  • Why the Silent Majority Is Turning Angry

    American ^ | July 26, 2021 | Jack Gleason
    Americans are an easygoing lot. We let bygones be bygones. If crazy Uncle Bob wants to rattle on at Thanksgiving dinner about global warming in the middle of the coldest winter in twenty years, we politely ask for more cranberry sauce. We have been known as "the silent majority." We vote pretty often, but we don't donate to politicians or volunteer on campaigns. And we certainly don't protest at City Hall. But this good nature is predicated on our government playing by the rules and staying out of our lives. (Watch the fun when someone from the government knocks on...

    To hell with a million man march. We need a TEN MILLION man march!! Fill the mall and every street in DC!! Time to raise the pucker factor in DC until no one in congress can even raise up from his chair. When the people fear their government there is tyranny.

It's time to unite and turnout freedom loving Americans of every political stripe to run the statist bums out and restore...

    *snip* A veterans groups called The Veteran Defenders of America has now answered that question. In a documented Call-to-Action titled a – A Declaration to Restore the Constitutional Republic – former Military and Law Enforcement Officers have come together to demand that all oath-takers immediately execute their oaths in preservation of the Constitutional Republic. At present, every member of the Military, Law Enforcement, Justice, Congress and federal employment is in direct violation of their oaths. As they stand idly by allowing an anti-American transformation of our constitutional form of government, they do so in direct violation of the oaths they...
  • How Will You Celebrate This 9/12? (No march on DC in september)

    Freedom Works ^ | August 7th | Matt Kibbe
    I'm often asked why we're not organizing another Taxpayer March on Washington this September 12th. Why, after more than a million Americans protested on 9/12/2009 and 9/12/2010, aren't we headed back to Washington? The reason is simple: we're not just a protest movement anymore. This movement has had stages. We began as a protest movement against big government in 2009, morphed into America's most powerful get-out-the-vote machine in 2010, and pushed for transformative legislative change to rein in government in 2011.
  • Richard Cohen: The Tea Party, united only by anger and the Internet (Excuses being made, already)

    The Washington Post ^ | October 26, 2010 | Richard Cohen
    The Tea Party has no leader. It has no address, no phone and no Washington headquarters. It is everywhere and nowhere. For Barack Obama, the Tea Party is the quintessential asymmetrical enemy, much like the Taliban in Afghanistan. The president stands a chance of losing on both fronts. The Post set up a posse and went in search of the Tea Party. Of the 2,300 local groups claimed by one Tea Party organization, The Post could verify or reach only 647. As for the rest, "it is unclear whether they are just hard to reach or don't exist," The Post...

    The Hillsboro Times-Gazette ^ | October 11, 2010 | Professor Marvin Folkertsma
    The Tea Party Movement, otherwise known as the Great Peasant Revolt of 2010, has been greeted by the country's ruling class with all the sympathy that Voltaire expressed toward the Catholic Church: "Kill the infamous thing!" Although the American Revolution provides the inspiration for today's Tea Party Americans (TPAs), their opponents in government, academia, and the media have exhausted their warehouses of invective by reacting to this new challenge to old privileges the way the French Aristocracy regarded the Third Estate. Which means, in the aristocracy's view, that there must a Robespierre or Marat lurking within that rabble, waiting with...

    I unfortunately did not get very many pictures this day, most of what went on was memorial services and rallies/speeches and so on. But I have six photos from right before the march, the march itself, and one from over at the washington monument grounds. A lot of things I just didn't bother with, such as captain america since I already have a few pictures of him in his costume from the tax day protest. He led the march that day.(as he did the next day, 9/12 IIRC) If you wish to see my pics from tax day 2010, look...
  • Ed Schultz, you're no Glenn Beck: Why "One America" rally just didn't measure up

    Salon's War Room ^ | October 3, 2010 | Steve Kornacki, News Editor
    The hope of the organizers of Saturday's "One America" rally in Washington was that a big turnout -- something on par with the crowd Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin attracted at the end of August -- would alter the media's midterm campaign narrative, which to date has emphasized the energy of the Republican base and the likelihood of sizable GOP gains in November. And, to the organizers' credit, the turnout, to the extent it could really be measured, seemed impressive enough. But while we might want to take this as proof that the "enthusiasm gap" is vanishing and that the...

