King Street Patriots reach out to non-Texans, minorities

With legal challenges simmering in Texas, Houston tea party group King Street Patriots is expanding its activities, geographically and demographically. KSP president Catherine Engelbrecht has taken the group’s True the Vote project on the road; back in Harris County, KSP/TTV is backing efforts to bring minorities into the tea party fold.

Today, Engelbrecht is speaking at a luncheon in Newport Harbor, Calif., hosted by the local Republican women’s group. The cost of the lunch is $30, payable to the GOP group.

KSP/TTV training has taken place in California and Chicago, according to Wisconsin-based conservative news site Media Trackers, promoting an upcoming KSP/TTV event in Oconomowoc, Wis., For the “training for Candidates, Campaign Managers and Activists,” KSP/TTV has joined forces with conservative group American Majority. Costs for that event range from $25-$60.

Washington, D.C.-based American Majority sponsors Media Trackers, according to Politico. American Majority’s Drew Ryun told Politico that he “envisions a state-based network of similar non-profits” to Media Trackers.

In addition to non-Texans, KSP/TTV has been busy reaching out to ethnic minorities, as well. Beltway-based Roll Call recently featured KSP/TTV’s efforts with American Majority spokeswoman Anita MonCrief to launch the “Boots of Liberty Taskforce,” aimed at promoting the tea party within Houston’s minority neighborhoods. Roll Call reports:

They plan to take the project to Maryland next, where MonCrief lives, and to other diverse parts of the country. But starting first in Harris County, the Lone Star state’s most populous, was deliberate. The county has seen an influx of minorities in the past decade, and its population is 38 percent Hispanic and 18 percent black.

MonCrief’s earlier initiative to found a minority tea party has encountered difficulties, including being “kicked out of its meeting space,” according to Roll Call.

Read the Texas Independent for previous reporting on the Crispus Attucks Tea Party, which launched in mid-January.

On April 16, MonCrief announced on the Crispus Attucks’ Facebook page that she was leaving the group in the hands of co-founder Earl Johnson, saying, “As of today, I will no longer be working with the Crispus Attucks Tea Party. Dr. Johnson has everything under control and I will begin to focus on a national campaign to take back America.”

Last week, KSP/TTV’s headquarters in Houston became the site of a pro-immigration rights demonstration, where protestors rallied against Gov. Rick Perry’s “hateful” policy proposals before the state Legislature, including an emergency measure against so-called “sanctuary cities.” Perry was inside keynoting the grand opening event for KSP/TTV’s new location.
