Nine months ago millions descended on the national mall to inaugurate the first black President. Little did I know on that cold January day that this demonstration would be the start of America’s awakening to Washington and the right to peacefully assemble.
Last week for better and for worse, millions of Americans descended on Washington. Yet the scene was much different from the Inauguration.
An estimated 700,000 Americans were bussed in from across the country to send such constructive messages (sarcasm) as “You Aren’t Really a citizen,” “You are more dangerous than Osama “and told cameras that Obama “intends on doing what Hitler never could do…destroy America” from the inside.
The Taxed Enough Already (TEA) party was organized by the Freedom Works Foundation.
I’m sorry I couldn’t be at the tea party, due to other freelance commitments, but I’m so glad Max Blumenthal was. Check out this excellent citizen journalism report.
