Tea Parties Worrying Liberals?

The Tax day tea parties seem to be worrying liberals enough to where they are planning to infiltrate them to try to create the impression that they are "fringe" groups and are some sort of "racial" undertakings.

On Fox News Channel’s April 7 “Your World,” host Neil Cavuto reported that the Tax Day tea party protests on April 15 will be “infiltrated” by their political opponents and led by left-wing activist organizations. He specifically named Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN).

“Only eight days before a nationwide tea party, some over-caffeinated crashers aiming to lay waste to it,” Cavuto said. “Reports of very well-organized infiltrators trying to mix in and rain on this parade. Talk about taxing.”

One organizer, Mark Meckler of the Sacramento Tea Party, dismissed the counter efforts and said they were to be expected.

“We don’t take them seriously at all, and I’ll tell you why,” “It’s not that they don’t exist – we expect people to attempt to infiltrate,” Meckler said. “We expect people to attempt to disturb what we are doing, but the reality is that this is a very broad-based grassroots movement. There is no leader at the top. There is no individual event that they can disturb that would cause us a problem nationwide.”

We are one week away from the Tax Day Tea Parties, which are protests that will be held across the country.

Rather than having any noticeable negative effect on the Tea Party taxpayer protests, I am quite certain that the counter-protests will do nothing but embolden those who are fed up with the spending spree of the liberals and Barack Obama. They may even succeed in having the net effect of increasing attendance at the April 15 taxpayer protests.
