I'm coming off the most amazing event in Florida, historic in fact, and the mainstream media's myopic meme is culled from the Hamas-linked CAIR press release deriding the event and creating Islamic supremacist lies out of whole cloth. Yes, now the media is taking their talking points and their cues from the Muslim Brotherhood, pimping their anti-American hate and spinning it into "news reportage." Today's coverage of the Florida State Tea Party Convention channels the Muslim Brotherhood front group CAIR's press release, which focused on a single fallacious and diabolical lie: the absence of big name politicians from this event -- which of course was my fault.
CAIR was rebuked and disinvited to the Tea Party, but no mention was made of that in any of the news accounts. But the CAIR lie that politicians didn't come because of me (part of the Islamic smear campaign against voices of freedom) was widely repeated.
Yes, CAIR claimed that. The Muslim Brotherhood front group CAIR originated the line that Florida politicians were avoiding the Tea Party Convention because I was speaking, and the subjugated knaves in the mainstream media eagerly picked up on it. This shows yet again who they serve, and what their agenda really is.
Who cares which politicians showed up?
This event was never about the politicians. It was about the people they serve. It was about the people who put them there. We the people. It was about organizing, strategizing and developing our battle-plan for 2012. As for the absent politicians, some of them got to where they are only with the help of the Tea Party. They will surely come around later in the game. Those politicians who were too afraid of Hamas-linked CAIR to show up at this event will come knocking on the doors of these people when they need their votes. Expect a booty call from certain cowardly and quisling politicians. But these folks won't be so inclined to answer this time.
The uber-left mainstream media and their Islamic overlords are on a mission to destroy the Tea Party. That's the objective. But it is not going to happen. This is the stuff that made America. This is the stuff that made America great. There's a hatred and fear of the right and the righteous.
Here are some of the mainstream media stories that repeat the narrative about the Florida Tea Party Convention that they got from Hamas-linked CAIR.

Pure leftist/Islamic propaganda. Nothing about the Convention. Nothing about what actually happened. No reporting. Just smears and hit pieces. Manipulation.
The great Lloyd Marcus with those who served
Last night I told the convention, "You dance with the one what brung ya," and that applies to a lot of the politicians who were absent yesterday: the Tea Party elected them, and if they had any sense of honor, any sense of gratitude to the ones who elected them, they should have been there. Those politicians have the Tea Party to thank for their offices.
And what happened to the free press in America? For the truth, you have to go to the alternative media: to the blogs. We still have the freedom to tell the truth on the Net -- at least for now. Email, post, tweet, do it! Build the new machine to counter the enemy arsenal.
But ultimately, cowardly politicians and media as the slave of Hamas-linked CAIR are not the story. The real story is the patriots who did show up. The lovers of America and of freedom who braved media opprobrium and slander and came to the Convention for love of their country. They are the future of this nation, and its salvation after the age of Obama. This is still America. The people still rule. We, the people.
