A few days ago, a couple of discussions went up in this section about a certain group called the "coffee party". There was some controversy as to whether or not it was just a group of Obama supporters as an answer to the Tea party. Well after a lot of research, I have the answer. No......and yes. The ORIGINAL coffee party was actually started a number of months ago after the tea party was hijacked and is a solid group of libertarian minded people. However, an Obama supporter and documentary maker decided to grab the name and create her own group. WOW what a contrast....the two couldn't be more different. Here is the REAL coffee party... http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-COFFEE-Party/303817978987?v=info And here is the hijacked coffee party by an Obama shill.... http://www.facebook.com/coffeeparty

When I saw you became a fan I thought you had gone over the edge. LOL Glad to know that is not the case. Apparently, they don't take to criticism at the other coffee place. They've blocked any discussion until they can figure out a way to moderate comments. Sounds about right for them.

Just read what you wrote on the "Instant Coffee Page" (Acts real, but tastes funny) I wonder if anyone will heed your warning?

lol, the one I wrote on the main hijacked page was pretty quickly removed and I can no longer post there. they haven't caught it on the new hampshire page yet and I wrote a request on the wall of the REAL page for others to go to the fake and post a warning.

They may have stopped commenting for now, but it's clear from the comments that are still there that many people mistrust this movement and disagree with their motives.

Thanks for posting this discussion as I did not realize there were two of the coffee parties. I now see the one I looked at yesterday from a discussion (sorry annie!) was not the real one. Thanks again!

No need to be sorry, Hon, I didn't know there was another one either. The main reason the "coffee party" name caught my attention to begin with is that I had said I'd like to start a "Coffee Klatch" in an earlier discussion about a "Cocktail Party". Annie

Actually Annie the one you mentioned does seen to have a Coffee Klatch aura to it and I do not think that is a bad method of getting the word out.

Well how about that, they cannot even be original. What the Energy Drink party was not good enough for these two losers? Think about the creative slogans they could have come up with if they had used the energy drink tag, we are amped for Obamacare, our stimulus plan is as strong as a red bull, and you only need five hours to read a thousand page bill. That is all I got.

I guess I'm going to have to remain an "outsider" when it comes to these so-called "grassroots movements" although I don't think it's so awful for someone who happened to be or have been an Obama supporter to want to for her own group. She shouldn't have stolen the name, though. As far as the original coffee party goes, I see they sort of describe themselves as conservatives ("...as any REAL conservative knows...") so they're not for me either. Sorry, X, I know you always tell me I'm wrong to think in terms of labels but I didn't start using them. No matter what words are used or not used I've got too many philosophical differences with "the right"...lol! Annie

What exactly is a REAL conservative? I mean really. I hear all kind of definations for it. what is a "real" liberal? I hear a lot of definations on that one too.

Well this is going to cause a lot of confusing. Two "coffee parties" with two different ideas and goals. Which means either one will really take off or people will get so confused neither will take off. Think she did it on purpose to stop the orginial "coffee" people from catching on? With how big the "tea" party movement got...the last thing they want is TWO big activist groups that don't agree with them.

No question in my mind it was an attempt at controlled oposition. However what it acomplished is just as bad....a very large active group pushing Obama's and the democratic party's itinerary...not very well hidden about it either.

Kudos for finding the real Coffee Party. I knew only of the one started by Annabel Park, the Obama operative. It doesn't surprise me that she hijacked that name to start up her pro-Obama group. It seems to me, though, that those in the real Coffee Party could do more by trying to join forces with the Tea Party and keep them from veering off the original path that they set out upon. The Tea Party is well-known and now the Coffee Party name is tainted by this new group. Infusing these ideas back into the movement would do more for the Tea Party and garner more support. Two Coffee Party groups is going to cause confusion and the new one is getting all the media attention.

"Two Coffee Party groups is going to cause confusion and the new one is getting all the media attention. " Exactly, it worked beautifully. I tried posting a warning on the main page of the hijacker, lol...it didn't stay up too long and I can no longer post there.

Thanks for the research/information. I had never heard of the Coffee Party, until that discussion the other day. I decided I was more aligned to the Tea Party...
