Fox's Hannity : Liberals Seeking to Infiltrate Tea Party
Fox News Pundit Sean Hannity Exposes new web site called "Crash the Tea Party"
A new Web site called "Crash the Tea Party" has been launched, whose purpose, according to the web master's word on its home page, it to organize a national infiltration of the Tea Party movement.
Hannity claims it is an effort to discredit the movement, and to spread alleged disinformation and other propaganda concerning it.
This news comes even as today's New York Times has written some positive statements about the Tea Party, stating that the rumors that its members lacked education and finances were largely false.
Alright. So I actually think in the end this is going to be a good thing. People criticized me when I first found this out Friday, "Crash the Tea Parties", I told my radio audience, told the TV audience, put it up on my Web site. And I said, I want you to see what they're trying to do. They're going to show up with ignorant signs. They're going to try and get on the media. They're going to try and say horrible things.
Because right now the country has a favorable view of the Tea Party movement. What do you think of this movement?
BURGESS: Well, to me the Tea Party movement, liberals are always taken aback when the people actually object to what they're doing. They only love free speech if it agrees with what they want you to say.
Talk Radio host Rick Burgess went on to say that liberals find the Tea Party evil, but loved Woodstock with its naked people rolling around.
Hannity claimed that "Crash the Tea Party" was determined to slur and spread lies about the Tea Party, by misportraying its members as reactionary loose cannons. In truth, Hannity says, it is only Americans fed up with big government over-spending and over-taxing.
Burgess and Hannity agree that in the end, getting back to the principles of the Founding Fathers is what the Tea Party is all about. (That depends largely on your understanding of the intent of said fathers. SMK)
The Tea Party movement, comprised largely of white males, may indeed be making its needs felt even as it offers no clear solutions. Voicing most of its theory as an empty "No", a negation and refutation which opens no new doors, it fails to inherit and surpass what has transpired these past 4 decades; hence, it is not a vehicle of historical evolution.
There is a sort of bastardization of founding father maxims which are taken out of context and place within a context which would be foreign to most of these original men.
All of these points were set forth by conservative David Frum; the result being, he was ousted from his salaried position, held for 7 years, at a conservative think tank.
