The St. Louis Tea Party is up to their usual tricks, blatantly lying as an excuse to get on Fox News. The Tea Party claimed on their blogs that Illinois Congressman Phil Hare said that, "he didn't care about the constitution." What Congressman Hare actually said was, "I don't worry about the constitution on this, to be honest," which is pretty obviously a completely different statement. Saying, "I don't worry about it on this bill," is the equivalent of saying, "I'm confident that the bill is constitutional." It's not saying that you don't care at all about the constitution, and anyone who suggests that it is is obviously being willfully ignorant.
Well, we've got plenty of willfully ignorant people in the St. Louis tea party.
Adam Sharp blatantly lied:
Gateway Pundit blatantly lied:
Dana Loesch, blatently lied:
By the way, remember when tea partiers freaked out about pointing out that someone used a racial slur if that someone is the father of a marine? Or when they said that it's not OK to criticize tea party members for flying the American flag upside down as long as it was done by a veteran? Well, Congressman Hare served six years in the Army Reserves, and that doesn't stop them from blatently lying about him.
