The head of Democrat Party of Wisconsin upped the ante on his insults towards tea partiers with a fund raising letter to his party faithful.
Here is what I said: "These are extremist elements pulling together, distinct vocal minorities that frankly don't believe in this country. They don't want to see more people have access to quality affordable health care; they don't want clean air and water. They fundamentally don't understand how the American government, economy and capitalism work."
I meant what I said, and I'm not afraid to say it again.
Just because you throw the biggest temper tantrum doesn't mean you can silence the majority of Americans who want fundamental change in this country.
History is riddled with examples of vocal fringe groups that have risen to oppose progress and success. From the red-baiting McCartyhyites to the Know-Nothings and the KKK, we have seen this story unfold many times in the past. Fueled by ignorance, racism and intolerance, these groups have done everything in their power to obstruct progress – often resorting to intimidation and violence.
When do ordinary Americans, who are showing up to these, finally reject the Democrat Party outright? I say that time is coming.
There were plenty of Independents at this event. When Michelle Malkin blasted Republicans, the crowd went nuts. So if these liberal elitists continue this way of thinking, all hope is lost in the state of Wisconsin for many of the democrat candidates next year.
Apparently, slamming average Americans that show up at these events does not seem like the smart thing to do.
I could not be more excited that Mike Tate has chosen this moment to destroy the Democrats in this state among Independents voters. Good job, Mike Tate!
In the meantime, Reince Priebus, the head of the GOP in Wisconsin, has chosen to take a stand against the Dems hateful speech, even though his party was blasted at the tea party event on Saturday.
Good for Reince. He did not allow the constant GOP bashing at these tea parties to cloud his judgement. Reince did the right thing by responding and sending that response to the leaders of the Democrat Party...Governor Jim Doyle and Lt. Gov. Barb Lawton.
