Watch out for pinkos at the RedState Gathering
Charleston City Paper ^ | August 12, 2011 | Paul Bowers

Posted on 08/13/2011 3:26:38 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

The Charleston Tea Party forwarded along a message this morning from Erick Erickson, managing editor of conservative news blog RedState.com. In it, Erickson warns attendees of this weekend’s TeaPartyPalooza — er, RedState Gathering — to be on the lookout for sneaky liberals.

The conference, which will feature talks from Gov. Nikki Haley and Texas Gov. Rick Perry at the Francis Marion Hotel in Charleston, has been generating a lot of buzz since it was revealed that Perry would announce his bid for the 2012 presidency during his speech. A recent Zogby poll placed Perry at the front of the GOP pack, even before he was officially a contender.

Here’s what Erickson had to say:

Please be aware that, given the news relating to Gov. Perry, there will be a large media presence. Likewise, I suspect there will be a few lefty activists posing as reporters trying to get Gathering attendees to either say something embarrassing or something that can be edited into something embarrassing. Please use your best judgment at the event when engaged by others. Should you have any problems while there, please let me or one of the RedState contributors know about it.

So, if you go, be careful what you say to people carrying cameras. We're shifty sons of guns.


TOPICS: Crime/Corruption; Extended News; Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: gopprimary; redstate; rickperry; teaparty
Gov. Rick Perry will feel right at home at the RedState gathering in Charleston, South Carolina, a community and a state strongly associated with religion, agriculture and the military – and JOBS will resonate with everyone. This message from Erick Erickson and the Charleston Tea Party should be taken to heart, as it is well known that Gov. Rick Perry prefers to bypass the mainstream media and use the blogosphere.

The buzzing bees of anti-Perry activists with their "Gardasil-TTC-Border" mantra will only continue to highlight and enhance a Gov. Rick Perry nomination as truth of his work here in Texas gains national exposure. Rick Perry as governor, used all resources at his disposal in an attempt to make a cancer vaccine available to Texas children. The governor is battling environmentalist activists in his push for more transportation infrastructure in a state exploding with commerce and population. And using state resources, Gov. Rick Perry (denied the necessary and requested federal help needed by a border state to deal with the consequences of current federal inaction, in addition to shouldering the continued fallout from past federal actions) works to hold the line on the 1250 mile section of the U.S. border between Texas and Mexico, our neighbor to the south.

Yes - he certainly does.

The Francis Marion Hotel, where the gathering is taking place, is named for Revolutionary War hero Francis Marion, the "Swamp Fox."

This is how you "create" jobs -- you create an environment that is friendly to employers!

Rick Perry:

FIRST: "Don't spend all the money!"

SECOND: "Have a fair and predictable tax and regulatory policy!"

THIRD: "Have a legal system that doesn't allow for over suing and make loser pay!"

Calling everyone at FR a commie seems like a particularly stupid tactic since the issues listed cover pretty much the entire FR community.

The great white Obama also seems to be using the same tactic of Obama in attempting to control the message.

It should be remembered that a Salon reporter posing as a FReeper infiltrated a Freeper meeting hosted by the South Carolina Chapter of the Free Republic Network in Charleston some years back.

I think this is an example of what America will see on TV during the event. One of the videos include Rick Perry with Sarah Palin! All I can say is... Romney might as well quit now, He has no chance against this man, Rick Perry.

>> Calling everyone at FR a commie seems like a particularly stupid tactic

It certainly would be.

On the other hand, I searched the page, and discovered the following facts:

1) The first and second uses of the word “commie” in the thread are found in *your* posts

2) The only other use of the word “commie” so far is from a poster *responding* to, and questioning, your use of the term “commie”.

Just sayin’...

True. Using Alinksy tactics isn't reserved for leftists, apparently. This sudden streak of support Perry or else has the same odorous stench of the McCainiac crowd from 2007-2008.

“So, if you go, be careful what you say to people carrying cameras. We’re shifty sons of guns.”

Liberals have a *look* that is almost always noticeable. Ne alert. Know that every wordand nuance is going to be taken out of context by somebody. It’s just a shame we have to even consider this crap.

Feed Perry collards.

Collard greens, the food of cavemen, Roman Pretorian guards, explorers, southern rebels and slaves, has been named South Carolina’s official leafy vegetable by the state legislature.

This dish can be found in nearly every “all-you-can-eat” restaurant that populates the deep south.

“Rick Perry as governor, used all resources at his disposal in an attempt to make a cancer vaccine available to Texas children.”

This bugged the h3ll out of me. Obvious that he is for sale to some special interest groups, and that in some part of his brain there is the tendency of state-ism.

What's obvious is, you didn't learn all the facts. You're an uninformed critic.

But Perry does have better hair than John Friggin Kerry or Mitt Flipper Romney....or even that other TX BS artist, George ROP Bush! A pox on both GOP/DNC, neither worth warm spit.

Perry, shown here with Lewis in the background, was elected to the Texas House of Representatives in 1984. He came to be known as one of the "Pit Bulls," members who sat in the lower pit of the House Appropriations Committee and bitterly fought spending increases. - PHOTO: The Texas Tribune/Courtesy of Texas State Library and Archives Commission

Did you know McCain had a hard time raising money in Texas in 2008?

Rudy out-raised McCain because a lot of Texans sat on their wallets or opened them up to Giuliani.

This is an interesting article about where Texas' campaign money and support was going in '08. Things just aren't back and white. Texas donors on fence for 2008 election

I love Pugs! Have two of them. Are you on Perry’s campaign staff or what? Your glowing reviews and constant re-posting of locked and loaded boilerplate pro-Perry material are a bit repetitive. It goes way beyond Gardasil-TTC-Border issues. I am a native Texan. I was four feet from Perry when he spoke at the first Arlington TEA Party gathering, manning the P/A system. Is he better than Obama? Yes. Is he a Conservative? Well, it depends on the time, place and audience. I won’t list all the troubling questions about Perry, but please tell me what you know about the Texas Franchise Tax.

CW bless you,

I did 4 hours of research. Rick Perry mandating a vaccine that was out for less than a year. It was called into question by endless agencies, I had one of the creators quoted about the negatives of the drug, but the links are gone,(sucks to loose your paycheck). I emailed her, as her comments on the drug are on the web, will hopefully hear from hear yes or no as she is university professor, wont cross my fingers though.

His relation to special interests- in this case are very long.

http://www.kbtx.com/home/headlines/5546651.html

I didn’t go that long into the story but. A statist Yes, Mandatory= absolute government power, yes he was over turned. But Still......wtf ???????

Special interests, yup I’m not informed. It don’t count if there in your own bed, I get it!

More info on the mandatory drug that Perry approved, it has no bad side effects if you can’t read, and your children are the guinea pigs.

Tell me when the opt out was an option.... It wasn’t at all when he gave his order!

Not till everyone found out and the other legislative branches threatened him, and then overturned his decree.

Hey then the opt out was really good!
