Conservative group removes Mark Williams "union infiltration" plan from site


The other day, I posted about conservative radio host and all around ass Mark Williams' big plan to infiltrate a union protest by asking his supporters to impersonate SEIU members. Exposing it got an enormous response here and elsewhere, but it didn't stop him. I heard him on the Thom Hartmann Show today announcing they were going full steam ahead.

However, he may not have as much cooperation as he previously thought (via the Sacramento Bee):

Darla Dawald, national director of Patriot Action Network, acknowledged in this Sunday update on the organization's website that she removed Williams blog from the organization's site:

We had listed what Mark Williams and some others in Sacremento (sic) CA were planning to do as far as infiltrating the SEIU rallies. We never asked our members to take that kind of action nor was that our intention. ... I have since removed the blog to make it clear we are NOT calling for that action to be taken but rather as it states below, this was a call to action to organize and support counter protests.

Williams' plan was published after the network invited Tea Party activists in California and around the country to unite and protest at union rallies around the country.

As a gagworthy bonus, here are few little Williams gems I picked up while listening to him on the Hartmann show:

--"We're the people who pay the bills."

--Progressives trained ME in these tactics."

--"Reagan cared for the working people, not Obama."

Tea Party plan to impersonate union protesters: "Even if it becomes known that we are plants the quotes & pictures will linger as defacto truth."


Great thanks to viscous_rumors for linking me to this typical piece of tea bagger excrement, brought to you by radio personality Mark Williams:

That link will take you to an SEIU page where you can sign up as an “organizer” for one of their upcoming major rallies to support the union goons in Wisconsin.

...  (1) I signed up as an organizer (2) with any luck they will contact me and I will have an “in”  (3) in or not I will be there and am asking as many other people as can get there to come with, all of us in SEIU shirts (those who don’t have them we can possibly buy some from vendors likely to be there)  (4) we are going to target the many TV cameras and reporters looking for comments from the members there  (5) we will approach the cameras to make good pictures… signs under our shirts that say things like “screw the taxpayer!”  and “you OWE me!” to be pulled out for the camera (timing is important because the signs will be taken away from us) (6) we will echo those slogans in angry sounding tones to the cameras and the reporters.  (7) if I do get the ‘in’ I am going to do my darnedest to get podium access and take the mic to do that rant from there…with any luck and if I can manage the moments to build up to it, I can probably get a cheer out of the crowd for something extreme.

WARNING: When around these union events do NOT instigate ANY physical confrontation, walk away from anyone who tries to start one with you. These people WILL have a mob mentality and ARE dangerous. [...]

Chances are that because I am publishing this they’ll catch wind, but it is worth the chance if you take it upon yourself to act…there’s only one of me but there are millions of you and I know that you CAN do this!

Our goal is to make the gathering look as greedy and goonish as we know that it is, ding their credibility with the media and exploit the lazy reporters who just want dramatic shots and outrageous quotes for headlines.  Even if it becomes known that we are plants the quotes and pictures will linger as defacto truth.

And that's the way they create news memes.

Time to stop them.


Mark Williams rejoins the Tea Party


Once upon a time, a repulsive Tea Bagger named Mark Williams wrote a "satirical" blog post in which he created a fictional letter from “Colored People” (his words) to President Abraham Lincoln. He also said that the NAACP created Tea Party racism.  They crashed the rallies, you see,  with all those misspelled racist signs.

The Tea Party kicked him out.

That didn't last long:

Williams said the effort will be called the "Citizens Reclaiming Constitutional Liberties PAC." [...]

"We'll be looking for…conservative young people who have something to offer, something to say and don't identify, in some cases, with either party," Williams told CNN in an exclusive interview.

First he smacked the GOBP:

"We're fielding conservative candidates outside of the Republican Party structure because the Republican Party can't be trusted."

Divide and conquer. Good strategy, Mark. You divide, we'll conquer.

Then he whacked the very Tea Baggers with whom he wants to pal around:

"What we're looking to do is channel all of this into something more constructive than standing around at rallies and yelling and just cheerleading," Williams said. "You know the Tea Party thing … the feeling a lot of us had was that the thing had stalled at the cheerleading stage."

That should win 'em over.


Tea Party Federation kicks out Teabagger Mark Williams over blog post


I'd like to amend that last line to include ALL of the teabaggers.

(CNN) -- The National Tea Party Federation, an organization that represents the Tea Party political movement around the country, has expelled conservative commentator Mark Williams and his Tea Party Express because of an inflammatory blog post he wrote, federation spokesman David Webb said Sunday.

Appearing on the CBS program "Face the Nation," Webb said that Williams and the Tea Party Express -- which has held a series of events across the country to generate support for the movement -- no longer were part of the National Tea Party Federation.

"We, in the last 24 hours, have expelled Tea Party Express and Mark Williams from the National Tea Party Federation because of the letter that he wrote," Webb said of the blog post by Williams that satirized a fictional letter from what he called "Colored People" to President Abraham Lincoln.

Webb called the blog post "clearly offensive."
