Here's another in my continuing exposure of the tea party movement as a media-created sham.
Andrew Breitbart had a tea party in Philly this weekend. This was billed as a national tea party event. How did he do? Well, as usual, Green Eagle brings you pictures showing the largest number of people that could be found:
Estimates of the number of people who showed up at this national event have now coalesced around the 300 range. That's it. And yet this event received wide attention from the "liberal" media, which are happy to collaborate with the right to give credence to the claim that these absolutely pathetic, synthetically generated demonstrations represent some sort of massive movement.
What makes this particular one even more than contemptible was that it was billed as a "diversity" event, to prove that teabaggers are not racists- something which is, of course, impossible, seeing as how they so clearly are. A number of the usual black and latino right wing sellouts spoke at this rally, but the organizers seem to have managed to attract a maximum of 15 minority citizens to their great demonstration of racial harmony.
And yet, if the press has its way, this minuscule group of lunatic right wing fanatics may well deliver control of Congress back to the people who nearly gifted us with a depression just two years ago.
