Finally. They stark freaking out. They’ve been warned for over a year now and they are just now realizing the damage that has been done and will continue to be done to their cause. They’re freaking the hell out:
The organizers of some major Florida tea party groups, for instance, on Thursday morning released an open letter to Congress and President Barack Obama declaring they ?stand in stark opposition to any person using derogatory characterizations, threats of violence, or disparaging terms toward members of Congress or the President.?
FreedomWorks must have some bad internal polling suggesting the jig is up. I call bullshit on this whole “derogatory characterizations..or disparaging terms toward members of Congress or the President”. If they were serious about this and not just trying to get some good press they’d be kicking everyone with a racist sign out of their rallies. They won’t. They can’t. If they eliminate the hatred they won’t have a movement. It is powered by hatred, racism, and violent undertones.
Until action follows press releases, we’ll file this under damage control as duly noted.
