MooPig Publishing Corner Department :: "Tea Party, Lost in Translation"

From Austin TX :: "John Evans on the Tea Party"
By John Evans via faceBook  |  Mar 7, 2014  |  Austin TX

Snappy! — with John Evans at Down Under Restaurant.

John Evans

" ... Funny how the "tea party" started out with the idea that it was all about taxes, "taxation without representation", etc. ... and how it has mutated into the same tired old right wing crap... just more vicious and obvious than typical old GOP stuff.

" ... Is this born out of the right wing religious fundamentalists' panic at how Christianity is losing ground, "losing control" in our country? With the GOP, as usual, preying on these collective fears?

" ... Someone once said the purpose of religion is to keep the poor from killing the rich. If that is true, then it's no small wonder the GOP pushes Christianity the way it does, and marries it to repressive economic policies and hateful, punitive proposals... so their double-dumbass "base" is taught that these vicious sentiments are compatible with what Jesus taught.

" ... I will never believe the "tea party" was a grass roots movement... I will always believe it was AstroTurf'd, all the way, and now thanks to un-American "people" like the Koch Brothers, we have this political Frankenstein. Not sure what the best way is to destroy the monster, but maybe if its members just keep talking and spouting opinions we'll see them fade out of existence.
(Evans, John. 16 hours ago) ..."

Patrick Darnell Wow, John ... nice essay. I might steal and publish [under your name of course].
