Breitbart lands the point that the smear campaign against the Tea Party is a set-up.
Those in the movement who are Hispanic or black are given the Clarence Thomas treatment: mocked, ridiculed and marginalized. The Democratic party cannot afford for minority groups to break from the pack, so they show that apostasy is met with high-grade ridicule. Those willing to withstand vile and hateful un-American taunts are some of America’s greatest patriots.The relentless running of stories up the media flagpole are clear evidence that the government and the press are not interested in dispelling the lies about the Tea Party movement. Despite this, the Tea Party image is maintained in proper perspective in the new media and on Fox News.
The press went straight to petrified Republican leaders like John Boehner and Michael Steele over the falsified “N-word” allegations, who dutifully offered apologies that they were not qualified to give. It was a set-up.
The government is committing soft thuggery on us and the media lies to us as part of that thuggery. It is the likes of Andrew Breitbart that keep the movement advancing and getting its message out in a proper and balanced way. He is the balance.
Here's the money paragraph:
The Democrats need to kill the Tea Party movement. They need to marginalize and demonize those who would stand up to their hardball, toxic and anti-democratic tactics. Their strategy is to bait and incite the Tea Party and to use whatever they can get to silence the awakening giant. They have failed, epically, and the American people now see these tactics for what they are. At long last, new people every day are beginning to understand the kinds of people we are dealing with here.This is a popular movement made up of mainstream Americans - people with families, jobs. According to polls more people in America equate themselves with the Tea Party than they do the Democrat or Republican party. Thus, the government and the media have chosen to try to marginalize the largest plurality of American citizens in the electorate by calling them violent and racist. That's tyranny.
