Stupid Tea Party Tricks: FreedomWorks Launches Pointless Boycott Against Comcast

The Tea Party has been involved in too many idiotic escapades to count. One of their more memorable proposals was to fly a plane over the Superbowl with a banner reading “Impeach Obama.” Apparently they were not aware that the game would be played in a domed stadium and that it’s illegal to fly over it anyway. Or recall their assertion that ultra-conservative anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist is a Muslim infiltrator. Their proof? He has a beard. And who could forget the call for Americans to rise up and burn their ObamaCare cards. No matter that ObamaCare cards do not exist, FreedomWorks will be printing them up and providing them to Tea Party pyromaniacs.

The very same FreedomWorks is now embarking on a massive campaign to punish Comcast because their MSNBC subsidiary employees Al Sharpton. They have produced a comically amateurish video (below) declaring it “a disgrace that Sharpton has his own TV show.” They sent an email to their 2.3 million suckers…er…members urging them to cancel their cable service if Comcast is their provider. The email states that…

“By paying your Comcast cable bill, your money is helping to pay for Al Sharpton’s salary…Comcast cable subscribers can take action against Roberts and his biased media empire by changing their cable TV service provider. By exercising marketplace choice, consumers can prevent their money from supporting media propaganda.”

If you get the idea that FreedomWorks didn’t think this through very well, you’re quite right. After all, Sharpton works for MSNBC, not Comcast. Any cable customers who cancel their subscriptions will have zero effect on Sharpton’s employment status. Those customers were encouraged by FreedomWorks to switch from Comcast to DirecTV, AT&T, or some other provider. However, all of those providers also offer MSNBC, so the revenue generated to the cable network will be exactly the same. Should they opt to do without cable programming, their boycott will do just as much harm to Fox News, and every other channel, as to MSNBC.

So this threat is as impotent as Rush Limbaugh sans Viagra. When liberals mounted a successful boycott against Fox News’ Glenn Beck, they targeted Beck’s advertisers. The same tactic has drained the bank account of Limbaugh and his radio affiliates. But going after Comcast won’t have any more impact on Sharpton’s MSNBC program than it will on Donald Trump’s unreality show on NBC.

It is a TAX, a new tax.
If you refuse to pay your taxes owed under the new tax system called Obamacare you will then go to jail and lose everything.
You are force to pay fur illegal healthcare.
Welcome to the Liberal Utopia!
Detroit 100 times bigger.
they will simply take it out of your tax return. Which means all the people who don't pay taxes but get a return due to the EITC will in essence be getting free health insurance when including the subsidies. It is a redistribution of wealth scam of the highest order!!! If a private citizen or business tried to pull off something like this they would not be thrown in jail but under the jail!!! I repeat: THIS IS THE BIGGEST SCAM PERPETRATED ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SINCE THE GREAT SOCIETY!!!

I don't think anyone loves the IRS; especially regular people and small business people who always bear the brunt of audits and levying. As my accountant always says; they do it because they can.
They can't get to the big tax evaders like Mitt Romney et al since they employ entire legal departments to make sure they are untouchable.
That being said; in Mass. you have to attach proof of having health insurance with your return; or you have to pay a penalty.
Most people comply; the idea is for everyone to realize that they have to have insurance. I'm not in love with Obamacare; I am and always have been a proponent of single payer healthcare paid through taxation as is done in Canada. It's cleaner, simpler and less complicated. Get rid of insurance companies; healthcare should not be a "for profit" business with ceos who are paid bonuses to withhold procedures so they can remain in good standing with their stockholders.
I've said this hundreds of times.

We could act like Liberals/Obama and blame Clinton…Right?

For every bit of collateral damage like the Aussie teen, there are 10-20 homicidal gang-bangers gunned down and removed from the gene pool. That's good news, and a positive trend we should nurture and applaud.....
I do believe this president and his administration yearn for civil unrest. It would make it easier for the federal government to implement a "civilian national security force" that is "as powerful and well-funded as the military" which Obama plainly touted as one of his goals. It would be easier to control and isolate whoever they deem a threat.

We're not in Kansas anymore. We're not even in the United States of America anymore. This is clearly a communist tactic.

Liberals cannot defend why any president would call for a "civilian national security force" as "well-funded and powerful as the military" under any circumstance.

This president is succeeding in fundamentally changing this country right under our noses one unnoticed step at a time and with our continued complacency.

From day one, I said we're in dangerous waters. We're now headed into a perfect storm.

Turning against each other would be playing into the hands of those in power who are seeking absolute power.

We have to find a way to encourage tolerance with strong voices and intervention to restore some sanity to the present insanity.

too bad there wasn't video of the Martin killing. Zimmerman might have ended up where that 76 year old who shot the unarmed teen did.
A jury convicted Spooner of first-degree intentional homicide in the May 2012 killing of Darius Simmons. Surveillance video taken from Spooner's own security cameras showed him confronting the teen that morning, pointing a gun at him from about 6 feet away and shooting him in the chest.

Martin brutally attacked Zimmerman. Do you think that the laws should be changed so that it would be legal for young people to brutally attack anyone that annoys them or ignores them? Tell that to the five foot tall 88 year old that was killed earlier in the week.

Fact is, bushie boy acted unwisely since he had no intelligence.

What Kerry or anyone else said doesn´t carry much weight unless you're abdicating bushie's authority.

Na, odumbo doesnt have the power, organization, or wherewithal to do something like that (even if he wanted to). Hell, he cant even push through a fully-funded ACA.

Remember that at the end of the day he is still half anglo, and doesnt want a bunch of freeloading, homicidal ni**achimps hanging out on his lawn either....

Martin had the right to kill Zimmerman according to the stand your ground law. Would a jury have found him not guilty?
They didn't use the stand your ground law in that case. It was a simple case of self defense. Do you think they should change the laws to allow young people to simply go out and beat to death anyone that annoys them?

Rush is basically funded by the far right groups as he lost most of his corporate sponsors. They like the way he dupes morons like you.
If I tune in while on an errand, he always tells a lie & when I next check Topix, you fricken morons are regurgitating his crap..
If a woman earns a reputation,she keeps it. It is not societies responsibility to provide alibis,excuses or justifications for immoral behavior. It is the individuals responsibility to remain moral and decent.
