Tea Party Confidential

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on March 23, 2010



There is a point where the medium and the message become one. No jokes please, about medium being something that is neither rare nor well done.

PG was listening to a Bloggingheads episode. The dueling wits were Ann Althouse and Matt Welch. There were some comments about tea partiers, and the
N Word . This cohabited with some thoughts PG had, and a post was inseminated.
The rest of the conversation had a few gems. At the 5:50 mark, Ms. Althouse said
“They’re just making up numbers, the numbers have lost all meaning… I fear for our country when we just don’t believe numbers anymore. Numbers can be just made up out of nothing.” Ms. Althouse is a tenured ( since “89) law school professor. And she just now sees that statistics are lies.
The husband of Ms. Althouse got on a bus, in Madison WI, sometime Friday. He rode 24 hours, sleeping on the bus, and arrived in Washington DC. The husband tea partied for a few hours, got on another bus, rode 24 hours, sleeping on the bus, and arrived back in Madison WI. This is where Ms. Althouse gets her inside information about the Killthebill crowd. Does anyone know how to Madison?

There were reports from Washington that “killthebill” protesters may have slipped in a couple of other choice phrases. On the eve of a vote about an incredibly important law, many news reports were focused on someone shouting the
N Word at John Lewis.
The attached video was posted at Rodonline, and says to listen closely at :12. When PG listened, all he heard was noise. This is not to say it did not happen, or that it is right or wrong, but it does say that this particular video does not prove anything.

Ann Althouse at blogginheads had a few more choice comments about this. She says the tea partiers are much more friendly and polite than they are given credit for. With a dark skinned man in the White House, maybe playing the race card is not a smart move anymore.
“very powerful people posing as victims is not a pretty sight, it’s a weird use of race”. As to the issue of *a few individuals in the crowd* shouting racial epithets, Ms. Althouse says “so what”.
It does seem interesting that such a big deal is made out of this on the day before a major vote. Is it not possible that some of the supporters of the bill did the epithet shouting? Just get near some reporters and microphones, and scream something disgusting as loud as possible. It will reflect poorly on your opponents.

    I remember my grandmother saying that the chicken that cackled first laid the egg. Maybe the reporter screamed the N word to have something to write about.

    No, and Rod does NOT say the word was said at :12.
    The video proves a crowd of ugly ill mannered 100% white protesters were shouting at 3 black congressmen. And if you’ve seen the signs the carry and the VIDEO of Barney Frank being called a “fag”, its not hard to imagine they were called the n word.

    And do you really really think Democrats would go out of their way to call b;lack congressmen the n word just to make Tea Partiers look bad? they already look outrageous. Oh and what about the video of Barney Frank being called faggot? are you going to dispute that actually happened?

    Your writings are obsessed with black men. It must be sexual. sad.
