For three years, since its unveiling, we at AATTP have called the Tea Party what it truly is: A right-wing FASCIST, racist hate-group. This week a Texas TEApublican not only admitted the Tea Party’s fascist tendencies, but also defended them.
James Ives is president of the Greater Fort Bend County Tea Party, and the former director of propaganda for the American Fascist Party (AFP). When interviewed by the Texas Tribune, Ives revealed that fascists and the Tea Party are one and the same,
“From my point of view, it was all pro-Constitution, pro-America. I never did anything. There really weren’t enough people involved to be a gathering, let alone a rally. It was basically a scattering of people across the continent just complaining.”
Hmm…sounds like the Tea Party!
It gets worse! Here’s a post from Ives on the American Fascist Party message board.
“Gentlemen, first let me say that I am proud to be a member, no, VERY proud to be a member of the American Fascist Party. In the growth of this group over a short time, there can truly be said to be signs of light in the tunnel of recent national history. THE VERY FACT THAT SUCH A GROUP CAN GET TOGETHER AT ALL, AND FLOURISH, SAYS THAT THERE IS STILL LIFE IN THE FURROWS AND HILLS, THE BAYOUS AND GLENS OF OUR AMERICA!
Seth (referring to Seth Tyrssen) has done a masterful job of grooming and nurturing the Party, and it is upon this rock that we shall grow and define the coming age. If we take this time seriously, if we see it as the seedling of the time-to-come, then anything will be possible. Here in Texas, there is a great mistrust of the current state of affairs in government, be it local, statewide or national. But also there is old-fashioned patriotism. This calls into play the great burden of the non-stop media indoctrination of the minds of the land, the incessant voice that says if you are against the status quo, then you are against America. Well, WE know this to be utter nonsense, but it will be our greatest challenge, and our sweetest victory, to finally surpass this dark menace, this numbing threat from the shadows, and replace it with the pure sunbeam that is our Fascist Faith, our Fascist Truth.
I will, in any way, help the Party to reach its’ goal of a better America, and a better future for our people. Let our cry be of FAITH in the future, love of FAMILY in this present desert of the emotions, and always NATION as the beacon of our lives, and the touchstone for the security of our children.
FAITH, FAMILY, and NATION!!!”
This fascist rhetoric is indistinguishable from Tea Party rhetoric.
“However we are seeing a new inner struggle, one that has long been simmering and festering just below the surface of our society. One that not only threatens the Citizens and our way of life, but looms over the very fabric of our national existence.
What were called the “Culture Wars” in the eighties have evolved into a full-blown assault upon the traditions, the values and the Identity of the American People. This is a force seeking to re-write the American Experience in a grimmer and far more sinister tone.
This relentless attack is focused on exactly what it means to BE an American, on those long-cherished ideals and icons that have forever been signposts to help us along the twisting path of History.
These include individual responsibility, the Freedoms of Speech, of Assembly, of Religion and of Choice in your own life, our blessed Liberty, and the Trinity of Faith, Family and Nation. This is a struggle for the very word “America,” for the memories of our fathers, for the life that we lead today and the possibilities that we leave for the future. A new battle is being waged and it needs a new defender of the Nation, a new breed of Political Soldier. As such soldiers, we fight not in the trenches, but in the minds and hearts of the People, with words, conviction and iron-hard determination. “
