Tim Proffitt's MySpace, etc.-Tea Party Brownshirt (Typical)

Head-stomper, woman-beater Tim Proffitt of Paris, Kentucky: All about a typical Tea Party Brownshirt. Get inside the life of the head-stomper and inside his own head. It's all about prejudices discredited in the US decades ago, and its revival in the recent Southernization of the USA.
Scenes such as Tim Proffitt stomping the head of a Move On activist while one or two other "men" held her on the pavement at a Rand Paul for US Senate event remind me of scenes from the long ago past.

Remember the old video scenes in which men of similar background (see Proffitt's MySpace page at ) did the same in Birmingham, Selma, and similar acts in similar places? Only thing changed is the color of the victim, and it's as repugnant as ever.

And what does the record show about woman-beater Tim Proffitt? A total phony: Living off the system he and his idol, would-be Senator Foghorn Rand rant and whine about. From his Federal Election Commission records, he seems to be directly supported by his wife, and indirectly supported by the taxpayers (!) of Bourbon County Kentucky (she is a school-cafeteria worker).

Of course it is also possible that he is supported by the taxpayers through disability. That would be beyond ironic, it would be fantastic hypocricy. At any rate the pay must not be bad: The record shows that the unemployed Mr. Proffitt and his wife have donated $2500 to Rand Paul in recent years. (Also shows other interesting information about Mr. Proffitt, see at ).

THE TEA PARTY MOVEMENT IS ABOUT THREE THINGS: SELF-DELUSION, DELUDING OTHERS, AND BEING DELUDED BY OTHERS. These people are deluded in thinking they are doing the work of a higher power and that they can finally make a difference in the world. They are self-pitying, self-righteous, and paranoid, deluded into thinking the system has held them back from their natural station and wealth in life, which of course should be much better than the lot of their fellows and neighbors.

Whom are they being deluded by? Billionaire oil tycoons like the Koch brothers of Kansas, the Daddy Warbuckses of the Tea Barty Bowel Movement, media barons like Pruneface Murdoch, the Aussie who would rule the USA through Big Lie propaganda that would make Hitler and Goebbels blush.


52 years old.

6 ft, 1 in.

Bald, heavy, and bespeckled (photo). Hasn't fared as well as his idol, obviously.

Has a daughter about same age as the young lady he bullied, beat, and violated.

No visible means of support.

A generous Rand Paul donor nonetheless.

The more you look, you have to admit: a total phony and a typical Tea Party Superpatriot.
