The Case Against Tea Party Nation Martyr Melissa Brookstone

October 21, 2011

See also Melissa the Martyr: a victim for wanting America to fail?

Well now it seems that Tea Party Nation activist Melissa Brookstone’s is casting herself as a martyr because of the furor over her manifesto that seeks to harm Americans by calling for the cessation of all job creation. The owner of Colorado Process Servers and a member of several professional associations including NAPPS, PSACO and the PPIAC, Ms. Brookstone made a variety of outrageous claims, including; the President, Democrats in Congress, the media and all progressives are committing treason; that they are part of global conspiracy to destroy our Democracy; that they are socialists; and that they are bent on collapsing the American economy. Therefore, she is going to stop all hiring, and by extension calls for all small businesses to do the same in order to destroy the Obama Administration. IN OTHER WORDS…PROMOTE THE FAILURE OF THE U.S. ECONOMY IN PURSUIT OF HER POLITICAL AGENDA! And now, because she is having to own up to what she advocates she is now saying SHE is the victim of vicious attacks by the liberal smear machine, specifically…

  • She is offended by attacks on her, including the use of a Wanted Poster (without crosshairs I might add and that only says the reward is the gratitude of reasonable Americans) after she calls out the POTUS for treason, damns all media, and accuses all progressives of being socialists.
  • She claims libel for being called a “Tea Party leader” yet she is a leading blogger on Tea Party Nation, and multiple news outlets have reported her as a Tea Bagger Queen, Leader and Activist.
  • She claims this site has made ‘death’ threats, which is not only a lie, but the height of arrogance to think that anyone would bother to go to such lengths over her political views or her opinions. She obviously has us confused with Ann Coulter, or the millions of TPers who love brandishing their weapons as intimidation and threats to those they oppose, such as the threat made against this blog by one of Ms. Brookstone’s supporters, Charlie Z. No Melissa, don’t flatter yourself, you ain’t that important.
  • She blames George Soros as being behind this site and the attacks on her. If only! We’d be driving much nicer cars if that was the case.

But the worst thing is she thinks that she is being terrorized and her profession and livelihood attacked! News flash Melissa…you posted your manifesto in the public domain. Our call to action is to make sure that people know about it, including those you do business with. Come on Ms. Brookstone, have the cajons to hold true to your beliefs! You expressed them, now own them! The Tea Party Nation does not suffer cowards easily!

    THE CASE AGAINST TEA PARTY NATION MARTYR, MELISSA BROOKSTONE

  • Resolved that: The Tea Party, the Tea Party Nation as represented by Melissa Brookstone and the Republican Party, in alliance with a global Corporatist movement, have participated in what appears to be a globalist corporate agenda of securing and controlling wealth, and the waging of class warfare against U.S. citizens and their constitutional rights in the pursuit of happiness, equality, fairness, and indeed our Constitution itself, with the ultimate goal of destroying the democratic institutions of the U.S. and converting us into a corporate controlled Plutocracy.
  • Resolved that: Ms. Melissa Brookstone, as a leader/activist in the Tea Party Nation has demanded and called for what amounts to a jihad against hard working Americans and the efforts to improve the economic well being of the nation and of U.S. citizens, and that because the Tea Party, the Tea Party Nation and the Republican Party are controlled by a cabal of wealthy corporate interests who will not stand up for or support the Democratic institutions that are our foundation, they have allowed this and yielded what are rightfully due to all Americans, the ability to seek and find adequate employment to support themselves and their families.
  • Resolved that: By their agenda and actions, those in the Tea Party, those that are members of Ms. Brookstone’s Tea Party Nation, those that are members of the Republican Party, and those that represent the hidden wealthy corporate interests guiding these efforts, who claim they are dedicated to protecting and defending our Constitution and the American way of life, have committed treason against the United States.
  • Resolved that: The current leadership of both the Tea Party and the Republican Party, in conjunction with conservative anarchists from all around the country, especially those from privileged upper middleclass sanctuaries and the right leaning news media headed by Fox News (and indeed, most of the gutless, cowardly and ratings seeking mainstream news media.) have worked in unison to advance a pro-corporate, an anti-middle class, and an anti-diversity ( anti-disadvantaged, minority, alternative lifestyle, elderly, education, woman, reproductive rights, compassion ) agenda.
  • Resolved that: These same factions expect that, by carrying out a radical pro-corporate agenda, which includes efforts to repeal Obama “Care” and thus inflict on our nation the deadly and destructive healthcare system that has been responsible for millions of deaths and untold misery for Americans, class warfare and the garnering and control of the majority of wealth, and expanding corporate control and domination of our everyday lives, while killing Americans in this country with an environment that is hostile and indifferent to the needs of the poor, sick elderly and disenfranchised, including the redirecting of America’s wealth and money to generate excessive profits to benefit the few ( the average CEO for the S&P 500 companies earned $11,358,445 in 2010, meaning that in one workday they earn $45k, or about 92% of the $49k that the average American household earns in an entire year!!! ), and by controlling and wasting more money than most Americans see in a lifetime, and saying they need this wealth because they are the “job creators”, when in fact all they have “created” have been lobbying jobs to protect their interests and their gravy train.
  • Resolved that: Our Tea Party leaders, the Republican Party politicians that curry the Tea Party’s favor, most of the cowardly and gutless mainstream media led by Fox News, and most of those from the privileged upper middle class enclaves, have now encouraged and supported “The Tea Party Movement” and their demonstrations and disruptions at congressional member town hall meetings and governmental proceedings, which have been perpetrated across the country for most of the last three years, and which are being populated by various agitators, Americans for Prosperity employees and organizers, lobbyists for major corporations and even delegates for wealthy interests like the Koch Brothers, and are protesting against the average Americans, the poor, the elderly, those seeking an education, and those seeking jobs, something I thought I’d never see in my country, in my lifetime.

