I’ve long thought that the vast majority of the Left either fails to understand the point of the Tea Party or, and perhaps this is most likely, they are simply to ignorant and unread to understand it.
A couple of days ago, Sarah Palin, working to keep up enthusiasm among her supports, extolled them not to take anything for granted; “Don’t party like it’s 1773”!
Now, if I were an ignorant ass wanting to make fun of my mortal enemy, even I would, while reflexively laughing at everything she said would stop mid laugh and think:
Wait. WTF. 1773? Why would she say THAT date. I mean, it would be funny if she said, “Don’t party like it’s 2000”, or “Don’t party like it’s 2010” or some other nonsense. But 1773?
But no. The ignorant Leftists simply LOVE to hate her and attacked out of hand:
But check this out:
The Boston Tea Party was a direct action by colonists in Boston, a town in the British colony of Massachusetts, against the British government. On December 16, 1773, after officials in Boston refused to return three shiploads of taxed tea to Britain, a group of colonists boarded the ships and destroyed the tea by throwing it into Boston Harbor. The incident remains an iconic event of American history, and other political protests often refer to it.
Par for the course Leftist. Par for the course.
