I was just reading what this troublemaker, Jason Levin, has said about his project to crash the tea parties. If, and say if, he gets anybody to bother with his scheme, they should be easy to spot. First of all because they do not have a clue what an average tea partier believes, thinks, or how one would act, so attempts to imitate should stick out like a sore thumb to the real protesters. Secondly, they are beginning from a false premise, believing themselves the lies they and others have told about the tea party rallies.
He has bought or more likely originated such descriptions as this: – crazy, “militia types living in cabins in the woods,” and taking as a fact the hoax that was staged in D. C. So they are lost from the beginning. They don’t know how to talk like a tea partier. In fact, a hater might be pretty uncomfortable to actually rub shoulders with a group of totally peaceful people, passionate about what they stand for, and unable to be deterred.
He says they will dress, talk, and carry signs like tea partiers. Think about it. I don’t believe he has a clue how a tea partier dresses or talks. And if the imposters do or say anything outlandish, they will be the only ones and easy to distinguish. And as I said, he is starting from a place that is not based in truth and reality. Bound to fail. Just picture Jason in the middle of this crowd here trying to act up. 🙂
The movement has been ignored and reviled by the MSM, but they’ll be out tomorrow in force, hoping against hope they will be able to ferret out some little something that fits their agenda of discrediting the tea party. One day – one day this corrupt media will be exposed and it’s not going to be pretty.
And the smears and slander coming from the highest officials in this government is almost beyond belief. They are at war with the people. Harry Reid, leader of the Senate, calling us evil mongers, and Ms. Pelosi’s derisions from her perch as the third person in line to the presidency. Government officials abusing the citizens. Ah, even the president has engaged in this behavior, attacking private citizens. Kind of makes you think of a leader like maybe Chavez or Castro, huh.
Below, what Levin has said his methods and goals are. They are certainly worried and intimidated by this powerful display of citizens execising their right to peacefully assemble. I guess they never expected it. I never expected it either. Never thought I would see the day when middle America would actually speak up. And it is a beautiful thing.
The scheme reads like a sequel to “Being John Malkovich”: Levin’s group of protesters plan to get in the heads of tea partiers at the Tax Day Tea Parties nationwide Thursday and manipulate them right out of relevance. They’ll dress like tea partiers, talk like tea partiers and carry signs like tea partiers. In fact, according to Levin they’ll be completely indistinguishable from tea partiers, except for one thing — they won’t be out-crazied by anyone.
“Our goal is that whenever a tea partier says ‘Barack Obama was not born in America,’ we’re going be right there next to them saying, ‘yeah, in fact he wasn’t born on Earth! He’s an alien!” Levin explained. He said that by making the tea parties sound like a gathering of crazy people — his group’s goal — the movement will lose its power.
“The lower the public opinion of them goes, the less coverage they’re going to get in the mainstream media,” Levin said when I asked him about the plan. “Then the GOP stops listening to them and they disperse and they go back to their militias and cabins in the woods.”
He emphasized that his group is non-violent, and not interested in “perpetuating racism, homophobia or misogyny.” Levin said that “members are free to do as they wish,” but if violence breaks out at a tea party rally on Thursday, or more epithets like the ones thrown around during the health care debate are heard, it won’t be because of his group.He explained the distinction to me this way: If you see someone wearing a Nazi uniform at a tea party, it could be one of his members. If you see some one wearing a Nazi uniform throwing a rock, it’s definitely not one of his members.
It’s pretty amusing the lengths to which they are willing to go. Worry. Worry. Worry. A little wringing of the hands. 🙂
Yes, it’s true. I’m proud to be a teabagger. 🙂 😉 Another h/t to Laree.
