DC Tea Party – What Now?

27 February 2008 Lafayette Park, Washington, DC

Reports on the DC Tea Party have been filed at Hot Air Joe the Plumber at D.C. Tea Party: No one on the Hill gives a rip about you, and Michelle Malkin Scenes from the D.C. Tea Party.

But what the hay I’ll add my two cents and a couple of pictures to boot. Early on there was a general milling about and DC Chapter folks were tough to spot. Once the “organizers” figured out where their permit authorized them to have a 2nd Amendment activity the speechifying got underway with a bullhorn providing the audio amplification.. It wasn’t exactly clear who was going to speak. I think Michelle Malkin was surprised to be called to address the crowd. As usual, she was concise and to the point as opposed to the usual left wing rants that we’ve witnessed during cA.N.S.W.E.R. anti-American rallys.

Trooprally had made up some excellent signs that I hauled down to the rally. I did pass them out but didn’t get any pics of them. I of course had a great sign too but alas you’ll have to take my word for it. I also attempted to pass out OBAMA SUCKAs but the little tags on the lollipops (Dum Dum brand from WALMART) didn’t stick to well. I’ll have to work on the execution a little more. Eventually DC Chapter folks came into my sight. They included Concrete Bob, cindy-true supporter, Tolerance Sucks Rocks, USN Retired and 2nd class citizen. I also ran into Captain Larry Bailey, USN (ret.) of GOE – don’t forget to mark 13 June on your calendar, and Beverly Perlson of The Band Of Mothers, both in town for CPAC. Beverly is looking for Chicago area contacts as she is plotting something The rally size (~250) was very satisfactory for DC on a Friday afternoon. People were ready to go but we didn’t charge the Monica gate. Code Pink was having fun with some hooded orange jump suit folks. Cindy-true-supporter thought that they were work release folks from the DC Jail there to clean up after the rally. But she realized that it would be tough to spot trash with a hood on. Besides conservative always clean up after themselves. There was another group rallying down where the ban the bomb folks normally camp out on the edge of Pennsylvania Ave. I didn’t go over but I think they were Palestinians protesting the paucity of Zero’s latest reward to Hamas and how unjust it was.

Now for the pics:

Well we gathered but I don’t know what’s next. Sort of like walking by a bakery without going in. Less than satisfying.

Thanks for going and writing this insightful AAR. There is much more to do to prevent our great Nation from becoming a Third Class nation.

I’m glad though about the numbers on short notice. From what I’ve read, most Tea Parties had about the same numbers but then again, D.C.’s overall population isn’t exactly the Heartland, where people care about what is happening.

From Mark Hemingway over on The Corner Online: (Whoever had the huge sign with a photoshopped Chuck Schumer as Marie Antoinette that read "Let Them Eat Pork" — I salute you.)

Thanks! Nice to see the rally.

Miss being there with you.

Orlando was a small one, with a larger one planned for the future.

According to KMOX, about 1000 people attended the Tea Party at the Arch in St. Louis yesterday (2/27). It was awesome!

We arrived 45 minutes early and saw only the organizers and a table, so we sat in the car for a while (keeping warm; temps in low 30s). When we went back later, there were hundreds of people in the steps and along Lenore K Sullivan Drive (along the levi of the Mississippi River).

The event was organized by Dana Loesch, a radio host on 97.1-FM, and a blogger named Bill Hennessy. They told KMOX they expected about 50 people "and there were 20 times that many." They indicated that "we will do this again" - perhaps April 15 and July 4. It was a great turnout and a great rally!

Google "Tea Party at the Arch," 97.1-FM, KMOX, Fox 2 News, "Betsy Bruce" (TV reporter at the event), or KMOV-TV. All carried reports on the event. (Betsy Bruce's report was pretty good - showed the crowds on the steps, interviewed a couple people, and showed people dumping tea into the river.) It was fantastic!

Thanks. Philly’s was today. 100 people at Independence Mall. That’s Mall not Hall. We were about 100 yards away on the busier Market St which runs through the Independence Mall complex.

Hope to get a short report up and some photos.

Thanks for the ping. I’ll work with you on those “Obama SUCKERS.” Stickers on flat round suckers would work — sort of like those stickers on the coins with O’s face on them!

Let me know where and when on the 15th of April — good day to protest TAXES!

FReep On!
