Lefty Group Tries to 'Infiltrate' Tea Parties with Offensive Signs - Will MSM Take the Bait?
http://newsbusters.org ^ | 04/11/2010 | Lachlan Markay

Posted on 04/11/2010 4:40:09 PM PDT by Para-Ord.45

This week, Americans of all political stripes will take to the streets -- so to speak -- to protest what they see as excessive and out of control government spending and intrusion into their daily lives. Among the many Tea Party protesters, however, will be individuals plotting to undermine the peaceful grassroots movement.

Blogger Glenn Reynolds spotted CrashTheTeaParty.org today, a website that claims to represent "a nationwide network of Democrats, Republicans and Independents who are all sick and tired of that loose affiliation of racists, homophobes and morons; who constitute the fake grassroots movement, which calls itself 'the Tea Party.'"

Their plan is to "infiltrate" Tea Party protests to create the false impression that protesters are racists by … being racists. That's right, they will bring with them offensive signs and give wildly offensive interviews to reporters, all with the intention of smearing a movement that wouldn't bring those signs or give those interviews themselves. It remains to be seen whether the mainstream media will take the bait.

Mark Tapscott dubs the leftist counter-movement "Saul Alinsky on steroids" for its "by any means necessary" approach to delegitimizing its political opponents. He notes that while the group claims to employ only non-violent means, that is an old leftist canard that is often discarded once non-violent means are exhausted and whatever leftist objective is on the agenda remains unaccomplished.

The Tea Party movement has been notably non-violent by the standards of any protest movement, but especially when compared with leftist anti-war and anti-capitalist groups (a lot of overlap there). It is not beyond the pale to expect that some crazies might try to shatter the near-perfect record of non-violent protest proudly worn on the Tea Party's collective sleeve by inciting or committing an act of violence.

"[S]ome on the Left in American politics," Tapscott wrote today at the Washington Examiner's Beltway Confidential blog, "are running a KGB-like 'false flag' operation to discredit the Tea Party. The Left couldn't sell the idea that Tea Partiers are just a bunch of racists, homophobes and morons, so the Left is infiltrating the Tea Party in order to pose as a bunch of racists, homophobes and morons."

I think it is possible that the MSM will ightly attribute any obscenities or racist comments to the left now. Announcing it so publicly was possibly helpful to the TEA party movemment.

This infiltration to make decent groups or people look bad is actually an Alinsky idea.

Alinsky suggested that to hurt the image of Nixon's defense secretary speaking at their college, the college student disrupters should dress up as ku klux klanners and cheer enthusiastically for Nixon's defense secretary.

This Alinsky fellow dedicated his book to Satan and he clearly follows an ends (hell on earth) justifies the means philosophy.

Keep cameras at the ready....this ploy has been used before and always back fires. The Tea Party is the party of the American People....a non-violent gathering of all races, all ages and all political stances. It can also be described as The Party of NO! NO to the current crop of politicians who are truly mendacious about their sworn oaths of office.

Throw the bums out along with the OBAMA MAFIA!

The Tea Party folks should pass out fliers with the infiltration info.

They should also carry signs that say, “This Tea Party protest infiltrated by leftists. You can spot them by their offensive signs and bad behavior.”

They should also carry signs that have adjustable arrows and say, “This person does not represent the Tea Party.”

This isn't going to work. Tea Partiers know who to look for. When you hear somebody yelling about overthrowing the government, secession, or making threats against minorities, then you know that person is a fraud. Also the idiot that's too enthusiastic, wrapped head to toe in patriotic gear.

There are a lot of veterans and older Americans steeped in common-sense and they can spot the BS a mile away.

Of course they’ll take the bait. The idiot journalists continue to talk about the “racial slurs” suffered by Cleaver and the rest of the communists on their walk to the Capitol that day.

Here is one idea to consider, because they will try to discredit us.

“Plants have already happened, just not organized ones. Regardless, perhaps organizers (or attendees) need to have a few signs that say “Liberal Plant, not a REAL TeaPartier” and be on the lookout for these double-secret spies. When one is found, then pull out your signs and stand next to the plant. No violence or physical actions, just isolate and embarrass.”

