Last week we reported how the Tea Party folks were gonna be organizing Anti-Immigrant rallies in 50 cities around the country. The rhetoric being used was pretty inflammatory and it was noted that people should be aware of attacks…
Quite naturally there were counterprotests, but what was interesting is to see how the Tea Baggers have been aggressive in confronting counterprotests… This video spells it out, although the Tea Party folks have tried to flip the script and say they were the ones assaulted.
What needs to be noted is in most marches unless you are press you stay on your side of the street or in the area designated for your protest. In almost every demonstration I’ve been to including the weekly ones that occur during our local farmer market each Saturday where Pro-Palestinian and Pro-Isreal folks hold simultaneous vigils and rallies.. They stay on opposite sides of the street and as instructed and later enforced by local police, one doesn’t roll off to the other side and start filming, holding up signs etc.. To do so is considered an antagonistic act.
When you view the video which was put out by the Tea Party people, you see what was clearly an act of provocation. This is just the beginning folks. Things are about to get ugly.
Update: someone sent me a copy of the anti-immigrant rally in Minneapolis.. Here these racist Tea Party folks get seriously punked.. pay close attention to the speaker at this ‘sparsely’ attended rally which was said to be ‘well attended’.. The speaker talks about the bigger problem of illegal immigrants..
