Yesterday, a few scores of concerned and confused American patriots protested the Bush taxation policies at the Alexandria Riverfront Amphitheater, earnestly believing, instead, that they were actually protesting against our new President (and a budget that has not yet been implemented).
Tea Party on the Red will be held Wednesday, April 15, from 5 to 7 p.m at the downtown amphitheatre in Alexandria.
The program starts at 5:30 p.m.
The activities include a presentation of colors by the National Guard, the Daughters of the American Revolution and Sons of the American Revolution, patriotic singing and throwing tea in protest into the river.
Guest speaker will be Clyde Holloway.
This is a bipartisan protest against high taxation.
1. FAIL: The National Guard didn’t show up.
3. FAIL: They couldn’t throw teabags into the Red River.
4. EPIC FAIL: Their surprise keynote speaker, Congressman Rodney Alexander, was booed by the crowd. PawPaw explains:
Rodney, that dummy, got up to speak and tried to defend pork. Rodney thinks that his job is to bring the pork back to his district. He even goes so far as to spell it PORC (Projects of Regional Concern), but the boos from the crowd should have told him that Pork by any other name doesn’t smell so sweet.
What was sweet was to watch Rodney get booed by a crowd that was predominately Republican. Granted, this was pitched as a bipartisan event, and I didn’t see any party politics at the event. But when Rodney stood to defend his porky ways, the crowd booed him. Hopefully he had an epiphany this afternoon.
