Skip to comments.Major rally against ‘Obama’s tyranny’ rocks liberal Massachusetts
Posted on 07/28/2014 7:39:09 AM PDT by cotton1706
On a sweltering Saturday in July, approximately ten thousand protesters gathered on the steps of the Massachusetts state legislature and beyond in order to send a message to Gov. Deval Patrick and President Barack Obama: No more illegal immigrants.
The rally was an obvious sign that even here in ultra-liberal Massachusetts, there is a major political rebellion brewing against the corrupt, arrogant and dangerously disconnected political elites of our country, said rally organizer Jeff Kuhner in an interview with Worldtribune.com. Mr. Kuhner is the host of WRKOs morning radio talk show, The Kuhner Report. He is known as Bostons Bulldozer for his brazen defiance of the states liberal policies and its politically correct culture.
Massachusetts has become ground zero in Middle Americas effort to stop the massive invasion of illegal immigration that threatens to bankrupt and destroy America, he said. The original revolt against British tyranny began here in Boston. I honestly believe that the revolt against Obamas tyranny is beginning here.
[Disclaimer: Let the record show that I, Dr. Grace Vuoto, am also proud to be Mrs. Kuhner!]
The rally was barely over before a controversy erupted in the blogosphere: How many activists were in attendance? A report by CBSs Bree Sison states that about a thousand were present. Instead, The Blaze featured pictures of the event disproving that estimate and a headline highlighting the impressive size of the rally: Boston Teeming with Protesters in Giant Rally Against Housing Illegal Immigrants in the State.
The discrepancy in the numbers regarding how many showed up in the rally is a stark example of how the liberal media is trying to marginalize and suppress the extent of the opposition to Gov. Patricks plan.

I love God's sense of humor.
Speaker Blank Check Boehner keeps Free for All Obama in power by not controlling spending or Impeaching Obama.
Gridlock Reid shuts down the DEMOCRAT BROTHERHOOD GOVERNMENT, (DBG), anytime that Boehner refuses to write Obama a Blank Check.
Free for All Obama is more than happy to play hooky from his day job and fly around on the taxpayers dime to raise Campaign money for Gridlock Reids Senate Candidates, and the DBG.
Blank Check Boehner is the key man to allow Free for All Obama to continue to fundamentally transform America, and Obama knows it.
Force Boehner to resign, and Obama will be at the mercy of New Speaker Jim Jordan or Trey Gowdy.
Keep Boehner as Speaker and there is very little reason to expect Mid-Term Voters to find an effective difference between Republicans and Democrats.
Imagine what the reported attendance would have been if this was a rally for a liberal cause.
My take on this is the “not in my backyard” rally. Do as I say, not as I do is a liberal’s main mantra. Like the first lady for instance...tells schools to give kids broccoli, then proceeds to suck down butter-dripped lobster tails. This rally is for the wrong reason, they’re not protesting the illegality and blatant disregard for the constitution, these liberals simply don’t want it in their backyard.
Someone named Omnibus on the RadioDiscussions Boston board posted the following—unaware that Jeff is not Jewish. I pointed out Jeff is of Croat-Canadian heritage and according to Wikipedia is a “pious Christian/United Church of Christ”.
“It turns out that the alleged protest march on the State House on Saturday, July26 against housing the undocumented immigrant childre was nothing more than a publicity stunt by the guy with the hard “G’s”; WRKO rightwing nut Jeff Kuhner.
You would think that this person with the strange foreign pronunciation pattern would have had an historical memory of some of his own people. In 1938 the ship the S.S St. Louis sailed from Europe with primarily people of the Jewish faith who were attempting to escape Nazi Germany. That great liberal President, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and a large American Anti-Semitic cabal would not let the ship dock in the United States. In time the ship with the same passengers returned to Europe and German and most of the passengers on the S.S. St. Louis were later murdered in Germany and Poland’s concentration camps.
“Have we come so little a distance that the ilk of a Jeff Kuhner who should know more than most about discrimination uses the plight of innocent children to publicize his own failing radio program and rightwing nut agenda?Yes, it will most likely cost us all money we will never get back to protect these children but it is the moral and right thing to do. Fortunately, according to polling that was just released today more than 50% of the citizens of Massachusetts agree with Governor Patrick that we cannot abandon these children. So, it looks like the very strange and radical Jeff Kuhner’s publicity stunt has failed and he can take his program and his hard “G’s” into certain obscurity.”
“This rally is for the wrong reason, theyre not protesting the illegality and blatant disregard for the constitution”
Not true. Jeff Kuhner’s listeners (including myself) are not the liberals in the state, but the conservatives who are continually shafted by not only the democrats here, but the go-along republicans. Those who were at the rally were the same people who in 2010, came out of the woodwork in droves to get Scott Brown elected.
There are conservatives in Massachusetts, and on Saturday, thousands of us gathered to protest the governor’s schemes.
Bunch of NIMBYRATS.
That’s a very white crowd. And I expect if all the ill.. er undocumented were being settled in Texas, New Mexico, and AZ they wouldn’t be protesting.
What a joke. Jeff is an ardent Catholic. We said the Our Father on the steps of the State House on Saturday.
Will the people rise up? Will the GOP promise to repeal the order if they regain the WH? Will they impeach Obama for it? I suspect the GOPe will be AWOL since they want to do the same thing.
