But when the "normal" (aka normally silent majority) get fed up they start to act out in a manner that Barb just doesn't approve of. And apparently we're too well dressed.
I went to a Tea Party protest on the 4th of July and had a blast. I went alone in all my pregnant discomfort and boy did I feel scared among all those rowdy rebels.
These guys were really vicious ... don't they look like scary right wing mob dogs?
Phew...I barely escaped with my life after photographing these folks. I suppose Nancy thinks this is too well dressed as well.
And anyone with puppies and babies can't be up to any good. Look out! They're storming the front doors!!!
The police were there and I chatted with them...they were pretty bored. Their job consisted of directly pregnant women to the bathroom (hey, it was a hot day and I'd been drinking a lot of water) and standing in the shade.
When are these elitist politicians going to realize that the NORMAL people are sick and tired of their bullying, excess spending, and passing laws without even understanding the consequences. Trying to ram these things down our throats and telling us it's for our own good ... that just pisses me off.
I just love how the media is going along with the Democratic spin that these "protesters" (aka citizens) attending town hall meetings and venting their frustration are just brain washed, "tea bagging", right wing extremists.
"...we've seen increasing numbers of militant right-wing activists attending public meetings across the country targeting members of Congress and President Obama...The people who show up are far right wing idealogues recruited by paid organizers...
...We can expect to see anti-abortion groups, pro-gun groups, insurance company employees (mandated by employers to come out) militia groups, and anti-immigration groups..."
Un-freaking-believable...we're right-wing activists...being paid. (Where's my check? It must be lost in the mail.) Militant activists even. How do they explain the registered democrats coming to these meetings to complain?
Nancy even suggested that there have been Swastikas brandished. Heard that little snippet from her on the radio this morning. Classy.
I guess it's okay to protest as long as it's for a left wing cause. It's okay to block streets, break into foreclosed homes, harass business people...as long as it's being done by Acorn or other lefty groups.
But when it's just regular everyday Americans...moms, dads, aunts, uncles...well then that's just not right. We're getting uppity and forgetting our place.
I'm sick of it all.
