...Beaverton Middle School teacher Jason Levin's group wants to infiltrate the Tea Party to discredit the organization. But since Levin's name has been associated with the "Crash the Tea Party" Web site, he has been harassed by people who say they belong to that group.

Levin told KATU-TV that his phone has been ringing around the clock and his answering machine is recording threats...

The media didn't even want to acknowledge the EXISTENCE of this organization and now they are already picking up his slurs that the Tea Party movement is "violent" (CTTP has included calls for members to deliberately make false "violent rhetoric" statements).

AP - American Pravda

He had his “infiltrators” call HIM with threats.

Maybe some of his STUDENTS.

When your entire goal is to disparage other people, expect the opposition to go to extremes in their own defense.

The actual news item is VERY brief. No link to the group’s website. No disclosure about how some of the CTTP members PLAN to dress up as neoNazis and storm the Tea Parties.

That's what this whole "crasher" movement is about anyway...to invoke reaction.

Short of defending ourselves against violence to our person or the group, we should react to them in any way. Their main weapon is the "parsing" of our words, and fabricating lies for their own benefit.

The bottom line is, we are NOT getting back on the buses and heading home. We will continue as planned to the TAX day protest in D.C. and it's going to take a LOT of "mad hatters" to stop us, or crash us.

Their words didn't stop us, so in true Alinsky fashion they are going to escalate the resistance...so be ready for it.

1. There is no such organization as “Crash the Tea Party”.

2. The leader of “Crash the Tea Party” is being threatened.

3. The racists filmed in Nazi uniforms at “Teabagger” events prove that this is a hate movement.

4. The Teabaggers are violating the privacy of Crash the Tea Party activists by videotaping them in Nazi regalia at political events, without permission, following them back to their Obama-bumper-sticker cars, and then by identifying them and publicizing their actions.

It makes a great narrative. It’s totally nonsensical, but MSM viewers don’t care.

The media has been covering up the existence of this HATE FILLED group.

Now that AP is acknowledging their existence, it is PURELY to show how THEY are being unfairly victimized. They openly called for HATE SPEECH to be spoken at the tea parties so as to slur the Tea Party movement as “racist”.

The media KNOWS THE SCORE.

We are living in an Orwellian nightmare. Only a Socialist would cover up such tactics and pretend that this man is credible, let alone HONORABLE.

Fred Phelps (Democrat) probably also gets threats. Why doesn’t his group ever make national headlines for being threatened? Because he’s a bigoted liberal stooge.

Also... When your entire goal is to disparage other people, expect more lies which is probably what we're getting in this story.

Give me a break. If there was pervasive Racism or any other hate wing in the tea party, trust me the 0bama administration would have instructed the automatons in the MSM go and to report on them a long time ago. Instead this loon has to manufacture false evidence.

Yesterday since the media was still silent about this announced tactic, I suggested having an information pack on Crash The Tea Party's website (their URL, their own statements of using deliberately misspelled signs, using racist rhetoric, urging tea partiers to speak of using violence...).

This would be for the sake of the “objective” media (which often but not always) goes to ridicule the rallies (Village Voice media is openly hostile to these patriot groups).

They may be able to express “shock” and “disbelief” that any group (like TCCP) would ever DELIBERATELY pose as tea partiers, but they would not be able to deny having ANY knowledge (with that handout of exposure in their hands).

Such foreknowledge makes the media complicit in the lies they spread.

Do we really expect to ever be able to get along with people like this? We have a growing number of people that want to use government to control the rest and either we are going to stop them or it’s going to keep escalating.

Common ground? give me a break. Are we supposed to compromise and let these radicals run just a percentage of our lives?

Caption for that photo from that article: “Jason Levin holds up a shirt he was going to wear to blend in with Tea Party members during the movement’s protest on Tax Day, but after his face was posted on the Internet he had to shelve his planned appearance.”

So he was going to go and he was going to wear that shirt. And then he chickened out because his photo got on the internet to ID who was calling for racism and violence at tea parties.

Now he poses for a photo on the news agency’s website and it is on the internet.

Even Pravda would have a hard time selling that lie.
