9/12 Taxpayer March on Washington, 2009.
Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor Rally, which takes place this weekend on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, promises to be a massively attended event.
But there is another event coming up in DC that - if it’s anything like last year’s march, should be equally impressive:
The 2nd Annual Taxpayer March On Washington:
Time: September 12, 2010 from 10am to 5pm
Location: The Washington Monument and US Capitol
Street: Constitution Avenue at 15th Street NW
City/Town: Washington, DC

This event will be organized by the same coalition that organized the original 9/12 March on Washington — including FreedomWorks, Tea Party Patriots, National Taxpayers Union, The Institute for Liberty and a host of other great free market groups from around the country.
We will be posting more details in this space as we put them together. Please check back here for updates!

Tea party groups have been under attack by unhinged lefties in recent weeks.
The President himself, perhaps set the tone, when he singled out Americans For Prosperity for public disparagement:
Now, Freedomworks is so besieged with death threats, they are having to move their office to a more secure location two blocks from the US Capital.
One of Washington’s principal supporters of the Tea Party movement, former GOP Majority Leader Dick Armey’s FreedomWorks, has been receiving death threats and profanity-laced phone calls as it gets involved in the fall elections. The number and intensity have reached such heights that the organization is leaving its downtown location near the FBI and moving to a high-security building near the U.S. Capitol.
“FreedomWorks and Dick Armey receive dozens of threatening and harassing calls and E-mails each day. Many imply violence and use of weapons,” spokesman Adam Brandon tells Whispers. “As we get closer to the election we expect the harassment to increase.”
He says that FreedomWorks will hire additional security, meaning less money for its election-eve, get-out-the-vote, or GOTV, campaign. “Unfortunately, we may have to use resources for security guards that we would rather use for GOTV,” he said.