I, an American, who is part of the vast majority who puts my country and my fellow citizens above my own interests and those of the wealthy corporate interests that seek to destroy our country and our way of life, part of the class that produces the vast majority of real value, filling and performing the important jobs and completing the work that needs to be done in this country, hereby resolve that I will seek to find, silence and ultimately defeat Melissa Brookstone, the Tea Party, the Republican Party, and the wealthy corporate interests that seek to tear down our democracy and forever corrupt the American Dream that we all aspire to.

    Brookstone’s screed is one of the most blazingly stupid things I have ever read. But why, oh why, are so many sites on the left giving her free publicity? Everyone should just be laughing their heads off at someone who is so detached from reality in every way. Well, maybe that would be thoughtless of someone who is really showing signs of serious mental illness. All this talk of treason, etc., is just silly. If Brookstone has a business and refuses to hire anyone when she needs an employee, all she’ll do is shoot herself in the foot–and have absolutely no influence on Obama or the Democratic party. She’s a nut, but one without the power to do even the limited damage that another nut, Orly Taitz, has done. Unless maybe this absurd hysteria keeps on coming from the left about her and she becomes some kind of spokesperson for the nutty right.

    Melissa brookstone, is reprehensible and worthy of the peoples contempt,Her and her teabaggers behave like parasites’ living off the hateful energy they generate. Now more twisted rhetoric as usual.

Stand tall, stand firm, stand together people help rid America, of these parasites who have infested this great country . Vote all republican’s out of office !!!!!!!!!!

    Whether this is treason or whether it is not, it is wrong. These people are so insane they
    think they can get away with anything, because this is what they have been led to believe
    by other idiots. What they don’t realize some of these idiots are getting paid to say what they say, Ms. Brookstone says she is offended about people are saying about her, come on
    what did she really expect? Everybody please vote these people out!
    By the way, George Soros has nothing to do with this, it is the American people!

    #1) Sounds like “Atlas Shrugged”.
    #2) So long as the free market is allowed to function, no one can stop new jobs and employment from occurring. If demand exists, a supplier will emerge. This is truly a tempest in a tea pot.

      Well, you could start by contributing to candidates and causes that will defeat the Tea Party agenda. And of course, make sure you vote for those that oppose their dogma.

    As time goes on the true colors of the Tea Party are becoming clearer. They started out claiming that they were against big government and their spending. Now they’re literally willing to hold the country hostage – willing to harm America – if it would keep this president from having any success. Get America back on it’s feet again and argue about who gets the credit later! That’s the American way!

