This morning I received a disgusting email from Trevor FitzGibbon of fitzgibbonmedia.com signed by Erica Payne (firstname.lastname@example.org) founder and president of some entity called The Agenda Project. According to Politico's Ben Smith, this is a so-called "progressive group with roots in New York's fundraising scene."
The sophomoric email asked me to suspend civility:
Set aside your good manners, your tolerance, your measured understanding of policy differences, and your earnest do-gooder ideas for a [sic.] just a moment to join me in telling the Tea Party what you really think of them.
The email proudly announces that the "F*ck Tea Movement" was launched at Netroots, a.k.a. Nutroots, and was a "major presence" at the College Dems' annual convention. Enough from these defenders of civil discourse. You get the picture.
As most RedStaters understand, the Tea Party is a popular grass roots movement of Americans so offended by the efforts Obama and his leftwing supporters to lurch the country far to the left that they have taken to politics. They are as mad as hell and aren't going to take it any more. Because of this the Tea Party movement is perceived as a threat to those pushing Obama's extremist agenda.
As they did when threatened by the elevation of Governor Sarah Palin to the national stage, Democrats have resorted to demonization to attempt to discredit the Tea Party movement and remove the threat.
The Democrats failed efforts to disparage the movement have included:
- Incorrect and unsubstantiated assertions that the Tea Party movement was Tea Party movement was the astroturf creation of corporate groups.
- Attempts to infiltrate the Tea Party movement.
- Attempts to paint the Tea Party Movement as racist.
- Attempt to convince voters to equate the Tea Party Movement with the GOP.
Having miserably failed in all these efforts the Liberal/Progressive Democrats now try another despicable campaign -- this desperate "f*ck" the Tea Party Movement campaign.
Tell Erica Payne what you think of her campaign to "f*ck" the Tea Party movement. But please try to keep it civil.
