  • Sure is a lot of those Tea Partiers. Wonder why?

    Could be their platform.
    1. Eliminate Excessive Taxes
    2. Eliminate the National Debt
    3. Eliminate Deficit Spending
    4. Protect Free Markets
    5. Promote Civic Responsibility
    6. Abide by the Constitution of the United States
    7. Reduce the Overall Size of Government
    8. Believe in the People
    9. Avoid the Pitfalls of Politics
    10. Maintain Local Independence

    I can see why these socialist would be afraid of the Tea Party.

    • @lakota74 The problem at the moment is the lack of regulations, not the contrary, your masters want you to believe that tripe. Hello? Open your eyes, Corporations are running roughshod over your country and still you back them.

    • @Canguy66: Regulations? Like the community reinvestment act? That was a real barn burner and outright success.

      And Sarbanes Oxley, sure helped to prevent Lehman Brothers and Bear Stearns from taking a giant dump on the tax payers.

      All more regulation does is allow for those in power to give "special favors" to their friends on Wall Street as they look the other way while crushing medium and small businesses.

  • The Tea Party is made up of average people who are annoyed by government overreach... So naturally, the elites think they're stupid and worthless. And please tell me how amenable the government or the left is amenable to compromise these days?

  • The Tea Party.. What have they done? They are a very small faction yet they stand for something so threatening to the left, war was declared on them as soon as the Dems heard their message. Smaller government....less spending.
    This is enough to send Dems to DEFCON 4 and you dems are so brainwashed you lap up every bit of spittle.
    What the Hell is so threatening about a government that spends within its means

  • Nothing has scared both parties to the core in a long time. We are talking about 50 and 60 yr old grandmas and grandpa's.
    Nationalists lol. They are the farthest thing from the nationalists. Tea party people can't stand republicans more than the democrats because they were expectd to know better. They are waking up America to the major issues both parties have been bullshitting everybody on for so long.

  • Anarchists? notice he can't cite ANYTHING "bad" the Tea-party does? The Tea-party is challenging the government to curb its god damn spending. What the fuck is radical about that? Its radical to the left because that is what their socialist agenda depends on. Fuck this decrepit left wing shill.

  • The Tea Party and Libertarians are feared and hated by BOTH party's, huge corporations and the elites because they won't "play ball" politically and threaten the status quo of collusion and corruption that makes them all rich and powerful.

  • I don't get it. Tea party-ers are what made the nation grow to the strength in which it was. It wasn't until progressivism and socialist left began to run things that the nation began to slowly but surely deteriorate, yet somehow they're [tea party] the problem because the left likes to use "science" when common sense is the winning element.

  • I forced myself to listen to one minute and 56 seconds of this dribble before shutting it off.

    This old fool is so far off the mark, it's obvious his status as a professor - and subsequent opinion - is wholly irrelevant.

    But, the liberal/socialist/communist ballot cattle will nod their bobble-heads and agree as they rub their chins and grasp for any straw to ward off the TEA Party boogyman.

    Smoke another one, guys....

      his status as a professor - and subsequent opinions are dependent on a bloated government.
      A fiscally responsible government has no use for quacks like this idiot.

  • Listening to Noam Chomsky actually makes you dumber.

    Hard to think of anyone who has been more consistently wrong headed about history and government.

    And true to form, every single thing he said about the tea party here was pure bullshit.

  • When Chomsky says "Opposed to compromise," he really means 'Opposed to doing exactly what we think you should do." His psychotic belief in his own holy version of truth is not only condescending, it's wrong.

  • notice the interviewer made his own assumptions..
    and both opinions are invalid on their face..
    and they are not anarchists
    they are not a party it is a movement..
    neither of these people have it right..

      Giant corporations are just as harmful as Giant Government.

      True revolutionaries are centrist Libertarians.

      You are the same archetypal person as the leftists you hate. You treat current affairs and politics like its a fucking football game. Just root for your side unconditionally without ever thinking about anything critically.

      Your simple minded, two-dimension view of politics (and that of your hated counter-parts on the left) is what keeps the corrupt in power.
