Reid Keeps Whining About Anarchists In Congress


Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) took to the Senate floor Thursday to whine about how “anarchists” have taken over Congress.

The Senator was addressing Congress’ lack of progress on a number of bills, including an energy-efficiency bill and Obamacare-related legislation, when he blamed “anarchist” Tea Party Republicans for legislative holdups.

“We’re diverted totally from what this bill is about. Why? Because the anarchists have taken over,” Reid said. “They’ve taken over the House and now they’ve taken over the Senate.

“People who don’t believe in government — and that’s what the Tea Party is all about — are winning, and that’s a shame.”

This isn’t the first time Reid has labeled lawmakers with Tea Party roots as “anarchists.”

“Who is the Tea Party? Well, understand, when I was in school I studied government, among other things. And prior to World War I and after World War I, we had the anarchists. Now, they were violent,” he said earlier this year. “Some say that’s what started World War I, the anarchy movement. But they were violent. They did damage to property and they did physical damage to people. The modern anarchists don’t do that. That’s the Tea Party. But they have the same philosophy as the early anarchists. They do not believe in government. Anytime anything bad happens to government, that’s a victory for them.”

    Tea party anarchists yeah right. All the Tea party want is limited government. Is that such a big threat to Harry Reid? I guess we need one hundred percent government to please Harry. Better sing We worship you oh government. Yes I did include a little pun. Go Ahead make my day Harry. We the American people are tired of your crap.You will lose in the coming elections.

    • real talk 1

      Old Harry will go down lying cheating deceiving arm twisting hollering to the bitter end.

    • JimH

      Hi James, you’re right, there is a huge difference between limited government and no government.
      The government shouldn’t be “all or nothing”.
      The way the Founders framed it is just right.

    What I meant to say was “take a flying leap and kiss my lskjf> I think that now that conservatives have taken the kid gloves off and started to play like the Dems they don’t like it and have started calling us names just like in school. I’m telling, I’m going home, I’ll take my ball and leave. Well Harry you won’t make it past another election.
    Preventing bad legislation from becoming law is not anarchy. Stopping this train wreck called Obamacare is not anarchy, just common sense. Making the responsible accountable for the irresponsible is not good government its Communism.

    • Deb

      Good post dick! I agree-too bad the sheepie libs were probably all bobbing their heads in agreement with ole Harry on this one!

      • real talk 1

        Most of the liberals have gotten very wealthy being what and who they are and they will lie and cheat at the pearly gates out of old habits.

  • Bill

    We need more anarchists to take over the house, senate and presidency

  • Jimmy Weber

    Dingy Harry (as Rush calls him) doesn’t like that the Republicans control what comes up for a vote in the house. But he has no trouble in that the Democrats through him control what comes up for a vote in the Senate.

    • real talk 1

      Harry is a old clown from the broadville circus days and he has a loyal following, Maybe one day his mouth will stop moving and spewing lies and indecent proposals and let the people from his district prosper.

    : a situation of confusion and wild behavior in which the people in a country, group, organization, etc., are not controlled by rules or laws
    Let’s see, passing the owebomb euthaasia plan was totall within the law when they bought votes via the cornhuskers kickback and frankens “found and convict’ votes in Minn. plus pasing it by deeming it passed. to name a few. When the owebomb cannot get congress to do his bidding he just signs an executive order violating the constitution and that is not anarchy What would you call it hairy” an oligarchy?

    • wavesofgrain

      Thank you for posting this definition. This confirms that Democrats are the anarchists. They are the ones who insist on breaking/changing the rules of the nation, like the rules of marriage, rules of immigration, citizenship, morals, rules of our privacy, rules of free speech, etc etc etc.

  • northbrook

    I would rather have an anarchist then stupidity leading the nation. Where does Reid fall in those categories? You can answer the question.
    Long live the Tea Party

    • Doc Sarvis

      Anarchists do not lead nations.

