Anyone in the Kansas City area who can’t make it out to Google Topeka tomorrow (or anyone who can and wants more) can come by the Kansas City Tax Day Tea Party in Kansas City, KS. The event if from 3pm to 9pm at the Community America Ballpark, admission is free, and donations will be collected for the Disabled American Veterans organization.
Info is available on Political Chips, including a partial guest list, which will include local radio host Darla Jaye and keynote speaker Apostle Claver Kamau-Imani from Raging Elephants, as well as directions from all around the area.
I should be able to make it to this one, so hopefully I’ll get some pictures to put up.

Just wanted to bump this post as a reminder. It’s less than a week away now, and it should be a big event!
Nice Deb also wants you to go, and you can’t say no to her. She also has noticed that there is a second Tea Party scheduled for April 15th in the Kansas City area, this one in Kansas City Missouri. Tea Party Patriots has the info on this one, which will be at the JC Nichols Fountain on the Plaza from 12-2. Anyone who is so inclined should be able to make it to both!

If you’re in the Kansas City area, you should go! I’m not sure if I’ll be able to make it, but I’m going to try to get there, and hopefully get some pictures.
Much ado has been generated by this new political phenomenon known as the “Coffee Party.” The Coffee Party is presenting itself as some kind of grassroots, genuine , common-sense response to the hatred, venom, and racism that form the core of liberals attempt to find in the Tea Party. In reality, it is an astroturf pseudo-movement created by an Obama supporter, dedicated to, well, supporting Obama, which has very little real participation but lots and lots of media hype.

Quinn Hillyer at the American Spectator calls for an all-out war on the mainstream media. The main point of contention here is an LA Times article attacking Ginni Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, for her political activism, apparently on the grounds that her activities constitute some kind of conflict of interest for Justice Thomas. Andy McCarthy at the National Review Online takes a pretty aggressive tone against the LA Times, and Hillyer supports his position. Read the rest of this entry »
Politico is reporting that the Democratic Representative from New York, Eric Massa, who recently announced his intention to resign amidst a sexual harrassment charge from a male staffer, is now claiming that the investigation was set up by the Obama administration because Massa didn’t vote for Obamacare.

The Left has been disparate to demonize conservative as violent and angry, ignoring violence and riots on the Left and blaming any incident of violence or terrorism on the Right. The most recent example of this can be found in the case of John Patrick Bedell, an obviously insane person who was killed whire shooting up the Pentagon. Despite the fact that he was a registered Democrat, was vehemently anti-Bush, and was critical of capitalism, the media worked to classify his as a right-wing extremist. The same tactic was taken when Andrew Joseph Stack flew a plan into an IRS building in Texas — despite his rantings against capitalism and organized religion, and in support of socialized medicine, the media again labeled him a right-wing extremist. This meme is well in line with the political narrative that people on the Right are somehow more unstable and prone to violence than those on the left. Read the rest of this entry »
Nice Deb comments on the irony of how MSNBC’s latest insanity — an idiotic rant by host Dylan Ratigan about how the Tea Party is evil, racist, homophobic, eats babies, etc. — has massively increased the network’s visibility. At least on YouTube.
This is what’s so nice about YouTube; it allows you to view these mutants on MSNBC without ever having to tune into their station. Which I avoid doing at all costs.
The video clip of Ratigan ranting insanely about the NAZI RACISTS at the tea parties went viral, and became the Most Viewed News/Politics video of the day. It even became the 26th most popular clip on YouTube as a whole.
Yes, the delicious irony. This clip has proven so popular, yet MSNBCs ratings continue to slide into the depths of Tartarus. Read the rest of this entry »
Nice Deb presents a comprehensive analysis on left wing groups seeking to copy the success of the TEA Party movement. Included are groups attempting to emulate the grassroots nature of the TEA Parties (through carefully organized and well-funded means), groups attempting to present themselves as “anti-Tea Party,” and groups that seek to capitalize on the name “Tea Party” and use it to represent left-wing groups and candidates, apparently in the hopes of fooling conservatives into supporting them (or to discredit legitimate Tea Party groups).
