Ron Paul nearly obliterated from wiki 'Tea-Party' entry - references to Ryan added!Submitted by truthpursuer on Thu, 08/16/2012 - 20:19
Paul Ryan went from ZERO references to like a half dozen. Ron Paul was dropped in many instances.
Someone's edited the hell out of wiki's "Tea Party Movement" entry, presumably to black out Ron Paul and whitewash Paul Ryan. A couple hours ago there wasn't a single mention of December 16, 2007! It lists the first tea parties as 2009, cites the Santelli rant, and spends 3 paragraghs crediting "Seattle blogger and conservative activist Keli Carender with organizing the first Tea Party in February 2009." There is now only a few references of Ron Paul.
They even stole one version of the Black THIS out marking, the one Ron used on his webpage, for the moneybomb. http://www.theamericanconservative.com/wp-content/uploads/20...
whos missing from that picture? Thats a theteaparty.net ad
Claims the Gadsen Flag became a Tea Party symbol "beginning in 2009"!
Under "First National Protests" there is no mention of our tea party or Ron Paul, but there's still a picture of Ron in that section!
Under agenda, there's a whole section on "Contract from America"
These references to Ryan were added:
In August, presumed Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney selected Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin as his vice-presidential running mate. The move was praised by the Tea Party Express, the Tea Party Patriots, Sarah Palin, as well as many other Tea Party groups and Libertarians.
The tea party's involvement in the 2012 GOP presidential primaries was minimal, owing to divisions over whom to endorse as well as lack of enthusiasm for all the candidates. Which is not to say the 2012 GOP ticket hasn't had an influence on the Tea Party: following the selection of Paul Ryan as Mitt Romney's vice-presidential running mate, the New York Times declared that the once fringe of the conservative coalition, Tea Party lawmakers are now "indisputably at the core of the modern Republican Party." 
Oh and a photo of Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich were added.
