What's next? Concentration camps?

To call the Tea Party Nazi's "Nazi's" is not an understatement.  Based on my recollection of the history of Germany in the 1930's, the tactics of today's Tea Party mimics how the National Socialists (how ironic, mentioning "Socialists" and the "Tea Party" in the same breath :) weaseled their way into power.  Intimidation, extortion, and blackmail worked for the Nazi's 80 years ago, and the Tea Party has revived their playbook today.  Will their opponents soon start mysteriously disappearing, too?

A small minority of ultra-radical Republicans (not to be confused with moderate, responsible, common-sense conservatives like myself) have even bullied Republican House Speaker John Boner into giving in to their threat to shut down the government in order to de-fund Obamacare.  Don't like Obamacare?  Fine, then fix it, but don't just take your toys and go home.  (Note:  Reverting to the status quo is NOT "fixing" healthcare.)

Boner told them shutting down the government was an irresponsible move, but they said he must get on board or they would crush him, too.  Boner caved.  He is no longer a leader but just their little puppet.

Pretty soon I fully expect to see these bastards combing their hair across their foreheads and growing little runny-nose moustaches.



  1. So if the Capitol is set on fire I guess we'll know who's really behind it. The only way to stop these people is for them to stop getting elected.

  2. These people got elected because Democrats were asleep on the job when the Republicans gerrymandered their districts so these Tea Party Republicans don't need to please anyone other than the radicals in their districts. Reagan raised the debt ceiling a dozen times and the Republicans didn't raise any objections, but today's Tea party Republicans would toss Reagan out into the cold.

  3. What Stephen said... In the eyes of the Tea Party, Reagan would be considered a liberal.

  4. I really don't understand American politics. Mind you, I don't understand Australian politics either.
