Tea Party Group Creates TV Show

Jun 24, 2011  •  Post A Comment

A group of Tea Partiers has created its own television show, which its backer says is a remedy to the group’s belief that Hollywood portrays "conservatives, traditionalists and people of faith as half-wits," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The show is called "Courage, New Hampshire." Created by a company called Colony Bay, the one-hour project has the feel of a soap opera set in Colonial America, the story says.

Colony Bay is trying to strike deals with conservative networks such as Kelsey Grammer’s Right Network, but with no distribution partner on board yet, the one-hour drama is going straight to DVD, the piece notes.

The show will debut at a movie theater in Monrovia, Calif., on Sunday, with former "Saturday Night Live" cast member Victoria Jackson and radio personality Tony Katz co-hosting.

James Patrick Riley, one of the founders of Colony Bay and a Patrick Henry impersonator, said, "I was surprised to learn how many Tea Partiers there are in Hollywood," the story notes.

  1. Hollywood portrays “conservatives, traditionalists and people of faith as half-wits,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
    I disagree. It’s the vocal Tea Party members that show themselves to be half-wits. “The midnight ride of Paul Revere was to tell the British that the colonists will never give up their guns.”
    Really….

  2. That is HILARIOUS!!!!!

  3. Listen up and watch it, Libs… you might learn something beyond your own tunnel vision progressive politics.
    So goes Greece, so goes California and if we don’t make some REAL “change” in the White House… so goes America! Is that what you want… riots in the streets? It’s coming folks, if you don’t wake up to reality.

  5. The only rioting will come from the jihadist tea baggers who have to scream at the top of their lungs about factually incorrect issues. Try acting civilized and quit preying on the elderly – who you love to put on camera as the fearful grandma or the victimized veteran, at least he LOOKS like he could be a veteran. You are no better than the Taliban and you will be the downfall of this country with your extremist views. Oh and btw – it’s those ignorant liberals who fight for your right to even have a political voice that differs from the mainstream. Speaking as I do for most true Americans!
    (haha, I said we were true Americans first!)
    And the best way to make a change in the White House is if the President would go all hardcore and be as hard headed, arrogant and belligerant in his leadership as Bush – and more so Cheney – were.

  6. Dear, sweet, innocent Angie:
    I assume you must be at least over 18, but not fully educated yet. Right? Regarding “rioting and screaming at the top of their lungs,” check out this video (http://www.theblaze.com/stories/shock-videos-capture-angry-mob-busting-wis-police-barricades/) of your union Lib mobsters and thugs “quietly & peacefully” demonstrating!
    As for the ignorant Libs who fight for ME… I’ve fought in 2 wars to give them the right to protest and demonstrate in the streets. WHAT HAVE “YOU” DONE for this country… held up a union supplied placard for an hour before going back to get your latte at Starbucks? BTW – you speak as if you are a ignorant progressive liberal… NOT an American!
    The CHANGE in the WH will come in 2012 along with the HOPE for a new president that knows what it’s like to have a real job with responsibilities and not just filling a seat in Congress voting “present” so as not to commit himself… politically speaking for his future. This narcissist president forgets that he’s working for us and that we’re not one of his serfs. I realize his goal is to be a Worldly King, but that’s not in the cards!
    Sorry folks!

  7. The sky is falling! The sky is falling! And only the tea party knows how to fix it. Lower taxes and eliminate government! But don’t get rid of any of the government programs that benefit me. And damn anyone else who has a different opinion. They don’t know nothing!
    Hey wait a minute, isn’t that what happened under George Bush’s leadership? As our 43rd president said “Fool me once, shame on you…. fool me twice… we won’t get fooled again.”

  8. According to Poltifacts Sarah Palin’s charge that Obama voted present is false. He never voted “present” in the US Senate. He voted “present” 129 times in over 4000 votes and 8 years in the Illinois Senate.
