Forget the Politically Correct montage of constant drone and lore, I say that I despise President Obama, and I despise the complete leadership of both the Upper and Lower Houses. There, is that a clear enough display of my personal and so-called politically incorrect partisan views? I am sick and tired of curtailing to the Media, Bloggers, and Activists, and I say that it is about time everyone has their individual voices heard, and thoughts made known.

Now, the question is, are we soon to be declared "Extremists" by the new Administration, and their cohorts at CNN, MSNBC, and the Huffington Post? My answer to that is simple and frank: I DO NOT CARE.

There it is folks, I dare say that I care little for the defensive arguments and points presented, simply let EVERY American, regardless of their Mainstream or so-called Fringe Opinions, be heard loud and clear. The Leftists have dominated the Media, Blogs, and Streets for EIGHT straight years, it is about time that everyone else be afforded the same Opportunities, Platforms, and Respect. Any self appreciating "Progressive" will acknowledge such, and therefore it should always remain a non Hypocritical factor of likewise displays as presented within the Video here.

funny that i didn't see any signs that says bush was hitler or the wealthy were the criminals....only that obama WHO HAS PRESIDENT FOR THREE MONTHS is the villian.....question...why wasn't this teabagging arranged last sept or oct or nov or dec or jan, when bush was still in office?

When bush was in office..there were all kinds of slams on him like that, and i'm sure there still are...and i'm not defending Bush either..believe me.
This lady was going for the extreme parts of the group to try to show her version of what she thought the whole thing was.

I wished their had been protests when the bailout first started...but there weren't. I was completely against them...watched as both Presidential candidates supported and voted for it...watched as congress passed it and Bush sign it.

People should have been protesting then...maybe they thought and were hoping this would fix the mess....people on ATS knew it wouldn't.

Most people don't pay attention to politics..I never used to...they will only start to pay attention when things get bad around them..which is what is happening now.

It's not an Obama's a government thing...and to me it's a Federal Reserve thing.

A historical election wrapped around bank bailouts...plunging 401k's and huge job losses...people losing their homes...and an explosion of spending....

It's going to wake people up.

We should be glad people are starting to wake up...cripes...better late than never.

Unfortunately it takes everything going to hell for it to happen.

People you need to watch this video because this is a PRIME example of the media and their crap games they play. She asks why she chooses to interview the extreme and put them on TV instead of the normal citizen. Well youll see the rest it is a great video and yes it will tick you off.....

Having just seen this video and knowing nothing more about it then that, I was actually surprised that the CNN reporter even talked to those people after her segment aired. Couldn't she have just told them to blow and walked away? I thought she handled it politely, even when the woman got very antagonistic towards her.

However, I do know the media and it wouldn't surprise me at all that they are gonna talk to weirdos first before they talk to the average Joe so they can get better ratings. I'm surprised she didn't find someone in a spacesuit or something to talk to actually. A man and his baby seems normal enough... don't you think? Then again I did not see the rest of the segment that wasn't in this post.

I'm going to tell you what this comes down to. If your politicians aren't voting the way you want them to then you vote them out and you KEEP ON voting them out until they do vote the way you want. But YOU HAVE TO VOTE... I'm so tired of people being mad and not even trying to do anything about it. My feeling is if you don't vote, then you don't get a say in what happens. Because your opinion at this point is both meaningless and pointless.

So next election be sure to get all the big talkers out there in to vote rather then into a bar to rant and rave about how bad things are. As a people, an American people, we can beat them... but we have to do it by their rules... and they know we are sheep so they keep on doing it to us. Let's show them that we aren't sheep and we aren't going to take it anymore!!!

The trailing part of the video was the REAL journalism.

I only need to watch it once, though.

I'd written an email to Lou Dobbs last year when the campaign was in full swing and complained to the only person with any self-respect left at CNN.

Every time we tune to CNN it's only so that we can note who the advertisers are so that we can avoid them.

FOX doesn't need me to defend them but I will say this much... If it weren't for some of those working there, we would have every news organization show the world how not to report news.

Main stream can't help themselves. They weren't trained with the capacity to do their jobs. They have become entertainers.

Great video of some real news.

I watched 80% of it and had to close the video.

Is that reporter THAT stupid? Its people like her which make me sick.

I've always said along the same line. Forget tax. Forget Fed. Kill the devil. Abolish money. Rob the rotten elite.

They all focus on the extremist elements in any protest it's what sells the story and makes ratings and keeps the money rolling in for the network.As I said yesterday all CNN,Fox and the rest are doing is trying to maintain the left/right illusion much like the other opportunists looking to co-opt this movement for their own gain.

I fear the media. They do not connect with most people. They represent their own special interests and constantly SLANT the news.

A vast majority of people who attended these "Tea Parties" aren't the "Radicals" they are portrayed to be. They are normal, working, average heart-of-American-values, educated American citizens. The problem with our media is that a majority of these networks are ultimately owned by FOREIGNERS. Do you think they care if Americans are portrayed favorably?

What is really sad is the Obama Administration's "Homeland Security Report" that just came out portraying all these people as "Radicals." No Obama, these Conservative people who attended these rallies are not "Radicals" just because they can see the shafting you are doing to my country. It should bother even the people that voted for you the "bad-mouthing" about Americans to foreign elements you have done and continue doing. Now, Mr. Obama, you are labeling a large segment of Americans as "potential terrorists" and training our own troops to be prepared to point guns at us. The mainstream media drools like starry-eyed teenage girls at your feet. Every damned day the lead story is something about the "great things" you are doing for the people! Your glorious act of releasing "classified documents" about torture under the Bush Administration just let our enemies know that if you are captured by American troops, we are only going to waterboard you! Hell, I guess that is worst than getting your head sawed off slowly in the name of Allah! I suppose we "Radical Right Wingers" just take it too far.

