    Hey there,

    Thanks for posting this. Quick correction though, the protester mentioned and pictured does not identify as male so if perhaps you could change the last line of this to read gender neutral that would be greatly appreciated I’m sure.

    The violence is never (never never) coming from the Tea Party. Please show me I wrong without having to be creative.

      How about HATE and bigotry coming from the Tea Party. They were ther ones that invited 3 anti-gay speakers to talk not to talk about fiscal responsibility. But to talk about their hate for homosexuals.

    There was actually 1 speaker that made it a point to define the principles of the real Tea Party, and separate themselves from social issues. It was stated that social issues only divide, and that the core values are Consitutionally limited government, fiscal responsibilty, and free markets. If the sound system wasn’t rigged not to be loud enough and so many people weren’t yelling instead of listening, they would have understood that the Tea Party has been highjacked by minions that want to create disruption rather than bring people together. Anytime you chose a side within the government and use it to distract from the actual issues at hand, you wiill always be used as a pawn by the establishment while they sit on the hill and laugh about it over lunch.
