Tea with Maxine

            It's always comforting when a member of the United States Congress condemns millions of fellow Americans to eternal damnation.  The recent “tea party can go straight to hell” comment from the odious mouth of Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Ca) is just the latest example of secular progressive hate speech.  Shall we review?

Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fl):  "The real enemy is the tea party –- let's remember that. The tea party holds Congress hostage…They have one goal in mind, and that's to make President Obama a one-term president."

Jesse Jackson:  "The tea party is a new name on an old game. Dr. King fought a 'tea party' in Alabama...He had no weapons, but he confronted the tea party."

Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Pa):  “We have negotiated with terrorists….” referring to negotiations with tea party Republicans over the debt limit deal. 

Vice-President Joe Biden: responding to Doyle…..”they have acted like terrorists”

Sen. John Kerry (D-Ma):  “This is a tea party downgrade……..”  referring to Standard and Poor’s downgrading of the U.S. credit rating.

           Try a little experiment… settle into your favorite chair, close your eyes, take a deep breath, and imagine this...  Rep. John Doe (R-Anywhere) stands up at a town hall meeting and screams  “The New Black Panther Party are terrorists!  They can go straight to hell, and take the NAACP with them!”  Can we all agree that Rep. Doe’s political career would be over as the last syllable left his mouth?  Has anyone seen the news report of Maxine Waters being forced to resign over her execrable comments?  Me neither.  Has anyone seen or heard President Obama rebuke and disavow those comments?  Me neither. 

            Some try to explain to Maxine Waters and her ilk that Tea Party members are simply citizens who believe in personal liberties, want to reduce governmental intrusion and confiscation of assets, blah blah blah.  Why bother?  Secular progressives have heard it all before, and just simply don’t care. 

            It is time for true conservatives to realize that we are in a knock-down, drag-out, no holds barred steel cage match for the future of the United States.  The time for compromise and negotiation is over.  We believe American greatness is defined by individual liberty, opportunity, and achievement.  They believe greatness is measured by the size of the federal government, and the number of citizens dependent on the government for their every need.  Never the twain shall meet.  I see great difficulties and tumult in the years to come.  So did Oliver Wendell Holmes when he said ...."between two groups of people who want to make inconsistent kinds of worlds, I see no remedy but force".  Me neither.
