Posted on 02/16/2013 7:44:28 AM PST by Libloather
Al 'Jazeera' Gore took to the Huffington Post on Valentine's Day to attack the Tea Party as well as the Koch brothers.
Not surprisingly, his "False Spontaneity of the Tea Party" consisted of his practically patented brand of factually-challenged left-wing propaganda:
A new study by the National Cancer Institute of the National Institute of Medicine reveals that the Tea Party Movement was planned over a decade ago by groups with ties to the tobacco and fossil fuel industries. The movement was not a spontaneous populist uprising, but rather a long-term strategy to promote the anti-science, anti-government agenda of powerful corporate interests.

Let’s see, a decade ago Bush 43 was POTUS. He was closely tied to the oil industry yet these evil men were anticipating the election six years out of a money grabbing Enviro/Marxist. They had already conditioned Rick Santelli to use the phrase Tea Party which immediately snapped millions of other similarly programmed hypno drones to take to the streets and protest for turning everything over to Exxon, oh wait. Weren’t they marching for smaller govt, lower taxes, less govt intrusion and greater inmdividual liberty. Sounds like the guys in the lab got the conditioning wrong.
(Maybe this is why gores wife chose mental illness as her pet cause? Did she see this coming?)
Gore accusing someone else of false spontaneity? The guy with the “everyman” beige polo shirt? The guy who nearly fractured his wife’s back in a “spontaneous” liplock?
Such "progressives" also reveal their arrogant unwillingness to acknowledge that ordinary citizens, armed with computers, now have begun to read the wisdom writings of earlier centuries, speeches and documents of America's Revolutionary Period (including the ideas which prompted the original "Tea Party"), and that the so-called "progressive" decades-long effort to censor and eliminate those writings from textbooks and public discourse have failed.
Americans are again beginning to assert the enduring ideas and principles underlying their liberty, which means that Gore, Obama, the Clintons, and the academic community which spawned them, are losing the battle over the hearts and minds of American citizens.
Yes, a "populist" movement based on the "The Unique Idea" underlying our Constitution is possible and may be under way at the moment.
Dr. Carson's articulation of ideas of freedom at the National Prayer Breakfast has tapped into the awareness already expressing itself, and like seeds planted in fertile ground, they may begin to blossom into another great ideas revolution.
If Divine Providence enlightened the 1776 "American mind" (Jefferson's description), using the means then available, then perhaps that same Divine Providence is at work in the technology of 2013, revealing what was hidden, shedding light in dark places, and "enlightening" the minds of individuals as to their Creator-endowed, therefore unalienable, rights.
Perhaps the Taxed Enough Already citizens read and came to understand the following:
"...there have always been those who wish to enlarge the powers of the General Government. There is but one safe rule...confine (it) within the sphere of its appropriate duties. It has no power to raise a revenue or impose taxes except for the purposes enumerated in the Constitution....Every attempt to exercise power beyond these limits should be promptly and firmly opposed." - Andrew Jackson's Valedictory
"...experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms (of government), those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny; and it is believed that the most effectual means of preventing this would be, to illuminate...the minds of the people...to give them knowledge of those facts, which history exhibiteth. History, by apprizing them of the past, will enable them to judge of the future...it will qualify them as judges of the actions and designs of men; it will enable them to know ambition under every disguise it may assume; and knowing it, to defeat its views...." - Jefferson's Bill for the more general diffusion of knowledge for Virginia
"Although all men are born free, slavery has been the general lot of the human race. Ignorant--they have been cheated; asleep--they have been surprised; divided--the yoke has been forced upon them. But what is the lesson?...the people ought to be enlightened, to be awakened, to be united, that after establishing a government they should watch over it....It is universally admitted that a well-instructed people alone can be permanently free." - James Madison
Finally, from America's first President:
"The foundation of our Empire was not laid in the gloomy age of Ignorance and Superstition, but at an Epoch when the rights of mankind were better understood and more clearly defined, than at any former period. . . ." - George Washington, Circular to the States, June 8, 1783
" The foundations of our national policy will be laid in the pure and immutable principles of private morality, and the preeminence of free government be exemplified by all the attributes which can win the affections of its citizens, and command the respect of the world." - George Washington, First Inaugural Address, April 30, 1789
Al Gore - Investment Partner, Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers For the life of me, why this position is so actively ignored is beyond me.
Has anyone done a study that has to do with the democrat party co-opting the agenda of the communist party?
That was after they'd already embraced burning "naughty records" (to take the national stage with television hearings timed for the 1988 election) and then later whored themselves out to celebrate the misogynist rappers and slutty pop singers whom they needed endorsements from in the 1992, 1996, and 2000 elections.