    THERE ARE LAWS IN THIS COUNTRY AGAINST TREASON, APPARENTLY THE TEA PARTY OR ANY PART THERE OF DOES NOT REALIZE THIS. THE PENALTY IS VERY HARSH. THEY ALL SHOULD BE TRIED FOR TREASON FOR TRYING TO OVER THROW THE GOVERNMENT.

    OF COURSE WE ALL KNOW THESE PEOPLE ARE NOT VERY BRIGHT ANYWAY, WE HAVE SEEN THAT WITH ALL THEIR MISSPELLED SIGNS AND BRINGING GUNS TO THEIR

    ‘Scuse, this is using a cannon against a mouse, where a cat would serve better. The language would also carry more weight if less overcolored and conclusory. No, this is not “levying war against the United States”, however despicable it is, and as no violence has been advocated, it isn’t even sedition. Stop and rethink this approach, lest you make legitimate observations and objections look like somebody’s caricature of ’60’s radicalism.

    • October 22, 2011 10:32 am

      Scuse me, but you miss the irony. If you read Brookstone’s manifesto you would see the I was parroting back her ridiculous narrative where she apparently thinks she gets paid by the word. But thank you for reading. Your comments are appreciated.

    A small fish in a big pond, if they want to get up a petition then write one up on the Koch brothers and Grover Norquist who are, and have been for years, working to subvert our government and are paying politicians through lobbying to carry out their agenda. There is more than enough written and audio proof, but they are billionaires so everyone wants to go after the people that are stupid enough to believe the bull that the koch thinktanks keep spitting out. Idiots like this strictly follow the constitution the way they strictly follow the bible which in their opinion is anyway they want to interpret it, as long as it doesn’t benefit anyone that doesn’t hate everything and everyone as much as they do. Yeah, get a petition like that and I will gladly sign it.

    By the way, the idea of this John Galt business person’s strike is an empty threat. Businesses are always trying to reduce labor to increase profits, but they can’t cut labor below a certain point before they start cutting into their bottom line. And ultimately that’s the only thing that matters to them and so they won’t go there. A business that actually went on a hiring boycott for political reasons would shoot themselves in the foot and eventually go out of business.

    • October 21, 2011 11:11 am

      I think most intelligent people (Brookstone obviouly excluded), knows that from a practical standpoint this is idiocy. But the sentiment is what is galling, and so repulsive. She, and her kind, claim to be strict constitutionalists, yet they seek to deny the basic tenent of the pursuit of happiness because lets face it, being poor and out of work ain’t happy. They want government out of their lives because they decry some large authority impacting their lives, yet they seek to become a large authority that impacts American lives in a harmful way. If there are no consequences for outrageous and dangerous rhetoric, then how can they be expected to monitor their behavior? I think, as a small business (process server), she should learn that her dangerous and extremist views and rhetoric have real world consequences.

    I’ve burned up some bandwidth looking for her contributions to mankind and she makes a living as a Process server in the Denver area. I imagine she is serving divorce papers, foreclosures, and other civil suits. This means her livelihood is derived from the court system. She also owns exotic birds. She also has an Ham radio operator’s license. Her story kind of casts a light on the Tea party movement and the sense of powerlessness that she and her fellow Tea partiers now express. They use the meetup social media platform to hold meetings which empowers them to express their half baked ideas. Many of them are church goers which means they are in the habit of meeting. This also means they project the problems they have upon demons that are tormenting them and that God is testing them. Until very recently the Tea Party hasn’t been challenged confronted. Now that they have it also entrenches them. The core Tea partiers hold a high self image of themselves with their success in delivering the votes that upset the balance of power. She needs to be confronted by law firms, mortgage companies, and other court officers that employ her services to shut up or she will lose business. She needs to be told directly that she on the wrong team and fight for the wrong cause, She needs to be told that Satan is deceiving her and that she needs to pray and ask for forgiveness. In most polite terms possible.

    • October 21, 2011 9:22 am

      You forgot to mention she is a self published author who seems to belief that she gets paid by the word, and not by the content.

    • October 21, 2011 9:26 am

      Robert wrote “She needs to be confronted by law firms, mortgage companies, and other court officers that employ her services to shut up or she will lose business.” You know what Robert, that is a not only true, but the seed for a great idea. Alerting these interests to Ms. Brookstone’s anti-American and dangerous manifesto is something any reasonable American can do. Perhaps that is the action we should all take in response. Find the names and emails of Denver Colorado law firms, courts, and other businesses using her services, and send them links to her manifesto to harm Americans and our economy!

