Politico Op-Ed: TEA Partiers Are Terrorists

The actual headline reads “The tea party’s terrorist tactics“, which is interesting, when one considers that The Politico, like so many other leftist news outlets, refers to actual Islamist terrorists as militants and insurgents. And, having kept track of so many liberal blogs and forums for a long time, the Left generally thinks of Conservatives as The Enemy in the same way Conservatives consider al Qaeda as an enemy

It has become commonplace to call the tea party faction in the House “hostage takers.” But they have now become full-blown terrorists.

It’s actually kind of surprising that the Politico would allow this kind of “un-civil” rhetoric, but, hey, in today’s news cycle, the biggest stories tend to be attention whore ones.

They have joined the villains of American history who have been sufficiently craven to inflict massive harm on innocent victims to achieve their political goals. A strong America has always stood firm in the face of terrorism. That tradition is in jeopardy, as Congress and President Barack careen toward an uncertain outcome in the tea party- manufactured debt crisis.

I distinctly remember many on the Left wanting to leave Afghanistan alone and, instead, sit back and consider what America did to tick al Qaeda off. Barack Obama was one of them.

As we stumble closer to Aug. 2, it has become clear that many in the tea party are willing to inflict massive harm on the American people to obtain their political objective of a severely shrunken federal government. Their persistence in rejecting compromise, even as the economic effects of the phony crisis they have created mount, has taken their radicalism beyond tough negotiating, beyond even hostage-taking.

So, if we apply the same “logic” (or, should that be, apoplexy?) to the Democrats, they are willing to inflict massive harm on the American people in order to continue spending more money to increase the size of the federal government and mortgage and destroy the future of our next generations.

As markets fall in anticipation that there may not be a timely resolution; as credit agencies issue dire warnings that the U.S. political system has become so dysfunctional that a credit downgrade may be inevitable, and as America looks weakened in the eyes of the world, the tea party’s hostage-taking has evolved into the intentional infliction of harm on innocent Americans to achieve a political objective — terrorism.

Terrorism is a tough term, but, unfortunately, it describes tea party tactics precisely. Their first step was to vow not to vote to raise the debt ceiling.

Whatever you say, sparky. But, tell me, William Yeomans, why should we listen to a man who “served as Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel on the Senate Judiciary Committee”? Didn’t it bother you to work for a man who ran away to create an alibi as a young woman was left in a car that was slowly sinking into a river, allowing her plenty of time to think about her coming death from drowning?

Anyhow, how do you respond to unhinged liberals? Well, I don’t see a need to give a juvenile rant an adult answer, so,

Oh, and you should probably try this, Will
