Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

TEA Party Patriots: BETRAYED?

It appears the group, TEA Party Patriots, may have been betrayed.

Snakes and Patriots?

As with all good and effective betrayals, it appears to have come from within and not without.

Mark Williams, most excellent Sacramento radio talk show host for many years (see my sidebar blogroll under California Links) believes that the TEA Party Patriots have been sold out by Fornicalia attorney Mark Meckler.

Mr Williams is no stranger to controversy himself. He was instrumental in the April 15th, 2009 Sacramento TEA Party; he took on MSNBC's Dylan Ratigan (making Mr Ratigan appear quite the slow, thuddish dolt he is), and called Islam on its placement of a mosque adjacent the Ground Zero site. He was called racist. Overlooked was the fact that he was correct in his umbrage over the mosque. I supported him then and I support him now.

The problem with Mark Williams is that, like myself, he tends to be truthful and refuses to couch his words in euphemisms or PC buzzwords/ -phrases. He is as blunt as he is cutting-edge and insightful.

Now, new information seems to indicate that the TEA Party Patriots are being "sold" to an unidentified individual. For a million dollars. With the understanding that the Patriots' membership individual informational lists will be included.


As previously reported, national Tea Party Patriots (TPP) leader Mark Meckler has secured an anonymous “donor” to finance Meckler’s buyout of the organization in what amounts to a hostile take over. Meckler has said that the money will go to the TPP local chapters but in a exclusive I can now reveal that the money will only be given to local chapters that turn the names and personal information of their entire membership over to Mr. Meckler.

On its face -- given, not knowing all the miniscule details -- this transaction tends to stink in a remarkable fashion.

There are HUGE questions to be asked here.

And, of course, there is more to the story. I intend to find out what is happening here.

I am sending an e-mail to Mr Williams so that he may be able to explain the necessary chronology and the inferences and outcomes. On any level imaginable, this does not look, sound or feel proper, moral or ethical.

Again, at first blush, it appears the TEA Party Patriots' organization has been hijacked by an individual with ties to the Left and with possession of a massive amount of personal information which could be provided, at leisure, to concerns directly opposite those of persons who signed up for the organization at its outset.

In two words: potential betrayal. Or as convoluted as Charles Lutwidge Dodgson?

More to come.

Not so big. Think smaller but as smarmy, arrogant, assumptive, betrayed, an attempt at power, an abrogation, a clique, an attempt to go beyond the standard.

An attempt to sell YOU down the river.

I have a good friend that is well connected within the TEA Party and I got this from him, name left out deliberately..

Fred, Mark Williams is wrong on this. The donation comes from a private citizen and not anyone connected to any political party. I can't say much more but just say I know on this one. Better than anyone in the country. Williams is angry at TPP because they criticized Tea Party Express and him.

Williams is so full of vitriol he posted Meckler's wife's name, home address and telephone number on his website. Mark has been getting death threats from wackos on the left and now it appears Williams has made it a vendetta. But someone's family is off-base and Williams should be called on it.

BZ, I have some close patriot friends on facebook that I will be linking to this blog piece (privately, of course). The best way to get this out is to share. I won't be sharing on my Wall, as I don't want trolls coming here and starting anything that muddies the waters in getting to the bottom of this.

This is outrageous and stinks to high heaven.

Something doesn't make sense... I wonder if this is yet another 'red herring' about the Tea Party to confuse folks ahead of the election???

Well, I'll take what Texas Fred's contact says to be valid. It makes sense that much of this may well be to confuse and disorient the Tea Party prior to the election.

Let's demand accountability from all.

The Tea Party movement isn't about leaders or parties: it is about individuals. If any organization looks like it is being co-opted you leave it and start a new one or just get rid of the leader and pick a new one.

Transparency and sunlight are the best disinfectants - any leader who cannot walk the walk, talk the talk needs to go. And if you are a donor you expect contributions to be made public.

That is transparency, and when it is avoided you call people on it. If you want a different kind of politics then you practice it.

Do as you Say.
Say what you Mean.
Mean what you Do.

I think a picture of The Last Supper would be appropriate.

I agree with NFO until its proven.

And that's my biggest point:

WHAT is so "hush-hush" about this?

LIGHT and EXPOSURE most certainly IS the best disinfectant.

Those of the TPP "admin": just be straight up and forthright. Name names. Amounts. Times. Dates. What IS the problem?

AJ, you have a great point.

This time it IS about individuals and do NOT let confusion like this keep ANY true Conservative from the ballot box! Never!

This could be huge trouble. My first thought: people tied to the Tea Party could lose their jobs if lefist employers decide to be anal.