      • real talk 1

        When old lying Harry was a boy they would take the likes of him and tar and feather his kind, and ride them out of town on a rail.

      • Vigilant

        Don’t kid yourself, Sarvis. Every anarchist dreams of running the nation HIS way.

      • liz

        Apparently they do, look at O’Bama.

  • peter

    There are many things that Reid doesn’t know to his utter dismay, but he seriously does not know what an Anarchist is. Those Frenchies who stormed the Bastille on July 14th were Anarchists Harry – and believe me if those kind of Anarchists arrive on your doorstep you just may be in trouble. I just wish he would stop whining and do something worthwhile, like saying something intelligent or relevant or perhaps just take a trip to North Korea in a submarine with the portholes open. America can do without people like him, Obama, Kerry and Hillary who all work on the “trust me” theme. Make two rules in your life today.
    Rule1. Never trust anyone who says ” trust me” and 2. See Rule1.

    • real talk 1

      Who ever said you had to be smart to be a liberal when you hear the truth deny deny deny and for ever lie.

        Reid is an old snake, slow, vicious, and very poisonous, hopefully soon to retire.

  • garygerke

    Harry, we have a Constitution that has been changed, amended and outright ignored. All of you Progressive Communists would totally shred what’s left of it.

    • real talk 1

      Harry was there when it was written he knows the drill but the liberalism in him won’t set him free . He’ll go down lying and denying and looking like his dumb self boy what politics do to some people.

      • garygerke

        RIGHT ON, TO TRUE!

  • Warrior

    Actually, if dingy had used the term “progressives” instead of anarchists, he would have been absolutely correcto mundo. Time for your “recess” little one. Go make nicey with your classmates. Your “country club” is in shambles and look no further then your own mirror little man. You are one pathetic disgrace to even be considered a “representative” of the “people”. You obviously missed the class that taught “rulers” are for measuring!

  • Deb

    Name calling and lying-two of the things libtards excel at-Reid does both here, but hopefully no-one with even 1/2 a brain is listening anymore.

    • real talk 1

      I hope you are right!

  • Dave

    Did Harry just infer that the Unions are anarchists? “But they were violent. They did damage to property and they did physical damage to people. “

    • real talk 1

      He is just being himself a clown he’s a old man and don’t know when to quit and shut up , and those that look up to him are too weak to realize his condition they are all sick at birth it’s the DNA thru decades of liberalism.

  • wavesofgrain

    OMG, Harry Reid is telling extreme falsehoods. Look at the groups causing destruction and damage to this country. Look at the difference between the Tea Party gatherings and the Occupy Wall Street thugs!!! He should be asked to show proof that lovers of our constitution are more violent that the Unions/Occupy/StreetGangs. He also should be asked to step down.

    • Warrior

      Dragged off the stage kicking and whining would be more preferable! I just looked in Websters under dingy and there is a pic of a bull with teets.

      • real talk 1

        I think people like Harry and pelosi think they somehow will be remembered as dignified officials but the longer they stay the more ignorant they talk like buffoons and male and female old clowns some one should let them know.

    • real talk 1

      For a old man this guy is a real fool Harry you should quit and go home grab some tea bags and a blanket and sit the hell down and shut that old lying mouth.

  • GiveMeLiberty,OrGiveMeDeath

    I love it, he admits the Tea Party is winning…..
    Yes that is great.
    Tea Party is not anarchists. Tea Party is for smaller government, Tea Party is for responsible spending in government, Tea Party is for the Constitution, which by the way is For The People, and By The People.
    So Mr. Reid, put that in your pipe and smoke it.
    So I pray that come 2014 that the Senate and House will hold more of the true American Tea Party Patriots.

    • Bill

      Hi Give,
      We all know that but the liberals are so scared of that concept, they have to make stuff up

  • Alex

    Last evening, the esteemed Rachel Maddow took a good look at the pathology that has led to the permanent, unstoppable decline of the GOP.

