Treason! Secret Video Reveals Tea Party’s Anti-American Agenda

[ed. note - CM1] Thank you to Movement Vision's sallykhon for permission to reproduce this humorous piece of citizen journalism and for daring to enter the world of extreme nuttiness that is the tea party, videoing it and still coming out with her sanity intact.

I’ve never been to a tea party. Really. Not even as a little girl. Was never my thing. So when I decided I was going to infiltrate the Tri-State Liberty Summit of Tea Party activists, my first question was: What do I wear? Unfortunately, my frilly cocktail dress was at the cleaners so I had to go with my usual “Is she a boy or a girl?” attire. Good news is, the Tea Party activists were unfazed by my gender-bending sweater vest. All they seemed to care about was that I was white.

Because in the flurry of red, white and blue sentiment that filled the Italian American Center of Stamford, Connecticut, on May 23, 2010, the most prominent color was definitely white. White people with ghostly white faces fearing that our new black President is only one sooner-than-expected sign of the approaching end of white racial dominance in America.

There are a million reasons to be awake in the middle of the night in New York City.  Something magical happens there after dark.  The city changes.  It looks different.  It sounds different.  It has different people.

Part for the Whole?

The showing of Synecdoche, New York I attended was packed.  Half the audience members were people my age and older (the more ancient end of the baby boom); half, as could be expected at the Sunshine Theater on Houston St. in Manhattan, were rather too cool to admit to looking more than, say, twenty-five.  All were rapt through the movie’s two hours and four minutes (about thirty-four minutes too long for the plot, I’d say).  Yet, when the final word of the movie was voiced (a word predictable from early in the scene), there was a collective sigh of relief.
