Skip to comments.Tea Party: Beware of the Imposters!
Posted on 04/03/2010 9:28:39 PM PDT by GVnana
Just received the following email alert regarding the Tax Day Tea Party for Sacramento, CA.:
Many of us have been getting disturbing emails and phone calls regarding the counter protests or "crashers" we are expecting on the day of our event. This did happen last year as well so plan for it. It's much better to be prepared than surprised.
Here are some suggestions for our event and "crashers":
1. We will introduce ourselves to the local police on that day as the permit holder. We have already spoken with Officer Troy on many occasions and he knows us and is aware of these possibilities.
The best way to handle these people is to report them to the law enforcement who is there and ask that they be removed by the police since Tea Party Patriots hold the permit for the event. Don't attempt to deal with "crashers" yourself, they are looking to incite people and get it on video.
2. We will have 200 from our group doing security (Crowd Observation) for the event. We have many retired military or police persons who have volunteered for this duty. Have the phone number for the police handy (and your cell phone) and call if you see anything happening. We will have people scanning the crowd for trouble makers who will also let our attendees know of the possibility of infiltrators so they too will be on the look out and make sure they know not to deal with these people but to have them removed if they are being unruly.
3. Have pre-made signs that say THESE PEOPLE ARE INFILTRATORS! with a big arrow and when they cause a ruckus have people stand by them with the sign. This will usually make them go away as it ruins their reason for being there.
4. If any of you have video cameras, please bring them and take video of our event so we will have eyes all over the event. If anyone tires to talk about our event in a negative way you will have a visual diary of the event. Remember they are out to say we are all racists, and wing nuts! They are also out to prove that we are violent.
Whatever you do - DO NOT give them anything that will confirm what they are trying to say about us. Exercise self control and remember your higher calling. We never want to lower ourselves to be on their level.
This will be OUR event and we will do it with dignity, since that is our nature.

Thanks, my 16 yr old daughter said last night she was going to wear her elephant lapel pin we bought for her on our trip to DC summer before last. She is quite the outspoken and upcoming young Republican, I know she will remember this and getting involved forever.
I bet Congressman Barney Frank (D-Mass.) could tell you where to grab them.
At the Rally that you organized through Free Republic on Feb 27, 2009 Mr. Meckler was there.
He had nothing to do with organizing it and no influence of his group (that takes credit for EVERY Tea Party across the country on that day) inspired you or FR to initiate that tea party.
But from an article dated March 18th of this year lo and behold he himself is an "imposter" himself posing as the leader of the Tea Party Movement along with Jenny Beth Martin.
Here is a quote from Meckler from the above mentioned linked article:
Everyone should attend the tax day teaparty in Sacto that wants to go, because no matter how hard the Mecklers and Martins of this world try to take credit for tea parties and try to be the self proclaimed leaders, it's everyone that supports and shows up at tea parties that are the leaders.Don't give them any money.
Mark Meckler, 48, a lawyer in Sacramento and independent who was a Republican until eight years ago, threw a party on February 27 thinking he would have six attendees. Instead, 150 people showed up.
"That inspired me to keep going," he said.
They will solicit for it but are not worthy of support IMO
When you find them get the crowd to chant - NO BLACK SHIRTS! NO BLACK SHIRTS!
“I bet Congressman Barney Frank (D-Mass.) could tell you where to grab them. “
Nah, Barney might enjoy it....
We know no one can legitimately claim the mantle of "organizer." We were all organizers at that point.
It's true that FreeRepublic started the Sacramento party, and our old friend, Mark Williams, came on board very early. But Meckler was there -- that's where I met him, after some email correspondence -- and in fact he was instrumental in applying legal pressure to the capital police to allow us to remain on the capital grounds.
Tea Party Patriots is a very organized group and very effective. They are doing good work in developing community candidate forums, etc.
You wouldn’t by any chance still have a link to that early Sacramento thread with the noose and the lightening bolt, would you?
You can probably bet money that the Communists will be sending agent provocateurs to discredit the Tea Parties, ESPECIALLY the one on the 15th. To all who attend, BE ON YOUR GUARD. If anyone starts an incident, whether you can stop them quickly or not, make SURE to get them on camera enough to identify them later. Our message to the Commies needs to be, “go ahead and try to discredit us, WE WILL EXPOSE WHO YOU REALLY ARE.” If we can take down “the Dan”, we can out some lefty infiltrators.

Check THIS out too.
That reminds me of the “Pacifists” in Austin TX. My dauther told me “don’t piss them off, the pacifists will throw rocks and bottles at you if you do”
And when we had a group of Freepers at the debates between Gov.candidates in 2002, the union thugs showed up drunk, all arrived together on a bus, matching shirts and hats and signs, and they were all bent on roughing up the ladies in our group.
I suggest many groups of documented trusted participants that are thoroughly confirmed as authentic armed with some very good video recorders.
Remember these impostors want anonymity as they want to be the burr under the saddle so to speak at a lot of events.
They will follow the tea party like a pack of hungry mongrels.
And it might even help to put their mug shots on posters.
"Is Obama a 'TEA BAGGER'?"
"Obama is a 'Birther'!"
Two things I’d urge you have...
1. A metal LOUD whistle that can call authorities to your location.
2. (Women) a can of wasp and hornet spray if you are attacked.
This is why I don’t go to TEA Parties. The one I went to was infiltrated. I could tell as soon as I got there. The RonPaul crowd were the most obvious, but there were others.
The Tea Parties I have been at were stunk up by
the PaulBots handing out their 9/11 Truther crap.
Well, that was my point. As you saw from his quote, he was THE organizer.
Anyone who organizes a tea party can be called the organizer, nothing wrong with that. If they didn't they shouldn't say they did
I stand by all of my points, some people are damaging the effectiveness with their desire to claim false credit and turning tea party individuals and chapters (for want of a better word) against one another.
: > )
Now off to get my 4 hrs of sleep
Shoot me a better date spread than “early Sacramento thread” and I might be able to find it
One of the tactics they used a few years back (here in DC) was to come up to you as if they were a reporter and wanted to ask you a question. They’d even have a camera person with them. But, then they’d get in your face and start to ask you some stupid liberal questions. They’d keep at you hoping you’d say something threatening. Or get enraged to “show” on their website how hostile the right are.
Just keep saying NO! to them.
