I'm curious about people's opinion on these tea party protests here in the U.S. After watching interview after interview (and not just the liberal sources) I can't help but to feel embarassed and ashamed for how the U.S. must look to the rest of the world.

I don't have any strong opinions really. There are plenty of weird political groups around here as well, as far as I can tell the Tea Party is just another one. I haven't really been following them all that closely, aren't they some sort of fringe-rightists that want to abolish taxes and whatnot?

Right-wing and religious nutters are nothing unique to the US... every country has a bunch, no need to be any more embarrassed than the rest of us Smiley

I didn't read the links, but to me, it's the carrying guns to rallies and making statements that are just short of legally actionable threats against the president, while claiming to be oppressed and endangered, that is kind of special.

I'm all for speaking truth to power and standing up for what you believe in but these guys just seem to be Obama bashing without any real underlying cause. At least when the war protesters called Bush 'Hitler' and varouis other choice names, we knew why. These people must be racist. Why else do you only see a handful of token black people? The majority are white caucasian.

They take their name from the Boston Tea party who were protesting taxtation  without representation. Obama has lowered taxes for most Americans. Most teabaggers are claiming fear of what's going to happen rather than anything that actually has. And it's all mainly due to fox news network and republican shills like Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh. These guys get people so paniced up that they'll believe anything they say. They're trying to keep Americans angry and scared like we were on 9-12.

The closest thing I can find toward a unifying cause would be health care which people rightly have concerns. But most of these retirees rely on medicare and the va yet are the loudest ones screaming about socialism and communism. A complete contradiction.

Wow, these people seem to act out of utter ignorance. And I thought Israel had some dumb folks...

Their numbers are kind of alarming. What a retarded little race we are. Sad

Also, I thought this thread would be about something different when I read its topic. Tongue

The answer is simple for both of your questions:

They're stupid right-wing extremist nuts who watch Fox news all day. They need to get out, play some video games, and maybe try some role-playing (BDSM style! Grin)

While I don't have much love for your parties or system, I'd advise against going for "The opposition is opposing cause it is stupid". People have different opinions and some may be misled, but that doesn't automatically make them nuts.

Left-wing extremist nuts are also stupid. It's not about beliefs; ANY sort of super-extreme belief is dumb.

I think the Obama Hitler moustaches were bad, but that reaction is waay overdone. Cool down and think strategically.

Personally, I simply see that as an invocation of Godwin's Law, which just goes to show how weak their footing is to begin with.

Well one thing is for certain, our country has become very politcally divided. I had the "pleasure" of political discussion (sometimes heated) with some of my conservative family members during our vacation. We agreed to disagree on many issues and the discussions accomplished little.
