” [some] …demonize scapegoated groups and individuals in our society, implying that it is urgent to stop them from wrecking the nation. Some angry people in the audience already believe conspiracy theories in which the same scapegoats are portrayed as subversive, destructive, or evil. Add in aggressive apocalyptic ideas that suggest time is running out and quick action mandatory and you have a perfect storm of mobilized resentment threatening to rain bigotry and violence across the United States.” -Chip Barlet
That about sums up the modus operandi of the Leftist Extremists’ treatment of The Tea Party Movement.
With the above in mind, check out the Tea Party attack from Brandeis University, Waltham, Massachusetts….

The German neonazi scene has received renewed attention at home and abroad since German unification in 1990. Xenophobic attacks on predominantly dark-skinned foreigners and desecrations of Jewish cemeteries regularly make headlines especially but not exclusively in East German cities and towns. Skinhead and neonazi movements, although deeply anti-international in their ideology, are also organizing across borders in both Eastern and Western Europe, as recent developments in Scandinavia and former communist countries have shown.
While promoting anti-semitic symbols and nazi emblems is illegal in Germany, the internet provides free access to plenty of propaganda material available on US websites. Indeed, anti-semitic films from the Nazi era are exclusively advertised there. When 88-year-old James W. von Brunn gunned down security guard Stephen Tyrone Johns at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. in June 2009 wing extremist groups in the US, too, received renewed attention. Racially-motivated arson attacks on churches in Texas are the latest in a string of right wing violence since President Obama became the first black president.
The Center for German and European Studies at Brandeis is convening European and American scholars who have studied these movements. Panelists will address questions about the most recent developments in the organizations’ demographics, their ideological framework, and the role of different free speech laws vis-a-vis the groups’ media/internet presence and activities both here in the US and in Europe.
For more information, please contact Sabine von Mering at email@example.com or Heidi McAllister at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can find this and a lot more at: Brandeis University Center for German and European Studies.
Oh… and that quote above from Chip Barlet? …it can be found here and is directly linked to from the Brandeis website.
Isn’t it interesting when Leftist Agitators justify for themselves that which they unabashedly use as weapons on others?
My reaction? I’ll borrow a one word phrase from Michelle Malkin:
The vicious and biased attacks from the postal Leftists/Socialists/Communists are the result of generational propaganda brainwashing by the Left: the inability to separate Extremist Factions from the Millions of everyday mainstream Americans who comprise 99.9% of the Tea Party Movement.
Why are the Leftists doing it? Because the Tea Party is the grassroots, law-abiding pushback of Americans against the all out Socialist/Communist takeover of the country being efforted by the Left.
This is not Europe. We have a Constitution and we defend it, much to the terminal frustration of those who want to perform a European makeover on the country we love and they hate.
