Conservative Logic:

All Americans deserve to have rights and be free

Except gays, blacks, women, immigrants, and anyone who isn't a rich white guy

last time I checked, you could get a bunch of free **** no matter what race you are, so long as you are poor and lazy, and you get get money from the goverment for it. However, certain races( everyone thats not white) could, for instance, get a special scolarship for not being white and get money off their tution (appyling for colleges made me angry)

Since when?

Since the Tea Party.

How? If you want to make an incredibly ignorant statement, be prepared to back it up.

I'm not trashing all conservatives, but the Tea Party has given the entire Republican party a bad name. That is, unless you want to argue that Sarah Palin, Rick Santorum, and Michelle Bachmann are intellectual individuals.

So you really think a significant portion of the country hates many people? Really? You gotta be smarter than that.

I'm saying that because of this movement, conservative logic has become that bad.

I'm not saying all Republicans are moronic bigots, but the Teabaggers sure have made them look like it.

Look at this "essay" for example, by Judson Philips, founder of the Tea Party Nation website.

This man uses this form of "logic" to assert that President Obama should prove that he is not gay and does not smoke crack. Philips also thinks that releasing medical records would prove that. The sad part is, people buy it. When dealing with the Tea Party, all logic and reasoning goes down the drain.

It should be no shocking revelation that there's always a fringe to every side. Naturally you'll get your crazies on any side of any issue, and I have no desire to defend them.

I don't think you quite grasp the nature of the tea party. There's no central organization, no one group or person to speak for all. I'm sure you're familiar with the concept of the "vocal minority." While the majority are more interested in issues like balancing the budget, unemployment, the economy, etc, there's always that portion that shriek and holler about irrelevant/erroneous issues.

The whole Occupy Wallstreet movement was of the same nature. It wasn't centrally organized and was without real leadership. And while most people involved were interested in fixing the things most of us are concerned about, there were the few anarchists and borderline-communists who got all of the media attention.

So in short, yeah there's going to be crazies. But they don't speak for the majority, and we don't have to validate them, nor should we.

Also, do you really need to use derogatory names? Not only does it come off as uninformed, it makes it seem as though you've made up your mind regardless of new things you may learn.
