"As one of the true founding Tea Party groups, TeaParty365 would like to take this opportunity to once again, and once-and-for-all, distance ourselves - and the larger Tea Party Movement - from the self-serving antics of Rick Scarborough, and his ilk.
TeaParty365 does not support this idiotic notion. We feel it is counter-productive to the national conversation, and ultimately harmful to the Tea Party brand, and the country.
While he may very well also believe in Smaller Government, Fiscal Responsibility, Personal Responsibility, and The Constitution, his personal war against homosexuality has nothings -zero, nada, zilch- to do with the Tea Party. Although Tea Party Unity may claim to be a "leading national Tea Party group," please understand that they do not -repeat: DO NOT represent the Tea Party Movement."
-- From a press release sent out by one of the largest Tea Party groups denouncing Rick Scarborough, the leader of a different Tea Party group, after he mused with anti-gay activist Peter LaBarbera about possibly suing homosexuality itself. The whole thing is Alice in Wonderland tea party silliness.
`Really, now you ask me,' said Alice, very much confused, `I don't think--'
`Then you shouldn't talk,' said the Hatter.
