Videos become a weapon in Wisconsin fight
The Politico ^ | Mar. 3, 2011 | Kenneth P. Vogel

Posted on 03/03/2011 7:01:59 AM PST by libstripper

Stung by allegations of incendiary, racist and homophobic rhetoric at tea party rallies last year, conservative activists with flipcams and camera phones have circulated at the union protests sprouting up across the country in hopes of catching violent or abusive behavior by their liberal adversaries.

The resulting photos and videos have ricocheted around the conservative blogosphere in recent days, prompting mounting outrage on the right.

Plase read this really snide, snarky article from the Politico. In spite of its rank bias it shows how vitally important it is for us to bring video cameras to every rally where there's likely to be opposition, carefully and clearly to photograph the enemy befire they begin to act, film their vile antics and assaults, and then use the videos and still pictures both to prosecute them and show the vile slugs they really are. Camcorders are really some of our best weapons in this battle to save America.

The major difference being that the video rants from the left only make it to right-wing sites that preach to the choir while the anti Tea Party videos make it to the CBS evening news.

Turnabout is fair play. Oh, Silly me, We’re talking about the unions, fair play doesn’t apply.

Tea partiers need to videotape these protesters and their offensive signs with their cell phones.

Then use those images in ads against dems in every state, in every city etc.

Highlight the offensiveness and then use that same offensiveness against them by exposing that offensiveness on the Internet and on national television from coast to coast.

When the reform bill passes in Wisconsin I hope Scott Brown and several republican Senators walk through the crowd with a giant Gavel to get their reaction on tape.

Don’t miss the college socialists involved in events in Madison in this video:

In particular, check out the worthless little punk who proclaims “I am a revolutionary socialist!” Yeah, whatever. Bring it, dweeb.

It is working and they aren't happy about it. They can't control their thugs. And while the left prides itself on being organized they view that as being able to turn out a bunch of malcontents. Not in their ability to control and direct those malcontents. It is the difference between a mob and an army. And their mob is very vulnerable to the Saul Alinsky tactics they have always used, but never expected to be used on them.

I’ve long said,

in order to defeat the left,
we must expose the left.

Neither their true ideology nor their tactics will be condoned by decent people anywhere.

They have simply been rather good at hiding their real selves and the media has been complicit in this matter.

“It is working and they aren’t happy about it.”

That’s the whole message of this article and why it was so worth posting.

“Stung by allegations of incendiary, racist and homophobic rhetoric at tea party rallies last year, conservative activists with flipcams and camera phones have circulated at the union protests sprouting up across the country in hopes of catching violent or abusive behavior by their liberal adversaries.”

An accurate version of this paragraph would read:

Unlike false allegations of incendiary, racist and homophobic rhetoric at tea party rallies last year, conservatives with flipcams and camera phones at the union protests sprouting up across the country have actually documented violent and abusive behavior by leftist thugs.

however youtube lists conservative videos as “controversial” or bans them.

meanwhile youtube has a homo-marriage logo on this front page.

Agreed, and i’ll go further: take TWO or more cameras, with the extra cameras covering the “main” cameraperson, to capture and abuse against the main cameraperson.

GOOD IDEA!! I especially recommend taking well focused, high definition still pictures of individuals in probable enemy concentrations before any action begins to eneble them to be identified later as the perpetrators of any assaults.

Wow! Truly amazing article! Written from the viewpoint that it’s all the fault of the evil conservatives with vidcams. That the disgusting behavior by the mobs was solely because they were “provoked” with conservatives wielding Flips. Like, for sure the mobs would have been well-behaved as choir boys without the evil conservative there, and none of the offensive signs would have been there either.

This has got to be the weakest excuse yet for the bad behavior of these mobs. Ken Vogel, just how stupid do you think the readers of Politico must be to swallow your pathetic tripe? Pretty stupid, apparently.

Dear Politico,

If you in the state run media were not so thoroughly biased, maybe you would be the ones actually reporting the truth about the activities of union thugs in Wisconsin. But as you have left it up to actual Americans to reveal facts about these bums, stop whining about their appearance on the air!!!!

Another interesting FACT about the “non-biased” Politico. It has YET to report on the MURDER of US airmen in Germany by the Allahu Akbar shouting Muslim!! Go to the Politico site and punch GERMANY in their bar. Nothing about the murder will appear.

That commiunst Phil Gaspar in your video is a dumbass. Actually, I think the folks that hired him are the real dumbassess.

At one point he mentions that capitalism is destroying the environment. Well, he is either a liar or not well-traveled because the worst pollution I’ve ever seen was in the former Warsaw Pact countries after the revolutions of the late 1990s.

Snarky Politico: Videos a Weapon in Wisconsin Fight

RUSH: I do want to mention this Politico story by Kenneth P. Vogel: "Videos a Weapon in Wisconsin Fight." Now, listen to the snarky way this story starts: "Stung by allegations of incendiary, racist and homophobic rhetoric at tea party rallies last year, conservative activists with flipcams and camera phones have circulated at the union protests sprouting up across the country in hopes of catching violent or abusive behavior by their liberal adversaries. "The resulting photos and videos have ricocheted around the conservative blogosphere in recent days, prompting mounting outrage on the right."

Well, how about that? I mean, this is just cheap. "Stung by allegations of incendiary, racist..." How about "stung by FALSE allegations"? How about "stung by lies"? How about "stung by misrepresentation and libel and slander"? "[C]onservative activists with flipcams" are now videotaping what happens where they are to disapprove the lies and the false allegations emanating from the mainstream press and Politico! How about that as a way to begin this story? "Stung by allegations"?

This makes it look like they're trying to defend themselves when what they're trying to do is prove they are being lied about. Remember the Democrat Party has set up websites trying to get more people to use camera phones to videotape Republicans doing bad things. This is something that the Democrat Party has been doing now for over a year. They actually have websites -- and a lot of these videos, we know, are faked. A lot of the pictures are Photoshopped. It's all made up. Nothing is real when you're talking about what the Democrats do, particularly their allegations about what the Tea Party happens to be doing.
