Glenn ‘I Hate 9/11 Victims Families’ Beck’s 9/12 Astroturfing

Glenn Beck is promoting, politicizing and capitalizing on the deaths of thousands of Americans on September 11, 2001 with an upcoming event dubbed the 9/12 Project. Originally planned as a day of patriotism and unity, like that found after the terrorist attacks on 9/11, the so-called “grassroots” style events promoted by Glenn Beck have become anything but. Not only are the events now promoted as an outright attack on the Obama Administration, but it’s also come to light that it’s not a true grassroots movement at all.

The web site for the event, 912dc.org, is owned by FreedomWorks, led by former corporate lobbyist and Republican Majority Leader Dick Armey (R-TX). FreedomWorks is providing the funding and organization that makes this event possible, while Glenn Beck provides the promotion. You’ll notice many names similar to those found associated with the Tea Party astroturfing.

Gold Sponsor Tea Party Patriots is a website run by FreedomWorks staffers. When Tea Party Patriots list serv members objected to the 9/12 march symbol, they were rebuffed and told that all final decisions were made by FreedomWorks.

Gold Sponsor Our Country Deserves Better is a Republican PAC that also operates the Tea Party Express, a bus tour arriving in DC for the 9/12 march. Our Country Deserves Better/Tea Party Express, which has ran an advertisement comparing Obama to Hitler, is managed by the GOP consulting firm Russo, Marsh & Rogers.

Bronze Sponsors The Heartland Institute and the Competitive Enterprise Institute are phony think-tanks dedicated to churning out academic-appearing reports to discredit global warming. Like FreedomWorks, both organizations are funded by David and Charles Koch of the Koch Industries oil empire, one of the largest privately held companies in the world.

Bronze Sponsor American Conservative Union is run by David Keene, a lobbyist for a firm that represents private health care companies, including the insurer HealthFirst.

Bronze Sponsor The Senate Conservatives Fund is a Republican Party PAC run by Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC).

Other sponsors include The National Association for Rural Landowners, who made the case for a secession, followed by a violent civil war in a YouTube video; and FreeRepublic, a right wing forum that gave platform for the Holocaust museum shooter’s writings. Furthermore, as the tone has become more anti-government, several Republican politicians are scheduled to speak, including Rep. Tom Price (R-GA), Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN), Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-GA), and Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC).

Finally, take a look at what Glenn Beck thinks of 9/11 victim’s families:

BECK: You know, it took me about a year to start hating the 9/11 victims’ families. It took me about a year. Um, and I had such compassion for them and I really, you know, I wanted to help them, and I was behind — let’s give them money, let’s get them started, and all of this stuff. And I really didn’t — all the 3,000 victims’ families, I don’t hate all of them, I hate about, probably about ten of them. But when I see 9/11 victim family, you know, on television, or whatever, I’m just like, ‘Oh, shut up.’ I’m so sick of them. Because they’re always complaining. And we did our best for them. And again, it’s only about ten.

Glenn Beck & Fox News Promoting Tea Parties. Again.

Glenn Beck joined Fox & Friends this morning to promote another round of tea bagging to protest Barack Obama & taxes, which will be held on the 4th of July. Like previous tea parties, these are being organized by the lobbyist-run groups Americans for Prosperity and FreedomWorks, with the help of Fox News, of course. Fox News has even run segments with Gov. Mark Sanford (R-SC) to promote the tea parties.

So, why is Glenn Beck suggesting that people spend the 4th of July protesting what’s wrong with America? Last year (while Bush was still in office) he suggested, in an op-ed, that we should celebrate by not talking about our problems, but rather about what’s right with our country. He also suggested that the day be used to take a break from talking about “crooked politicians.” Is that an admission that Bush was a crooked politician, but Obama is not?

Fox News Promotes Tea Party 2.0

If you’re shaking your head in disbelief, you’re not alone… Today is the day for Tea Party 2.0, a public teleconference hosted by the Republican Governors Association (RGA). Greta Van Susteren hosted Gov. Mark Sanford (R-SC) to promote the event and Fox News also had the following advertised on air.

So, if you want to join a teleconference with Governors Mark Sanford and Rick Perry (R-TX), you know what to do…

Hannity Wrong – Garafalo Not Tea Bagged At Gig

Late last month Sean Hannity, upset about comedian Janeane Garafalo’s comments about the Tea Parties, predicted that tea baggers  planned “to give her a piece of their mind as a result of these disgraceful comments” – those comments being that Tea Party attendees were racist. Maybe they were out of tea bags, but there weren’t any protestors at her recent gig in Somerville, MA.

