Harry Reid: Tea Party Is Made Up Of Anarchists

05.02.13 09:01 PM

Last week, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid blamed Tea Party candidates for Congressional dysfunction and claimed that supporters of the small-government movement are advocates for anarchy.

“We have a situation where this country has been driven by the Tea Party for the last number of years. When I was in school, I studied government, and I learned about the anarchists,” Reid said. “Now, they were different than the Tea Party because they were violent. But they were anarchists because they did not believe in government in any level and they acknowledged it. The Tea Party kind of hides that.”

This week, speaking on “The Rusty Humphries Show,” Reid doubled down on his remarks.

“I believe that, my experience with the Tea Party is that they are against government in any form. They throw monkey wrenches into the government,” he said. “It’s evident. We can’t get things done. They don’t want anything to happen in government. We pass laws. They fight funding the laws we pass. They don’t want government to work. I want it to work.”

Meanwhile, Tea Party adherents and libertarian-leaning Republicans like Senators Rand Paul of Kentucky and Ted Cruz of Texas continue to gain supporters throughout the Nation who recognize them as something different from the two-Party status quo.

Reid’s condemnation of the Tea Party, combined with recent criticisms of small-government junior legislators by the likes of Republican bureaucratic dinosaurs such as Senators John McCain (Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (S.C.), should do nothing but make Tea Party lawmakers more appealing to an American public that has been repeatedly screwed by the old guard of both major political parties.
