After the Healthcare bill was pass, several members of Congress received death threats, one of them even had their office trashed. They yell racial slur at one member of congress and hold up signs saying that next time they may come armed. Some of them do come armed at these protest. However, instead of being regarded as a terrorist organization, or at least a hate organization, they're being nominated to run for political office.

Why am I regarding them as terrorist? Because they do use fear to get what they want, they've already proven that they're willing to intimidate and threaten members of our country if they don't get what they want, and they've already proven that they're not shy about coming to their protest armed. We have Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh egging them on ever so slightly.

The whole thing reminds me of when the KKK had several of it's members in political power.

Thoughts?


It would be a terrorist organization of the leaders of the party were actively promoting the deaths of non-party assemblymen.

They aren't. They're a shit party, but they aren't. Don't go and pull this bullshit sensationalism, though, because it's as bad as they are.


Ok, so I am willing to concede that they are not an organized terrorist group. However they have resorted to terrorist tactics.

The first links dont even show how the Tea Party was involved. As for the racial slurs, that was never proven with video. Just because they say it happened dosnt mean it did.

For some reason I think the American view of a typical terrorist is likely a male with a beard from the Middle East.

Like what? Individual members of their political party have gone way out of line and threatened the life of assemblymen. Since when has this not happened?

I mean, for fuck's sake, were Republicans a terrorist organization after the Oklahoma City Bombing?

Because their organization does not condone nor call for violence would be my guess. I don't know the legal definition of terrorist or terrorist organization however saying Tea Parties=Terrorist would be about as broad as saying Muslims=Terrorist.

Oi with the arguing in circles over the same tired old topic yet again, and the trolling one another on either side with 'who is a real Christian' and 'why your logic sucks'. How about we put this one to bed again. It's going nowhere. You aren't going to change anyone's minds. Stick a fork in it kids - it's done.-Dread Lady Nathanica
