There has been a disturbance in the force.
Lefties in a twist.
I love it.
Over at the Daily Kos there is a top rated recommended diary written by a poster named Oilwellian who seems to have a big problem with Erick’s new job as a political commentator at CNN and would actually like to see him lose that job.
So angry they are.
CNN Joins the Tea Party?
Sun Mar 28, 2010 at 11:22:46 AM PDT
I just completed and published a new video, CNN Joins the Tea Party? While America was focused on the push to pass health care reform, CNN pulled a fast one. They hired Erick Erickson, the owner of Redstate.com, a blog that supports and encourages the Tea Party activists and their revolution. He wasn’t just hired to give an opinion as we see with most political advisors on cable news. Erickson will be appearing on John King’s USA show on a daily basis. Fortunately, because of the Tea Party unrest we’ve been witnessing over the past couple of weeks, CNN has been easing Erickson into the show, at least until the tensions die down. We’d like to put a stop to CNN’s efforts to legitimize the Tea Party and giving it a national microphone on a major cable news network.
Oh my….someone isn’t a happy little bunny today.
Someone was so angwy that they even enlisted some help from another pwogwessive.
If you Twitter on a regular basis, then you know my good friend Shoq who is a leader of the progressive dialogue there. He helped me produce this video to bring attention to what CNN has done, and educate people about Erick Erickson’s agenda.
Erick’s eeevil agenda…
Bwah ha ha ha haaaa…BWAH HA HA HA……(evil laugh)
What does this Shoq fellow have to say …?
Quite a bit. Not a RedState fan apparently.
The right has screwed up this nation too thoroughly for us to just acquiesce to CNN giving a platform to the latest overrated stooge of concorporate hegemons. As the past few years have proved, they own or control most of this nation where it counts, and even when progressives score gains (as we just did with Health Care Reform), there is still a huge question mark hovering over the future of the United States. A recovering economy will not mask the near-kleptocratic nature of what our modern predatory-capitalist-system-run- amok has become.
Through one of many proxies like Redstate, the corporate and conservative elites use massive private funding networks to distribute professionally crafted propaganda masking as “grass roots” efforts.
Their work is designed to prey on the emotions and fears of an almost fundamentalist fervor amongst the ignorant Teahadist soldiers they are whipping up across the nation. The primary goal is to convince these gullible—or just rich, mean, racist, or stupid—people, that the administration that inherited the burden of fixing the economic malaise they created, are actually the people who caused them in the first place. And when you have a 24 hour news channel (Fox News) devoted to such efforts, it’s really not all that hard to sell such foolishness to the proles.
This professionally-crafted and marketed lying has gone on far too long—and it’s wrecking this nation. And yet, as I type this, the US Chamber of Commerce is gearing up to spend more millions of dollars in local elections. Precisely the kind of spending secured with the kind of right-wing propaganda that HumanEvents, Redstate, and Erick Erickson represent (often literally).
Scathing it is.
Damn…I wish I thought of that.
We’re all Teahadists….chortle..(snicker)
I love it.
I never really knew what radical ultra right winger Erick was and how dangerous this site is until I watched the video below.
I’m seriously thinking of closing my account here.
You guys are crazy.
Go to the dark side not.
