Let’s call this what it is: exploitation.
For weeks, I’ve been reporting on how TheTeaParty.net Leadership Fund uses ‘petitions’ and ‘Draft’ schemes as a way to make money and build big mailing lists.
Today, Backer and the TPLF are at it again.
A new email about ‘Draft Sarah Palin’ is a humdinger, with copy written to seperate well-meaning patriots from their money, including saying in bold “you can be a tangible part of saving our nation from slipping into the vast sea of liberal socialism.”
How does sending money to Dan Backer and TheTeaParty.net Leadership Fund accomplish that? It DOESN’T.
Palin isn’t running. She isn’t going to run. And IF she ran, she has a HUGE war chest.
So giving money to the group wont do a thing to stop the sea of liberal socialism but it will make money for TheTea Party.Net Leadership Fund.
Here’s the email in its entirety. See for yourself how manipulative it is.
Covering this story cost me my job at Breitbart Texas when Brandon Darby fired me and then tried to discredit me with the help of TeaParty.Net Treasurer Dan Backer, who signed this promotion. As I posted a few weeks ago.
Was Backer accomplice Darby paid to shut me up? He won’t answer.
