Despite these attempts to make the “movement” appear organic, the principle organizers of the local events are actually the lobbyist-run think tanks Americans for Prosperity and Freedom Works. The two groups are heavily staffed and well funded, and are providing all the logistical and public relations work…
You ever hear about a little old “grassroots” organization called ACORN?
The Tea parties are a peaceful demonstration of out rage against Obama’s socialist spending agenda.
Socialism appears in many forms: Fire departments
, police, public roads, public schools, the military, etc. Anything where government collectively gathers money to pay for “common benefit” is socialism.
In fact, recent government bailouts of private corporations is socialism, except that it’s socialism for the wealthy at the expense of the poor instead of the other way around which is why we the rightwing are always railing against.
Most countries that are socialist in the purest sense rarely dictate to businesses but do work for the public good. It’s also worth noting that nearly all of those countries are small, democratic, have little corruption, and most are Scandinavian, though there are others
Why don’t you post the link to the Kos and media matters while you are there. They are organized locally, not funded by Soros like the Democrats. You have no answers and Obama would have never been elected if he said during his campaign “During my first 2 months in office I will ensure that America is more in debt than at any time in the history of the world.” He is a liar, the Democrats have to move fast because they are going to lose Congress next year. They have done WAY too much to keep blaming their failures on Bush. And no one cares what the left wing websites say to the choir to keep them feeling good about themselves.
Ok, well who do you think organizes these liberal groups that you are probably familiar with? Who gave ACORN a huge amount of stimulus money? Corporate lobbyists? Democrats? Hmmm. What do you think Chris Dodd, Barney Fwank, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Tim Geithner, and all the other looney clowns are? Corporate lobbyists much? Oh wait….you want me to only focus on Republicans.
Do you really think all those anti war and anti Bush every thing protests were not funded and supported by left wing elements of the country? Your a fool if you do.
Who do you think has a hand in any thing organized that the left does? Billionaires like George Soros that is who.
I will be going to one just to protest this.
If you don’t have a problem with this then you are incapable of having a thought outside of your own desires for the moment, because this: http://www.pagetutor.com/trillion/index….
will enslave Americans for generations.
This whole tea party thing seems to stink to high heaven. Fox News, and its billionaire owner Murdoch, promotes it. Republicans with ties to large corporations are calling it “grass roots”.
There is nothing grass roots about this. It is corporations, the rich and right wing extremists who are leading this farce.
only when it suits a republican is it the rightous thing to do, rightous seems to be the republican bill-fold
I’m neither Dem nor Rep. uck, but didn’t it bother you some when everyone Obama wanted in his cabinet were law breakers….just curious.
Do you mean as opposed to MoveOn.org?
Why would it bother them? Corporate lobbyists add to the authenticity.
