Tea Party America

Here is the "love of liberty" you can expect once the Tea Party takes power...

The sad fact is that a lot of people who parade around loudly claiming their patriotism and their "love of liberty" are simply right wing thugs more interested in seizing power and forcing others to conform to their straight-jacketed views than they are in a democracy in which people have the right to differing points of view and the right to publicly demonstrate in support of their views.

Here's Maureen Dowd's take on this incident:
The misogyny reached its zenith outside a Rand Paul debate in Lexington, Ky., on Monday night when a group of Tea Party toughs roughed up a woman from MoveOn.org because she wouldn’t move on.

One man, wearing a “Don’t Tread on Me” button, ripped off her wig and wrestled her to the ground with the help of another man, and a third Paul volunteer stamped his foot on her shoulder when she was down.
