Speaking about the Tea Baggers he referred to them as “fighting on the fighting lines of what we know is a battle for our democracy.”
Our troops are on the front lines of battle. Not Tea Baggers. There is no comparison. Like I said, I don't even think delusion is an accurate term anymore. I don't even think Fantasy World captures the true unreality these people live in. There is no other way to say it, they really believe they are Freedom Fighting Revolutionaries.
When asked to defend his claim about Freedom Fighting on the front lines, Cantor retreated and then threw out a huge lie to rally the troops.
That's just not true. Do we have to go through this again?
Q: You told tea party activists that they are on the “fighting lines,” that was your quote, of defending our democracy. Do you really think Obama is a threat to our democracy?
CANTOR: What I do think is that we’ve had an unprecedented 8 months in Washington of continued increase in bailouts [...]
Q: So just to be clear, our democracy is completely secure under Obama?
CANTOR: I think we need to be very, very cognizant of the drift that we are seeing towards more government takeover [...]
George Bush increased government more than any president since FDR. It is bona fide truth George Bush bailed out more companies than Barack Obama. Bush ordered the federal government to takeover AIG, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Bear Sterns, CitiGroup along with 234 individual banks, he was the president that signed the $700 billion TARP bailout. It was a Republican that integrated the federal government into private industry more so than any president in 80 years. Own it!
But that's not all of it either. It was George Bush that created Homeland Security, the largest government department in history. It was George Bush that implemented No Child Left Behind, the largest government takeover of education in American history. It was Bush that gave us the Patriot Act, and warrantless spying-- two programs that by far instrument the largest federal interference into the lives of private citizens since WWI.
For Eric Cantor to say that the last 8 months are "unprecedented" when it comes to government bailouts, all because Obama carried through with the auto industry plan that was already in the works before he took office, is an outright lie. You can go suck a big fat one Cantor.
No president did more to create unprecedented government growth and intrusion than George W. Bush. And never, not one time did Cantor or the Tea Baggers rally to stop him. Never did they protest Bush's actions and call themselves Freedom Fighters. Anyone who dared call Bush out for any of his large government expansion programs was denounced as succumbing to Bush-hatred syndrome or being anti-American. For the 8 years of George Bush, Tea Baggers were no where to be found. They gladly supported a president that called for war without end, large government expansion programs, warrantless spying, socialized entire industries, and spent more money than any in history.
But now, they are against government bailouts, huge expansion programs and spending federal dollars. Eric Cantor, you are a liar and a bad one at that.
I rest my case.
Cantor tells sick constituent to look for "existing government programs," or perhaps "charitable organizations." He added, "No one in this country, given who we are, should be sitting without an option to be addressed."
The same Eric Cantor that says he and Tea Baggers are on the fighting lines fighting for Democracy and against the spread of government, encourages a constituent to look for government programs to help with medical care and expenses. He even plainly states no one should be denied the option of having their need/sickness addressed. He's such a Freedom Fighter and so against government that he thinks people with medical needs should look to the government for help; it's so imperative that no one should go without it. There is definitely something morally wrong with this whole thing.
