I can’t wait for the right wing blogs to call out some of their own for a lack of civility (VIDEO)

As I surf the intertubes I’ve found that many of the right-wing blogs that populate the right side of the Cheddarsphere are fond of pointing out what they perceive is a lack of civility from those of us on the left side of the political spectrum.

Strangely, those same folks who are so outraged at the hateful rhetoric and incivility of the left are often silent as church mice when it comes to hateful rhetoric coming from individuals on their side of the political spectrum. Case in point would be the absolutely hateful rhetoric coming from leaders within the “Tea Party” movement at a rally here in Wisconsin on Saturday.

Judson PhillipsSpeaking at the “Milwaukee” Tea Party Express rally in Thiensville on Saturday, Tea Party Nation CEO Judson Phillips (pictured, right) made it abundantly clear that he hates (and that word might actually be an understatement) those of us on the left side of the political spectrum and what we believe in.

“I will tell you ladies and gentlemen, I detest and despise everything the left stands for. How anybody can endorse and embrace an ideology that has killed a billion people in the last century is beyond me,”

Here’s some video of Judson Phillips spewing his vitriolic message of hate:

Vince SchmukiNot to be outdone by Judson Phillips, Vince Schmuki (pictured, left), a leader of the Ozaukee Patriot tea party group (and a leader of the spectacular failure of an effort to recall former Gov. Jim Doyle) compared the recalls efforts here in Wisconsin to the terrorist attacks that felled the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City on September 11, 2001 (emphasis added).

“This is ground zero,” said Schmuki. “You remember what the term ground zero means? We have been attacked.”

He continued, “Tuesday is going to be the beginning of our takeover. And we’re going to follow it up the following week, and then we’re going to polish off the enemy in November 2012. Who’s with me?”

So there you have it folks….Judson Phillips of the Tea Party Nation “detest and despise everything the left stands for” while Vince Schmuki thinks all the folks who’ve been working to recall those Republican State Senators who’ve stood in solidarity with Gov. Scott Walker’s anti-public employee agenda are comparable to the terrorists who attacked the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.

Judson Phillips and Vince Schmuki ought to be ashamed of themselves, as should anyone who stands silent and condones their hateful rhetoric.

  1. Weren’t there something like 10,000 to 15,000 people at a Tea Party rally in Milwaukee a couple of years ago?

    Politico is reporting a few hundred in Thiensville on Saturday.


    Judson Phillips and the Tea Party Nation are descending to the relevance of Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church.

    Judson Phelps, Fred Phillips, Fredson Phellips; after awhile it all starts to sound the same.

    1. That will never happen. It’s not in them to do the right thing. Besides they might get a scolding from Norquist

  2. the Tea Party movement and the excitement it astroturfed was perfect camouflage for the solidification of the Republican law-makers and their ALEC takeover of government.

  3. It’s the summer you morons. Working people want to spend time with their families, not politic. Tea Party people aren’t bused in paid robots, that can’t answer why they are there, like the ones typical of the union based rally’s.

    For example: Ignorance plus threats of violence and revolution. http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=fff_1299130012

    I’ve listened to the video up top and I can’t find anything wrong with what he said. Take for example what Obama’s manufacturing czar said.

    “Generally speaking we get the joke. We know that the free market is nonsense. We know that the whole point is to game the system, to beat the market, or at least find someone who will pay you a lot of money because they’re convinced that there is a free lunch. We know this is largely about power, that it’s an adults only, no limit game. We kind of agree with Mao that political power comes largely from the barrel of a gun.” http://washingtonexaminer.com/blogs/beltway-confidential/2011/07/did-ron-bloom-lie-congress That guy has no business being involved in restructuring US business.

    1. You guys must have really gotten to good ole’ Meester B.

      He seems to be losing it.

  4. You put me in moderation. Hahahahahahaha!

    The rest of my commentary:

    And Bloom isn’t the only one agreeing with Mao, that is tied to the administration or to the Progressives. You know it is true and I can link more video or text to prove it. Like this one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X2FVEe7wCzs Why do we have a problem with Mao and the ideology of Progressives? “his rule from 1949 to 1976 is believed to have caused the deaths of 40 to 70 million people” There are Millions of individual reasons why we don’t like Mao and those like him.

    And don’t even get me started on vitriol http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3ctO7fdrcc I noticed that Mr scream obscenities at 14 year old girls was at another hatefest that you guys did against Walker recently. You guys are consistent in some ways at least.

    1. You weren’t put into moderation; you landed there because of the number of links you posted in your comments.

      Glad we could clear that up.

    2. Yep. He’s losing it.

      “Welcome to ‘The Wingnut Zone’. I’m your host, Rod Serling.”

      [Camera zooms in. A lone wingnut emerges from his echo chamber as, against a darkening, stormy sky, lightening illuminates a sign. “Blogging Blue” was all it said.]

      Serling intones, “Where the white man and robber barons once roamed free and unencumbered, a solitary wingnut, let’s call him ‘Mr B’ now paces nervously, fearful, wild-eyed, paranoid, feeling the circle of progressive values tightening around him.

      The wingnut, hair-trigger delusions of persecution overwhelming him, nightmarish visions of evil, progressive ‘moderation’ filling his head, words tumbling incoherently out of his mouth, descends into madness.

      It had always JUST been a matter of time.

      “Annnnd, let’s go to commercial. Good job, Mr. Serling.”

      [LSMFT, 30-second spot.]

  5. I wouldn’t hold my breath, Zach. My own brother, who is a Tea Party sympathizer and supporter, posted a hateful comment directed at me on a thread on Facebook. He is angry because I sent him three separate news articles about an example of Tea Party hate directed at the left and the current president. There isn’t any human way to change them.

  6. Hey, Mr. B….

    Summer didn’t stop them when they came out in force to protest the ‘massive, massive, government takeover of healthcare’ in 2009.

    Two things have happened. First, the mainstream Republican party and the so-called Tea Party are one and the same. Second, because it was founded upon and attempts to continue as a rage-fueled effort, it must be acknowledged that some folks decide rage isn’t how they want to feel all the time. Anger flashes, burns and dies for most. Maybe even many.

    And then there’s a third possibility. Perhaps people have figured out that the extreme radical mainstream Republican party has no interest in serving their interests.
