Wingnut of the Day: Tom Tillison

This shows the level of disconnect tea party activists have with reality. Orlando tea partier Tom Tillison believes that Republicans are going to delay Obamacare.

"I still think a true victory would at least include a one-year delay" to the Obamacare provision that requires most Americans buy health insurance by Jan. 1, he said.

There is more.

"The sentiment that I hear from a lot of folks is that if it were not for the media, [they] would not be aware there was a shutdown," said Tillison of Gotha. "They are not feeling the impact of the shutdown on their everyday life."

It is not surprising someone like Tillison, who hates government, would not be bothered by a shutdown. It should be noted that Tillison is a conspiracy theorist. Tillison claimed that Satanists are attempting to help Charlie Crist get elected to a second term as governor. Tillison doesn't have actual evidence but that doesn't stop him from making his assertion.

And Morgan will make out like a bandit if his investment in Crist results in a second stint as Governor.

This is relevant because it’s indicative of the tactics we can expect in the quest to unseat Gov. Scott. With such a Far Left flavor, we can expect a heavy dose of ridicule early and often in an attempt to establish a preferred narrative in the race.

And right on cue, the Miami Herald reports that Satanists “from all over Florida” will gather at the State Capitol on Jan. 25 at 1 p.m. to applaud Scott’s backing of SB 98, according to a news release by a group called the Satanic Temple.

Tillison should look up the meaning to the word "Marxist" before he uses it in a blog post.

A good indication that the American population is slowly conforming to the Marxist-inspired economic principles of Barack Obama and the Far Left. Somewhat ironically, it was John F. Kennedy who said, “Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.”

President Barack Obama's Treasury Secretary Jack Lew worked for Citigroup. Obama's National Economic Council chair Gene Sperling worked at Goldman Sachs. Any President whose top two economic advisers have worked for the financial industry isn't a Marxist. Obama isn't even a progressive.

Tillison has a true disconnect from facts and reality.

Thanks for the post on Tea Party Tillison.

One thought wrt to his seeming ignorance on economic systems. My sense of these guys is that it doesn't matter to whether what they say sounds ignorant or not. They're just singing a tune that will tickle the rage nuts of the folks out in Gotha, or wherever Tea Party Central might reside. Simply stringing together the words "far left," "marxist," and "satanism" is all it takes to fluff their pillows.

What's scary is that at base these guys are anti-civilzation, anti-social contract and just anti-social. In order to share our ever smaller world, we at least need to agree upon the notion that civilization is preferable to the alternative...that a functioning social contract is preferable to not having one, and that (at the very least) we have to accept the fact that other people have the right to exist. In Tea Party rhetoric, I see a rejection of all these things.

This is the best comment I have seen in ages on the blog. Thank you.
