In a debate over sequestration cuts on the Senate floor yesterday, Democrat Harry Reid felt the need to blame the tea party. He actually compared the tea party to anarchists, saying that they were different in that they are not violent but they don't believe in government at any level. Harry Reid notes that the tea party doesn't say it is against government, but then he goes on to say that this is basically what it amounts to.
But that's not all! Harry Reid then went on to say the following: “They're not doing physically destructive things to buildings and people, directly, but they are doing everything they can to throw a monkey-wrench into every form of government … that's what it's all about.” Reid continues, “Government is not inherently bad; Government is inherently good. That's why we have a Constitution and that's what we direct the activities of this government based upon.”
Government is inherently good? Tea partiers are like anarchists, they don't believe in government? While tea partiers don't do physical destruction “directly,” they are trying to destroy our government and its proper process? This is the level of rhetoric we are getting from Democrats nowadays.
