Maybe There’s Something to those Tea Party Things

Maybe There’s Something to those Tea Party Things

I spy with my little eye something that begins with Tea. Roughly 100 demonstrators turned out this afternoon in Pasadena for a “May Day! May Day” anti-socialism protest against the Barack Obama administration. Gathering at the City Hall in Pasadena’s majestic civic center, the event was a follow-up to the Pasadena Patriots’ Tea Party held […]

David Harsanyi has an excellent column today on the Tea Parties and the capriciousness of politics. Were I a Republican staffer, I’d make sure my boss got a copy of it, pronto. It was a mere four years ago that the Republican Party governed — and I assure you I employ the word “govern” reluctantly […]

If you’re really curious why hundreds of thousands of ordinary Americans would take to the streets in protest of this President’s policies, I can explain in one picture. When the left and their MSM brethren complain that protesters are hypocritical because they didn’t march against President Bush’s deficits, well, this picture shows you why. Compared […]

Yesterday’s Tax Day Tea Parties were a smashing success. There were no reports of any arrests that I could find. No stores were looted. No police officers were harassed or threatened. In fact, the one instance where authories had to take action — in Washington, DC where an unknown participant threw a box of tea […]

I defy The Stupidest Speaker of the House Ever to name just one of the “wealthiest people in America” she claims funded the Tax Day Tea Parties. I know she can’t, but her dismissive, elitist allegation cannot go unchallenged. I dare her to show me any scrap of proof for her dismissive, elitist allegation. If […]

In my travels around the blogosphere today, I’ve seen some left-wing commenters pooh-poohing what they consider to be a “meager” turnout for today’s Tax Day Tea Parties. So I decided to spitball some numbers. Michelle Malkin reports that there are at least 800 tea parties going on today. This post, which is aggregating reports from […]

Michelle Malkin, quoting Glenn Reynolds who in turn quotes the organizer of the Tax Day Tea Party in Chicago: “This is an opportunity for Americans to speak, and elected officials to listen, not the other way around.” Nevertheless, there are quite a few politicians who think we’ll forget that they voted for some of these […]

The Obama administration has done something I didn’t think it was possible to do. It managed, in a ten-page report, to tattoo the word “extremist” on the foreheads of about half the country. Plenty of folks are writing about the Department of Homeland Security Report made public by Stephen Gordon at The Liberty Papers. And […]

Hmmm…I wonder what the JournoList Meme of the Week is? Let’s take a look around some of the leading left-wing blogs, why don’t we? Here’s the nasty little bigot Jane Hamsher saying that the Tea Party protests are nothing but a Fox News/big corporation operation. And here she is again saying the same thing. Notice […]
