Think progress posted that T.P.Nation head, Judson Phillips sent a commentary by author Timothy Birdnow that blames Teachers,Unions,Bureaucracy,Sex and Pop Culture among other things, for the shootings in CT! Posted on the TPN website, and circulated to Tea Party Members,Mr. Birdnow rants about all of  " the so-called societal ills", that the TP blames as causes, and the continued decline of America! Apparently spankings in Schools is missed!(who knew)

He also managed to name Django,the movie(Starring Jamie Foxx,and from Quentin Tarantino) that hasn't been released yet as a example of violence glorified! But maybe his lowest point was to suggest that George Zimmerman(The man accused of killing 17 year old Trayvon Martin who was returning from a neighborhood 7/11) patrol schools! As you know I am not good with posting,if some one would please upload the article from think progress I'd be obliged!

None of us are too surprised at the antics of the WestBoro Church(bigoted,intolerant,useless,hateful controversy seeking clowns), Who blame the victims themselves for their deaths,but the Tea Party is supposedly trying to mainstream(spiff up their images to become the gentler political party),the republicans have shown interest in tapping Mark Rubio(A Tea Party politician), as their representative for higher office.We know that with freedom our society has a great deal of issues. The  fictional violence,because some can't distinguish between reality and fiction, should tread lightly, as well as music,etc. and as a person of deep faith,I don't have too much issue with prayer in public(no offence to non-believers)because I can Love my fellow human beings with out force feeding them My Beliefs

This is sad but true,they HAVE NOT LEARNED A DAMN THING!

Tea Party Group Blames Connecticut Shooting On Teachers, Unions, And Sex

By Jeff Spross on Dec 17, 2012 at 12:35 pm

A piece posted to the Tea Party Nation website yesterday, and sent to the group's members in an email from TPN head Judson Phillips, blamed the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut on teachers, unions, bureaucracy, and the presence of sex in popular culture. In a lengthy screed that's essentially a round-up of every major cultural and policy grievance the American right holds with the rest of the country, author Timothy Birdnow cited concerns about the mental health of shooter Adam Lanza, the lack of spanking in schools, and the new movie "Django Unchained" - among other things - as evidence that American popular culture "has made murder, rape, mayhem, hatred, and violence ‘cool.'"

He then went on to recommend a number of interesting solutions, including a lamentation that George Zimmerman was not guarding Sandy Hook Elementary School:

Homeschool. Take away the power of the radicals in the classrooms. Makes your kids safer, too.

Back Right to Work legislation for the public sector. Teacher's unions have helped cement much of this in place. As long as we have group think in the classrooms we will never see the end of this. [...]

Work to devolve power back to the parents, the local officials, and the communities. A society that is top-down will inevitably lead to alienation of the sort we have seen here. This young man was twenty years old, and his actions were neither spurious nor random. As an FBI profiler said on television last night, he undoubtedly felt powerless and sought to remedy that. Why does a twenty year old feel powerless? He could leave his mother's home at any time at his age. He feels powerless because he has lived in an over-bureaucratized society, one run ultimately from a far-away central location. [...]

Restrict the sex in movies, television, on the internet. There is a reason why young people commit these sorts of crimes, and sex plays no small part. Their passions are eternally inflamed, and they wander the Earth with no outlet for their overstimulated glands. [...]

Support the creation of local organizations to act as "neighborhood watch" for schools. Had George Zimmerman been at the front door instead of some mechanical card reader those children would still be alive. Perhaps it's time we start asking for volunteers to protect our children. It will require security checks, but isn't that worth it? This dovetails with the union problem; the unions will fight this measure tooth-and-nail.

This isn't the first time Tea Party Nation has indulged in extremist outbursts. Members of the group chanted "pay for it yourself," suggesting the uninsured should finance their own health care out of pocket, at protests during the Supreme Court hearings on Obamacare. In 2011, TPN e-mailed a message urging businesses to "not hire a single person" in protest against Obama's presidency. And Phillips also responded to the controversy over Mitt Romney's tax returns by suggesting Republicans inquire whether President Obama is a drug addict.

You can show all manners of violence and gore on television.

Show a woman's nipple and the entire country freaks out.

I think we've got our priorities backwards sometimes.

There are too many exclamation points. I don't like the over use of exclamation points.

James Dobson, the Focus on the Family freak, says that it is because of gay marriage and abortion.

The lows these people will sink to shouldn't surprise me anymore.

The Tea Party was hijacked by nuts!!

When it started it was NOT a Republican party people it was people of all parties that were sick of the government getting too big.

This boy was born this way he would of snaped sooner or later. What he needed was a padded sell.

The TP is ruining the GOP.  They've got to move away from this kind of extremism or they are sunk as far as moderate Republicans go.
