Default FreedomWorks declares Tea Party identity "dated," urges minority outreach

Interesting.

The National Memo » Leaked Docs Reveal That Yes, ‘Grassroots’ FreedomWorks Is Pure Astroturf

The documents from which they drew these conclusions are here:

FreedomWorks Board Book Winter 2012

I like this bit from page 52:

Quote:
The third overarching media theme throughout the year has been the uncertain future of the Tea Party movement after the 2012 Election. FreedomWorks' strategic media objective for the remainder of the year is to transition the institution's brand away from the dated "Tea Party" identity, and towards the larger freedom movement that it represents.
Tea Party, R.I.P.?

If the Tea Party ever becomes diverse it wouldn't be the Tea Party. Where will all the white supremacist congregate?

The ideas are dated, not the identity. The gilded age didn't pan out so well.

Well one could say their all racist...

Neither party has done much for minorities or poor whites have they??? They both are sold out to Big Corporate interests...

I applaud the decision and I realize it's not an easy task but whats wrong with promoting traditional conservative values and trying to reach out to anyone of any race???

In case you havent noticed were on the path to bankruptcy and on the road to serfdom...

The math isn't hard...
