Tax day cat-fights in the U.S.?

Fans of freedom in the U.S. are gearing up for Tax Day Tea Parties and protests. But Fox News reports that tea parties might not be as cordial and friendly as planned:

On Fox News Channel’s April 7 “Your World,” host Neil Cavuto reported that the Tax Day tea party protests on April 15 will be “infiltrated” by their political opponents and led by left-wing activist organizations. He specifically named Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN).

“Only eight days before a nationwide tea party, some over-caffeinated crashers aiming to lay waste to it,” Cavuto said. “Reports of very well-organized infiltrators trying to mix in and rain on this parade. Talk about taxing.”

Since Fox News is usually a little too lewd and crude for my taste, I typically get my Fox-fill via hearsay like the above. Given the usually-sensationalist nature of Fox News reporting, ACORN could be planning to do nothing more unfortunate than toss organic chicken eggs at Tax Day protesters. Or perhaps we have another civil war in the making. Either way, rest assured that no matter what happens, Neil Cavuto's jokes about it will fall flat. As usual.

Don't put anything past ACORN, they are a corrupt organization that was involved in voter fraud. ACORN(together with certain Democrat officials) is also attempting to remove Sheriff Joe Arpaio(Republican sheriff of Maricopa County where Phoenix is located). Arpaio has been repeatedly reelected by large margins and has been nicknamed "America's toughest sheriff". Arpaio is now being charged with racism for his rounding up of illegal aliens. His policy is consistent with federal guidelines. However, ACORN, some Democrats, and certain "civil rights groups" are claiming that his policy is racist. The truth is that the left has been out to get Arpaio for years. They were against his reintroducing chain gangs. They were outraged when he had prisoners who were sex offenders wear pink prison uniforms. They spoke out against his cutting the prison food budget and serving baloney sandwiches twice a day. Finally, they were enraged when(in response to overcrowding) Arpaio established a prisoner tent city right next to the county prison. The good news is that Arpaio has said that he is ready for the fight.

Fox News 'lewd and crude'? Are you kidding? They are conservative. Perhaps you've become accustomed to syrupy CNN infotainment fawning over the latest celebrities, like Obama.
