As the deadline looms to file your taxes before the tax man cometh, so, too, does the reality that hardcore fare leftists will attempt to infiltrate the Tea Party’s nationwide Tax Day protests – in order to try and paint all of them as racist, homophobic thugs (surprise). The Associated Press reports:
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) – 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.
“Every time we have someone on camera saying that Barack Obama isn’t an American citizen, we want someone sitting next to him saying, ‘That’s right, he’s an alien from outer space!'” Levin said.
Tea party members said the backlash comes from ignorance.
“They can’t actually debate our message and that’s their problem,” said Bob MacGuffie, a Connecticut organizer for Right Principles, a tea party group that also has members in New York and New Jersey.
The tea party movement generally unites on the fiscally conservative principles of small government, lower taxes and less spending. Beyond that the ideology of the people involved tends to vary dramatically.
Levin says they want to exaggerate the group’s least appealing qualities, further distance the tea party from mainstream America and damage the public’s opinion of them.
“Do I think every member of the tea party is a homophobe, racist or a moron? No, absolutely not,” Levin said. “Do I think most of them are homophobes, racists or morons? Absolutely.”
The site manifesto says they want to dismantle the Tea Party by nonviolent means. “We have already sat quietly in their meetings, and observed their rallies,” the site said.
My, oh, my. Wouldn’t one of Obama’s biggest influences, Saul Alkinsky, be so proud of these idiots?
Michelle Malkin’s written a more complete picture of the organized Tea Party Crasher movement, and various other Smearacle movements designed to smear any opposition to Obama as birther fanatics, mobsters, “un-American,” Astroturfers, fascists, terrorists, brownshirts, racists, assassins, and Neanderthals.
As I have said so many times before, specifically on the issue of of fake “hate crimes,” if opponents of liberal policies really were as evil and awful as the left makes them out to be, then they wouldn’t have to resort to making up things about them. That they do speaks volumes about these types of tactics, and not in a good way.
And while we’re on the topic, there’s a distinct difference in “infiltrating” a political gathering/movement and observing versus infiltrating it and pretending to be a part of it all the while plotting to make up and stage things about the movement that are untrue. That the far left has resorted to these types of tactics – “in your face” style tactics that candidate Obama himself argued in favor of both during the campaign and as President – is a strong indicator of the desperation of the far left as they try to push and shove and “deem” as acceptable socialist/fascist policies on the American pepole.
Except neither Obama nor his dutiful minions at left wing blogs and indy media sites (and their helpers in the mainstream media, for that matter)seem to have taken into account the inconvenient fact that the Tea Party movement is not just made up of conservatives but of a cross-section of people from all walks of life who are fed up with government intrusion into their lives via their income, taxes, their healthcare, their jobs, what they eat, etc. The more these Alinsky types try and pigeonhole and demonize this movement, the more likely that the electoral bloodbath predictions for this fall will become a reality. And you know what? I hope like hell that it does, because reality for these folks is a b*tch, and I can’t think of a more deserving bunch.