    The Yale Daily News ^ | September 15, 2010 | John Scrudato
    No doubt you’ve heard the stories. There’s a political storm is brewing, and it’s based on anger. They’ve taken over our primaries; they’ve overthrown the establishment; and they’re against civil rights. Yes, I write about nothing other than the Tea Party. The disdain felt for it is easy to spot. Inevitably, when the topic comes up among my friends, there are references to “those people.” It is cursed for the threat its poses to the legislative agenda and it’s refusal to be tamed. Even esteemed Yale professors, who shall go unnamed, have taken the time in class to attack the...

    The London Daily Mirror ^ | September 11, 2010 | Tom Parry and Martin Fricker
    When Barack Obama took the presidential oath, the world hoped it would heal the wounds of America's divided past. But today, less than two years later, the far-right is gaining ground across the US. This week's Koran-burning stand-off is just the symptom of a wider disease gnawing away at the world's greatest democracy. The alarming trend is best shown by the soaring popularity of the Tea Party movement. Named after the Boston Tea Party of 1773 when Americans dumped their British rulers' tea in the sea, it has become a rallying point for the right. It provocatively chose the anniversary...

    The Glenn Beck Lincoln Memorial event brings to mind Brazilian Ze da Silva’s cartoon which on one side has Martin Luther King Jr. and on the other side President Barack Obama. On the left is the courageous, prophetic king who exalts, “I have a dream!” On the right is another courageous man, President Obama, bent low over his desk, muttering, “I have a nightmare.” Both men represent a limitless, indescribable courage, filled with dreams for the American people. King has just appealed for social, economic and racial justice. Obama has dreamed of a country free of racial, religious and sexuality...

    Anyone who has seen the images from the turnout for Glenn Beck's Restoring Honor Rally can't deny the numbers were significant, no matter what the final totals were. Now defining significant might be like defining the definition of is, but that was a few presidencies ago. This rally appears to represent a growing movement that may very well impact the country politically. That is what is creating a reaction. Most people don't have the urge to go to Washington, DC for any rally. It appears as though the comments about the numbers at the rally indicate a fear that there...

    The Richmond Times-Dispatch ^ | September 5, 2010 | Robin Beres
    Richmond, Va. -- While I don't count myself a fan -- his tears and emoting are a bit much -- Glenn Beck isn't the hate-mongering racist that Howard Dean, Leonard Pitts, and others claim he is. And many good, hardworking Americans put a lot of stock in Beck -- average Americans who are concerned about the moral and fiscal direction this country has taken. So, it was out of curiosity that I went to Washington with my brother, Patrick, his son, Jack, and my daughter, Bridget, to attend Beck's "Restoring Honor" rally. None of us was quite sure what to...

    The Dallas Morning News ^ | September 1, 2010 | Kathleen Parker
    Despite all the words spilled in evaluating Glenn Beck's tent-less revival last weekend, the real meaning may have been hiding in plain sight. Beck's "Restoring Honor" gathering was right out of the Alcoholics Anonymous playbook. It was a 12-step program distilled to a few key words, all lifted from a prayer delivered from the Lincoln Memorial: healing, recovery and restoration. Saturday's Beckapalooza was yet another step in Beck's own personal journey of recovery. Beck's history of alcoholism and addiction is familiar to any who follow him. For Beck, it has been a defining part of his life, and recovery is...

    Yesterday, former Air America editor in chief Beau Friedlander had a silly little blog at the Huffington Post in which he promised a $100,000 bounty for a Glenn Beck sex tape. The post was actually a barely coherent, largely inaccurate history of neoconservatism, plus complaining about Glenn Beck, that ended with a paragraph offering "a $100,000 payday to the person who will come forward with a sex tape or phone records or anything else that succeeds in removing Glenn Beck from the public eye forever." (Friedlander does not actually have this money, which made the whole thing even sillier.)* Today,...

    With mid-term elections just over two months away, roughly one-in-four U.S. voters (26 percent) say they consider themselves part of the Tea Party movement or have close friends or family members who are involved with it. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 13 percent of voters say they themselves are Tea Party members. Thirteen percent (13 percent) more say they have close friends or family members who are part of the Tea Party movement, a loose knit group of Americans nationwide protesting big government and high taxes. Sixty percent (60 percent) say they have no ties to...
