Dana Loesch and 24th State have revealed the ring of corruption that extends from St. Louis bloggers and local St. Louis leftist rag, through SEIU, to Media Matters and Huffington Post.Hennessy's quote is referring to all of the groups and organizations he thinks are involved in a giant "cover-up," regarding the Gladney incident on August 6. If you want a full refresher on the event click here, but I can also provide a short summary: the tea party originally claimed that there was video showing that SEIU "thugs" had beaten up merchandise seller Kenneth Gladney. After it became obvious that there in fact was no video evidence of the "beating" they claimed happened, they then shifted their story. Now they say they have secret evidence that proves that Gladney was beaten. They won't show it to you, but if you don't believe them you're racist.
Because Media Matters is one of those strange organizations that actually requires evidence before they blindly accept tea party stories, and because SEIU has donated money to Media Matters, they are therefore involved in a Massive Conspiracy according to Loesch and Hennessy. And because someone who has written blog posts for the Huffington Post was at a rally for McCowan, they are part of the Massive Conspiracy as well. In fact, the full tea party conspiracy theory about this event involves everyone from President Obama to the local dogcatcher (literally), and is so complicated it could only truly be understood with a Glenn Beck chalkboard session. But never before had I been implicated in it! Since I'm the only "St. Louis blogger" who's even been writing about this issue, Bill Hennessy now clearly thinks that I am part of this massive conspiracy. He must have read my tweet from two days ago:
Sadly, being the weak-kneed leftist that the tea party all suspected, naturally I also broke down and ratted out my fellow conspirators:
What's especially awesome is that even after I mocked the tea party's conspiracy theories, Hennessy was still courageous enough to further expand the people implicated in them. I think that the number of people involved in this secret coverup now equals at least 51% of the population. Anyway, great to finally get my acknowledgment as a cog in the massive conspiracy.
