Disaffected lefties launch … “Coffee Party” movement

posted at 5:52 pm on February 26, 2010 by Allahpundit

I’ve read the WaPo profile, looked at their website, watched the two videos below, and I still don’t quite get it. They’re claiming, essentially, to be nonpartisan and less interested in pushing particular policies than in “dialogue” and “cooperation” for their own sake. Which, given the realities in the Senate, is a very thinly veiled way of calling for fewer filibusters and more Democratic — sorry, I mean bipartisan — legislation. Here’s their statement of principles, for what it’s worth; assuming they stick around, it’ll be fun to watch how this changes once the GOP has a majority in both chambers again.

We want the political process broken down into three steps:
1) open and respectful dialogue
2) thoughtful and informed deliberation
3) competent and decisive execution.

The process is so broken, we can’t get past step 1 right now. We demand cooperation, productivity and accountability in government in the same way we would demand it of an employee we might hire for a job.

We want local chapters to have the autonomy to figure out their own legislative and electoral priorities. At the national level, we’ll make recommendations for direct action on legislation. But they will only be suggestions. We value and celebrate diverse opinions just as we value and celebrate diverse backgrounds. All that is required to be part of this movement is a sincere commitment to participating in, and protecting the democratic process.

A friendly reminder from George Will: The American democratic process, especially in the Senate, includes the right to obstruct. Right, Mr. President? Exit quotation from the WaPo piece: “I don’t really understand what they’re about other than ‘we don’t like the Tea Party’ and ‘we’re for a better process.’”

The Coffee Party!?

I say bring it on.

Conservative Samizdat on February 26, 2010 at 7:24 PM

Granola – Hippie wannabees, can’t come up with an original thought, all they can do is mimic….unfortunately the coffee is keeping them awake so we have to read about their lameness.

Dr Evil on February 26, 2010 at 7:25 PM

I just went to the coffee party website and this poll was just off to the side:

Poll
In your opinion, what is the most urgent issue?
Immigration
1%
Healthcare
68%
Climate Change
7%
Job Creation
13%
Bank Regulations
6%
Fair Elections
4%
Total votes: 220

Yeeaaahhhh…I’m more than a little suspicious of a group who is so in tune with hard lib policies but out of tune with the rest of the country. Healthcare my butt.

RAB on February 26, 2010 at 7:25 PM

Hey little madam mao talks about not wanting a sliver of society running the country. So I guess this is a call to arms to anyone who is not caucasian.

Ampersand on February 26, 2010 at 7:27 PM

Careful, the grass is still wet with fertilizer…wouldn’t want this grassroots to suffer….

In February 2010, Byler videotaped the “How we Started” video for the Coffee Party movement, a coalition that began as a fan page on Facebook. The Coffee Party movement (CPM) apparently was started in opposition to the Tea Party movement. Mission statement, CPM: The Coffee Party Movement gives voice to Americans who want to see cooperation in government. We recognize that the federal government is not the enemy of the people, but the expression of our collective will, and that we must participate in the democratic process in order to address the challenges that we face as Americans. As voters and grassroots volunteers, we will support leaders who work toward positive solutions, and hold accountable those who obstruct them.

In support of the exit quote, here is what Annabel Park said on her facebook page which lead to the formation of the “coffee party”.

let’s start a coffee party . . . smoothie party. red bull party. anything but tea. geez. ooh how about cappuccino party? that would really piss ‘em off bec it sounds elitist . . . let’s get together and drink cappuccino and have real political dialogue with substance and compassion.

Really, that’s about it. It’s all about not liking the tea party.

EFG on February 26, 2010 at 7:32 PM

Just watched both videos. Typical Utopianists. People movement but want government freebies. This is the result of 100 years of Progressive indoctrination and history revisionism. They exist in a history free dreamworld…..

Great movement…launched in the snow, by herself, babbling Progressive-Left talking points about the stupid obstructionist xenophobes who comprise the tea party movement.

EasyEight on February 26, 2010 at 7:41 PM

Yeh…really feels like a grassroots movement!! Funny how the second video is explicitly partisan and anti-Republican…yet lets all get together and end all the partisanship…

EasyEight on February 26, 2010 at 7:44 PM

Eric Byler works for the Jim Webb (Copperhead-VA) campaign. Nuff said.

Astroturf at it’s finest.

The guy in the video looks like the guy in the 2nd clip here. Doesn’t look like they’ve expanded their base.

Funny how she stresses Obama’s leadership, and how good he is, and now, just uh, like one year after winning, umm, like everything is like falling apart.

This is standard Progressive puffery. Dewey himself could have written that tripe.

JDPerren on February 26, 2010 at 8:11 PM

Huh. Searched for these folks after some here provided links. They are the opposite of the Tea Party indeed — they are committed leftist political activists supporting statist progressive agendas. They are not grassroots, they are nutroots.

EasyEight on February 26, 2010 at 8:12 PM

Someone should remind the “Coffee Party” folks that there already was a coffee campaign — in the ’60s against the expansion of Social Security to include health care (Medicare), called Operation Coffee Cup.

And who was its star?

