The Tea Party and the Devil

April 25, 2011 05:40 PM EDT

First they called the Tea Party racist, then they called them stupid, then they called them ignorant trailer trash, then Janet Napolitano warned they were gun toting ex-US Veteran terrorists who needed to be watched--and now, angels of the Devil.

 

According to an article entitled “What have the Tea Party and the Church of Satan got in common? Answer: the sinister Ayn Rand” written by Tim Stanley of The Telegraph, because Tea Partiers believe in some of the teachings of Ayn Rand, and the Church of Satan used much of Rand’s philosophy for their gospel, it naturally follows that the Tea Party must also be devil worshipers.

 

Tea Party members are used to being called names. This has been the tactic of the liberal since the Tea Party movement first began. But worshipping the Devil is certainly a first. How the fact that many Tea Partiers have read Ayn Rand’s  “Atlas Shrugged” or have gone to see the recent movie is somehow connected to Devil Worship truly boggles the mind. On one of his many vacations, President Obama said he was reading a book on Ronald Reagan, therefore using the liberal logic above; this must mean Obama is a Conservative Republican.

 

Many of the people who have read “Atlas Shrugged” probably have no idea of this alleged association between Rand and the Church of Satan, nor do they care. Instead it is the premise of the book which they believe in--that &ldquoroducers are far more important than the looters” and when the looters become more powerful than the producers, the whole system will collapse.

 

We are seeing this in the United States today, where the people who contribute to the system are outnumbered by those who take from the system. It will only be a matter of time before those who are contributing decide it is no longer worth the time or effort to do so, and like those characters in “Atlas Shrugged,” will stop producing, and the system will come to a crashing halt.

 

Then perhaps the Left will truly know what living with Satan in hell truly is.

They don't know how to read, nor do they understand philosophy of Ayn Rand.

You cannot let ignorant people read, I can see that clearly.
