The Pink Flamingo has been very outspoken detailing links between the CofCC, Stormfront, and the tea parties, especially in South Carolina. For years I’ve been telling you that there is a very nasty link between John Tanton’s groups, Numbers USA, Roy Beck, the CofCC, and the Tea Parties.
Revolutions are not fun things. In the past, people died, tens of thousands of people in France during the French Revolution and as many in the UK during the Civil War. I know, it’s a history thing and the tea parties and their libertarian over-lords don’t know much about history, but I might like to suggest that you do.
I don’t like extremists and true believers of any ilk. They are frightening because they refuse to listen to reason and logic.
The Pink Flamingo sees very little difference in the types of people who are “occupying” Wall Street and the “average” tea partier. I’m not talking about “normal” tea partiers (if there are any) who are just trying to vent their frustrations. No, I’m talking about the weirdos, Neos, White Supremacists, CofCC, John Birchers, and hard core anti-immigration freaks. They are NO DIFFERENT from the worst of the worst, like Rosanne Barr, anarchists, and all the other little lovelies.
Just look at headlines, people, and the like. What is even more funner is that Ron Paul, uber libertarian is in agreement with some of the stop up Wall Street folks. Perhaps we might want to pronounce them the ultimate libertarians – no rules, no right, just doing what you want.
They are all the same – just a different outside wrapper.
If you listen to the right, the wall street protest is evil because George Soros’ money is involved. Golly gee, it seems like just the other day, the left said the same thing about the tea parties and the Kochs. From a study that the NY Magazine has done, asking a few questions, the occupants are even more ignorant that the tea partiers.
The two groups do have one thing in common:
Rosanne Barr is dangerous. People like her have been known, over the centuries, to get a heck of a lot of innocent people killed with their vile hatred.
“…”Part of my platform is, of course, the guilty must be punished and that we no longer let our children see their guilty leaders getting away with murder. Because it teaches children, you know, that they don’t have to have any morals as long as they have guns and are bullies and I don’t think that’s a good message,” Barr told Russia Today (RT).
“I do say that I am in favor of the return of the guillotine and that is for the worst of the worst of the guilty.
“I first would allow the guilty bankers to pay, you know, the ability to pay back anything over $100 million [of] personal wealth because I believe in a maximum wage of $100 million. And if they are unable to live on that amount of that amount then they should, you know, go to the reeducation camps and if that doesn’t help, then being beheaded,” Barr said with a straight face…”
The Wall Street Protest is allegedly failing.
“...Tea Party Nation founder Judson Phillips agreed. “I see very little in the way of commonalities between the two groups,” Phillips told TheDC. “The Occupy Wall Street protesters act mostly as a mob, without any real coherent explanation of their grievances.”
“The protesters are upset about bailouts but they want to see that money used on more social programs, where the tea party objects to the government bailing out businesses,” Phillips explained. “The tea party thinks that money should go back to the people as tax refunds or should never be taxed in the first place.”
According to Phillips, “The ultimate goal of the tea party is a reduction in the size of government and a return to constitutional bounds. The goal of these people is ultimately a socialist revolution.”
Tea Party Express co-founder Sal Russo, however, offered a more nuanced assessment of the protesters.
The tea party movement, according to Russo, can trace its roots to the Ross Perot campaign of the early 1990s, which he said contained “a strong dose of opposition to crony capitalism.”…”
“…The “Occupy Wall Street” movement has taken over a park in Manhattan’s financial district and turned it into a revolutionary camp. Hundreds of young people chant slogans against “banksters” or corporate tycoons. Occasionally, a few even pull off their clothes, which always draws news cameras.
“Occupy Wall Street” was initially treated as a joke, but after a couple of weeks it’s gaining traction. The crowds are still tiny by protest standards — mostly in the hundreds, swelling during periodic marches — but similar occupations are bubbling up in Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Washington. David Paterson, the former New York governor, dropped by, and labor unions are lending increasing support.
I tweeted that the protest reminded me a bit of Tahrir Square in Cairo, and that raised eyebrows. True, no bullets are whizzing around, and the movement won’t unseat any dictators. But there is the same cohort of alienated young people, and the same savvy use of Twitter and other social media to recruit more participants. Most of all, there’s a similar tide of youthful frustration with a political and economic system that protesters regard as broken, corrupt, unresponsive and unaccountable.
“This was absolutely inspired by Tahrir Square, by the Arab Spring movement,” said Tyler Combelic, 27, a Web designer from Brooklyn who is a spokesman for the occupiers. “Enough is enough!”
The protesters are dazzling in their Internet skills, and impressive in their organization. The square is divided into a reception area, a media zone, a medical clinic, a library and a cafeteria. The protesters’ Web site includes links allowing supporters anywhere in the world to go online and order pizzas (vegan preferred) from a local pizzeria that delivers them to the square…”
“…“There isn’t an unlimited pool of cash in the conservative movement, and my concern is that some of these big national groups are sucking up money that could otherwise go to the local tea party leaders who are the ones really making things happen on the ground,” said Ned Ryun, president of American Majority, a Washington area non-profit group that helps local tea party leaders set up groups.
American Majority, which itself has seen its fundraising soar from $1 million when it was established in 2008 to $3.3 million last year, expects that it and its affiliate American Majority Action will have handed out a total of $500,000 in grants to local tea party groups by the end of the year.
