Houston Tea Party Society Protests Nancy Pelosi…

The local media is starting to report on the groups who DO NOT WANT more debt loaded onto us…it is snarky and at the very end but they still reported it….progress :0)

Houston Chronicle:

…In front of the Wortham Center, activists offered their own greetings to those attending the speech.

“Turn back while you still have the chance! Don’t support the liar!” Doug Audirsch, of Porter, shouted while hoisting a sign over his head that called for “Less 1984 — More 1776.”..

Most of those making their way through the gantlet (MiM here pretty sure they mean gauntlet, as if 600 peaceful Americans is like the Clint Eastwood film lol) seemed to take the jeers and catcalls in stride. Some of the attendees blew kisses, while at least two made obscene gestures to the activists.

“I think they were probably prepared for this,” said Paul Kelver of Spring with a laugh. “She’s so far away from mainstream American that it’s unbelievable.”

Police estimated the crowd at 600. Houston Police Department officials at the scene said there were no reported incidents or arrests.

KHOU.com gave the protest top billing, oh yeah baby. Video at their story as well…

Hundreds of protesters showed up outside the Wortham Theater in Houston to let House Speaker Nancy Pelosi know they weren’t happy with Washington.

Protesters held signs saying they were upset with the stimulus plan. They also called for tax cuts, spending cuts and a major change in congress.

“You look at the deficit we’ve put together to date and it’s not good. What’s coming over the next 10 years if people have to pay down this debt? It’s more than their mortgage payment. How can we continue to afford this spending?” said Tim Graney from Katy.

Update: American Legion Responds…The Criminalization of Politics and Free Expression Has Begun…..

MM has the response to the DHS report from the American Legion, which objects to the characterization of veterans as potential radicals…

…In spite of this incomplete, and, I fear, politically-biased report, The American Legion and the Department of Homeland Security share many common and crucial interests, such as the Citizen Corps and disaster preparedness. Since you are a graduate of New Mexico Girls State, I trust that you are very familiar with The American Legion. I would be happy to meet with you at a time of mutual convenience to discuss issues such as border security and the war on terrorism. I think it is important for all of us to remember that Americans are not the enemy. The terrorists are….

From AceHQ and MM:

The report, “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment”, was made available April 7 and then posted by the Liberty Papers.

DHS tends to paint with a rather broad brush. From pages 3 and 4:

Rightwing extremists are harnessing this historical election as a recruitment tool. Many rightwing extremists are antagonistic toward the new presidential administration and its perceived stance on a range of issues, including immigration and citizenship, the expansion of social programs to minorities, and restrictions on firearms ownership and use. Rightwing extremists are increasingly galvanized by these concerns and leverage them as drivers for recruitment. From the 2008 election timeframe to the present, rightwing extremists have capitalized on related racial and political prejudices in expanded propaganda campaigns, thereby reaching out to a wider audience of potential sympathizers.

Try to attend a Tea Party tomorrow, the more Free Expression the better, the sooner the better. All politics ARE ultimately local and the pols will remember they need to be re elected when they see their constituents speaking out against out of control spending…our Constitution protects ALL of our free expression not just ACORN, despite how the new Administration seems to want to reframe us..

Remember the Alinsky method, pick a target, frame it, freeze it. We and our freedom seem to be the target, Guess we are easier to demonize than terrorists for these JUST WORDS tools….

Where are the headbangers? get out to a tea party! where are the. peeps I grew up with in the 80s? Get out to a tea party, Be counted FOR something before you are just a number to the Tax Man and the Acorn nuts both….bring your Boom Box to the Tea Party and get your FREEDOM GROOVE ON!!!!

You know what we need? We need a Jeff Foxworthy-esque video of “You Might Be a Right Wing Radical if”…if you believe in freedom of speech, if you go to Church on Sunday and don’t curse in the sermon, if you believe in the Second Amendment, if you support capitalism, .the possibilities are endless…

what a bunch of maroons we have in DC..scary maroons….in the primaries this was the Race Card they played against fellow Democrats, now it is the Radical Card being played against any American AUDACIOUS enough to freely express their views, sadly now the tools who called us racist and are now calling us radicals actually have jobs in this Administration and apparently no adults who have read and support our Constitution are around to restrain their Alinksy techniques..

Via Instapundit :0)

AL.com:

Tax Day Tea Party is planned in Huntsville from noon to 1 p.m. on April 15.

The event, part of a national movement, will be held downtown in the vacant parking lot, Lot K, across from the U.S. Post Office on Clinton Avenue.

“The goal is to get the message across to our leaders in (Washington) D.C. that we don’t want to be overtaxed or these porkulus bills,” said Glenda Neill, president of the Madison Republican Women’s Club during its Wednesday lunch meeting at the Madison Radisson. “Right now tea parties are planned in 150 cities across the country. Three are planned in Alabama – in Huntsville, Montgomery and Mobile.”

According to the Web site www.taxdayteaparty.com, Santelli’s comments sparked a grass roots effort by Smart Girl Politics, Top Conservatives on Twitter, the DontGo Movement and many other online groups and coalitions.
