Look Out Tea Party! Here Comes Crash The Tea Party!

By Robert Paul Reyes

 

"Crash The Tea Party is becoming pretty well known already. Crash The Tea Party is an organization that is trying to end the way The Tea Party does things, and is setting out to end what it calls a fake grassroots movement.

tea partySo how does Crash The Tea Party plan on accomplishing their non-violent ending of The Tea Party? They have stated that they will do this, "By infiltrating the Tea Party itself! In an effort to propagate their pre-existing propensity for paranoia and suspicion... We have already sat quietly in their meetings, and observed their rallies." It seems that Crash The Tea Party is going to do things to make it seem like they are representing The Tea Party at rallies to further distance themselves from mainstream America." Read More

The "Crash The Tea Party" group is engaged in a noble mission: The destruction of the Tea Party! Unfortunately, I can`t participate in the infiltration of the Tea Party. As a Latino I would stick out like a sore thumb at a Tea Party shindig. I would immediately be accosted by Tea Party zealots, demanding to see proof of citizenship.

Actually I`m light-skinned and could pass for Caucasian, but I don`t speak redneck. My nuanced speech would betray me as a reasoned individual, and therefore not a Tea Party member.

In all seriousness the "Crash The Tea Party" group may be doing a disservice by giving tea partiers a cover for their hate speech. Every time a tea partier is caught on tape saying something outrageous at a demonstration, the Tea Party can claim he`s an infiltrator.

It`s not necessary for Crash The Tea Party to infiltrate the Tea Party to make them look stupid. The Tea Party doesn`t need any help looking stupid.

The Tea Party is a movement driven by hate, and it will soon implode. The Tea Party is a sinking ship, and I can only hope that Sarah Palin and her ilk will go down with the ship.
