There seems to be some surprise out there in the blogosphere about teabaggers not really having that strong an opinion about gay marriage.
One needs to remember that the core of Tea Party history was a movement away from government interference in life, and toward issues concerning taxes and government spending. Many teabaggers have a live-and-let-live attitude toward private matters.
Where there’s a confluence of teabagging and anti-gay-marriage sentiment, it comes from:
- the rich conservative knuckleheads who use money and influence to push social and political agenda such as gay marriage, illegal immigration, and union-busting (the Koch brothers, the American Family Association, the National Organization for Marriage, and too many religious groups to name, among others)
- politicians making hay out of Tea Party-inspired unrest so these pinheads can keep their phony-baloney jobs and associated power (Michele Bachmann, Rick “Frothy Mix” Santorum, Mike Huckabee, and Tim Pawlenty, among too many others), and who will say anything to get someone to vote for them and give them campaign money
I mean, really, folks. Who else would brag that god has told them to run for the presidency? Who else would openly call for the criminalization of consentual sexual practices?
