The mission of crashtheteaparty.org is simple. "Infiltrate and dismantle" the movement from the inside out. The group's strategy is to impersonate tea party supporters and portray them as right-wing extremists in front of the news cameras in order to discredit the cause. The biggest Tax Day Tea Party takes place in Washington DC on April 15th.

If the tea party people are supposed to be racist and right wing extremists...why do they need a group of people to infiltrate them to make them look like racist and right wing extremists?? Would they not be able to do that on there own?? Just wondering...

The more they try, the more they shoot themselves in the foot.

I love Karma. She's one hella cool chica.

Oh, you will find wackos in every group. The problem is they haven't found many hanging around the Tea Party fringes so they have to manufacture some fake ones to discredit the movement.

The real Tea Party people will be older and not doing crazy things. IMO the fakers will be younger, acting wacko and disrespectful. I can't see older liberals going out to fake this, they are too sensible. In this case it will be a good thing most Tea Party people are older. It will be amusing to see the fakers.

Default He is a laugh a minute---

Besides photos, the FR blogger "icwhatudo" was able to reveal Levin's address, phone and email; work and education history; Twitter and Linkedin account; and even pulled this personal and slimy quote from Levin's MySpace page.
"As a black lesbian trapped in the body of a straight white man, I am able to pass as a member of the establishment wile still maintaining my oneness with the spirit of the Earf Muvah. I’m currently being sued by my inner child for molestation...but trust me, the charges are baseless."

If this guy really was serious in framing the Tea Party folks, why did he make himself soo dam visible , it's almost like he was begging to be found...

This whole thing sounds very fishy, just too dam obvious.

By creating the website and spreading the word around, wasn't he bound to be found out? I mean if he really wanted to smear the Tea Party, then why not be really quiet about it.
