Rep. James Clyburn (D - SC) is a complete and utter moron. The Democrats and their cohorts in the national media have been bad-mouthing the tea party movement from its inception, and now that they have passed their healthcare "destruction" bill the democrats are ratcheting up the rhetoric.
Mr. Clyburn believes that those Republican lawmakers who were cavorting with the tea-partiers on the day of the vote are "aiding and abetting...terrorism". I kid you not. Yes, there are definitely a few knuckleheads in the Tea Party movement... but there are a few knuckleheads in every movement. I would remind Democrats that Bill Ayers (a known terrorist) is a Democrat.
Wake up America. If we continue to elect men like Clyburn to office - this kind of hate-mongering and idiocy is what we can continue to expect. The tea-partiers are not racists and they sure as hell aren't terrorists. They are Americans who are pissed off at a government that has stopped listening... if you doubt this, just consider that the legislature just passed a law giving Congress control of 1/6th of the nation's economy and that effects every single American. And they did this all against the will of the American people.
It was the very definition of not listening... in fact the House passed the Senate Bill (even though the House members hated it) because they did not want the Senate to have to vote on Healthcare again. Why would they worry about another Senate vote? Because the good people of Massachusetts (one of America's most liberal bastions) elected a Republican solely because he would vote to kill the healthcare bill.
James Clyburn is an ass.
