Skip to comments.Sunday's Tea Party on Lexington Battle Green shut down by pro-gay RINO Republicans
Posted on 07/23/2010 8:58:57 PM PDT by massmike
The Tea Party scheduled for this Sunday afternoon July 25, on the historic Lexington Battle Green has been canceled.
It's the only time in America, to our knowledge, that a Tea Party has been shut down by Republican activists.
The organizers were forced to cancel the event by "Republicans" sympathetic to the homosexual movement and hostile to the parents' rights movement that exposes the taxpayer-supported homosexual agenda in the schools. The main speakers, prodded by a socially liberal Tea Party (and Republican) activist, announced that because Brian Camenker of MassResistance was also speaking, they would not participate.
The cancellation was first reported in the local newspaper, the Lexington Minuteman. Eric Dahlberg, a left-wing Republican candidate for State Senate, told the newspaper "Some consider MassResistance a hate group, I don't want to be within a mile of an event that gives someone like that [Camenker] a stage."

“.....The cancellation was first reported in the local newspaper, the Lexington Minuteman. Eric Dahlberg, a left-wing Republican candidate for State Senate.....”
Personal opinion is that there should NOT be anything one could possibly call a left-wing Republican.
We have to regain control of that Political Party.
I can dream can’t I.
I don’t care how much money they make up there, I couldn’t live there.
F em’...have the rally anyways...
Oh please! This wreaks of an invented
story made to sound like Tea Party
infighting. I’ll believe none of it.
“...Eric Dahlberg, a left-wing Republican candidate ...”
RINO disease ID here. RINO Kill (politically speaking, of course) is priority ONE!
Now there is something you do not see every day... I thought they were called moderate Republicans.
I agree, have it anyway! If they had people willing to speak it was pointless to cancel. Matter of fact, I think they are guilty of caving in to the pressure. Isn’t free speech one of the cornerstones of the Tea Party? Well, I thought the Bill of Rights was a biggie to all of us but what do I know?
Grow a spine and have the rally anyway.
The ruling class strikes again.
This is the difficult thing about tea parties.
With no authenticated leadership, you can’t control the message or the meetings.
Yeah, very catty. “forced to cancel”—could have held the event regardless
No guts, no glory.
Honestly, if Camencar was trying to make the tea party event about gay marriage, then he should have been kicked out. THe TP isn’t a grab bag of issues; it needs to focus like a laser beam on our out of control welfare state.
THERE is the cancer! THERE is the Lie! Excise it!
BullCr*p.....we HAD no “leadership” at the inception of the Tea Parties and they have turned into a strong, patriotic, MASSIVE group that has power to frighten progressives!!!!
THIS pathetic group may have lost it’s spine, but the Tea Party has NOT.
WE are the “leaders” of the Tea Party. The “message” has reverberated all over the country and it’s quite clear and HAS been since February, 2009.
Yup. They should just have the event anyway. I’ll save my outrage for other things.
“WE are the leaders of the Tea Party. “
I am not against the tea parties. But when everyone is the leader, then no one is.
An attorney or a dj or a reporter or a cop or whoever could assume anyone is in charge, and that that person they pick out of the crowd speaks for them all.
That’s the danger inherent in not having any leadership structure.
Under most circumstances, it’d be fine with me, but sometimes you get a nut and sometimes you get an infiltrator.
Homosexual issues just shouldn't be at the top of anyone's list.
They have to be driven out. Lefties should be drummed out and completely shunned.
Brian Camenker of MassResistance represents what the overwhelming majority of Americans valued only a few short years ago. That he would be characterized as representative of a “hate group” shows what a radical leftist this so-called “conservative” is.
The lib agenda is a unified whole. The entire tree is corrupt; why would you consume one branch?
True but that's the way it ought to be. While the NAACP was attempting to build their lie 10 days ago, there was a synchronized attempt on left-wing radio (mostly Sirius Left) to link Armey's (who I can't stand) FreedomWorks to outright control of the Tea Party. It didn't stick -- in fact it barely rose above the sub rosa -- precisely because Tea Party power is decentralized.
