It looks like the corporate media may soon use Byron Williams to demonize the Tea Party movement. Earlier today the Associated Press  reported that the man who confronted police and ended up in a pitched gun battle on Interstate 580 in Oakland, California, had it out for the ACLU and Tides Foundation. “Oakland police Officer Jeff Thomason says Byron Williams was upset with the ACLU and Tides Foundation for their left-leaning political views.”
The Tides Foundation is funded in part by George Soros’ Open Society Institute . It is a high level globalist operation that also gets cash from AT&T, ChevronTexaco, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Verizon, and Bill and Melinda Gates . It has partnered with the Ford Foundation and the World Health Organization . The Ford Foundation has a history of collaboration with the CIA . It is said that Soros has donated more than $5 million to the ACLU since 1998 .
On Sunday, it was reported that a Soros-funded group with close links to the Obama administration has called for the FCC to investigate both talk radio and cable television news. “The organization, calling itself Free Press, claims media companies are engaging in “hate speech” because a disproportionate number of radio and cable-news networks are owned by non-minorities,” writes Aaron Klein  for WorldNetDaily.
“Hate has seemingly emerged as a profit-model for many radio programs syndicated throughout the country, because only a few companies own the majority of the radio stations nationally,” the group declares.
A San Francisco Chronicle blogger going by the name Zennie62  writes today that the suspected shooter in Oakland was a Tea Party sympathizer.
“Byron Williams… hated left-wing politicians and had on a bullet-proof vest. In other words, a Tea Party sympathizer,” he writes. “That he was on the Oakland stretch of I-580 may have been no accident, considering Oakland’s a hot bed of left-wing political activity. Byron Williams also reads (sic) like a Tea Party sympathizer, and not exactly the warm and fuzzy kind. More like the kind that wants to harm you if you disagree with him.” He then compares Williams to Joe Stack and Mark Williams of the Republican-dominated Tea Party Express. Zennie62 says Williams is a racist because he disagreed with the NAACP’s resolution calling the Tea Party movement racist.
The “GOP and the Tea Party, and its extremist expressions of hate for liberal politics are in a way responsible for encouraging the actions of i-580 Shooter (now he has a title) Byron Williams, and for Joe Stack too,” writes the San Francisco Chronicle blogger. “The GOP better look at itself and start being part of the solution, because it and Fox News are helping to produce domestic terrorists at an alarming rate. Republicans can’t just ignore the Tea Party Express, it must totally repudiate it, and the actions of its most hateful members.”
Obviously, Mr. Zennie62 has not done his homework. The Tea Party Express is closely aligned with the GOP Borg Collective. “The self-described grassroots activists in Tea Party Patriots and the American Liberty Alliance see the Tea Party Express as a sham organization, using the political heft of the movement to push a bland, partisan Republican agenda,” writes David Weigel  for the Washington Independent.
According to Politico , the Tea Party Express is a creature of the establishment Republican consulting firm Russo Marsh + Rogers.
