Skip to comments.For Tea Party Detractors and Mainstream Media, Thursday Was An Epic Fail [FR mentioned]

A Navy Chief once told me that close only counts in three things: horseshoes, hand grenades and area-effect weapons. Now, when it comes down to how the mainstream media tried to portray members of the Tea Party they did not come close.
Unless you have been living under a rock for the past year, America has witnessed a popular uprising of people who have grown concerned by the massive power grab by President Obama and his allies in Congress, who have tried to cram activist government down our throats, while leaving the bills to our kids, grandkids and their childrens children.
When the grassroots efforts of the Tea Party Movement first took hold in the early days of the Obama regime, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi dismissed the movement as Astroturf, disheartened Republicans and racists, who could not accept a bi-racial man as President. The mainstream media and Democrat activists, taking their orders right from the Speakers office, tried to portray the political debate as being solely based on President Obamas race and not the policies of an overreaching government.
During the Health Care debate this same media, along with the Democrat leaders, tried and failed in their attempt to use civil rights icon John Lewis and other members of the Congressional Black Caucus as foils to induce a racial incident to smear the Tea Party Movement the citizen-reporter was there to bring you the real story and foil their plans.
The blogsphere was able to expose Democrat activists who sought to infiltrate the Tea Party Movement to incite incidents of violence, but once again these plans were foiled by blog sites such as Freerepublic.com, which exposed Oregon public school teacher Jason Levin the man behind Crashtheparty.org.

The short video clip in the story is priceless.
What I learned this week is that democrat thugs can break a woman’s leg in four places and break her jaw as well, and the media will ignore it and at the same time ask are tea parties violent and racist.
This sh!t needs to come to a screeching halt, RFN.
"PBS's Lehrer Badgers Obama from the Left: What About Banks' 'Huge Profits?'
By Matthew Balan | July 21, 2009 - 11:56
"PBS's Jim Lehrer ... urged the executive to "crack heads"
to get his health care plan passed, and inquired if "taxing the wealthy" was an option to fund it.
Lehrer later pressed Mr. Obama on the "huge profits" being made by "big Wall Street banks.""
“This sh!t needs to come to a screeching halt, RFN.”
The communists in the QueerMedia are not going to stop their propagandizing.
Lies and the politics of personal destruction, are stock and trade for the domestic and international Left.
What we need is true conservative alternatives, and I don’t mean Fox News.
Someone threw a molitov cocktail at the home of Jan Brewer’s top aide this week as well. That got minimal coverage even here at FR.
As the eldest of six children I would like to thank the obama administration for being the BIG BROTHER I never had.
I think my younger siblings would also like to thank him for his generosity towards us. We don’t think that we could have made it through the past year without HIM.
ALL PRAISE obama.
Enjoy this San Antonio Tea Party video:
Alinsky is so embarassed:
I totally believe that it will come to a halt. Democrats have totally mis-read the American people and totally underestimated them when they see things going against everything we believe in. Either the media gets on board with the people or they will go out of business. I think that eventually, their stock holders will abandon the media, unless they want to loose everything. We see this happening with Democrat voters already. The voters are beginning to see what’s really going on.
Slick Willies’ Comment
...But I think that all you have to do is to read the paper every day to see how many there are who are deeply, deeply troubled. We know, now, that there are people involved in groups — these ‘hatriot’ groups, the Oath Keepers, the Three Percenters, the others — 99 percent of them will never do anything they shouldn’t do. But there are people who advocate violence and anticipate violence.
One of these guys the other day said that all politics is just a prelude to the ultimate and inevitable civil war. You know, I’m a southerner. I know what happened. We were still paying for that 100 years later when I was a kid growing up, in ways large and small. It doesn’t take many people to take something like that seriously. So I don’t want the whole story of this retrospective just to be about this, and to try to turn everything into politics...
You said it. Here's a shout out to Darryl Postell from your fellow Americans. Way to expose the racist libtard for what she was.
The author of the article also had a great quote at the end:
“Nowhere can the Epic Fail of the attempt to smear Americans can be seen more clearly than in the video above of Kelly ODonnell, asking Darryl Postell whether he felt comfortable among his fellow Americans. I dont know about Darryl, but I as a Black man feel more comfortable among Tea Party members than the whole nightly lineup at MSNBC.”
Battle lines have been drawn, by them. Its time for Americans to wake up and see this but too many people just want to look on the bright side. They will keep looking on the bright side until they are being marched toward an internment camp by these thugs. Alinsky understood human nature very well.
“These are my people - Americans.”
— Darryl Postell
The democrats are desperately trying to stir us into foolish reaction but you’re absolutely correct about how we just have to keep moving forward.
This is the first I have heard of this, and I read FR every day, as well as Drudge, but FOX not so much anymore.
Mafia owned democrat union thugs can’t stop we the people movement,they operate like it’s the 1930’s.
