Rachel Maddow has been amazing in her coverage of the town hall nonsense. Last night, she exposed the connections between the Astroturf lobbying group that poses as a grassroots advocacy group, FreedomWorks, and their corporate sponsors. There is a lot of good information in this segment.
Most importantly, she stresses that nobody is arguing to suppress the protester’s free speech. However, FreedomWorks needs to stop with the false “we’re regular folks fighting for what we believe in” and identify themselves for what they really are…shills for the highest bidder. In that vein, folks that are taking their marching orders from FreedomWorks need to know that they’re being played.
Yeah, but the sheeple haven’t been listening to reason up to this point and I don’t expect them to do so anytime soon.
