What Christopher Hitchens thinks of the Tea Party

What Christopher Hitchens thinks of the Tea Party

Stupid and silly, but dangerous grown-ups trying to deal with a very real anxiety, the decline of the United States and the white folk within. Christopher Hitchens put it rather better when he describes the "no-nothing isolationist" approach of the Tea Party.

As usual he quotes the very fringe,of which there are in all organizations. Is standing up for a fiscal responsible Govt. to live within it's means and taxation with representation stupid and immature?

The TEA party seems to be very loosely organized with a lot of people wrapping themselves in it's mantle to get a platform for their particular obsessions. Naturally the press and pundits hostile to limiting government focus on these people to try and tar anyone who'd just like some fiscal restraint with extremism and lunacy...It's all part of the game. Mrs. Thatcher did it masterfully to the British Labour party, making the most extreme wing appear to be the face of Labour to a whole generation.

If he hasn't seen anything as stupid as the TEA party before he just hasn't been paying much attention.

Latest comment: The Tea Party IS the fringe, that's the problem. It's well known that several white supremecy groups have taken up the mantle of the Tea Party as well, as it plays heavy on the racial undertones of these lunatics.

For want of a better, more succinct way to describe the Tea Party, 'stupid and immature' will do; and 'secret love child of Malcolm X'? That's just hysterical.

Where were you people during Bush's terms? NOW you come out of the hidey-hole? It took 8 years. Let's give it 4 to come out even. Your "fiscal" argument holds no water. The US govt has NEVER lived within its means except under Clinton. We already have taxation with representation--WTH are you talking about? Didn't you vote for your Congressperson? THAT's who is reperesenting you, THAT's who is holding the pursestrings...not the President. Duh.
