Congratulations Tea Party! Your Arizona Hit Proved Successful

This is the Tea Party political slogan used against Giffords prior to the 2010 election:
"Help remove Gabrielle Giffords from office. Shoot a fully automatic M16 with Jesse Kelly"
Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords announced she's stepping down from the Congress.
“A lot has happened over the past year. We cannot change that,” said Giffords, 41, in a video released by her office. She continued, haltingly: “I don’t remember much from that horrible day, but I will never forget the trust you placed in me to be your voice. Thank you for your prayers and for giving me time to recover. I have more work to do on my recovery. So to do what is best for Arizona, I will step down this week.”
The Tea Party Massacre can claim another Victory. Sarah Palin can now take down the gunsights she placed over Giffords' District and declare "Mission Accomplished".

Thankfully, once Koch Industries and Dick Armey stopped running the buses, the hollow Tea Party shell collapsed and hasn't be heard from since the Arizona Tea Party Massacre.

And the next time we do hear from the Tea Party will be when they abrogate their supposed strongly held beliefs and dutifully line-up to vote as they are instructed.

The only way to fight these bastards is to do so by using their play book - Organize, speak up, confront, demand answers -
Don't just vote - Get your ass out there and try and make a fucking difference.

Nothing until after I get moved and then - I will be heard!

Be heard too. PS - cussin is ok, you won't go to hell for calling your congressman a cocksucker.
I promise..

silver fiddle,

You've done this numerous times after a person acts on the Tea Party message, (actually just recycled anti-government Bircher Theories) of We came unarmed this time, the open brazen displays of weapons at the astroturfed political rallies.

There were the calls by Sarah Palin to "not retreat, reload" and her "Target the 20". Michele Bachmann wanted her constituents "armed and dangerous" over the Heathcare law Giffords voted for. Sharron Angle urged her supporters to "Use Second Amendment Remedies" to remove Harry Reid. And from Republican Catherine Crabill, "We have a chance to fight this battle at the Ballot Box before we have to resort to the Bullet Box". The use of violence or the threat of violence to effect political change is known as terrorism.

Conservative bloggers also actively wrote about Violence and Overthrow of the Government. I hope they do feel threatened. Attempts at peaceable protests have been met at turns by feigned ignorance, then mockery, then attacks on the character and motives of those would not sit quietly by. Perhaps it will take a serious review of our capacity for violence to get them to realize we shall not surrender our individual liberties to their lust for power.

High level Republican Bureaucrats have urged conservatives to violence as well. Please recall the fact free rantings of Ford and Reagan cabinet members Ernest S. Christian and Gary Robbins in their article; Will Washington's Failures Lead to Second American Revolution?

So, yes to quote you "it's all the tea party's fault". The Tea Party played around with guns and one went off in Arizona a year ago.

The "Marxist Pothead" is, based on his statements, a member of the Sovereign Citizen movement, only one step to the right of the likes of Sarah Palin. The press doesn't want to confront right wing terrorism, so they just ignore this fact.

And as usual, Silverfiddle, you are knowingly spreading lies. I have read your comments long enough to know that you are aware of the truth.
