Joseph Farah: Hijacking the tea party

The tea-party movement is only about two years old, but, because of its potency, there have already been many attempts to hijack it.

“From politicians trying to resurrect their careers to media activists trying to establish careers, there is a temptation to think of the tea-party movement as cattle or sheep that can be herded in any direction with skillful manipulation.

I don’t believe that’s true.

I hope it’s not true.

The tea-party movement is so important to the future of the country precisely because it is an amorphous, grass-roots uprising – called not by leadership but by national crisis and necessity.

…I’m honored that the Tea Party Nation chose me to be a keynote speaker at its first national convention in Nashville earlier this year. And I am honored that it chose me to be a keynote speaker at its second national convention in Las Vegas next month.

I hope you will join us there as we prepare for the most important midterm election in our nation’s history – a pivotal vote that will determine whether the United States of America will continue to be the shining city on a hill, a beacon of freedom and justice throughout the world.

Pray that God smiles on America this year.

Pray that God smiles on the tea-party movement and uses it mightily.

Pray that God confuses the minds of all those who would use this movement for their own self-aggrandizement.

Pray that the tea-party movement does not get hijacked by those who would turn it into a strictly materialistic endeavor devoid of God’s real concerns for the nation.

Pray for unity and success for the tea-party movement.”
