and energy is derived from three sources: the Religious Right, the Neoconservative Movement and corporate business interests.

The Republican problem was and is a systemic disparagement of government, community, faith in our institutions, family, God's creation and the mitigating institutions that put a check on something any party aligned with a religious movement should know all about: sin. Greed is not the only problem. The genius of the American system is supposedly that we have a system of checks and balances. The Republicans destroyed those checks and balances by deregulation and by trying to turn America into a defacto theocracy.

Bush felt no guilt about promoting completely unqualified people to high posts merely on the basis of social, ideological or political connections. I'll take that a step further: I don't think Bush ever wanted the government to work.

For example the religious Right's win in Maine against Gay marriage can be seen as America becoming more intolerant and moving towards a quasi-Judeo Christian Theocracy. The Bible preaches a Talibanistic form of governance which is the rule by local religious leaders and enforced by an old style Sheriff such Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona. Most federal government departments would just be closed down. Thereby return to a pre-Civil War mentality or even earlier ie the age of the Puritans hanging witches , adulterers, homosexuals, heretics etc.

Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, just for some - The United States of Bigotry November 4, 2009 | Dearborn, Michigan CNN posted by TJCIII

With Maine being the 31st state to make gay marriage illegal it makes you wonder if Americans truly love freedom and if they even believe in the words “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”. You would think that after 233 years of existence, the people of this country would have moved on from age old hate, but nope, you got it, the people are just as ignorant today as they were 4000 years ago holding on to discrimination to oppress a minority because they are just different.

Now that Americans are showing their true colors, whose rights should we go after next? Should we start voting on who can and cannot have children? Should your fellow American trample on your private relationship because they do not approve of it? There are many things I alone can come up with to take away the liberties of another, but when do we say enough is enough and start living by the standards this country is supposed to stand for – Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness?

We are not the United States of America, but the United States of Bigots. How dare anyone vote to write discrimination into our constitution? Are you going to stand idle behind these unjust acts and pretend that this hate will never be directed towards you? In the past few weeks, I have heard many complain that the Muslim religion will take over this country and that America will one day be under Sharia law, but obviously you want this if you have voted against gay marriage, you alone are opening the doors for religious rule that will destroy all the freedoms in this country, you abuse every single day!

The phrase "pursuit of happiness" appeared in the 1967 U.S. Supreme Court case, Loving v. Virginia, 388 U.S. 1 (1967), which focused on an anti-miscegenation statute. Chief Justice Warren wrote: "The freedom to marry has long been recognized as one of the vital personal rights essential to the orderly pursuit of happiness by free men."

The phrase was also used in Meyer v. Nebraska, 262 U.S. 390 (1923), which is seen as the seminal case interpreting the "liberty" interest of the Due Process clause of the fourteenth amendment as guaranteeing, among other things, a right to the pursuit of happiness, and, consequently, a right to privacy.

Rep. Michelle Bachmann told KTLKs Sue Jeffers that Democrats had plans to require mandatory service from Americas young people. I believe that there is a very strong chance that we will see that young people will be put into mandatory service. And the real concerns is that there are provisions for what I would call re-education camps for young people, where young people have to go and get trained in a philosophy that the government puts forward and then they have to go to work in some of these politically correct forums, said Bachmann

and check out : Spencer Bachus Makes List Of 17 Socialists In Congress byJason Linkins at Huffington Post, April 9, 2009

Not too long ago, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann was on Hardball, calling for the media to investigate her Congressional colleagues to "find out if they are pro-America or anti-America." Well, it turns out that someone has taken up Bachmann's call on a proactive basis! His name is Spencer Bachus and he has made a list -- a secret list! -- of the socialists in the House of Representatives. Or so he told the Birmingham News. Who are the seventeen socialists? That's the secret part, apparently.

From The Hill's Briefing Room:

Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-Ala.) puts the number of socialists in the House at 17.

"Some of the men and women I work with in Congress are socialists," Bachus told local government leaders on Thursday, according to the Birmingham News.

Bachus gave the specific number of House socialists when pressed later by a reporter.
