Is the tax tea party over or just the beginning?
Anonymous
5 years ago

I am amazed at the turn out for the Tax Tea Parties today! Not just Conservatives, but everyone including Liberals. Normal people. (Not a loon in sight).

I have a feeling that this is not just going to be a one time event. I think that something is brewing in America and to me it is heartening.

Does anyone else think that there is going to me more "events" from the people sending messages to Washington?

If everyone brings a friend...and they bring a friend...and so on and so forth...

The left is quaking in its boots because they are realizing that the American people will not go quietly into that shower room with the stone soap.

Last night, I heard of the possibility of "A Million Patriot March" on DC. 

That would be amazing...

I think the trend will continue because a threshold of "piss-offed-ness" (my term) has been reached. The media coverage seemed real strange to me. CNN went from basically little pre-coverage, to insulting coverage during the event itself. Corespondent Roesgen after interviewing some guy with his two year old daugheter concluded: "Anti-government, anti-CNN since this is highly promoted by the right-wing conservative network Fox and since I can't really hear much more and I think this is not really family viewing. Toss it back to you Kyra," Not family viewing?! You've got to be kidding!

This morning, I watched Gibbs, the White House press secretary call the events "amusing." I think Obama's people are doing him a disservice by keeping him in this bubble where he's not aware that there is desent. After all, 47% of Americans didn't vote for him.

From what I see this is not just right-wing stuff. It seems more Libertarian than Republican. Even Glenn Beck at the Alamo Tea Party said: "The Democrats suck. However, no more than the Republicans suck!" Since the number of people who consider themselves independents has risen to 24%, I'm not surprised Beck has such high ratings. The mainstream media wants to portray these as anti-Obama events. The coverage of the one in Denver seemed to be that way after the fact, but listening to talk show host Peter Boyles live on KHOW radio (not a mainstream show), it didn't seem like the anti-Obama theme was driving the event.

I think it's great that this can still happen in America. These were relatively disorganized events. These weren't people being bused in by ACORN having a premade set of signs, but seemed to be very grass-roots oriented group.

Just the begining, just to get DOHbamas attention

Yup.  As right as usual.

Meanwhile, the Ides of April should be repeated every month. Throw in some entertainment as well.  We have a little place here in south jersey where they burned the tea in 1774.

Janeane Garofalo (Hollywood Idiot)

"Let's be very honest about what this is about. This is not about bashing Democrats. It's not about taxes. They have no idea what the Boston Tea party was about. They don't know their history at all. It's about hating a black man in the White House...This is racism straight up and is nothing but a bunch of teabagging rednecks. There is no way around that."

- Comment regarding the American citizens who participated in the tax-day tea-parties.

**I thought if we elected Barack Obama the Left was going to stop whining about racism? Nah...Now they have a front man to use as their race-baiting poster boy.

The tea-parties weren't about race, and they weren't exclusively about taxes (though I wouldn't expect Liberals to understand this)...The tea-parties were about dissatisfaction with the government; dissatisfaction with Democrats and Republicans.

The federal government is in the process of creating a nanny-state and many Americans have long-ago stopped needing a mommy. These Americans are sickened by the government and will be party to many more tea-parties and protests until the government gets under control: These people are Conservatives. Call them "rednecks" if you will, but they are adults...Unfortunately, we have another large portion of citizens who want nothing more than to be coddled by the government: These people are Liberals. They call me a "redneck," and I call them socialist children; children who refuse to grow up and take care of themselves who need the government to act as their mommy.

The children have control for now. Hopefully the adults can soon regain control of the insane 'ass'ylum (misspelling intentional).**

I've been waiting for the racist card to be played...and here it is.  They've tried every other excuse imaginable to help cover up BHO's ineptness, and now this.  Pathetic.  One way or the other, the Obamabots are determined to keep us in line (their line), and now they's stooping to this.  I lose a little more respect for them daily.

Per Sean Hannity:

According to the latest Rasmussen Reports, 51% of Americans have a favorable view of the nationwide tea parties held last week and one in four adults say they know someone who attended one of the protests. {Article - Rasmussen Reports} Senior White House advisor, David Axelrod, calls these protests “unhealthy” and bewildering. {Video - CBS Face The Nation}

Here in Atlanta we had a very large gathering.   It was very encouraging to see so many people.  Hope the momentum continues to grow.
