"Can liberals start their own tea party?" was a Washington Post headline on Friday—and it's a good question!
Given the diverse, open nature of the TP movement, a lot of confusion exists..and room for false groups certainly exists. Some have been identified, and certainly affected the 2010 election adversely.
Three of the biggest Net outlets for rapid info dissemination are Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
Huffington Post and Rolling Stone are already promoting Rebuild the Dream.com.
For Tea Party people:
As a starting point to un-do Van Jones' plan, a FLOOD of simple expose' messages by individual members on Twitter might say something like:
#RebuildtheDream is more #VanJones Left-wing #Obama style failure...do NOT confuse w/ conservatives. #FF #tcot #Patriots #RT pls
People with better resources than I have should hit them through Facebook, YouTube, and public blogs too.
Tea Party Nation is working on a few things to help with a counter-attack. Soros' money affords him a great deal of advertising leverage. This is what concerned (and concerns) me about new Tea Party sites and organizations popping up and wanting donations.
Who are they? Where did the come from? Who's funding them? Where is their money going? At least with the top three national organizations, they've been around since the beginning. When I see an advertisement on DrudgeReport for a tea party group no one ever heard of before and they want you to DONATE, two things come to mind.
1. Who paid for that Drudge Report advertising --- Drudge is expensive!!!
2. Who is behind this new group? Is it anyone who's been on the front lines? Have they been active in the past? Do you even know who is behind the group?
I have many concerns about new groups who seemingly pop up out of nowhere and are able to instantly start advertising on places like Drudge, TownHall, HotAir, etc. You are talking tens of thousands of dollars in advertising. And it seemed their main focus was getting donations. Who is funding their massive advertising campaign?
As for funding, Sherry, MoveOn.org has sent at least 2 emails so far to their membership, in the past 2 days calling for contributions.
To their 5 million members.. that's 10 million calls for contributions, in the past 2 days!.
The alliance includes the AFL-CIO, SEIU,, among others... Government funded unions.....George Soros is also mentioned prominently.
Financing would seem not to be such a big problem. Advertising will only increase their funding.
And citezens of the world.
Go to somewhere else on the planet will ya!
Or....respect our rights........Nevermind. Get out!
