Meet Tim Randal. He is now the former leader of the Big Sky Tea Party in Montana. Here is what lead to his fall from power:
Tim Ravndal: "Marriage is between a man and a woman period! By giving rights to those otherwise would be a violation of the constitution and my own rights"
Keith Baker: "How dare you exercise your First Amendment Rights?"
Dennis Scranton: "I think fruits are decorative. Hang up where they can be seen and appreciated. Call Wyoming for display instructions."
And while people might be quick to commend the Tea Party on firing him, they must also ask themselves “how did he get in power?”.
Randal isn’t the first high profile Tea Party person to make such vile comments. Remember back in July when Tea Partier in Chief wrote a rather racist filled letter to Abraham Lincoln, acting like he was the President of the NAACP? That lead to Williams falling from power within the party (as far as we know), but yet he was also able to gain a position of power before showing his true, hate-filled side.
So with stories coming out every week exposing the extremist views of the Tea Party, the kind of views that would make the Taliban proud, America should stop and ask if this is the kind of views we want our country to be recognized for. Do we really want political leaders echoing the same kind of rhetoric that we are used to hearing from Mahmoud Ahmadinejad? This American sure as hell don’t want that.
