Recently the National Tea Party Federation, one of the many but lesser know elements in the movement expelled the Tea Party Express and Mark Williams over a satirical parody they considered over the top and racist. Then, in fact purged Mark Williams, taking a page from the old playbook of Joseph Stalin and in doing so plunged a dagger into the very heart and soul of the Tea Party Movement. The tea party was born out of dissent and the freedom to express ones opinion and without that freedom would not exist today. It would seem that David Webb and others in positions of leadership at the National Tea Party Federation have forgotten what the tea party stands for and it is they that should be removed from their positions of leadership, but not purged from the organization as they would have others purged from it. Purging in not the American way, it is not the tea party way and shame on those who would employ the methods of our enemy and thereby play right into his hands. The enemies of the tea party have won a victory today, but it will be short lived as the members of the movement show their displeasure with the likes of David Webb and those around him who would trample the sacred values of the Tea Party Movement.
