Liberals have done their fair share of puffing up the Tea Party. They love nothing more than getting hot and bothered over the fascist threat as a way of scaring people into voting for Democrats as our last line of defense against the brownshirts. Yeah, the TP is awful, and a lot of people hate Obama for all the wrong reasons, starting with his skin color, but he’s earned plenty of criticism for the way he serves money and empire.
While I disagree some with Henwood on Tea Partiers – I think their protests are often based on real grievances – his analysis of liberal paralysis against criticizing Obama and hysteria about TP is dead on target.
I mean, really folks, just because Sarah Palin says something outrageous doesn’t mean you have to foam at the mouth in response like one of Pavlov’s dogs.
