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 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.

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!

You've won today's "Gardasil-TTC-Border" Chew Bone Award.

That's an odd way of admitting that you have no valid argument concerning Flintlock's comment.
