Patriot Act: Tea Partiers on the Lookout for Spies
Teabonics: not just for patriots anymore.
In advance of the tea party rally Thursday, local activists are circulating tips for how to spot a liberal prankster seeking to infiltrate, then sabotage. According to a note sent to "patriots," these spies can be detected thus: 1) They make signs with ludicrous allegations against politicians. 2) They can't spell. 3) They dress like slobs.
Sounds like perfect camouflage in a tea party rally. Fortunately, the tea party has an ally with some experience sniffing out spies: Former U.S. Army Lt. Col. Allen West. After the jump, video of West's foolproof method for foiling acts of political espionage.
See? It's as simple as making a clear announcement of the group's antispy policy.
"We're going to attend their rally, but plan to have a bunch of truly ludicrous signs. Things that say "Obama drinks Christian Baby Blood" or "Jesus wrote the constitution". The more misspelled words the better... You could also dress in overalls with no shirt, or a stained "wifebeater" t-shirt, But you get the general idea."
