The Coffee Party: Try Not to Laugh -Part 1-


I just got through looking into this new “grass roots” movement called the Coffee Party (isn’t that cute?).  In a nutshell, the Coffee Party is supposed to be the liberal version of the Tea Party.  I guess the liberals are trying to play a game of ‘anything you can do I can do better,’ or something like that.  Anyway, I decided to check out the website for this new movement that’s underway (I’d say brewing but that pun is rather over-played by now) to see who they are and what they mean to accomplish.

I was first skeptical of the fact that the Coffee Party even HAS an official website.  I mean, the Tea Party has a few groups Like Tea Party Nation and Tea Party Patriots but no actual central command center.  Everything the Coffee Party is seems to be founded by this one URL.  I’ll get to more on this matter in a later post (including info on the not-so grassroots founders) but first I want to delve into the meat of the matter.  I’m going to take you on a guided tour of the Coffee Party website and point out all the silly little nuances about it that make it possibly the saddest attempt at mobilizing a citizenry I’ve ever seen.

Our first big laugh is right on the front page.  Upon logging on you will see a paragraph on the right side of the screen called the Civility Pledge.  Let’s see what it says…

As a member or supporter of the Coffee Party, I pledge to conduct myself in a way that is civil, honest, and respectful toward people with whom I disagree. I value people from different cultures, I value people with different ideas, and I value and cherish the democratic process.

Now remember, this is supposed to be the foil to the Tea Party.  This is the Yin to our Yang.  So, with that in mind, let’s see what they are saying in this little pledge here.  The entire paragraph insinuates that Tea Partiers are rude, disrespectful and don’t value differences.  After all, liberals have been nothing but willing to talk out our differences and be respectful of our differences, right?

Yea, those people sound REALLY ready to sit down and hear a different opinion respectively.  The Tea Party movement was met with nothing but hostility and anger from the left and many liberals STILL think that the ONLY driving motivator behind every single member of the Tea Party is (you guessed it) RACISM!  Millions of people marching in the streets all over the country and all they can think is that we all just hate black people.  Great powers of deduction there, don’t you think?

A quick pop over to their “About Us” page shows more of the same.  Diversity is mentioned twice in the short section about what the movement apparently stands for, which is…NOTHING!  Seriously, they don’t stand for anything.  Read the page…now read it again.  Find me any specific goal this movement has other than having the whole country sit around the campfire singing Koom By Ya while our camp councilor plays his guitar!  They’re trying to be a foil to the Tea Party and they don’t even have a platform?  Are you kidding me?  The Tea Party makes it very clear what they stand for: smaller government, sticking to the constitution, lowering taxes, stopping reckless spending, make politicians accountable.  Our goals are clearly laid out.  Watch this video from Lee Doren as he watched on from one of the Coffee Party events.

They sat around in a coffee shop and TRIED TO COME UP WITH SOMETHING TO BE FIGHTING FOR!  What a joke!  What’s more, they’re big national event was to meet in coffee shops around the country and just talk!  Is this a national, grassroots rally or a support group for whiners?!  Let’s compare what you just saw to a National Tea Party rally (the first meeting of Tea Party Activists) on April 14, 2009.

What a difference, but it’s not surprising.  It’s not the money or resources a movement has but the spirit of its members that’s important.  You know the old saying that one farmer defending his home is stronger than a dozen hired soldiers?  Well, that’s where the Coffee and Tea parties are different.  The Tea Party was born out of disgust with how our government was spiraling out of control and destroying our lives.  Our nation, our home, hangs in the balance!  We take to the streets to try and save our nation!  These coffee people don’t even seem to know why they are there in the first place!

I have SO much more to say about this so there’s going to be more to come.  Next time I’ll tackle the Coffee Party’s laughable grasp of American history and politics.
