mocktwinkie saidWow, lots of young people in that crowd. Wonder how many actually live in the real world and aren't subsidized by their parents.
And look at how little diversity in that crowd! It's mostly all white! ;)
It is possible actually to live in the real world, even while you are still with your parents. But i guess when the whole point of the rally is to mock the extreme, the extremists can only mock the rallyers.
Face it, mocktwinkie, that was a large and visible re-uh-FUDIATION - of you and your ilk. Now crawl back to the sidelines where you can resume screaming and stop disturbing the grown-ups.
The rest of the us are reassured to see there are a lot more rational middle of the roaders who are trying to take the focus back off the lunatic fringe that you represent so well.
the message of the rally could be summed up as: "If you have nothing constructive to say, say nothing.
Mock does not represent the lunatic fringe. His views are pretty mainstream and reflected in the polls. And he is a "grown-up". Sometimes you foreigners go too far and should keep your fucking opinions to yourself. You sure as hell had nothing constructive to say. GO HARPER, AND IF YOU DON'T SUPPORT HIM, YOU ARE A BAD CANADIAN. How's that for an inappropriate cross-border comment?
if you consider the Tea Party mainstream, then I suppose his views are. But the whole rally was to point out that what you are calling mainstream is not at all. The REAL mainstream is not being heard - just the loons.
(I define loons as anyone who keeps spreading misinformation however often it is demonstrated to be an outright falsehood.. Like the "death panels." mocktwinkie falls into that group.
If you cannot argue your political viewpoint with reality, you are either intellectually dishonest, malicious, or stupid. I do not know which he is.
but mainstream he is not.
The mainstream does not cling to a falsehood once it has been pointed out to them.
The problem is not Democrats vs Republicans, (or, in Canada) Liberals vs Conservatives. It is people deliberately repeating bullshit that has reduced politics to total intellectual dishonesty (usually from the right)
How long did it take before the Right stopped with the whole "Death Panel" bullshit? That was an outright lie and showed contempt for the electorate.
Stewart & Colbert have put the spotlight back on the MAJORITY who who are actually rational enough to say "there was NOTHING" in there about "death panels," so stop lying about it., please."
The MAJORITY is fed up with the lies. So stop it.
