Naomi Wolf Corrects a False Assumption

Read Naomi Wolf’s article. My comments follow the link.

Naomi Wolf Thinks the Tea Parties Help Fight Fascism — Is She Onto Something..? | News & Politics | AlterNet.

NOTES on the Tea Party – by China Rose

1) AlterNet ain’t very alter. Though the article is oozing with mainstream media assumptions, as least they published this. Maybe someone will learn a thing or two….
Viva Naomi W!

Think of the benefits of manipulating fed-up but undereducated citizens. You can…

2)… approriate and pervert the rhetoric of the American revolution (which, BTW, was against an EMPIRE) to serve America’s corporate masters. MAJOR switcheroo.

3)…turn the emphasis off of certain touchy subjects (the bailout, foreclosures, homelessness, offshoring, job loss, infrastructure meltdown, the demise of public education, posse comitatus. Katrina, Detroit, widespread violation of civil liberties, pollution, factory farming, GMOs, 9-11 and the NWO) and onto one SINGLE issue: the health care fiasco (which d could be easily cured by dismantling, or at least stepping on, Big Pharma and the medical establishment).

4) …make Obama the Hun seem like a “leftist” or “socialist” as he pursues the most aggressively right wing militaristic agenda in US history. An absurd notion beyond all imagining.

5) …funnel all the discontent into  Republican party cages.

6)…use racist code words to get the masses riled and rekindle any latent racism. The idea that Obama’s disastrous “leadership” has anything whatsoever to do with race is another corker. Obama’s policies are as white as any other Pres, maybe more so. The original purpose of the race card was to shelter him from any criticism — and it’s working for the Dems and libs. Perhaps the other purpose was to kindle discontent among those who have latent race issues, thus vindicating Obama by default. Provocateurs anyone?

For the record:

1) A goverment run by an elite is an oligarchy

2) A government in which the forces of the military, the government, ‘Big Religion” and corporations are merged to form a new and dangerous creation, and is usually accompanied by  corruption (bribes), tyranny (abuse of power) and dictatorship (an abusive chief exective), is known as fascism.

Don’t even think of getting me started on the inane “coffee parties” counterpoint.

“What a tangled web we weave…” et cetera.

  1. I’m glad you wrote about this, I hadn’t seen the Wolf interview until just now, but I have been questioning the entire Tea Party from the “left wing” point of view that we have been force fed.
    Coffee Partiers probably will make another few million for the Z diseased Star Bucks at best. I’m kind of threw with the left wing paradigm myself. Long time coming actually.

    • The Tea Party were originally independents and libertarians but were infiltrated by the Rape-publicans. They now serve a vital purpose — as a “right wing” force that opposes Obama, they appear to makes his policies seem “left” or “centrist” Whatever the h*ll that means! [Tony Blair and Bill Clinton were centrists / cuddly war-criminals]. As supposed “racists” — the Tea Party thus appear to disqualify and de-legitimize all opposition to the administration. Masterful disinformation! Machiavelli, take a bow!

      There IS no left wing in American politics. Most of the politicians seen as “left” over the last few years, turned out to be simply well-disguised Fascists…. or like Carter — a part-time Fascist. Even those Presidents seen as “left” domestically, were very “right” in their foregin policy. In fact, there’s only one party — the War Party. The US is addicted to war.

    • Naomi Wolf has the mainsteam creds that a gatekeeper site like alternet demands. She makes some good points. I really should enclose the article instead of linking it!
