Las Vegas Tea Party, August 31, 2009, Tea Party Express, First Amendment Rights, US Constitution, Citizen journalism, Video
I have never gotten so much satisfaction assembling an article as I did producing this one. This article is the culmination of efforts of concerned Americans across this country and certainly those that participate on this blog. A special thanks goes to commenter JoyceAZ, who cared enough about this country to travel to the Las Vegas Tea Party, take photos and write a report. Thank God that she did. The story was barely touched by the local media in Las Vegas and the Main Stream media nationwide.
“CW, We arrived at the park 8:45am. This area was large. The parking lot filled up by 10:30. People were coming and going for 2-3 hrs. People were very warm and friendly. WE WERE UNITED. The people were from Oregon, California, Nevada, Arizona, California, Colorado, Delaware, Idaho…… (licenses plates that we noticed).
All day long people gave each other the thumbs up. We The People are UNITED IN OUR MARCH TO WAKE UP THE GOVERNMENT.
We just want to be heard. Our Freedoms are being tread on. OUR FLAGS SAY: Don’t Tread On Me. We will not be UNHEARD.
We did not see any riots. No screaming, yelling or fighting. We did not see any opposition,….. ACORN, SEIU, or other pro-Obama voices.
Several cars stopped and ask us what was happening,…. as they had not heard of this project on the local tv channels. I told them that it was 98% created thru the internet and twitter and such. The NEWS MEDIA is DEAD! Even those would stop and go sign up for information on OUR PROJECT.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal quoted that the count was 800-900. I truly feel is was much larger than that. The parking lot was filled at all times….. people would be waiting for a parking spot. People arriving faster than leaving.
I don’t think I would be exaggerating to say it was closer to 1500+. I am sending a few articles from the Las Vegas Review-Journal. They have some interesting articles about dirty harry. He is not very popular at this time.
I hope that the actions of JoyceAZ were as inspiring to you as they are to me and will inspire more people to take action. We cannot depend on the modern day media to do so.
I sang the song that plays in the video when I was young.
It moved me deeply then and even more now.
