About six minutes in, Colbert takes FreedomWorks to task over thier supposed “grassroots tea-party” movement. Ah yes, the White House is indeed wrong in thier assumption that regressive, conservative groups are staging a fake movement. (read: sarcasm)
I will say that I’m a moderate, though slightly to the left. I do hold some significant values that are considered right leaning though (such as gun control…I’m against it). I just am tired of watching CNN, FoxNews, and MSNBC give slanted views that are so obviously biased I can’t believe anyone watching is buying into thier agendas. Of course, the fact that so many on either side of the aisle do buy it is disconcerting. Brings to mind Churchill’s quotation about democracy.
I posted this because I love Colbert and Stewart as they take both sides to task when they attempt to be misleading. Also because FreedomWorks sponsered a “teaparty” protest on the 4th of July in a park nearby and at that meeting they told various homosexuals observing them that they hated them and were going to hell. Last time I read the bible it said all sins were equal in the eyes of God. They also sold Confederate Flags there, but the organizer explained that the “vendor” wasn’t a part of thier gathering…uh huh.
My two cents…
