Dear Tea Party Patriots: We Are Family

As we enter the year which will make or break America as we know it, I wish to remind all of you that We Are Family.  Together, we took the House, and together we must take the White House. In my travels across our great land, six times on national “Our Country Deserves Better” and […]

Mitt Romney: Tea Party When Tea Party Wasn’t Cool

“Mitt Romney…is awesome.” You could hear the screams from around the room.  In the conservative and evangelical circles in which I travel, that pronouncement has the same effect as professing a hidden fantasy to enter into same-sex marriage with Harry Reid.  Bonkers, stark-raving bonkers!  And yet, after spending the last two weeks digging deep, looking […]

The Richmond Tea Party Audit and the First Amendment

When the Richmond Tea Party (RTP) wanted to hold a daytime rally under the right of peaceable assembly protected by the Virginia and United States Constitutions, the City of Richmond made the RTP spend about $ 8,500 on a special events permit, liability insurance, police presence, and other costs. The City of Richmond later allowed […]

The Tea Party Budget

Print Email Text Size The Spectacle Blog By Joseph Lawler on 11.18.11 @ 5:16PM The Tea Party Debt Commission that took place yesterday and got kicked out of the Senate has released a budget plan. It’s not clear to what extent this plan represents the views and preferences of Tea Partiers around the country, since […]

What Explains the Left’s Affinity for OWS and Abhorrence of the Tea Party?

The 99ers, which more accurately are 22ers, have no coalescing message other than a desire for a central command-and-control government, whether nationally or globally.  In other words, they share the kindred spirit of redistributive fairness with our puerile president.  Initially we saw the Muslim Brotherhood uprising, and now, with the Wall Street Spring, Barack Obama […]

Tea Party Message to Morgan Freeman: ‘My Name Is Ali Akbar’

Print Email Text Size The Spectacle Blog By Robert Stacy McCain on 9.28.11 @ 11:59AM Photo: Ali Akbar and Doug Hoffman Whenever I introduce Ali Akbar to friends, I usually feel compelled to add the explanation that he’s a Southern Baptist from Texas, which leaves him to relate the backstory: His African-American mother was a […]

Does Romney Truly Embrace Tea Party Principles?

I preface my following statements regarding Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney by enthusiastically saying, “ABO — Anybody But Obama.”  Any Republican is a thousand times better for America than Obama.  Obama is a mean-spirited, divisive man willing to sacrifice national black-white race relations to further his anti-America, socialistic, some say communist agenda.  (Gee, Lloyd, how […]

The ‘Pirate Party’ Wins in Germany

Via Der Spiegel: As Berlin election results came in on Sunday evening, sweaty members of the Pirate Party danced arm in arm beneath a disco ball at popular club in the city’s Kreuzberg district. The smell of marijuana spread through the informal party, where guests made their own sandwiches and drank bottled beer. “I can’t […]

Stop Calling the Tea Party Extreme. It Isn’t.

The left-leaning mainstream media and liberal Democratic politicians continue to refer to the Tea Party as extreme, wacko, and out of touch with the American public.  Clear evidence indicates exactly the opposite. Many of us are getting increasingly annoyed when we hear the Tea Party called extreme, right-wing wackos, or other unbecoming names along that […]

What is a nice Latino like me doing at a Tea Party like this?

Even though I have donated to Michele Bachmann’s campaign, I am not of the Tea Party. I am for it, but not of it. In order to explain “for, but not of,” I may also provide conservatives with an insight into their complex relationships with the Latino community going into 2012. Here goes. The Bronze […]
