Marginalizing a Movement

February 6, 2010

Friday night, the Tea Party died.  When Joseph Farah stood before the 600 activists at the Tea Party convention and called on the President to produce his birth certificate, the Tea party devolved from concerned Americans demanding lower taxes and less government to a fringe group of right wing fanatics who are unwilling to accept the fact Barack Hussein Obama won the 2008 Presidential election.  Simpletons like Mr. Farah want somebody to gently awaken them from the terrible nightmare of the Obama administration.  They forget that our Founding Fathers sacrificed life and honor, placed their lives on the line every day to fight for the freedoms that we enjoy.  People like Mr. Farah have become so spoiled by America’s freedoms that they have become too lazy to take up the work our forefathers began.  Mr. Farah, and those like him, would rather place all of their hope on some “hail Mary” play, a legal technicality that will make all of their problems go away than govern.  Give it up Mr. Farah.

For those of you who are unsure where President Obama was born, ask true conservatives like Bill O’Reilly and Glen Beck.  Look at Obama’s birth announcement in two Hawaiian newspapers.  Read the Certification of Live Birth produced by the state of Hawaii.  Listen to what Dr. Chiyome Fukino, director of the Hawaii State Department of Health, has to say on the subject.  And then give up this silliness.

It is time to stop looking for the easy way out and to begin the hard work of transforming our country back to the way our Founding Fathers intended it.

Clearly Mr. Farah does not understand what the Tea Party really is.  Americans came together, united in one voice to say, we are Taxed Enough Already and we want the Government to be less of a presence in our lives, not more.  That is the rallying cry that prompted more than a million Americans to decent on Washington DC on 9/12.  That is what the Tea Party movement is really about.  The garbage that Mr. Farah is attempting to peddle does not belong in the people’s movement.

The Tea Party is dead, long live the next group that takes on the cause of lower taxes and limited government.  Maybe the Republican Party will take up this fight?
