NAACP Joins With Shameless Liars at Think Progress to Smear Tea Party

In July, the dishonest far left hacks at Think Progress were caught manufacturing a fake racist tea party video.

Bob Owens reported at Big Government that the far left Think Progress blog was using liberal-manufactured signs from Crash the Tea Party as evidence of tea party racism.

Do you remember the abortive “Crash the Tea Party” movement? It was the brainchild of a liberal that explicitly called for progressives to commit fraud in order to attempt to discredit the Tea Party protests.

At Pajamas Media we covered the abortive effort extensively, and made note of the very real bigotry the Crashers unwittingly revealed… in themselves.

This morning, I came across this video from Think Progress:

…Think Progress stitches together a series of posters they claim belong to Tea Party protesters.

Really, Think Progress?

Did you not think we’d remember the amusing signs your fellow liberals created for their little abortive “Crash the Tea Party” stunt in Boston? Let’s just say that some were more amusing than others, and some just showed pathetic and angry progressives often are.

There is an old saying that you’re entitled to your own opinions, but not your own facts.

Right Klik pointed out that basically every scene in the Think Progress video was manufactured. The liberal blog even included video footage from 2006 – before there even was a tea party!

The Think Progress tape included a photo of this “racist” from a St. Louis rally. They forgot mention that this racist plant was kicked out of the rally.

So why would a leftist website put out such an obviously doctored video in order to smear the tea party movement?

The Center for American Progress(CAP) is a George Soros-funded initiative. It was founded by former Clinton chief of staff John Podesta. Think Progress is one of the CAP’s blogs that “provides a forum that advances progressive ideas and policies.”

According to Discover the Networks, after Barack Obama was elected President in 2008, CAP served as perhaps the most influential organization advising the new administration. Among Obama’s leading advisers were John Podesta and at least ten additional CAP experts.

But, the fact that Think Progress is a horribly dishonest leftist organization won’t stop the NAACP from joining with them to smear the tea party movement.
FOX News reported:

A new website sponsored by the NAACP and left-leaning media operations is seeking videographers and bloggers who will search out “racism” and “extremism” among Tea Partiers. will feature tweets, interviews with people at rallies, blog entries and a picture of a t-shirt they say someone spotted at a rally that reads “Blacks own slaves in Mauitania, Sudan, Niger & Haiti.”

The site, sponsored by the NAACP, Think Progress, New Left Media and Media Matters for America, will monitor “racism and other forms of extremism within the Tea Party movement. We call on the Tea Party to repudiate extremists among their ranks and join in civil dialogue with all Americans.”

The NAACP really ought to clean up their own racist side of the street before they start pointing any fingers.
