Yesterday Bob Owens at Big Government reported that Think Progress, a far left blog, used manufactured tea party signs to create a video tagging Tea Party members as racist:
Do you remember the abortive “Crash the Tea Party” movement? It was the brainchild of a liberal that explicitly called for progressives to commit fraud in order to attempt to discredit the Tea Party protests.
At Pajamas Media we covered the abortive effort extensively, and made note of the very real bigotry the Crashers unwittingly revealed… in themselves.
This morning, I came across this video from Think Progress:
…Think Progress stitches together a series of posters they claim belong to Tea Party protesters.
Really, Think Progress?
Did you not think we’d remember the amusing signs your fellow liberals created for their little abortive “Crash the Tea Party” stunt in Boston? Let’s just say that some were more amusing than others, and some just showed pathetic and angry progressives often are.
There is an old saying that you’re entitled to your own opinions, but not your own facts.
Early Today Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit connected the dots and traced the video straight back to…guess who? Obama!

So why would a leftist website put out such an obviously doctored video in order to smear the tea party movement?
The Center for American Progress(CAP) is a George Soros-funded initiative. It was founded by former Clinton chief of staff John Podesta. Think Progress is one of the CAP’s blogs that “provides a forum that advances progressive ideas and policies.”
According to Discover the Networks, after Barack Obama was elected President in 2008, CAP served as perhaps the most influential organization advising the new administration. Among Obama’s leading advisers were John Podesta and at least ten additional CAP experts.
Last week the NAACP announced that they would pass a resolution that calls upon “all people of good will to repudiate the racism of the Tea Parties, and to stand in opposition to its drive to push our country back to the pre-civil rights era.” Two days later Think Progress released its fraudulent “racist” tea party video.
It makes you think that these radical leftist groups might be coordinating their attacks on the tea party patriots… possibly from the White House. Now, wouldn’t that be shocking?
It seems that with Obama’s support quickly failing, the White House believes its only option to save the November elections for the Democrats is to smear the Tea Party as racist.
And hey, if it has to be a little fraudulent and a little manufactured, why not? Its for the good of the people.
