Grifter Judson Phillips and his for-profit Tea Party Nation is at it again. The other day we castigated him for labeling the Occupy Wall Street demonstrators “Nazis” and “communists.” Today, his target is the Obama administration; his tactic is destruction of Obama by way of the suicide of businesses, a severe scorched-earth tactic but in line with the Republican belief that if they can’t have America, nobody should, and akin to adults who like to kill their children when they kill themselves. You know, American values.
Tea Party Nation posted a grandiose and overwrought-sounding “Call For A Strike of American Small Businesses Against The Movement for Global Socialism” by Melissa Brookstone, naturally beginning with an Ayn Rand quote. What does Melissa want? Melissa wants people to stop hiring other people. She wants business owners to make like monks and climb on pyres and set themselves alight. Don’t hire anyone, is her message as she makes like a fascist of the 20’s railing against “international bolshevism.” And, of course, Occupy Wall Street is again a target:
“I’m on strike!” – Ellis Wyatt, from the end of the movie “Atlas Shrugged, Part 1″, based on the novel by Ayn Rand,
Resolved that: The Obama administration and the Democrat-controlled Senate, in alliance with a global Progressive socialist movement, have participated in what appears to be a globalist socialist agenda of redistribution of wealth, and the waging of class warfare against our constitutional republic’s heritage of individual rights, free market capitalism, and indeed our Constitution itself, with the ultimate goal of collapsing the U.S. economy and globalizing us into socialism.
Resolved that: President Obama has seized what amount to dictatorial powers to bypass our Congress, and that because the Congress is controlled by a Progressive socialist Senate that will not impeach one of their kind, they have allowed this and yielded what are rightfully congressional powers to this new dictator.
Resolved that: By their agenda and actions, those in our government who swore oaths to protect and defend our Constitution have committed treason against the United States.
Resolved that: The current administration and Democrat majority in the Senate, in conjunction with Progressive socialists from all around the country, especially those from Hollywood and the left leaning news media ( Indeed, most of the news media) have worked in unison to advance an anti-business, an anti-free market, and an anti-capitalist (anti-individual rights and property ownership) agenda.
Resolved that: These same factions expect that, by carrying out a radical anti-business agenda, which includes the passage and inflicting of ObamaCare” on our nation, class warfare and redistribution of wealth, and expanding the government, while killing businesses in this country with an environment hostile to business, including excessive regulations (the average business must now spend about $11,700 per year per employee to comply with government regulations!), and by borrowing and wasting more money than has been spent in the entire previous existence of our republic, that they will “create jobs”, when in fact all they have “created” have been government jobs that consume wealth, and don’t “create” it.
Resolved that: Our President, the Democrats-Socialists, most of the media, and most of those from Hollywood, have now encouraged and supported “Occupy” demonstrations in our streets, which are now being perpetrated across the globe, and which are being populated by various marxists, socialists and even communists, and are protesting against business, private property ownership and capitalism, something I thought I’d never see in my country, in my lifetime.
I, an American small business owner, part of the class that produces the vast majority of real, wealth producing jobs in this country, hereby resolve that I will not hire a single person until this war against business and my country is stopped.
I hereby declare that my job creation potential is now ceased.
“I’m on strike!”
Never mind the hyperbole; never mind the sheer, grotesque dishonesty of this manifesto. The Tea Party is a nihilistic, anarchist movement. This is proven again and again by their utterances. Fast becoming irrelevant, all they can do at this point is to double down on the battle cry of “America for us or for nobody!” and hope people will get angry enough not to listen to what’s really being offered.
Republicans and Tea Partiers aren’t interested in creating jobs in the first place so this manifesto is a bit disingenuous. They’ve done nothing to create jobs and in fact have lost America jobs and want to kill as many more jobs as they can. They’re more interested in what a woman does with her own uterus and in who sleeps with whom than in saving America’s economy.
The whole process is, besides being a scorched earth tactic, to cut off one’s nose to spite their face. What is in it for a business owner, holding off on hiring for a position that needs to be filled, just to hurt employment numbers in an effort to make Obama look bad? How is that going to help the business person? Are they really willing to run their businesses into the ground to run Obama into the ground?
And do they really think, after running America into the ground in order to get at Obama, that Americans will welcome them as saviors in 2012? If so, they and the Tea Party Nation deserve each other. Because look at the logic of this again: They want small-business owners to stop hiring people to protest an administration that has supposedly made it impossible for them to hire people….If this makes sense to you, leave now and join the Tea Party Nation.
