Dear Friends: A HOT news note, which I am forced to make as I am preparing to head to Sacramento tomorrow (a hat-tip to fellow SLOB W.C. Varones for this find). It seems the lamestream media is disseminating a story via the internet that tries to attach the fiscally focused/limited-government-desiring Tea Party Movement to an individual who tore pages from the Koran at the White House today.
Tea Party leader from Indiana Andrew Beacham reads a page of the Koran before ripping it out and crumpling it in front of the White House in Washington
And this gem of hard-hitting journalism from the AFP/Goggle News:
Beacham, who describes himself as a leader of the rightwing conservative Tea Party from Indiana, added: “The Twin Towers were taken down because of the Koran and other religious teachings.”
A real Tea Party Leader, Dawn Wildman (a national coordinator for the Tea Party Patriots and the President of the Southern California Tax Revolt Coalition) had this statement: “As a Tea Party Patriots coordinator, I have talked often with the organizers in Indiana. This man is not one of the people I recognize, nor am I aware of his participation in any official Tea Party events before. He sounds like a fringe type who is using the hard-won relevance of the Tea Parties to give him self credibility. If the media really does its job, it will discover he has none — Tea Party Patriots would never condone an act of desecration for any reason.”
Dawn appears to be spot on. Another SLOB, Left Coast Rebel, was able to supply a wealth of information on Mr. Beacham.
Our friends at Teabagger Watch (nee Teabaggers Are Coming) have a great new piece about Andrew Beacham, the young teabagger acolyte of rabid anti-choice zealot Randall Terry. Beacham first came to our attention when he has been spotted him at various events sporting distinctly changed looks. In addition to getting arrested wherever Obama is speaking and making a fool of himself protesting Obama’s “do well in school” speech, Beacham’s hobbies also include infiltrating Planned Parenthood meetings and having sooper dooper top seekrit meetings with notable airhead Alan Keyes.

He gets around. He’s a professional anti-abortion protester. He’s been removed from a lot of venues from Obama’s Notre Dame speech to Sotomayor’s hearings. More recently he was outside of the high school in Arlington where Obama spoke to kids.
* Mr. Beacham is a member of Insurrecta Nex
1.) An act or instance of revolting against death; usually violent death , murder
2.) A group of the ‘tireless minority, keen to set brushfires in the minds of men’
3.) DVD series that will change the course of human history forever, i.e. crushing childkilling underfoot, taking back civilization and enthroning Christ the King in every nation
According to W.C. Varones, the Indiana Tea Party ran Beacham out of town, citing a Washington Independent story.
Andrew Beacham, a young, bearded activist who has been ejected from four of President Obama’s speeches–including his University of Notre Dame commencement speech and a health care event in Maryland–was just as adamant. He came into Terry’s fold after a disappointing stint as a Republican activist and a Tea Party organizer in Indiana. Suiting up and heckling the president of the United States, he said, made him aware of how “in history, there are always people who are willing to step up and be the tip of the spear.” Shouting down the president of the United States is more effective than nearly any form of public protest, said Beacham, especially when the president is hesitant about how to respond.
Tea Party Patriots and the Southern California Tax Revolt Coalition are focused on fiscally responsible governance, limited government, and free markets. We disavow the actions of Mr. Beacham and assert he is no true participant in the Tea Party movement.
