On the front page of today's Washington Post is an article about the "energized 'tea party' movement" and their plans to channel funds and supporters to challenge both Democrats and Republicans that are against their conservative ideology. Since the election of President Obama, they have been on a relentless attack campaign to mislead the public.
They have new PACS and fundraising tactics. Help us fight against the tea bagger movement!
Why is it critical to stand up to them now? Because their beliefs are not just different than ours, they're discriminatory, destructive and dangerous. Pat Robertson of the 700 Club said, "I don't really believe that homosexuals want to get married. What they want to do is destroy marriage and some of the other things that we have in our society."
They exaggerate, exploit and are exasperating. At the "How to Take Back America" conference, Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ) said in reference to President Obama, "...he has no place in any station of government and we need to realize that he is an enemy of humanity." Enemy of humanity, eh?
If you donate $10, $25 or $50 to the Americans for Democratic, you know that we'll put the money to use opposing the treabaggers by lobbying for progressive issues, supporting liberal candidates and educating voters about real issues.
Help ADA stand up for our progressive values that are under attack.
