Southern Tea Parties

This is Robert Stacy McCain speaking to the crowd of demonstrators at Wednesday's Tuscaloosa Tax Day Tea Party on the quad of the University of Alabama campus (video here).

Also, here's Jeff Emanuel's esssay at Pajamas Media, "What the Tea Parties Represent" (Emanuel spoke to a crowd of 400 in Macon, Georgia) :

On Wednesday, over 200,000 ordinary Americans gathered at nearly 1,000 locations around the country. Fed up with high taxes, increasing debt, and expanding government encroachment into their private lives, they gathered to express their displeasure with the Obama administration’s policies and to rally around conservative ideas to push for a new way forward for America ....

The reaction from liberal media and pundits to this widespread demonstration of and for traditional American values was predictable, to say the least. With that most ingrained and dependable of leftist traits — projection — on full display, liberals from California to Capitol Hill, including Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D), declared these hundreds of grassroots gatherings to be “astroturfed” – events funded by “corporate front groups” – and (
according to one senior Democratic aide) attended by “neo-Nazis,” “secessionists,” and “racists.”

How far we’ve come from 2008, when “community organizers” were being compared to Jesus (and government executives to Pontius Pilate) and dissent and protest were being hailed as the highest possible forms of patriotism!
