As the events of the last weekend unfolded, allot hit the news about crackpots that went over the line. Be forewarned that the Lame Stream Media in coalition with liberal radicals will do just about anything to discredit us.
Many have condemned Islam as a whole because they are weak on exposing their own radicals. We don't want to fall into that trap.
Here are some of the tricks we fall for:
· On 9/12 at the march in DC, a young man was handing out preprinted signs that said "Bury Healthcare with Kennedy". I saw the guy handing them out and he had a big stack of them. Who in the Tea Party uses pre-printed signs or hands them out? The sign made the news and even the conservatives condemned it as insensitive. The sign was attributed to us (like the last guy holding the murder weapon when the police arrive).
· Our opposition is certainly willing to call someone's office pretending to be conservative and then making threats or racial slurs. The accusation against the Tea Party is just as damaging as the assault because the correction or retraction never makes the news and they know it. Have you ever heard one of these stealthy liberals calling Rush or Laura Ingraham?
· Many are adept at baiting you to incite your passion. Then when you’re angry, almost out of control, they turn on the cameras and the commentator (or Nancy Pelosi) claims that the crowd was out of control and driven to violence.
Last Sunday, in the midst of the rally on the lawn at the Capital, I engaged a couple of young people that wanted to debate. As the debates proceeded, I looked over my shoulder on several occasions to see someone's movie camera just waiting for the debate to turn bad.
Liberals have been at this stuff for years and they believe all is allowed to achieve their ends. They have way more practice at stealing the truth than you think.
In order to make sure that we are only responsible for our message and not for baited attacks from the other side, here are suggestions on how to handle it:
· Don’t take the bait! We all represent this country as patriots so respond like Gandhi!
· If you see someone that appears to be out of control, expose them! If they are running amok, they are not one of us. If you hear it, take their picture. Let’s identify them. If they are our extremists, we can expel them. If they are a liberal plant like Johnny Simpatico, we can let that be known as well.
We should not condone those actions any more than we should commit them and we should be the first ones to condemn them if they occur. Be on your guard: Watch for saboteurs!
