Advertising is very expensive these days. Many politicians often find themselves unable to afford adequate advertizing to get their messages out to the general public. That is why many believe that any press coverage, even negative press, is better than no press, as long as they spell your name right.
The Tea Party movement is finding that the more wacked out liberal Democrats denounce the Tea Party, the more free press coverage the movement gets. The more press coverage they get, even though it is largely negative, it appears to be causing more people to look into the Tea Party to see exactly who they are and what they stand for.
Every time California Rep. Maxine Waters (D) opens her mouth and tells the Tea Party to ‘go to hell’ many local Tea Party groups see an increase in inquiries. When Vice-President Joe Biden called them terrorists this summer, the number of people checking out the Tea Party took another jump.
Over this past weekend, actor Morgan Freeman was quoted as saying: “Their stated policy, publicly stated, is to do whatever it takes to see to it that Obama only serves one term. What underlines that? ‘Screw the country. We’re going to [do] whatever we can to get this black man outta here.”‘ When asked if the Tea Party’s motive could be purely political, Freeman dismissed the possibility saying: “It is a racist thing.” If the trend continues, this should once again spur more interest in the movement.
And as for Freeman’s assessment of the Tea Party, I’ve seen a number of Tea Party gatherings and many of them have blacks attending. The only racist things about the Tea Party are the accusers themselves. It’s usually racists that holler the loudest about others. Morgan Freeman clearly demonstrates his racist attitudes by declaring all those who hold a different political view than he does as being a racist.
The rantings and ravings by these and other wacked out Democrats have helped to build the Tea Party movement, whether they realize it or not. I’m sure the Tea Party thanks them for all of the free publicity and press coverage.
