Tuesday letters: Tea party needs to look in mirror

December 3, 2013 

I totally agree with Larry Knight’s Nov. 17 letter (“Tea party is a terrorist group”).

In his letter, Mr. Knight only scratched the surface of a long list of things the tea party is doing that are not American and exposes their hatred for Americans who are different than they are. One of the things they are doing is accusing the president of not being an American, hating America, or things along that line.

The talk of red state governors obstructing and seeking nullification of certain laws passed by the Obama administration is nothing more than references to modern day secession.

So before the tea party questions the love the president has for this country, they need to take a long look in the mirror at their hypocrisy.
