Not guilty: The Tea Party and violence
By Lloyd Marcus
October 22, 2018

Trying to sound nonpartisan on TV, some conservatives and Republicans begin their comments saying there is too much vitriol and incivility on both sides of the political aisle. Folks, that simply is not true. As a veteran of the Tea Party movement, I can testify that Tea Party people are a class act; salt-of-the-earth, decent, hardworking, respectful and law-abiding Americans. We do not behave like the Democrats' arrogant Trump-hating domestic terrorists.

When I was 9, I babysat my 3 younger siblings. Jerry liked to play alone building things in our bedroom. Just to be annoying, David would go into our bedroom and break whatever Jerry built. They would fight. When mom got home from work, both would plead their case. Too tired to figure out the details, mom would punish both boys for fighting. I told mom that was unfair because David started it. In life, there are good guys and bad guys. Democrats/leftists are the bad guys. Tea Party Americans are the good guys.

Democrats/leftists forced their way into our lives, hellbent on breaking traditional Godly principles and values that average Americans hold dear. And yet, with the help of fake news media, Democrats/leftists have deceived many Americans into believing Conservatives, Republicans, Christians and Tea Party people are the hateful aggressors. We are not.

We are the ones minding our own business. Meanwhile, Democrats/leftists are demanding that we stop celebrating Christmas and Easter. Democrats/leftists demand that teachers stop addressing students as boys and girls; deeming it hateful and discriminatory. Democrats/leftists are demanding that they be allowed to kill babies even after they are born. Democrats/leftists are demanding that schools assist students with abortions and sex changes without parental knowledge or consent. Democrats/leftists demanded that prayer and Bibles be banned in schools, while demanding that LGBTQ lessons become mandatory in public schools. LGBTQ lessons include instructions on rimming, anal sex and using fruit as sex toys. https://bit.ly/2R5p4oZ

In response to the spontaneous grassroots birth of the Tea Party, Democrats orchestrated their Occupy Wall Street movement. Fake news media loved it, claiming OWS was morally superior to the Tea Party. Hogwash! OWS deadbeats trashed every site of their events, leaving mountains of trash and human waste. People were raped at OWS camps. https://bit.ly/2pYJeVh

OWS attracted people obsessed with viewing themselves as victims of someone or something. Wacko anti-American, anti-Capitalism, pro-Socialism and pro-Communism zealots found a home in OWS. These deadbeats demanded that government give them the fruit of hard working American's labor. OWS minions vandalized private property which included dumping a bucket of feces in the lobby of a public building. https://bit.ly/2ypv04G

Over the 500 Tea Party rallies I attended on numerous national bus tours, I never witnessed violence coming from our side. Our Tea Party Express tour bus was attacked with eggs and bottles on a few occasions. Outside a St Louis town-hall meeting, a Democrat/leftist hit-squad beat up black vendor Kenneth Gladney, sending him to the emergency room for daring to sell flags which read, "Don't Tread on Me." https://bit.ly/2EAeVyr

A million-plus Tea Party people attended our 2010 rally in Washington DC to stop Obamacare. We left the site super clean which is how we left every site of every rally.

I do not ever recall hearing the 'f ' word spoken from the stage at a Tea Party rally. Our rallies typically began with prayer, our National Anthem and the Pledge of Allegiance. Years ago, I sang at a Gathering of Eagles rally in Washington DC in support of our troops. Blocks away, a thousand or more Democrats/leftists marched down a street of our nation's capitol chanting, "F*** George Bush!" Folks, Tea Party people would never be so crude, rude or disrespectful of the public (children and families). After Trump won the presidency, the Democrats'/leftists' Woman's March in DC was an orgy of vulgarity and profanity screamed from the stage; praised by fake news media. https://bit.ly/2CtlNei

Fake news media practically ignored Democrats/leftists marching down a NY street chanting, "What do we want? Dead Cops! When do we want it? Now!" https://bit.ly/2S1qCRp And yet, fake news media have deceived many into believing Conservatives and Republicans are the mean-spirited violent aggressors in leftists' assault on our culture. We are not.

Democrats/leftists kidnapped and tortured a disabled man for expressing support for Trump. https://bit.ly/2wRPNPM Seniors wearing MAGA caps are being assaulted; punched in the face. Democrats severely punish young blacks caught wearing MAGA caps. It still blows my mind that Democrats have successfully convinced many blacks that a desire to make our/their homeland great is racist.

Obama told Democrats to get into Republican's faces. Hillary Clinton told Democrats to be uncivil. Maxine Waters said upon seeing a Republican at a supermarket, gas station and etc, Democrats should gather a crowd to scream, yell and humiliate them. Tea Party people would never engage or encourage such mob assaults.

Cops being ambushed and assassinated around the country is the direct result of Democrats/leftists promoting Black Lives Matter's inflammatory lie that cops murder blacks on site.

In my many years as a black conservative Tea Party activist, neither white supremacists or their rhetoric was ever tolerated anywhere near a Tea Party rally. Tea Party organizers were extremely passionate about making it clear that our beef with Obama was about his extreme leftist policies and not his skin-color. Despicably, fake news media relentlessly promoted their lie that the Tea Party was made up of white supremacists and was the new KKK without sheets. Fake news media is using the same disgusting bogus racist smear to undermine Trump making America great again.

Meanwhile, fake news media celebrates openly racist hate groups and anarchists like Black Lives Matter and Antifa. Black Lives Matter boldly sent out a clarion call to their minions that it is 'open season' on killing cops and white people. https://bit.ly/2yJfqQC Antifa terrorists are destroying private property and physically attacking all who refuse to submit to their outrageous demands. Do you see why it drives me nuts hearing Conservative/Republican pundits parroting leftists' lie that the violence and hate on both sides needs to be toned down? Tea Parties are upbeat family friendly events; inspiring speakers – featuring Christian and patriotic music.

We Tea Party people never beat up our opposition. Desiring the best for all our fellow Americans, we reach-out to Democrats/leftists trying to education them. Democrats/leftists have become super-hostile to facts and truth. They now seek to silence, punish and jail anyone daring to disagree with their agenda. Tea Party people are the opposite. We highly respect our constitutional right of free speech. So don't tell me Tea Party people are just as guilty of incivility as Democrats/leftists. That is a lie.

Trump swiftly dismantling Obama's anti-America agenda and successfully placing another conservative on the Supreme Court has caused Democrats and fake news media to suspend any pretense of civility, honesty and respect for the law. The Democratic Party has morphed into an angry insane mob. Their enforcers, joined by fake news media are determined to beat the American people into submission. The Democrats' Trump resistance mob bears no resemblance to the Tea Party which is dignified, patriotic and good. The Democratic Party has become the home of pure evil and must never be allowed back into power, controlling the house, senate or White House.
