Tea Party Knockoffs: Watered Down, Bitter

It looks like our friends at the NY Times and Washington Post are thrilled to jump on the bandwagon of the left-wing Coffee Party.

Too bad their articles cheerleading the group just happened to come out on the day Pajamas Media published my article exposing them as the front-end of a left-wing astroturfing campaign.

Well what do you know, the NYT writer on the coffee party is Zernike, the same hack who called Mattera racist for being a latino man with a brooklyn accent

I think that there is more in common with the Tea Party and the Coffee Party than you may like to admit. The accountability of government and elected leaders to the citizenry.

The big difference is the overall view that government is NOT the enemy. That government is NOT a bad thing. That government actually serves the will of the people.

Actually these days the government pretty much serves the will of its own bureaucracy and politicians.

Uh, Steve, yeah right. The Coffee Party is nothing more than an arm of Obama 4 America. After ignoring, deriding and slandering the Tea Parties for a year the witless, cowardly vermin of OFA are now trying to usurp their position. It won't work. The only way American Lefty radicalism could proser electorally as it has is for most of the nation to remain ignorant of their true agenda, character and composition. Obama has tried mightily to rule in secret but it just is not that easy. He and the Left have had the advantage of a pet press corpse that would let them get away with saying mutually contradictory things to various demographic or interest groups until Obama could confidently say whatever needed to be said at any moment. Jeremiah Wright put it quite well, saying that Barack says what he needs to say as a politician. No need to take it too seriously. Only now these morons have the simple necessities of reality intruding and the result is not pretty. A poisonous ideology wedded to an arrogant, indifferent incompetence can lead to many things, none of them good. That is where we are today and the slide, friends and foes, has barely begun. BARELY BEGUN!
