Not so odd really...
Yeah... not so much. Just a bunch of fools shaking their fist at socialism while the other hand is wide open taking their own government handout all while crying about higher taxes despite 95% of them having had their taxes reduced this year. Just every day folks who have a transparent agenda...Just everyday people voicing their disdain for big government.
LOL! Good thing they had some guys pulling security at the Sacramento event.
I don't think most of them even genuinely believe most of the shit they say..its just power in numbers..keep bitching and you will get some attention etcSOmethings weird here. These T-people look very mean. Way to mean just because of taxes and playing the Obama blame game. They look more like people that never got laid, were called stupid by their parents all their life, and got took in one of those get rich scams where u send some guy $5000 in Africa and he promises to send u back twice that. These people are mad, but it goes much deeper than the election of Obama. They probably felt this way starting with the GW Bush era, but calling GW a commie would have been unpatriotic. They have no problem calling Obama a commie. Now THAT is the question to ask them, because Obama has not degraded their life one bit from previous presidents. Nor has Pelosi for that matter. All these people need serious couch time
In the past they have voted like idiots, gotten what they deserved, and not cannot accept THEY themselves are their own worst enemy.
It seems to me like the Tea Partiers are springing up all over the place. Why don't you just go to a Congressional town hall or a rally and ask them yourself.hey have no problem calling Obama a commie. Now THAT is the question to ask them...
Is this racist viewpoint that you hold really all that funny?
White NBC Reporter Confronts Black Man at Tea Party Rally: 'Have You Ever Felt Uncomfortable?'

“There aren't a lot of African-American men at these events,” NBC News reporter Kelly O'Donnell, a white woman, told Darryl Postell, a black man at a Tea Party rally held Thursday in Washington, DC, pressing him, in an exchange she chose to include in her NBC Nightly News story, to address her prejudiced assumptions: “Have you ever felt uncomfortable?”
Postell rejected her loaded premise that race must divide Americans: “No, no, these are my people, Americans.”
O'Donnell's story noted “skepticism over how the Tea Party is judged and labeled,” letting an attendee assert: “We're not racists, we're not any of the above that people claim us to be. We're ordinary citizens that love our country, and we're fighting for it.”
Over on ABC, Jonathan Karl highlighted how “many of them blamed us, the news media.” A woman demanded: “We want honesty from you. We want fair time from you. We want you, the media, to represent all the people, not just a certain portion of the people.”

Mexicans are busy building things. Asians are working in offices. Africans are breaking into the cars of the teabaggers.
looks like a lot less people attended the Sacramento Tea Party event this year than last.
give me 10x. Love them!I want that mission accomplished poster!
Bigots, morons, and racists because a woman holds up a sign against gay marriage and one against Democratic party leaders?
Exactly. Sure, there are idiots who attend these tea bag protests, but every group has them (need I remind people of the "Obama will buy my gas!" lady?). The mainstream media (and many posters here, it would seem), rather than focusing on the message, tries to paint all of these guys as backwoods, racist hicks.The only ones I have met are damn mad about the fiscal irresponsibility of government first and foremost, but you might just meet someone who expresses additional opinions.. unlike anyone you might encounter in forums such as this one.
