That’s different

June 25, 2013

Just who do those Tea Party nut jobs think they are? Have they no respect or human decency? The unmitigated gall of that right-wing lunatic, heckling the First Lady as she addressed the crowd! Oh, m......

The same confrontational style tactics were used by the homosexual community in the early 70's to gain legitimacy with the American Psychiatric Association. For decades, the APA and other organizations considered homosexuality an illness.

"On May 3, 1971, the protesting psychiatrists broke into a meeting of distinguished members of the profession. They grabbed the microphone and turned it over to an outside activist, who declared: 'Psychiatry is the enemy incarnate. Psychiatry has waged a relentless war of extermination against us. You may take this as a declaration of war against you.......We're rejecting you all as our owners.'" --P.33 "Homosexuality and the Politics of Truth"

Within the next two years and continued pressure the APA provided legitimacy to homosexuals. It was not through scientific study and evidences but it was a political coup.

The woman confronting Michelle Obama was using the same tactics that were used by her predecessors 40 years ag

Just so typical of the Left in this country, always blaming the TEA Party for everything. The poor TEA Party who stands for freedom, no more tax increases and limited government and they get blamed for EVERYTHING. They are called racists, homophobes. They hate everyone and they are just so violent according to the Left, yet never once have they ever proven the TEA Party to be disruptive. They are just the enemy of the Left and will always be blamed just like the Republican party gets the blame for everything. That is the Chicago way!

"Do I have your gist right? The left hired a heckler to appear to be a right winger who was rude or harassing to the First Lady for the purpose of making the right look like uncivilized mean animals? You know, there just may be some truth here. Think about it, when was the first lady ever a non confrontational wallflower against hecklers and haters? How bout, Never? So she should have torn them apart, except, they work for her." - Francine

I'd give that a 3 (out of 10), for conspiracy-creativity.

Most everyone-else was expecting it.

Shaman I can see that you have a jealousy of "Porky" Limbaugh. It is pretty obvious that you have never listened to him because you are not smart enough to understand what his show is all about. You are just a typical Looney Left mudslinger just like all the rest. You can't support your beliefs with facts, so you choose to just make degrading comments of anyone who does not think like your twisted mind. How sad you are. You should be ashamed of yourself.

The right complains just to complain. A republican would have screened out the heckler they would have not allowed it.

No...it's a matter of T-Baggers NEVER referencing their sources; i.e. the Dead-O-Head Syndrome.

I think it is funny that you think there is a difference. Heckling is heckling no matter where it comes from. Some handle it better than others. The right can not handle it at all.

Basic principles need no research; something the left doesn’t understand because they aren’t able to support their statements with principles, only rhetoric.

Again the conversation has degraded into "that's what you are but what am I?". Libs cite Left Wing sources which they think is the truth, and the Right cites more mainstream news sources, i.e. Matt Drudge, FOX News, ect. Smaller minds will ridicule and call names at the other people and their sources but never think what they're doing is wrong. You keep belittling Porky (I'll bet you are just SO svelte) Limbaugh and FAUX News guys and girls. We need to know who stands with the Dictator in Chief.

Reeder- Phil and I look to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights for our Principals. The Tea Party looks to those same sources for their Principals. You belittle us for our Principals, but where do you get your ideals from?

The Constitution is based on principles and philosphy writings of liberals. This just goes to show how much the right knows. The right has no pronciples.

In my book politics and politicians are dirty words. Theater and posturing are an important part of politics, as is spin and just plain lying. Planting people in the other party's activities is as old as the country. Both parties are guilty as sin of all of this and, unfortunately, cannot be trusted to work for the betterment of the country.

Reeder your knowledge of the Constitution comes from Left Wing sources. Please check out a web site called "Wallbuilders". These people are experts on the Founders and the Constitution. IF YOU DARE!!!!! P.S. Please try to keep an open mind.

Come on Reeder, you haven't brought up slavery yet! We've mentioned the Constitution...... all together now..... the Founders were slave owners!! How can a fair Constitution be written by slave owners?! Or, would only a racist bring up racist views?
