Axelrod Says 'Tea Party' Protesters Are 'Wrong'


Link to Fox News

As was to be expected, David Axelrod, the head smoochy face of the Obama talk machine has gone on record in the typical fashion of minimizing, discounting and vilifying anyone who would speak out against the current administration, or it's policies and goals.


"I don't think it's indicative of the nation's mood," Axelrod said on CBS' "Face the Nation." "You know, I don't think we ought to be distracted by that. My message to them is, they're wrong."




Axelrod suggested Sunday that the more over-the-top demonstrations were representative of a minority view -- the kind exhibited at some town hall meetings over the summer.

"I don't believe that some of the angriest, most strident voices we saw during the summer were representative of the thousands of town hall meetings that went on around the country that came off peacefully, that were constructive, people voicing their points of view," Axelrod said. "You know, one of the great things about our country is people can express themselves even if they're not representative of the majority."


I find this part particularly amusing. Yeah, we can express ourselves. It's not going to be listened to. It will be dismissed and we will be spoken to like children, but we can express ourselves. We can also be considered low level terrorists for expressing ourselves.

I am impressed that it took only one day to officially poo poo the efforts of tens of thousands of people and that those voices didn't matter.

You know what? None of your voices matter to them. You are all wrong. Iy could be twenty MILLION people marching on Washington and it would still be dismissed as not representative of what the people are thinking and feeling.

These poeple are not going to listen to reason. They are not going to listen to peaceful protest, so in THAT, tea party goers, protesters, those of you who write your representatives, YOU'RE are all WRONG.




Edit to Make Title more clear.

One of the things heard most at the tea parties, town halls, protests, and marches in general is "I have never done anything like this before". That is indicative of average people being fed up with the current circumstance. I would assume that for every person who took action, there are at least 10-100 that feel the same way but took no action. Axelrod, you are wrong, keep fighting the good fight America.

Id like to know what directives the story writer was told to follow..I bet it was something to this effect..

Write something that completely reverses the number of protestors and to tell them that you should be broke and losing their homes and love it..Make sure they embrace the fact that the countries broke and be silent..Make sure you emphasize be silent,..Make them feel that they are the minority and resistance is futile..

And then we get this shmuck reading this on tv...My god,have these people sold their souls for a paycheck?

But you all knew it was going to happen like this, right?

It makes me wonder if there is ANY number of people that could sway this administration.

I was really sort of dissappointed when the detracting, minimizing statements didn't come out right after the protest. They waited a day. I would have loved to have been privy to the conversation they had when they decided to do the same crap they've done along, and downplay the attendance of that enormous crowd.

(I don't think you're wrong guys. I hope you know that.

That's got to be some of the worst damage control I have ever seen in my life.

Discrediting them will only embolden these people. Gerald Celente was right, there's a revolution growing in this country. I doubted it myself until that huge protest yesterday.

Today I took the oppourtunity to read some of what was on the DailyKos. I just wanted to see what the left was saying about the Tea Party Protests.

First, no one used the words Tea Party. They, the bloggers on the site called them teabaggers. They also stated that numbers were way off, maybe a few thousand, if that. They blamed the media of inflating the numbers and treated any disagreement with Obama as ludicrous.

This is the mantra that will be repeated daily.

One of our own, has a thread about the protests. I think you'd get a fairer representation from his thread then anywhere in the MSM.

At least someone from the administration actually acknowleged the protest. Wasn't it Gibbs who stated that he was unaware of anything going on saturday?

S&F
The title made me go, "WHAT?"

I saw that thread by SD. It blew me away. I had goosebumps and some strange feeling I haven't experienced in a long time....I think some call it 'pride.'

I was proud of the whole event. I am a thousand miles away and pretty poor, so it was out of the question for me to attend, but I was in awe of the attendance.

Whether you agree with the movement or not, you have to admit that the participants did it with class. No arrests (that I've heard) no trouble. Just peaceful protest.

Boo-yah. . . . IMHO

Hate to spam my own thread but Revolution in America necessary or not?
The marginalization of a crowd that size would probably be a reason for a revolution.

MSM and the asshats like them have a reckoning coming.

Indeed. I have made a couple comments in other threads to that effect. I was very proud and very thankful that SD had shared those images with us and that I had the opportunity, being apart of this community, to get a better understanding of how things work in the talk machine.

Just that 'small' number of protesters, was quite a spectacle. Strange and fascinating times.

To a certain extent, my friend, I think what we are witnessing IS revolution. Yes, it IS necessary, just not necessarily confined to one's interpretation of what it should look like.

The crowd was the evidence of revolution. The marginalization of it is just the administration hiding under the covers, wishing the monster would go away.

Really? REALLY? Well, they obviously aren't out of touch, they just don't want others to catch on that a lot of Americans are PEEVED.

For a lot of people it has nothing to do with Obama, with whether or not he was born in Kenya, about whether or not he's Muslim/socialist, etc.

Most of us are tired of our flippin government acting as if they know what is best for us and completely ignoring us!

This comment is a perfect example...what he really said was:

"Yeah, I saw all those people protesting, I know what thier problem is and we in the government could really give a rat's butt what they want. We know how things should be handled."

This reminds me of when my boyfriend went to the 4/15 protest in my town. I couldn't go because I was working and he was calling me here and there. At one point he called me because he was utterly shocked at how many people were there. He said that the already large crowd started to march from the park to the Capital and they came around the corner and were met by double the crowd they already had. He said he was being very conservative about the number because he didn't want to overexaggerate but thought there might have been about 300 people.

On the news, they only showed a very small crowd of about 50 people that were left after everyone started going a little while after they got to the capital to protest.

I watched that this morning, 'Face the Nation" is nothing more than a stroke the administrations ego machine. All their guests were all from the left.

Somebody mentioned something about Gerald Celente(sp?) earlier and if you also remember he said this would be the third shot and they better not ignore it and that is exactly what they are doing.

Oh well, there is a saying that says don't bite the hand that feeds you, and I guess they really need to look deep down inside and figure out who the hand really is that feeds them.

Park officials and Police were estimating that at least 1.5 million people were there yesterday. That was the "backdoor" estimates that they were making as it was happening.

Now figure that for ever person there, there were at LEAST 10 that wished they could have managed to be there.

That's a whole heck of a lot of Americans

Axelrod & the left media can try and spin this all they want, the people who actually care about what happened yesterday know the truth.

Oh yeah, and that crowd picked up all their trash as they left, unlike the crowd at the inauguration.

That's almost symbolic in a way....

THe people who still care about America (as America was formed to be) are ready to clean up all the trash they have let get into DC.

2010 is gonna be an interesting election

BTW, see my sig line...

I wanted so much for the numbers to be the same on those. (the inauguration and the march) Yes, you are absolutely right. It is very symbolic.

I DO realize that this is the spoon we get from the puppets that dance for the puppets in Washington, the MSM.

That one video was awesome, where the crowd was so loud that the CNN reporter couldn't do her typical crud spewing. It was very entertaining. One of the parts about the whole thing that made me proud was when she turned to ask the crowd a question. Someone spoke up with a bullhorn and and said to let her speak. It wasn't ugliness. I'm sure some people really wanted it to be though.

Peaceful, conscientious expression. It was a thing of beauty and a piece of the history of this nation.
