The New York Times and Washington Post have pulled one of their little stunts again.
They ran a story about an average American woman who decided to start her own movement to counteract the Tea Party Movement. And guess what! She started a massive new American movement composed of just average, questioning American Joes and Janes. Using her vast creative abilities, she called it “The Coffee Party”.
The Times was quite astonished at the shear American-ness of this woman and her legions of followers. From all over the country, average Americans – plain folk like you and me – are standing up for what they believe in. Average Americans all over the country are getting together with their friends and neighbors to push for Obamacare, to quietly and respectfully gather in support of the President. And to remind everyone that the government is not our enemy – it is simply the expression of our collective will.
Only it turns out it is all a fake. A fake movement, given life by Obama activists, adverstised in the Times as if it were a serious movement.
It’s pathetic. It’s funny. That the New York Times should stoop this low – to the point of purposely covering up almost everything that could be known about this woman and her “movement”.
The Times is now an organ that covers up the news and keeps you from being fully informed.
It had nearly 40,000 members as of Monday afternoon, but the numbers were growing quickly — about 11,000 people had signed on as fans since the morning…
The slogan is “Wake Up and Stand Up.” The mission statement declares that the federal government is “not the enemy of the people, but the expression of our collective will, and that we must participate in the democratic process in order to address the challenges we face as Americans.”
Local chapters are planning meetings in cities from Washington to San Antonio to Los Angeles (where there have been four in the last month.) The party (coffeepartyusa.org) is planning nationwide coffee houses for March 13, where people can gather to decide which issues they want to take on and even which candidates they want to support…
“We’re not the opposite of the Tea Party,” Ms. Park, 41, said. “We’re a different model of civic participation, but in the end we may want some of the same things.”
Ah, but here is what is really happening. Read William Jacobsen’s take down of this fake movement. It is just a Democratic party deception. More deception from the Democrats. Hmm.
In fact, a simple internet search (which the NY Times apparently is not capable of doing) reveals that Park organized the Coffee Party for the specific purpose of undermining the Tea Party movement.
Park is a former Strategy Analyst [Park’s Linked In page has been taken down, here is a cached link] at the NY Times who was one of organizers and operators of the United for Obama video channel at YouTube:
The author of the Times article called Jacobsen to complain that she really disclosed everything there was to disclose in her article. Sure. Take a look, folks. Did she tell you that Park was a former New York Times employee? Did she tell you that Park has long been active in support of Obama?
Here are some of the Coffee party leader’s tweets:
Park’s Twitter history leaves no doubt as to her hatred of the Tea Party movement, and the formation of the Coffee Party as a counterweight:
