Mote, beam, etc.

It looks like somebody was asleep or in a cave for the past eight years or so and dislikes the "Chicago Tea Party" protest thing:

The Tea Party Movement is basically a flag for Republicans disenfranchised by last year’s election results to rally behind. Give it up, guys. You lost fair and square. Obama and his policies have the mandate of the people- unlike a certain Bush I could mention.

If the country continues down this dark path, a second Civil War might not just be a cool idea for a sci-fi novel anymore.
This apparent foe of our First Amendment rights (which is rich, seeing as how he's a apparently a writer) talks about how "The Tea Party movement is an incredibly dangerous concept" and envisions "the potential for chaos if some of these ‘protesters’ decide to exercise the Second Amendment and bring their weapons to these rallies." Um, can you point out any instances where these protests have turned violent, you fucking cockholster?

And in spite of the supposed fascism of the last eight years, I don't remember anybody on the other side calling for the suppression of this...

This sort of thing, only milder so far, circa 2004 in NYC, is retroactively uncool.

Eight years (plus, I'm guessing) of anti-Bush vitriol were fine and dandy.  Now, though, protests are a threat to the stability of the Republic...
On April 15th, hundreds of thousands of PO’d red meat eatin’ Americans will converge on the streets to protest the Obama administration’s policies and platforms.
Aaaaaaannnd, this is suddenly a problem. Perhaps the lack of paper mache heads makes it so.
I hope April 15th comes and goes without major incident. And I hope the protesters fail in their mission to bring their message to a national audience. It’s a message of fear, prejudice and, quite frankly, hate.

President Obama was elected democratically, according to the doctrines set forth by the Founding Fathers. The Tea Party movement represents a real danger to the tenets of democracy Americans have embraced for centuries.

I refer the author of the piece, again, to the last eight years. But, oops, silly me! Everything has Hopeychanged.

And dissent is no longer the highest form of patriotism. What a fucking shock, huh?
