St. Louis Tea Party Organizational Announcement

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011 @ 9:41AM

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

St. Louis, MO – The St. Louis Tea Party Coalition Board of Directors has halted official relations with co-founder Dana Loesch. Dana was instrumental in the birth and growth of the Tea Party, nationally and, in particular, in and around St.Louis, Missouri.

Board President Bill Hennessy said, “The St. Louis Tea Party certainly benefited from Dana’s rising stardom and talent. And we can’t help but think our energetic and effective grass roots have propelled Dana’s career. But, as a local Tea Party organization, we need to focus on the grass roots going into 2012.”

“At some point, though,” Hennessy continued, “one party must cleanly break the tension. In this case, the board has moved in the interest of the movement.”

Michelle Moore, Executive Director of St. Louis Tea Party Coalition added, “I wish Dana the best. This organization and the Tea Party movement are forever grateful for her great work.”

The St. Louis Tea Party Coalition will continue its grassroots efforts through The After Party and other events and activities.

    Clearly Dana has to follow her career which may include supporting establishment republicans. CNN not exactly conservative. Only a matter of time…..

    This split should have been done quietly and not so as to tell the far left what dirty laundry The Tea Party has.  This should have been done so not to give the left more ammunition  for their foul propaganda.  I thought all involved were smarter than that.

    Dana Loesch wrote, “Yes, I will delete
    comments from Progressive Conservatives who seek to print libel on my page by
    quoting falsehoods promoted by Media Matters. Don’t like it? Don’t spread lies,
    then.” I guess in Dana’s mind I am one of those she deleted. However, I do not
    lie. The following are the comments I posted. I ask, where are the lies?

     Ed Martin is
    the true conservative in the US Congressional race for the newly formed 2nd
    District in Missouri and he deserves to be supported. The Democrat/Statist’s policies and rhetoric are
    detrimental to this country. Being concerned with the direction this country is
    headed Ed Martin wanted to do something about it. Therefore, Ed Martin ran
    against Russ Carnahan with a Conservative message for the Third Congressional District of Missouri in
    the 2010 election when no establishment Republican wanted to do so. The Third
    Congressional District of Missouri in 2010 favored the Democrats.  He came up a little short of votes to win on
    election night.

    Why should a candidate run
    for office? Should they run only if they are in a secure district, hoping for an
    easy victory or should they run because the opposing party’s policies and
    rhetoric are detrimental to this country? The establishment GOP did not run
    against the Incumbent Russ Carnahan. Why? Why did they not challenge Russ
    Carnahan or Dick Gephardt in the past? Was it because they never wanted to
    challenge the Democrats and the Status quo? Was it because it would have been a
    tough election? Was it because that was Dick Gephardt’s District, and the
    Democrat/Statists owned and were entitled to that fiefdom.    

    Now, the newly formed 2nd
    District favors a Republican Candidate and Ann Wagner enters the race. Why
    didn’t Ann Wagner challenge Russ Carnahan or Dick Gephardt in prior elections? Ed
    Martin is a Conservative and did the leg work in the previous election and his
    positions have not changed, therefore he deserves to be supported. There
    is much work to be done to get America back on track and it starts with
    electing common sense conservatives like Ed Martin to be the people’s
    representatives.

    Ed Martin is the true conservative in the US
    Congressional race for the newly formed 2nd District in Missouri. Ed Martin was endorsed by
    the St. Louis Tea Party in the 2010 election, however this time there are
    factions in the Tea Party who no longer support Ed Martin, but instead are
    supporting Ann Wagner. Whether Ann is a Conservative or not, is not the point; my
    question is, “Where is the
    loyalty?” Ed did the leg work when he ran against Russ Carnahan with a Conservative message for the Third Congressional District of Missouri in
    the 2010 election when no establishment Republican wanted to do so, because the
    Third Congressional District of Missouri favored the Democrats. In the end he
    came up a little short of votes to win the election.      Ed is now running in the newly formed 2nd,
    which favors the Republicans and his positions have not changed. So why would
    someone who supported Ed in the previous campaign no longer want to support him
    now? What are their reasons? This country is in dire
    straights and there is much work to be done to get America back on track. It
    starts with electing common sense conservatives like Ed Martin to be the
    people’s representatives.

    Tea Party
    Patriots are Americans who are frustrated over what has been happening in
    Washington and want to do something about it. Tea Party people are Patriotic
    Americans who are concerned about their country. Tea Party people want their
    leaders to follow the Constitution; they want limited Government; less taxes
    and for Government to control and cut spending. Therefore, anyone or any Candidate
    who possess those attributes can call themselves a Tea Party Patriot or Candidate.
    I possess those attributes and I was a “Tea Party” Candidate before
    there was a Tea Party.

    It
    appears that some people say they are the Tea Party, but they do not want to
    help elect or endorse Conservative candidates. What do they want to do, sit
    around the camp fire holding hands drinking tea singing kumbuyya? The goal of
    the Tea Party should be to support and help elect Conservative candidates who
    want limited government and who will follow the Constitution. Otherwise, what’s
    the point? In order the change the direction this country is headed we need to
    elect Conservative candidates.

    I do not LIE, and I did not have an epiphany
    after 9/11 and converted from a liberal, who supported and campaigned for the
    rapist Bill Clinton, to a Conservative. As I stated I was a “Tea
    Party” Candidate before there was a Tea Party.

    Tea Partiers are assholes.

    Eric Boehlert is already trumpeting this on Twitter.  I suggest the message be taken down.  No one outside of the involved parties needs to know this.
