Via The Hill:
Tea Party activists are similar to pro-democracy protesters in Egypt, Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) said Tuesday.This perfectly illustrates the Ron Pauliens' ignorance when it comes to Islam.
The libertarian congressman, who is a favorite of some Tea Party groups, said that like the protesters in Egypt, the small government movement does not have a defined leader and has many different factions.
Asked by CNN if he would prod the Tea Party movement to "do more" to push for spending cuts, Paul said that would do no good.
"Nobody controls the Tea Party people. They're restless," he said. "It's sort of like looking at those people who finally rebelled in Egypt and saying, OK, what is the consensus on what you want?"
Maybe I'm wrong but I don't remember any Tea Party birthing an angry mob of thugs who sexually assaulted a reporter.
This is why Ron Paul is nuts.
