Dipshit Tea Party
The main problem? OH NOES SOSHALIZM WHY I HAS TO HALP NAYBOR?
The way they’re choosing to go about protesting it? Reenacting the Boston Tea Party, which (as anyone who has ever studied American history ever in the history of their lives ever for a second should know) was a protest by colonists of the (then) new world, who were still subject to the British crown but unrepresented and uninvolved in the decision-making process concerning their own lives. They didn’t want to pay the hefty, unreasonable taxes being imposed on tea imports, and were not being legally permitted to import tea from other, less expensive sources. So they revolted and threw a buttload of tea into Boston Harbor (a somewhat childish and wasteful way to go about things, but also effective).
Are protestors suggesting they are an unrepresented minority being taken advantage of by a distant and uncaring monarchy? Because the last time I checked, we all got to vote. And we chose our president. And he’s trying to do something that actually creates instead of destroys for once.
Where were the tea parties when your precioussssss tax money was being spent on destruction? Why no protest when bloated war budgets were thrown at you?
Can it really be so simple as preferring that which helps NO ONE to that which helps someone who isn’t you? Are you really that selfish, “conservative America”?
Does anyone actually believe that (clearly scripted and staged) nonsense from Santelli about “paying for your neighbor’s extra bathroom”?
Because I didn’t see that anywhere in the proposal, did you?
