The Vancouver Sun is declaring, “A reportedly corporate-financed grassroots anti-tax movement, paid for, planned and promoted by right wing think tanks, corporate lobbyists and Fox News Channel, has failed to bring about the the “popular uprising” against the Obama Administration its creators had hoped for.” My. my. my the lies we tell when we are afraid – and that is why people generally lie. They are afraid.
First, let’s use some common sense. If this movement was really backed by all these groups that the Vancouver Sun reports are backing this movement – and mind you, they offer no proof – then wouldn’t the turnout have been much larger? Usually that is what money buys you. Every single event would have had some big name speaker, but for the majority of gatherings, like mine in Orlando, no big names spoke. And yet the people came. There were between 3,000 and 4,000 in Orlando. The Vancouver Sun also declared the event failed. A little early for such a declaration don’t you think? How could this have failed when everybody was pumped? How can this be a failure when we got more than a few people at each event – on a week day? That’s two lies in one sentence. Wait, there is a third one as well. The Vancouver Sun said that this was an uprising against the Obama administration. I guess they didn’t hear us going after both parties.
Then there was this bimbette from CNN, Susan Roesgen, who was interviewing a man at the Chicago Tea Party. She asked him a question and only let him get out half a response before she interrupted and threw in her two cents worth and tried to convince him that the stimulus that Chicago is receiving should make him happy. The man kept asking her to let him finish and she would not. The crowd began to chant, “You’re not a reporter.” Roesgen quickly wrapped up the interview by saying, “I think you get the general tenor of this. It’s anti-government, anti-CNN since this is highly promoted by the right-wing conservative network Fox.” Wow, amazing that a “reporter” would say such a thing. The official response from CNN on Roesgen’s comments via spokesperson Christa Robinson was, “She was doing her job, and called it like she saw it.” I could have sworn her job was reporting the facts.
And then last night I had the pleasure of watching Rachel Maddow’s coverage on MSNBC. She lived up to her ignorant, left wing bias. She reviewed the day with an Air America correspondent which tells you all you need to know. I actually was shocked that Air America is still on air. She claimed that most posters at the events were mildly racist. I myself did not see a single racist poster. They both decried that children were forced to hold propaganda signs. Hilarious coming from lefties who want our children indoctrinated in schools. They both commented on how we were inexperienced in how to run a decent protest. I guess a protest is not a protest unless cars are overturned and buildings are burning. They made fun of Glenn Beck doing his show from the Alamo and said he needed a history lesson. I honestly have no clue what they were talking about. Obviously they need a history lesson. But the best moment of the show came towards the end of the tea party coverage when Maddow was talking to some guy who I didn’t care enough to note his name. She said something to the effect that she didn’t want to be rude, but do these people who refer to what they are doing as “teabagging” really know what “teabagging” is and she smirked. Talk about your middle school adolescent question. I’m glad she did it though because it just shines a light on the mentality we are working against. It’s hard to reason with brainless people.
As far as we are concerned, the tea parties were a roaring success. This was just one huge event that has been in a long line of events that are a part of this movement we are rolling forward. We will win because truth and freedom always win the day. Evil and darkness is already defeated. So do not let the media coverage get to you. We know the truth and God is on our side.
