Folks on the Left: If you don't like the Tea Party people, tell your spokespersons to quit creating them

This is What They Think of You; Prove Them Wrong

I'm not part of the Tea Party. But the video posted by Bob Ellis at Dakota Voice certainly shows why it has some traction.

When you write people off and dehumanize them, they will at some point organize against you. It might be active or passive aggression, but they will resist. Folks on the left are good at seeing this in the experiences of various minorities or disenfranchised groups; they're just not able to see the way in which they play into the same scenario.

I mean, really. "You disagree with me so you must have a neurological problem." A monstrous thought worthy of the worst totalitarians.

I am a part of the Tea Party group and what I can tell you is that it continues to astound me how those not involved (both on the right and on the left) have no idea who we are or why we're doing what we're doing. That is the largest reason why the movement continues to expand; people check it out because of curiousity and find something they never knew existed.
