Negative Tea Party talk continues; now branded “the real enemy”

posted at 6:05 pm on August 23, 2011 by Tina Korbe

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) was at it again at a townhall meeting in Florida Monday — but this time she had help from Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.). The meeting in Miami was a part of a five-city tour to draw attention to high unemployment among the black community and featured Democratic members of the Congressional Black Caucus, plus Jesse Jackson and others. The presenters were tripping over themselves to out-attack the Tea Party:

“The real enemy is the Tea Party –- let’s remember that,” said Rep. Frederica Wilson of Miami Gardens, host of the meeting and jobs fair. “The Tea Party holds Congress hostage … They have one goal in mind, and that’s to make President Obama a one-term president.”

She got energetic applause from the crowd of hundreds at Mt. Hermon AME Church in Miami Gardens. So did Rep. Maxine Waters of California, who recently said the tea party should “Go straight to hell.”

“I’m in church. I’m not going to repeat that,” Waters said Monday.

She also said: “We have to stand up and fight. It’s fight time…We’re not afraid of the tea party…In this struggle, we have to define who we are, what the president is doing and not let our voices be overshadowed by the tea party.” …

For his part, the Rev. Jesse Jackson said the Tea Party should be called “the Fort Sumter Tea Party that sought to maintain states’ rights and slavery.”

Truly, it’s tiresome to continue to document these atrociously irresponsible statements on the part of legislators and activists — but, as long as folks continue to say them, I’ll continue to document them because they reveal a blind prejudice where the Tea Party is concerned. Wilson’s comment is especially telling. She thinks the extent of the Tea Party’s ambition is the ousting of Barack Obama. But what the Tea Party envisions is no more and no less than a solution to the nation’s growth-of-government-spending problem. True, based on his past record and his insistence on the passage of a fourth entitlement program that will astronomically increase our debt, Obama doesn’t appear to be the president to make that Tea Party dream come true — so, yes, Tea Partiers will work to vote him out. But the Tea Party’s opposition to Obama doesn’t stand abjectly — it’s driven by actual principles and desired policies.

The irony is that if Republicans acted like this all the time by whining, insulting and name calling every day, the Republicans Party’s numbers would go down the toilet. But when Democrats do it, it’s actually ok for some reason. I think it is hurting them in the long run. You can’t keep using the race card and still be taken seriously.

The Tea Party is no more than the embodiment of the principle of sustainable government, which requires that we live within our means. Anyone who’s against this is an enemy of a most basic morality — don’t take more than your share. We’re going to crash. The Tea Party is just letting us know, so we can prepare. Those who hate the Tea Party mean to close their eyes to the future that’s staring us all in the face.

Maxine and Frederica this is obviously a bigger fight than your small minds and narrow views can comprehend.

Rep. Frederica Wilson’s Miami Gardens, FL is a nice, middle class looking community – that is a hellhole. Check the murder rate.

The Miami Gardens churches that Waters, Wilson, (ahem….REVEREND) Jackson et al. appeared at have a lot more pressing issues at hand than Tea Party hate.

You mean he’s not smart and articulate enough to do that himself? How many times has he been on TV trying to do just that, and people aren’t buying it anymore?

and not let our voices be overshadowed by the tea party.”

So your plan is to attempt to overshadow the voices of the Tea Party by referring to them as “the real enemy”? And, if the Tea Party is “the real enemy” does that mean they shouldn’t have a voice at all?

Please, keep talking.

It seems that both Obama and the Tea Party have the same goal, to make him a one term president. Otherwise , if Obama really wanted to be a two term President, then Obama would be abandoning his prior socialist policies which are being soundly and overwhelmingly rejected by the American people, and Obama would be moving to the center as Clinton did, between 1994-1996. He would then find more support from tea partiers and independents from this about face and this facing of reality, and might even squeak by in 2012. Of course the latter scenario would require Obama not to be a socialist ideologue, but the “pragmatist” his media toadies claim he is.

eaglewingz08 on August 23, 2011 at 6:52 PM

You starve the children, close their schools, then fire all the teachers, furlough the policemen and the firemen, shut down the hospitals, turn the medicaid and medicare patients out of the E.R. and finally shove grandma off a cliff in her wheelchair.

It was much easier for us minions to keep all the instructions straight back in the day when Karl Rove’s cerebral implants were operational. Now we have to watch the Democrats campaign ads to find out what we nefarious activities we are supposed to be undertaking. The Tea Party needs much more coordination to be successful. The Koch brothers are not getting their money’s worth for sure.

5.6% Asian
0.2% Native American
0.2% other

If she wants to play the race-baiting game, maybe there is a strong, conservative Hispanic business leader in her District who’d like her seat?

High unemployment in the black communities in Florida? How can that be?

Maybe is has something to do with the fact that only two-thirds of black high school students graduate. (Data as of November 2009 for the state of Florida.) Not having a high school diploma is always a big plus on one’s résumé, right?

Perhaps Rep. Wilson should be a bit more concerned about the level of education of those in her district and not so quick to lay the blame for failure at the feet of others.

Republicans want government to do less. They want it to mange less of their lives, make less decisions for them, create fewer limitations and regulations on their lives, and take and spend less of its money. Indeed, as made evident by the rise of the Taxed Enough Already movement, quite a number of Americans have come to echo this sentiment. So it can be said that Rick Perry’s call for a government that is as inconsequential in our lives as possible, is a good way to win the Republican presidential nomination. The quote is powerful phraseology that allows Republicans and voters fed up with government, to understand that Rick Perry gets it.

“The real enemy is the Tea Party –- let’s remember that,” said Rep. Frederica Wilson of Miami Gardens, host of the meeting and jobs fair. “The Tea Party holds Congress hostage … They have one goal in mind, and that’s to make President Obama a one-term president.”

I don’t know who this public servant is attacking American citizens. I don’t want to know who she is. I want her to be as inconsequential in my life, and other American’s lives as possible. These protestations and histrionics do not belong in public service, they belong in a burlesque show. We as Americans have to stop electing people to public office from sideshows, advanced by the MSM. It’s that simple, elect prudent, capable competent people to “Serve” their constituents, not call them names like harridans. This is what happens when public office is turned into a scam, a hustle, a dodge, a con – insert: carny vernacular here.
