Now The Teabaggers Are Coming For The TV Stations
We told you earlier this week that yet another Tea Party event was coming our way. Now we learn that the teabaggers will be taking steps to make sure they get the coverage they (think they) deserve.
There are plans to picket the Houston affiliates of ABC, CBS and NBC (Fox? Fox?) in "Operation Can You Hear US Now?" (See? The "US" can also mean the United States!)
From their announcement -- "Description: Obviously, the 'main stream' media are hard of hearing and seeing. About 2 million mad & angry taxpayers assembling in Washington, D.C. for the largest-ever (most well-behaved ever, most respectful ever) protest did not make it onto their radar screens (or our TV screens)."
Yes, the ol' two-million estimate. Which was partly taken from a misquote of a guy who was talking about the Obama inauguration. (See irony, examples of). And the definition of "most respectful" obviously now includes comparing your political opponent to Hitler.
So what should these non-Fox stations expect to see?
They need our help. Maybe we cannot repeat an assembly of 2 million mad & angry taxpaying patriots in one place, but surely those who longed to go and couldn't would love to be a part of Operation "Can You Hear Us Now?" I'll bet for every one patriot who went to D.C. there are 10-20 more who wished they could have been there as well.
Hey, tweet - email - message - call your local and national media favorites so we can get the word out even faster! Come October 17th, the MSM will certainly HEAR YOU!!! The only question is, will they listen?
The Facebook page is here.
Get ready, so-called "main stream" media!!! Your socialist-loving days are over!!
