I reported in my column this week the news the Tea Party-bashing MSM doesn’t want to report: Republicans who supported the bailouts, the stimulus, and tax increases are in just as much hot water as Democrats. I told you that California GOP chairman Ron Nehring and GOP Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger were booed in Sacramento and GOP Gov. Jon Huntsman was booed in Utah.
Now, see this.
At the Greenville SC Tea Party last night, via Palmetto Scoop, an estimated 3,000 people booed and heckled GOP Rep. Gresham Barrett, who supported both the trillion-dollar TARP and now supports the trillion-dollar porkulus package. The crowd blew air horns as he tried to speak. Do you think the politicians are getting the message yet? And do you think someone in the MSM might grow up, stop wallowing in sexual teabagging jokes, and report these newsworthy developments? The anger at reckless spenders in Washington is palpable, deep-seated, bipartisan, nationwide, and not going away:
Update: From reader Michelle C.:
I’m a big fan of your site. I noticed that your article about the Greenville tea party states that there were 3000 people there. I live in Greenville, and last night on the 6:00 news, when the party had just begun, WYFF stated that the crowd was around 5000 people. On the 11:00 news, WYFF stated that the police count was around 10,000 people for the tea party. I thought you might enjoy hearing how large the crowd really was.
Also, here’s the funny thing– the state Democratic Party decided to hold a “Save Our Schools” rally at the same time (6:00 – 7:30) on the OTHER SIDE of the Bi-lo Center. The rally was to protest Mark Sanford for not taking the stimulus money for schools. According to WYFF 11:00 news, around 100 people showed up. According to the Democratic Party, around 200 people showed up (see Greenvilleonline.com).
The stark contrast in crowds, when shown on TV last night, was hilarious.
Keep up the good work.blog comments powered by Disqus
