Tea Party leaders invite Democrat, ban Republican
The two nitwits who have hijacked the Skylands Tea Party -- Douglas Amedeo and William Jefferson Hayden -- have followed up their lovefest with liberal Democrat Senate candidate Jennifer Hamilton by banning conservative Republican Assemblyman Parker Space. In last year's presidential election, Parker Space and wife Jill Space ran Donald Trump's effort in Sussex County and Jill Space was elected as a Trump delegate to the Republican National Convention where she helped pass the most conservative Republican platform in over two decades.
Nevertheless, the two were removed from the Tea Party group's membership list and blocked from the group's Facebook page. This follows up on the group's February meeting, when Skylands Vice President William Jefferson Hayden lured the Space family to a meeting in which they were publicly attacked in what was clearly an attempt by Hayden to humiliate them. Of course, Hayden's thuggery failed.
Last week, Hayden and Skylands President Douglas Amedeo invited liberal Democrat Jennifer Hamilton to promote her leftist agenda before the group. As reported by the New Jersey Herald, most Tea Party members were disgusted by the leftist agenda served up by the Democrat lawyer. Others, like liberal Harvey Roseff, were clearly delighted by her pro-sanctuary cities, pro-abortion, anti-gun, anti-Trump agenda. Roseff hates Trump. That's his opinion. We all get that.
The lengths some people will go in their quest for attention and/or power was demonstrated over the weekend, when Amedeo and Hayden trashed the Pro-Life movement just to bash Steve Oroho and Parker Space.
In a Facebook post, Amedeo wrote:
The legislation Amedeo attacked is called the 20/20 "Babies in the Womb Feel Pain" bill. Senator Oroho introduced the legislation at the request of the Pro-Life movement in New Jersey.
The goal of the 20/20 Project is to pass legislation to address the scientific fact that unborn babies are pain-sensitive at 20 weeks. Every other country on earth recognizes this fact except North Korea, China, Vietnam, Singapore, Canada, and the Netherlands. Senator Steve Oroho is the prime sponsor of legislation in the State Senate, while Assemblyman Parker Space and Assemblywoman Gail Phoebus have co-sponsored companion legislation in the State Assembly. Similar legislation has been passed in 14 states and 2017 has been designated as the year of the big push to bring our laws into line with the rest of the civilized world.
The 20/20 Project is an ecumenical movement embracing members representing many religious denominations. It is actively supported by numerous Christian and Jewish congregations and its work has been taken up by several organizations including the Respect Life Office of the Archdiocese of Metuchen, the Respect Life Office of the Archdiocese of Newark, Project LEARN, the New Jersey Family Policy Council, New Jersey Right to Life, the Center for Garden State Families, Corazon Puro, LifeNet, the League of American Families, among others.
Despite the best efforts of pro-abortion, social liberals like New York City lawyer Amedeo to label this legislation "Dead-on-Arrival", there are thousands of volunteers working across New Jersey to pass the 20/20 "Babies in the Womb Feel Pain" bill. There are many thousands more praying for its passage.
Last October, there was a major planning conference in Scotch Plains to work out grassroots lobbying and prayer events in support of the 20/20 bill. Hundreds of activists attended, including many from Sussex County. At this 20/20 Vision Conference (Equal Rights for Babies in the Womb) the Pro-Life movement announced that passage of the 20/20 bill was its number one legislative priority.
The "advertising" Amedeo referenced in his attack on Oroho was a call to prayer, this being Lent. Secularists like Amedeo and Hayden get angry when they see elected officials asking people to pray -- in this case for infants in the womb.
To further add to his "sin" (in the minds of Amedeo and Hayden), Senator Oroho asked people to attend a meeting to pass the 20/20 bill in Sussex County.
On Thursday, April 20th, at 7:30pm, the 20/20 Project will hold a presentation and prayer meeting at Our Lady of the Lake Parish Center, 294 Sparta Avenue, in Sparta. The presentation will be delivered by Christine Flaherty, the Executive Director of LIFENET.
Amedeo actually trashed the entire Pro-Life movement and the National Right to Life scorecard in his rant on Facebook:
Amedeo, Hayden, Roseff and their followers are not conservatives, they are libertarians and social liberals. They only support scorecards put out by fellow libertarians who support Pro-abortion, Pro-same sex marriage, Pro-legalized narcotics, Pro-legalized prostitution, and Pro-amnesty for illegal aliens. That is who they follow.
The membership of the Skylands Tea Party should demand that their leaders stop kissing the behinds of liberal Democrats like Jennifer Hamilton and rescind their removal and ban of solid conservative Republicans like Assemblyman Parker Space.
