You know things aren't going well for the Ted 'Tea' Cruz's when old, extremist anti-Obamites are bashing them at their anti-government rally.
For some darn reason, the organizers of the “Million Vet March on the Memorials” are suddenly distancing themselves from the fine people who showed up in DC over the weekend to tear down the barriers around the WWII Memorial and demand the impeachment of Fake Preznit Obama. On their homepage and their FacePlaceSpace page, the organizers announce their “Official Stance”
Official Stance of the Million Vet March on the Memorials:
The political agenda put forth by a local organizer in Washington DC yesterday was not in alignment with our message. We feel disheartened that some would seek to hijack the narrative for political gain. The core principle was and remains about all Americans honoring Veterans in a peaceful and apolitical manner. Our love for and our dedication to remains with Veterans, regardless of party affiliation or political leanings.
Gosh. Can’t understand why people showed up at a rally whose organizers also said that “barricading and shutting down the World War II Memorial to veterans…a despicable act of cowardice” would somehow think it was a political event.
Oh, and of course, after the first day of the government shutdown, WWII vets were allowed to enter the WWII Memorial while it remained closed to everyone else. Funny how that fact appears nowhere on the Million Vet March website.
All these reactionaries want to do is start a new revolution against president Obama. Hmmm, one form of the tea party hates the other form of the tea party. It's confusing when the extremists fight with each other sometimes.
Seems they didn't find this sort of dialog to be particularly patriotic. Sarah Palin, Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Mike Lee and various congressmen who were in attendance thought it was a-ok.
I guess they think they can persuade Obama to "put the Koran down, get up off his knees" and what ... resign? Because they don't like him? The youthful baby boomer liberals were full of arrogance and foolishness. And the aging baby boomer reactionaries are too. And except for the fact that the reactionaries have managed to take over one of the two major parties and wield tremendous political power they're exactly the same.
