I find it disgusting that there were people who lined the Capital on the day that Health Care passed and yelled the N word at some Congressmen, yelled the word Faggot at Barney Frank and spit on a congressman as well. Christine, at TalkWisdom put up a post yesterday titled Rep. McCotter: Obama’s "Hope and Change" Has Degenerated into "Tax and Hate." I left this comment:
What kind of hate is this guy talking about? Surely he must mean all the racist and homophobic statements yelled at the Democrats after the health care bill was passed (not to mention the spitting)? Or is he referring to at least ten members of congress who have received death threats?
Maybe he is referring to the fact that the de facto head of the new Republican Party (Rush Limbaugh) has called for wiping these people out? Jeez, talk about hate…
Also, where in the bill is the statement about adding a certain amount to student loans? I haven’t heard about this.

She didn’t like it and dedicated a whole post to my comment. She thinks that the people who yelled n**ger and faggot and spit on Democratic congressmen were Democratic plants! Ugh.
Anyway, I just saw a video clip of some of the threats that Rep. Stupak from Michigan is receiving after he voted Yes for Health Care Reform. I’ve inserted it below. Listen to it and see if you can imagine that these callers are ‘Democratic plants”:
Here is more evidence—unless of course you think all this was done by sneaky Democrats to embarrass the Tea Party people.
Here is another incident that took place at a home targeted members of the TEA Party (that stands for Taxed Enough Already).
If you can get onto Facebook you can see this video of the crap that when on at the TEA PARTY group in Washington on Sunday.
You can also read more about the violence directed at Democrats here.
Also see here.
Who ever thought that providing people with health care would cause people such grief???
The good thing about all of this is that these Tea Partiers can no longer say that this will be the end of the Democrats. The polls are showing people are happy with it and happy about the work that President Obama did. On the other hand, people are unhappy with the Republicans. Who knows—maybe November will see a super majority of Democrats when these whiny Republicans are kicked out of office!
And why do they name themselves this? They don’t know their history. The Tea Party was done because the colonists wanted representation because they were being taxed. The Tea Party does have representation—the problem is that they lost the election to President Obama. And if they are taxed enough already, shouldn’t they blame the last president and his 8 years of constant war for any tax increases they might have had? I also find it humorous that they hold up Ronald Reagan as their guide. They don’t seem to know that he appointed the first Czars AND instituted the largest tax increase since WWII. I suppose not knowing history is a good thing for them.
I also don’t understand why they didn’t form when Bush and Reagan were in control?
