Only now are we discovering the full scope of the ominous threat that the Tea Party “movement” presents to those who cherish freedom of thought and tolerance for others.
So far they have taken aggressive steps to:
Defund Public Broadcasting
Gut Medicare (while shifting even more of our nation’s money into the pockets of their corporate donors)
Revoke workers’ right to organize
And that’s just their legislative agenda! The Right Wing Extremists are also taking their intimidation tactics to a new level with their use of records requests — harassing academic researchers and professors, and effectively chilling free and open debate. And we can’t forget their smears of the Muslim community…
If your blood boils when you see Glenn Beck and his pals on Fox News espousing their right-wing slanted propaganda, then you will fit right in with People For the American Way – please make your renewal contribution today.
Most Americans don’t even realize how much damage the Tea Party has already achieved by pushing for this ultra-conservative agenda, leading Republicans to a shocking gain of 63 seats to clinch the majority in the House of Representatives.
The Senate is seriously within their grasp next election too, with 23 of the 33 seats up for grabs belonging to Democrats and the two independents who vote with them. Can you imagine if these extremists also capture the Senate in 2012? Or the White House??
