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.’”

So is all this supposed to set up a narrative of “teabaggers” vs. the “coffee grinders”?

Tea baggin’s bad; But check out the Coffee Bag trick in the Urban Dictionary!

Cybergeezer on February 26, 2010 at 6:45 PM

That’s a new one. To me “coffee baggers” is also a non-sequitur since coffee’s not really a ‘bag’ kind of thing…

I say we call them the Coffee Beans.
From Urban Dictionary… of … Hispanic descent…

uknowmorethanme on February 26, 2010 at 6:46 PM

Hm – I don’t know. Folks might fall victim to the grammatic urge to append “-ers” to denote people vs. things (like how protesters are called “teabaggers” and “tea partiers”, not “teabags” or “tea parties”).

When that happens I’m guessing “coffee b—ers” will not go over well. It’ll be a opening by the ‘coffee party’ to smear everyone opposed to them as evil racists.

Could that be what they want? Is that their evil master plan? /scary music

RD on February 26, 2010 at 11:53 PM

The handle should be on the left.

unclesmrgol on February 26, 2010 at 11:53 PM

IIRC the original Tea Party had nothing to do with drinking it. Everything to do with an attempt on liberty by imposing a tax.

But EPA would put a huge fine on folks putting tea leaves in Boston harbor especially. How we have progressived.

A small problem that had Parliament in an uproar. Colonists were not paying tax on rum either. And they were drinking a helluv lot more rum than tea.

Bottom line: governments are greedy for your money. The Constitution specifies what our government may do. Elect folks who enforce out Constitution.

platypus on February 27, 2010 at 12:43 AM

One would expect such idiocy from “Progressives”.

No historical basis for “Coffee Party”, as opposed to “Tea Party”, leaves these loons with a lame-ass rip-off name that is stupid as hell.

“Progressives” tend not to like history anyway, since after all, ignorance of history, and history’s rejection as being “obsolete”, are in fact built into the very name and ethos of “Progressivism” and always have been.

I call for a Coffee Enema.

Feh.

Well, as long as they don’t get between me and my cup of joe, they’re safe.

On planet Earth, coffee is the ‘water of life’.

PS - I watched the first vid [no thanks to the second one] and I noted with considerable amusement that she was describing the ‘rat party to a tee.

Geez, if this their response to the TP’ers, they may as well go back to giving each other digital ‘back-rubs’ on Facebook.

What a sad excuse for ‘concerned’ citizenry.

Really sad.

daesleeper on February 27, 2010 at 1:28 AM

This is completely un-disguised liberalism. Saying they want discourse now is disingenuous after the language of last spring, especially from “their” party.
Remeber this; “I don’t want the people who made this mess to do too much talking, just get out of the way and let us clean it up”? That’s from Teh One himself, to great applause. How about “I won”?
Pleas for quiet intelligent dialogue went out the door when Joe the plumber was investigated by democrat party officials in an attempt to personally smear a citizen for having an opinion. Civility isn’t the metaphorical raping of Sarah Palin’s reputation by their party leaders or the media.

Yadda Yadda Yadda. I could go on for days about the partisan low-blows from the left, and most of you could add to the list without having to google to remember, but the point should be made here and from now on…..

Bill Clinton and James Carville and a handful of other influential democrats said they would come up with a way to counter the Tea Partiers, to discredit and negate them in time for the November elections. What you see here and in the LA times Op-Ed page are the first shots in a calculated, planned counter strategy. And having people throw up their hands and say they’ve had enough of the rancor, or just walk away because the “Tea Party” is labeled as mean, would be as much of a win as defeat in the arena of ideas, where the left and the democrats cannot win.

This is truly astroturfing. Faux grass-roots organizations that spring up with a .com, a twitter base, sponsers, etc.
Give me a break. Wonder if Nancy Pelosi will bemoan this group as fake, or rancorous, or racist, or Hitlerian, or……

Ms. Park’s expressed contempt for “tea partiers” makes her blathering about “coming together in the middle” a quite transparent load of bulls—. It’s just more liberal loathing and condescension along with their usual incoherence. Also, the 4+ minute vanity video in the snow is par for the course.

“1) open and respectful dialogue”

Translation: We want the Republicans to get on board our atrocities.

2) thoughtful and informed deliberation

Just tell us it was thoughtful and informed. Don’t show us. Open sewers scare us.

3) competent and decisive execution.

We don’t want to grow up and be responsible for anything ourselves. We want big daddy government to do it all.

Hm, in fact the whole manifesto sounds like a bunch of whining children demanding their own way but accepting no responsibility for its results at all.

Where ARE the adults?

BobAnthony on February 27, 2010 at 8:05 AM

The saddest thing about the Coffee Party posting is that she sounds like a Tea Party person. She’s been convinced by someone that Tea Party = GOP and that is not true as I see it. Her goal is to move Washington toward effective solutions and better representation. I agree with her and so does the Tea Party.

stuartm650 on February 27, 2010 at 8:25 AM

The Coffee Party believes that Government is the people and that the Tea Party is obstructing the ability of the Government to tell U.S. what to do.

