The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has sent out a fundraising e-mail to its supporters, seeking to bring in money as a reaction to the Tea Party protests that have disrupted Democrats’ town hall meetings.
The e-mail links to this Web video, attacking three villains Michael Steele, Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck for being behind this:
“We must stand against this tiny, vocal minority,” the e-mail says. “The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has set a goal to raise $50,000 online by Friday, Aug. 14.” (Emphasis theirs.)
Check out the full e-mail, after the jump.
All week, fringe, far-right organizations funded by shady, unreported sources have been ginning up their supporters to disrupt Democratic town hall meetings. The goal: kill every attempt at health care reform and wound President Obama. One leaked memo written by a leader of the Tea Party Patriots tells protesters to “Watch for an opportunity to yell out. … The goal is to rattle him.”
Things have really gotten out of hand. Just see it for yourself:
We must stand against this tiny, vocal minority. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has set a goal to raise $50,000 online by Friday, Aug. 14. Make a contribution toward the goal today. Even a gift of $5 can make a difference.
