(I spy on the extremist from time to time - okay, all the time - (know your enemy) and we SHOULD all join them, infiltrate THEM for a change, counter protest now that we know when and where ahead of time and vote on their evil plans. This was an email letter I received. So I may have also lied to get in... sue me. My commentary is in red... I could not resist.)
More ways to fight back against Tea Party extremists and right-wing corporations.
Thanks for signing our petition yesterday and joining CREDO Action — I wanted to tell you a bit more about who we are and how we fight for progressive change. (socialism)
CREDO is a social change organization that fights for progressive values. (socialism has no values) Like protecting a woman's right to control her own body. (but will tell everyone what to not eat, or say, or do in resistance to anything BUT socialism) Fighting back against radical attacks on our environment. Or trying to rid our political system of the toxic influence of corporate money. (I believe that includes themselves... so there is an upside to this one) CREDO Action organizers Elijah Zarlin and Becky Bond (remember these people and maybe picket their homes in real Liberal Style) deliver a petition to Elizabeth Warren.
Recently, we've helped block the Keystone XL pipeline, defended Planned Parenthood from defunding, convinced advertisers to drop Rush Limbaugh, and pressured Coca Cola to stop funding ALEC. (here they are - you need to go get 'em)
Working for social change has been at the heart of our work since 1985. (but I am sure not adequately funded until recently by Soros to put them in the game) And we've learned many lessons in over 25 years of progressive activism. We believe that real change comes from the grassroots, not the insiders in Washington DC. (liberal grassroots = useful idiots)
And while we lose many more fights than we win, (thanks to us, the Tea Party) we know that if we fight hard for what we really want (rather than preemptively caving as part of some backroom deal), we can shift the debate in a more progressive direction and sometimes we even win victories that no one thought was possible. (more like most of them due to false claims of injustice or so often of racism) As a member of the CREDO Action email list, you will also get to vote for organizations like Planned Parenthood, Rainforest Action Network and Democracy Now! to receive funding from CREDO. (let's all go there and vote no every time... that would really piss them off)
CREDO has a phone company (CREDO Mobile) (CHECK - on boycott list) that generates donations for non-profits fighting for progressive issues. We donate 1% of our customer's phone bills to 40 non-profits every year. Over the last 25 years, we've donated over $70 million, including more than $2 million to Planned Parenthood — $200,000 just in 2011. (we need to start soliciting our side's non-profits to do this if they do not already or make some campaign for companies to do this)
The votes of our customers and CREDO Action members (that's you) (no it isn't I am just a spy) will determine how much they receive.
Liking CREDO on Facebook is a great way to connect with us on a daily basis. (I suggest we all go there and see what they are doing or at least put in our own 'trollage team' posting just to be ornery)
Every day, the political team at CREDO shares the articles we're reading and things we're thinking about on our Facebook page. (know your enemy) Then we look to our Facebook fans — that's you! (again, you're on crack if you think I have the same mental disease as yourselves) — for thoughts on the issues, and we often take your opinions into account when we decide what campaign to pursue next. (think we can all fool them into thinking with common sense?)
If you have ever wanted to be part of the process and want your opinions to shape our work, this is a great way to do so.
We're also working to defeat Tea Party Extremists (now THAT is me in an extreme nutshell.. *rolls eyes*) who are waging a war on women, science and equality, and we'd love for you to join us.
The Tea Party Congress elected in 2010 has been the most extreme in history. (except they forget the beginning of our history was further right than us.. what dopes!) They literally cast votes to redefine rape and to let women die by allowing doctors to deny life-saving medical care. (I didn't really catch that detail from any conservative.. in their platform statement or otherwise... are these people on meth?) CREDO has formed the CREDO SuperPAC to defeat and hold accountable ten of the most odious Tea Party members of Congress. (we need to support the fine congress members)
Learn more and help defeat the Tea Party Ten. (as we should be running to go learn this...)
Thanks again for your activism. You'll be hearing from us soon about urgent opportunities to sign petitions, make calls, attend meetings and protests, and more. (knowing ahead of time where they will be will allow us to wage a counter attack of protestors and a disruption of their meetings.. tit for tat I say) Progressive values are under assault every day in Congress, (THANK GOD) and it's vital that we stay engaged to keep raising critical pressure on decision makers when it matters most.
We'll keep fighting (literally) and we're glad you're with us.
