YouTube link. The video shows several hundred(!) tea partiers coming down a sidewalk and then forming up on the edge of a parking lot.
GraniteGrok is also live blogging the protest with comments and pictures at this link.
One breaking excerpt:
It seems that one of the Free Staters was accosted by either an SEIU or AFSCME union thug. The story, corroborated by several sources, is that the Free Stater said something that the Union thug did not like and hauled off and spit into his video camera
and then kicked him in the groin.
The camera was running so hopefully it will surface soon. I have asked that if anyone knows the Free Stater to see if he would come over and talk with us.
Well...the “show” has begun.
Can’t tell me this audience isn’t STACKED to THE HILT!!!
Can we turn this into the “LIVE THREAD” for Obama’s whatever-it-is - which has just started....
(Carried live on FNC, for those who care....)
Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychiatry, called it psychological projection, the unconscious denial of one’s own traits by ascribing them to others. A thief, for example, will accuse everyone else of being a thief.
We have seen such delusional projection run amok recently in wild accusations by prominent Democrats against those who refuse to be stampeded into socialized medicine.
On Aug. 10, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and majority leader Rep. Steny Hoyer accused health reform critics of being un-American, as if citizens speaking out at political meetings had never happened before in America.
Days earlier Pelosi accused socialized medicine opponents of carrying signs with Swastikas, the symbol of national socialism (i.e., Naziism) into local town hall meetings with lawmakers. Reporters could find only one such sign rejecting Pelosi’s and President Barack Obama’s policies for being Nazi-like.
Other Democratic lawmakers parroted Pelosi’s surreal propaganda, dishonestly smearing any who dared to question Obamacare as brownshirts, gangsters, or domestic terrorists like Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh.
Real terrorism, however, has come entirely from the left as ordinary citizens found themselves pushed, threatened, or locked out by partisan organizers and radical leftwing activists.
Only hours after the Obama White House told supporters to punch back twice as hard against critics, near St. Louis, African-American conservative Kenneth Gladney was attacked and savagely beaten by four N-word-spouting thugs wearing the purple t-shirts of the ultra-leftist Service Employee International Union (SEIU), one of the nation’s two biggest government employee unions.
If that report is true, it is time the GOP step in and hit somebody big time with legal action. Not just one person either this is a criminal conspiracy from Zero down!
And they call the conservatives terrorists..what a load of BS.
Anyone assaulted by one of these thugs should have them arrested. If the cops refuse make a citizen’s arrest and in most states the cop is obligated to take the defendant into custody.
” Can we turn this into the LIVE THREAD for Obamas whatever-it-is - which has just started.... “
Never mind — I just saw that there already is one...
Sorry for the bother.....
The WH said the crowd in the auditorium WAS NOT pre-selected. That is an obvious lie....
Did you see the folks on stage behind Obama as he gave his talk? You’d think Obama had personally just passed out million dollar checks to each one of them.
I can promise you none of the “resistence” or any Freepers were up there.
It was actually kind of scary...they looked like they wanted to have sex with the man...shades of Chris Matthews.
Nazi brownshirt alert!
I just came over from Yahoo where they’ve posted a story by AP (Holly Ramey) about the hundreds who are lining the streets in anticipation of the Obama motorcade in support and how the anti-govt health care group is about half the size. A picture is worth a thousand words. Proves that the AP is a shill group with zero ties to journalism.
Outside Portsmouth High School, the opposing forces are lined up like screaming armies on either side of the street, about 1,000 troops per side.
Diane Campbell of Kingston, N.H., held a sign with President Barack Obamas face superimposed on a Nazi storm trooper, a sign, she said, that was made by her chronically ill mother.
Her mothers hereditary autoimmune disease is treated with expensive transfusions of gamma globulin, paid for by Medicare. Her sister, Louise, was born with no arms and one leg, and is also covered by Medicare, the government-run health insurance program for the elderly and disabled.
Adolf Hitler was for exterminating the weak, not just the Jews and stuff, Campbell said, and socialism, thats whats going to happen.
William Kostric of Manchester, N.H., carried a sign quoting Thomas Jeffersons aphorism that the tree of liberty needed to be watered by the blood of patriots from time to time. Sometimes you have to move really far to one [political] side to pull people out of their complacency, he said, Not that Im advocating violent revolution at this point.
The two sides swapped taunts and chants, with the pro-Obama forces, especially union members, giving as much as they took.
On C-SPAN now.
Loved that sign. It told exactly what is needed. Emailed it to everyone I know.
"That which you do, accuse others of doing" - Vladimir Lenin
That video brought tears to my eyes. Made me think there’s still hope for our beloved America.
WAKE UP EVERYONE!
My town, Ft. Lauderdale, FL will be having a TP end of this month. It will probably be huge. Thousands showed up for the last two.
Finally Oboma has done something right! He woke up the American people, and they're fighting back against the democrats and their oppressive government. It's about time!
I'm sure this isn't the way he had it planned, though. He's organized our side! (Yay!)
There is a HUGE difference between a grassroots effort and a paid crowd...the grassroots folks have conviction.
