If Fox"News" Isn't Promoting The Tea-Parties....

....then why are they replaying ( yes, REPLAYING ) Glenn Beck's Tea-Bagging festivities right now?

Yes, they are replaying his right-wing stage show - complete with Ted "I'm so fucking hardcore Republican that I will suck Sean Hannity's balls for more fame" Nugent - and they are claiming that it's not about party but lambasting the "far-right extremist" memo from the DHS. They are talking about how it is non-partisan while there are flags in the background that are directly related to Barack Obama and the Democratic party.

Yeah, no promotion what-so-ever.

And the fact that it was broadcast from The Alamo is so hilarious:

The Battle of the Alamo (February 23 – March 6, 1836) is the most famous battle of the Texas Revolution. After a revolutionary army of Texian settlers and adventurers from the United States drove all Mexican troops out of Mexican Texas, Mexican President Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna led an invasion to regain control of the area. Mexican forces arrived in San Antonio de Bexar on February 23 and initiated a siege of the Texian forces garrisoned at the Alamo Mission.

In the early morning hours of March 6 the Mexican army launched an assault on the Alamo. The outnumbered Texians repulsed two attacks, but were unable to fend off a third. As Mexican soldiers scaled the walls, most of the Texian soldiers retreated into the long barracks or the chapel. Several small groups who were unable to reach these points attempted to escape and were killed outside the walls by the waiting Mexican cavalry. The Mexican soldiers fought room-to-room and soon had control over the Alamo. Between five and seven Texians may have surrendered; if so, they were quickly executed on Santa Anna's orders. Most eyewitness accounts reported between 182 and 257 Texian dead, while most Alamo historians agree that 400–600 Mexicans were killed or wounded. Of the Texians who fought during the battle, only two survived: Joe, spared because he was a slave, and Brigido Guerrero, a Mexican Army deserter who convinced Mexican soldiers he had been imprisoned. Women and children, primarily family members of the Texian soldiers, were questioned by Santa Anna and then released.

Like Beck had told his audience. He was bringing his show from the only place in America where it makes sense.