    • October 21, 2011 12:50 pm

      Amen Robert!

  21. October 20, 2011 4:38 pm

    She’s only a “Ning” Administrator of The “Ning” group tea Party Nation. The tea Party is nothing but a group of people who are upset with our nation…just like everyone else !!

    • October 20, 2011 4:57 pm

      So, is the Tea Party Nation disavowing and repudiating Ms. Brookstone’s Anti-American manifesto or not? Being ‘upset’ does not give license to treason Jim.

      • October 21, 2011 8:01 am

        Its now treason for a small business owner to state that they will not be hiring anyone because of the burdensome regulations placed upon them to do so?

      • October 21, 2011 9:20 am

        Umm, no. It is treasonous for a citizen of the United States to advocate actions intended to harm fellow citizens. If the small business owner listens to that call, then they are just idiots. Why do so many people have problems with reading comprehension?

      • October 21, 2011 10:57 am

        Actually, no. Treason is defined extremely narrowly in the US constitution, for many good reasons. Treason requires actively making war against the US or aiding declared enemies of the US.

        That is the one thing I disagree with about this post – the misuse of the word treason. As wrong as I think this so-called corporatist tea party agenda is, it isn’t treason.

        This appears to be intended as a response to the original tea party post that claimed that Obama, the Democrats, Progressives and so on are committing treason for their “socialist” agenda. Again, not treason (and I must note the irony of someone who claims strict adherence to the Constitution who can’t even get the definition of the one crime that is explicitly spelled out in the constitution right) But even as a satirical response, two wrongs don’t make a right.

        Bottom line, I don’t care where it comes from we shouldn’t misuse the word treason to score shock value points.

      • October 21, 2011 10:59 am

        Good points, but there is a petition for charging her with that. If there is a good constitutional lawyer out there, perhaps they can define the approriate charge, because she has committed both a moral and in my opnion, legal offense by advocation harm against American citizens.

      • October 21, 2011 11:04 am

        Also, the actual passage is as follows: “Resolved that: By their agenda and actions, those in the Tea Party, those that are members of Ms. Brookstone’s Tea Party Nation, those that are members of the Republican Party, and those that represent the hidden wealthy corporate interests guiding these efforts, who claim they are dedicated to protecting and defending our Constitution and the American way of life, have committed treason against the United States.” This sepaks to a much broader conspiracy that goes beyond just a call to stop job creation, which will harm American citizens, but to the broader agenda that supports actions and policies that are akin to making war against Americans because there are actual casualties as a direct result (I know, I lost a daughter-in-law and unborn grandshild due directly to lack of access to healthcare due to the healthcare reform being stonewalled by Republicans and their foot soldiers in the Tea Party, hence by my at times, extreme antipathy towards the movement).

        That’s still quite a stretch to refer to it as treason. I still think it is morally wrong, but not treason. However an anti-government viewpoint could very easily result in treason for example if it became an attempt to actually overthrow the government. Regardless, I do think that word should be used with extreme caution.

    I’m DEFINITELY not trying to defend the Tea Party, but how can you say that Melissa Brookstone is a leader in the Tea Party? She’s a hypocrite and a libertarian nutjob, but she’s a blogger on a site where anyone can sign up to have a blog who self-published a book that is, by her own admission, a failure.

    http://politics.gather.com/viewArticle.action?articleId=281474980617884 <–this is the only article I've seen that (deservedly) calls out Melissa Brookstone while still taking the time to understand WHO SHE IS–a fringe lunatic.

    • October 20, 2011 11:36 am

      Well, it’s been out there a couple of days; numerous outlets have identified her as either a leader OR an activist in the Tea Party Nation; the Tea Party Nation has neither denied or corrected those accounts; if that means that she is in fact a leader OR an activist in the Tea Party Nation that ipso facto DOES make her part of the larger Tea Party (the article does not assign her being a TEA PARTY leader, but a TEA PARTY NATION leader/activist). Again, I have heard no calls from the Tea Party Nation OR the Tea Party to disavow, disown,, refute, or distance themselves from her manifesto that calls for actions to harm the United States and its citizens, thus by their silence they are party to it.
