There are so many real international socialist affronts to American freedom and prosperity today that Tea Party and Town Hall folks need not drift off into crackpot theories or racial divisions in their search for something to oppose.
Ninety-nine percent of citizens up in arms over the destruction of their nation are good, honest, decent average citizens who have not a racist bone in their bodies. But that is not to say that there are no racists, anti-Semites, 911 Truthers or White Supremacists lurking around the fringes of the patriot movement.
Crackpots are found in every group of any size. Just look at Nancy Pelosi. If we paint all Democrats on the basis of crazy-as-an-outhouse-rat Nancy Pelosi, we’d have to stick all Democrats in a rubber room.
But when Tea Party folks find a crackpot in their midst, they are pretty quick to denounce them, kick them to the curb and move on.
A few weeks ago, patriot organization ResistNet, owned by Republican organization Grassfire, erred in naming a group operating under the names Wag the Dog 2010 and Network America as their “partner” for the precinct strategy.
A few days later, ResistNet National Director Darla Dawald removed those “partner” links from the ResistNet site stating - “Based on some troubling information that has come to light on Jim Condit and the Wag the Dog organization we are no longer associated with them. Thanks.”
Dawald had become aware of the man behind the “partner” organizations, Jim Condit Jr. from Cincinnati, Ohio.
Immediately upon learning the background on the man behind the precinct front groups, Dawald withdrew partnership between her organizations and Condit, who has an internet full of crackpot conspiracy theories, “Zionist” attacks, Hitler apologies and anti-Semitic rants.
While Condit was promoting a legitimate strategy, via patriotic sounding names, and had even tricked a major patriot group into promoting his front groups, he was really promoting something much less American and it all came to an abrupt end once Dawald found out who and what was behind the patriotic sounding organizations.
The patriot movement is so vast and involves so many citizens across the country that it is all but impossible to keep all crackpots away, until they rear their ugly heads.
The key is denouncing and distancing the minute they rear their ugly heads and Dawald wasted no time distancing her organizations from Condit the minute she became aware of Condit’s online antics.
Other than avoiding such missteps to begin with, that’s the best anyone can do.
Tea Partiers were accused of “racial slurs” as members of the Congressional Black Caucus were heckled by a gauntlet of Tea Party protesters outside the Capital building, on their way in to vote for socialized medicine.
But video tape of the heckling appears to demonstrate that those members of the Black Caucus lied about those “racial slurs.” The heckling was not aimed at their race, but rather at their anti-American agenda of Marxism. Most Tea Partiers know that both the Congressional Black Caucus and Congressional Progressive Caucus are legislative arms of the Democratic Socialists of America. It’s not too hard to connect the dots after that…
It’s not the skin color that Tea Party folks oppose, it’s the Marxism…
Still, in order for the patriot movement to remain purely patriotic, they must carefully distance themselves from any individual or organization that is not purely patriotic at the core.
And then, when ACORN and SEIU members masquerade as Tea Party folks in order to cause trouble, they are easily identified and debunked.
I applaud Darla Dawald’s fast action in distancing her organizations from Condit and his front groups. As my dear friend and fellow writer Kelleigh Nelson recently wrote, all patriot organizations must be on the watch for infiltrators and front groups of all sorts.
The patriot movement is on the verge of making history, as the people unify in opposition to the leftists running Washington, DC. They must remain vigilant in the effort to keep their movement and organizations purely patriotic, or the movement will be painted with the broad brush of racism, which only applies to an extreme few who are no more welcome in the patriot movement than anywhere else.