Tom Chambers on February 26, 2010 at 8:18 PM

Well, we knew that the progressives are invested in process, and we knew that they spend their time at Starbucks, so the “movement” speaks for itself.

Day-um, I love coffee, but being associated in drink of choice with these morons sends me up a wall.

They have a fundamental disrespect for diversity of opinion. They fail to understand that we don’t have love affairs with our government. We see its power as being defined and limited by us, not the other way around.

I suggest that the se;f-described farm woman volunteer at a food bank and in schools trying to raise the literacy rate instead of worrying that everyone does not have the same health care.

onlineanalyst on February 26, 2010 at 8:29 PM

Can’t wait to see the astroturfing coffee party protests. Liberals are lazy, no one will show up. (except those who are paid)

If you do not vote with the Democrats you are an obstructionist. That is THE BIG LIE that Obama brought with him and that gets repeated thousands of times an hour by people as naive or dishonest as this nest of vipers.
How can you have dialog when laws are written behind locked doors that Pelosi will only allow Democrats to pass through?
These semi-informed and lying jokers are only encouraging more of the same foolishness from Congress.
How long before we find the Axelrod connection?

And “more” + “legislation”…

Not one hint about the U.S. Constitution, though.

Lourdes on February 26, 2010 at 9:59 PM

… push leaders to enact the progressive change for which 52.9 percent of the country voted in 2008.

Yes, in 2008 when Obama ran on the “progressive” platform of real spending cuts, pay-go, a middle class tax cut, and true fiscal responsibility.

This of course is what they’re clamoring for, right?

bluemarlin on February 26, 2010 at 10:20 PM

Just in case they’re legitimate, I registered and attempted to add the following comment to a blog post (We Are Democracy Advocates…):

I’ll be honest here… I’m a bit skeptical of the Coffee Party. I will try to keep an open mind, though… your goals are certainly laudable.

While I have never attended a Tea Party protest, I am sympathetic to many (most?) of their positions on things. And to be blunt, much of what is up on the site seems to be anti-Tea Party as much as anything else.

The first step of the outline above states that the Coffee Party desires “open and respectful dialogue”. I would like to ask, therefore, what the Coffee Party’s stance is on those pundits, journalists, and elected officials who use the “teabagger” slur to denigrate their political opponents. And, if you do oppose its use as an impediment to “open and respectful dialogue”, what steps can be taken to address this?

The comment is currently in moderation, which I can understand. However, when I hit “preview comment”, the text displayed was nothing like the above, and instead was just pro-healthcare-takeover-gibberish. I guess that will be my first real indication as to whether they’re honest or not.

malclave on February 26, 2010 at 10:25 PM

Look! It`s snowing! Gives meaning to the beverage “iced coffee”. That is coffee she is holding, right??As I am writing this the young lady is droning on and on and . . . . on . . . . and on . . . . And I scrolled up several times to identify what she is holding . . . .

I will give her a word of advice, please don`t wear a red cloak and go into the dark forest with some hungry wolf after you . . . uh . . . her.

Zzzzzzzzzzz . . . .

2) thoughtful and informed deliberation

Attn: Obam, Pelosi, Reid, please do NOT use tricky math when submitting bills to the CBO. Oh, and, no fair meeting behind closed doors or offering bribes.

3) competent and decisive execution

Close/keep Gitmo? KSM trials in NYC, or no? A January Pivot to jobs in April? Hope & Change or status quo? Campaign or govern? Man-Caused Disasters, Lone Extremist, or Terrorist? No Lobbyist? Bow or deep hand-shake?

BoomJunkie on February 26, 2010 at 11:11 PM

The tea party was unique and important because conservatives and right leaning independents don’t typically organize and protest. These we people finding a collective voice for the fist time.

Liberals organizing to protest is just another news day. It’s a dog bytes man story. I’d bet this organization is funded and led by other liberal groups already in existence. It’s marketing 101. Take something old and slap a new name/label on it and sell it as something new and improved.

Ampersand on February 26, 2010 at 11:18 PM

I saw a facebook acquaintance join their facebook page a couple of weeks ago and had to post some of it on my blog.

I just saw another of my facebook friends say this tonight:

The Coffee Party is about sound, reasoned political deliberation and demanding a smart government that works for the people. We are not anti-tea party, but we are against obstructionism and discourse of hatred.

So, they’re “not anti-tea party”, and they are for “reasoned political deliberation” and “the discourse of hatred”, but they refer specifically to “Tea Baggers” and “Knuckle-Headed Baggers” and use the following terms:

“Bagger” “buffoon” “ignoramus” “knuckle dragging” “dumb” “nuts” “simple minded” “knuckle headed” “bozo” “hate filled” “poser ‘patriots’” “clown acts” “ignorance”

“Dedicated to the fun of insulting politically simple minded knuckle headed baggers.”

Sounds like reasoned discourse and a hatred free zone to me, how about you?

philmon on February 26, 2010 at 11:19 PM

The lady on the second video screen cap looks somewhat like the actress from the old MCI Gramercy Press commercials in the mid \’90, but aged about, oh 15 years. Other than that, yeah, what do they stand for besides government doing stuff?
