Should anyone be terribly surprised by this?
Last summer, Democrats argued that the tea party movement was the AstroTurf creation of corporate groups. Now that the grass-roots conservative resurgence has emerged as a clear force on the right, the left is making a different case: that tea parties are simply the enemy.
To that end, the Agenda Project, a new, progressive group with roots in New York’s fundraising scene and a goal of strengthening the progressive movement, has launched the “F*ck Tea” project, which is aimed, the group’s founder Erica Payne wrote in an e-mail this morning, “to dismiss the tea party and promote the progressive cause.”
“”We will be launching new products in the next several months to help people all over the country F*ck Tea,” Payne told POLITICO. “Products like a Glenn Beck Bowl Buddy (Beck B Scrubbin) and others are perfect holiday gifts or just a great way to say, ‘I love you and our country’ to your spouse, friend or family.”
Wait, didn’t I just refer to a story this morning by ABC News about the loss of decorum in Washington? Of course, it’s these kinds of unhinged leftists that give rise to elected Democrats acting the part of a psychotic clown. Interestingly, the way I read it, what with all the products these nutters will offer for sale, it looks more to be about progressives engaged in *gasp!* capitalism, designed to bilk the witless progressive sheep out of even more money, similar to what Michael Moore and Noam Chomsky have done.
But, hey, imagine a Conservative group had come up with “f*ck progressives.” The Left would have howled like werewolves on crack. For conservatives, we’ll simply just highlight these wankers, and move on with our lives.
