Fear And Loathing Of The Tea Party


With all that’s going on in America and in the world it’s a shame that yet another article defending the Tea Party movement needs to be written. But three incidents over the last couple of weeks prove that the corrupt, unfounded and ridiculous notion that people who oppose the actions of an increasingly fascist regime and a corporatist Congress are fomenting terror continues to gain traction.

First it was an item sent to the website, Patriot Post, from a military source. That source provided a briefing paper for an upcoming exercise at Ft. Knox, Ky., that sought to prepare for a possible protest at the Ft. Knox, United States Gold Depository by “Local Militia Groups/Anti-Government Protesters/TEA Party.”

The paper, entitled “Exercise” and dated April 23, stated:

“TEA Party organizers have stated that they will protest at the Gold Vault at a future date. Mint Police are on a heightened alert status to deal with a large crowd on the grounds. Anti-Government-Health Care Protesters have stated that they would join the TEA Party as a sign of solidarity.

“Threats against the US Bullion Depository and Fort Knox have been made. Type of event is unknown, except that it will be ‘significant.’ The ‘significant’ event is a concern to local and Federal Law Enforcement Organizations, as these groups are armed, have combat training and some are former Military Snipers. Some may have explosives training/experience.”

A follow-up intel update paper, dated April 26, warned of viable threats “against the US Bullion Depository and Ft. Knox.” It stated:

“Many members were extremely agitated at what they referred to as Government Intervention and over taxation in Their (sic) lives. Alcohol use ‘fanned the flames’. (sic) Many Military grade firearms were openly carried. An ad hoc “shoot the Govt. Agent” event was held with prizes (alcohol) given for the best shot placement. Components for bomb making are reported to have been on the site. Some members have criminal records relating to explosive and weapons violations.

“Also (sic)
In defiance to (sic) Regulations, the TEA Party Activists along with Anti-Health Care Demonstrators have stated that they will protest at the US Bullion Depository, ‘Stating that it is their right to demonstrate against the Government for redress of wrongs.’

“Local detention centers are being made ready for mass arrests.”

After Patriot Post’s Mark Alexander wrote about the exercise and posted the two intel updates on his site he was contacted by senior command staff at Ft. Knox. Alexander then wrote:

“There was a security exercise at Ft. Knox this week, but an officer in the security loop altered the scenario ‘in order to make it look more realistic.’ Those alterations were described in my essay, exactly as they appeared. The command staff informed me that the alterations were not approved at the command level and that the individual who circulated the scenario through official channels will ‘receive appropriate counsel.’ I was assured that Command staff would not have authorized such a scenario.”

Alexander also wrote that he removed the two intel reports* from his site at the request of Command staff.

The second incident occurred in Quincy, Ill., on April 28. With President Barack Obama arriving to speak nearby on the subject of Wall Street greed, the Quincy Tea Party was out in force. The gray haired grannies and grandpas were all ramped up and armed—with signs and a bullhorn or two—to protest the president’s visit. While they stood peacefully on the sidewalk, a police riot squad—decked out in helmets with face masks and other heavy protective gear—marched in lockstep in the street in front of them, ordering them back on the sidewalk. It was an obvious—and utterly ridiculous—attempt at intimidation from the regime.

The third was a quote by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in the days after a car bomb was found and defused in Times Square. Rather than point the finger toward the obvious choice—Muslim extremist followers of radical Islam—Bloomberg told CBS’s Katie Couric: “If I had to guess—25 cents—this would be exactly that, somebody home-grown, maybe a mentally deranged person or somebody with a political agenda that doesn’t like the health care bill or something. It could be anything.” [Emphasis added]

This is how the regime quashes dissent. It started as soon as the Tea Party began to grow a little more than a year ago, with those who head up the regime calling Americans names like Nazi, un-American, radical and dangerous. Leftist groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center (better described as the Southern Preposterous Lie Center) used their typical tactics of linking Tea partiers with Skinheads, the Ku Klux Klan and the militia movement.

The sycophantic Obama-fawning media followed suit by associating a disgusting homosexual practice called tea-bagging with people who were exercising their uniquely American right of free speech and peaceful assembly. (If you need to find out what tea-bagging is, Google it.)

These terms and messages spread through the blogosphere and are now in common usage by liberals and progressives.

Using such derogatory terms about their fellow citizens provides leftists, progressives and fascists an air of superiority. It allows them to dehumanize those they disagree with, which then gives them the justification to oppose them. But in doing so they only belittle themselves. They show themselves as devoid of morals, ideas and class—without the ability to engage in rational discussion.

Much like when the President—with his smug elitist arrogance—told an audience: “So I’ve been a little amused over the last couple of days where people have been having these rallies about taxes. You would think they would be saying thank you.”

Not hardly, Mr. President. Not hardly. And you are not so dumb that you don’t know why they’re protesting. And we know why you, your fawning media acolytes and the elitist corporatist elected class in Washington (from both the Left and Right and hereafter known as the collective “They”) treat Tea partiers with such arrogant disdain.

They do it because They fear the Tea Party protestors are a threat to their power. They understand that their policies are opposed by the majority of Americans who have finally… finally awakened to their abuses.

And Tea partiers, They fear you because they understand their big money donations from their corporate sponsors, the illegal votes that community organizations like the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) drum up, and the thuggish activities of the unions will not be enough to overcome your moral drive and determination.

A recent poll by Gallup found that 28 percent of those surveyed identified with the Tea Party movement. That means you number in the dozens of millions—despite the attacks on your movement. Understand that is a large number, no matter what They say. Although Tea partiers skew right politically, its members broke out demographically much like the rest of the U.S.

That means that Tea partiers are husbands and wives, grandfathers and grandmothers. That means Tea partiers are homemakers and business owners. That means Tea partiers are blue collar workers and white collar workers. That means Tea partiers are employed and unemployed. That means Tea partiers are veterans of World War II, Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf Wars, and military operations in between. And it means Tea partiers are self-reliant.

And that’s what They fear. Tea partiers aren’t ready to bow down to the altar of big government like so many of the elitists want and expect… and have sought to foster for these many years.

But if the regime has managed to convince—without any evidence or any instances of violence—even some in the military that it is “realistic” to pose Tea partiers as dangerous and that opposition to a government takeover of the economy and the businesses that made America prosperous is evidence of a crime worthy of imprisonment in local detention centers, then it’s not just the Tea partiers who need to worry.

(Editor’s note: To prove their existence screen shots of the intel papers posted on Patriot Post have been saved, but Personal Liberty Digest will respect command staff’s request that they not be posted.)
