There's a movement underway that reportedly started on Facebook. It is an obvious attempt at countering the Tea Party Movement although they are trying to attach themselves to the Tea Party Movement. They call themselves the COFFEE PARTY. When I noticed several people on my Facebook friends list who are conservatives listed as "liking" their Facebook page, I felt compelled to warn fellow conservatives about this very deceptive group.

The left has found out that direct opposition to the Tea Party Movement along with the very "tolerant" name-calling that includes some pornographic references has not worked. The Tea Party Movement has continued to grow rapidly as the majority of Americans are fed up with big government and the Washington system. The Tea Party Movement has transcended political ideologies, party affiliations, and all walks of life. The Republicans thought they saw a huge political opportunity and tried to attach themselves to it. The Tea Party, or rather, fellow citizens more or less told them, "Uh, no, some of y'all need to go too."

In order to see through the Coffee Party movement, let's start with the founder, Annabel Park. First, Ms. Park actively campaigned for Barack Obama in 2008. She was one of the founders of the YouTube channel UNITED FOR OBAMA. That alone seems to be
incongruous with the statement Ms. Park made to the New York Times, "We're not the opposite of the Tea Party . . ." Since Obama was the most radically left of all the Senators, including Ted Kennedy, just the fact she is an ardent Obama supporter would in and of itself indicate she opposes the Tea Party.

Next, let's look at their website and see for what they stand. When the INFO tab is clicked, the first thing that is noticed is that many of the articles' referenced are from MEDIA MATTERS, a radically left political website. The Coffee Party supports government takeover of the nation's healthcare system, legalization of illegal immigrants already in the U.S., sides with the handful of scientists who espouse climate change (some of whom have been discredited for suspected tampering with climate data to "prove" global warming), believes the Democrats and the Obama administration have not been fiscally irresponsible, supports Obama's policies on terrorism, and attacks Sarah Palin.

"We're not the opposite of the Tea Party," Ms. Park told the New York times. "We're a different model of civic participation, but in the end we may want some of the same things."

"We need to roll up our sleeves, put our heads together and work it out."

Sounds good, doesn't it? Sounds like she wants to bring liberals and conservatives together to bring about positive change in Washington, doesn't it? Well, if you're still not convinced, check out some of Ms. Park's Twitter tweets:







Doesn't sound like the coffee wants to join with the tea to me.

Don't be fooled by this. It's simply another attempt by the radical left to regain their political stature. They know they are in big trouble and this November will be just the beginning. Voters do not seem to have the short memories of days past.

Good post Dirk- thanks for investigating this. What really I have to shake my head at with this "party" Is that she is still calling for change. Like there hasn't been enough change already! I imagine it will be a big boost for the radical left (or the dems in general) but yeah, definitely not my cup of tea. God Bless you Dirk! Keep it up!

You apparently haven't looked at the Facebook page. It's about civility in government and public affairs. That is something the Teabaggers and their ilk know nothing about. If you had seen them invade our local parade last fall, you would have seen them at their worst. The local folks were about to ride them out of town on a rail and that includes both Democrats and Republicans.

It should be self-apparent by now that we shall see all kinds of 'nut-jobs' come out of the wood work now trying to stop the true will of the People. Just look how foolish Nancy Pelosi was the other day with her stupid, condescending statement..."We have to pass the health-care bill so we can understand it." Duh...

I apoligize Dirk for not commenting on both yours and Carolyn's Blog I am having a bit, of a problem with a worm that I have recieved because of my blog.

THIS IS WHY I'm glad there is not a leader in the Tea Party because there is not any one person to smear to distroy the movement.

The Good Old Boys are in both Parties and they want socialism.
