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 weekends 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.
Heres 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.
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.
Perry looks very good at this point in time.
The Francis Marion Hotel, where the gathering is taking place, is named for Revolutionary War hero Francis Marion, the "Swamp Fox."

LOTS more illegal Mehhhikkans.

What could POSSIBLY go wrong with this guy?
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!"
You've won today's "Gardasil-TTC-Border" Chew Bone Award.
Sooooo, who do you reccomend?
See now you’re obviously a commie for speaking out against St Rick. LOL
The koolaid has been mixed extra strong and served early this election cycle.
Anita and Rick Perry -- dove hunting
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.
Thank yor for that great information bert.
How in the world is the Charleston City Paper calling everyone at FR commies?

>> 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”.
That was one of the first — I believe it’s a PAC video — and it’s great.
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 Carolinas 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.
You take the award for Alinsky tactics today.
Hey look, your dixie cup is low. Better fill it up with Perry aid and slug it down. You’ve got a busy day of propoganda spewing ahead.
LOL -- So much healthier than fried butter on a stick! (Although mixed together..... ;)

Texas Gov. Rick Perry Speaks to Republican Leadership Conference - June 18, 2011
“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.
A critic based on what I know, yep. Uninformed on all the details, yep. So I’ll get informed. Thanx
Yep I’m smelling the same odorous stench of the McCainiac crowd from 2007-present and beyond.
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.
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.
>>>The letter concludes, I respectfully request that the U.S. Department of Justice take immediate steps to investigate, enjoin and bring to justice all parties found to be in violation of U.S. law by their participation in these efforts. Perry voices concern to feds about anti-Israel flotillas

So, would you like to address my question or just post more glowing reviews of your man?
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.
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.
Can you explain how something is “mandatory” when you can opt-out?
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!
That's an odd way of admitting that you have no valid argument concerning Flintlock's comment.
