Is Nevada Tea Party Candidate A Plant?

Florida was the first state to have a Tea Party political party registered.  It has been a controversial move and decried by the tea party groups in Florida.  Conservatives know that a third party would take away votes in the November elections and let the Marxists continue their onslaught.  Now Nevada has a registered Tea Party political party as well.  The candidate who co-registered the group and is running on the ticket in Nevada is very similar to the Floridian Tea Party candidate.

Scott Ashjian is the Nevada candidate.  He is a lawyer and owes $200,000 in back taxes.  Frederic O’Neal is the Florida candidate and he is a lawyer who owes $155,000 in back taxes.  Coincidence?  O’Neal is also a former Democrat.  There may be nothing nefarious here, but I would not put it past the Progressives to start these political parties and fund the candidates in an effort to take votes away from the Republicans.  After a Rasmussen Poll revealed that a Tea Party candidate would beat out both Republicans and Democrats, who would doubt the conniving minds of Progressives?

The Patriot Caucus has run a poll asking if people would like Scott Ashjian to step aside and over 90% say, “Yes.”  No tea party organizer will vouch for Ashjian either.  The same is true in Florida for the candidate here.  Twenty Nevada Tea Party groups have released a public statement as follows:

For Immediate Release: March 10, 2010
From Nevada grassroots and tea party leaders
Subject: Unified Statement / Grassroots Nevada is United

We, the grassroots/tea party leaders of Nevada, speaking for the conservative activists in our communities, are united in issuing the following statement.

• We are united in denouncing the TPN (Tea Party of Nevada).
-o The TPN is not a conservative party who speaks for grassroots and tea party activists in Nevada.
-o The TPN is not now, has never been, and will never be affiliated with grassroots efforts in Nevada.
-o The term “Tea Party Candidate” will no longer be used to indicate grassroots support for a candidate or candidates.
-o The TPN will not be invited to or allowed to represent themselves at conservative grassroots events and functions across Nevada.
• We are united in our desire for fiscal responsibility, transparency, and accountability from legislators and in legislation from Carson City, NV and Washington, D.C.
• We are united in opposition of progressive leanings towards unfunded mandates as a solution to appeasing special interest and delivering ‘social justice’.
• We are united in the belief that our government should be inspiring pride and accountability, and personal strength and opportunity, not a path for us to follow to have our needs met as the government sees fit.

We, the tea party activists and grassroots organizers in Nevada, are united.

Obama Appoints Gay Activist Pope Basher To Faith Based Council

Nothing this President does surprises me when it comes to religion, especially when considering that he sat for twenty years in a Marxist and racist church.  Also, when one considers how eager he was to point out to the world that America is not a Christian nation, the thought that he would place a “Pope bashing” activist on his Faith Based Council is not shocking.  As a gay Christian, I am appalled that this man has been chosen for this position.  Yet again, I am being represented by a libtard gay activist extremist.  That is why I am so vocal about being gay.  It is not because I want to shove it down people’s throats, I want them to realize that there are many gay people out here like myself that are conservative and Christian and just want to live their lives with the freedom that this great country affords us – at least presently.  I am not a Catholic and so I do not feel the same way that Catholics feel about the Pope but I still treat him with reverence and respect.

House Republican Conference Chairman Mike Pence has called on the President to withdraw the appointment of this gay activist to the White House advisory council on faith-based programs because the activist has called the Pope a “discredited leader” in the past and has attacked other Christian leaders.  Rep. Pence said, “Appointing a man who has publicly attacked the pope and other religious leaders for their support of traditional marriage is deeply offensive to millions of Americans and the faith-based community he is appointed to serve. I call on the president to withdraw this appointment and select a person who can serve the faith-based community with the respect and dignity it deserves.”

The activist’s name is Harry Knox and he had told a Bay Area Reporter, a San Francisco-based gay newspaper: “The Knights of Columbus do a great deal of good in the name of Jesus Christ, but in this particular case, they were foot soldiers of a discredited army of oppression.”  He was referring to Prop 8 which I did not support.

I am no fan of Rick Warren, but Harry Knox’s criticism of him went too far as well.  Knox said on the PBS News Hour in December that Warren “has in fact leveraged homophobia to get ahead in his career. … This is the worst possible choice the president could have made. This is a divisive choice. … We said to the president-elect today in very strong language, the strongest we can think of and be respectful of the office, you have really slapped us. And we want you to think about that and think very hard what your actions will be going forward because this very symbolic, early decision has sent the exact wrong message.”

Actually, Mr. Knox, you are the worst possible choice the President could make.
