Think Progress Caught Out Completely Fabricating "Racist" Narrative

I posted something about this yesterday, but wasn't sure of how much fakery was being alleged or could be established. In at least one instance, Think Progress had used Crash the Tea Party agent provocateurs to make the case that the Tea Party was racist.

Well, today comes more analysis. How much was faked or misrepresented? Almost all of it.

Activist 2 is a favorite of Think Progress, and no wonder: he says exactly what they hoped to hear a tea partier say, exclaiming: Im a proud racist, Im white. Think Progress liked this clip so much they played it not once, but twice.

The problem is, Activist 2 isnt a tea party protester. He is a tea party crasher.

Think Progress is well aware of this, as they pulled the few seconds of video from a nearly six-minute video of actual tea party protesters singling him out for scorn and chasing him away!

The guy seems to be wearing a Nazi shirt that just came fresh from a mail-order package. Almost like he just got it, in order to wear to the Tea Party.

This is sweet:

Activist 4?

He is the reason the original 53-second Think Progress video has shrunk down to an even more anemic 50 seconds.

His brief inarguably racist shout of Go home wetbacks! is provably a video from 2006.

Years before the tea party existed.

Nice. Nice.
