AP: Foes of the tea party movement set to infiltrate rallies

It looks like the memo was received by the media. Last evening the Associated Press reported that there is a concerted effort on the left to infiltrate the TEA Parties and make the attendees out to be racists and homophobes.

Opponents of the fiscally conservative tea party  movement say they plan to infiltrate and dismantle the political group by trying to make its members appear to be racist, homophobic and moronic.

Jason Levin, creator of http://www.crashtheteaparty.org, said Monday the group has 65 leaders in major cities across the country who are trying to recruit members to infiltrate tea party events for April 15-tax filing day, when tea party groups across the country are planning to gather and protest high taxes.

So Billxi, you see they aren’t just trying to be jokers.  This is a coordinated effort across the nation to discredit the TEA Party, and by extension, the conservative movement.

    This is old news. Havent you seen stories about Sarah Palin speaking “for” them?

    Heres a new one … Mike Huckabee is now also speaking “for” them.

    And you want to tell us that they are being infiltrated.

    The tea party was dead in the water as soon as the media started telling us its leaders were mainstream GOP.

    The actual tea party has moved on.  

  • liberal fascism.  Don’t like the opposition so they need to shut them up.

    …..and I say this as one that has infiltrated uber-liberal organizations and counter protested them on many occasions.

    The difference being, we were never there to disrupt, silence, or otherwise remove their voice from the public square.

    We would then take the information gathered in their meetings and create signs to counter protest them, on the outside of their group…..as a distinct group of our own.

    THAT is what protest in America is about…..not this fascism of trying to shut up the opposition by trying to make them out to be Klansmen.

    Suppose I COULD have run around in their crowd with a “Victory to the Iraqi Resistance” sign to paint them as anti-American military goons…….but they did a great job of that on their own.

  • How do you possibly counter tactics like this?  It’s dirty pool and shouldn’t be done by any group.

  • Guam Capsizes

    And of course Obama-census-cold open

  • It this shows that organizing elements within the left are realizing that their early pronouncements that the TEA Party as nothing but a bunch of pissed off nutballs and racists is not resonating with the public.

    The fact there appear to be an organized effort to respond speaks volumes as to how seriously the TEA Party is being taken by some.  If they truly could be dismissed by any means and it was effective then why bother?  Just another version of the Palin phenomenon…dismissed as being a naive incompetent (according to many), but there is always a need to speak out against her.  If she really represented no credible threat no one would waste their energy responding.  They have unintentionally “Dignified with their response”.

  • Just because you registred an hour ago doesn’t mean you get to downrate all the commnets.

  • …folks around here would be taking about how liberals either are trust-fund babies who don’t work or are welfare folks who don’t work and therefore can have a rally in the middle of the week.

    Funny, I didn’t hear that around here lately…I wonder why.
