Color Me White, Fearful, Poorly Informed and Fond of the Free Market (Though I Am In Fact Its Victim)

by

At last! A brazen propaganda tool to turn your children into loyal
Tea Party-ettes! The Tea Party for Kids! is a "very pleasant song, coloring and activity book
on Liberty, Faith Freedom and so much more!," reads its blurb, which
goes on to cite vague and grammatically incorrect goals such as
"participate, self-reliance, work, and responsiblity." It also features a
cover where all the kids want to make lots of money, plus
connect-the-dot games, all of which presumably end in Havana or
someplace where Muslims live.

 "When the government does not do its job properly we may
have a Tea Party and fire or replace the people that run the
government." - from the Tea Party "coloring book."

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
