New Attempt at Civil Discourse From the Left: 'F*ck Tea'

August 12th, 2010 4:07 PM

A "progressive" political activism campaign has launched a new project apparently aimed at engaging opponents in civil discourse about important issues of the day.

Their motto: "F*ck Tea."

Setting its sights on the Tea Party movement, the Agenda Project has launched an online store to sell shirts and mugs with the slogan and inform visitors of some statistics about the Tea Parties - none of which are sourced.

On its own website, the Agenda Project claims its goal is "to build a powerful, intelligent, well-connected political movement capable of identifying and advancing rational, effective ideas in the public debate and in so doing ensure our country's enduring success."

"Our goal is to return normal Americans to the center of the policy debate by cultivating an understanding of public policy, facilitating common action, and connecting the best ideas and the strongest leaders with engaged citizens, elected officials, the media, political insiders, and experts through a variety of in-person and on-line platforms," the group says.

Apparently that didn't fit on a t-shirt.

Politico reports that the Agenda Project was founded by Erica Payne, who also helped establish the Democracy Alliance and the Center for American Progress, a left-wing think tank.
