Tea Party, R.I.P.

Filed under: Uncategorized — ronrosenbaumwriter @ 2:26 pm

Whoever wins or loses on the health care bill, and as I write there hasn’t been a vote yet, the Big, Big Loser this weekend of Washington drama was the Tea Party. The whole world was watching them spitting, hurling racial slurs, strutting around with posters threatening gun violence, acting just the way I’ve portrayed them in my posts over the past month. A mob of cruel and selfish ignoramuses. I shouldn’t have been surprised considering the quality of the comments TP defenders leave. But I think the cruelty was the final straw for me. Hurling contempt and dollar bills at the poor guy with Parkinson’s disease at some demo in the midwest.

You know why you’ve lost TPers? It’s because for all the hatred you mustered for the health care bill, for Obama, you demonstrated not the slightest care for the less fortunate among us. You only cared about your own pocketbook. You never offered any alternative plan for those who don’t have a health care safety net. The only ones your were looking out for were yourselves. It showed,

Anyway time’s up TPers. It may not be immediate, but it’s going to happen. The Tea Party has exposed itself, so to speak. The racial epithets the threats of gun violence, the thuggish mob hysteria.. America s just going to reject it, the way a healthy immune system rejects a virus. The only question is which pundits go on the record dissociating themselves from this sick episode in American politics, really something out of Weimar Germany. And which will be content to forever be identified with them.

  1. I take the time to respond to Mr. Rosenbaum because I believe that lies, ignorance, and cowardice should always be opposed and corrected if possible. I attended the rally in D.C. on Saturday and witnessed none of the racial incidents that Mr. R or the MSM claim to have happened. Big Government even has video proof that the incident with Rep. Lewis did not happen.

    It is clear that Mr. Rosenbaum has never attend a Tea Party event. I am sure it is because he is too intellectual and elitist to bother with us common people. His prissy demeanor and pathetic ranting would not mix well with the actual person who works hard for a living in the oil fields or on the police force. He would rather carp from the sidelines and write his sophist commentary about those who actually move the country forward.

    Leftist acadamia is a smug place to sit and judge others. I just wished you had the guts to get out of your ivory tower do something constructive. People like you make me sick. You contribute nothing positive to the debate you just attack others. You can build nothing. All you can do is destroy. You sieze upon isolated incidents – if they happened at all – and you then use McCarthiate tactics to paint everyone with the same brush. You are an elitist bigot and you should be ashamed of yourself. Since your cowardice will never give me the satisfaction of saying so to your face, I must be content to know that inside you loathe yourself more than anyone else.

    May the other readers – the one or two who still read your stuff – forgive the ad hominem attack but, since it is Mr. Rosenbaum’s stock and trade, I wanted to give as good as those silent hardworking common people get from him at every turn.

  2. “The only question is which pundits go on the record dissociating themselves from this sick episode in American politics, really something out of Weimar Germany. And which will be content to forever be identified with them.”

    Well, why don’t you ask your coworkers if they’ll disassociate themselves?

    And what makes the Tea Party so special?

    Were you this concerned about the Peace movement?

    Remember silence implies concent.

  3. “The whole world was watching them spitting, hurling racial slurs, strutting around with posters threatening gun violence, acting just the way I’ve portrayed them in my posts over the past month.”

    Except there isn’t any evidence any of that happened. In fact, the image you claim shows the latter isn’t even on your previous post, no one heard the racial slurs except partisans who will benefit most from it (and there’s audio proving nothing of what you’ve claimed), and if there was any actual evidence of spitting, there’d be spit on someone.

    Where is it?

    “All you can do is destroy.”

    And he’s doing a piss poor job of that, he’s got nothing.

    If there was anything to any of it, he’d have something.

    If he even had anything, he’d still have to show the miscreants were not ACORN/SEIU thugs under false flags, and then that the people were as much as tolerated by the other Tea Partiers.

    He’s not even to square one, he’s got nothing.

    Shakespear’s bit about strutting the stage comes to mind.

    Sound and fury.

    And yet nothing.

  4. I could care less about “racial epithets” when Louis Farrakhan lives in a trailer next to David Duke, instead of his mansion bigger than Oprah’s. I could care less about epithets when Rev. Wright has built a $5 million mansion overlooking a private golf course.

    Tea Partiers represent the vast majority of the White population, working and middle class, that does not want to pay for illegal aliens health care, or the Black Ghettos. Certainly not in a time of deep recession when Whites are first fired and last hired. When jobs go overseas, because of Health Care costs, I could care less about moralistic posturing by hard left Rich yuppies out of Curb Your Enthusiasm.

