And answering her through our twitter http://twitter.com/HoustonTeaParty
I did not know who this woman was until I googled her… apparently the writer of the “progressive” blog Firedoglake and she produced the film “Double Dragon”.
She’s implying because freedomworks listed the Texas Tea parties and Dick Armey is part of freedomworks that the Tea Parties, Houston in particular, are being organized by “Corporate lobbyists”. Houston Tea Party has never spoken with Freedomworks or Dick Armey, though we do know that Freedomworks has offered legal advice to different Tea parties, we’ve not sought it. None of that should imply they are running the show unless you go to the point of just making stuff up.
The “Corporate lobbyist” line is a laugh. Felicia is a local Mother of two who worked with some local grassroots groups like Raging Elephants. I was someone who was trying to be apolitical the past 4 years until I took a good look at was going on, and I was laid off last week and currently unemployed. There are other organizers and volunteers with us. None of them come close to the description “Corporate Lobbyist”.
And no, this woman is nuts, Fox News is not organizing the Tea Parties, they’re just jumping on board (like a lot of people are trying to). But she’s seeing Dick Armey and Fox News as the boogeymen in the closet…
So… I’ve had my LMAO moment for the day. How about you?

If we’re being organized by “corporate lobbyists” then where the heck is my check?
We’re coining the term “Tea Party Truthers” to designate these people who try making these ridiculous connections that don’t correspond to reality. Just another campaign by our detractors to discredit us, and a pretty lousy one at that!
