Challenging the Status Quo is suddenly unfashionable

I say “suddenly”, but this has been a slow intrusion on our first amendment rights for years by the leftist and liberal Democrats. You speak against their agenda and they demonize you with whatever box they can put you in that fits; be it the “racist” box, whatever.

The so-called “Tea Party” is one example of that box. It is nothing but ordinary people, a real grass roots movement consisting of folks who are fed up with not only Democrat spending but Republican acquiescence and capitulation to “Big Government” policies. There were no leaders, but as often happens, people with aspirations run immediately to the front of the group and try to harness their power and move them in whatever direction suits their particular purpose. Not leaders; usurpers.

Controlling such a movement proved impossible for and one person or group to achieve, it was like herding cats to even try. They’d simply spinter off and start another group, and another, and another.

One group may like Sarah Palin, another Ron Paul, another Rick Perry, and another likes nobody.

The movement itself scares the living hell out of Democrat leadership because they recognize it for what it truly is; the real deal – the closest thing they’ve seen since the sixties. Believe me, they’re trying to gin up their own movement (see Coffee Party), but a grass roots movement is bottom up, not top down. It can’t be faked.

“Humanity is the incarnation of freedom, and the state is the negation of freedom.” says Judge Andrew Napolitano in the clip below. “The tea party today is vilified for challenging the status quo and the rotting political structure around us.”

What he says in this video is important to pass on and remember. Whatever you may think of Andrew Napolitano, he gets it right here.

  1. The Judge is as right as rain. And to your point about their fear of the Tea Party – you know how their Talking Points Memos always include ‘phobe’? Do you suppose they are suffering from Tea Party phobia? Or is their fear wholly warranted and maybe they ought to start looking for careers in …….gold futures or something?

  2. Both sides seem to be afraid of the Tea Party, but the more they go after the American People, the greater will be their response. In 2009, they said we’d be gone, 2010 showed them they were wrong. Now they are desperate to marginalize the American people and silence their voices before the 2012 election.

  3. (Beginning of rant)

    And in order to “progress” towards this ancient, outdated form of societal structure, our entire political system has been corrupted.

    Expecting liberals to have any moral or ethical qualms about this type of corruption is like trying to catch raindrops in a sieve…a useless, senseless exercise in futility.

    When it comes to some of our Republicans, however…I’ve never been so disgusted by anything in my life as I have been by the response of some of our elected officials and so-called political pundits on the Republican end of the spectrum who undermine the Tea Party and any candidates who associate themselves with this grassroots movement.

    Hey, all you lily-livered, weak-kneed, wet-noodle-spine Repubs, do you not know what the opportunity of a lifetime looks like? It’s being handed to you on a silver platter, and you’re scoffing, mocking, and belittling it?

    Not exactly confidence-inspiring, guys.
