Tea Parties and the Left

Why is the liberal wing of this country so derisive about the tea parties held across the country. Isn't the essence of liberalism to espouse tolerance??? The left wing media has openly attacked those people who took part in the tea parties. Some of the media outlets ignored the parties all together (i.e. New York Times). Believe me, if the parties has been advocating pro-choice or any criticism of this country, the coverage would have been immense. Why are liberals so intolerant of the opposition? Why are liberals so opposed to any open discussion of ideas? Why are the liberals, the so-called defenders of the little people, showing so much disdain for those little people who don't agree with them? To paraphrase President Hoover, the only problem with liberals are liberals. If you want a prediction, the liberal wing of this country will enable a conservative comeback. They will so poison the moderates that they will eventually move back to the right. The sooner the better.

  1. Most liberals feel that the issue doesn't seem like something to get so upset about. It would be different if it were something more important, such as a 50% tax increase. Some liberals feel it's just a cry for attention, and that maybe Republicans are just seeking excuses to complain. Liberalism is quite open to discussion in most cases, if you think about it. It's kind of odd, because most liberals see conservatives and Republicans as the ones not open to ideas. Take Bill O'Reilly, for example. When someone on his show makes a point he disagrees with, he usually calls them a "pinhead" and cuts them off instead of actually considering what they have to say. It's almost like he feels he has to be right all of the time. It's pretty noticeable throughout the rest of the Fox News staff. I do agree that MSNBC was harsh on the tea party activist. I think they were the ones who first referred to them as "teabaggers," which has a more crude alternate meeting. This was a childish move. I think networks such as MSNBC should focus more on why they feel the reason isn't worth all the fuss instead of poking fun. That's Jon Steward's job, haha.
