Very savvy, sophisticated and wealthy/influential individuals and groups (e.g.: FreedomWorks, et al) are organizing Fear, Insecurity, Reaction, and Ignorance in this so called "Tea Party" movement purportedly 'grass-roots' and 'leaderless'. They have Fox News as a permanent and continual platform and amplification medium to maintain its momentum.

They are dangerous to civilization itself!

My only problem with this post, is that people who claim to be "journalists", betray their own biases when they use a term as vile as "teabagger" to describe the Tea Party.

Seriously, that is a more offensive term, than the N-word, or any other epithet that the Tea Party has been accused, but not proven, of using.
