Reid Keeps Whining About Anarchists In Congress

September 13, 2013 by  

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.”
