As the Occupy Wall Street protests grow “increasingly debauched,” Tea Partiers in Tennessee remind us what a polite, impassioned and principled protest looks like:
Hundreds of Gibson Guitar supporters rallied for the legendary guitar factory at a dual demonstration-concert in Nashville, Tenn. Saturday, following a federal raid in August over the companys importation practices.
The We Stand With Gibson rally drew about 500 attendees, including members of the Tea Party, according to the Tennessean. Some carried signs that read Whos next and When they come for you, who will be left to speak?
Gibson supporters have railed against perceived government overreach, saying its putting a boot on the neck of business owners during tough economic times.
Just watch this video to further contrast the flavor:
This Administration cannot ‘quash’ Free Enterprise, fast enough. That the businesses they attack - mark for ruin; or even just ‘scare’ by tactics’ - are distinguished as more Republican; is an all too critical factor, of course.
Have any country, rock, or jazz musicians who use Gibsons joined in the protest?
