Skip to comments.It's Heeeeere! 9/12 Movement Descends on DC - Photo Essay
Posted on 09/11/2009 6:58:13 PM PDT by GVnana
Mad as hell and ain't going to take it anymore: people from across the country descended upon Washington D.C. today for a long weekend of Dick Armey-organized activism.
Here's, Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK), who hopes the country can avoid destruction under Obama, kicking off the Liberty Summit. See the agenda for the next few days of Tea Party madness.
Tea Party folk assemble in the DC Armory to listen to the likes of Sen. Inhofe, Dick Armey, and Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC).
A 9/12 movement participant with appropriate flair.
FreedomWorks and other groups, such as the Tea Party Express, are bussing in supporters from all over the country.
House Minority Leader John Boehner spoke at the opening rally: "The American people can stop this nonsense in Washington. It's going to take the involvement of the American people to say, 'Enough is enough.'"
Armey defended heckler Rep. Joe Wilson. "Give poor old Joe Wilson a break here," he said.
More from the kick off rally.

WTF?! How/why does Armey take credit for this? My understanding is that this movement doesn't have a "leader" per se.
Dick Armey is head of FreedowWorks I believe.
Those of us not able to make it to Washington need to wake up in the morning and flood the telephone lines.
Send emails, faxes.
My emails will say:
YOUR SERVANTS, NOT ROYALTY.
Moderators...you guys and gals ready for tomorrow? How are we doing this thing? One big thread or one for comments, one for photos only, etc.???
Relax. Dick Armey is the chairman of Freedom Works.
Look at all the politicians...what a shame.
I’m wondering about webcam. Any info on that?
No he does not take credit...just heard him in an interview..he said the MSM keeps bring up his name trying to pretend it was NOT grassroots.
I think you need to mend that slightly -- it sends the wrong message. Try:
YOU'RE SERVANTS, NOT ROYALTY.
When I was at the Promise Keepers years back, there were jumbotrons and such...if they are to have any of those, one can point webcam(s) at the jumbotrons and likely wouldn’t have to move them.
Oh. Missed Hannity, therefore the interview. Sorry...as you were. Or, to quote Emily Lutilla: “Never mind.” LOL
What does he expect people to think when he shows up on television every five minutes? Hannity interviewed him tonight on his show...the Tea Party bus was right behind him.
We’re here and ready for the rally tomorrow! Met two couples just on a small tour bus this afternoon that are here for the rally too. I think there is going to be a great turnout! Whoo whoo!!
Tea Party Express just posted a very exciting entry on the last stop in NJ. Can’t post it to Activism since it’s a blog, but check it out: http://teapartyexpress.wordpress.com/
Thanx for catching that.
My kudos to you, patriot! Did you drive in from Illinois?
Thank you so much for all your posts. I am keeping up with all that is happening and so excited for all who are attending.
Ping me to all your various postings if you would please.
Terrific photos! Now start counting and report back to us with the number. ;O)
Dumb question: where do we all meet tomorrow?
I wish I cuold be there -
Sheesh! Do I have to do everything? :)
Saturday, September 12th
9:00am - Crowd gathers at Freedom Plaza
10:00am - March begins down Pennsylvania Avenue

West Front of the U.S. Capitol
What!? No giant paper mache puppets? What kind of demonstration are they running?
Thank you. I will do my best, though my mobility is limited.
God, I wish I could be there.Take care, good luck, and git`er done!
Me too. God bless and keep safe all those who have the courage and the heart to go stand tall for our country.
Be loud. Be proud. Be precise. Be polite. We’re all proud of the participants and proud to be an American!!! Always have been. Unlike some we know.
We need to try and attend any events that are staged in our local areas,show solidarity with our DC brothers and sisters.As one Republic,in one voice,enough of your big brother mentality,we demand you respect our Constitution!
I think you mean "YOU'RE SERVANTS". I knew you did ............... FRegards
Well, it seems that things are off to a good start!
We’ll be checking in from time to time tomorrow to see how it’s going - Especially when BECK is covering it on FOX from 1 to 3, I think it is.
Those of us who can’t make it can pray for the safety of those who can.
If the SEIU thugs or other moonbats show up I hope that someone keeps the video running at all times, so that any attacks, aggression or abuse can be put out over the web for public viewing even if the corrupt INjustice system down there refuses to arrest or prosecute them.
Here’s hoping for an accurate count, as we can be assured that the State controlled media will massively underestimate it as they always do.
Won’t it be grand if we far exceed the numbers that showed up at the “Million Man March”?
I hope someone thought to bring in a LOT of porta-potties and a good supply of TP; they’re going to need ‘em, methinks!
Damn it....did it again.
My wife gets on me all the time.
Ok, so I’m not the brightest bulb....but I love my country.
Does that count?
NO Boehner....you didn't do "enough" to back up Joe Wilson.
