Using that logic, how did the Democratic Party seem to survive Robert Byrd?

He was one guy in a district full of uneducated people suspicious of outsiders.

He would have made a great Tea Party leader, but back when he first ran for office, Dems were just as racist and stupid as Republicans.

I think everyone realizes the Democratic party has some pretty systemic racism that needs to be addressed. Bringing it up doesn't change the fact that the Tea Party is two jumps away from the Klan.

Yeah thats another thing, always a laff when G5 tells us how Dems are overblowing Republican racism as evident with VoterID laws and illegal immigration among other issues, yet his favorite defense seems to be "see? Dems do it too!" along with a link to some isolated goofy incident (which yes, of course, does happen).

So agreeing with fiscally responsible and constitutional government makes me a racist? Please, go ahead with your usual pedantic assertions and spell out how people like me are so evil

ooh the word pedantic totally confused me

And every single thing you said is completely fabricated and has nothing to do with what I actually said, and everything to do with your persecution complex.

And the definition of "Constitutional Government" appears to be: Things I like are Constitutional, things I don't like are not Constitutional. For example, Heller vs. DC specifically assures the governments ability to register, tax and track firearms as they see fit, which has always been the case, but now for some strange reason background checks are unconstitutional, apparently because Wayne LaPierre said so but thats just an opinion.

what I'm getting from this video is that the tea party movement is based mostly on a bunch of boomers' memories of 'the good ol days'

Way to completely backpedal once you are called out. Take a gander at what the actual platform of the Tea Party is based on and then get back to me on how individual factions have hijacked it. I hate to break it to ya, but it is just like every other play the media has drummed up. The exception is not the rule.

do you acknowledge that the globalized world we live in combined with exponential population growth has made band/tribe organizations lacking in a strong centralized government an impossibility?

The actual platform of the Tea Party is whatever Dick Armeys Republican Party creation, the Tea Party Express, and similar organizations says it is. To be brutally honest, what this lady is spouting is closer to what the rank and file supporters who don't like the big organizational control are more into. Either way it's dying a most deserved death - the question is will it take the Republican Party down with it?
