Quote Of The Week

"The Tea Party Republicans in Washington claim they’re concerned about the budget balance, but it’s a disguise! It’s not true! It’s a lie! That’s not what they want. They want — they want other people not to be able to have their own opinions. They don’t deserve the freedoms that are in the Constitution! But we’ll give them to them anyway."

Sen Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ)

Tea Party members don't deserve Constitutional freedoms? Since when do we have to "deserve" our rights? We lose the right by practicing it?

This sentiment is funny considering those on the left will defend the rights of the lowest POS criminal. Rapists, pedophiles, murderers, etc.

They defended the right to freedom of speech for NBPP members who used that right to intimidate voters with night sticks outside a polling place.

Yet the Tea Party should not have the right to espouse their political views?

Then there is the arrogance. "But we will give them to them anyway."

This part is scary.

It would be easy to pass this off as getting wrapped up in the moment, and the media will, but this came from somewhere.

The left really believes that our freedoms come from the government to the people. This means the government can take them back if they want to. That is the kind of thought process found frequently throughout history in places like Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, China, Cuba, Venezuela, etc.

To them freedom is a privilege and the government decides if one is deserving.

This cannot be dismissed considering the actions of the left in recent history. Think of the Fairness Doctrine, Obamakare and it's mandate (and the build-up of the IRS to enforce it), the Department of Homeland Security classifying the right as potential terrorists, recent school reforms mandating food choices, attempts to gut the Second Amndment.

This was no slip of the tongue. Moments like this give us a glimpse into the mind of the left and their vision for America.

I wish the Democratic Party would police its members better. We need a two party system to survive, but the pukes that spew this nonsense need to be voted out so that they have no power, no control, and no more opportunity to ruin the country any further.

LA, the problem is there are few of today's Democrats that truly disagree with him. He is just saying what the rest of them are thinking. Quite frankly, he probably should be given grudging respect for having the stones to say it out loud.

Not just rapists and pedophiles, leftists love Muslim terrorists too.

It is indeed a revealing statement, like I always say - scratch a leftist and you'll find a totalitarian fascist real soon.
