Dear America: Liberals Want You to Know How They Feel About You

The Coffee Party was a flop. The Other 95% bombed. Crash the Tea Party made progressives a laughingstock. So can they make it any worse for themselves?

Yes they can!

Dem group launches 'F*ck Tea' campaign

Last summer, Democrats argued that the Tea Party movement was the astroturf creation of corporate groups. Now that the grass-roots conservative resurgence has emerged as a clear force on the right, the left is making a different case: That tea parties are simply the enemy.

To that end, the Agenda Project, a new, progressive group with roots in New York's fundraising scene and a goal of strengthening the progressive movement, has launched the "F.*.c.k. Tea project," which is aimed, the group's founder Erica Payne wrote in an e-mail this morning, "to dismiss the Tea Party and promote the progressive cause."

The article goes on to say that Payne is a co-founder of a group of liberal mega-donors that ultimately fund the Center for American Progress, Media Matters and Think Progress. They also have a profane video (NSFW) that mocks Tea Party supporters and imagines liberals as clever and urbane.

You really must see it to believe it.

My advice? Distribute this far and wide, without distortion. Let America know what the would-be ruling class thinks about them in their quest for more and more power. Let our citizens know how Democratic elitists (and some Republicans as well) feel about their concerns about our economy, our sovereignty, and our nation's future.

I expected this kind of "let them eat tapas" attitude from Michelle Antoinette in private, but never expected her palace guard to be so open about their disdain for the concerns of the majority of America in public.

Quoting from a responder to another site: “First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they get violent, then you win.” Ghandi" This kind of thing just makes you know that we are having the desired effect. Next comes public foaming-at-the-mouth by the lapdog media on national TV.

Very true garrettc, once they start ridiculing you and getting violent you win.

Because liberalism is a persistent vegetative state.
I pray for peace.

But I prepare for war.

It looks to me like CY is getting ready to lose, how does it look to you?

What exactly do these tiny minds have against tea? I prefer coffee, myself, but to hurl such invective at an innocent beverage...

Voters to mount “F*ckD em” campaign.
Fits perfectly with Nancy Pelosi’s “NewD irection”

Have the geniuses behind this new campaign been drug tested?

Remember the "Sarah Palin is a c*nt" shirts that were going around during the 2008 campaign?

It seems the tolerant left is once again on display.

As I understand the original intent of the Tea Party, it was organized to protest excessive government spending and consequently excessive tax burdens. Most seem to want smaller government. It clearly being demonstrated that big government does little for the economy and personal freedom. I don't see how these objectives are so repulsive.

However, I have seen more injection of religious themes, particularly down here is the South. This includes abortion and to an extent evolution topics. This will clearly turn off a large number of individuals that want more personal freedom in the movement. I stated this in a recent discussion on RedState and was blocked from the blog. So I must have hit a nerve.

We do need to support the original intent of the movement and restore the country to its original fundamentals. I don't really think that voting is going to help that much.

And Jim, make sure you finish your homework before responding. School has started and the first few days are important.

Coffee parody was a flop? Really? I'm still getting spam (which now is routed automatically to a black hole) from C P U S A.

The left shows its usual class.

Jim: "It looks to me like CY is getting ready to lose, how does it look to you?"

To me? It looks like Jim is in deep denial of reality and wishing for a result that is about as likely as the Democrats holding both Houses of Congress this November.

Well, as likely as Democrats holding both Houses of Congress this November absent Clinton- and Carter-appointee judges overturning the results of elections.
