Manufactured Rage?

The White House said yesterday that they believe the Tax Protest Tea Party's and the recent out cry over health care reform at local town hall meetings is manufactured? Are they kidding? Their let them eat cake, and head in the sand arrogance belies their belief that we are ALL STUPID SHEEP, but this is rediculous!

White House Brushes Off Health-Care Protests
-Wall Street Journal

Why is it that when ACORN quite literally buses in homeless people to the homes of AIG employees in Connecticut it's called community organizing and political action?

But when actual voters and actual tax payers show up to display their displeasure with proposed policy changes it's manufactured?

Obama knows all about manufactured rage, and here it is

Don't you love the outraged protesters admiring the homes before the choreographed protest begins? Don't you love that it looks as though there are more people from the media in the crowd than protesters? How did all those media people know to be there? and get such great footage? Do you remember seeing the reports on the nightly news? Those over produced sound bites that made the protest seem huge? Don't you love the glossy print protest signs they handed out?

If you can't connect the dots for yourself, then Glen Beck explains it plainly and factually here.

But when tens of thousands of people show up at tax protest across the country it gets zero coverage in the main stream media. Even though the tax day tea party's were organized, and like the ACORN AIG bus tour they knew where and when to be, there was no coverage!

And when Arlen Spectre holds a town hall meeting, the only coverage comes from cell phone cameras.

Where are the scripted chants? Where are the glossy protest placards? The white house can see that these are people merely reacting to what they hearing. These people are listening and considereing what they are being told, and when they reason that they are being lied to they react. Then they are dismissed as if the reactions were choreographed by a an organizer with a bull horn (like at the ACORN protests).

When did heads become tails?

More Pennsylvania town hall revolt here.
Another elected official jeered for what he says here.


  1. Great post!! I was at a TEA party organization meeting led by our obviously astroturf expert (he's a carpet cleaner... what more evidence do you need???). There were over 100 involved, motivated people.

    Ignore us at your own peril.

  2. The rage is "manufactured" by the misinformation, lies, and hate spread by Fox News, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and viral email campaigns that have no regard for the truth. I would be pissed off too if 1/2 of 1% of the bullshit that these propagandists said was true. Conservatives' recent organizing efforts are to be commended; their lies, deceit, and hypocrisy is shameful.
