<p>Throughout the day on Friday, CNN touted video of angry protesters at congressional Republican town halls in Tennessee and Utah to prove that it might be the emergence of a possible <strong>&ldquo;tea party of the left.&rdquo;</strong> In the process, it showed a stunning dose of sudden respect after how they and their media cohorts treated the tea party when it arrived on scene in 2009 and 2010.</p>

<p>In one segment, however, American Conservative Union (ACU) chairman Matt Schlapp was there to point out that the town halls were in strongly Republican districts so the left&rsquo;s <strong>&ldquo;orchestrated campaign[s]&rdquo;</strong> were no more than them <strong>&ldquo;doing a very good job of making their political points.&rdquo;</strong></p>
