Liberal Group With White House Ties Manufactured Racist Tea Partiers


The left will stoop to any low to get their way and frame the debate. They’ve got conservatives arguing with conservatives over whether or not comparing the policies of Barack Obama to Hitler and Stalin is racist. (Which it’s not, by the way. Our side needs to stop allowing their side to frame the debate. Stop accepting their premises, once you do that the battle is lost.) The NAACP has branded the Tea Parties racist.

Now Think Progress, a liberal website that’s the child of the Soros funded Center for American Progress, has planted people at tea parties bearing racist signs. They even went so far as to attribute a 2006 video, long before the tea parties even existed, to a tea party. It’s insane. You can see the details at Right Klik.

Big Government summed it up quite well. (video and photo below the fold)

Do you remember the abortive “Crash the Tea Party” movement? It was the brainchild of a liberal that explicitly called for progressives to commit fraud in order to attempt to discredit the Tea Party protests.

At Pajamas Media we covered the abortive effort extensively, and made note of the very real bigotry the Crashers unwittingly revealed… in themselves.

This morning, I came across this video from Think Progress:

Typical of the kind of dishonest effort Think Progress produces, the video heavily edits clips so that you have no idea what the context of a statement is or precisely what someone they’ve edited is trying to say.

Worse, the video “liberally” makes use of counter Tea Party protesters and infiltrators, including “Crash the Tea Party” drones, in order to fabricate their view.

The guy who claims “I’m a proud racist, I white” was actually driven out of the Tea Party protest he attempted to infiltrate.

Nice work, Think Progress!

Seconds later, Think Progress stitches together a series of posters they claim belong to Tea Party protesters.

Really, Think Progress?

Did you not think we’d remember the amusing signs your fellow liberals created for their little abortive “Crash the Tea Party” stunt in Boston? Let’s just say that some were more amusing than others, and some just showed pathetic and angry progressives often are.

Gateway Pundit adds:

The Center for American Progress(CAP) is a George Soros-funded initiative. It was founded by former Clinton chief of staff John Podesta. Think Progress is one of the CAP’s blogs that “provides a forum that advances progressive ideas and policies.”

According to Discover the Networks, after Barack Obama was elected President in 2008, CAP served as perhaps the most influential organization advising the new administration. Among Obama’s leading advisers were John Podesta and at least ten additional CAP experts.

Last week the NAACP announced that they would pass a resolution that calls upon “all people of good will to repudiate the racism of the Tea Parties, and to stand in opposition to its drive to push our country back to the pre-civil rights era.” Two days later Think Progress released its fraudulent “racist” tea party video.

Bloggers: Doing the job the media refuses to do. No wonder they need a bailout.
