You have to hate the president, be middle aged, angry, white, insecure, turn your back on science, have a disdain for education, and have a deep-seated hostility toward Hispanics, women, gays and blacks to be a so-called American by this fringe rightwing group.
Look at their leaders..
- Sharron Angle, who looks to "Second Amendment remedies" (shooting) Congressmen who Teabaggers disagree with
- Ron Paul's crazy son "Rand" who is against Civil Rights Legislation
- Mr Morality, Carl Paladino, a homophobe who claims gays are "disgusting" while he raises 2 sets of kids with his wife and mistress, sends out racist emails, and threatens the life of a NY Post reporter with cameras rolling
- Christine O'Donnell, who was a witch, thinks there are mice-people running around, wonders why monkeys don't turn into humans right before our eyes, has weird sexual hangups, and believes she has secret information on China's plan to take over America
- Rich Iott, who likes to dress up like a NAZI
- They all want to CHANGE the First Amendment to preclude a legal Muslim cultural center from being built 2 blocks away from Ground Zero
- They want to CHANGE the 14 Amendment to exclude Mexican babies from being US citizens when born here like everybody else
- the whole bunch of them oppose a woman's right to an abortion even in the case of incest and rape
THESE ARE THE CRAZY PEOPLE.
They have taken over the Republican party. They may seem funny, but if they regain the majority in Congress, they will undo all the progress made since they were kicked out. That means Health Care Reforms disappear, and insurance companies will once again be able to drop anyone who gets sick or refuse to cover anyone with pre-existing conditions. It means deregulation of the financial industry which caused the economic meltdown in the first place. And it means a return to all the UNCONSTITUTIONAL antics of the previous administration, like
- illegally spying on US citizens without a warrant
- illegally waging war against a country that never attacked us
- illegally outing a CIA officer during wartime
- lowering the USA to the level of Iran with illegal torture
