It Is Not Extremist To Defend The Constitution

These Americans are NOT extremists or terrorists

One of my relatives whom I love dearly is a dedicated liberal. Some time ago, the comment was made about the “Tea Party extremists.” I think I surprised them somewhat with the comment that I am one of those Tea Party “extremists.”

America has taken a dangerous turn when those who defend our rights under the Constitution, who demand fiscal responsibility, who insist on a balanced budget, and who do not accept the government’s efforts to insert itself into every aspect of American life are considered “extremists.”

The real extremists are the Progressive Socialists (known to some as Democrats) who believe that the American people are too stupid to run their own lives, who believe the Constitution needs to be “updated” or ignored, who support such bizarre movements as the filthy “Occupy” movement (filled with criminals and anarchists), who commit voter fraud and try to justify it, who believe that everyone who can’t make it in another country should be allowed to live here (while we support them), and who cheer on the bullying tactics of the large labor unions like SEIU.

This split in the American public has only increased with the partisan and devisive efforts of Barack Obama and his followers. Some of my liberal friends and relatives would say, “Well, it’s because the Republicans won’t work with the president.”

That is pure horse manure.

For the Progressive Socialists, “working with the president” means giving in to his every demand. Under this scenario, the Republicans would have to ignore the reasons people voted for them and pretend that their own integrity did not matter.

I wonder if the intent of the following report by the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center is to demonize everyone who opposes an over-reaching government? I could be mistaken, but I don't remember this organization saying anything about voter intimidation when the New Black Panther party showed up with clubs at the polls in 2008:

NEW REPORT: RADICAL ANTIGOVERNMENT MOVEMENT CONTINUES EXPLOSIVE GROWTH; SPLC URGES GOVERNMENT TO REVIEW RESOURCES DEVOTED TO DOMESTIC TERRORISM

March 5, 2013

The number of conspiracy-minded antigovernment “Patriot” groups on the American radical right reached an all-time high in 2012, the fourth consecutive year of powerful growth by a movement that is becoming increasingly militant as President Obama enters his second term and Congress debates gun control measures, according to a report issued today by the SPLC.

In a letter today to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, the SPLC warned of the potential for domestic terrorism and urged the creation of a new interagency task force to assess the adequacy of federal resources devoted to the threat.

Those who support the values of the Tea Party are not extremists or terrorists. They are the heart and soul of America. It is their love of the Constitution and the American way that will win out in the end.

You can take that to the bank…..
