Tea Partiers cheer the deaths of the uninsured. This is after they cheered executions and booed Ron Paul for his claim that not all Muslims are responsible for 9/11.
If this doesn’t show the true character of the Tea Party, nothing will.
And there’s the footage! Oh my goodness, the disgusting look of “Who cares” on his face.
I’m under attack all the time. They call me gay, there are death threats. There are times where I’m not thinking as clearly as I should, and in those unclear moments, I always think to myself, ‘Fire the first shot.’ Bring it on. Because I know who’s on our side. They can only win a rhetorical and propaganda war. They cannot win. We outnumber them in this country, and we have the guns. I’m not kidding. They talk a mean game, but they will not cross that line because they know what they’re dealing with.
And I have people who come up to me in the military, major named people in the military, who grab me and they go, ‘Thank you for what you’re doing, we’ve got your back.’ They understand that. These are the unspoken things we know, they know.
Andrew Breitbart, fantasizing about starting a civil war and killing liberals at a Boston Tea Party event.
I’d like to compare and contrast for a second. Conservatives got all riled up over Teamster President Jimmy Hoffa’s comments on Labor Day. At a rally in Detroit, he said, “President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. And President Obama we want one thing: Jobs. Jobs. Jobs. Jobs. Jobs. Jobs. Jobs. Jobs. That’s what we’re going to tell him. He’s going to be - and when he sees what we’re doing here he will be inspired. But he needs help and you know what? Everybody here’s got to vote. If we go back and keep the eye on the prize, let’s take these sons of bitches out and give America back to America where we belong!”
So he’s talking about voting anti-union politicians out of office. Conservatives self-righteously condemned his remarks as “thuggery” and “hate speech.” Tea Party Express leader Amy Kremer said, “It is high time that elected leaders like President Obama were held accountable when their key supporters engage in harmful and divisive rhetoric.” Well, I think Breitbart’s quite clear, particularly when he says, “We outnumber them in this country and we have the guns…”
Penn Bullock at Towleroad writes, “On the face of it, Breitbart’s admission demands a congressional or criminal investigation. If he’s implying that military officials have pledged their armed support to him and the right-wing, those officials are guilty of treason. If Breitbart is lying, he’s diagnosable.” I’d agree. If (and that’s a big IF) he’s telling the truth, those “military officials” are supporting armed insurrection against the American government and its people. The military tends to frown on its members doing that.
Watch the video of Breitbart’s remarks here. So, how long before Breitbart gets on Fox News and whines about it being taken out of context? Hoffa’s comment was taken out of context. This isn’t. This is talking about bullets v. ballot boxes and the bullets winning.
That’s an intelligent way to respond to random death threats, threaten to kill liberals in a bloody war. This is a very clear and very direct threat unlike any I’ve ever seen. Conservatives love to make gun and violence based political statements but yeah for the most part it’s just to rally the base, this however is something else, this is “I can’t wait till I can shoot a liberal that called me names with the military behind me.”
I’m reblogging this because if this doesn’t frighten you then you aren’t paying attention.
It scares me to know that there are people who glorify the death of others based on their political ideology and it scares me that he is not the only one.
You wanna add another candidate? It’s like the Republican primary is like a season of American Idol in reverse, where every week, you just add another idiot. …First you guys wanted (Michele) Bachmann, then (Rick) Perry — now (Chris) Christie? You know what, Republican base? Meet me at camera three!
(To camera three.) Have you ever considered the possibility that maybe your candidates aren’t the problem — maybe it’s you? You’re hard to please or figure out! You’re unrealistic! I mean, you’re pro-life, yet — (rolls tape of GOP members applauding Texas’s death penalty) — what was that? You’re afraid of ‘death panels,’ yet for uninsured coma patients — (rolls tape of GOP members shouting ‘YEAH!!!’ when Ron Paul was asked if a patient without health insurance should be allowed to die) — that’s the crowd: ‘YEAH!!!’ You guys ‘support the troops’ — well except for Captain Creatine over here (rolls tape of gay U.S. Army soldier who asked GOP candidates if they’d repeal DADT — and was booed by GOP debate crowd).
It’s like the Republican base is at war with its own talking points: ‘I want someone who’s gonna cut taxes — and balance the budget! Someone who’s a skilled orator — that doesn’t talk all fancy! The child of poor immigrants — who will build a fence to keep them out of this country! Someone who’s strong enough for a man — but Ph-balanced for a woman!
…It’s like your ideal candidate is a rare, super-heavy element that can only exist in a particular particle accelerator. And even then, only for a fraction of a second. Before you all remember how much you hate science.
You guys need to take a long, hard look in the mirror, and not come away thinking ‘Hey, there’s something wrong with this mirror.’

I could not be more excited about all the options in the GOP presidential field. These candidates are like the perfect appetizer sampler platter. You’ve got pizza bites (Cain); crazy bread (Bachmann); boiled potato (Gingrich); Texas toast (Perry); foie gras (Romney); imitation foie gras (Hunstman); uninspected squirrel jerky (Paul); all with a Santorum dipping sauce.
How Fox,CNN,MSNBC will try to steal the election from Ron Paul in Iowa (by TheRonPaulAffect)
I agree with him on a couple things; the war in the middle east, and the war on drugs.
Aside from that, he’s a disaster, much like all the republicans. I don’t know if there’s a republican who’s not too much of an asshole.
I don’t think Jon Huntsman is a disaster, but I wouldn’t vote for him. And no one seems to be talking about him, which sucks because (in my opinion) he appears to be the least outrageous GOP candidate. :/
