Deneen Borelli to Debunk Wild Accusations Made About Tea Party on Fox Business Channel’s “FreedomWatch” Tonight

Project 21 fellow Deneen Borelli is scheduled to be a guest on tonight’s edition of “FreedomWatch” on the Fox Business Network.

A regular speaker at tea party events, Deneen has been asked to talk about radical claims made by Representative Andre Carson (D-IN), who — during an official Congressional Black Caucus event in Miami on August 22 — made racial accusations that members of the tea party movement would “love to see us as second-class citizens” and “love to see you and me… hanging on a tree.”

In a past New Visions Commentary, Deneen explained the radical campaign of lies and distortions that are directed at the tea party movement in order to smear reformers and throw them off-base.  She wrote:

Slandering tea party activists is apparently a politically expedient necessity because they pack the punch to change the political landscape and knock down President Obama’s progressive agenda.

Dealing the race card has always been a central element of the progressive strategy. By claiming that tea party opposition to President Obama’s agenda is motivated by anger over a black president, progressives hope to transform the debate from one about policy to race, thus marginalizing the tea party’s effectiveness.

“FreedomWatch” airs at 8:00PM eastern and is repeated at 11:00PM eastern.
