Well, the 'barbarians' and 'sons of bitches' are at it again. As wildfires spread across Texas, covering over 100,000 acres so far, tea partiers are once again organizing and mobilizing, this time to help their fellow citizens.
The group Citizen Patriot Response is coordinating efforts. From its website
Citizen Patriot Response is preparing to begin delivering cold bottles of water to firefighters in the Bastrop area in an effort to do our part. Many other organizations and individuals in Texas are doing the same. We need support, we need more efforts initiated across the state, and we need communication and collaboration between group leaders to ensure that men and women fighting the Texas wildfires have full support.
The group will also provide a shelter for those families whose homes are threatened by the fires.
This is something the left would do well to try to understand. Of course we need a certain amount of government, but we need far less than they imagine. Free citizens have repeatedly banded together to assist one another.
They would also do well to rethink their virulent rhetoric about the tea party. Again, there isn't a 'tea party' per se.
Rather, it is simply some significant percentage of the American public who is concerned about the direction of this country. And, considering that over 70% of Americans think the country is on the wrong path, that's a whole lot of people.
To call these people 'barbarians', as the sitting Vice-President did the other day, isn't just vile and wrong, it is politically insane.
God speed to Citizens Patriot Response and tea party groups in Texas and good luck in their efforts to help those battling and victimized by the wildfires. Oh, and let us know if or when the Teamsters decide to pitch in.