“If there are any tea baggers here, welcome, and white power,” she said to laughs, before darting into a commentary on thongs, Spanx and a 22-hour flight to Australia.

A Fox News Haiku

Ever since news broke about Obama’s criticism of Fox News and Tea Parties, Fox News, and Tea Baggers alike, have been up-in-arms calling Obama’s comments attacks or pot shots. The irony here is thick enough to cut with a knife… So, I make a little haiku that sums it up:

Fox can dish it out
Their attacks on Obama
But Fox can’t take it

Obama Strikes Back Against Fox News

At his Town Hall meeting in Missouri, Barack Obama responded to a direct question with some criticizing words of his own toward tea baggers and, a cable news channel that is, obviously, Fox News.

“When you see, you know, those of you that are watching certain news channels on which I’m not very popular, and you see folks waving tea bags around, let me just remind them that I am happy to have a serious conversation about how we are going to cut our health care costs down over the long term, how we are going to stabilize Social Security”

Tea Bagging the Tea Baggers

Predatory Angel Production, a gay adult entertainment company is asking people to tea bag the tea baggers on May 1, 2009. Participants who post pictures of their event are eligible for prizes including a year’s subscription to their magazines. The following is from the press release I received via email:

“I want the May first teabag event to be about gay marriage, environmental responsibility, corporate responsibility, immigration, better health care, and better schools.”

I don’t know how effective or publicised this event will be due to the nature of the company behind it, but I wish them luck. If you’d like more info on the event, email Aluria.

Fox News Upset About Tea Bagging Jokes

Apparently, it’s okay for Fox News to talk about “tea bagging,” but they cry foul when anyone else does. The following graphic and blurb are from the Fox News site.

Cable anchors and guests covered the anti-tax tea party protests across America by cracking a litany of barely concealed sexual references.

“Barely concealed sexual references” about a sexual reference made by Fox News personalities? You bet! I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if Fox News planned this:

  1. Use a sexual reference to promote Tea Parties
  2. Feign ignorance about its meaning
  3. Tea Party turnout is low across the country
  4. Play the victim and blame others for making jokes at their expense.

Tea Baggers Turned Away

I find this extremely funny… It turns out that Tea Party planners are having to come up with a Plan B and ,apparently, Plan C. Dumping Tea in the Potomac River is illegal, so Plan B was to move the dumping site to Lafayette Square, but protesters were turned away for not having a permit. They also didn’t have a permit to protest in front of the Treasury building… Time for Plan D?

Tea & Hypocrisy

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.”

Neil Cavuto Caught in Million Man Lie

Have you heard? Fox News is promoting Tea Party protests and will cover it extensively. The Internet was abuzz pointing out that Fox has not provided equal coverage for similar events that are not in line with the right wing agenda and that neither MSNBC, nor CNN, have promoted anything like this. Neil Cavuto went on the defensive and got caught in a lie.

Cavuto, like an annoying parrot, mimicked the Fox News “fair and balanced” slogan and stated that they covered the Million Man March, which took place in 1995. The problem is that Fox News wasn’t around then. FNC couldn’t be seen on TV until the following year. Nice try Cavuto.

Glenn Beck Comparison Ties Obama to 9/11 & Pearl Harbor

Never short of comedic material, Glenn Beck doesn’t short us on laughs this time around… In one breath, Beck’s actor portraying Thomas Paine makes a comparison of Obama and his economic policies to the bombing of Pearl Harbor as well as the planes crashing into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

“Your complacency will only aid and abet our national suicide. Remember, they wouldn’t dare bomb Pearl Harbor, but they did. They wouldn’t dare drive two planes into the World Trade Center, but they did. They wouldn’t dare pilot a plane through the most sophisticated air defenses in the world and crash into the Pentagon, but they did. They wouldn’t dare pass the largest spending bill in history, in open defiance of the will of the people*, but they did!”

What would the reasoning be behind such an absurd statement? Desperation. It’s a fear mongering tactic to try to gain support for their Tea Party protests and there is sure to be more to come as we get closer to April 15 and they realize that the streets will be as empty as their threats.

Fox News Promotes “Tea Party” Protests

Once again, stepping a big stinky pile of hypocrisy, Fox News breaks with its “fair and balanced” label and promotes so-called “tea party” protests. Upset with Obama’s decisions regarding the economy, Fox News has taken a clear stance against his administration, as if it wasn’t clear already… Also note the fact (see pic below) that Fox News has named the event after themselves, thus proving that they are not merely promoting the event, but also organizing it.
