A Movement Based on Substance?

Just some Wright State students asking questions to people who compose the Tea Party movement.

To pretend as if one side or group has a hold upon stupidity is unfair.  Just as many people opposed Bush who were equally as clueless as to why they did.  What is more dangerous is the fact that there are more specific outlets that feed into the current growth of Conservative extremism.  Misinformation is peddled by Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity, Levin, Church, Wilkow, Palin, Rove, Cheney (daughter and father) and so on.

This speaks to my previous post in regards to the fact the above listed figures have stirred people in opposition to something they do not understand.  They are against it because they are told to be (again it works in both directions).

Maybe it is my entire disagreement with all that the people say and are told in the videos above that colors me in a way that is more bothered by them, but I think that it is not just a fringe with no voice that should be ignored.