    Why exactly do my sick relatives have to die, denied health care because they are too old, or too sick, and too White, to give free health care to an illegal alien? Please explain why I care if some status-driven Yuppie calls me racist?

    As an objective measure, Blacks are the most racist group in America. Farrakhan rakes in millions, out of a population that is 12.5% of America, and 60% of that is the Urban Ghetto (below the Federal poverty line). Rev. Wright the same. Meanwhile David Duke lives in deserved penury in a trailer park in Monroe LA. La Raza’s official slogan is “for those inside the race, everything, for those outside the race, nothing.”

    Government now picks life’s total winners and losers. Who gets health care, and who goes without. Also in this bill is a federal takeover of student loans, so the Government determines which kids go to College (rich White kids like Rosenbaum’s relatives, Black and Hispanic kids) and who does not (ordinary White kids who get boxed out by a racial spoils system). Moreover, as Joe Hicks noted in Pajamas Media, Medical Schools have to make Blacks and Hispanics preferred over White (and Asian) candidates, even if they inevitably lower their standards. Right now Blacks are 4% of the doctors according to the AMA, matching roughly the 5% of the middle class Black population.

    Making your Doctor be Dr. Dre instead of Doctor House means standards so low even the majority Black and Hispanic population (Ghetto/Barrio) can pass them. I’m sure Ron Rosenbaum would if it was his life at stake want the best Doctor not merely the most Black or Hispanic.

    I would have preferred a small government keeping itself from picking life’s winners and losers, on inevitably a racial basis. But that’s not to be, so I want (and every non-super-Rich White person wants the same now) a White Majority population, by whatever means necessary, and White government officials particularly the President. Since people will cleave by race and be “race men” like of course Obama.

    At stake is what medical care I get to save my life, or get denied so some Illegal Alien gets free health care. I can’t afford, literally, nor can any White person not super-rich, not to have a White Majority because the loser in population will be denied resources. Its naked spoils politics.

    Nor do I feel the least bit of guilt. The First Black President and the First Black Attorney General dismissed charges against Black Panther thugs after they pled guilty to intimidating White voters in Philly. Blacks from the OJ trial onwards, through the beating of Reginald Denny, the Knoxville Horror, the and the Duke LaCrosse case behaved in an appallingly racist manner. The standard is “that’s OK we are
    Black.”

    OK. Its my life at stake. Therefore I have to be the winner in the racial spoils politics.

    Rosenbaum saying the Tea Parties are “racist” is irrelevant. He’s likely to see Whites SIMPLY NOT CARE about being called “racist.”

  5. Ron,

    Why have you not published the video links I provided in a subsequent post that proved the events you cited did not occur?

    Here they are again. Please note that I have contact Pajamas Media about your decision to admit the post.

  6. I find it interesting that the Weimar Republic was cited. What replaced it in Berlin was much worse, just as the move from the Czarist government in St. Petersburg, Russia to Lenin and crew in Moscow, Russia.

    None so blind as those who refuse to see.

    Beware the intolerance of those who preach tolerance.

  7. (sigh) Same song, second verse, Ron.

    Remember how, just a year ago, lefty pundits all over were forecasting the end of the Republican Party?

    And then, lo and behold, they start winning special elections in formerly “blue” places like New Jersey and Massachusetts.

    All due respect to the Bard of Avon, I think a more apt quote is one from George Santayana: “Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”

  8. For anyone interested, the websites for RedState and Big Goverment both refute these allegations with video evidence. Since Mr. Rosenbaum will not publish the links, please go there for more information.

    Mr. Rosenbaum, for intellectual honesty and integrity, I expect a retraction.

  10. More malevolent ignorance from Ron. This piece drips with his hatred. There has to be someone on the left of decency and good will that can contribute here. This guy is worthless. Its the same Alinskyite spew the left has been using for decades to attempt to paint political rivals as “the other” and sub human.

    I have spent time around the tea party participants and they are by and large very decent, patriotic people. For this reason, the left must use any tool possible to distort and deceive. They latch onto anyone – no matter how far out of the group’s mainstream – to demagogue the whole thing. No doubt the left is planting people in an attempt to discredit.

    The bottom line is that these people understand far better than Ron that socialism and statism mean the destruction of our country and represents decline in the human condition.

  11. Kipling you will get nothing from Ron.

    As I’ve said before, Ron doesn’t care what you think. You can agree with him, or be part of the “problem. Even silence renders you in the “bad camp.”

