Tea Partiers: We Shall Overcome!

April 29, 2010

First they called Tea Partiers racists. Then they called them violent. Then they threatened to infiltrate the Tea Parties. Now the President has called out the SWAT team on a group of Americans singing God Bless America.

For those unversed in the tactics of the Left, there are a couple of angles being played here.

1) They are attempting to freeze the movement and define it, so that they can ridicule it. That is classic Alinsky.

2) The Left is trying to tweak the movement and get it riled up. Why would they do this? Simple, they are doing it to probe where the most reactionary elements within the Tea Party exist so that they can target them for potential confrontation. The Left would love nothing more than to successfully provoke a physical confrontation with the Tea Party. It is the same tactic they use against the police when they try to provoke them into a violent response by taking over streets and buildings.

There is one sure fire way to make these tactics backfire on the Left, and it involves taking a page from their playbook. Whenever any Tea Party is being provoked, they should break out into song, specifically, the civil rights anthem “We Shall Overcome.”

Not only is it completely appropriate given the struggle at hand, it has the added benefit of being a song the Left thinks it owns. They will be enraged that Tea Partiers dare sing that song. They don’t want the Tea Party peacefully singing. They want them fighting in confrontation. The fact that they would be peacefully singing a song the Left feels it owns would make their heads explode.

Don’t take the Left’s bait, Patriots. When the Left calls the SWAT team, sing this song. When the Left tries to provoke violence, sing this song.

We Shall Overcome. Learn it. Live it.

    I’m not a very good singer. I would just screw it up by singing off key. Tell you what – I’ll stand silenty and composed with middle finger extended. OK?