Some local tea party organizers privately told POLITICO that national groups have requested their member lists to send fundraising pitches. Others grumbled that the mega-groups’ spending seems more geared towards supporting Washington’s political industry than boosting the grassroots.
POLITICO’s analysis of disclosures filed with the Internal Revenue Service and Federal Election Commission found that the large groups spend big bucks on salaries, like the $500,000 that Americans for Prosperity paid its chairman Dick Armey, endorsements from radio hosts like Glenn Beck and Mark Levin and speaking fees to movement heroes like Sarah Palin and Samuel “Joe the Plumber” Wurzelbacher,not to mention millions more on consultants and ad buys….”
The tea parties are a creation of FOX news. The other day, a fascinating little exchange took place during the occupy wall street protest.
“…LaGreca told the Fox reporter, who isn’t identified, that the Occupy Wall Street protests are a “spontaneous movement” — one he wouldn’t like to see end.
But the conversation quickly turned critical of Fox News. “We find we can’t get conversations on the Department of Justice’s ongoing investigation of News Corporation, for which you are an employee,” he said. “But we can certainly ask questions like, you know, why are the poor engaging in class warfare. Now after 30 years of having our living standards decrease while the wealthiest 1 percent have had it better than ever, I think it’s time for, maybe, I don’t know, some participation in our democracy that isn’t funded by news cameras and gentlemen such as yourself.”
The Pink Flamingo has been telling you, for quit some time, that the tea parties were an invention of FOX. The recent Howard Kurtz Newsweek piece basically confirms it. They are manipulating the GOP and our country.
Ben Smith wrote:
“...And while Kurtz basically buys Fox’s case that it’s a business — one whose programming is lucrative and successful — rather than a political operation, and while that’s one reasonable way to see the network, I’ve never heard the head of another news outlet chat about the advice he gives presidential candidates, and the ways in which he drives his policy views onto the air…”
“...Watching on The Five as Greg Gutfeld and Andrea Tantaros rush to counter anything negative Bob Beckel might say about the Tea Party, one can’t help but think of the adults in that episode. I keep waiting for them to turn and start talking to the camera: “Don’t listen to him, Tea Party. It’s a good thing you did! A very good thing! We shouldn’t raise taxes for anybody at all no matter how broke the nation is! You’re such a clever party!”
Conservatives know how powerful the Tea Party is and they seem terrified to say anything the slightest bit bad about them. They’re treating the party just like an infinitely powerful child, walking on eggshells at all times (quickly denouncing McCain was the Tea Party version of not letting that guy play his Perry Como record because “Anthony doesn’t like singing”). The thinking seems to be that any critique, no matter how benign, could send the Tea Party into a rage, quickly leading to death. The 2012 presidential election version of death that is….”
In fact, Roger Ailes may be pulling the plug on the tea parties.
Politicus USA is a liberal site. I find the commentary on Beck’s opinion of the wall street occupiers a bit humorous.
“…Beck played a clip from Al Sharpton’s MSNBC show, and then said, “These people are not interested in creative destruction. They are only interested in destruction. That leads to gas chambers. That leads to guillotines. That leads to millions dead. That leads to Mao. That leads to totalitarianism, every single time.”
Glenn Beck continued by going into one of his elaborate collapse of America conspiracy theories where banks were closed, stores were looted, and eventually the Occupy Wall Street protesters broke into his listeners homes because they have more than the protesters.
Beck’s lies are the sort of fear based rhetoric that the Occupy Wall Street protesters are going to be up against. People like Glenn Beck can’t defend and argue for the support of system that benefits people like himself at the expense of everyone else, so they have to fear monger and claim that there is something dangerous about battling corruption and inequality.
Beck’s logic is that not allowing the super-rich and powerful to exploit our system is bad for America. Much like the GOP’s (Grand Old Party) job creators argument, Beck is claiming that America benefits from the greed and corruption of the bankers and Wall Street. He seems to be saying that when the banks and Wall Street win, America wins, but this isn’t true.
The truth is that when the banks and Wall Street win, the same people that Beck is trying to scare with his radio show lose. Millions aren’t going to die if the banks and Wall Street are properly regulated. The people who are protesting at Occupy Wall Street aren’t trying to destroy America. They are trying to save it. Glenn Beck has a personal financial interest in making sure that the protests fail….”
“…Today, the Upper East Mississippi Council Of Conservative Citizens came together with Conservatives and Libertarians from numerous organizations to have a Tea Party at the Tippah County Courthouse in Ripley, Mississippi. We had a crowd of over 50 Patriots from all walks of life. Some of them were active in organizations and others were independent conservatives coming together to say we are Taxed Enough Already. This was a rally sponsored by the C of CC and was open to the public, like all of the activities we work on. We had lots of American Revolution and Mississippi Flags and Protest Signs on numerous conservative issues. We enjoyed nearly 2 hours of Right Wing Speeches from some of the best in the business. We thank all those who attended this Tea Party and Patriot Rally and salute those candidates for public office who attended and spoke. We as conservatives must come together for the good of the America Republic and our Sovereign States. We are fighting to unite the right wing. Stand With The Conservative Movement! More Pictures Coming Soon!…”
Just remember, Michelle Malkin, who is criticizing the occupy wall street anarchists writes for Vdare, one of the leading white supremacist sites in the business!
