Democratic Congressman calls Tea Party members of Congress ‘domestic enemies’

During an appearance on MSNBC on Saturday, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) spoke plainly and called Tea Partymembers of Congress as “domestic enemies”.

In his appearance on MSNBC’s Saturday morning show, Cohen told MSBNC's host Steve Kornacki, “I obviously do not have an opportunity to go within the conference, the Republican, we call it a caucus, they call it a conference. But I know some of the members there, and a lot of those members, they're rabid, they're sophomoric, literally, they're second term in Congress, never worked in politics before, and they think they are somehow like--it's all talked in military terms.”

“Nancy Pelosi's Democratic caucus and give or take 80 reasonable Republicans and pass some bills to avoid another CR problem and shutdown and avoid the debt crisis, protect the country from these people, who really, you got to think, we take an oath to support the country against all enemies foreign and domestic, and these are the domestic enemies.”

He's certainly a good little goose stepping communist, isn't he?

 "we take an oath to support the country against all enemies foreign and domestic, and these are the domestic enemies.”

This sounds like he is talking about himself and his fellow democrats. They are the enemies destroying this country.

Tea partiers....... normal citizens who want sanity brought back and the constitution followed,  stand behind those words above. Too bad most elected officials do not stand behind the oath they all took. Especially Obama.

I feel sooooo sorry for these poor Dems.   Having to deal with Rabid dogs  Repub.   Perhaps if these Dems in the House Majority had stood up, read Obumocare, allowed Repub to debate ,   come to an agreement or not, maybe we would not be in this mess now.   If Reid ever passed a budget then CR 's would not be necessary.   But that would actually be doing what they were sent to DC for.   They were too busy stuffing their pockets with tax payers hard earned $$$.

If demanding that you follow the constitution, and act in the best interests of the country, rather then your party's radical agenda, makes you a domestic terrorist, so be it.......By the way if as Obama says, for the past five years his administration has brought the budget into balance, and deficits lower, why did he want and get the national budget and deficit increased!?

Democrat is a synonym for Communist or socialist.

Well, many of the family trees don't fork in Tennessee. He obviously hails from one. If you're looking for "domestic enemies" of this country go look in a mirror and then try to get an education outside the public school system. You might find the principles on which this country was established.

Every time one of these fools open their yaps, it makes me think of a Hermione Granger comment in Harry potter. "What an idiot!"

I am elated and PROUD that this intellectually and morally impotent leftist twat would consider me (a Tea Party Member) as a domestic enemy - for the enemy of all so-called, "progressive" thoughts and objectives I most certainly am and ever will be.  Anyone who loves our Constitution and our Bill of Rights is the "domestic" enemy of any and all such mindless, lock-step leftist-democrat morons.

Another reason these useless pieces of pig excrement think of us as enemies is because they know that we are willing, able and ready to fight to the death (theirs) before we will allow them to take away our rights and liberty.


  I agree with you 100%.  You may send Representative Cohen your feelings, using the address listed below:

Representative Cohen,

   Please study the comment below and seriously consider where you fit into the picture:

"The Tea Party, Conservatives and all Patriots support the government of the United States......the foundation of which is the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.  These founding documents are our governmental structure and the source of governmental power and limitation of governmental power.  These documents are not up for grabs in any election!  Those who oppose these foundational documents and try to subvert and destroy them, those who continuously ignore these documents which are the Supreme Law of the land, ARE GUILTY OF SEDITION.  It is the MARXIST/SOCIALIST/STATIST/COMMUNISTS in Washington who are committing SEDITION AGAINST THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.  THEY MUST BE DEALT WITH ACCORDINGLY.  Never forget, these people will accuse their opponents of doing WHAT THEY ARE DOING WHILE THEY ARE DOING IT.  This tactic is pure Saul Alinsky and right out of his book, RULES FOR RADICALS.  It follows that these traitors are commiitting sedition, while blaming American Patriots like Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Rand Paul for what they are actually trying to do......overthrow our American system of government.  You sir, and your fellow MARXIST/SOCIALIST/STATISTS are the true enemies of America!"

Tell this "public servant" what you think of his MARXIST COMMENTS!

He's been in office since 2007, so it's time for him to go to the wayside.  Why is it so hard for the left to speak nice? usual...we have a whole lot of words and we do NO action!  Conservatives SHOULD be massing in DC and staying until this REPUBLIC is back in OUR hands! Until then...keep sounding off...because it is doing NOTHING!

Everyone should be insulted by cohen's comments.  Since when does opposition to the democratic dream of socialism make us domestic terrorist.  It is time we start letting these elitist know that we aren't going to take it anymore no matter what side of the aisle they are on. 

Fine, Tea Party members are "domestic enemies".  In that case the democrats and RINO's are evil and wicked lying terrorists---and that is much more truthful than Cohen's brainless, eyes closed, mush-mouth mentality.

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …


DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
