In an op-ed published on Tuesday, an Illinois State University professor made numerous baseless accusations leveraged at the good people of the Tea Party. Steve Hochstadt stated:
“Tea party politicians don’t like people who are out of work. In Congress and in campaigns they consistently oppose paying unemployment insurance to the most distressed citizens, those who have been out of work for the longest time.”
In reality, members of the Tea Party don’t want to pay for the bottom feeders of society to sit on their rear ends all day while the rest of us foot the bill. But Hochstadt doesn’t have time for all that logic. He went on to say:
“They don’t like immigrants. Most of those who identify with the tea party want to deport all undocumented immigrants. But tea party supporters don’t like immigrants in general: Over half think that ‘immigrants’ take away jobs from ‘Americans.”
Then, Hochstadt went on to call all members of the Tea Party racist. Of course, he has no evidence to back any of these claims up. Liberals don’t like to get tied up with pesky evidence. Hochstadt ranted:
“[Tea partiers harbor] generally negative beliefs about African-Americans. They do not believe that all men have inalienable rights. Only they have the right to say what is right. They don’t want to govern, they want to dictate. They don’t like most Americans, who don’t agree with their ideas. They probably don’t like you. They are intolerant and dangerous.”
Ironically, Hochstadt is a history professor at ISU. If he knew a thing or two, he’d realize that it’s the Democrats who have historically been, ‘racist, intolerant and dangerous’.
