Tea Party Counterprotest Fizzles in Napa


The maniacal racist demagogues of the Congressional Black Caucus aren’t the only enemies the Tea Party has to contend with. Last Saturday the Green Party declared its own war in northern California. Zombie reports:

The catalyst that triggered this political firefight was the arrival in Napa of the Tea Party Express buses; Saturday, August 27 was the day the media-savvy group kicked off its coast-to-coast Reclaiming America Tour, culminating on September 12 in Tampa, Florida, at the CNN/Tea Party Express Debate between various presidential primary candidates.

Grassroots Tea Party groups from the region — the Wine Country, the North Bay, and nearby — converged on the Napa County Fairgrounds for a brief two-hour visit by the Tea Party Express buses and their accompanying CNN cameras.

But the Green Party simply could not let this stand. Word went out across the land that the Greens would be waiting with a “massive anti-tea party rally.”

Here’s what the “massive anti-tea party rally” looked like half an hour after it was scheduled to begin:

Most of the few dozen moonbats who turned out appeared more interested in imposing socialism directly in the time-honored Leninist fashion rather than through environmental hogwash. Others didn’t seem capable of formulating any coherent point of view beyond sputtering hatred of the freedom and decency represented by the Tea Party:

There was a separate counterprotest consisting of 10–20 union thugs. The Tea Party crowd numbered a good 2,000. Typically, a local media account grossly distorted the numbers, claiming there were 200 moonbats and only 600 patriots. But at least the mendacious report provided this gem of a photo:

Given what clowns they are, leftists are going to need more than the media on their side to hold down the Tea Party.
