Return of the Tea Party

Obama has made it clear that he will keep pushing his “fundamental transformation” of America into a bankrupt authoritarian dump until someone stops him. Sooner or later, he was bound to overreach. The despicable exploitation of Sandy Hook as a pretext to attack our indispensible right of self-defense crossed a line. Finally, the giant is waking up again:

Pro-gun activists held “high noon” rallies across the United States on Saturday to defend the right to own firearms that they say is being threatened by President Barack Obama’s gun-control proposals.

Turnouts were big even in statist strongholds.

In Connecticut, a rally for gun rights drew about 1,000 people at the state Capitol, where lawmakers have reacted to the Newtown shooting with proposals to tighten gun-control rules, including limiting access to assault weapons [sic] and high-capacity magazines.

In Denver,

Sporting a shirt that read, “Girls with guns,” 31-year-old Jennifer Burk said, “My parents didn’t raise a victim and the government shouldn’t try and make me one.”

In New York, land of fascistic gun-grabbers Andrew Cuomo and Michael Bloomberg, an impressive 2,000 turned out.

See Nice Deb for videos from across the country.

Assuming this is only the beginning of the resistance, America might survive Hope & Change with the liberties that define it intact after all.

    Oregon also had a fantastic turnout. Some believe there were almost 3,000 in attandance. We are an open carry state so there were many long guns proudly displayed. We have the pictures to prove it. :) http://www.northwestfirearms.com/general-firearm-discussion/117582-rally-salem-2.html#post772916

    I keep thinking that the left…drunk with power, and feeling like they can now impose anything they want on America…has really stepped in it this time.

    You may lull people with tax talk, you might sway them with entitlement hand-outs, you could fool them with health care…but firearms are almost genetically encoded into our DNA. The Statists are going to get a push-back like they never imagined.

    …from our cold, dead fingers!

    Dave, I love the slumbering giant allusion—very patient and slow to anger, but when enough is enough… look out.

    It has been my experience the people with conservative politics are very measured and informed, and open to debate. Most liberals I’ve encountered become hysterical—voice gets louder and rises in pitch—merely at the mention of a debate topic. Naturally, the debate never begins because the liberal starts screeching talking points. If someone will at least debate a subject, one can usually find common ground. But with leftists, “compromise” means getting their way, period.

    How is it ‘reasonable’ for a person to be expected to show Government ID and submit to a background check to purchase a gun;
    But ‘unreasonable’ to expect simple ID to VOTE?

  • Jodie

    It’s a noble and gallant effort for sure, but I still say that no one is going to stop Obama. I believe that the Clinton’s may take over sooner or later, but that they will be even worse than Obama – AND they will try to make us worship him after he’s gone.

    I think people have forgotten about the oath so many have sworn to uphold the constitution. Those who are breaking that oath are few, we are many! The soldiers in the military? Sons, daughters, fathers, mothers, brothers, and sisters of those who these tyrants want to impose their will upon. The same goes for law enforcement. They may steal elections and break the economy but in the end this country belongs to us and we are many. This is the line in the sand that WILL NOT be crossed. Liberal scum take warning.

    Where were you guys last November???

    Where were you guys last November???

    They were the ones saying….
    Are you serious ?
    Another RINO ?
    Helllooooo, Romneycare anyone ?
    And the one who lost to McLame ?

  • Ghost of FA Hayek

    And who also was quoted by the Boston Herald saying…..

    “I don’t want special interest groups making this their campaign,” he said then. “I don’t want their money. I don’t want their help. This is my race.” Romney would be a likely recipient of contributions and support from an array of national servative groups long aligned against Kennedy, the Senate’s leading liberal voice.

    But the GOP nominee said he will take stands that put him at odds with some traditional ultra-conservative groups, and cited his support for the assault rifle ban and the Brady gun control law.

    “That’s not going to make me the hero of the NRA (National Rifle Association),” he said. “I don’t line up with a lot of special interest groups.”

    Well, as far as I can see Romney and the whole appeaser/McCain arm of the Repubs is as dead as the Whig party now.

    It’s time for conservatives to come back and take control if possible. However, the way this country has lurched to the left, it may NOT be. (Jodie has a point, and if Obama is operating with a power that has nothing to do with politics, then we are indeed cooked.)

  • Dr. 9

    This was great to see but, where was the Tea Party (before) the election when they were needed?

  • MaryJane

    TO Tax Slave and Dr. 9,
    Remarks about where was the Tea Party in November? just shows you “Tax Slave” and Dr. 9, haven’t been involved with the Tea Party until now? That’s the problem with MOST Americans they didn’t stand with the Tea Party throughout Obama/Pelosi/Reid over-reach, freedom stealing over taxing over regulations, $4.00/gallon of gas. They jumped on the bandwagon with the Main Stream Media, and helped try to marginalize us. Hiding and cowering; letting the TP activists do all the heavy lifting. The TP is alive and well and never stopped fighting. Did you even seek out a TP in your area to help or even donate some $$. ? We need help, not people quick to criticize we have plenty of that already. I suggest you get some testicular fortitude before it’s too late, find a TP in your area and HELP.

  • Tax Slave

    McCain? Romney? I ain’t no RINO like them, but what was I supposed to do, go independent? Vote for a writ-in?

    So, you think for the purity of our ideology, it’s better to let O’Bama irreparably destroy this country rather than elect a RINO? By the time the GOP (or whatever truly conservative party that replaces it) gets another Reagan, the damage will be irreversible. It probably is already.

    And MaryJane, I live in Kalifornia. We was too busy fighting Prop. 30 with almost no help from the TP. The last time TP-types held sway out here, their champion Ahnold turned RINO almost immediately, but even he was better than the alternative, Gov. Moonbat

  • MaryJane

    I didn’t say vote 3rd party. The people who voted 3rd party simply can’t do simple mathematics–while there may come a time when 3rd party will overcome the Socialist Party (Democrat) that time is not now.

    Furthermore, even with the 3rd party votes Romney still would not have won. People sat home again. So now Heil Obama or as Michele Obama said recently “hail Obama” funny how the MSM didn’t expose that.

    Re Romneycare–it was instituted at State level; where it should have been–none of my business unless I live in Massachusetts, which I don’t. California is AKA; the Lost Coast to us easterners. However that being said; New Jersey with the Big RINO Christie is the West Coast’s cat meow? seriously? Watch Iowa turn out in droves for this big RINO. One’s as bad as another. You have to take control of your local politics first through a New Republican Party, because the majority of the Republicans are still asleep, but still vote, but won’t vote for a 3rd party. We’re doing it here. The Democrat party is hopeless–they are completely Socialist now.

    I highly doubt that the TP didn’t help you with Prop 30–so stop bashing them, learn lesson #1 the Democrats stand together–while the Republicans form a firing line shaped in a circle and shoot each other, we don’t need to help the left vilify us or our efforts. What you are saying is what I’m saying; we need more ACTIVE activists and/or more $$$. But $4.00/ gallon of gas and super high taxes is all in BHO/Soros/Jarrett plan to keep the masses oppressed and unable to fight back.

  • Jotter

    Republicans didn’t want any part of the Tea Party and still don’t. Why should they have voted? GOP didn’t represent them. Neither did the Dem’s. That doesn’t mean they should not speak out on individual issues.
