Jennifer Burke's, (Social Media Director for the Tea Party) email of this morning:

Dear Patriot:

We had a tragedy in Boston yesterday. On a day that was to be filled with jubilance culminating in finishing an iconic marathon that thousands had trained years for, multiple bombs were detonated. We don’t know much, but we know that people died, including an 8 year old boy, and hundreds more were injured, many gruesomely.

What saddens my heart is that within moments after this terrorist attack, members of the lamestream media, from MSNBC”s Chris Matthews to the New York Times Nicolas Kristof, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, and CNN’s Luke Russert, used this opportunity of grief, death, and shock to further their agenda to paint the members of the Tea Party Movement as radical, dangerous, and violent extremists with absolutely no evidence to connect any member of the movement to this violent, terrorist act.

It is shameful that a group of people who merely stand for the Constitution and the freedoms that it grants us are smeared in such a disgusting way. During this time, the country should band together. The people should be outraged. We should be ultra protective of our freedom and our way of life; determined to not allow fear to prevent us from living life. WE CANNOT LET THEM WIN.

Stand with Boston

Regardless of your political affiliation, above all else, we are Americans. Whoever did these terrible acts are COWARDS. Those in the media who are smearing this movement are aiding an abetting this cowardice. We cannot allow their attempt to create fear, their attempt to alter the way in which we live our life, take hold. We must send a message that we will NOT cower to their terroristic tactics.

As I sit writing this email, I am reminded of a song that we sang nearly every day when I attended Girls State, oh so many years ago.

This is my country

Land of my birth

This is my country

Grandest on Earth

I pledge thee my allegiance

America the bold

For this is my country

To have and to hold

THIS is my country and we will stand by her and defend all that she stands for.

If left unchecked, these terrorist acts will demand armed citizens assist in both law enforcement and peacekeeping for the reestablishment of domestic tranquility.

It is unchecked! Our Government is too busy taxing us to death and has weaken the only strength America has, it's people. The communists Democratic party has destroyed America with this green crap that has regulated America to a stalled Nation. We have nothing from Government worthwhile because of their constant destroying our freedoms instead of protecting up.
