Video: AFL-CIO's Richard Trumka (Communist) says Tea Party making Government 'Dysfunctional'

Projection is the art of accusing your opponents of that that which you are actually guilty of doing. No one does this better than the far left. Communists, marxists, and socialists all lie incessantly because if they told the truth about their agenda, they'd lose too many mindless followers. In fact, it's almost as if their favorite commandment to disobey is the one about bearing false witness. The AFL-CIO chief Richard Trumka does that right here when he says the Tea Party is trying to 'make the government dysfunctional so they can tear it down' and that it's hard for (Obama) to deal with.

Consider the plans of Cloward and Piven from the 1960's (Cloward dead and Frances Fox-Piven still believes in it). The objective was to flood the government's welfare and entitlement roles so that - follow me here - the government would become dysfunctional so that it could be torn down. There is significant evidence that Barack Obama endorsed the Cloward-Piven strategy in his youth and based on what he's done to the economy since taking office, it's not a leap to say that he still does.

Check out this excerpt about Frances Fox Piven from DTN: 1983, Piven delivered the opening remarks at the Socialist Scholars Conference (SSC) in New York City, an event that commemorated the 100-year anniversary of Karl Marx’s death and was likely attended by a young Barack Obama. In her talk, Piven described Marx as the man whose ideas had enabled “common people” around the globe to become “historical actors.” She urged her listeners to “stand within the intellectual and political tradition Marx bequeathed,” treating it not as a “dead inheritance” but rather as a “living tradition—the creation of thinking, active people.” In subsequent years, Piven would appear at numerous additional SSCs.
Trumka is basically saying here that the Tea Party has apparently signed on to the Cloward-Piven strategy. This is projection on steroids. The first 45 seconds of this clip are rather innocuous but Trumka makes up for it at the end. Wow, just wow.

AP Compares London Rioters to Tea Party, then Scrubs

London is burning thanks to leftist rioters who would rather destroy their country than attempt to prevent it from being destroyed. The reason? The government has run out of money and the misery is trickling down. These thugs are no different than sports fans who riot after their team loses. However, that's not the story here. The story is that the AP quoted a rioter that compared what he was doing to what the Tea Party in the US is doing. Apparently, someone over at the AP thought better of making such a leap and scrubbed that quote. Comparing the Tea Party to rioters in the UK is almost like blaming the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords on Sarah Palin, despite the shooter listing the communist manifesto as one of his favorite books.

Via GWP, here is the relevant excerpt of what the AP published initially:
In the Hackney area of east London, hundreds of youths attacked shops and set fire to cars, leaving a trail of burning trash and shattered glass. Looters ducked into a small convenience store as the blackened shells of two cars burned nearby, filling plastic shopping bags with alcohol, cigarettes, candy and toilet paper.

“This is the uprising of the working class. We’re redistributing the wealth,” said Bryn Phillips, a 28-year-old self-described anarchist, as young people emerged from the store with chocolate bars and ice cream cones.

Phillips claimed rioters were motivated by distrust of the police, and drew a link between the rage on London’s street and insurgent right-wing politics in the United States. “In America you have the tea party, in England you’ve got this,” he said.
Uh, this guy perfectly exemplifies the kind of people the Tea Party is standing up against. Perhaps that's why the AP pulled the quote from its report. Let's see, the 'uprising of the working class' is code for communism. The 'redistributing (of) wealth' is the epitome of European-style socialism the Tea Party is rejecting. It then becomes indicting of his group that it's stealing food. Oh, and he's also a self-described 'anarchist' (like Bill Ayers).

HERE is a link to the revised AP report.

Just to show another source that posted the original AP report, HERE you go.

Here is video of the rioting via American Glob. See if you can spot the Tea Party brethren:

Video: Latest Rick Santelli Rant - 'BBB' Rating without Tea Party

Some people just flat-out shine when times are toughest. CNBC's Rick Santelli is one of them. In February of 2009, his rant on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange birthed the Tea Party. He's had countless righteous rants since then. He's at his best when he's fed up. He seems to make more sense the angrier he gets. This one might actually be a cut above. Here, he sticks up for the Tea Party in response to people like John Kerry, David Axelrod, and who call this a 'Tea Party downgrade.' Santelli asserts that if it wasn't for the Tea Party, our S&P rating would now be BBB instead of AA+.

He also makes easy work out of the guy who tries to debate him - Steve Lies. At the end, Lies looks apoplectic.
