Think Progress Racist Tea Party Video a Fake

Think Progress incorporated clips of a Tea Party video of an impostor who pretended to be a member in order to discredit the movement as a racist into a video of their own to show that the movement is racist.

“Confederate Yankee” Bob Owens documents that Think Progress incorporated clips of a Tea Party video of an impostor who pretended to be a member in order to discredit the movement as a racist into a video of their own to show that the movement is racist.  The whole thing makes my head hurt.

    The economy is a shambles, unemployment is still 2 points higher than the trillion dollar stimulus was supposed to allow, the national debt is exploding, and the Gulf of Mexico is turning into a toxic hydrocarbon soup… it’s no wonder ThinkProgress wants to talk about imaginary racist boogeymen.

    Gee, I wonder where all of the liberal OTB commentators have gone? Don’t seem too keen on discussing the rampant hypocrisy and deceit from the hard left that has been PROVEN yet again , I guess.

    Sorry, Juneau. I got as far as “Confederate Yankee Bob Owens documents” and didn’t bother to click the link. Half the time he’s mind-boggleingly wrong, the other half he’s lying. My life is too short for either option.
