Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and the Tea Party
A lot is being made over the recent row between Allen West and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. As per the norm, the liberals are framing it so the Allen West is just bat turd crazy and went off on poor little Debbie.
What all of them are ignoring is their past. As Allen states, Wasserman-Schultz isn’t a
Now, one can assume Wasserman-Schultz’s vitriol for West stems from one of many issues. He’s a Republican. He’s a conservative. He’s not as white as she is. He’s not as female as she is. However, in that video, she singles out one very specific reason to justify her attacks. He is a Tea Party favorite. She HATES the Tea Party.
Now, I’m a tepid Tea Party kinda guy. I believe in some of their fundamental beliefs. But, they don’t seem to have a whole lot of details on how to get to that point. You can’t just chop off the budget. Can’t do it. Too many legal issues. You can start working on it. And that would be a good thing to do. And, if this country is to survive too much longer, will HAVE to be done. But, what I have not seen the Tea Party do is endorse ethical values. I like that. The Tea Party I learned to know and love was purely a fiscal entity. They never got sucked into the abortion issue, gay rights, or anything else that truly falls outside the domain of the FEDERAL government. Individual candidates do, but not the national level Tea Party, that I was aware of. So, EITHER Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is ignorant of the core Tea Party issue that got this whole thing rolling, OR, she’s attacking the generalization that the Tea Party is simply a renamed Reagan era conservative group. That’s simple. That’s easy. That’s what a lot of liberals do.
But, I’m here to state clearly that if the Tea Party does nothing else at all in the next Congressional election, they need to target Debbie Wasserman-Schultz with every single penny they have.
I’m sure she obviously hates Allen West. But, it’s obvious she hates the Tea Party just as much. As a member of the Progressive Caucus, she has to. Nothing is more opposed to a limited government than the Progressives. Nothing the Tea Party could possibly target would have more meaning than the Progressives. It goes beyond party, it goes beyond race, it goes beyond gender. It would completely define the fight as it needs to be. Big Brother vs States’ Rights as defined by the Constitution.
You REALLY need to do this or run the risk of getting lost like all the other “movements” of my lifetime.
