It’s not really difficult to figure out how to destroy the Tea Party Movement. There are tried and true methods for doing so.
One stupid way to try to destroy a movement such as the Tea Party Movement is some type of CoIntelPro activity by the state. This type of activity will likely not be successful against the Tea Party movement. Barack Obama Thugs (hereinafter B.O.T.s) already tried such a technique and it blew up in their face. These B.O.T.s announced via their networks and websites their intention to infiltrate Tea Party rallies and pollute them with racist signs meant to discredit the entire movement. Now, if any genuine bigot appears at a Tea Party rally to “support” the movement, said bigot will be assumed to be a B.O.T.
Because of the bumbling B.O.T.s, a CoIntelPro plan of subversion by state authorities will likewise be discredited because canny organizers are now aware, if they ever had any doubts, that they are targets of an organized attempt at disruption. As we noted in Terror From The Stalinist Left B.O.T.s have been active for years in slimy attempts to smear Hillary Supporters and anyone who violates the sensibilities of the Cult of Obama.
These B.O.T.s, because of their own hubris, after years of successfully smearing opponents with these underhanded tactics in a much more secret manner, went public with their smear attempts against the Tea Party movement and in the process have given those of us who have been smeared a vivid example of the type of persons which populate the B.O.T. dens.
We Hillary Supporters and those of us who consider ourselves real Democrats (not Obama Dimocrats), progressives, liberals, members of the Democratic Left and Democratic center and those Americans of whatever political stripe – who believe in free speech and allowing our opponents the right to disseminate their views without interference or infiltration attempts, owe Sarah Palin at the very least a hearty thank you. Sarah Palin persisted in the case against the B.O.T. son of a Dimocratic operative who hacked into her email account and caused all sorts of havoc and misery. We hope the successful Palin prosecution of this B.O.T. will serve as a warning to other B.O.T.s who plot to distort the views of others and to slime and smear opponents.
The absolutely best way to destroy the Tea Party Movement is another type of infiltration: co-opt the movement. The Republican establishment is already on the job with this tactic. Thus far the Tea Party has not been co-opted by the Republican Party but not for lack of trying. A great deal of the Tea Party is in agreement with Republican policies but they know how slimy and untrustworthy Republicans in office can be. It is a lesson real Democrats know about their own party as well.
How successful and deadly is a policy of co-option? Let’s take a quick look at how deadly effective this tactic is, with an examination of groups co-opted by the Dimocratic establishment. We’ve written about how mainline organizations for Women, Gays, and to a lesser extent, Jews, no longer serve the interests of their constituency because they have been co-opted by the Dimocratic establishment. We have shouted “Wake Up! to the Women, Gays, and Jews who are asleep and believe these big dinosaur organizations represent their interests.
These targeted population groups, betrayed by their leadership due to cronyism or incompetence or cowardice (often all three), are Gays, Women, and Jews. Our message to Gays, Women, and Jews is: WAKE UP! – Demand the leadership in your communities confront Obama forcefully.
This week provided addition examples of how right we have been. Recall how we laughed at that “ardent environmentalist” who mewled for “statements of annoyed disappointment” when Obama announced his earlier, but not latest, flip-flop flim-flam on oil drilling? We’ve laughed ourselves silly at the Gay Fools, Straight Fools, Black Fools, White Fools whose love for Obama mattered more than the issues they say are important to them. But like their idol, Barack Obama, their actions betray their words.
This week we have witnessed the Obama gardens of treachery flower as never before. Gay Americans were typically the most blatantly stabbed in the back by Barack Obama. It was so bad that even co-option central, the Human Rights Campaign, mewled out a statement of whiny complaint:
“Today’s letter from Secretary Gates and Admiral Mullen to House Armed Services Committee Chairman Ike Skelton flies in the face of the President’s commitment in the State of the Union address to work with Congress to repeal the discriminatory “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” law this year. If the President is going to fulfill his promise it is essential that he address this contradiction immediately. It is inconceivable that the Secretary of Defense would so blatantly undermine the Commander-in-Chief’s policy commitment.”
These people are so stupid, they deserve at this point all the misery and treachery they get. Gay-Americans who do not realize that Obama hates Gay people deserve all the misery and humiliation they get. Act like a doormat, be treated like a doormat.
Other Gay doormat organizations issued statements of “annoyed disappointment” about the latest Obama treachery (don’t doubt he is behind the Gates letter). The latest Gay beating is so bad that even the co-opted clowns at NothingLeft admit that Obama just does not like Gay people. But these co-opted clowns will continue to raise money for Obama Dimocrats, attack Obama Dimocrats’ opponents, and prove themselves in every way they are useless, co-opted, whores.
Liberals who continue to support Obama Dimocrats are also a good example of how devastating the tactic of co-opting a movement is. Obama this week laughed, mocked, and wiped his feet on these co-opted liberal clowns as well:
“In a seeming rejection of liberal orthodoxy, President Obama has spoken disparagingly about liberal victories before the Supreme Court in the 1960s and 1970s — suggesting that justices made the “error” of overstepping their bounds and trampling on the role of elected officials.”
