The horror.


You made me spray my beverage. Lol.

I agree. I am really not sure why we Americans just dont get that we have to get the professional politicians out. All of them. They have been lying to us for decades, they are not going to have a change of heart because you wear teapots on your head and mail them tea bags.

You have to get them out of power, and then change the laws to keep corporate and private wealth from buying our elections.

I think you clearly did not understand the context. It was not just one email. The use of "one" was to describe one of the emails. Surely you realize that. There was also a pile of bile on her Facebook page the following day after her vote.

I think I did. The article cites and example to prove the premise by offering this as evidence

One Tea Party citizen writes:


I am not sure about you but "one" means 1 to me and since that is the ONLY example the article has, I find it hard to get all worked up about the bigger implication that is supposed to mean.

It was not just one email. The use of "one" was to describe one of the emails. Surely you realize that. There was also a pile of bile on her Facebook page the following day after her vote.

A whole pile huh?

So how many tens of thousands of TEA party posts bashing her on facebook were there?

I get it. I am sure she got a few angry phone calls as well. Maybe even some snail mail is on the way. The article can try to conflate one email and some facebook spam to actual backlash but when you pull your head out of facebook and enter the world where most actual VOTERS live, you just hear them damn chicadas.

I will believe there is some actual TEA party backlash when I SEE TEA party backlash. Believe me, I know it when I see it. They spent the better part of the last two years showing us how they present backlash against things like healthcare reform. They set a precident for what their backlash consists of.

I do not frequent facebook, much less Bachman's personal page. Eerily quiet out here.

Bachmann is an educated lawyer…hmmmm well I am just a student working on my undergrad, but I am willing to bet that I could totally own her in a one on one debate on this issue.

Apparently you missed the entire text of my last post?

I acknowledged that she got a "whole pile." Thank you for posting what a pile looks like. It seems pretty small to me. Please read my post again. Look at this response to it. Try to make sense with all that together.

She got some bad posts on facebook. Wow! Are you trying to pretend the TEA Party was not out in full force trying to show how big their numbers were and how active they are when they are mad for the last two years? Maybe you missed it?

The "Tea Party" was infiltrated and hijacked by a bunch of scumbag Republicans who were desperate for votes after old King George left their party to rot in the sun.


The true Tea Party was a grass roots movement initiated by Ron Paul supporters several year ago.

As soon as the vampires, the idiots and half witted charlatans like Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin latched on I knew the party would be doomed to die a slow agonizing death.

The Tea Party wasnt started as a platform for unstable gun nuts and corporate whore's to continue on the great GOP tradition of raping the voter base and funneling money to their corporate pals. It was started as a means of giving a third viable option against the corrupt two headed beast that is our current electoral system.

It was started to bring about change to a corrupt system, to adhere to the principles of the US Constitution, to bring power back to the people.

Now it is one big joke. Go tell that at Faux news.......you can put lipstick on a pig but you cant make the dumb b***h any smarter.

I only became interested in politics at all because of Ron Paul. I was one of the tiny percent that voted for him in the 1988 presidential election. When I saw how badly the press treated him then I realized that politics would not be sufficient to change this corrupt system. I just can't bring myself to register as a republican. Voting for Libertarians is a lot like political masturbation. It might make you feel good but it will produce no progeny or any real lasting benefit.

I really do not understand that every time I see it. Is it now an excuse for the deafening silence by the TEA party? I mean, if it was hijacked by the people they claim it was hijacked by...


...why did so many people keep going to the rallies? Was Bachmen forcing TEA party rallies to come to her? Did she literally sneak in and hijack rallies and carry them to her speaking events? Palin? Beck? Who are the hijackers? Can we get some names? After the names, I will be looking for excuses as to why so many TEA party folks loudly supported the hijackers.

Michele Bachmann Suffers Backlash From Tea Party On Patriot Act Vote


thatsmycongress.com

During her re-election campaign in 2010, U.S. Representative Michele Bachmann promised that she would take a firm stand in defense of her constituents’ constitutional rights. She got a great deal of support from earnest Tea Party members because of that stand. They took Bachmann at her word, and gave her so much support that this year.

All that was before Bachmann’s vote this week in favor of the renewal of the most abusive, clearly unconstitutional, spying powers in the Patriot Act.
(visit the link for the full news article)






Don't forget she wants to mess with veteran's bennys too. She is a real pip.

Now do you conservative voters see how republicans really are? They kiss up to get elected and then forget about ordinary people.

Vote republican and cut your own retirement throat. It's true.

But they have been hijacked by Republicans. There may be one or two REAL tea party people in Congress, but they're invisible, because so many Republicans and neocons got voted in on the Tea Party name. They lied.

Most of the TP people in Congress are Republicans in TP clothing.





Michelle Bachmann is a total joke. She's quite insane.

It's called HOPE. Pure and simple, people were hoping that the TP was a real movement. They were hoping that the Republican ideals wouldn't hold up under Tea Party rule. They were lied to and believed it. It's really kind of sad.

Democrats....Republicans...it doesn't matter.
They all have the same agenda, they just run under different ruses.
As soon as people recognize this and understand it, then a true third party representative will get elected. And only then, will a real change be plausible.

A friend of mine went off on me and said the Tea Party is a third party,...essentially.
I politely bought him drink and told him to read.

GO RON PAUL.....It seems you may be our only savior.

What you refer to as silence from the Tea Party is actually silence from the media on TP movement that is not interesting to the press. The press will not bring a camera out even when the TP is 10,000 strong at a rally for the republic for instance and Ron Paul is speaking. Let the Tea Party Express and Palin command a crowd and the press are all over it and thus no silence. It is all a lot of perception engineering by the MSM. The real grass roots is ignored and the fringe crazies or the neocons are the ones that have a camera in their face. It distorts the truth of the grass roots involvement.

I remember early on in the Tea Party there was a rally for the republic in DC and over 10,000 + people attended. It was peaceful and orderly if loud. There were dozens of videos on youtube covering it and RT, Press TV, and Al Jazeera were all there with cameras but not one American news outfit covered this very large event. Fox did not start covering the Tea Party events until it had been infiltrated and cooped by the neocons they serve. It is all just perceptual distortion and control you are reacting to.

Why should this story get play on Fox news they might flip the story and say the Tea party approves of Michelle Bachmann's vote on the Patriot Act. Like they did with Ron paul.


FOX news would say that Obama henchmen made her change her vote...i mean really...he's to blame for everything. he was a community organizer after all, and a non-citizen, and a socialist...did i mention that he is black?


I thought he was a black-white, Christian-Muslim, communist-fascist, who was born in the United States of Kenya.

Shows what I know...

Edit- Oh, and that Bachamnn woman should be recalled.

am betting that the backlash from the Tea Party against all of these double dealing liars they helped to get elected is going to continue. They will begin to realize that you can not vote a man or woman into office and expect them to do what they said they would do. If they want to stay in office they will tow the party line or be delegated to the fringe. It is going to take a massive show of force for the people to take their government back from these coin operated corporatist globalist spit bags.


I truely don't believe the Tea Party isn't even a grassroots effort anymore,
Yes it started out that way
but as all things good....
It is now, Tea Party INC.