Now I see the LA Times is focused on smearing the Tea Party Express today -- again, it's not the Tea Party, because the Tea Party is a set of ideas. And as far as I'm concerned The Tea Party is was and always will be entirely Santelli's baby -- he's the Godfather of this Movement and hasn't disappointed me yet.
Yep. It sounds to me like this “event” was set up so they could make as big a splash as possible by cancelling it. If not, mistake #1 was to load the speaker’s roster with fudgepackers. Mistake #2 was to cancel the event when said fudgepackers refused to speak if differing opinions were offered. Even in homo friendly Massachussetts, straight people are a majority.
Eric Dahlberg, a left-wing Republican candidate for State Senate
Stupid distraction from what’s really important right now.
Homosexual issues just shouldn’t be at the top of anyone’s list.
Problem is, the homosexual agenda issues ARE at the top of the lefists’ list, so by doing and saying nothing, THEY WIN! GOT IT???
MA’s answer to a Republican candidate is just such a RINO, he supports all of this nonsense, has a homosexual running mate, and in fact is not a Republican at all. This state is pathetic! And I cannot wait for the day I wave it good riddance.
We know how to deal with infiltrators. We expose them for what they are.

The Republican Party and Tea Parties need leftist homo-nazi promoting "Republicans" in the same way we need more cancer and syphilis. Leftists, liberals, liberaltarians and RINOs are just a continuum of the same evil disease. NO RINOs and NO liberaltarians. Both promote immorality and an overweening government. Liberaltarians play pretend that they don't, but anarchy and chaos and barbarians running amok (which is would liberaltarianism would devolved to in short order) would then devolve into tyranny, next step. No doubt about it.
And anyone saying that our country's sole problem is too big government and too high taxes either is seriously uninformed or is wearing moral blinders.
"Men are qualified for civil liberty in exact proportion to their disposition to put moral chains upon their own appetites--in proportion as their love of justice is above their rapacity;--in proportion as their soundness and sobriety of understanding is above their vanity and presumption;--in proportion as they are more disposed to listen to the counsels of the wise and good, in preference to the flattery of knaves. Society cannot exist, unless a controlling power upon the will and appetite is placed somewhere: and the less of it there is within, the more there must be without. It is ordained in the eternal constitution of things, that men of intemperate minds can not be free. Their passions forge their fetters." -- Edmund Burke
Libertarians are NOT NOT NOT libertines!
Conservatives fail to understand that morality must come from within the society itself. It can not be imposed by law.
What this nation needs is massive Judeo Christian revival. Do that and we will need far less government.
I asked this of someone else, and received no reply. For whom do you intend to vote? I am at my wit’s end.
Many libertarians are libertines. Many.
For the first almost 200 years of this country, each state had laws against abortion, pornography and homosexual acts.
Libertarians hate these laws.
These are good laws, entirely consistent with the Constitution and historical morality.
Believe it Jo. The two factions (the Libertarian Party and the Conservative values crowd) were eventually bound to clash. I saw it from afar when I read that the Tea Party Movement concept was started by the IL Libertarian Party.
trisham, I just don’t know yet. I’m am stuck on “does it even matter”. I may have to vote cahill who is not even close to what I would want in that office. Heck of a position our state GOP put us in isn’t it?
You do know that Kinison died in 1992, almost 18 years before Obozo became pResident?
It’s an illustration...based on Kinison’s pointed and forceful delivery...not a biography.
Brian Camenker is an American hero. It is to the Lexington Tea Party’s eternal shame that they allowed him to be insulted like this. Damn them.
Problem is homosexual agenda pushers are aggressors and their unconstitutional agenda is being forced on everyone via judicial fiat and traitorous legislators as well. Homosexual agenda is the most important thing for those pushing it and ignoring is the exact reason they have so much power today.
Not fighting back against aggressors leads to disaster. Your position enables them to win. You like this, apparently.