How stupid are Obama supporting liberals; how stupid are Obama supporting Gay Americans?; just how stupid are Obama supporters? They are either very, very, very, stupid or they are so co-opted that ordinary measures of stupidity cannot even survey the universe of stupidity they inhabit.
And the level of co-opted inhabitants of the stupidity universe is about to grow even larger. Today is May Day and immigration rights rallies, utterly co-opted by Obama Dimocrats, will be on the march. Everyone knows there will be no immigration legislation passed this year because even Barack Obama has admitted it. But the Dimocratic Party will pretend to care about immigration issues in order to scare up votes. Nothing will actually be done, but a lot of flowery words and some blood will be spilled. Today’s immigration rights’ rallies are already completely co-opted by Obama Dimocrats.
But that was then. Now the imperative is to pump up the vote. So, even though he intends to do nothing, Obama will attempt to conquer – with talk. Fools who believe in Obama will believe him on immigration rights too. But nothing will be done. Nothing will “change”. The newly revised Arizona law will withstand legal challenges especially now that Governor Brewer’s earlier objections have been addressed.
Today’s immigrations rights rallies will conflate legal and illegal immigration issues in order to confuse. As we have written before, the immigration issue is now only a tactic for Obama Dimocrats to pump up their vote in the November elections. Labor unions can make a strong argument that increased immigration – both legal and illegal – keeps wages down and is a tactic by big business to break the backs of workers. But labor unions will not make this argument because they have been co-opted by the Dimocratic Party of Barack Obama. Labor unions will keep silent on the effects of increased immigration and wages. The workers will not even hear this aspect of the debate. Labor unions, co-opted by the Dimocratic Party will not voice even the slightest questions about how increased immigration can hurt workers.
Another bit of news which will be downplayed at today’s immigration rights rallies will be any type of violence or rowdy behavior. Big Media spot lights on violence or rowdy behavior or anti-government signs, or bigotry, or calls for violations of law are reserved for the Tea Party movement. Tea Party Grandmas protesting Obama will be targeted by swat teams but today’s rallies will be exempt from examination. Border problems with smugglers/criminals will also be mostly ignored.
There will be little to no Big Media examination of any violence or rowdy behavior at today’s rallies because that would be “racist”. Shouting “racist” is another failed tactic to destroy the Tea Party Movement.
D.K. Jamaal recently encapsulated the case of the “N” word:
“A recently unveiled video proves Tea Party protestors did not, in fact, launch the n-word at Democratic congressmen during the Tea Party protests on the day the Congress passed the health non-reform scam.
Somebody, it appears, owes the tea partiers an apology for smearing them as racist.[snip]
Corporate media reports by outlets such as Washington Post and Huffington Post repeated and propagated the false claim that tea partiers used the n-word on the day in question, slamming tea partiers for their alleged bigotry.
Conservatives, led by right-wing firebrand Andrew Breitbart, demanded proof. After all, there were tons of journalists and amateur videographers at the event.
To date, no video has surfaced proving the n-word claim. Indeed, this video finally proves those claims false.
It shows – as Post-Partisan Examiner wrote weeks ago – that the real racists are the Tea Party’s race baiting opponents. It is pitiful and shameful.“
That video, which exposes the lie about the dreaded “N” word’s non use at the Tea Party rally in question, only hints at why shouts of “racism” will not hurt, nor destroy the Tea Party Movement. Quite the contrary. For a more explicit set of reasons we turn to (gasp!) the New York Times.
This past week, in the “blogginheads” section, two African-American men discussed the Tea Party movement. John McWhorter of the conservative Manhattan Institute and self-described “black progressive” Professor Glenn Loury (Social Sciences as well as Economics at Brown University; formerly at Boston University’s Institute on Race and Social Division) made a strong argument (approximately 6 minutes into the video) as to why “racist” charges will not destroy, but rather enhance the Tea Party Movement:
McWhorter ponders the question of whether the Tea Party Movement is “racist”. After a long-winded but interesting (we’re big fans of 1960s civil rights activist Bob Moses and even bigger fans of Diane Nash, who at the height of the movement fought the sexism of black men in the in the civil rights movement) response the two men tackle the question and fears (about 10:30 into the video) of potential Tea Party racism. “Are they racists?” asks McWhorter.
McWhorter, arguendo, accepts that the notion that the “N” word was used by Tea Party members. Which leads to Loury’s assessment. Loury states (at 16:40) that calling Tea Party activists “racists” and “idiots” (for believing Obama is not a natural born American, and for being against government involvement in government run Social Security/Medicare) is counterproductive. Loury states that if he were a leading Tea Party strategist it would
“be a godsend to have the talking heads at MSNBC or in the op-ed pages of the places calling my people “stupid” and “racists”. Because they are not “stupid”, by and large, and they are not “racists” [snip] and so to have the people with control over the high points of the cultural terrain who are dyed-in-the-wool left of center politically, to call them that, just kind of reinforces their identity as estranged from those sites of cultural power and righteous in their indignation and their alienation from the government. Which is not what you want if you are trying to minimize their political impact.”
