Como se dice "astroturf" en espanol?

Are you still laughing over the "regressives" absurd conservative "astroturf ' and"disruption" meme over the abomination of Obamacare?

This stuff ought to provide even more amusement. It took place not far from where I formerly worked during my time in Denver back in 1988-89.

I wonder what the chances are that these characters had green cards?

"...[the area] is adjacent to Denver’s day laborer pickup street, Park Avenue. Being fluent in Spanish, El Marco asked these guys '¿hablan ingles?' 'casi nada' was the reply from our amigo on the left.

I asked him if he could tell me what the signs said. '¿Quien sabe?' (who knows?) was all he said to me, with a big grin. I’m kicking myself for not asking them how much they were getting paid to support the grassroots..."

More at El Marco:

Excerpt from the text:

"Obama, on March 18, said 'I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry. I’m angry. What I want us to do, though, is channel our anger in a constructive way.'

At that time, he wanted people protesting in the front yards of AIG executives. Now the DNC has ordered this harassment of grassroots dissenters against their statist goals. While in other parts of the country, this Democrat Party activity has descended into violence, what we have seen so far here today is only annoying and childish behavior.

It’s David Axelrod, Obama’s senior advisor, who is famous for inventing astroturfing. Now he is using the same techniques he deployed for corporations to intimidate political freedom in this country. Here is an article about Axelrod and his companies if you want to study up."

We'll just think of our opposition to Obamacare as the anger management lessons the SEIU and other Obamathugs need.



  1. I can't believe the HuffPo says Axelrod created astroturfing.

    Does Ed Cone know about this?

    I wondered about astroturfing last fall when I heard about Obama campaign volunteers in Indianapolis causing a disturbance at his campaign office because they had not been paid yet.

    Whod've thunk it?

  2. "Does Ed Cone know about this?"

    If he doesn't acknowledge it, it doesn't exist.

    I think its time for another Converge Right gathering.
