Tea Parties Forever (Krugman psycho rant - Tea Party/Tax Revolt updates and links)
The New York Times ^ | April 13, 2009 | Paul Krugman

Posted on 04/13/2009 2:04:54 AM PDT by abb

This is a column about Republicans — and I’m not sure I should even be writing it.

Today’s G.O.P. is, after all, very much a minority party. It retains some limited ability to obstruct the Democrats, but has no ability to make or even significantly shape policy.

Beyond that, Republicans have become embarrassing to watch. And it doesn’t feel right to make fun of crazy people. Better, perhaps, to focus on the real policy debates, which are all among Democrats.

snip

One way to get a good sense of the current state of the G.O.P., and also to see how little has really changed, is to look at the “tea parties” that have been held in a number of places already, and will be held across the country on Wednesday. These parties — antitaxation demonstrations that are supposed to evoke the memory of the Boston Tea Party and the American Revolution — have been the subject of considerable mockery, and rightly so.

snip

Last but not least: it turns out that the tea parties don’t represent a spontaneous outpouring of public sentiment. They’re AstroTurf (fake grass roots) events, manufactured by the usual suspects. In particular, a key role is being played by FreedomWorks, an organization run by Richard Armey, the former House majority leader, and supported by the usual group of right-wing billionaires. And the parties are, of course, being promoted heavily by Fox News.

But that’s nothing new, and AstroTurf has worked well for Republicans in the past. The most notable example was the “spontaneous” riot back in 2000 — actually orchestrated by G.O.P. strategists — that shut down the presidential vote recount in Florida’s Miami-Dade County.

Tea Parties are over. There are no Tea Parties this week. They will take place but the cards are against any impact.

The rescue of Captain Phillips will be the only news this week (except for fuzzy new puppy footage) and if the Tea Parties get any news coverage whatsoever, it will be from the angle that the US is celebrating a heroic rescue and a bunch of Obama-haters are whining and bashing America. To make matters worse, the only press coverage will be from Fox and AM Radio which will further support the premise that the right wing is out of touch with Main Stream America while “Real Americans” celebrate a heroic military action led by the Commander In Chief!

The only hope was that they would be so heavily supported that even the MSM could not ignore them. Now they will be smeared.

I was at the chad ‘riots’ that shouted down Jessie ‘White Corporate Dweeb Shakedown’ Jackson. There were a lot of freepers there, but as far as I know, it wasn’t organized. I did see one motor home with some young, whitebread, dufus idiot Republicans in it that were, A. Pussy’s. B. Clueless. C. Radiated immense privilege. D. Were dislike and never seen more that a few feet. They were at the voting secretary’s office and I think young lawyers. Anyways, they were total stiffs.

Maybe Krugman isn’t aware that the American Revolution was supported by about 1/3 of the population at that time, at most.

Minorities can do amazing things when their backs are against the wall, so to speak.

I don't personally care for the tea party events. I don't really see the point.

I know what you mean. But I am going to go. I believe all movements start somewhere and that bodies count in these things. Personally, I think the label "tea party" allows coverage to be along the lines of "these people don't want to pay taxes. Don't they want the roads, a fire department, a police force?"

However, things are going terribly wrong in this country ... the Constitution and our founding principles are out the window. And we get nothing but lies and perversions. The Bowing Obama incident brought this home to me. That they can calmly lie in the face of a contradictory video, just brings home to me the fact that they've been calmly lying all along.

My letter-writing has been met with silence or form letters proving my letter wasn't even read. Where do I go to change a predatory government, if not to the streets?

Yes it was, and the beers afterwards!

I’ve received my big money check from the Mellon’s, so I will be at the Boston party, Wednesday.

It’s part of my heritage.
This Irish guy was walking down a street and he sees a big brawl. He taps a guy on the shoulder and says, “Is this a private fight, or can anyone join?”

Take care, Patriot!

From now on I will be referring to this new propagandist alignment of the US media in the following manner, and I suggest that we all here adopt the same approach as well.

MEDIA FASCIST!

That is what Paul Krugman (and his compatriots) has brought to this country.

They are now all FASCISTS because they levy hate upon the the precept of the two-party system.

Well done.

The thing to keep in mind when considering Paul Krugman is that his purpose at the New York Times is to provide intellectual camoflage for what would otherwise rightly be seen as crude propaganda. In the social circles inhabited by the Times' remaining 15 or 20 readers, a Nobel Prize resting lightly upon the mantle conveys both unquestionable academic stature and unimpeachable character. What the heck: it worked for Al Gore, he of the drowning polar bears and inexorably rising seas.

This guy is a boob. One of my liberal colleagues said the same thing this morning. I calmly asked him that if this was a big Republican organized event (astroturfing he called it), then why did the Pittsburg Tea party have Dr. Alan Keyes as their keynote speaker on saturday? Would the GOP actually pay to provide a platform to Dr. Keyes, who repudiated the GOP and joined the AIP?

He couldn’t answer that.

Krugman’s spittle and drivel about the supposedly ( his take) “meaningless” tea parties recalls the classic argument one can use against atheists..to wit: “If God doesn’t exist, as you profess, then why are you so concerned about those of us who believe in Him?”

This travesty which wallows in lies, innuendo, and exaggerations is so beneath the standard one has a right to expect from a Nobel prize winner publishing in the New York Times that one is confronted with the reality that Paul Krugman, the Nobel Prize committee, and the New York Times have utterly prostituted their reputation to move the leftist agenda.

The Left's concerted attack on the concept of "value" (in fact: on objective reality) has borne bitter fruit. In our time, ethical and behavioral standards have eroded dramatically, a fact that ought to evoke shame but instead brings shrugs. In such an environment, things like Reputation and Honor appear as antiquated artifacts, faded reminders of a past long gone and blown across the landscape by the leveling wind of egalitarianism.

When newspapers are pimps and writers their whores, one who abstains from their influence might be forgiven for taking satisfaction in the knowledge that whatever their paying customers may come away with, it will be an empty, soul-denying experience.