Just keep an eye out for Jason Levin:



the dork who set that website up, and who provided false, fraudulent information on the domain name registration, and who will probably try to infiltrate Tea Party events on the West coast, given that, as per the initial whois info for that website, he lives at 8575 SW Birch Street, Portland, OR (hey, it's public information, that he voluntarily provided, and therefore it's perfectly legitimate to disseminate it).

It remains to be seen whether the mainstream media will take the bait.

The writer of the article poses the wrong question.

The right question is whether or not the MSM will cover the beating and general abuse the fake members take when they're confronted by enraged members of the real tea partiers after their patience has been pushed beyond all resonable limits.

Of course there's YouTube and other outlets. Today anybody with a cell phone camera is a journalist.

I hate to break the news to these Alinsky Anamatronic Assholes, but the dems are still outta here in November, regardless of what they do when "infiltrating" the TEA party movement.

They've waited too late; the American people are not going to dump the democrats because of the TEA party movement, they're going to dump them for what they're doing to our country.

There are millions of us who - for whatever reason - cannot make it to the TEA party march, but who are still one of them, with the same spirit and determination as the rest.

These "mad hatters" will be found out, identified, and plastered all over the web and with viral emails...that's more coverage than the MSM could ever hope to get here in their waning days of miserable existence.

The fact is, the obama days are GONNA be over, no matter what; the left fringe lunatics in Congress are GONNA be sent home, one way or the other.

After that, the MSM is going to come crawling trying to get back in our living rooms again, but they have totally shot their wad and exposed themselves for the liberal lapdogs they are, and will not be welcomed.

So they can participate in the "mad hatter" experiment if they like, but their approval rating is already in the toilet. I don't think they would like two million TEA partiers inundating their few remaining advertisers with video and pictures of the chaos they are promoting against American Citizen exercising their Constitution rights in a peaceful manner.

People know what is going on, the days of pissing on our shoes and telling us "it's raining", are over. If these posers want to play silly games, they might get their own private copy of Alinky's book crammed up their butts and sent home.

I realize that Alinsky's book has become their "bible", but it's just a silly little book written by a ne'er do well on how to act out to piss off the adults.

I have the real Bible, and the Consitution, and I follow those and not the Alinsky book, or the koran.

So you backroom brawlers, if you can borrow enough money from mommy and daddy for a plane ticket, then come on down to D.C. and mix in...by all means, come on and try it.

Don't stay out past your curfew though.

This is the perfect opportunity for us to apply Alinsky on them.

Those rules are nonsectarian - they work for the left as well as the right.

Tea Party people — the real ones, should seek out these infiltrators and be prepared with signs with large arrows on them — pointed at them. And “Infiltrators” spelled in large leters.

Of corse, the MSM would never see them.

I will be attending a Tea Party on Thursday in Cincinnati. I told my husband earlier today that I will be taking a sign that says “Not one of Us”. It will be a rather large gathering since Hannity will be filming his show at the Tea Party. I will be surprised if there are not disruptors.

The fact is that, one, we are not racists, they are. And two, we are way more clever than they are.

We have an April 15 gathering here in St. Louis and I’m wondering if I should bring a “LaRuchain” sign with an arrow. They like to show up with the Ozero/Hitler mustache sign.

I am in Dayton, Ohio, right now. I've been to one Tea Party event yesterday, another this afternoon. I have seen no sign of any non-Tea Party people at either event.

Tomorrow I will go to four different school classes (as Benjamin Franklin). Those are controlled environments, however, some of the students may dislike Tea Party ideas, so we will see how that goes.

The main event here is Tuesday at a local arena. Everyone must have a ticket, but tickets are free. If there was to be infiltration it would most likely be there. I will report back what I see. Also, the press cannot lie about the attendance there, because everyone will have a ticket, and a seat.

The domain registrant’s real name and phone number has been posted all over the internet including FR and Canada Free Press for 2 days. Most of the posters on crashtheteaparty.org are not the libs and the lib posters as of last night weren’t organizing. Not that we all shouldn’t take cameras and infiltrator signs, but I think the plan of site owner might be blowing up in her face.
