I think the request for a list of the Tea Party Movement crimes was a jest, or at least I hope so. But let's discuss some of those claimed by the
First and foremost; the Tea Party Movement itself. The Right has no right to set things right according to the Left. Only true people's democracy can
Next is the rise of Hate Crimes due to the TPM according to the SPLC. However the FBI said hate crimes have decreased.
The TPM favors an exegesis interpretation of the Constitution rather than the liberals' eisegesis approach, and thus the Left claims it favors racism
and desires to end SS, Medicare, Medicaid, and all welfare programs, all indications the Right wants to murder minorities and the poor as illustrated
in the DNC's add about Boehner murdering a woman in a wheelchair. The left also accuses the TPM of favoring ending illegal immigration, secure
borders, and verification of identity to vote in elections, all very "violent" nationalist positions as opposed to their favored one-world
Then there was the supposed white racist at an Obama rally who was carrying an automatic assault weapon. It turned out the video was intentionally
cropped by MSNBC so as to cover the fact it was a black man with a semi-auto assault looking weapon in a state where it was legal.
The Left also said racism of the TPM was proven by racist KKK signs and individuals at Tea Party rallies but it was shown that the individual was
actually a Leftist agent provocateur, who by the way was chased off by Tea party members. It should be mention that Leftists had previously advocated
doing such at TPM rallies.
The Left feels it was a criminal abuse of the 1st Amendment for the TPM to form to support the bailouts of banks and GM as they claim However, the TPM
formed to protest such bailouts.
The Tea Party has criminally accepted financial backing from the Koch brothers according to the Left while the Left and OWS haven't gotten a dime
While there were disruptions of Townhall meetings by Tea Party people demanding politicians answer questions, there were no setting of fires, rocks
thru windows, rushing of speakers on stage, hitting politicians, or death threats to speakers as occurred when invited conservatives attempted to
speak at some colleges.
Finally, certain Leftist sites like OpEdNews are insinuating that the coverage of violence and crimes at OWS rallies are manufactured or staged by
right-wing media but that people like Limbaugh, Beck, and Palin were responsible for the wounding of Rep. Giffords. By the way, it was a conservative
Republican federal judge who was killed, one that Obama can now replace and the shooter's writings were Leftist in nature.
