suess 2If I had my druthers and was not up to my ears in obligations this weekend, I would definitely be on that Tea Party Express to Washington D.C..

Again conservatives prove that the party of ass is not the only one that can rally and protest.

Conservatives Gather in Capital

Critics of Obama Policies, Energized by Town-Hall Meetings, Will March Saturday

MICHAEL M. PHILLIPS and NAFTALI BENDAVID

Conservative activists from around the country are gathering in Washington on Saturday, seeking to continue their momentum in shaping the national debate on everything from health care to White House staffing.

The demonstrators, who plan to march up Pennsylvania Avenue to the Capitol, are drawing their passion not from Bush-era fights over terrorism or gay marriage, but rather from Reagan-era debates over big government programs. The event comes on the heels of antitax events, dubbed tea parties, in April, and a series of congressional town-hall meetings nationwide last month that elicited angry criticism of health-care proposals favored by President Barack Obama and his Democratic allies.

“I can’t figure out to save me what [Mr. Obama and the Democrats] are trying to accomplish, unless they want socialism,” said

73-year-old Joseph Wright, a retired paper-mill worker. Mr. Wright rode from Tallahassee, Fla., to Washington this week on one of the many chartered buses bringing in demonstrators from states as far-flung as Massachusetts and Arkansas.

Saturday’s rally comes just a few months after Mr. Obama’s victory seemed to have left the conservative movement in disarray. But in recent weeks, critics of the administration’s programs and spending have succeeded in putting Mr. Obama on the defensive, threatening his health-care drive, prompting parents to boycott a routine presidential speech to schoolchildren and forcing the resignation of a White House adviser with a left-leaning past.

While the movement has gotten considerable attention, it is unclear just how broad it is. Both conservatives and liberals Friday tried to manage expectations, hoping to claim a surprisingly high or low turnout after the event.

White House officials on Friday professed to know nothing of the planned demonstrations. White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs queried reporters about the planners and their issues. “I don’t know who the group is,” he said with a shrug.

Other Democrats suggested the protesters are embittered, fringe conservatives fueled by radio and TV talk-show hosts. “There’s a lot of energy, but it’s negative energy,” said Democratic strategist John Lapp. “At the end of the day, Republicans are left with bomb-throwing, screaming, frothing and a lot of opposition.”

suessWe will see how long after the conservative demonstrations today it will take before the mainstream media points out all of the racist signage that says things like “Read the Bill”, ‘Don’t Thread On Me” , “Just Say No To Obamacare”. Who will get called a tea bagger this time around? How many guns will they find?

If any of my readers are lucky enough to attend the rally, please share your stories with us.

Meanwhile in case anyone missed it last night, Glenn Beck gave an awesome testimony about the aftermath of 9/11. He cried.

    I wish I were there in more than spirit.

    As for this comment:

    “There’s a lot of energy, but it’s negative energy,” said Democratic strategist John Lapp. “At the end of the day, Republicans are left with bomb-throwing, screaming, frothing and a lot of opposition.”

    This particular ass has been looking at his own supporters and projecting their actions onto the other side. These Tea Parties, from what I have seen, have pretty much all been very well controlled and non-violent. The Dems are just upset that their opponents, and they aren’t just Republicans, are beating them at their own game.

  2. Michelle Malkin is reporting that police estimate 1.2 million in attendance at the rally! I wonder if the official MSM line on this will be “thousands of angry astroturfers” or “poor turnout of fringe right wingers.”

    So far, our apologizing President has not mentioned the Citizens of the United States of America that have taken their message to the streets in opposition to his Health Care proposal and failed handling of the economy.
    Will the big “0”(pronounced zero) have anything to say to these hard working patriotic Americans? Or does he only listen to “Professional Community Organizers”?

    Now, if they wanted to set up a brothel………

    Afrocity,

    You are gifted, indeed. The green eggs and ham spoof has me cleaning diet pepsi from my keyboard!

  5. Afrocity, you out did yourself with this one! Great post!

    Wow, I accidentally ran across your post–loved the Dr. Seuss spoofs. I was at the protest and afterwards asked a cop where my friends and I could grab a drink (who better to know than a cop?) He told us where to go, and when he saw our Gadsen (Don’t Tread On Me) flags stopped us to say that the protestors were “so nice” and “clean” saying that volunteers for the 9/12 project had un-piled the mountains of trash spilling out of the cans in order to put them into trash bags. He said that we were polite, listened to direction, and very friendly. From a D.C. cop I take that as a big compliment–they’ve seen their fair share of protests and know whats-what. I can only hope that the Don’t Tread On Me protestors continue to leave that impression with police and crowd-control personnel across the nation. I had a great time, I’m glad I went.
