It took me a few weeks to get around to it, but I finally had the opportunity to watch the new documentary by my old friend Doc Thompson featuring the origins and validation of the TEA Party movement which began during the Bush administration and exploded under President Obama. Now 14 years of deficit spending that is a train wreck in American history the TEA Party has risen as a direct response to the irresponsible nature of government. The documentary is very good and even better, it is free. Doc and his producer Skip LeCombe put a lot of effort into the enterprise and are offering it for mass viewing. They are asking for donations, but the heartfelt documentary can be seen in its entirety at the following link:

    At 3 minutes into the first video, I clicked it off, when the guy in the middle began whining about the cost of the War on Terror.

    While concerns about financial matters are certainly legitimate, I have seen far too much white nationalism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, and all around general bigotry among the leaders of the Tea Party to have any shred of respect for the movement.

    They claim to be the party of freedom and fiscal responsibility, but only the second part of that is true. In actuality, they are the party of fiscal responsibility, which is good, but they couple it with the evils of white nationalism and Christian theocracy. They are driving us toward the same sort of tyrannical and oppressive government that was established by the Nationalist Party in South Africa under the leadership of Dr. Hendrik Verwoerd. That is not what America needs. Not now. Not ever.

      South Africa? Not even close. I would say they lean toward traditional values instead of all the phobias mentioned. Having value for family friendly traditions does not make people members of a "Nationalist Party.

        The "values" expressed by the leadership of the Tea Party are virtually indistinguishable from the polices practiced by the Nationalist Party. Perhaps you ought to read some history about South Africa?

          I have, and it's not close. And the Tea Party doesn't have a leadership base. They rotate in and out of position just to take care of administrative issues. When they get tired of that role, they switch out. That's the way the government was supposed to be. And if you watch that video you will see that it is not a "white" nationalist movement in the least.

          Perhaps you should read some history of Africa, first. You can start with Nigeria.

          They may be indistinguishable by you (again, cite examples, or else you're just blowing hot anal gasses).

          The bigotry involving the Tea Party is between your chair and monitor. You are projecting YOUR bigotry against the culture and values which A) built America and B) reject your appetite for deviancy.

      I call BS.

      Cite examples. Otherwise it's BS.
      You want to see bigotry, attend a gay pride event.

      What you call "white nationalism" I call the anglo-saxon-derived American culture, which can, and has, been embraced by all races, and *is* the historic basis of, and cause for the success of, the United States.

      "White" is a color, not a nation.

      what you call "homophobia" and "transphobia", I call, "sanity".

      Again, cite examples of what you have seen.

      There is no Tea PARTY, as it's a movement, not a party, so the second half of your statement is BS, as well. The Tea Party supports liberty, not license (which you mislabel "freedom").
