John Tedesco, Wake County School Board member, was catching heat from the left for speaking at the Raleigh Tea Party.
Chase Foster, a local liberal activist and lobbyist for N.C. Voters for Clean Elections, nearly blew a gasket going after Tedesco at last week’s school board meeting. See WRAL video below.
Foster called the Tea Parties “extremist and sometimes violent.” C”mon. Extremist? Violent? Care to substantiate those statements?
I wonder if Foster has also lectured Kevin Hill, Keith Sutton, Ann McLaurin and Carolyn Morrison for their work with the Democratic Party of Wake County?
At last week’s school board meeting, when asked to list the topic on which he would comment Foster listed “budget”. Mr. Foster did so because he knew it’s not acceptable to use the public comment period to personally attack school board members. Lie to lecture someone on ethics? There are lots of reasons why Mr. Foster’s message rings hallow.
Since Chase is “outing” John Tedesco, for those interested in seeing Chase “outed”, you can can start with http://profiles.friendster.com/992220 or go to http://www.indyweek.com/indyweek/chase-foster/Content?oid=1298960 to learn more about Chase being a professional agitator. Chase helped to organize the Enloe kids and had his picture taken with the students protesting outside the school board meeting.
Shame on Chase for calling the Tea Party people “extremist and sometime violent” and “an angry white mob”. Chase has been to enough Tea Parties himself in Raleigh and in DC on 9/12 and knows better.
Also, if Chase was indeed at the recent Tea Party he rails about, he would have also heard Bill Randall, who is black and a Tea Party participant (imagine that) talk about what real racism is. You can see Bill Randall’s speech at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EIv1lJBervM&feature=related
