The tea parties were owned and paid for by big corporations... there was nothing grass roots about it... on another thread I opinioned that it would be a dud and not even 500,000 would show up nationwide and the last I heard the total was in the 200,000 range... smaller than the population of the valley I live in. It didn't help any that a bunch of hard core right wing nut jobs tried to hijack the whole thing.

I really don't know where you get your information, but the totals are more like one million+. Seriously, in my little town of 17,000 people, 500 attended!!!

I think the number was on NPR but even a million with a population of 330 million its paltry no matter how you cut it.

And no I know its just not one party after the other but it is about ideologies. and yes they were corporate financed.

As a party organizer, I can say without a lie that ours had no corporate money involved. It was 100% grassroots, which I think probably describes the vast majority of the parties across the country. Yes, I think that the Atlanta party and probably a few others, had big money behind them and were also somewhat controled by the GOP
But I think that most party organizers were not willing to le tthe GOP take control - like myself.

As for attendance, my goal with the next one is 1,000 in attendance. This movement will grow by leaps and bounds in the coming months, as people continue to lose their jobs and to read DHS documents about how they're all terrorists in one way or another. I think I qualify as a terrorist in atleast 5 different areas. Everyone that attended a tea party fits the bill of a DHS domestic terrorist.

Here's the video on YouTube for those who use it.



I have to say this is what all of America should have been doing on April 15, 2009.

Soon Grover you are going to find yourself on the wrong side of things. Partisans are fast becoming the problem and always have been. The negative comments are almost entirely coming from DNC controlled sources.

Here is Anchorage there were 1,100 at the first event and I don't know how many at another later in the day. We have a category here of "Undeclared" in our voter registration. I think many were in that group with a mixture of Right and Left. MSNBC, NBC and many others flat out lied and purposefully put together misleading tapes to demonize the participants. I'm sure the good little Partisan Far Left Groupies will lie with them but most of us lie in the middle somewhere and that is who is attracted.

NPR is a pure Left Wing tool. How it gets away with being so Partisan on the tax payers dollar I don't know, but I know only Partisans listen to it. I've tried, I could not. Even CNN is better which is not saying much.

Being a DNC or RNC tool is fast becoming a bad place to be. People have woken up to the fact both Parties are the bad and run by evil men. I think you willl see this thing grow as the economy worsens.

unfortunately, there are still so many well-meaning and intelligent people in this culture that still perceive reality thru a partisan lens.. the crowds at the tea parties are a good sign, but we have so much further to go; methinks the system has to crumble completely before we can rebuild it the right way; fasten your seatbelts ladies and gentlemen.. the next few years will be very interesting indeed..

At the risk of generalization, it seems to me that the only people who don't see the 'tea parties' as being partisan are people who are typically conservative.

It's like saying we went to Iraq to 'save' the people there from Saddam. It's CONVENIENT to say so, and, in part, even true. But it doesn't begin to explain the bigger picture of what was and is, really going on.

Ditto the 'tea parties'. Sure, boo hiss, government needs a good kick in the pants to show them they serve us, not the other way around.

But. That isn't an accurate description of the bigger picture. You're being manipulated. You're being used to attack and divide. And if you don't see it, you need to step back out of the trees in order to see the whole forest.

So it's CONVENIENT to say that this is a simple grass roots movement of the people, by the people, for the people. Making it easy to discount anyone that sees the thing for what it truly is.

Slick work, isn't it?

"I have devoted my life to the conservative movement"...

To bad the people are fed up with both republicans and democrats, and the current system (extreme liberal IMO - but extreme conservative is just as bad).

Look at that politician looking at his paper for what to say...reading straight off of the paper.

You fight for the conservatives, but the people are not of it.
You fight for the liberals (not this guy), but the people are not of it.

You can only fight for the people, or against the people. Damn straight there is freedom of speech - take it with a grain of salt you politician and respect the peoples opinions that get you into office.

This is what I got from him. "We do not disagree...BAHHHHt either way, support me, because of freedom of speech."

I watched a morning news program this past weekend in which Eric Cantor, the GOP Whip, was interviewed. Amidst a lot of fluffy pat-on-the-back questions, the interviewer pointed out that Cantor's sudden alliance with the "take back America" protestors was out of sync with his stalwart support of the Bush administration's actions. He became visibly uncomfortable and said something to the effect of, "Well, look...you know...there have been mistakes on both sides *shuffles feet back and forth*...but, you know, two wrongs don't make a right." In other words, "Yes, I've willingly led the country to disaster, but now that it's convenient to fight against exorbitant spending, I think I'll take up the American flag I've pissed upon and step in line with the little people." Something about these politicians who are suddenly crowing about the Constitution and government failures inspires an intense desire to punch them in the face. I'm sure many Americans would love to do much worse.

Sorry, but its both sides. Through my own generalization - its people like you that continue putting the blame on a side.

I have seen some STUPID conservatives.
I have seen some STUPID liberals.

But a generalization based off of a minority opinion is ludicrous.

Good find. Too bad the only clear sign said "Hope Obama Fails" or something like that. This is an otherwise perfect example of how the Tea Parties are not just filled with racist neoconservatives.


Tell me now, Just how were the Tea parties racists?

theWCH is arguing that they weren't racist, contrary to MSNBC/CNN arguments.

Well of course if we're looking at the bigger picture, it IS both sides.

But in the case of the tea parties, it HAS been subverted by the Right. It doesn't make the core issue less true, or worthy, but don't allow yourself to be manipulated because of your concerns for the core issues.

Just as Climate change has been subverted by the Left.

Now, I do believe in Climate change, but I also believe that beyond the core issue, we have groups of people using this to further agendas; to demonize; it's become a tool with which to motivate and rally people against others.

Same as the Tea Parties. I can't put it any plainer; it's a convenient tool to use against this administration. And it IS being used.

Okay idiots listen up. By looking at the Congressman in the video here, I would say that he's done more than most politicians in terms of actually doing something for the Tea Party movement:

www.barrett.house.gov...

www.govtrack.us...



111th CONGRESS

1st Session

H. R. 1814

To amend the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 to extend the discretionary spending limits through fiscal year 2014, to extend paygo for direct spending, and for other purposes.

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

March 31, 2009

Mr. BARRETT of South Carolina (for himself, Mr. INGLIS, Mr. PAUL, Mr. WESTMORELAND, Mr. AKIN, and Mrs. BACHMANN) introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on the Budget, and in addition to the Committee on Rules, for a period to be subsequently determined by the Speaker, in each case for consideration of such provisions as fall within the jurisdiction of the committee concerned


Oh my, did I just see Congressman Paul's name on that?

And by the way, why are we purposely trying to draw a line in the sand saying that all politicians in DC are trash? We have Ron Paul in there as well as some others but you people are just calling for outright anarchy it would seem often times these days.
Who is to say that there aren't some good people left there that might simply be too scared to do otherwise? Some of them are simply asleep as some of us have called it. Wake them up, not all Representatives are non-representing. Some just need a good talking to. If it's a new Congressman who is going in after winning an election against the old guy why not just give them a good talking to before they get caught up in everything. Not everything is a conspiracy in the movement of politics and not everyone is involved.
Talk about paranoia.

Shame, I had to turn it off after a minute, when all I hear, is one knucklehead, yelling "Go Home", every 3 seconds.

HE shoulda gone home, so I could've at least watched and listened to the darned video without an ignorant monkey yelling "Go Home!" every 3 seconds like a 4 year old.
