Comments: Think Progress Caught Using Liberal-Manufactured Signs From "Crash the Tea Party" as Evidence of Tea Party Racism

Facts are not important to leftists, only perception is.
Repeat a lie often enough and the proletariat will believe it, or so their mantra goes (and for good reason).

The drones, like CA Rep. Brad Sherman, won't know the truth of all this because their state-run media keeps them ignorant. All the left cares about is that the drones believe them, but we have to keep exposing the truth and force the left to play defense.

Following Peg C, it is mportant to remember that these people could hear another POV if they chose. They know there are other internet sites that disagree with them. They know they are accused of bias. They have not the honesty to check.

Get ready for more of the same. Plants, shills and provocateurs will abound for the next few years, quietly and carefully orchestrated to de-legitimize anyone who stands in the way of the Democrats' agenda.

Once again, Think Progress demonstrates their unofficial motto - "two lies for the price of one!"

Posted by alanstorm at July 15, 2010 08:29 AM

I figured out think progress was just a group of brazen liars years ago. paid no attention to them since.

Libs/lefties(but I repeat myself) - if they ain't lying it's because they ain't talkin'.

Video now will not show as it has been marked private. Curious thing that.

Posted by Duffy at July 15, 2010 09:46 AM

Can't watch it because it's private?

Duh.

The "Wetback" comment in that disgusting video was made by protester on a video clip that was uploaded to YouTube in 2006, long before the Tea Party was conceived:

Never had much confidence in anything put out by ThinkProgress, but this pretty much destroys their credibility.

BTW, thanks for this post. Linked back at RK.

Sooo, how does all this shit just simply happen? At the same time...on tv, radio, internet...whit ehouse, NAACCCP...

Just a coincidence? Sure.

CNN has been using some of the video this morning in their Tea Party vs NAACP segments. Granted, it is parts that are genuine signs - I've seen the medicine man one at my local Tea Party - I get their point of Obamacare bringing us back to the days of medicine men, but the instant I saw it I knew it would be tagged as racist.
But the fact that CNN is using the same images seems to suggest a coordinated effort to attack.

Thank you for the linkage!

Morans. What are they trying to prove anyway, by documenting isolated cases? As if there isn't enough institutional racism in the Democratic party.

If the video was edited its only the same thing wingnuts did to ACORN with the pimp and hooker video that was all lies and deception like every republican across this country that has brought this country to ruin under the cold heartless leadership of the almight and greedy Bush/Cheney war mongers and the brainless sheep like DeMitt, Boehner and Cantor the rat.

Oh, for the love of everything holy, shut your stupid, ignorant mouth.

The lying, worthless, pathetic filth on your side has been exposed for what they are. Sit back, shut up, and deal with it.

You think your party had a mandate in 2006 or 2008? Well, they're going to have mandates in 2010 and 2012, too. . .that mandate?

GEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET

The new ThinkProgress video excludes the "Wetback" comment from 2006.

Does anyone have a copy of the original video for comparison?

Yup. There are NO racists in the "Tea Party" whatsoever. While every other similar sized group of diverse people will inevitably have a few cranks, the TP is an exception - it has absolutely NO oddballs or cranks or baggage. Not even 1. Not a single person in those millions has even 1 racist thought. Nope. Not at all.

Posted by libarbarian at July 15, 2010 02:56 PM

Now libs, we don't automatically assume all of you are flat out violent Stalinists and Maoists, although we should, when we see the lefties out and about with their little violent protests.

Or that since you support the hard left fascist Obama, you support reparations and the destruction of the middle class, you might not!

Maybe you aren't even a fascist in the mold of Hugo Chavez, a noted friend of Barry, or Che or Fidel, or even Bill Ayers, a noted Communist.

We won't assume that.

Well, why would any of them be in the Tea Party? They've already found a home in the New Black Panthers, the NAACP, the Democratic Party, the 0bama administration...

Er, what James MEANT to say was:

If the video was edited its only the same thing Leftards did to Bush with Dan Rather and TANG documents that were all lies and deception like every Democrat across this country that has brought this country to ruin under the cold heartless leadership of the almighty and racist 0bama/Wright hate mongers and the brainless sheep like Dodd, Biden, and Holder the Rat.

In a way these lefties might be doing us a favor. Personally, I dont want any racists at Tea Party rallies, plants or otherwise. By purposely planting phony racists at tea party rallies, and therefore forcing the regular tea partiers to find them and weed them out, the tea party will probably end up purging any real racists from their ranks as well.
Because of this, the Tea Party will end up with a much LOWER proportion of racists than most other organizations. What will become of the leftie racist charges then.

People don't assume the Democrat Party supports open gay sex in the streets because the Speaker of the House is from San Fran, where the gay community has big parades and which feature oral and anal sex in the open, in front of children.

No one would ever accuse the liberals of supporting that, even though they support something called gay rights and support Barney Frank greatly, a congressman who ran a gay brothel, probably with young boys, out of his apartment...

Of course no one would paint with that broad a brush!!! That would be so mean.

Posted by Rev. Dr. E. Buzz Miller at July 15, 2010 05:46 PM

No one assumed Barry Obama was a racist because he went to a completely insane church filled with insane racists for 20 years.

Posted by Rev. Dr. E. Buzz Miller at July 15, 2010 05:57 PM

Actually Rev, I do presume that, or rather it is no presumption but a simple admission of fact. If that is too tough tactically a more measured and venomous reply is, "What's wrong with being racist? Barack was in a racist cult for twenty years and everyone thought that was just skippy.... "

Posted by megapotamus at July 15, 2010 06:17 PM

Hey, why is this video blocked as "private"? Is that a new thing or was it always blocked?

Posted by Tea Party at Perrysburg at July 15, 2010 06:26 PM

To megapotamus:
Barak Obama can't be a racist. You can only be a racist if you are white. A spokesman for the NAACP said so on O'Reilly yesterday. If you are black and you say "I hate white people and want to kill them, and their children, and their babies" you are not a racist, you are merely a member of a downtrodden oppressed class expressing your frustration at white racism. A racist has to be a member of the oppressive power structure, ie: white.
Of course if you are a black conservative, you are an uncle tom who hates your own people.

Posted by richard40 at July 15, 2010 06:28 PM

The Gonz - no, no, no. Let James keep talking. Encourage him to keep talking. Let's get him out in front of cameras as much as possible. Look thoughtful, Gonz. Stroke your chin. Tell him what important points he's making and he really needs to quit his day job and go into full-time advocacy for Democratic causes.

Close your eyes and imagine, Gonz.

Posted by Assistant Village Idiot at July 15, 2010 07:37 PM

Well, what if you are half white, then you are half racist!

The white half of Barry was hating on Rev Liberace, the black half liked what he was groovin on.
