PELOSI ON THE TEA PARTY: THEY ARE ASTROTURF

In fact, it was Obama campaign’s chief strategist David Axelrod who perfected “Astroturfing” to shape public opinion and manufacture fake public support. Business Week reported back on March 14, 2008: “Axelrod operates a second business, ASK Public Strategies, that discreetly plots strategy and advertising campaigns for corporate clients to tilt public opinion their way…ASK’s predilection for operating in the shadows shows up in its work. On behalf of ComEd and Comcast, the firm helped set up front organizations that were listed as sponsors of public-issue ads. Industry insiders call such practices “Astroturfing,” a reference to manufacturing grassroots support.”
NANCY PELOSI COMPARED OBAMACARE OPPONENTS TO NAZIS
Aug. 4, 2009: Nancy Pelosi falsely accused protesters of “carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on healthcare.” But it never angered her when leftist protesters called George Bush a Nazi.
“I think they’re Astroturf. You be the judge. They’re carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on healthcare.”

Nancy Pelosi replied when asked if the protests were a sign of legitimate grassroots opposition to the Obama health care plan. (Aug. 4, 2009)
