Supporting the US Constitution IS NOT activism. Attempting to ignore it against the will of the American people would be though. Someone has to stand up to the left fringe, thus the Tea Party was born.

RealClearPolitics - Video - Pro-Gay Hecklers Repeatedly Interrupt Obama At DNC Fundraiser
I was there in person, and not only is your characterization of how it affected President Obama completely off base, but you have no clue who the people chanting were, and why they were chanting.

The President was always in control and POLITE enough to actually address the wacko who kept RUDELY interrupting him. And the people chanting were his supporters, who were doing so to drown out the moron heckler with his classic campaign mantra, "Yes We Can!".

We did the same thing outside when the despicable LaRouche pigs showed up with their giant banner of our President wearing a Hitler moustache, singing about impeaching President Obama, and we oversang them with the Star Spangled Banner so they could no longer be heard.

Nope, you're blatantly wrong. Activism, according to Merriam-Webster:

Quote:
a doctrine or practice that emphasizes direct vigorous action especially in support of or opposition to one side of a controversial issue
The Tea Partiers are activists, and you're going to look silly if you keep arguing the point.

You have no idea what you are posting. Boxer is a senator from California not Mississippi & other Republican strongholds. The 3 Republicans in the primary would be considered Democrats in most states. Boxer is a liberal running against whatever moderate Republican wins the primary.

What sort of bothered me was the demonstrations outside where Obama was speaking. There were anti-war & pro-immigrate rights groups protesting the president for not ending the war & reforming immigration. These were leftist groups criticizing a Democratic president. I think it was poor behavior. But has anyone heard Republican groups heckling a Republican president?

Well, I'll admit that you're gramatically right about this...According to that stated definition, we are ALL activists, whether in support of this administration's twisted policies or not.

Teabaggers ARE liberals. They are Democrats in the Barney Frank sector of your party.

The "color of his skin is not the issue. It's the "thinness" of it that's given him problems.
