A Snake in the Grassroots of the Tea Party
By Silver Shield, on February 9th, 2011
I have warned those in the Freedom Movement about Patriot Pied Pipers trying to infiltrate, subvert and destroy the National Tea Party. On a national level, I warned about Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, and even Wikileaks. Well now I see they have even burrowed into the local grassroots of the Tea Party. I had a very interesting email exchange with the head of a pretty popular Tea Party site yesterday.
A couple of things hit me during this exchange. The first thing is that this guy was thoroughly indoctrinated exactly like I was 15 years ago. (We will call him “Mr.TeaParty,” since he has a really cool disclaimer for privacy on all of his emails and I am sure he would not want me to out him or his efforts which you will see why below.) He had all of the Reagan worship, the spouting conservative talking points without any real thinking or debate and he ignored all of the facts that did not support his paradigm.
I felt like I was talking to my younger self, because no one could defeat me in a debate. I knew it ALL. I was in the leadership of the second largest college Republicans, I went to CPAC twice, I banged signs against long shore men, I went to Rush Limbaugh’s show three times and even got my two books signed. Like I said, thoroughly indoctrinated.
I believed in the Republican song and dance up until 2005, when for the first time in my life, the Republicans had no more excuses. They had full control of the government and they did nothing to reign in the size or scope of government. They made it worse, they increased the debt, the intrusion of government and even created another trillion dollar Medicare program. It was then when I woke up to see that it is all a big game to fool us. As a result, I knew what this guy was going to say before he said it.
Let’s start at the beginning. I had sent “Mr. TeaParty” my article, Idiot or Evil Genius?, which is about the dichotomy of how people look at both Bush and Obama, as either Idiots or Evil Geniuses. ”Mr. TeaParty” thanked me for the article and said that while I had some good points, I had failed to mention that Obama was spending money four times faster than Bush ever did. I knew at that point, that I had someone stuck in the Elite’s left right matrix.
I responded with…
