Fail Quote: Tea Party Nation calls for damaging economy to hurt Obama

| »
Today’s conservative credo

The far-Right’s refrain for the last few months has been nothing but jobs and jobs creation (and defending the rather Orwellianly titled and apparently rather helpless “job creators”). Yet, here’s activist Melissa Brookstone at Tea Party Nation and launching a rather foot-shooting call for small business owners in her quest to further throw sticks in the Obama administration’s wheels:

Resolved that: The Obama administration and the Democrat-controlled Senate, in alliance with a global Progressive socialist movement, have participated in what appears to be a globalist socialist agenda of redistribution of wealth, and the waging of class warfare against our constitutional republic's heritage of individual rights, free market capitalism, and indeed our Constitution itself, with the ultimate goal of collapsing the U.S. economy and globalizing us into socialism.


I, an American small business owner, part of the class that produces the vast majority of real, wealth producing jobs in this country, hereby resolve that I will not hire a single person until this war against business and my country is stopped.

I don’t know if Brookstone is still stuck on Planet Wingnuttia or whether she’s only a recent immigrant and still has some learning to do about how reality operates over here, but in this world, the best way to fight the “collapsing” of “the U.S. economy” is specifically not to deliberately refuse to help lower near-historic unemployment levels in a blindly ideological attempt to hurt Obama’s presidency.

On the other hand, it is a perfect way to further illustrate the latent (if not rampant) selfishness and rank stupidity that has so thoroughly permeated the modern U.S. Right-wing in recent years. So, kudos for that, Ms. Brookstone. Admirably well done.
