15-Minutes of Shame – Jason Levin and His Tea Party Delusions

Crazy Conspiracies!

Remember the “Crash the Tea Party” guy? He is Jason Levin, seen in the photo at right with his “disguise” with which he hoped to crash a Tea Party in order to discredit it. Levin, an Oregon schoolteacher, was placed on administrative leave before being allowed back in the  classroom. However, it now appears that he is vying for another job: news writer. His blog analysis about who was behind the Times Square bomb plot fits almost perfectly into the mainstream media pattern in reporting on the plot. First Levin, like many in the MSM (and NY mayor Bloomberg) who at least made that charge by implication, blamed the Tea Party people (emphasis added):

UPDATE MAY 03 Suspect currently being questioned by law enforcement.

Anonymous sources have reported that a suspect is currently being questioned in the Bridgeport / New Haven CT area. The suspect is a middle age white male, has a history of strong political views, and considers himself a Sarah Palin Tea Party express activist. An arrest is expected within days.

Anonymous sources at the scene have reported that the terrorist attack is likely related to theSarah Palin Tea Party movement. “Much like the 911 attackers, Sarah Palin’s Tea Party movement also has shown a strong dislike of the United States government.” one source reported.

I followed the link over to Levin’s blog and found this (emphasis added):
May 4th. A message from Jason Levin concerning this article:The tea bagging terrorists have been filling my PM box with there usual rantings….NO, I will not retract my story.

I stick by my story as written. The Tea Party is responsible for the Times Square bombing. Perhaps not physically, but there hatred for the current administration gives fuel to the fire. Since they are on the same page as foreign terrorists concerning there hatred of America, they should be treated the same.

I am sure the Tea Party movement is secretly funded by Al Queda and that it is only a matter of time before there Timothy McVay clones attack OUR country.

What do you say to this other than to point out the following commentary from LR on Faisal Shahzad:

Naturalized citizen and Islamic Terrorist Bomber Faisal Shahzad opposed the War in Iraq. New reports suggest he held views much in line with leftwing AntiWar activists who fiercely opposed the Bush administration’s policies in Iraq and Afghanistan.

There are even indications he may have been aligned with the so-called “Truther movement.” A witness told the Associated Press, that Shahzad believed that Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with the attacks of 9/11. In truth, Hussein harbored top Al Qaeda Terrorist Abu Massad al Zarcawi and hosted two Al Qaeda-linked Terrorist training camps: Salman Pac and Answar Al-Islam….

….Yes, indeed. Around that time many Americans did not like Bush either: Michael Moore, Cindy Sheehan, Al Gore, NetRoots, the Greens, the entire Progressive wing of the Democrat Party, and a host of other AntiWar advocates.

Is it safe now to begin referring to Shahzad as a “Liberal Progressive”?

I laugh (insert here: *hardee har har*) at the inane commentary/mantras of those from the left (“mainstream media” and bloggers) about the Tea Party and other mantras. All I can think of is Dumb & Dumber:
