Tea Party Disavows Rick Scarborough, Distances Itself from 'Class Action Suit Against Homosexuality'

David Webb

We all knew that when Tea Party leader Rick Scarborough proposed a class action lawsuit against homosexuality he was off his nut, or at least off his meds. It would seem that David Webb of TeaParty365 (pictured), one of the original Tea Party founding groups, felt the same way as he issued a press release utterly disavowing Scarborough for his actions, distancing TeaParty365 and the Tea Party movement as a whole from his wingnuttery. The statement says, in part:

As one of the true founding Tea Party groups, TeaParty365 would like to take this opportunity to once again, and once-and-for-all, distance ourselves –and the larger Tea Party Movement– from the self-serving antics of Rick Scarborough, and his ilk. 

TeaParty365 does not support this idiotic notion [of suing homosexuality]. We feel it is counter-productive to the national conversation, and ultimately harmful to the Tea Party brand, and the country. 

One can only hope that this is the first symptom of the Tea Party cleansing itself of the insanity that has infected it since its inception.


Bachmann On Govt Shutdown: GOP 'The Happiest I've Seen In...A Long Time' - VIDEO

Crazymichele

In a Fox News appearance today, Tea Party leader Michele Bachmann (R-MN) opted for an upbeat and infuriating message about her GOP compatriots' solidarity and strength during the messy government shutdown still underway.

"We're really very energized today, we're very strong," she assured the anchors. "This is about the happiest I've seen members in a long time because we see that we're starting to win this dialogue on a national level." Jon Stewart (and presumably many others) might just disagree.

Watch the insanity, AFTER THE JUMP...

Tennessee Republican Rejects Young Girl's Request For Help While Crowd Cheers - VIDEO

Tenn Rep

The young girl, whose name is Josie, according to the video's description, was at the tea party event of over 200 people to ask a question about immigration reform. She looked Tennessee Republican Rep. Scott Desjarlais in the eye and asked "Mr. Desjarlais, I have papers but my daddy doesn't, what can you do to make sure he can stay?" 

JosieAccording to the National Day Laborer Organizing Network, the group that uploaded the video to YouTube, Josie's father is in the middle of the deportation process. "Since her father was placed in deportation proceedings, she's been going to therapy to deal with the anxiety," the group reports. Her apparent bravery unfortunately did little to sway Rep. Desjarlais, who thanked her for speaking before saying, "The fact still remains that we have laws and we need to follow those laws." Politics aside, Desjarlais' response would likely seem civil to most...if it wasn't for the fact that members of the crowd were enthusiastically expressing their support in the background. 

If Desjarlais's name seems at all familiar to you, Joe. My. God. can help you jog your memory:

"You may recall that Rep. Scott DesJarlais' (R-TN) campaign website bills him as working to outlaw abortion and as a defender of God-ordained man-woman marriage "and PROUD OF IT." But in typical Teapocrisy style, his own divorce papers revealed him to be an adulterer many times over who pressured one of his mistresses to abort his child."

Corsi: Marriage Equality Will Lead To Polygamy, Pedophilia, Priests Charged With Hate Crimes: VIDEO

Jerome Corsi


Jerome Corsi, author and "resident crackpot" of WND, was one of the speakers attending the Eagle Forum's Collegians Summit in Washington DC. During his speech, he spouted many familiar arguments frequently used by homophobic conservatives, that marriage equality will inevitable lead to polygamy and pedophilia. 

"It's very hard, once these barriers are broken, once the logic of a Judeo-Christian faith is broken down, so that people no longer believe in fundamental issues such as sin...We begin heading towards a kind of Paganism that we've done before. Ancient Rome experimented with this."

Corsi also cautioned those in attendance that establishing a constitutional right to same-sex marriage would inevitably lead to hate crime charges against anyone "who preaches a Biblical, Judeo-Christian interpretation that anything except a marriage between a man and a woman is a sin."

Marco Rubio at CPAC: Denying Gays the Right to Marry 'Does Not Make Me a Bigot' - VIDEO

Rubio

Florida Senator Marco Rubio spoke at CPAC Thursday afternoon, Think Progress reports:

I respect people who disagree with me on certain things, but that means they have to respect me too. Just because I believe states should have the right to define marriage in a traditional way does not make me a bigot. Just because we believe that life, all human life, all life, all human life is worth of protection in every stage of its development doesn’t make you a chauvinist. In fact, the people who are actually close minded in American politics are people who love to preach about the certainty of science in regard to our climate, but ignore the absolute fact that life begins at conception.

Alabama GOP Official Compares Obama to Hitler, Says He's Going to Gay-Indoctrinate the Nation's Children: VIDEO

Zeanah

An Alabama GOP official warns of the dangers of the Common Core State Standards Initiative to develop educational benchmarks that states can voluntarily adopt, comparing Obama to Hitler in the process, Right Wing Watch reports:

During a speech at the Wetumpka Tea Party, Elois Zeanah of the Alabama Federation of Republican Women compared the adoption of Common Core to the indoctrination of children in Nazi Germany, with President Obama teaching children and imposing an “anti-Christian, anti-capitalism, anti-America…pro-homosexuality, illegal immigration, unions, environmentalism, gun control, feminism and social justice” curriculum.

“They are going to force us to pay to indoctrinate our own kids,” Zeanah warned, “this is not a novel like ‘1994’ [sic], it’s Common Core.”
