"Folks, the tea party is, has been and will always be a complete fraud.
"They don’t care about deficits, Medicare, the wars, the budget, or Obamacare. They don’t care about Trump, Beck or even Sarah Palin. They came together because these media folks touched their deeply held emotions and ministered to their feelings of displacement. Fox gave voice to their seething resentment and amplified their lamentations over their difficulty in sharing space with those unlike themselves.
"The 50s era Dixiecrats, the Ross Perot brigade of the 90s and the present day tea partiers are all the same folks. They are the enemies of progress which is how Beck makes such a good a living fighting against "progress." These are the folks driving the Arizona laws, the Wisconsin’s anti-union laws and the return of the Jim Crow laws in Florida. These are the folks who hates Eric Holder, Sonya Sotomayor and Barack Obama. They are not moved by the particulars of policies but by fear, anxiety and the changing of America."