    While no Republican is rising to the top like a bloated hurricane victim after weeks of being submerged, wacky Ted Cruz of Texass seems to have the most traction at this time. Because of his current trajectory, fellow Republicans are hesitant to criticize him, even when he displays his stupidity.

    The case in point is Senator Cruz insisting that what the country needs is “100
    Jesse Helms in the Senate.”

    At a time when the GOP is taking another laughably futile stab at attracting Black and women voters, the ludicrous and thoughtless staement by Cruz should be met with angry refutation by the GOP stalwarts. Instead, they cower in silence, since Cruz is the Reich Wing Wonder Boy of the moment.

    Doomed. Conservatism is righteously doomed….

    • real talk 1

      You clowns never quit and you had better believe that the blacks you speak of no longer exist they are going to bring down the slave driven democratic party you better wake up, Their day is up.

      • Bill

        Hi Real,
        Good comment. It is amazing how the term racist was hardly ever used any more until Obama came along. It is used so much now that it has no shock value any more. When a liberal calls you a racist it just means that they have ran out of anything intelligent to say and their only come back is resorting to name calling

    • rpm44

      Alex you stated (esteemed Rachel Madcow) that says enough about the rest of your comment right there

      • Bill

        You are right, after that first bias sentence, I stopped reading. We all now there would be no intelligent discussion only political rhetoric

    • Don 2

      This is how “esteemed” your favorite Gaystapo gal really is:

      In primetime, “The Rachael Maddow Show” posted all-time low August 2013 ratings in total and demo viewers, down -43% in total viewers and -47% in the A25-54 demographic, compared to August 2012, in the Nielson Live + Same Day data.

      MSNBC Down Double Digits – August 2013 Primetime(Mon.-Sun.) 520,000 Total Viewers/ 173,000 A25-54, and Total Day(Mon.-Sun.) 348,000 Total Viewers/119,000 A25-54.

      Now here’s a kicker that you and your ilk are going to really enjoy.

      Rush Limbaugh gets more listeners in any given 15 minute period of his 3-hour show in just New York, than MSNBC gets in viewers nationwide.

  • stanbyk1

    Words of wisdom from a man who, along with his cohorts, passes bills that they do not even know whats in them(see Obama care,for an example). As far as I am concerned, he and his ilk are the closest thing I have ever to an American Gestapo.

    The main culprit is the leader in the senate chambers and his name is———?

  • Dcp5674

    No, you flaming idiot, we think you, Reid, and your fellow progs are the ones screwing all Americans over, you pass unrealistic and downright illegal laws like Odumbocare. When is Nevada going to realize you don’t give a damn about Nevada. You want POWER, no matter what the cost to the average Americans. You can kiss my butt, and you know you’ll like it. You make Weiner look normal. American Gestapo is a good description for you and your lowlife senate companions. Lay off American citizens. 2014 is coming real quick, and when we emerge with the majority in the Senate and House, your butt will be swinging in the wind. And we will laugh.

    • Briylaln

      In 2014, we may end up with the majority – in numbers only. To many republicans that are also in it for the power and don’t give a damn about us, the country or the constitution.

    STOP making new laws, and passing bills nobody wants. Get a real job, we have enough laws and bills already. Get a real job, Mr Lawmaker. Stop sucking off the American people. Im not Tea Party, but I am fed up. We don’t want new laws to generate more money for your pockets. Stop making our lives harder with your BS laws. This isn’t Freedom. How can we have full time lawmakers?
    I liked the old laws better. Stop making worthless laws so you can hide your personal agendas in the massive paper work.

  • Cathy Hovey

    Hey, you know what? IF they’ve taken over Congress, then we ought to be able to get Obutthead impeached now, shouldn’t we? Cause we know the Republicans in the House will vote to impeach, but the Senate would stop it, cause it’s mostly Dumbocrats. But he’s saying the Tea Party has taken over, shouldn’t our dream of impeachment be able to go through now then?!
