Skip to comments.FBI spied on TEA Party Americans!
Posted on 04/20/2009 5:26:24 AM PDT by Opinionatedtoday
Even as average Americans were planning to get out in towns and cities to demonstrate against Big Government and Big Taxes, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) surveillance was being unleashed upon them. In fact, unsuspecting Tax Day TEA Party participants were being closely watched during the demonstration planning stages in a covert operation that began on or about March 23, 2009.

I’m sure we were. No biggie, they do the same with all large protest movements.
Whether it’s right or not is another matter.
Why don’t they go catch some real terrorists? Buncha leftist loons.
And we hear this from the CANADIAN press?
I hope the FedGov is very, very afraid.
You listening, BARRY?
Spy away. I’ll keep believing that too much government and too much government spending is a bad thing for this country.
Gee....Must’ve been flunkies who couldn’t do real detective work.
Just love Bozo and his TRANSPARENCY
Too many ‘Defenders of Freedom’ (aka Vets) - ‘Right Wing Extremists’, who think the Constitution should be upheld participated, so the feds had to be there to check us out.
According to the article they (FBI) collected email addresses too. But one way or another they’re going to be able to trace every one one of us they want to. I’ve never heard of the group NEIN and don’t know if these allegations are true, but I would be surprised if they weren’t.
And your surprised? Didn’t you hear that the Feds have started practicing profiling?
Wow. The last administration watched CAIR for jihadists. This one watches small government conservatives.
If I'm not on a couple of their "lists" already, then I've been lax in my efforts...
I have more important things to worry about.
Good! I didn’t say anything at or in the lead up to the Tea Party, that I don’t say everyday, at my house, Town Council or on line,let them listen.
You can bet your Bippy that if you are posting in Free Republic the FBI is watching.
After November 4, 2008 the “leftist loons” became their ally.
Christians, legitmate gun owners, whites, conservatives, individuals who support the Constitution became their enemy.
As a result of the election of ‘08 everything changed, and in my opinion, for the worse. Black became white, white became black, wrong became right, right became wrong, up became down, down became up.
Under the leadership of the mesiah this Nation will sinl into a level of perversion and degenercy that it , and few civilizations, has ever reached.
I think you are correct. We have every right to speak out against this administration. The left certainly didn’t hold back when it came to President Bush. You had Senators criticizing him while we had boots on the ground — it doesn’t get much lower than that.
I’m not saying that NEIN is liars, but you need to be very careful with anything coming from them. Second source it if possible. When they quote an undisclosed “source”, it would not be wise to put too much credence into it.
Which reporter will have the balls to ask this question of Gibbs in the daily presser? Where are you David Gregory????
or if you are NAVY
Hello! Time to wake up.
It is a sorry state of affairs when we have to get our news out of Canada or Britain.
I’ve been flying the Gadsden for about a year now.
A local Christian school near my house is flying the DTOM flag. I was favorably impressed and stopped in to offer compliments.
The Fart, Barf, and Itch can watch me all they want.
Queue the eerie music - I would put money on it that web forums on both sides of the political spectrum including us here on FR have FBI or other even more secret watchdog groups monitor what is said here. And I would also bet it is nothing new.
Old Glory was a rag and needed to be retired, so I replaced her with the Gadsden. The American made Gadsden was $10 more than the Chinese one, but I bought it anyway.
That identical post must not have worked the first 32 times you posted it, so you decided to spam FR with if for the 33rd time, huh?
I was at the Flemington, NJ Tea Party which was small, going by national totals. There were three guys across the street and one was video taping for about an hour. The other two in suits & ties, were just standing there with their arms folded in front, not saying a word. I got the impression that they were either State Police or FBI.
It felt like the gestapo were watching us and I didn’t appreciate it.
The last administration watched small government conservatives too. The dividing line is "state" (i.e., "the government") and those who seek to diminish the state.
Why don't they investigate Dodd, and Frank, and Rangle, Schumer and Waxman, etc.
Not everyone reads all the threads rookie. You were the first negitive post. There is always one dark cloud poster.
No doubt some if not most of the folks with fancy photgraphy equipment were gathering intelligence and not journalists.
Good. Hope they comprehend the meaning of “MASSIVELY,HOPELESSLEY OUTNUMBERED”.
Maybe the next one will make them feel like that poor guy standing on the beach when tsunami struck.
Don't be lulled. The intelligence community monitors ALL the time, not just when a particular president is in office.
Problem here for their management is they still haven't really solved the ANTHRAX ATTACK. Sure, they got a dead guy, but he can't answer some serious questions ~ like "How did you get the stuff in and out of the lab", and they can't answer them either.
The FBI also needs to address the question of why they focused on covering up Leftwingtard involvement in the ANTHRAX ATTACK, and why they brought a Leftwingtard guy over from the CIA to supervise the investigation.
All highly suspicious and certainly the sort of behavior to create in the rest of us a lack of confidence in their abilities to investigate serious issues.
Tea Party arrests for unruly behaviour: 0
The FBI must have been deeply saddened.
Yeah, and believe me my "bippy" has gotten pretty big sitting around reading Free Republic for the last 11 years!
There's a reason for that. One of them is that it's today, and not yesterday.
Now we might ask if these threads elicit discussion and consideration, and just who are you newbie?
If you're part of the Obamista Truther Squad, get used to it. We frequently discuss ALL the articles about anything of interest to us. We expect the watchers at the FBI, ATF, Treasury AND the DNC to behave themselves and just STFU. It's your lot in life to read while it's our opportunity to analyze, organize and prepare to take action on important public policy considerations.
Well, color me surprised. /s
There were four black uniformed atop the California capitol building surveying the crowd with binoculars. I’m sure they were just there for our safety.
Because Zero's been POTUS for only three months, and hasn't been able to let enough of them into the US yet.
First time I saw this post. Thanks for posting it again, otherwise I would have missed it. Things cycle off the main page pretty quickly.
Yes, but seriously now. How can you so conveniently overlook the tens of millions of dollars of property damage, all the tear gas unleashed on us, the faces covered with red bandanas, storming the barricades, the bombings, and calling the police foul and degrading names?
I like the message, but I’ve seen it so many times, it gets irritating - 33 friggin times IS spam.
LMAO, calling me rookie, that’s kind of funny, as if it means anything. ROFL.
This is an attempt to scare people away from participating in future demonstrations. Understand that people.
The Left and self-serving politicians in DC will rue the day when unruly behaviour starts on our side.
What would give you that idea? I'll bet I'm more involved with conservative politics than you'll ever be. I just get sick of seeing the same spam posted ad nauseum. It does nothing to support our conservative causes, in fact, it takes away from the message.
I have no problem with discussion, and fully support it, that's why I take some time from my day to read, read, read, and on occasion, post in discussion. However, when I click to refresh and look for something new, and see the same thing posted ONCE AGAIN, it gets boring and irritating, even if I agree as much as I do with the original intent of the post.
