Screw the Farmers Market. Here’s how to spend Saturday, May 17.
With legislative elections approaching, we must be active and effective. We must learn to organize and communicate our message at a grassroots level. We need new leaders to come forward at the local level, to take a stand for free-market and limited government principles. …
American Majority, in partnership with the Ethan Allen Institute, is pleased to announce that we will be holding a New Leaders and Activist Training in Rutland, Vermont.
Oh boy oh boy oh boy.
The session costs a mere 20 bucks (10 for students) and “includes lunch.” Such a deal.
Topics include planning a campaign, fundraising, and “connecting with voters.” Presumably the latter category includes How To Avoid Saying Stupid Shit About Women, How To Avoid Saying Stupid Shit About Minorities, and How To Make A Tired Discredited Message Seen Fresh And Relevant.
American Majority’s purpose is to develop a “national farm team of conservative leaders.” It’s another cog in the vast right-wing machine of innocuously-named “educational” organizations. More damning details from SourceWatch:
American Majority is involved in organizing protest and the health care “Recess Rallies” occurring in August 2009 in House districts. They also participate in Tea Party rallies…
Kenneth P. Vogel of Politico.com credited the organization with providing “deep-pocketed backing” of groups involved in the Wisconsin Supreme Court race in 2011, and grouped them with the Tea Party Express.
American Majority works with Michelle Malkin, RedState.com, American Liberty Alliance, Smart Girl Politics, Americans for Limited Government, FreedomWorks, the Sam Adams Alliance and other groups to organize opposition to health care reform.
That about sums it up. Welcome to Vermont, conservative nutbars! And our thanks to Rob Roper and the Ethan Allen Institute for bringing these folks to our state.
