Yes, it’s a mixed metaphor. Deal
Tea Party Community—the new Facebook alternative—has come under relentless attack ever since it started getting some mainstream press about a week or so ago. By relentless attack, I mean trolls swarming all over the site, doing everything from being the obnoxious little pricks that they are, to trying to instigate acts of terrorism under the banner of the Tea Party (e.g., something like this). They’ve also DDOSed the site at least once.
Let me pose a question, because I genuinely don’t know the answer: How many times have left-wing sites been brought down by right-wing “activists”, or infiltrated by hundreds or thousands of conservatives bent on doing nothing but causing as much grief and criminal activity as possible amongst the left-wing community?
I’m going to go out on a limb here and answer my question with a guess: never. Never have a group of conservatives done anything remotely similar to what happens to every and any conservative community at the hands of liberals/leftists.
If true, the reasons for this abound. For starters, conservatives are generally kind, peaceable, honest, tolerant, and responsible. Liberals, in general, are just the opposite—snotty, belligerent, duplicitous, rabidly intolerant, and completely irresponsible. Additionally, conservatives generally feel the need to spend their time productively—typically, by working a job of some sort—while liberals, smugly suckling off the government teat and all too happy to live in squalor, have all the free time in the world with which to wreak their havoc.
And, as the traditional wisdom goes, an idle mind is the devil’s playground.