Yup. As soon as I saw the post by Omnibus, I pointed it out to him. Jeff does have a way of pronouncing words where it sounds like a k is goingk to be added to what he is sayingk... and apparently Omnibus thought Jeff was Jewish.
Years ago WRKO had the late Jerry Williams who was seen as liberal but later said he was a populist and a muckraker. He opposed Gov Dukakis’ incl his run for President. Jerry also had a rally—against building a prison in a town that didn’t want it—and the media said a lot fewer people were there than actually were. (Wiki said United Church of Christ, but let’s just say whatever he is, he’s a Christian.)
Nothing wrong with that. Once people understand the costs associated with immigration, legal and illegal, they will sing a different tune. I don't care how they come to that realization, but the sooner the better. Every state is a border state now.
“Bunch of NIMBYRATS.”
Those at the rally were not NIMBYRATS, they were conservatives that were striking a blow against a governor who is helping Obama in his insidious plans.
Yes, I was very disappointed to see that.
All politics is local. The people are protesting in Texas, AZ, New Mexico, and all across the country wherever these "children" are headed. Local communities are rising up, which is the most effective way to show dissent.
*There are conservatives in Massachusetts, and on Saturday, thousands of us gathered to protest the governors schemes.*
Liberals only outnumber conservatives in MA by about three percent. It’s the political machine in MA that’s liberal. The people are about evenly divided.
You can bet Obama'll get lotsa help from lock-stepping loyalist Democrat Gov Deval Patrick. Deval was the one who obstructed the public's right to know---Deval ordered Massachusetts govt agencies NOT to disseminate the welfare haul of the Boston bombers and the tax-sucking Tsarnaev family.
INMMIGRANTS CASH IN---FORCE TAXPAYERS TO FINANCE THEIR DIRTY DEEDS---Sources who saw 500 pages of welfare documents requested by a state legislator told News Center 5 that the entire Tsarnaev family, including (1) the two bombing suspects' parents, (2) the two suspects themselves, (3) their sisters, (4) the widow of the suspect killed, and, (5) their child -- received "every conceivable public benefit available out there."

The hot NY political buzz is prez wannabe NY gov Andy Cuomo is considering
Gov Deval as his running mate. Deval is busily upping his name recognition,
hoping to score political points with Gov Andy.
Here, vice-president hopeful Deval applauds at the installation
of the state's new police chief--- wearing her spiffy Commandant
Herman Goerring uniform (not photoshopped).
This is Gov Deval's personal bodyguard.
MA is a fairly white state. 83% white only with just 8% black and 6% Asian.
Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha!
Thats a very white crowd.
Yes, I was very disappointed to see that.
WHY? White is the new oppressed.
They should be protesting.
Why? Almost all of the people that actually care about this country are white. I go to TEA party rallies and other types and they are mostly, if not all, white. Blacks are afraid to go if they do care and the rest are content with what's going on.
The GOP are Obama Enablers ...... they are as guilty as Obama in my opinion by allowing his lawlessness to go unchecked. They have tools under the Constitution and refuse to use them, therefore they will lose them and are setting a horrific precedent for the future .... assuming there is a future since the country itself will be in ruins by the time Obama leaves office.
I just think it would look better if there were people of all colors protesting. The government looks at those pictures and disregards the entire concept of the protest thinking - “that’s just the racist white people”. Government doesn’t care about the racist white people, just keep working, keep paying taxes and keep your mouth shut. They would listen better if there were people of a variety of colors.
Right... but they’re the only ones paying taxes so they’re the only ones with a stake in it...for now
That will change
In the picture on the right, notice who seems to be laughing the loudest? What an a-hole!
Cops in Massachusetts are largely for show. I was recently at a sheriff's official annual dinner. There was an honor guard of deputies in dress uniforms. A close look revealed that they were all wearing holstered shapes -- the teaching aid rubber "guns" that cannot fire anything. Sad that MA sheriffs don't trust their own deputies to wear real firearms.
Will Speaker Boehner allow the Senate Immigration Bill onto the floor of the House for a vote?
Could working class voters who still vote for democrats finally be pulling their heads out of their asses? I certainly hope they are. It’s been long overdue. Maybe more black Americans will finally wake up to see how they are being used by the democrat party. The illegal invasion being orchestrated by the democrats will harm black Americans the most.
Million man march...
I always said scratch a Liberal and you'll find a fascist.
Never seen so many white people in one place.
Interesting. Thanks for the realtime report.
Why does seeing white people disappoint you?
The Dems need a Trojan Horse bill from the House so they can attach the Gang of 8 bill to it during conferencing. It wouldn't surprise me if the GOPe tries to get this done prior to the midterms. The pressure from the GOP's corporate paymasters is enormous along with the Chamber of Commerce. It is already rumored that the CoC will endorse Landrieu in the midterms.
I think you're deliberately being obtuse. It's not that seeing white people disappoints me, it's the fact that in the picture it's ONLY white people. I would like to see ALL American's get together and send a message to the President that we need to take care of ourselves first, we can't have the entire 3rd world on our doorstep and be expected to take care of them.
Thanks for the correction.
Go to a Red Sox,Bruins,Patriots,or Celtics game.99.5 percent white.
Seeing a bunch of Americans protesting for America, in what is conceivably the strongest liberal stronghold, should fill your heart with joy regardless of the color of their skin.
I’m praying that everyone wakes up to what democrats are doing... They’re hurting all of us...black, white, brown... they see us as their servants.
