Anarchists for Big Government

When I saw that an anarchist website was urging its members to “crash” the tea party movement, my first thought was that they might perform a worthy service. The anarchists would be in an excellent position, for example, to expose the statist orientation of many tea partiers on war and immigration. Unfortunately, the main complaint of the “anarchists” is that the tea partiers are too anti-government! In its call to arms, the website warns:

If the tea party movement takes over this country they will really hurt poor people by getting rid of social programs like food stamps, unemployment benefits, disability benefits, student aid, free health care, etc.
