Freedom Connector: Get Organized

Glenn’s been talking about the left’s community organizing efforts, and he promised to reveal an alternative solution for the right and the Tea Party on Monday. That solution? Freedom Connector.

“A year ago a group sat in my office and a year ago the tea parties and the Freedom Works and the 9/12 project that they were fighting amongst themselves.  Not all of them.  I don’t know if anybody remembers the show I did with the, all the leaders of the Tea Party and I said, is there problems?  Is there a problem?  And we actually, one member or one Tea Party group was disinvited because it was too contentious and they were also backing racists at the time.  And the point of that show was we must put our differences aside and grow up and be adults.  This isn’t about power,” Glenn said.

“The problem has been that too many people, they get their own group and then they feel like, no, this is my group and we’re going this way, and what I have tried to do with the idea of the 9/12 project was values and principles.  Let those be your guide, and we can argue about things.  For instance, Penn Jillette and I have not talked, have not spoken.  I mean, he haven’t reached out to him and he hasn’t reached out to me.  So it’s not like we’re not on speaking terms.  But he is a very antireligious guy.  I am a very pro religious guy.  I just don’t believe in shoving religion down anybody’s throat.  But I believe God is wildly important.  He does not.  I don’t know how he feels about, you know, me and everything else.  I know that Penn Jillette and I who disagree vehemently, I have no problem with him.  I have no problem with him because he’s not trying to control other people’s lives.  He’s not trying to go out and tell me that I can’t go to church.  And I’m not telling him to go to church.  I’m going to force you, Penn, that’s ridiculous.  That is the kind of connection that we need.  Freedom connection.”

“A year ago Freedom Works came into my office and I said, look, we have got to be able to connect and let the people connect.  They don’t have to go through one organization or another.  We have to be able to have the 9/12 project and all the different tea parties and all of the different, you know, groups that believe in the Constitution.  And then you have to have a way for people who aren’t in any group or don’t want to be any group be able to see what everybody is doing.  It’s taken them a year.  I had forgotten about it.  They called a meeting with me last week and they came into my office and they sat down and I said ‑‑ I didn’t even know what the meeting was about and I said, guys, before you start, I have to ask you, please, please tell me that there is someone that has spent time and money studying Organizing For America, moveon.org, everything that Google is now doing.  Please tell me that somebody is seeing the way they are using the Internet in connection.  And they just smiled at me and they said, you don’t remember our conversation a year ago?  And I said, no.  And you said, that’s what you said to us a year ago:  Find a way to connect without any middleman.”

“ I’m not loyal to any one person.  I’m loyal to an idea.  And anyone that will connect with me on those ideas, I’m in.  I’m tired of waiting around for leaders, I am tired of people trying to tell us exactly what we’re supposed to do, et cetera, et cetera.  The American people will figure it out.  But community organizing is going to change the world.  And last week I said to you, before I found out about the Freedom Connector, if you’re not organized, you lose.”

    I just love this president, as he tries to divide the country, We the People become more unified to replace him. So, out of some thing we do not want we get some thing we needed. I just love the way GOD is in control!

    I have to say that overall, I am disappointed in how this has progressed over the past year.  The engineers creating this thing obviously don’t know how social media connections really interconnect, or they are too hung up on how to make money on it, or they don’t really understand how small organizations really function and make things happen.  In addition, this provides yet another separate network that must be maintained rather than leveraging existing networks and just making them easier to use… and there is still not an efficient way to do this from my hip, which is where the future really lies…how do we get there?

    I cannot believe the Fox News poll. The Independents (who I blame for the mess we are in) approve of bho over Romney by 11%. Can someone please explain to me what planet these people are from?  They should just re-register as Democrats. They have lost their minds and their credibility. What a disgraceful group.
