Tea Party vs. Occupiers

Do you remember how hostile and suspicious the non-Fox media were toward the Tea Party? And how partial they were to the Occupiers? They tried unsuccessfully to paint the Tea Party as racist and violent and smoothed over the real violence and chaos of the Occupy movement. They never told you that wherever the Tea Party peacefully rallied, they left not a gum wrapper on the ground. They tried to conceal the garbage, the rape and destruction left in the trail of the Occupiers.
Not unexpectedly, our president identified himself with the Occupiers, and Nancy Pelosi was certain the Tea Party was not a grassroots movement but was formed by outside agitators. Except there was no agitating, no profanity, no urinating in public, no mess left behind, no vandalism -- as I say, not even a gum wrapper.
The American people saw through the obfuscation of the non-Fox media, but half of them still say they’ll vote for the Occupy Wall Street candidate for president.
Please, God, deliver us from the mindless sheep who favor unwashed deadbeats over honest, God-fearing, hard-working citizens, and who unfortunately make up half of the electorate.
I saw a cartoon that says it all. A clean-cut, Tea Party guy with a three-cornered patriot’s hat holding a sign that read: “Leave us alone.” Next to him was a disheveled, bearded Occupy Wall Street guy holding a sign that read “Take care of us.”
