The sane Sarah? https://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/jan/10/sarah-palin-arizona-shooting-fallout https://www.smh.com.au/opinion/soci...and-of-alienated-patriots-20110111-19mmi.html One is their militancy. At some of their rallies, Tea Party members pump fists and yell ''USA, USA''. When the struggle is viewed as being between patriots and non-patriots, it is a short step to picturing opponents as enemies. The fervour of their patriotism should not disguise their alienation from their own society, its big cities, its pluralism, its dynamism. The people these patriots are being urged to take their country back from are other Americans. Tom Tancredo, a former congressman, told a cheering Tea Party rally that voters who could ''not even spell the word vote or say it in English'' put a ''socialist ideologue'' Barack Hussein Obama (it seems mandatory in the Tea Party to stress the President's middle name) into the White House.
