EPIC FAIL: Think Progress attempts to paint Tea Party as “racist”

Posted by: ST on July 15, 2010 at 5:56 pm

FAILThey tried – but failed, thanks to intrepid bloggers like Conservative Generation, Bob Owens, and Blue Collar Todd.

No matter how hard the left tries (with the MSM’s help, of course), at best they will find a few lone nutcakes out there expressing hatred for “the black man” but by and large this movement is not even remotely about racism but instead about restoring fiscal sanity back to our government, and putting the people back in charge, not the other way around. And contra to popular belief, this movement actually started before President Obama was elected President. It just wasn’t officially called the “Tea Party” until shortly after.

This Think Progress tactic shouldn’t surprise anyone, of course. Why? Well, for starters, the Washington Post last week published a story titled “Democrats digging harder than ever for dirt on Republicans” which talked about how “The Democratic Party is moving faster and more aggressively than in previous election years to dig up unflattering details about Republican challengers. ” We knew this was coming because all of the polling is showing that November is likely going to be bad news for the left. At best they’ll just manage to maintain control of the House, while losing a few Senate seats. At worst, they’ll lose control of the House and come close to it in the Senate. So naturally, now more than ever Democrat operatives are digging for everything they can … because they don’t have a brag-worthy record to run on.

Standing shoulder to shoulder with official Dem operatives working behind the scenes to smear conservatives are their allies at the NAACP, who as we all know played the race card against the Tea Party this week at their annual convention. Conveniently, they aren’t going to release the exact wording of their “Tea Party resolution” … until a month before the election. Alongside the NAACP and other prominent left-leaning groups are your pundits and liberal bloggers who have, for the last three years have been attempting to paint any and all opposition to Barack Obama as steeped in “racism.”

These, friends, are obvious last-ditch, desperate attempts at “winning” over voters before November not by running on their own records, but by personally and politically attempting to smear the records of their opponents. Hey, they’re just following their “leader.” How far we’ve come from the glory days of Democrats regaining control of Congress and Barack Obama and the Axelturf/Rahmbo/Fibbs axis strolling confidently into the WH to excited screams and streams of tears coming from those who really did believe we were going to get the “smartest team EVAH assembled in Washington, DC” who would “fundamentally transform” America.

With big GOP gains in November (109 days from election day!), The Socialism Express, much like Think Progress did today, will suffer an epic fail by being epically derailed.

Oh, and back to the NAACP and racism, when is it they are going to start condemning some of their own members and supporters again? ….

    ‘Think’ Progress. Don’t actually MAKE Progress, just ‘Think’ about it.

    They have to do it this way, ST. Their “record” stinks like a full outhouse pit (which, just coincidentally, it is) and there’s no way they can convince folks that all the loss of freedom and higher taxes “was for your own good.”

    I’ll probably never vote for a jackass again, but I know for certain I’ll never vote for a person who treats voters like children, which is how the vast majority of our elected representatives and senators, Democrat and Republican, view we, the people.

  3. Pasadena Phil says:

    Does anyone know what the official membership total is for the NAACP at this time? It would be interesting to go back in six months and see how it compares. I expect membership will crater. There is a big difference between the NAACP and the Black Panthers. Not many people identify with the Black Panthers and won’t like the NAACP now adopting the BP agenda and tactics.

  4. They can’t argue on the merits so they will scour the earth to find evidence to impugn the motives of those proving them wrong. And if they can’t find any evidence they simply make it up. This childish practice will stop when people finally wise up.

  5. Kate says:

    Once again, this is a desperate effort made by a dismally failing political wing of the Democratic party. No true independence for these folks…they haven’t done anything that I can think of that improves the lives of anyone, even “colored people”.

    I, too, would be interested to know their membership numbers and who’s been bankrolling this dinosaur!

    Let’s just hope some of the Kool Aid drinkers, regardless of color or race (there seems to be a difference amongst some factions) wake up and smell the coffee to counter all of those who will be casting their vote based on race and those who are dead but will still be casting their vote based on race.

  7. Zippy says:

    Their behavior is tantamount to a childish tantrum, attempting to get something in a way that worked previously but no longer does. This tactic has gotten so old, it’s become cliche and people are getting tired of it.

    As for Obama, I’m not racist, his ‘white part’ is equally repulsive. It was his dear hate filled mother who filled little Barry with thoughts of racism dancing in his big fat head.

  8. KingShamus says:

    Always remember that there are five “a’s” in ‘RAAAAACISM’.

    Think Progress can play race cards till the chickens come home to roost in November. All they’re doing is turning off normal people who realize that advocating tax cuts doesn’t make a person into a Klansman.

  9. Thank you very much for the link. Keep on fighting.
