OK – so regular readers of my blog have susssed out that I don’t much care for conservatives… Especially the brand of conservatives who base their conservatism and belief system on racism. Which certainly isn’t every conservative – but it is too damn many of them. And I certainly advocated the trials of members of the Bushit Administration responsible for lying the country into the Iraq War, and should those trials result in conviction for treason – a swift and sure execution by the rope or the gun as prescribed by law.
Prisons - Good Places for Tea Baggers According to RK Byers
But this Opinion piece over at NewsOne caught my eye as being (more than a little) bit over the top.
50 years ago, this is exactly what the ancestors of todays Tea Baggers wanted to do to black folks, for having the temerity to “make trouble” in agitating for their Civil Rights. Indeed I remember wild eyed accounts during the 60’s that the old internment camps used in WWII to incarcerate the Japanese were being spruced up, for a new minority group!
As much as some, currently resident on the right might have wished that to happen – it didn’t.
So I don’t agree with RK on this one. The Tea Baggers have a right to demonstrate, march, holler, and make complete racist asses of themselves here in this US of A. They pick up a gun or a bomb – different story. They use the Public Airwaves to incite insurrection or assassination – they should be prosecuted and thrown in jail like any other terrorist.
But Joe Hummer-six-pack running around in the streets waving his American Flag, and racist signs? Or Joe-Bob Glock running around in the woods trying to pretend he’s 20 again, instead of 50 with a beer belly?
No. That is not America, even in a most cynical view – it is something far far worse.
OPINION: Tea Party Members Should Be Rounded Up & Jailed
Get this straight: if you’re living in America right now, you’re a descendant of a criminal, a kidnapping victim, or a bum—possibly all three.
There are no descendants of royalty in America. Royalty doesn’t leave home.
