See video below of the boos and jeers McCain supporters got in Manhattan from the “civil and respectful” crowd.
I wrote the following last October: “Most of us are mad about the blatant media bias that has favored Obama at every hand and about the $850 billion dollar bailout. 95% of the people were opposed to that and they did it anyway. We want somebody to take notice.”
Apparently, many others felt the same way I did, and started meeting in the tea party protests across the country, and especially on April 15th, 2009, large crowds met in towns and cities in every state, absolutely a grass roots movement, folks carrying their little handmade signs. The media ignored us at first and later made fun of us and made ugly jokes. The president even made light of the movement, saying, don’t pay any attention to “people waving tea bags around.” And so now we have the town hall meetings and the American people are saying: You have ignored us. You have ridiculed us. But we will be heard.
And what is the reaction from the White House? What is the message from the Uniter, the one who said, “I may not have won your vote, but I hear your voices, and I will be your President too.”
The message from the White House this week is, “If you get hit, we will punch back twice as hard.” Reminds me of something Obama said in Philadelphia during the campaign, “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.”
REPOST from October 10, 2008: ThePeoplesCube.com presents: A Pro-McCain march on the Upper West Side in Manhattan on Sunday, September 21, 2008. A group of McCain-Palin supporters dare to march through the Upper West Side – greeted by boos, jeers, and flipped middle fingers.
Funny, this was on September 21st but the MSM never, ever were concerned about “rage.” No concern by David Gergen about “incendiary” speech. No New York Times op-ed pieces by Frank Rich. No Associated Press breaking news. No wall to wall coverage by CNN and MSNBC and FOX as well. No, the media storm erupted only when someone spoke angrily at a McCain/Palin rally.
And just to be clear, I don’t think it’s that anybody is angry at Obama or his supporters. Most of us are mad about the blatant media bias that has favored Obama at every hand and about the $850 billion dollar bailout. 95% of the people were opposed to that and they did it anyway. We want somebody to take notice.
THE LEFTIST IDEA OF UNITY IS, AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN, THE ELIMINATION OF DISSENT
