“CNN Caper” Reveals the Con Behind the Tea Party and Mama Grizzlies

Blind folds, hidden cameras, boats, a sex tape machine, pornographic magazines, champagne and strawberries….sounds like one of those cheesy porns they consume in the Bible Belt on Sundays, but no…..this is a the “CNN Caper”, a Right Wing Activist Plan. It’s politics, Tea Party Style. In other words, it’s pornography, meant to titillate those involved and the boys of the Right while in this case also humiliating and controlling the female object. This is the story of the “CNN Caper” — an attempt by Tea Party activists to use sex to discredit a female reporter. But this story also has an unlikely heroine just waiting in the wings to show those Mama Grizzlies what a real feminist looks like.

Now why would you need to set someone up purposely so you could discredit them later? The only reason you would ever need to do that is if you wanted to smear the other side with your own filth so you wouldn’t stand out as much and/or they had discovered something bad about you that you needed to discredit. Turns out this female reporter was doing a documentary on the Right. Hmmm…..

Which brings us to the James O’Keefe (of the inaccurately edited and widely discredited ACORN videos) and his plan or the plan of his “mentor” to set up female CNN anchor Abbie Boudreau, lure her to a boat and video tape her secretly as she was surrounded by sex toys that he placed there in advance. Plan to seduce her in order to discredit her, as a video suggesting she was willing to do anything to get her story would be fabricated from set up footage. That was Plan II.

(Continued Below)

Plan I was to set up CNN to report something false about Sarah Palin or the “tea party” (apparently they view these as one in the same) and then give their “friendlies at Fox News” (yes, that is an admission that Fox is their propaganda network, but also that they view news as an aggressive act of war) a head’s up so Fox could bust CNN, thereby deliberately attempting smearing CNN with the same discredited stink of Fox News. Yet these Tea Party activists forget that CNN has not donated millions of dollars to only one party nor is it staffed by every, or even one, Democratic presidential candidate for 2012. Small details.

This is how the Right thinks. This is how the Right operates.

They set about deliberately and preemptively discrediting a news organization that is doing a documentary on them. This leads to only one conclusion: Tea Party activists know they come off poorly in the documentary — why else would they want to discredit CNN before the documentary even aired?

The Tea Party has a lot to hide, after all, their candidates are empirically proven liars and extremists. So, to counter all of that they hatch plans to set up legitimate news organizations so they can discredit them. They also hatch plans to use sexual aggressiveness and suggestiveness against a female reporter in order to discredit her.

O’Keefe’s script/Plan (he now claims he has nothing to do with this document, but once again, we know this guy to be a liar so why would we give him ANOTHER chance? Oh, just for kicks…OK, well, he lied and CNN has the emails to prove it so let’s move on) lays out how he thinks Abbie Boudreau, a CNN reporter, is setting him up to show the world that he is not a journalist (gosh, O’Keefe, you took care of that one on your own — to deny that makes you crazy) so he is going to set her up by seducing her on this boat of sex. His plan says:

“….this bubble headed bleach blond who comes on at five will get a taste of her own medicine, she’ll get seduced on camera and you’ll get to see the awkwardness and the aftermath. Sit back and enjoy the show…..”

Sexual anger much? Wow. A pause while we note O’Keefe’s clear sexual issues and wonder just how widespread this is within the conservative movement. I’m just sayin’. Too bad this attitude isn’t contained in the GOP to just the young men.

Nope. This is brought to us from the party who is bringing us 5 GOP senate candidates who think a woman should be forced to bear her rapists baby (literally), is running several female abusers as candidates, is running a Tea Party candidate in Ohio who is being charged with sexually assaulting a young female conservative activist and sells all of this on a network being sued repeatedly for sexual harassment and gender discrimination and bias (that would be Fox via News Corp).

But all of that gender hate is wrapped in a mantle of faux feminism and sold to you as “Mama Grizzlies” standing up for their cubs.

What kind of woman would support a movement chock full of entitled frat boys who consistently use sex as a weapon to intimidate and control women? This movement is being led by Sarah Palin, a self-described “feminist”. Not only does Palin not condemn this behavior, but she endorses candidates and perpetrators of said conduct.

But in this story, we have a heroine. A young woman named Izzy Santa who was O’Keefe’s working partner. Izzy warned Abbie about James’ plan to get her on his boat. Izzy has since lost her job and hired an attorney. It’s ironic that a young girl would be the one to turn this deviant in, isn’t it? O’Keefe has long been obsessed with selling himself as some kind of Lothario pimp of the Right, with casting and props straight from the ’70’s. It’s patriarchy 101.

But Izzy took a stand for a sister, and that makes her a genuine heroine and feminist in my mind. She may be one of the few conservative feminists out there. You don’t hear any of the female “leaders” of the Tea Party standing up for Izzy, do you? Or standing up to bullies like O’Keefe? Nope. They’re all a-ok with a female reporter being lured onto a “pleasure palace” to be set up by a sexually deviant and aggressive young man whom I suspect has deeply troubling mental and emotional issues. Girls, when we talk about why conservatives aren’t feminists, this is what we are talking about. It isn’t about your ideology, it’s about your failure to stand up for your sisters when their sex and gender are being exploited and abused by the patriarchy. Watch the Mama Grizzlies scatter when their fellow sisters are being set up and spat out by the Big Daddy machine.

The next time a Tea Partier accuses you of judging them unfairly, dares to suggest they are a feminist movement or tries to co-opt the civil rights movement for their own purposes, remember with whom you are dealing. Those few Libertarians who thought they were in a genuine movement should distance themselves immediately from these tactics, denounce and condemn them or be prepared to have their ideas smeared right along with the rest of the Tea Party. Instead of blaming the news for reporting on the facts, the Right can blame O’Keefe, Breitbart and the rest of the Right wing fabricators for the loss of respect for their movement.

The Tea Party is a movement of fabrications being funded by far right extremists and being lead by well documented liars who will do or say anything to get what they want. They have no scruples. They will use sex against a woman because it is her “weak” point – the thing by which they can humiliate and shame her, and hence control her. With minorities they will use race to achieve the same ends. With gay people they will use sexual orientation. Etc.

These “isms” are all a means to an end; a form of control utilized by the ruling class, the powerful, to maintain their power over others. And that is why, my friend, you feel such palpable sexual and gender violence slithering through the Right wing right now. When threatened, the beast lashes out.
