Forum Post: Freedomworks Disappointed in Beck ROI

The forum has been inundated with "Beckites" for the last few weeks.

Perhaps in a last ditch effort to prove his worth to the GOP?

It's that Dick Armey guy again, the one that "gifted" us with FLAKESnews in the first place.

Is anyone surprised at this?

8 million in severance for another "failed" manager.

While WallStreet finds ways to make your pensions and IRAs worth less every day.

Yep. It's so damn insane that it is almost laughable.

Lets see if he's good to his word.

The agreement, he says, means he’ll “never have to work again forever.”

He'll just donate. Ya.

Such a makeover, Kibbe wrote, can begin if FreedomWorks courts so-called "Ron Paul Millennials," the loud, loyal twentysomethings who in 2008 and 2012 followed the GOP libertarian presidential candidate from one stump speech to the next. Kibbe noted that FreedomWorks plans to reach out to blacks and Hispanics with a new "Black and Brown" tour, starring a Brazilian immigrant and tea party activist named Ana Puig. And he touted FreedomWorks' growing online presence, with 2.1 million members on its email list and 4 million Facebook fans.


You know, at some point the piece of the brain that deals with time and consequences will grow in, One hopes that within the next four years it will occur for many,

I think, GF, that you are one of the few who understands why I put the (R) in libe(R)tarian.

The Freedomworks black and brown tour...............Absurd.

Perhaps they could get Nugent to headline?

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

That is insane. I love this game of little truth-telling. Notice how the big jack offs are all "coming out" and enduring a little public humiliation now and I would lay money that they hope to sink into obscurity so that they can start this all over again. Yeah, Nugent................

I hate Nugent.

Selling snake oil, with the correct "makeover" and marketing approach.

Will they ever figure out that it's their entire platform and approach that needs adjustment?

I don't think so.

Will we remember how much quicker the inadequate response was for the conse(R)vative Southern area devastated by Katrina then it's been for the more liberal easterners affected by Sandy?

I have nothing good to say about today's conse(R)vatives, not that the Dems are all that much better, just that the GOP is so very much worse..

Selling snake oil, with the correct "makeover" and marketing approach.

That is exactly it. The kicker is that they have spent so much time treating all Latinos as the enemy and doing so through legislation that this entire process is going to be a waste of time and it won't sink in because.........in that world view everyone and everything is for sale.

I don't have anything good to say about them either.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

What's hard to believe is that they used that exact term......"black and brown" tour.

My wife was totally disgusted when I told her..

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

Overt racism? I believe it. They have managed to get away with covert racism for so long that they no longer even bat an eye.

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

Dick Armey?

The probabilities would be high that you are correct.

If they actually attempt to do a "roll out" of the tour, you can be sure that term will given a "makeover" by way of expensive, linguistics analysis.

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

IDK, the linguistics analysis seems to be coming pretty cheap these days on the forums. Mayhap they intend to baffle with bullshit. Again.

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

I hate to say it, but bullshit's been their most effective tool so far.

These days, it's like they have every single conspiracy theorist working overtime for them as well.

I've posted info on drug and alcohol abuse on WallStreet and in London's financial district..................................It was just plain ignored.

They just gotta get back to the bullshit.

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

Yep. Give 'em some facts and watch them spin.

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

It never fails.

Look!!!

There's one now in another thread.

Ignoring, this one of course..............:)

[-] 1 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

lol.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

And now the follow up story........:)

Turns out Dick had no idea he was talking to Media Matters!!!

Now that's (R)eplican't leadership.........................:)
