  •  I support the tea partier's right to protest. (4+ / 0-)

    It saddens me that you don't. Why the hell would I care about a bunch of morons that can't spell the word moron?

    •  I'm not sure Diane was referring (5+ / 0-)

      to supporting their right to protest.  I think we all support freedom of speech here. I think Diane objected to the Tea Party message.

      I think Diane was saying that just because they are "protesters" doesn't make them worthy of support.

    •  because they're a made-to-order (5+ / 0-)

      disinformed constituency working for the 1% and wall street. and if you are at all active on progressive/liberal/democratic issues they're the ones in the way- the ones who delay action on global warming and reforms we need and, for instance, why we have the ACA instead of single payer, and why we still have shit heads in congress trying to make women and brown and poor people second class citizens.

      Why the hell would I care about a bunch of morons that can't spell the word moron?
      and most of them are morons because morons on the left give 1200 coordinated radio stations a free speech free ride.

      This is a list of 76 universities for Rush Limbaugh that endorse global warming denial, racism, sexism, and GOP lies by broadcasting sports on over 170 Limbaugh radio stations.

      •  even those (deluded) people get to protest (0+ / 0-)

        if they want to. And if the Koch Brothers stop paying for their transportation and snacks, that's OK too.

        Who do you suggest make up a list of acceptable protest movements? Kos? Maduro? Darth Cheney?

        •  no one said they couldn't protest- but (0+ / 0-)

          their legitimacy as feedback to move democracy and elected representatives is given too much weight even by many on the left.

          what is seldom factored in, certainly not by trad media and usually by many on the left, is that they are the product of classic psyops the CIA would be proud of.

          the number of issues that large majorities of american public agree on that are derailed by the well disinformed talk radio base is pathetic.

          it's not about opinions on how a country should be run or who should be taxed what, etc., we have a major US political party that officially denies global warming is real.

          while minority rights need to be protected, that minority is the product of a well coordinated propaganda operation that only works because the left continues to ignore the talk radio monopoly working this country over for the 1%.
