More Counter-Tea Party Astroturf

First, there was the Coffee Party.

The there was the Other 95%.

Don't feel bad if you don't remember these groups. Despite media cheerleading, they were stillborn at the start. There is simply no vocal grassroots support for a government that consists of a series of cascading failures.

But leftists are intent on creating yet a third astroturfed counter to the grass roots Tea Party, progressives from some of the most thuggish leftist groups are coming together to form something called One Nation:

In dem Bemühen, die Tee-Party für den Erfolg, 170 liberalen und bürgerlichen Rechte Gruppen replizieren bilden eine Koalition, dass sie hoffen, die Bewegung der politischen Energie und Einfluss übereinstimmen. Sie versprechen "counter The Tea Party narrative" und helfen, die fortschreitende Bewegung zu finden, ihre Stimme wieder nach 18 Monaten der Bahn werfen.

Die groß angelegte Versuch, liberale Einheit, genannt "One Nation", werden versuchen, die Themen, die Spannung der progressiven Breitensport vor zwei Jahren neu zu beleben. In einer Wiederverwendung der alten Kampagne Barack Obamas Slogan, sind die Organisatoren fordern "alle ändern" für sie gestimmt haben - Sack im Weißen Haus ...

... "Nachdem mit dem Gespenst der Teeparty konfrontiert... Wir hielten es für dringend geboten, die Mehrheit in diesem Land, das im Jahr 2008 gewählt hat und zurück auf die Couch gegangen zu organisieren", sagte Benjamin Jealous, Präsident der NAACP . "Wir haben in verschiedene Richtungen gespalten."

Die beteiligten Gruppen repräsentieren den Kern der Erstwähler, die Präsident Obama - einschließlich des Nationalen Rates der La Raza, NAACP, AFL-CIO, SEIU und den Vereinigten Staaten Student Association unterstützt. (Der Aufwand ist unabhängig von der Demokratischen Partei den Plan 50.000.000 $ auszugeben versucht, dieselben Wähler zu erreichen.)

Oops. I forgot to translate that out of the original Deutsch.

In an effort to replicate the tea party's success, 170 liberal and civil rights groups are forming a coalition that they hope will match the movement's political energy and influence. They promise to "counter the tea party narrative" and help the progressive movement find its voice again after 18 months of floundering.

The large-scale attempt at liberal unity, dubbed "One Nation," will try to revive themes that energized the progressive grassroots two years ago. In a repurposing of Barack Obama's old campaign slogan, organizers are demanding "all the change" they voted for -- a poke at the White House...

..."Having been confronted with the specter of the tea party . . . we felt it urgent to organize the majority of this country, which voted in 2008 and has gone back to the couch," said Benjamin Jealous, president of the NAACP. "We've been split off in different directions."

The groups involved represent the core of the first-time voters who backed President Obama -- including the National Council of La Raza, NAACP, AFL-CIO, SEIU and the United States Student Association. (The effort is separate from the Democratic Party's plan to spend $50 million trying to reach those same voters.)

Nothing bad ever happens when you combine racial nationalists and savage union muscle, does it?

"One Nation"? That's hilarious coming from the people who advocate multiculturalism, racial preferences, and division politics.

I loved this definition from WikiPedia ...
One Nation is a far-right and nationalist political party in Australia. It gained 22 percent of the vote translating to 11 of 89 seats in Queensland's unicameral legislative assembly at the 1998 state election and made major inroads into the vote of the existing parties. Federally, the party peaked at the 1998 election on 9 percent but progressively lost ground at the 2001 and 2004 elections.

Salvage - you LIBS are absolutely hysterical. Either you all live in caves, or are DSB(dumb, stupid & blind). Lets see, you have: Gov. in N.J., Gov. in VA., Ted Kennedy's old senate seat for decades, Carley Fiorina putting Boxer under in the polls, Meg Whitman looking strong in Kalifornia, old guard repub ousted in Utah, Carville(ragin cajin)predicting a monumental disaster, Pelosi blubbering at every speach, and Mr. Obamanation resorting to his petulant childish behavior - and you ask the "enlightened" question:
"Um when'd that happen?" I guess that happenrd while you were obviously occupied by sucking your thumb!!!!!!!!!

The left constantly misreads the Tea Party movement. For all their lip service to "the grassroots" they can't accept that a movement can spontaneously arise without central, top down planning and organization. That's why their responses have always fallen flat - they can't imagine a popular uprising without people like themselves directing it.

I don't think they ever will understand it. Their reflexive contempt for the masses blinds them to individual initiative. If they are swept from power this year, it will not be because they pissed off a vast swath of citizens with their thuggish arrogance, it will be because of Republican fear mongering.

Believe me, the RNC is not behind the Tea Party. They wish they were, but they have to ruefully acknowledge that they are not driving it - however much the blinkered media "exposes" their hidden hand.

Actually, the "progressive" movement has a "voice." They frigging run the government right now, with the fawning media Renfields trotting along behind, brainlessly echoing everything they say.

What seems to have utterly eluded the One Nation people is that the Tea Party movement is actually the response to that same screeching "voice."

Saying the same stupid things on a broader scale isn't going to change that.

This week at their national conventions both NAACP and NCLR leaders will begin talking to their members about "One Nation," and they are seeking money from foundations for the effort.

For "seeking money from foundations" read "socialist parasites feeding off the long-dead corpses of robber barons and filthy rich capitalists."

"They are calling the Democratic party back to what has been the pattern of successful liberalism in the 20th century," McGerr said.

A pattern currently written large in failing European nations, Venezuela, and everyplace else leftist ideas have been consistently applied.

Spot on TB. Great post. You made me think of something when you pointed out about the "fawning media." Sometimes, when I go to bed at night to get some rest so I can work hard to support a bunch of liberals with my tax dollars, you know - that moment just before you knock out - I let my mind wander and ponder what it would be like if the media really did it's job, cover the news, and ask the hard questions. Wow - you got to wonder what our country would look like, how strong our economy would be, and... OH NEVERMIND.............................

They changed tea party to something else, so,
Do not call them One Nation, call them one Nuthouse.