This is the sign that the education system has convoluted the role of Government in the malleable minds of those who have difficulty thinking for themselves.

Just did some research on the Coffee Grinders. Poor little Annabell Park. Denizen of DC, federal employee in all likely, with ALL the special treatment and advantages of being a woman and a minority that federal employment offers, making twice what private sector jobs pay and a choice of health insurance options, buses and subways to get to and fro, and all other manner of conveniences paid for by the private sector tax payers bitterly clinging to our bibles, guns and money. Annabell’s life is not perfect, because of US. If only we’d have a kumbaya moment and give in to all of Barry’s agenda, Annabell’s life would be perfect. We are bad people for not providing nirvana for her. After all, it’s our prol duty to do so.

gator70 on February 27, 2010 at 9:45 AM

Thanks to ‘margetto’ for motivating me to do a little more research. I went to Annabell’s twitter page and her business’ page. It’s worse than I surmised. She’s part of the federal Democrat party apparatus. Her company makes leftist propaganda films that no one watches, except maybe party insiders. This means she gets grants from and contracts with the feds or party officials or donors to produce films that make no money. Therefore, she makes four times or more what the avg American is making. She still gets all the advantages except healthcare maybe which would explain why she’s stumping for it at her Coffee Grinder web site. Like others have said, this it total astroturf and agitprop. Comically transparent.

Precisely, the term Tea Party has both mundane and symbolic meaning. The term Coffee Party has only the mundane meaning; it only gains symbolic significance with this Tea Pary opposition group.

Good luck with your coffee talk, lefties, but I doubt it will catch on.

Perhaps you might have more success with a Hookah Party.

Firefly 76: I noticed that too. She’s so interconnected with the Dems it’s not funny, except that she was so easily exposed. I think it’s safe to say that she is a Dem apparatchik. What is really galling is that she makes a comfortable living contributing nothing and it’s all at our expense.

Do a whois query on their coffeepartyusa.com website. The .com info is private, but the .org site is registered to that chick’s boyfriend, Eric Byler, and the Real Virginians for Webb organization.

Plus, if you go to the Real Virginians for Webb website realvirginiansforwebb.com, the main contact people are….Annabel Park and Eric Byler.

Ah, so Annabel Park, “concerned citizen” rises from the ashes again. Anything to extend her 15 minutes of fame.

Let me refresh some memories: Annabel Park and her sidekick, Eric Byler, did the “9500 Liberty” series on YouTube about an illegal sign posted on a property in Manassas, VA which called the enforcement of immigration law in Prince William County, VA “raaaaaacist”. Their videos were shoddy, biased and not “documentaries” but rather propaganda, and pretty crappy Agit-Prop at that.

These two have had wet dream fantasies about being the next Michael Moore for years now, and are always looking for an angle to create news about themselves and interest.

And everyone who doesn’t agree with them is RAAAAACCCCIIIIST!

“Concerned Citizen” Park is a diehard Astroturfer and Obamatron and a total flake. If her lips are moving, she’s lying.

“Coffee Party” bwwwaaaa haaaa haaaa haaa !!

How does conducting negotiations in the Reid’s office, with only leading Democrats invited, and then presenting the results to the Senate to be voted up or down, without even giving anyone time to read the legislation, constitute fair and open negotiations?

Does your worthless life have a purpose now?

I have a beautiful wife and two beautiful boys in my life, as well as a little girl on the way…my life has worth. Thanks for the concern though! Have some Starbucks and calm down. You seem…nervous. There’s nothing for you to fear; it’s just a couple of marxist/communist/socialist/progressives getting together for some caffelattes. What harm could it do? Just ignore us. (hops in environmentally sound hybrid, turns on Coldplay, and heads to Whole Foods to pick up some up arugula.) LOL!

I tried posting a rebuttal to the “US Army Veteran: The Tea Party doesn’t represent me”, and here is what I came up with when I clicked “Preview”:

I think that there are 2 that should be tackled in tandem. Healthcare is a done deal. It may not be what EVERYONE wants, but it does have some legs to it, and now the only direction that this issue can go is up now. In other words, the foundation of keeping the insurance companies at bay with FORCING them to pay for the coverage that they are supposed to be giving their customers in the first place; which is pathetic in itself! The 2 issues that we need to take care of now SIMULTANEOUSLY is job creation AND financial reform. We NEED jobs, so that is self explanatory; however, I feel that finance is where America needs to fix ASAP! Wall Street has their hands in EVERYTHING: Healthcare, Environment reform, Immigration(big business racing to the bottom with wages) reform, ELECTIONS, etc. Money moves EVERYTHING! We need to monitor and regulate the flow of ALL funding in our country. We need regulate campaign contributions, PAC contributions, questionable investment vehicles, money trading, etc. I feel that money is the trunk of the tree and all the other issues are the branches. Take care of the source, and the others will follow along by necessity

Obviously, this is NOT what I wrote. See the full details HERE

As of 8:25 pm, I have not had my comments (or the faux statement) posted.

Is this site for real? Or are we seeing the first salvo in the Clinton/Carville attack on the Tea Party?
