How sad that the IRS scored better than the Tea Party, and Palin.

Should anyone be surprised that the approval rating of the Tea Party movement isn't higher? The media has painted the movement as extreme. Members of the media have referred to the movement by a vulgar sexual term. The media reported that members of the Tea Party spit on a member of the Black Caucus; subsequently, video from the incident showed that the person was shouting a slogan and had a "say-it-don't-spray-it" moment. The protester did not bring up phlegm and purposely spit in someone's face as an act of disrespect. Too late . . . damage done. The media also reported that the Tea Partiers yelled a racial epithet beginning with the letter "N". Video footage of the event has failed to confirm this assertion. Andrew Breitbart has offered $100,000 to anyone that produces a video clip of the "N" word - needless to say, the money has gone uncollected despite the presence of hundreds of video cameras. Furthermore, Breitbart has offered to donate $100,000 to the United Negro College Fund if Rep. John Lewis passes a lie detector test concerning hearing protesters yelling that epithet. Lewis has not accepted the offer.

The blogger Zombie, took pictures at a Tea Party event in Searchlight, Nevada as well as pictures at a left-wing anti-war protest in LA around the same time period. More pictures are available at the link but the following two pictures should give you an idea of what Zombie found. Do you think the media would report the kind of signs that were present at the anti-war rally? Somehow, I doubt it.

One tactic of the media has been to show a sign from a Tea Party Protest with something like "Obama is a Socialist" or a sign with a picture of Obama next to Karl Marx. The reporter will then go on to say that because of such signs the Tea Party is exhibiting "extremism" or "hate"

Here is link to another photoessay by Zombie showing signs concerning Bush at left-wing protests. Surprisingly, the media didn't report these signs and didn't report these protests as "extremist" or "hateful"

Yeah, stuff like that is why I believe that Left-Wing Liberals are the greatest enemy of this nation.

I find it interesting that when a Conservative is in power, Liberals will say that "dissent is highest form of patriotism." Which obviously only applies when they are the dissenters. Because now that they are in charge, dissent is villified and, if they continue to have their way, will be illegal.

What's funny, is that I will probably offend more Liberals and "Conservatives" on this site by posting this image...

Posting a poll/clip from a liberal site/news organization to counter against the Tea Party makes as much sense as overweight/obese Rob Reiner's campaign against cigarettes being bad for one's health.

I've read quite a few zombietime exposÚs, he (or she, I'm not sure) has stepped up and brought us what's really happening politically that the MSM either will not cover or does so only in a biased manner.

Like free speech, they support it as long as it's their free speech. Hence the repeated efforts to pass "Net Neutrality" and "The Fairness Doctrine".

Nate, I'm sure you've heard this before but just in case...

Yes, I remember hearing that. I wonder where she would she would stand on that issue today? :laugh:

Also, have you ever noticed that when polls or public opinions don't go Liberals' way, then it's because the American people are stupid, uneducated, brainwashed, narrow-minded, etc. However, as soon as they find a poll or statistic that they like the results of, then they are quick to shove it in everyone's face and tout it as absolute truth. :rolleyes:

I know! Tonight I was listening to L. Ingraham and she was talking to a dem strategist about health care disapproval #s in the polls. The strategist replied "it depends on how you ask the question". lol!

It's a double standard. I'm used to it (not that I'm happy about it but what can you do?).

Remember how several news networks gave nightly "killed in the war" numbers? Not anymore. Isn't Michael Moore going to do a montage of KIA using BO's face? And how about those numerous drone attacks this administration has employed lately? I haven't heard Bill Maher complain about those but he had plenty to say about our AF bomber pilots when GWB was pres.

The following is taken from the website: CrashTheTeaParty.org:

Who We Are: A nationwide network of Democrats, Republicans, and Independents who are all sick and tired of that loose affiliation of racists, homophobes, and morons; who constitute the fake grass-roots movement which calls itself "The Tea Party."

What We Want: To dismantle and demolish the Tea Party by any non-violent means necessary.

How We Will Succeed: By infiltrating the Tea Party itself! In an effort to propagate their pre-existing propensity for paranoia and suspicion . . . We have already sat quietly in their meetings, and observed their rallies.

Whenever possible, we will act on behalf of the Tea Party in ways which exaggerate their least appealing qualities (misspelled protest signs, wild claims in TV interviews, etc.) to further distance them form mainstream America and damage the public's opinion of them. We will also use the inside information that we have gained in order to disrupt and derail their plans.

I disagree. Liberalism is not a mental disorder; liberalism is a religion for liberals.

What I have noticed is that when anyone disagrees with NateR's opinion, you use the same tactics which you are now condemning. Read back some of your prior posts where you have called me or others on here stupid, uneducated, brainwashed, narrow-minded etc. You seem to be okay when you are the one doing the name calling.

My link showed the results from a poll FOX news conducted. I thought you were okay with FOX news. :laugh:

I just thought it humorous that their poll appeared to come back and bite them in their collective behind.

Yes, I can read, I just didn't; my bad!

The one factor here is that even the Tea Party is a threat to the RNC as even they have become Liberal in some instances, so I would expect that Fox News' viewers (or non-viewers) would be partially against it. The Tea Party is for true conservatives through and through and right now, our nation has been taught that the government should solve all problems for us, which is complete and utter bull ****.

My point is that the mainstream media is not an "unbiased site". Studies on the political affiliation of journalists have shown that 90%+ are liberals. I know you don't think that those pictures are photoshopped. It comes down to the selection bias of the person presenting the story. During the Bush administration, I never saw photos in the mainstream media of anti-war protest rallies featuring signs with death threats or the "fringe" nature of many of the protest participants - that doesn't mean that they did not exist, I provided photo evidence of the contrary. The journalist would always find the parent of a soldier KIA, like Cindy Sheehan, and give her free reign to call George Bush a murderer. This despite the fact that most military families, even the ones that suffered loss, respected George Bush.

Journalists who cover the Tea Party rallies will not show the picture that I posted earlier, of the mother and her daughter with a home-made sign made with a crayon. Instead, they will search the crowd of 10,000 and find the looniest character they can find. He will have a crazy t-shirt and a tri-corner hat and be totally inarticulate on camera. Don't you remember when a CNN reporter actually got into a verbal fight with a Tea Party member? Do you think a CNN reporter would ever argue with an anti-war protester?

I posted a picture of a black woman carrying a sign with a picture of George Bush with a bloody bullet hole on his forehead. Is that sign racist? Was the protest that she attended called a racist protest? What do you think would happen if a white male Tea Party member carried a sign with a picture of President Obama with a bloody bullet hole on his forehead? I can tell you what would happen: Time, Newsweek, U.S. News, The New York Times, etc. would have the picture on the cover with the caption: "Tea Party - The New Face of Racism?" Despite the fact that the Tea Party is concerned with government spending, deficits, debt, fiscal responsibility, constitutional government, etc.
