If you were looking for any sign of Tea Party protests in the Lamestream Media, forget about it. Unfortunately for Progressives, Socialists, and Marxists, wishing something doesn’t make it necessarily so. To the chagrin of these haters of Americanism, there were too many Tea Party Rallies to list. Here is a reminder to the left – the harder you try to destroy the Tea Party movement, the more steadfast our resolve to cure the American government’s fiscal insanity and snub out rabid Progressivism.

I had the opportunity to attend the Tea Party on Saturday at the Bi-Lo Center on April 17th, 2010. There were lively discussions regarding out of control government, massive spending and and unsustainable debt. The overall sentiment was to throw all the bums out and start over using constitutional principles as the guide.
The Master of Ceremonies was the president of Insensitivity University and professor of non-politically correct studies, our own Bob McClain.
Here are some shots of the crowd.
There were some great signs at the event.
There were two standout speakers at the event.
Former Congressman Tom Tancredo
Tom Tancredo is a true American patriot and it was an honor to hear him speak.
The turnout was somewhat disappointing, with an estimated 3000 attending, but it was quite warm outside, which I think factored into the turnout. I got lots of sun. Last year, the rally was on late Friday afternoon and there were closer to 10,000 attendees.
Here is a comparison of the crowds from 2009 and 2010
Let’s hope the lower turnout this year is an aberration. Some of the other Tea Parties around the nation were much larger than last years’. Those who don’t get off their butts and let their voices be heard should quit whining.
Apathy is enemy of liberty.
You can quote me on that!!
In the wake of the suspension of the leftist teacher who attempted to organize Tea Party crashers, the real patriots in the movement rallied to expose the infiltrators who were planted to smear our movement. We had some signs of our own.
Many patriots are bringing signs like this one…
If you come to our Tea Party, attempting to besmirch our movement, you will be exposed.
It’s telling how the leftist haters have to invent racists because they couldn’t find any actual examples at the rallies. How pathetic is that?
“The liberties of our Country, the freedom of our civil constitution are worth defending at all hazards: And it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of liberty in the minds on men.” – Samuel Adams

If you didn’t happen to catch the straw poll announcement at CPAC, you missed an odd occurrence. When Ron Paul was announced as the winner, we heard a smattering of applause and cheers that were quickly drowned out by loud boos, but when 2nd place Mitt Romney’s name was announced, the crowd cheered loudly. Go figure.. The breakdown of the vote is as follows…
- Paul 31%
- Romney 22%
- Palin 7%
- Pawlenty 6%
- Pence 5%
- Huckabee 4%
- Gingrich 4%
I know that in the past, CPAC was dominated by the GOP establishment types, but why do so many of them hate Ron Paul? I don’t get it. I don’t always agree with Paul on Foreign policy issues, but why do so many neocons label him a kook? The press and blogs, on both the left and the right, including Fox News, are complicit in propagating the notion Paul is somehow out of touch. I don’t think he’s a kook. I think he’s right on about 90% of the issues.
There were more boos in the crowd when Paul’s name was announced -vs- cheers when Romney’s name was announced. Yet, 31% of the voters in the poll supported Paul. There is a definite disconnect here and a clear split that is hard to explain.
I’m not saying that I would support Paul for president but do I prefer him over Romney. Romney is just another progressive GOP establishment puppet and he’s about the last person I’d support for president.
Romney is just another Obama style politician, who will say or do anything to get elected. He’s the same progressive who brought a failed universal heath care “mandate” to Massachusetts. He dramatically raised government “fees” to pay for all the spending, while claiming he didn’t raise taxes (fees -vs- taxes). Doesn’t that sound like the same old BS we see all the time from our politicians?
I don’t see how putting the same establishment politicians back in office is going to change anything. Is Romney kind of person real conservatives and those in Tea Party movement can get behind? I hope not.
