I Prefer Tea..

I don’t think I have ever considered the possibility of Coffee or Tea being politicized..

Obviously, the Tea Party movement uses “Tea” because of the revolutionary roots, and its meaning of “standing up to an oppressive authority.”   It represents the individualism of patriots in this country and a desire to be free of unneeded government interference and manipulation of our lives.  We assert that we are a FREE people, and are petitioning our government to step back to the constitutional precepts that founded this nation.

But there are some who are so afraid of individuality, they will do anything to distort who we are, and falsely represent what we believe.  If not by simply screaming it out as obscenities and hyperbole,  but now through the use of similarities in the group naming.  The outfit at COFFEEPARTYUSA.COM is headed up by film maker and activist Annabel Park a rabid Obama supporter.

the group uses the “coffee party” name in a manner that attempts to mimic the organizing efforts of the Tea Parties.  They attempt to convince those who are unhappy with government to come to “coffee Parties” instead of protesting, in a way that confuses the entire point of the protests.  In other words saying you don’t like the way things are going? Come sit with us and we will tell you why you are wrong..  We’ll work it out.

The tactic in this case is hardly unique or original. The method of harnessing a sentiment and redirecting it in a way that unknowingly goes against the person holding it is a classic progressive (Leftist) strategy.  We have seen it in the Ray Schoenke Ads prior to the 2008 election, or even the GOP4OBAMA site sham.  Heck, Even Michelle Malkin has a story today about other fakers.

The left knows it has NOTHING to offer.  It must try to deceive the potential supporters by pretending it is something it is not.

Wasn’t that how the communist got in the white house?

Indeed when it comes to REAL Americans protesting the rampant abuses by government..  Its not the intellectually vapid coffee shop where you will find me.. IT will ALWAYS be at the tea party.

    A disturbing development!

    Tea makes a lovely politcal symbol, but COFFEE is the quintessential American drink! What fueled the navy that beat the Japs in The Big One? No, not fuel oil – COFFEE! What drink did Americans turn to in the days of the original Tea Party? COFFEE!

    The TEA party is about taxes. The candidate identified by Malkin as a “faker” is actually more conservative than she is.

    Please stop diluting the TEA party with the GOP agenda. It isn’t about foreign policy, or abortion rights, or hating Obama. It is about reducing government spending.

      It is about a number of things..

      Please elaborate on diluting with a “GOP agenda.” The Tea parties I have helped organize, cater to a number of “agendas.” The Obama agenda is ultimately opposed to the constitutional premise the country has thrived under for some time. Spending alone is hardly the only place he is wrong. Why would we not talk about those issues as well?

      I have seen people at the Tea Parties that I disagree with on a number of issues.. But one issue that is consistent, is the Government has consolidated too much power that takes away ALL of our voices. If you are calling that a GOP agenda.. umm I guess..

      As for Malkin’s piece.. I have seen a number of “fake Vets” attempt to define how the vets feel.. While I know there are veterans who now support peace at any cost, the efforts made by those who are indeed falsely representing themselves muddies the water.

      There is nothing wrong with an opinion, but one made under the false pretenses I have exposed is simply lying.
