Dale Robertson, the founder of TeaParty.org, has posted a scathing article that warns his followers that the Republican party, and more specifically Sarah Palin, are trying to hijack their movement.
I am sending an alarm to the Tea Party membership! Be alert to turncoats and deceivers being herded into the Tea Party by usurpers from the weakened Republican Party for the sole purpose of capturing our populist movement. Our political ideals were once theirs and our immense growth has created a lusting for their good old days!
Sarah Palin’s well delivered speech and her attractive demeanor is little more than a veneer for her less attractive political philosophy. She seems more like a duck out of water among true Conservative Constitutionalists. Palin demonstrates her NeoCon flippant viewpoint and her naïveté as she seems envious of the swelled numbers of Patriots pledging their allegiance, to of all things, AMERICA and not to a kool-aid ridden political dinosaur.
What Republican wouldn’t want 10 million angry voters marching in the streets shouting, God Bless The Republican Party, where a few months before the same voices sang, God Bless America!
Sarah Palin is not dense or erroneous in her view of the Tea Party, just the opposite. She represents a growing insider’s attack to the heart of the Tea Party. Very much like a wolf in sheep’s clothing entering in at the gate as an ally, but for all intents and purposes there to seize and capture, not only one or two stray sheep, but the whole flock!
I don't usually defend the teabaggers (which you may be able to discern for yourself since I always call them "teabaggers"), but I have to agree with Dale Robertson to some degree. If this movement really wants to stay true to their poorly rationalized and inarticulate cause they are going to have to resist being absorbed into the GOP. After all most of the things that the teabaggers stand against was foisted upon them by George W. Bush and the Republicans, like bigger government, a higher deficit, and the loss of jobs.
If these knuckledraggers were really serious about wanting to help this country get back on its financial feet and keep taxes low they would demand an end to the two wars America is currently fighting. With trillions of dollars being sent overseas it is ignorant to blame our financial situation on any bank bailouts or health care plan.
I would also support Robertson's desire to keep Palin as far away from his movement as possible. She is a one woman wrecking crew. Literally everything she touches turns to moose shit.
