Today’s Tea Party Is The Opposite Of The Tea Party

• At a Tea Party convention, Sarah Palin criticized Obama’s diplomatic efforts by saying we should exert our power and punish adversaries.

• She preaches the kind of imperial arrogance practiced by the British that the original Tea Party fought against.

• British hawks in colonial times responded exactly as Palin wants America to act: forgoing diplomacy in favor of power and dominance, convincing ourselves it’s justified because we’re a power for good.

• America didn’t become a nation until Britain started acting the way Palin and the Tea Party want.

Sarah Palin's ignorant imperialism.
