    Default a class action suit against homosexuality?

    OK...I'm a big proponent of a third political party rising to power to break up the DNC/GOP strangle hold on government

    but the more I hear, the more I'm convinced that the Tea Party ain't it.

    aside from the fact that Sarah Palin considers herself to be on the leaders of the "party" ( have you seen some of her interviews lately?)....anyway, i digress

    one of the other high profile members has just talked about the possibility of a class action lawsuit against homosexuality

    who do you sue? every homosexual in the country? what do you do...start a list of things that are gay and start suing them all? Bravo TV? Broadway musical producers?... manufacturers of skinny jeans for men?

    When Rick Scarborough invited Peter LaBarbera, the man who believes there is a Big Gay Inc. and a gay hall of fame, to address his Tea Party Unity group today, anticipation was high for some hilarious Grade-A bigoted stupidity.

    They did not disappoint. Among selected topics, Scarborough and LaBarbera discussed the possibility of (I kid you not) somehow filing a "class action lawsuit" against homosexuality.

    "We need to work on our conservative, alternate media and say, 'look, don't do the pro-gay thing, why don't you rather step out and support these ex-gays?'" said LaBarbera. "We should encourage Fox News to tell their stories. Fox is now telling the stories of black conservatives because the other media is not doing that, we should all get on Fox and say, 'come on, tell these stories, these wonderful stories of happy men and women who have left the homosexual lifestyle.'"

    "Peter, the whole issue of a class action lawsuit, you and I have talked about this a little bit," said Scarborough. "I just wonder if you've explored that, talked to anyone about it. Obviously, statistically now even the Centers for Disease Control verifies that homosexuality much more likely leads to AIDS than smoking leads to cancer. And yet the entire nation has rejected smoking, billions of dollars are put into a trust fund to help cancer victims and the tobacco industry was held accountable for that. Any thoughts on that kind of an approach?"

    "Yeah I think that's great," LaBarbera replied. "I would love to see it. We always wanted to see one of the kid in high school who was counseled by the official school counselor to just be gay, then he comes down with HIV. But we never really got the client for that."

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    Statement from TeaParty365: Scarborough Not a Tea Partier, Doesn't Represent Our Values

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Media Contact: David Webb – david@teaparty365.org



    New York, NY … October 21, 2013 – Rick Scarborough is not a Tea Partier. He is not a Tea Party spokesperson, no matter what he, or the media, wants people to believe. Neither he, nor his organization “Tea Party Unity” speaks for the Tea Party, or properly represents our values.

    Like a lot of you, we were quite surprised, and saddened by this recent Gawker.com headline:

    “Tea Party Leader Wants to File Class Action Suit Against Homosexuality”

    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. We feel it is counter-productive to the national conversation, and ultimately harmful to the Tea Party brand, and the country.

    Let’s remember, the Tea Party was a true, national grassroots upwelling, initially a reaction to Bush’s profligacy. It exploded in early 2009 when it became obvious Obama was doubling-down on financial, and governmental stupidity.

    The Tea Party is and always has been about 4 very simple things:

    1) Smaller Government

    2) Fiscal Responsibility

    3) Personal Responsibility

    4) The Constitution


    Because our beliefs are so wonderfully simple, you can be a “Tea Partier” and also be involved in other political issues that aren’t mutually-exclusive, e.g., Gun Rights, Immigration, Abortion, The War on Drugs, etc.

    This is a blessing, and a curse. There are Tea Partiers across the country who are on all sides of these issues, and are also, still, technically “Tea Partiers” because they adhere to the 4 core tenets. The problem arises when these other issues override the core issues of the Tea Party. But the fact remains, when you are arguing for, or against, an issue that is ancillary to our 4 key tenets, you are no longer speaking for the “Tea Party.” This is the case with Mr. Scarborough.

    While he may very well also believe in Smaller Government, Fiscal Responsibility, Personal Responsibility, and The Constitution, his personal war against homosexuality has nothings –zero, nada, zilch– to do with the Tea Party. Although Tea Party Unity may claim to be a “leading national Tea Party group,” please understand that they do not –repeat: DO NOT represent the Tea Party Movement.

    America is, still, a free country. And we all know that can be a double-edged sword: this means that Rick Scarborough can claim he speaks for the Tea Party, but the press also has the responsibility to hold him to task.

    but he considers himself a leader with the Tea Party promoting the Tea Party Unity Summit on his websites

    I think that's part of the problem with the Tea Party...they call themselves a Party, but when it comes down to leadership and accountability, it all becomes murky and they start talking about not being a party, just a movement

    If we get a third party it won't be called the Tea Party. That's because it isn't a political party. Smaller Government, Fiscal Responsibility,Personal Responsibility,The Constitution. That's what they are about.

    Doubtful he would have ever been elected as an "independent." Republicans and Democrats collude to keep such people off the ballot to maintain the status quo. Once you've served for a while, you can get away with it. But if you don't play party politics, you don't play. Sad commentary on our republic.
