Video and Pics of 912 Tea Party Protest in DC

Posted on Mon 09/14/2009 by


My husband joined the NEPA Tea Party on one of two buses chartered for Washington DC. He invited some friends from work, and two of them went along as well, at $30 a head (which came out of our own wallets, BTW). The buses arrived at the Wyoming Valley Mall in Wilkes-Barre a little after 3:30am Saturday morning. Our local patriots spent the next six hours traveling south to join other real Americans from across the country in petitioning the government for a redress of grievances.

Dan Amato and Ruth Miller took great videos and panorama shots of the crowd, which can be found at Diggers Realm.

Obanocchio - on a stick

Tea Partiers are a clever lot. Some signs made a big statement without even having any words – like this Obanocchio picture.

Obama FAIL

Other signs were obviously time-consuming works of great passion.

Some of my personal faves:

  • Welcome to 1984
  • The 10th Amendment
  • Keep the Tea, Dump Congress
  • I’m Allergic to Kool-Aid
  • Can You Hear Us Now?
  • Socialism Sucks
  • I Didn’t Vote for the Socialist
  • Member of the Mob and Proud of it
