Tea Party Express Asks Media to Hold President Obama Accountable for Outrageous Statements
A full day has passed since the Tea Party Express called on James Hoffa to apologize for this harmful rhetoric, and asked President Obama to condemn such dangerous remarks by those close to him. Having received no response, Tea Party Express is now asking for the media to hold President Barack Obama accountable for the series of malicious and false attacks against the Tea Party movement.
Whenever some crackpot in America says and does something, the liberal media and leftist political figures always ask leaders in the tea party movement to condemn and disassociate from this errant behavior or rhetoric. Their claim of seeking “civility” rings hollow when you see key supporters of Obama uttering hateful and disturbing statements that have no place in the political dialogue without rebuke.
Teamster President Jimmy Hoffa’s dangerous and irresponsible remarks as he introduced President Barack Obama in Detroit where he exhorted the crowd to “take these sons of bitches out” is only the latest example.
Tea Party Express chair Amy Kremer said, “Jimmy Hoffa’s remarks are on the heels of Vice President Biden calling us terrorists; Congresswoman Maxine Waters telling tea party activists to “go to hell,” and Congressman Andre Carson’s outrageous claim that the tea party supports lynchings.”
“The President has seems to forget that he is the President of all of the people, not the narrow left-wing that wants to continue to bankrupt America. He should tell his supporters to stick to the issues instead of hate speech.
“Lying attacks on the tea party movement have disturbingly increased in recent days. It is high time that elected leaders like President Obama were held accountable when their key supporters engage in harmful and divisive rhetoric.
“We urge President Obama to strongly rebuke Hoffa, Waters, Carson, and his own Vice-President for their dangerous comments. Since has so far refused, we ask the media to hold him accountable.”
