It’s come to light that the people behind what is being billed as the “Fox News Channel Tax Day Tea Parties” are not the regular people with regular jobs organizing in a grass roots manner as they would have you believe. The Fox News personalities repeat, ad nauseum, the talking points about this unorganized grassroots movement. It turns out that the true organizers, besides Fox News, include FreedomWorks and Americans for Prosperity, a couple lobbying and public relations firms. And don’t forget about Glenn Beck’s $500 a plate fundraiser…

Note to TeaBaggers: Grassroots movements do not require lobbyists, public relations, fundraisers, “media” endorsement and promotion, etc. It’s called “astroturfing.”

  1. You’re efforts are futile. I love America and her freedom.
