MADISON, Wisconsin (Reuters) - Activists with the conservative Tea Party movement say they owe a lot to their schooling in left-wing community organizing tactics for the historic Republican victory over the Democrats and their union allies in the Wisconsin recall election

Good!!!! To defeat the swamp creatures you`ve got to first wade into the swamps!
Fine with me... I hope they did exactly as the article states. The lefturds never saw coming the harrowing development of the good guys adapting Alinsky for their benefit.
Hopefully that`s being replicated across the country.
And the most beautiful part of all this is... Obama and the dems never knew this could come to pass.
The leftist Alinskyist Rooters again coming out with a venus-fly-trap article.
Nowhere does it say that the right used OWS tactics at the Wisconsin state house, nowhere does it say the right daily spit out it’s rigid talking points, nowhere does it say they used strong-arm thug tactics. It mainly used the “Walker Outspends” meme, all the while not including PAC money, and of course not including all the money that would be helping Barrett if the DNC did not pull out.
This article is a venus-fly-trap, with a hidden agenda for the Fall - a thin-veiled attempt to try to win back the indies for zer0, by saying “see looky here, we’re all thugs now”.
No, the tea party tactics are NOT thug/Alinsky tactics. It’s has been, it is, and it should be a BIG differentiator.
“Conservatives used tactics of the Left in Wisconsin win???”
You mean they filled concentration camps and mass graves with innocent people?
Should of heard about that.
I agree Conservatives need to fight Liberals aggressively, but I hope we don’t lose our souls, decency or morality in the process. We can’t simply become like them...
This Rooters article is nothing more than the usual Projection method used by the left - accuse the right of doing what they do, so as to mask or make light of the method.
Not only that, but the article fails to even mention the core issues of the recall - voters do NOT want their state’s to enter financial armeggedan. Voters do NOT want their politicians rejecting the results of an election, to just vote again midterm, wasting millions of dollars in effort and their time. A recall like this is just a public version of the Chicago back-room count, count and count again until you get the result you seek.
where was the outrage when corzine spent a bazzilion dollars to win. or how about O’s near billion dollars in 2008 - much from donation amounts under the radar?
With all the ads and BS spread on TV and in the papers, I was not moved. It was when the teachers and imported protestors stormed and occupied our state capitol that I made my decision to vote for Walker. (Well, to be truthful, I would have voted for him anyway).
NOW, if we could only get the Girly-Guy, Republi-Tard, WUSSES in Congress to wake up, grow a pair and start using the same tactics (no more...no less) that their Far Left, Lib brethren (and Sistahs) have been using for decades and fight fire with fire, we might just reclaim our Constitutional Republic....
Alas, after 68 years of wishing, hoping and praying, I don't kid myself that I will live to see that day.
Sad, very sad!!!
Oh, you`re absolutely right! The Tea Party and OWS thugs couldn`t be more different. But what I took away from it was the TP employed certain tactics they could use, such as the face-to-face, GOTV efforts, the mechanics of which have been up `til now used mainly by the community organizers.
Look what happened last week in Boston.. Axelrod was thrown back on his ass in shock when Romney backers challenged him with chants, drowning him out. I see this as huge, because it`s a first. It signals the GOP is finally growing a pair. The dems are getting payback at long last.
I personally don`t care if Reuters credits Alinsky or not for the WI result. Point is.. the good guys broke through the GOTV code there, and hopefully that may unlock long-held dem territory nationwide.
They don`t have to go to that extent.. the article implies the TP used some of the same community organizing GOTV practices. They simply used some of the techniques the dems have used for years.
The last thing the leftist communists want people to know is that the right used Tea Party tactics to squash them.
The Left was all for community organizing before they were against community organizing.
This is OT, but Wisconsin is fiscally sound. I know that because when I turned in my State Income tax return, they sent me my refund in THREE days. I have never had it back so fast. Three weeks, or three months, under Doyle. But THREE days made me sit up and take notice.
Scott Walker is my hero.
I think they had an idea the Tea folks might have an influence in politics in this country. That's why they have been trying to vilify us for the last couple of years. Now as the movement becomes more influential we have to be aware that the entrenched GOPe will be looking to marginalize the Tea Party as well.
