I was talking to a liberal friend yesterday on the phone who told me that the Tea Party movement “hates black people.” I guess my friend missed the memo: The Tea Party movement is no longer racist because…they’re crazy! Or, if you’re John Kerry…they’re dumb.
A new report from the Culture and Media Institute shows a widespread media attack on the Tea Party and its candidates’ sanity, something the report’s author, Nathan Burchfiel, told The Daily Caller is most likely a result of the left’s inability to form a legitimate argument against the Tea Party.
“It [calling Tea Partiers crazy] is a way to distract from the issues,” Burchfiel said. “It’s the same thing with the racist argument: You try to paint them as racists so you don’t have to talk about the issues.”
The reason why the mathematically-challenged Bill Maher and his friends in the media are having a hard time dismissing the Tea Party movement is that, despite a rotting education system, there are still enough old people who can look at numbers and discern what they mean. Take, for example, any number of entitlement programs. The nation simply can’t fulfill the promises politicians have been making for years. Entitlement programs are on autopilot, and it doesn’t matter who’s in control of Congress—it’s going to get worse unless we get serious about reform. Quickly.
The racist theory has been tried for years by people who, for whatever reason, don’t have a grasp of the issues. The person making the charge seeks to convince you that they’re somehow a living, breathing version of The X-Men’s Professor X. He or she can read minds and pull motives from the recesses of his opposition’s mind, and if you just believe in Liberal Professor X everything will be all right. That worked in the past, but these days it’s harder to do because a tsunami of retiring baby boomers have forced smart people to crunch the numbers. And they’re not pretty.
Bill Maher is now on record as saying that “European Socialism works.” How can anyone take him seriously? Even the Europeans don’t believe that any more. Europe is a sad, lost, cultural husk that’s blowing around on the international landscape. It’s looking for an identity, and right now the only people who are actively trying to shape one for them have a predilection towards violence when you disagree with them.
When the election results come in, don’t say I didn’t try and warn you Bill.
