Although there were heavy suspicions, yesterday’s coverage left no doubt that Fox News was actively promoting and leading the Tea Party movement. In the run-up to the events, it did seem odd that Fox News was giving so much free advertising to what should have been “unbiased coverage” of a news story.

But not only were the Fox News “reporters” stationed at various Tea Party locations, but the Alamo rally was lead by Glenn Beck and the Atlanta rally by Sean Hannity.

Can you even begin to imagine the outrage by the right if say… Charles Gibson or Wolf Blitzer were up on stage rallying the anti-war crowds during the Bush years?

Tea Party Nutters

An old yet politically misguided friend connected with me on Facebook the other day. I noticed that the person had joined one of those wacky “Tea Party” groups that you see Glenn ‘crazy eyes’ Beck promote as “bipartisan citizens groups” concerned over taxes, I suppose. Nevermind that 90% of them will be getting tax breaks under Obama’s plan, and only those making over 250k a year will go back to 1990’s levels. Were the 90’s so bad? I seem to recall the Clinton years as pretty darn good for everyone.

Usually these groups will have at least one person pretending to be a democrat feigning outrage over on whatever topic the rightards are currently outraged about. oh well maybe next meeting.

Clicking on their Photos from the local Tea Party tells the whole sordid tale, if you care to peruse. I’m posting a couple pics here to give you a taste of what’s in store for you in their photo album:

Turns out Obama is the antichrist, who knew?
