Rep. Schakowsky (D-IL) Calls Parties “Despicable’ and “Shameful”

Seems like the working Talking point to diminish the impact of the nearly 500,000 partispants in the Tax Day Tea Parties is to call the movement an Astro-Turf (Fake Grassroots) event  by saying they are being funded by BIG Business and New Corp.  Anyone who has been close to the city Planners is well aware that there was no funding form outside sources and gathering permits, obtaining insurance, and providing equiptment were left up to the volenteers at the lcoal level.  There has been no evidence preseinted that large corportaions have funded any of the Tea Party Events.  

The other talking point appears to be to call the partisipnats uneducated and misinfomred by those who woould benifit by big business legislations.  In additionan some congressman are saying that these tax day parties are a direct attack on the Obama administartion.  Most of the tea party footage that is available shows that the partisipants are upset with congress as a whole and how government is involved in the free market system.

While Protesters in left wind groups get dismissed for violnet acts because they’re ideologiy is in agreementment with the left, The Tea parties are being called, “dispicable and Shameful”.  Interestinly enough out of the 304 tea parties that data is available for there was one arrest.  Dispicable and Shamefuk indeed.

Schakowsky Statement on ‘Tax Day Tea Parties’
Schakowsky Calls Parties “Despicable’ and “Shameful”
CHICAGO, IL (April 15, 2009) – Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-IL, released the following statement in response to “tea parties” being held on Tax Day.   “The ‘tea parties’ being held today by groups of right-wing activists, and fueled by FOX News Channel, are an effort to mislead the public about the Obama economic plan that cuts taxes for 95 percent of Americans and creates 3.5 million jobs. It’s despicable that right-wing Republicans would attempt to cheapen a significant, honorable moment of American history with a shameful political stunt. Not a single American household or business will be taxed at a higher rate this year. Made to look like a grassroots uprising, this is an Obama bashing party promoted by corporate interests, as well as Republican lobbyists and politicians.”
