9/12/09 DC Tea Party pictures not seen on national news
Up to 2 Million March
The heated demonstrations were organized by a Conservative group called the Tea Party Patriots
The two photos above show a tiny fraction of the two million ABC estimates attended. I saw signs and heard lots of comments comparing this event to Woodstock. At the time this photo was taken, around 1:00 p.m., Pennsylvania Avenue was still jammed completely, and the mall was packed from the Capitol Building past the Washington Monument. See aerial photos here.
Protesters came from every state in the union. This man came from San Antonio, TX. He said that he was really sorry he hadn't brought his family. He stated that being a black conservative he was afraid to expose his children to what he expected would be a lot of liberal abuse. He was thrilled with the tenor of the event and the fact that no liberals were present to harass him. He spoke about how incredibly intolerant the left is to black individuals who don't bow to the party line.
These Ohioans took a day off their rodeo bullriding schedule. They said they'll be back at it tomorrow.
Mike Pence (R-Indiana) was one of the speakers who addressed the crowd: 'After years of fighting runaway government on this hill, you people look like the cavalry to me..I believe we are on the verge of a great American Awakening.
San Diego radio host Mason Weaver said from the podium: 'I came here because I thought you might want to hear a black man speak without a teleprompter'This government is trying to make a nation of dependent people. Americans have always been independent people 'This is not a Republican thing, it's not a Democrat thing. It's not a black thing or a white thing. It's an American thing' We the people are telling them 'No more! We've had enough!
In the very center of the photo, above the Silence is Consent ' Can You Hear Us Now sign, you can see Pennsylvania Ave., which at this time is totally blocked with protesters who cannot move forward to the Capitol area. Sorry, full up.
There were notable differences though, in the behavior of these attendees. Although the legend of Woodstock is that there was a friendly atmosphere of camaraderie, the truth is that most people were there for the drugs, sex and rock and roll. Today in D.C. there was a true kinship amongst these people based on shared values and intellectual understanding of what America is and how its future is imperiled by big radical government.
No one was having sex in the Reflecting Pool let alone the mud, and I saw no one projectile vomiting on the steps of the Capitol. There were no warnings to avoid the bad acid which would send you on a trip to the hospital. Not just a different era, but a different level of civilized behavior and thought. Oh, and by the way, these people didn't leave tons of garbage behind when they left. Actually they left no trash behind at all.
Obama Lied, Capitalism Died.
Nancy Pelosi has accused patriotic tea-partyers of 'carrying swastikas' implying that they are Nazi sympathizers. This event was wall to wall hammers and sickles and words like 'socialist' 'communist' and 'Marxist' etc. It continues to fascinate me how long the Democrats will tolerate this without ever commenting on it. Either they like it, or there's something to it.
Ever present at Tea Parties are Sons of Liberty re-enactors. The couple on the left is from Tennessee and the young lady on the right is not but she joined in the photo. The clothing for the couple was hand stitched by the lady on the left.