A media that cared about the average American citizen would have the decency to keep the report under wraps DESPITE the release by the Obama Administration. Instead, they choose to gloat at the fact that they "got something" on an American President they didn't support. Obama, whom they DO support, in the meantime "Also got a puppy".

Who is in whose pocket?

Great Find! The MSM and our elected officials aren't really realizing how PO'ed people are with the way things are going. I'm sure everybody in America is so glad that we each get $400 more of our own money, like they are doing us some great favor by not taking our money in the first place.

The average tax in the US is 28% if i am correct, in some European countries people that earn above a certain threshold pay 60% tax, thats 100% more tax than you are paying and we don't have riots here (yet). Hmm, we'll see when the bailout # in eastern Europe hits the fan and the rest of EU is shattered.

But wouldn't, provided enough people got into action, that in fact be the purest form of democracy, not anarchy? Wouldn't more than 50% of citizens protesting or, retaking the country that was stolen from them, by definition be, the rule of majority? It wouldn't be absence of law or non-abidance there-of, but rather a much needed shift of the upholder of the said law.

OK silly question time:

If, as that angry woman stated, this is not about any political party but about government spending our money (yours actually I'm British) and these spending plans were signed for by both Bush and then Obama, why did she not protest at Bush? Where was the tea party during the Bush years?

NAH sorry I smell the brown stuff here and a group of anti-Obamists.

Let's play spot the non white face in that video shall we.....hmmm answer : ZERO

Well well well. I think the truth is that this was an anti-Obama protest with a racist slant and like all protests like that the participants get very angry but know they can't say: I hate that Black B.... Obama!

What will be sad is , again it always happens, there will be people genuinely angry at what the government is doing and won't see this organised protest for what it really is and only for what it is pretending to be to gain support.

I don't understand why everyone is so excited about this clip? The sheeple who were watching the clip on television obviously didn't get to see the important part, so what is the big deal? A bunch of people on a conspiracy site who already know what's going on get to see the important part... while the sheep were left with the propaganda...

posted on Apr, 17 2009 @ 04:43 AM
I have a LOT on my mind about this subject, but unfortunately, it's nothing that hasn't been said over and over again. Anger is an understatement when it comes to how that video makes me feel.

My vote goes to the blonde, whether I'm voting her into Congress or voting for her to sock that worthless CNN reporter in the chin due to her ignorance.

Regardless, she made the right choice by fighting with strong words, because if I were a female in her shoes, I would've had trouble holding back.

Seems to me all the so called 'right wingers' getting together to protest for the sake of protesting. They don't even know what they're talking about, socialism? If they new what socialism actually is they'd realize how stupid they sound.

The economy? Do they really think the economy was all dandy and suddenly heir bush steps down and all goes to hell?

No, I think there's other reasons for this, childish stubbornness. They are not even willing to give Obama a chance because they don't want him to succeed.

You know how kids are if they decide they don't like someone and they constantly make sly remarks and dig up dirt to gossip about them?

They know Bush was a failure, they want Osama to be a failure also. Bush got a lot of stick and I think this is childish payback.

What a load of freakin loons people are. This isn't about politics at all.

posted on Apr, 17 2009 @ 05:18 AM
Back in the Bush days there weren't so many protests because Heir Bush acted like a demented dictator. People ran the real risk of being detained or sent to some God forsaken place for interrogation due to "un-American" activities.

Now its safe to blabber all you want, and so they do. Obama is seen as more of a civil guy -- and perhaps because of that, an easier target.

Ironically, his actions to turn around the state of affairs in the states and improve them may just serve to release all the pent up anger and steam that built during the oppressive years of the Bush gang.

CNN (Clinton News Network) really blew that one ! LoL
Maybe they should just stick to reporting what little news they can report and leave the heavy hitting to Fox News and other Media outlets like Drudge to report the REAL NEWS.

posted on Apr, 17 2009 @ 05:54 AM
Wow.... Just... Wow... I didn't see that she did anything wrong, honestly. You say it's all propaganda, yet, when the people are shouting mis-informed propaganda, it's OK. I mean seriously, the guy with Obama as hitler? Come on guys. Let's all pull our collective heads out of our arses let's have a reality check. The people there with signs were there to incite emotions, and that's exactly what they did. Where were the counter-protesters standing that day? Don't you think that was all a bit one-sided?

"Your state got 50 billion" Yes, your state did. Without that 50 billion, your state could not function in its same capacity. My state this year is going to need money from the government, due to the huge amount of manpower and resources it took to keep the entire city from flooding... Seems as though you all would rather 10's of thousands of people die than pay a few bucks a paycheck, because taxes are higher.

Bottom line is this: The government is in debt, the only way to pay off this debt is to increase income. The largest income is taxes. So increase the taxes a few % and you increase your income.

Can't afford your mortgage? Maybe you shouldn't have bought such a large house or bought that new SUV. Don't blame the economy and the current administration for your and everyone elses' problems. People live beyond their means, in general. Spend spend spend. I'm just so sick and tired of the finger pointing I think I'm going to explode.

The reporter did make a good point. They are your ELECTED officials. This is the way the governments work.
