    The Tea Party Drove The Liberals Insane, here's a few words from the old loony has been Jeanne Garafooly, when they have no other out these Pigs always try to start "The Racist Sh!t" (there's one right on this forum)

    Today:
    By Amanda Carpenter on April 17, 2009 into The Back Story
    Subscribe Liberal actress and political activist Janeane Garofalo, in all seriousness, said activists who attended tea parties are racists with dysfunctional brains in a recent prime-time television appearance.

    "Let's be very honest about what this is about. This is not about bashing Democrats. It's not about taxes. They have no idea what the Boston Tea party was about. They don't know their history at all. It's about hating a black man in the White House," she said on MSNBC's "The Countdown" with Keith Olbermann Thursday evening. "This is racism straight up and is nothing but a bunch of teabagging rednecks. There is no way around that."

    Olbermann did not once try to challenge her on those assertions.

    I can't believe the absolute vitriol over those tea parties. Now it's a racial problem:rolleyes: There was a clip of a CNN reporter (nobody well-known apparently) who baited and cajoled some of the party-goers,one in particular( a dad holding his son who looked around 1 year old?). It was awful. Later on a woman told her off,citing to her exactly what she was doing and telling her she truly had no idea who any of them really were. This woman happened to be a businesswoman and a democrat(?) who was there with her husband,both professionals.

    Here's my take: I think Fox jumped on an opportunity and ran with it, actually probably to the detriment of the people protesting because they then got labeled as right-wingers when in fact,they were in truth apparently a demographic cross-section of just simply,Americans. Blue collar,white collar,black,white,hispanic,whatever.

    MSNBC has been tanking for a few months and CNN's ratings have been abysmal, but instead of trying to right their own ship they're just attacking.
    The pols may show one thing but it seems those numbers aren't reflected in people's choice of news broadcasts.:confused2:

    Media War! Even Stewart and Colbert attacked Fox and the parties,brutal,and I'm sure Fox is shaking all the way to the bank.

    Instead of attacking the tea parties and/or Fox, those other networks should start trying to figure out how to get back in touch with what people want,think and feel but to do that they'd have to get out of bed with the govt and that won't likely happen anytiime soon. Fox is no better,it's just that they're capitalizing on a situation which happened to fall into their laps and they're running with it.

    I guess Garafalo missed the non-white faces in the crowds:confused:

    The CNN ditz you refer to and went on a Fox rant apparently applied twice for a job with fos and was turned down ;)

    The tea party in Houston was estimated by the MSM to have 2k participants, people at the rally collected 8,500 signatures with many not wanted to be identified...

    Add to this that there were over a thousand teaparties around the country. the Numbers may be far higher than the 250,000 MSM reports claim...

    I guess this is why the left freaked. These are people who have probably never don this before.

    Look at the title of the thread you're congratulating yourselves in and think about what that says about which side is the angry one.

    The tea parties were lame. There wasn't anything wrong with them per se, they were just embaressingly small no matter how many there were. I laughed when I read people saying, "Yeah, they were small, but do you know how many of them there were?" I've seen hundreds of thousand gather for various causes down in Washington. If there was just one tea party held there, I'd bet it may have been 5,000 people tops.

    THAT'S why these tea parties were held in so many locations. Typically a real national cause or movement calls for citizens to march on Washington. But the truth is, no one would have showed up! :rofl:

    I say it was appx. a quarter of that, and out of that group maybe 20% were actually protesting taxes. You can try to spin this all you want its not the great uprising you portait it to be.

    Maybe if they put down the "Obama Osama" and "Obama is a Muslim Terrorist" signs she wouldn't be forced to point out the obvious.

    Here is a link to a list of locations and estimated atttendance:

    2009 Tea Party Roll Call

    Their headcount is over 600K at this point. The number of locations speaks against the idea of a big centralized organization and speak to more of a grass root movement.

    Attendance in MA and RI wasn't very high/ Of course it was a workday also.

    Some are talking about doing it again on July 4th.


    While people have many issues besides taxes most were opposed to taxes + other aspects or all aspects of the big government/Socialist agenda.

    Well when the MSM says 2k showed up to an event and the people at the event collected 8900+ signatures would you call that credible?


    This is grassroot stuff not a left wing deal financed by a billionaire like Soros.

    The hysterical reaction of the left wing media trying to dismiss these folks says a lot.

    BTW I wih I could have attended but was at work there are many more like me out there, more than could actually attend. ;)

    Are you a big fan of ACORN?


    This isn't a grassroots movement, it was started and pushed by a cable news network lol, if Fox wasn't behind it it probably would have been 5 people sitting around a hotel meeting room *****ing.

    How exactly did Gearge Soros get 500,000 people to march in DC against the war? It's amazing that you're gonna try and make people believe that the left is financed by billionaires and the right is not. Can you even name another left wing billionaire? I know I can't.

    You know 13 a 16 year old with a lap top and google could destroy you, never mind one of us. I'm not taking the word of FAUX news which promoted the whole thing and has a financial stake in it. Next time try an idependent source.
    Why you continue to try and just post things that anyone can check out for credibility i don't know. You look like a fool when you get caught, and you get caught all the time.

    I missed the July 4th comment. Smart plan, now they can get people with signs to walk into large crowds celebrating and claim that everyone was there to protest.

    It really doesn't matter how many showed up or who was there.- people still can't stop talking about them and call me crazy but I bet that was the whole point of them to begin with. duh. Those tea parties have gotten as much press as the G 20. I'd call that a success. Take into acccount Fox news' ratings just on that day alone and I'd call it a pretty big success. It doesn't matter what you think about the parties,it only matters that you think about them.

    Now they have racial overtones,which of course anyone who pays any attention at all knows is not true which makes the accusation even more desperate looking.

    Peaceful protest is a right in this country, that's one reason why people want to live here. You may not always agree with the stance but why debase the fact people did it? Why debase the fact a company was smart enough to capitalize on an opportunity that was laid in their laps and are proceeding to reap the benefits from it because that's how capitalism works. Instead of complaining and nit picking you people should be happy both those ideals still work in this country.

    If you don't embrace those 2 ideals then owell.

    Nobody is arguing against their right to protest. What we are talking about is the hyping of an event by a massive cable news outlet. If CNN spent all day on pro life rallies we'd be here talking about that too. The fact is that righties are touting this as some massive populist uprising, when in actuality it's relatively small compared to other protests that aren't given nearly as much attention.

    When somebody protests it's perfectly reasonable to weigh in on the validity of their grievances, this is done every time there's a demonstration. When the G20 protests took place (which dwarf these by comparison) there was zero platform amongst the media to hear there arguments and I defended them and their point of view because I happen to agree with most of them. In this case, you have a bunch of the Fox News audience trying to disguise another anti-Obama protest with bluster about wasteful spending and illogical claims about taxes that haven't gone up for the vast majority of them. They already hate Obama and now they are being told that the stimulus is going to be the source of their ills, the arguments don't hold any water.