    No if you expect a retraction you’ll have to use the “Contact Us” link at the bottom of the page. Be polite but explain your concerns about the degradation of PJM standards and civility.

    Note that we’re not allowed ad hominem attacks (Rule 3) but Ron is.

  12. By Ron’s logic, if someone on the Left doesn’t repudiate his hate-filled rants, then the entire Left is guilty of the disgusting smear campaign he’s been running at PJM lately.

    Don’t kid yourself.

    RR understands, just as well as the tea party participants do, that socialism and statism mean the destruction of our country, and represents decline in the human condition.

    The destruction of our country, and decline in the human condition, are what he desires.

  14. Reply to Jack @13: Could not agree with you more. I already contacted Pajamas Media using the email contained in the Guidelines posted above. I pointed out his unwillingness to post the video links I mentioned. I also pointed out that he violated Pajamas Medias own guidelines about Ad Hominem attacks.

    I encourage everyone on this thread to do the same.

  15. Let’s say 5, 10 or even 20 people (I’ll err on the side of being generous) yelled repugnant epithets out of a group of thousands of people. Should I judge an entire group people of (people who are protesting a HUGE bill that will allow government to control our very lives and lower the quality of our medicine and doctors) by a handful of unruly cretins?

    I’ve listened to this video five times now and strained to hear anything resembling the ‘n-word’ and I heard one word that sounded so garbled I couldn’t be sure what the guy was yelling over the crowd of people and I certainly didn’t see spitting:

    Congressional Black Caucus 3 20 2010

    By the by, telling someone that calling names is bad by calling them names kind of negates the point.

  16. What I love is how transparent Ron is.

    In some posts he goes the full concern troll. He doesn’t hate the Tea Party; he just wants to understand them; he wants to show them the error of their ways, give them a chance to repent. In others it’s full out Two Minute Hate.

    Sometimes the Tea Party is a tiny pathetic group that has no power and will soon die, in others it’s a titan that infects one party and has cowed the other. Similar to how Scott Brown is an infectee one week then the next he’s an independent hope.

    But what can you expect?

    Ron calls you illiterate while making frequent and laughable typos: Calue!

    He calls you ignorant while refusing to read what’s published on this very site. For a man that seeks to “understand” the Tea Party, he doesn’t have to go very far.

    He calls you paranoid while fantasizing that the Tea Party will cause more autism cases and that they’re part of some sinister Neo Southern Strategy.

    He calls you hateful and uncivil while repeal indulging in a constant stream of childish insults.

    He calls you cowardly while he refuses to confront the “Tea Party enablers” one hyperlink away from him.

    I’ve said it before but it is worth repeating: If Ron really believed that the Tea Party was the hateful danger that it is, he would openly challenge PJM CEO. He’d throw down the gauntlet at Pajama’s support of the Tea Party movement. At the very least he’d demand a debate with one of the other PJM editors.

    If he’s worth anything, yes.

  18. Tom: Indeed.

    In the next post. Ron is blaming the Tea Party for any future presidential assassination.

    If he really thought that, how can he write on this site? How can he do anything but demand that this Tea Party enabling portal be removed to prevent it from causing tragedy?

  19. Give ’em hell, Perk. Is Ron a JINO who hates Israel? Or is he a shegitz who hates Israel. Either way, like his hero the Pres., Ron is against allies of decades and in support of enemies of decades. Ron is certainly a man of deep feeling and caring, in other words a librul. But one must pick sides, must one not?

  21. “You know why you’ve lost TPers?”

    Surely. It’s because the government has an army, and the Tea Party guys don’t.

    Therefore, the Tea Party guys ARE going to pay taxes, pure and simple.

    It’s about naked force…and that’s all it’s about.

  22. Fox News checked with the Capitol Hill Police and they confirmed that the incident Rep. Lewis and Ron Rosenbaum claimed to have happened was never reported to them and is not under investigation. The Capitol Hill Police put the lie to Mr. Lewis’ claim that the man who spit on him was arrested.

    As a participant in the protests on Saturday, I demand a retraction from Mr. Rosenbaum and encourage the management at Pajamas Media to maintain the integrity of their site by seeing that Mr. Rosenbaum issue the retraction.

  24. TPers didn’t offer an alternative plan for a safety net because for a safety net to work you need government tyranny. Ron Rosenbaum loves tyranny, so long as it’s for the “less fortunate” as he defines them. He can’t comprehend that anyone would oppose it. They must be selfish. TPers are all racist because of a few assholes. I guess the Dems are all part of the Klan. Thanks, Byrd.
