Union’s Create There Own Anti-Tea Party
(Read the rest of the story at Fox News)
A seemingly grassroots organization that’s mounted an online campaign to counter the tea party movement is actually the front end of an elaborate scheme that funnels funds — including sizable labor union contributions — through the offices of a prominent Democratic party lawyer. A Web site popped up in January dedicated to preventing the tea party’s “radical” and “dangerous” ideas from “gaining legislative traction,” targeting GOP candidates in Illinois for the firing squad. “This movement is a fad,” proclaims TheTeaPartyIsOver.org, which was established by the American Public Policy Center (APPC), a D.C.-based campaign shop that few people have ever heard of.
Two Democratic schills, Craig Varoga and George Rakis, are setting up fake grassroots union funded anti-tea party groups. And guess who are some of the big behind the scene bank rollers, big surprise the labor unions. Records show the Service Employees International Union, Change to Win, the Communications Workers of America, the National Education Association, the Teamsters Union, the United Food & Commercial Workers Union and unionized government workers, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME). You kind of have to wonder why these leftist unions are so afraid of the tea party crowd. I guess they are afraid of losing the billions of taxpayer dollars the Obama administration is funneling there way.
