I just got this in on the Associated Press wire via Twitter. The Attorney Generals in thirteen states have filed lawsuits against the Federal government on the grounds that the healthcare takeover by the government is unconstitutional. One of the Attorney Generals is a Democrat. Here’s the article:
I can’t post it any larger, so if you can’t see what it says, it reads, “Warning If Brown Can’t Stop It A Browning Can.” Beside it was the text, “Sign the petition calling on Congressional Republicans to denounce bigoted Tea Party attacks.“
I clicked on the ad to see what kind of nut job was advocating murder, and it took me to the DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSIONAL CAMPAIGN COMMITTEE website. This is a clickable link that will take you to the same place on their website to which the Facebook ad takes you. The text there reads, “After being addressed by Republican Leader John Boehner and Rep. Joe “You Lie” Wilson, Tea Party extremists launched a series of bigoted attacks at House Democrats. Reports from the protest include claims of shouting disgusting racial epithets at civil rights hero Rep. John Lewis and terrible homophobic derogatory language at Rep. Barney Frank — as well as going so far to actually spit on a member of Congress. Call on Congressional Republicans to denounce tea party extremists’ bigoted attacks.”
Now while I absolutely do not condone racism, racial slurs, any similar personal attacks, and certainly not spitting on any of our elected officials, the DCCC has really crossed the line on this one. There is absolutely no way anyone can justify the DCCC’s ad. A side note here: apparently it was OK for our troops to get spit on as they returned home from Vietnam. You never heard any condemnation from the press nor do I remember any politician of the day publicly condemning it.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch. Lest you think that the DCCC is an independent organization, and the Democrats do not have anything to do with this, click HERE to go to the DCCC’s “About Us” page. The opening statement is, “The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is the official campaign arm of the Democrats in the House.” As you read on, you will see that in 2008, Speaker Pelosi announced that Representative Chris Van Hollen, D-Maryland, would be chairman of the DCCC, and Assistant to the Speaker for the 2009-10 election cycle. Official enough for you?
There’s a movement underway that reportedly started on Facebook. It is an obvious attempt at countering the Tea Party Movement although they are trying to attach themselves to the Tea Party Movement. They call themselves the COFFEE PARTY. When I noticed several people on my Facebook friends list who are conservatives listed as “liking” their Facebook page, I felt compelled to warn fellow conservatives about this very deceptive group.
The left has found out that direct opposition to the Tea Party Movement along with the very “tolerant” name-calling that includes some pornographic references has not worked. The Tea Party Movement has continued to grow rapidly as the majority of Americans are fed up with big government and the Washington system. The Tea Party Movement has transcended political ideologies, party affiliations, and all walks of life. The Republicans thought they saw a huge political opportunity and tried to attach themselves to it. The Tea Party, or rather, fellow citizens more or less told them, “Uh, no, some of y’all need to go too.”
In order to see through the Coffee Party movement, let’s start with the founder, Annabel Park. First, Ms. Park actively campaigned for Barack Obama in 2008. She was one of the founders of the YouTube channel UNITED FOR OBAMA. That alone seems to be incongruous with the statement Ms. Park made to the New York Times, “We’re not the opposite of the Tea Party . . .” Since Obama was the most radically left of all the Senators, including Ted Kennedy, just the fact she is an ardent Obama supporter would in and of itself indicate she opposes the Tea Party.
Next, let’s look at their website and see for what they stand. When the INFO tab is clicked, the first thing that is noticed is that many of the articles’ referenced are from MEDIA MATTERS, a radically left political website. The Coffee Party supports government takeover of the nation’s healthcare system, legalization of illegal immigrants already in the U.S., sides with the handful of scientists who espouse climate change (some of whom have been discredited for suspected tampering with climate data to “prove” global warming), believes the Democrats and the Obama administration have not been fiscally irresponsible, supports Obama’s policies on terrorism, and attacks Sarah Palin.
“We’re not the opposite of the Tea Party,” Ms. Park told the New York times. “We’re a different model of civic participation, but in the end we may want some of the same things.”
“We need to roll up our sleeves, put our heads together and work it out.”
Sounds good, doesn’t it? Sounds like she wants to bring liberals and conservatives together to bring about positive change in Washington, doesn’t it? Well, if you’re still not convinced, check out some of Ms. Park’s Twitter tweets:
Doesn’t sound like the coffee wants to join with the tea to me.
This should enrage black people everywhere. Saying that he forgot he was black insinuates very strongly that the president performed as well as a white president. How else can this be interpreted? What difference does it make if President Obama were white, black, or whatever? It has absolutely nothing to do with anything. Not only did Matthews make a huge blunder here, but, instead of letting it go and hoping it would slip under the radar, he goes on and on along racial lines bringing more attention to it.
