Right-wing extremist Cantor claims tea party is not extreme

Face of the future majority in the House? Eric Cantor (center) and John Boehner (right)

House Republican Whip Eric Cantor, the Virginia Republican and darling of the party’s extreme right wing, claims tea party supporters are not extremists.

As compared to what?

Cantor told CBS’s “The Early Show” today that tea party activists “are people who are concerned about the fiscal state of this country.”

If Republicans recapture the House, Cantor pledged to work closely with the new tea party-backed GOP members as the new majority leader.

Of course he would. Cantor has close ties to the right-wing, well-heeled Koch brothers who back the tea party and paid for the GOP consulting firm that created Citizens for a Sound Economy, the phony grassroots organizatdion that spawned the tea party movement.

The election, Cantor said, is “not about personalities . … People are really upset. They’re tired at the spending in Washington.”

  1. Maybe Cantor could call DHS and tell them the same thing since they’ve seen fit to label tea party goers as potential terrorists.

  2. Griff, you are spot on. There are many who believe as you do.

    Concerning your comment on debasement of the US currency, the Communist Vladamir Lennon said it best:
    “The best way to destroy the capitalist system is to debauch the currency.”

    And there it is, from the mouth of a Communist.

    Excellent article Doug Thompson!

    I posted this on another board, I’ll post it again:
    “The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.”

    This is what the Koch brothers, John McCain, Sarah Palin and now Eric Cantor are doing. It’s right in front of our eyes. They are co-opting the Tea Party movement and neutering it from within.

    While I am not a Tea Party-ist, I cannot stand to see the fraudulent usurpation
    of a grass-roots movement by people who’s intention is to destroy their cohesion by guilt of association.

    • Excellent quotes by Comrade Lenin. He could have made a great Federal Reserve chairman.

      I’m not a Tea Partier either. Well, at least not since the original anti-tax, anti-Fed movement started by Ron Paul’s campaign was co-opted by the Establishment.

  3. Yep. In these days of rampant government waste and unprecedented corruption and cronyism, soaring deficits, unrelenting offshoring of our jobs, dissolution of national sovereignty for the “global good,” the unrepentant shredding of our Constitution and Bill of Rights, endless war and occupations, needless slaughter, America on the verge of depression, debasement of our currency, and the Marie Antoinette attitudes of the Hill People, I guess a little fiscal restraint seems pretty extreme.
