Teabagging! part 2

242 posts in this topic

I'm not measuring penises here. He's somehow discounting the tea parties that are going on in quite a number of places even around here in NC by attributing them to some grand organization telling/funding them to think a certain way. He couldn't be more wrong...and even if it were true that there is funding somehow...so what. Go see if the protestors are being paid. If they are...then he's got a beef. I don't like ACORN paying crackheads to fill out voter registration forms...and I wouldn't like paid protestors...but I think Fiz is just full of it.

you're missing the point and acting like a petulant child in the process.

I don't doubt that these people are outraged. Whether or not the things they are outraged about has any merit, well, that's something else entirely.

however, they are expressing their outrage under the guise that it's a grassroots, populist campaign, that sprouted completely organically and naturally.

These things are demonstrably not true, and the people that attend these events are doing the king's bidding.

this is not a difficult concept to understand.

Obama knew he couldn't beat McCain through abiding by the simple limitations of public financing/matching of campaign contributions. He backed out on his word...he was bought and paid for. So if there's a negative to being financed to get your word out...Obamessiah is the Pope.

just pointing out, i don't think you can blame furries on teh gheys.

It's a grey area...they like to blur the lines in deviancy. I didn't mean to imply they are symbiotic.

You mean like through online networking? like FaceBook? Blogospheres? Wait a minute...Obama did that too.

well, no, not exactly.

obama knew he couldn't beat McCain using public financing plus the limitless coffers of the republican national committee, plus McCain's own private wealth.

Fiz why do you (or anyone else, for that matter) care if a bunch of people go out and protest taxes? Isn't this a lot like the dipshits who used to hold hands for nuclear peace? Let them have their rallies. They'll all get home and realize they just wasted four hours of their time.

Word of mouth still works too.

I don't have any problem at all with protesting. In fact I encourage responsible protesting, which involves public demonstration and aggressive information campaigns.

watering this down to me being against protest is very disingenuous.

What I am against are corporate interests operating under the guise of populism as a means of manufacturing consent. I am against people voting and protesting with false consciousness. I've taken part in protests here in Atlanta at AIG headquarters in Dunwoody. This was organized organically over a period of two months. We didn't have corporate sponsorships.

These teaparties are simply a public face to a corporate campaign for corporate tax breaks and further deregulation. If you think that at the end of the day the people who have organized these events that you are carrying out care about you at all and have your best interests in mind then I suggest you order [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Death-Thousand-Cuts-Taxing-Inherited/dp/0691122938"]Death by a Thousand Cuts[/ame].

there is a very large difference between say an event created on facebook, or a protest getting its directions off twitter, and something created by dick army with massive amounts of corporate sponsorships popping up instantly all over the country under the guise of grassroots.

don't try to make this something it's not

Do you honestly believe that even tea parties held in towns as small as Edenton, NC got a dime from a Dick Armey sponsorship? Are you really this nutty?

Are you really a KaseKopied psuedo-id? The 9/11 conspiracy stuff you wanted to float anonymously right?
