St. Louis Group Peddling Tea Party Racism Fable

Remember Elston K. McCowan?  He was one of the men charged with assault and interfering with police on the night black conservative Kenneth Gladney was beaten by a crowd of SEIU thugs in St. Louis.  Now, he’s back as one of the organizers of a racially-charged, anti-Tea Party event.

The publicity materials for the event, Islamophobia: Tea Party as the New Klan?, appear on the Gateway Greens web site and falsely paint Tea Party members as racists:

Hostility toward Islamic and Middle Eastern people is growing like a social cancer. The Tea Party is spreading an ideology of intolerance that has contributed to a violent attack in St. Louis, countless victimizations of US Muslims, and murders in Tucson.

This is not new. Racism and fear of different cultures were part of America long before the country came into existence. Bigotry which festers below the surface erupts during times of economic collapse. But just as narrow-mindedness has long been a part of US culture, so has resistance. Come join us to look at the current wave of xenophobia and how your friends are organizing to combat it.

Of course, nothing could be further from the truth.

When it comes to hate and racism, no one in the Tea Party Movement has faced charges of beating up people who do not share the same political views, and no one in the Tea Party Movement has engaged in the kind of vitriol Jim Hoft highlighted in a July  BigGovernment article that included the video (below).  The video shows McCowan standing next to a speaker at an NAACP event and laughing at his racist remarks aimed at Gladney.

When it comes to racism in St. Louis, the event scheduled for Feb. 2 is already emitting the same sort of race-bating stench as events sponsored by Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.  It has no basis in fact and banks on lies and misinformation to further the group’s organizational objectives.

Crowd of 14,000 Tea Party Patriots Rally in St. Louis

An estimated 14,000 people from across the country rallied in St. Louis Sunday afternoon for the Midwest Region 9-12 Rally under the Gateway Arch.  For those of you who missed it, the video below captures the flavor of the rally.

The list of speakers was long and included, but was not limited to, the following:  Dick Morris, author and Fox News contributor; Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa); Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.); Dana Loesch, conservative talk show host (“The Dana Show”) and St. Louis Tea Party co-founder; Bill Hennessy, St. Louis Tea Party co-founder; Dr. Gina Loudon, conservative talk show host (“The Dr. Gina Show”); Mike Flynn, BigGovernment.com editor-in-chief; Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit; and The Sounding Fathers provided music for the event.

Congressman Rusty ‘Rubber Stamp’ Carnahan Runs from Question About the Ground Zero Mosque

Sure, Democrats are all about transparency, except when they know their answers will fly in the face of common sense and what most voters want. Such is the case in the video above which shows Adam Sharp of SharpElbows.Net trying to get U.S. Rep. Russ “Rubber Stamp” Carnahan (D) of Missouri’s 3rd Congressional District to describe where he stands on the Ground Zero Mosque issue.  Not surprisingly, Carnahan opted to run for the cover of his big black SUV in much the same manner as he’s dodged repeated opportunities to debate his Republican challenger, Ed Martin.

UPDATE 8/25/10 at 12:21 p.m. Central: Jim Hoft leads with the story that the Carnahan “firebombing?”  Yes, the same one about which Dana Loesch had so many questions.  Hat tip:  The Dana Show

Insider: Global Warming Consensus Never Existed

The National Post is reporting that a prominent climate scientist and insider at the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change misled the press and public into believing that thousands of scientists backed its claims on man-made global warming.

The Canadian publication cites Mike Hulme as stating in a recent academic paper that the actual number of scientists who backed that claim was “only a few dozen experts.”

So I’ve been right all along:  GLOBAL WARMING IS A MYTH or, stated more succinctly, it falls under the category, GLOBULL WARMING, and means that the INCONVENIENT TRUTH SERUM worked and Al Gore’s The Warmin’ Church is well on its way to imploding.

Obama Administration Working to Disarm Israel?

Israel National News is reporting today that the United States is working with both Egypt and Russia to rid Israel of its nuclear weapons, as part of a comprehensive plan to neutralize Iran’s nuclear power.  If true, this implications are enormous.

This news, courtesy of Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit, dovetails perfectly with the revelation that surfaced almost two years ago about the inclusion of Israel in Barack Obama’s Seven Mystery States Coin Collection developed almost one year ago.  As depicted on one side of the collection’s State of Israel coin (shown above), President Obama sees no future for the Jewish State.

Ernesto ‘Ché’ Guevara Subject of Music Video

I love to point out the idiocy of those on the Left who point to Ernesto “Ché” Guevara as a hero when, in reality, he was something completely different.  In a Feb. 6, 2009 post, I quoted Dr. Dr. Douglas Young from a piece he wrote for the Macon (Ga.) Telegraph:

The real Guevara was a reckless bourgeois adrenaline-junkie seeking a place in history as a liberator of the oppressed. But this fanatic’s vehicle of “liberation” was Stalinism, named for Soviet dictator Josef Stalin, murderer of well over 20 million of his own people. As one of Castro’s top lieutenants, Che helped steer Cuba’s revolutionary regime in a radically repressive direction.

Today, thanks to Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit, I learned of Steve Pichan’s new music video, “You Don’t Know ‘Ché’,” that sets the record straight about the now-dead murdering revolutionary whom many refer to simply at “Ché” (pronounced “chay”).

If you agree with Dr. Young, Hoft and me that “Ché worship” needs to end, put your beliefs into action with an alternative to the Ché fashions so often seen in public today.  Inspired by the anti-drug message made famous by President Ronald Reagan’s wife, Nancy:  “Just Ché No!” merchandise sends a message the world — especially young people — need to hear.

Obama Visit Brings Back Not-So-Special Memories

The last time President Barack Obama visited a Saint Louis-area high school, I was there.  Outside Arnold High School.  Almost 11 months ago.  Marking what I had labeled his “First 100 Daze”  in office.  Tomorrow, I plan to be outside — or, at a minimum, somewhere nearby — Saint Charles High School when #44 comes to talk about health care reform.

Why?  Because the mood, evident in the videos below which I produced after spending the day amidst well-known national tea partiers like Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit fame and Dana Loesch of Dana Radio (and so much more), is always energetic around a presidential visit.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Be advised the two videos above represent my first attempts at producing protest/rally/activism videos.  I’ve made more than three-dozen more since then.
