    anti-tax organization that sprung up independent of the Koch Brothers, Dick Armey, et al is an absolute, bullshit, disproven lie... propagating that lie here on Daily Kos is clearly a violation of site rules...

    Citing Wikipedia will get you laughed off this site as well...

    •  So will ratings abuse..... (4+ / 0-)

      First, no one said any of those things here.  No one here said anything at all in defense of the Tea Party.  

      VClib is not defending the Tea Party, or saying you shouldn't say how vile they are, he just thinks it is insensitive to use a recent terrorist attack in such a characterization.  And he's entitled to that opinion.

      And whatever vile things might be true of some of the tea party members and associated groups, it is nonetheless true that the movement as a whole was originally mainly "about reducing government spending" and did not endorse terrorism.

      In any case, since pretty much all of the participants in this discussion have been long time trusted users with more mojo than I've got, I doubt any of them will be laughed off the site anytime soon.  But I think you all should be able to disagree on things like this without it becoming a ratings war.    

      •  The vast majority of Teabaggers' taxes... (0+ / 0-)

        Went down, not up… Therefore the whole notion of "taxed enough already" is bullshit… Therefore the notion that the tea party is an anti-tax group is bullshit… Just because they (and Wikipedia) say they are does not make it so… Therefore the comment propagated right wing, Teabagger bullshit and was rightfully hidden…

        "Abuse?" I don't happen to think so, and apparently I'm not alone…
