Tea Party Patriots Speaker: When Obama Talks About 'Doing God's Work,' He Means 'God Must Be Dethroned'

As Brian noted earlier today, the Tea Party is no longer even pretending that it is focused exclusively on economic issues and not the culture wars. A case in point: At today’s Tea Party Patriots fifth anniversary convention today, Breitbart News author Sonnie Johnson was met with a standing ovation for a speech at which she insisted that President Obama is a Marxist who may or may not believe in God, but definitely thinks “God must be dethroned.”

“Karl Marx had two main goals: to destroy capitalism and to dethrone God,” Johnson said. “So when you hear the leader of progressivism, aka American Marxism, say that you are doing 'God’s work,’ understand he means it. He  means you’re taking over God’s work. God must be dethroned.”

“If God is in all of these things,” she said, referring to government services, “why are the Ten Commandments not allowed in the social services building? If God is in all of these things, why is there even a question if Little Sisters of the Poor have to pay for abortion? If God is in all of these things, do we have to ask him where he stands on marriage? “

“I have to ask sometimes, ‘What God are you serving?’” she said of the president. “But that’s not my place, and kind of, truthfully, I don’t really want to know.”

Another American History Lesson From The Tea Party

The Tea Party Patriots are having a convention today to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the movement, and one prevalent theme in the morning session was denying the fact that the Tea Party represents any racist ideas. Rep. Raul Labrador of Idaho said of his own election, “You know these Tea Party patriots are so racist, they decided they wanted a Puerto Rican Mormon.”

Another speaker, Jeffrey Lord, a former Reagan administration official who is now an editor at the American Spectator, told the audience that accusations of racism in the Tea Party are hypocritical because it was Democrats who supported slavery and segregation.

Like “historian” David Barton, Lord conveniently skips over some pretty major political developments of the last century.
