Wherein The Leftist Fails to Understand the Tea Party

I’ve long thought that the vast majority of the Left either fails to understand the point of the Tea Party or, and perhaps this is most likely, they are simply to ignorant and unread to understand it.

From Pajamas Media via TJIC:

A couple of days ago, Sarah Palin, working to keep up enthusiasm among her supports, extolled them not to take anything for granted; “Don’t party like it’s 1773”!

Now, if I were an ignorant ass wanting to make fun of my mortal enemy, even I would, while reflexively laughing at everything she said would stop mid laugh and think:

Wait.  WTF.  1773?  Why would she say THAT date.  I mean, it would be funny if she said, “Don’t party like it’s 2000”, or “Don’t party like it’s 2010” or some other nonsense.   But 1773?

But no.  The ignorant Leftists simply LOVE to hate her and attacked out of hand:

“Shes so smart”

But check this out:

The Boston Tea Party was a direct action by colonists in Boston, a town in the British colony of Massachusetts, against the British government. On December 16, 1773, after officials in Boston refused to return three shiploads of taxed tea to Britain, a group of colonists boarded the ships and destroyed the tea by throwing it into Boston Harbor. The incident remains an iconic event of American history, and other political protests often refer to it.

Par for the course Leftist.  Par for the course.

    The left ‘does’ understand the Tea Partyers. They understand how dangerous they are to Liberal ideology. The Left simply uses ridicule and blatant lies to attack those they fear most. Even when you use facts to prove they are wrong, it does not matter.

    With them it is about winning. The truth gets in their way, so they pretend it does not exist. It’s similar to arguing with the propagandists at Tass and Pravda. They are so blinded by their hate of Capitalists and Conservatives that they literally will say anything.

      I think you’re right; they DO understand.

      The truth gets in their way, so they pretend it does not exist.

      Sadly, they know how to poison the message and make people believe things that are simply untrue.

    You have to keep answering their lies with facts. Even though it seems like a lost cause.
