Media Insani-tea: Since When Has Barry Ever Turned Down A Party??? April 16, 2009

Now that all the excitement of the tea parties have died down, we must analyze the important questions raised by effects of the gatherings.What did they accomplish? Did we see any new political themes or ideologies emerge?

Personally as someone who lives in a place that can be called Obamaland, I love the idea of all people but especially conservatives and independents gathering to voice their frustrations with our system of big government taxation and the current economic crisis. As I watched news coverage of the tea parties I felt not so alone in my conservative world anymore. I was suddenly invigorated after what seemed to be a long two years of punch drunk Kool Aid Obama campaign rallies. It was like Obama Seasonal Affective Disorder. What I did find troubling was the coverage of the tea parties by the MSM- mostly CNBC and CNN (I no longer watch those networks except to watch the Lou Dobb’s Show on CNN).

I did not attend a tea party but from what I have heard there were a wide range of participants from various political and racial backgrounds.

So why did the media assume that every tea party goer was “tea-bagging” and a right wing nut? What’s wrong? Only liberals can protest now? Have you seen Medea Benjamin from Code Pink?

Is this a Left Wing Nut???

Medea Benjamin. Is this a Left Wing Nut???

What happened to the media’s love of grassroots organizations and people speaking their minds? The MSM attempted to marginalize the gatherings by saying they were fueled by FOX NEWS and right wing radicals.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) got on the tea party hater bandwagon and denied that the tea parties were a grassroots movement:

This [tea party] initiative is funded by the high end — we call call it AstroTurf, it’s not really a grassroots movement. It’s astroturf by some of the wealthiest people in America to keep the focus on tax cuts for the rich instead of for the great middle class.

And since we are on the subject of liberal hypocrisy, where was our “Dear Leader” Barry Obama???
I thought Barry loved parties. I thought he was the “people’s president”. Barry loves the crowds and the adulation.

So where was Barry? He said he would listen to the voters. Wasn’t the tea party in Washington D.C. the perfect place for him to show up and take questions just like he does during those town hall meetings that he loves so much?
What’s wrong Obama?
Was our grassroots party not good enough for you?
I am sorry but we tried to get rapper Jay-Z to do a concert for us but he was too busy helping Chris Brown get through his court trial.

Something tells me that Barry did not show up to the tea parties because the crowds were not peppered with his adoring fans.

So much for accountability and transparency. 62 million people voted for John McCain. That is a lot of people that did NOT vote for Obama. I hate to break it to you President Obama, sometimes in life not everyone will like you. A real leader would have addressed those people and said something to show that you understand their issues.


Meanwhile I leave you with a video clip from Keith Olberman lap dog Rachel Maddow. I had no idea that Rachel liked tea bagging so much.

MSNBC has lost all credibility in my opinion.

    Hi Afrocity! It’s disgusting to see how the MSM & their collaborator, the Dem establishment, has misrepresented hard-working, sincere Americans who are expressing their right to protest. The media distortion and oppression–in the name of “the people,” really is starting to look more and more like fascism. And the irony of Pelosi talking about astroturfing, after Axelrod perfected it in order to dominate the internet, smearing Clinton and promoting BO, is beyond offensive. I have no respect for the lot of them anymore. Now that I know where you are, I’ll check in here more often (and please do the same at TC, we miss you).

    Hi fif, that one clip with the CNN reporter and the man in Chicago was so disgusting. When will the MSM wake up and see that their job is to report the news and not shape it.

    I can’t believe that people can actually watch MSM or CNN any more and take it seriously. They might as well watch the first 5 minutes of Leno or Letterman for their daily news and call it a day. Just as the Obama train will derail, the left networks will be right there and have to make radical changes to survive.

    I’m sure Rachel M really found out the meaning of tea bagging from watching Olbermann and Mathews in the dressing room!!

    Hey — here’s some footage of the San Francisco Tea Party. The local news media said a few dozen people showed up – they wanted it to sound small. A lot of people were there !!

    BTW — this comment from above – I’m sure Rachel M really found out the meaning of tea bagging from watching Olbermann and Mathews in the dressing room!!

    Too f’ing funny !!!!

    • afrocity Says:

      SimoFish that is great I love that SF had a party was Nancy invited?

      And yes Manbearpig I am sure Rachel saw Olberman in a three way with Mathews and Tucker Carlson.

    Code Pink used to be in the tank for Barry — I think the kool-aid is wearing off for them.

    • afrocity Says:

      Medea was on O’Reilly recently because she does not support Obama calling for the surge in Afghanistan.

  6. DYB Says:

    I think Obama saying he doesn’t even know what these teaparties are is akin to Bush saying a few years back that those hundreds of thousands of anti-war protesters were nothing but a “focus group.” Obama is dense and he’s out of touch, and he has no idea (because the media is in effect sheltering him from the truth) that there’s a steamroller coming towards him. It’s like that scene in “Austin Powers” with Austin on a steamroller and a cop stands in front of him screaming “Nooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!” as the vehicle very very slowly creeps towards him. (See that scene here: Maybe that’s good for us in the long run. When he finally gets run over he won’t know what hit him.
