Activist: National tea party has ties to extremist groups
This article points out that 5 out of 6 National tea party groups are tied to extremists, something you’ve been reading about at LGF since pre-election. (see past 2007- 2009 posts and comments on Ron Paul, Tea Party, & far right etc. by Charles, KT, me, and many others.)
It’s easy to see these ties when the organizers of many of the tea party meetings and tea party groups are Constitution party theocrats, Council of Conservative Citizens supremacists, John Birch Society paranoid kooks, Bloody Randall Terry types, and other fringers who have been welcomed back into the GOP with open arms when post-Goldwater GOP policy had been to hide them just outside the tent flaps. This particular broadening is due to the GOP’s desperation over the shrinking demographic of voters willing to accept the hard social conservative tripe of the religious right base. Over the short run it could help them in the mid-terms, but over the longer run it will cost them.
The only legitimately non extremist tea party group out there is just the old Texas Bush/Delay/Rove machine rebranded now as “Tea Party Express” and led by Dick Armey.
Also note that this is another Human Rights org that brands Pam Geller as an extremist:
Burghart identified Pamela Geller, part of ResistNet group, as an Islamophobe and Birther. Geller has said there’s no such thing as a “good” Muslim and that Obama may be the illegitimate son of Malcolm X.
“Most of us would say that’s insane, but she has a national platform and gets on television,” Burghart said.