Loury adds “So, am I crazy or are we shooting ourselves in the foot to a certain extent by laughing in these people’s faces while they organize?”
Loury is not crazy, and McWhorter actually declares that even with all the contradictions and inchoate demands of the Tea Party Movement, they seek coherence and are rational.
McWhorter then hits, right on target how to destroy the Tea Party Movement. McWhorter says “We should listen to what these people are saying.”
That’s the way to destroy the Tea Party Movement. Listen to them. Treat them with respect. Seek to understand. That advice is valid, not because we are bleeding heart liberals, but because “they” are voters. And Gordon Brown (it wasn’t Mexican immigrants that prompted the debate on immigration in Britain) in Britain now understands that calling voters bigots because they ask questions is a very stupid thing to do if you want to build a political party.
B.O.T.s and Obama are flapping about these days trying to get votes. They have lost some of the strongest activists because they are thugs. Peggy Noonan, a Hillary Hater from way back and a HillaryIs44 attacker, in her own way is beginning to understand what is happening in the political landscape and how Obama has transformed, into a dead wreck, the once great Democratic Party. Noooooonan writes:
“This is not the old, conservative and long-lampooned “I don’t trust gummint” attitude of the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s. It’s something new, or rather something so much more broadly and fully evolved that it constitutes something new. The right never trusted the government, but now the middle doesn’t. I asked a campaigner for Hillary Clinton recently where her sturdy, pantsuited supporters had gone. They didn’t seem part of the Obama brigades. “Some of them are at the tea party,” she said.”
All Hillary supporters might not be at the Tea Party, but very few of us are drinking Kool-aid. That Hopium laced concoction kills.
Transformative Obama has made one indisputable transformation in cement:
“Democrats have glimpsed their biggest threat this fall, and she is Grandma.
One reason President Barack Obama and other party leaders are rolling out campaigns this week to energize young and minority voters for November’s elections is that they’ve seen the polling data on senior citizens, and it’s ugly.”
In short, Grandma is at the Tea Party with some Hillary supporters and all are giving the skunk eye to Obama’s Dimocrats. Barack Obama is destroying the winning Hillary Clinton/FDR coalition:
“The number of seniors whom FDR converted to Democrats in the ’30s is shrinking fast.
A majority of seniors backed Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona over Obama in 2008. The seniors’ current tilt toward Republicans is being reinforced by Obama’s biggest accomplishment as president: the health care overhaul.
A George Washington University Battleground Poll this month found that only 36 percent of likely voters who were 65 and older approved of the health care legislation, which expands and mandates health insurance coverage. That was the lowest approval rating of any voter age group.
For November’s congressional elections, the poll found that seniors are far more inclined to vote for Republicans than for Democrats, by 48 percent to 33 percent.
“Other than enthusiasm of our base, it’s probably the biggest problem we face,” said Celinda Lake , the Democratic pollster partner of the bipartisan poll.”
Only now are B.O.T.s in the “creative class” slapped in the face with the Revelation of reality. The reality is that Barack Obama has chased away from the Democratic Party the very forces that constituted the Democratic Party. Now all that remains is a Hopium crazed circus that will go to a party but does not care to build one:
“Seniors are far more likely to vote in nonpresidential elections than young voters are. In the latest Gallup tracking poll, 41 percent of seniors were “very enthusiastic” about voting this year, nearly twice as high as registered voters younger than 30.
Consider two independent seniors who live in the retirement community of Sun City West, Ariz. :
Helen Burnside , 84, a retired nursing school dean, voted for Obama because “the country was going to hell in a handbasket” under Republicans.
She thought that a health care overhaul was needed but she fears that with the new law “the whole thing’s going to implode.” She’s disappointed in the Democrats’ failure to enact an immigration overhaul, and she thinks that the money Democrats have taken from Wall Street donors compromises them as much as it does Republicans.
“I generally vote,” Burnside said, but this year “I don’t know who our people are.”
Faye Liebling , 78, voted for McCain in 2008 because she doubted that Obama could deliver on many promises. She hasn’t changed her mind.
“With this medical bill, where’s he going to get the money?” she said. “Who’s going to pay for it?” She didn’t like the bailouts for auto companies and banks, either. The bank bailouts began under former President George W. Bush but they continued under Obama.
“If I would vote Democrat, it’s like I am supporting him,” she said of Obama. “And I’ll be very honest, I don’t want to support him. I don’t agree with him on a lot of things.“
Obama Dimocrats and the Dimocratic establishment did not listen to Hillary Clinton or to Hillary Clinton supporters. Obama Dimocrats and the Dimocratic establishment did not listen to the White Working Class but instead shouted “racists”, “bitter”, “clinging”. Obama Dimocrats and the Dimocratic Party did not listen to Seniors. Obama Dimocrats and the Dimocratic Party will not listen to the Tea Party Movement either.
In November however, at the voting booth, we will all be heard.
