The 16 days of Sarah Palin at CPAC: Day 15: We Know America

This is the 15th of my series of Sarah Palin clips from CPAC 2014 & com­men­tary upon them:

Day 1: The Crowd
Day 2: The Entrance
Day 3: Dr. Seuss
Day 4: Why Sarah Feels Good
Day 5: Play­ing Pre­vent
Day 6: Sink­ing Ships
Day 7: Flex­i­bil­ity Pens & Putin
Day 8: Antic­i­pa­tion
Day 9: Don’t blow it
Day 10: 2010 Again
Day 11: Real Fem­i­nism
Day 12: Lib­er­ated Much?
Day 13: Boldly Go Forth
Day 14: Why We Fight

One of the most inter­est­ing things about the rise of the tea party move­ment was just how much it took the left and the MSM by surprise.

When the move­ment exploded across the coun­try they were dumb­founded. They tried to explain them away, laugh them off, pre­tend they were dan­ger­ous and finally pro­mote alter­nate move­ments to try to drown them out.

Why didn’t they see the Tea Party for what it was?

It’s quite sim­ple. The media, so con­fined to the Washington/​NYC cen­ters and so used to pro­mot­ing the left’s paid astro­turf move­ments couldn’t com­pre­hend an actual grass-​roots move­ment of reg­u­lar Amer­i­cans because they don’t know or under­stand aver­age Americans.

Sarah Palin does. She knows the tea party mem­bers don’t have to be paid to show up.

Media Pro­pa­ganda not with­stand­ing when you go to the small tea par­ties events all over the coun­try you won’t find a bunch of Koch money, in fact you will see very lit­tle money period. What you will find are a lot of reg­u­lar peo­ple try­ing to make a difference.

And as Sarah Palin knows and reminds this audi­ence, it is those small gath­er­ings and the peo­ple who got involved on local and state cam­paigns which come from them, that are going to be crit­i­cal in 2014 and will still be there long after the media con­tin­ues to pro­nounce the tea party dead.

It’s Mon­day and with 8 days left to the month I am over $800 short of the Mort­gage that’s due in a week.

That’s why you don’t see the weekly goal this morn­ing, because if I make that goal I’ll still be nearly $700 shy to pay the bills this month.

We had a good start yes­ter­day but I still need a min­i­mum of four $25 tip jar hit­ters every day for the next nine days sim­ply to come up a mere $100 short.

It is still pos­si­ble to make our goal but only you help. If there was ever a time for you to kick in if you were think­ing of it, it’s now.

So I’m ask­ing you to hit DaTip­Jar below if you pos­si­bly can.

With 61 more $20 a month sub­scribers this site will be able to cover its bills for a full year.

A sub­scrip­tion comes not only with exclu­sive com­men­tary, but on a weekly basis you will have the oppor­tu­nity to get direct access to me by phone to pro­vide feed­back or sug­ges­tions to make sure this site is wor­thy of your finan­cial sup­port and patronage.

One of the most interesting things about the rise of the tea party movement was just how much it took the left and the MSM by surprise.

When the movement exploded across the country they were dumbfounded. They tried to explain them away, laugh them off, pretend they were dangerous and finally promote alternate movements to try to drown them out.

Why didn’t they see the Tea Party for what it was?

It’s quite simple. The media, so confined to the Washington/NYC centers and so used to promoting the left’s paid astroturf movements couldn’t comprehend an actual grass-roots movement of regular Americans because they don’t know or understand average Americans.

Sarah Palin does. She knows the tea party members don’t have to be paid to show up.

Media Propaganda not withstanding when you go to the small tea parties events all over the country you won’t find a bunch of Koch money, in fact you will see very little money period. What you will find are a lot of regular people trying to make a difference.

And as Sarah Palin knows and reminds this audience, it is those small gatherings and the people who got involved on local and state campaigns which come from them, that are going to be critical in 2014 and will still be there long after the media continues to pronounce the tea party dead.
