Wheeler said Levin learned the results of the district’s investigation and resigned. She would not comment on those investigative results.Public dissent and a free exchange of ideas is one thing, but pretending to be your opposition so that you can speak falsely in their name is about as un-American as you can get...and trying to get people's social security numbers to cause "mayhem"? He should really go to jail for that.
Conestoga Middle School media lab teacher Jason Levin became national news back in April when he announced his intention to bring down the Tea Party on his “Crash the Tea Party” website and in media interviews.
The now-ex Conestoga Middle School media lab teacher said in April that he would seek to embarrass Tea Partiers by attending their rallies dressed as Adolf Hitler, carrying signs bearing racist, sexist and anti-gay epithets and acting as offensively as possible -- anything short of throwing punches.
In a post on his now defunct website, Levin once called on his supporters to collect the Social Security numbers—among other personal identifying information—about as many Tea Party supporters as possible at rallies taking place across the country on Tax Day.
"Some other thoughts are to ask people at the rally to sign a petition renouncing socialism. See just how much info you can get from these folks (name address, DOB, Social Security #). The more data we can mine from the Tea Partiers, the more mayhem we can cause with it!!!!" he wrote.
In an April interview with Talking Points Memo, Levin said of his plans, "Our goal is that whenever a Tea Partier says 'Barack Obama was not born in America,' we're going be right there next to them saying, 'Yeah, in fact he wasn't born on Earth! He's an alien!'"
Complaints from around the nation flooded the school district’s office and Levin was suspended in April as the school district investigated whether he had used school time or resources to engage in political activism. The state’s licensing board also launched its own investigation.
In any event, at least this loon is away from America's kids.
He's not alone though. In Michigan, a fake Tea Party movement has been created at great expense and it's running candidates in twenty-three districts where the race between the Republican and Democrat candidates is expected to be very close. It's being run by a guy named Mark Steffek, a fellow unknown to any Michigan Tea Party activists or organizers. Steffek of course won't grant interviews or talk about the source of funds used to hire the paid circulators for the petition drive to put his slate of candidates on the ballot (60,000 signatures at a dollar apiece, or $60,000), but it's come out that Steffek is a retired UAW member who has donated money to Democrat Party candidates in the past--notably extreme liberal David Bonior--and his attorney/"election specialist" just happens to be Mike Hodge. Hodge was legal counsel to former Democratic Gov. James Blanchard and has worked regularly since then for the state Democratic Party. Also, the outfit that he used to circulate the petitions turns out to be Progressive Campaign, Inc., a George-Soros-financed firm that works almost exclusively on behalf of leftist organizations and the Democrat Party.
Obviously, putting a third candidate in to siphon votes away from the more conservative Republican is going to benefit the Democrats hugely, which is probably why all the fingers are pointing back to them. They know that a majority of voters now want something other than what they're offering so instead of changing and giving the people what the people want, they're offering fake candidates who promise what the people want but who are really only in the race to divide the vote of those who oppose the Democrats.
That is totally wrong and 100% un-American and every single individual linked to this and similar sham campaigns needs to be publicly horse-whipped, then tarred and feathered, stripped of their US citizenship, and deported to sub-Saharan Africa. Again, you have the right to stand up and advocate openly for what you want in this country, but when you eschew that and decide to lie and deceive instead, there should be a cost.
As it stands today, Levin is out of the game, but the fraud in Michigan is still going forward with it's shill candidates on the ballots under the Tea Party name and we won't know the results of that un-Democratic scam until after the November election. If it results in just one district's fair election being sabotaged, may God have mercy on the souls of every Democrat involved.
(Wait--do Democrats even have souls?)
