Same Maxine Watersesque meme, new 'angry Black Congresswoman' (this one with a snappy red, sequined cowboy hat!) blaming the jobs, economic and social crisis in the African American community on (drum roll) THE TEA PARTY!!! (Which has no official leader, headquarters, or policy position--a band of like minded Americans of ALL races wanting to reform the quagmire that Washington has become--a movement only about a year and a half old).
"The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism - ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. "
Hmm, sounds like the leadership of the GOP, namely Rush Limbaugh. (after all, you can't anger master Rush now can you?)
Forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism...
Hmm, that sounds a lot like the surge in Anti Immigrant and Anti Muslim protests around the country to me, who was doing that by the way? Oh that's right CONSERVATIVES.

Actually the TEA party does in fact have a party line and agenda, and that is to bring the United States into a Fascist Oligarchy. It's an old plan that was first brought forth by Prescott Bush, George HW Bush's father.
See, corporations are in league with fascist elements within the United States and they are using the TEA Party to further their own political goals.
It's no wonder people fall for it. They believe their taxes are too high, and they are told that if you tax the richest 1% of Americans then they will take their jobs elsewhere.
The truth is quite the opposite and it's been proven by history that when you tax the wealthy they tend to create more jobs because they have to conduct more business in order to make the same amount of money they do when their taxes are lowered.
