Liberals and progressives will always let you know which organizations or individuals they fear most by whom they attack ("Chuck Schumer pushes plan to wipe out tea party," Web, Jan. 23).
According to the article, Sen. Schumer "said the tea party movement is being controlled by a few wealthy donors ... ." The New York Democrat wants to obscure the fact that a few million Tea Party members and supporters sincerely believe in and actively work for the principles of the Tea Party — and donate funds every month.
Tea Party people are not "controlled by a few wealthy donors," they're controlled by principles. Progressives are controlled by a desire to control the citizenry. Any group or individual who fights the leftist desire to control everything is considered an enemy.
