On the Right Side: Liberals, leftist media spoon-feed convenient info

I'm getting motivated. The Tea Party season is heating up, and all the events that I know of are predicting three to four times the attendance from last year. I'm bringing 10 people; last year I brought one.

But just as predicted, the liberal, secular left is already planning to do everything it can "" using every sleazy trick in the book "" to make Tea Party events look bad.

There is actually a website that provides various strategies to disrupt these events. Some of the tactics include misspelling signs, making vulgar or racially oriented signs, and shouting vulgar chants. Remember the woman who wrote a letter to the editor two weeks ago? All her claims seemed to be suspiciously similar to what the website suggested doing.

All they are trying to do is attract media attention, and the mainstream media will be happy to oblige.

My advice would be to hold these protest events on private property if at all possible. That way these clowns can be asked or told to leave. Also, make sure that you and others are right there when they are being interviewed by unprofessional, leftist reporters looking for a good story.

We have to let them know that these people are in no way part of the decent people who are trying to take this country back and have it become a morally, constitutionally based country once again.

Last week, I was attending a Hartwick College lacrosse match and asked a friend if he was going to any of the upcoming Tea Party events. I was disappointed when he said he was an independent and didn't want to be a part of anything as radical as these groups. Sadly, when asked, he said that he had not been to one. This meant that he received his information from only biased, leftist sources, or what the mainstream media told him to think.
