    "Americans For Prosperity sponsors Tea Party workshop"

    "Rightwing campaign funded by Koch brothers has funded seminar on how to exploit social media to attack politicians"

    "Americans for Prosperity, the rightwing campaign funded in part by the energy billionaires the Koch brothers, is working with the Tea Party movement to increase its impact through the use of new media and social networking."

    PLUTOCRACY Anyone?

    Link to full article:
    Americans For Prosperity sponsors Tea Party workshop | World news | The Guardian

    Free speech?

    For those too lazy or taking pleasure from their ignorance one more quote and an observaton:

    "Pick your least favourite public official and beat the crap out of him every day," Telford told the audience. "It's fun, and people will start to notice and you will have a tremendous impact.

    "The way to beat the left is to link more and more to one another and to link to articles that are in tune with our ideology and that will push the articles to the top of Google search."
    GEE, sounds familiar, Echo Chamber anyone?

    It's about time.

    The Obama campaign had hit men on all the blogs in 2008.

    Quit shitting your pants because you're losing.

    My point has not been partisan, it has been generic. Can you say the same?
    Besides, if you were not willfully ignorant, you would see the difference in our two posts. I hope others read of the tactics being taught and see the dangers inherent in censorship, as reported in the OP article, linked.

    I don't care if the other side does it as long as I can do it.

    Neither of us are free if government tells us we can't.

    Your head must be so far up your ass...the issue of campaign financial reform and the influence of money on members of Congress and state legislatures has been an issue for years.
