Washington Examiner Op-Ed: Enough already with the bashing of the Tea Partiers

Previously apolitical Americans who have become involved with the unexpected uprising known as the Tea Party movement have been subjected to a virulent and sustained assault by the political class, the media elite, academia and the entertainment industry.

Those who still trust these corrupted institutions are misled into believing this textbook application of the people’s First Amendment rights to free speech, assembly and petition is motivated by racism, targeting America’s first black President.

As a veteran, family man and law-abiding citizen, I am angry at these institutions for impugning my neighbors and friends.

As a black man who knows real racism when he sees it, I am furious at their trivialization of the word for political gain. The people who gave President Obama approval ratings in the mid-80’s at the beginning of his term didn’t become racists overnight. It’s not his skin color, but his policies that mobilized the silent majority into action.

Regular folks are angry because the institutions we trusted in the past have failed us. Our elected officials are supposed to work for us, not demean and disregard us.

The media is supposed to inform us without an agenda, to “comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable” regardless of ideology.

Our schools are supposed to impart information to our children and develop their critical thinking skills, not spout propaganda and promote groupthink.

Our entertainers, whose careers depend on the millions of ordinary Americans who adore them, are supposed to amuse or inspire us, not deride us for our beliefs and lifestyles, which they deem less enlightened than their own.

Obama, who promised to transcend our divisions, instead exacerbates them. He represents all the people, but openly mocks those of us who object to his vision of America as people who are not just wrong, but stupid and easily misled. This open display of condescension toward ordinary Americans by our own president is unprecedented in my lifetime.

We expect the people in the political arena to take shots at one another. We don’t expect our elected officials, whose salaries we pay and whose respect we are owed due to the power we accorded them, to attack us and mobilize their allies against us.

We are not the enemy.

We believe in the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

We believe true compassion is a personal, voluntary act of love taken by individuals acting alone or collectively, not the confiscation and redistribution of our wealth by government.

We believe government serves the people, not the other way around, and should be our protector and enforcer, but not our provider. We know the price of government meeting our needs is the loss of our liberty and prosperity.

If you share our beliefs, regardless of race, you are welcome here – I guarantee it.

For me, the face of the Tea Party movement is the woman in her 90’s who attended a rally in March 2009 at which I was the master of ceremonies. As I knelt down to thank her for coming, she said to me, “I’ve never done anything like this my entire life, but I’m angry and I have to do something.”

These are the people for whom I served my country. These are my people, and insults don’t frighten us, they just make us angrier and more determined. The vile practitioners of racial politics and the arrogant elites of the culture will not silence us. We know who we are, and we know what we must do.

More Ethanol Handouts on the Table as DC Pols Go ‘Corny’

More Ethanol Handouts on the Table as DC Pols Go ‘Corny’.

This regime keeps pushing and pushing for the government to control everything in our daily lives.  This government handout for ethanol will help increase gas prices while they attack the oil industry at the same time.  The EPA is quickly becoming the enemy of the U.S. citizen.

“Citizen Soldier”

The Citizen Patriot is now as important as it was during the Revolutionary War. We cannot allow the blood of our courageous military go for naught. Many have died for our freedom, and the freedom of millions around the world. That fact cannot go unnoticed, unappreciated and forgotten.

U.S. Constitutional Free Press

This is a new type of blog.  This is a blog for and by the people. A tea party blog if you will.  We have many contributors and many opinions of regular Americans.  This is not an organization, or a group, but is a blog made up of many individuals who believe in Freedom and our Constitution.  The voice of Americans is being drowned out by the uneducated media who has no desire to air the truth.  The time has come for the American people to take the news in their own hands and make sure the truth is known to all. This site is dedicated to the truth, freedom, Americans and to the Constitution of the United States of America. We are creating a melting pot of conservative ideas from people all over the nation. Enter at your own risks.  As the truth may be offensive to those who do not think for themselves.

Mad Hatters to Crash the Tea Parties

From Canada Free Press:

Agent Provocateur Mad Hatters want to crash your Tea Party

By Judi McLeod Friday, April 9, 2010

Warning: Marinated-in-Marxism Democrats and supporters are hot on the trail of Tea Party patriots.

They have launched a Crash the Tea Party (CTTP) website: crashtheteaparty.org on the eve of the April 15 anniversary of the Tea Party.

“WHO WE ARE, Crash The Tea Party style, is a lesson in Marxism 101: “A nationwide network of Democrats, Republicans, and Independents who are sick and tired of that loose affiliation of racists, homophobes, and morons; who constitute the fake grass-roots movement which calls itself “The Tea Party.”

The definition of CTTP couldn’t have been better scripted by Nancy Pelosi.

“WHAT WE WANT: To dismantle and demolish the Tea Party by any non-violent means necessary.

“HOW WE WILL SUCCEED: By infiltrating the Tea Party itself! In an effort to propagate their pre-existing propensity for paranoia and suspicion…We have already sat quietly in their meetings, and observed their rallies.”

But the game-plan is Crash the Tea Party’s most ominous part: “We will act on behalf of the Tea Party in ways which exaggerate their least appealing qualities (misspelled protest signs, wild claims in TV interviews, etc.) to further distance them from mainstream America and damage the public’s opinion of them. We will also use the inside information that we have gained in order to disrupt and derail their plans.” (Emphasis CFP’s).

“Sound like fun? It is!! If you’d like to join us, just click on the word “crash!” below.

Crash the Tea Party could should be called Agent Provocateurs Are Us!

And like the scurrilous snipers of the sidelines they are, they try to pass off their website registrant name as Ben Franklin.

Crash the Tea Party was registered April 3, 2010.

CFP conducted an Internic “Whois” search and discovered that the phone number listed for the Ben Franklin registrant gave an S. Lamonoff in Langhorne, Pa. White pages list a Sheila R. Lamonoff as holder of the telephone line, also listed as S. Lamonoff.

The telephone number listed for Crash the Tea Party is 215-752-1992. The number has call block service.

CFP dialed the number and reached a recorded female voice saying “You have reached Carol and Nat, We are not available. Leave a message and have a nice day.”

Other records indicate that there is a Norman Lamonoff listed at the same address.

Meanwhile, patriots take note: The Dem-inspired agent provocateurs want to crash your Tea Party.

Our April 15th tea parties are fast approaching us. Keep an eye out for those looking to crash them and give us a bad name. Lets point them out, and have them peacefully removed. However, do not be deterred from standing up and giving your opinion and thoughts. That is the purpose of these Mad Hatter Traitors, to scare us into not speaking, giving them all the power and influence. Only the “people” can stop what is going on. Only “patriots” can prevent this country from being taken over from within.
