Leawood Tea Party

pv29

This one was organized less than a week before the protest date…very spur of the moment, with very little advertising.  I thought I’d check it out after I dropped my daughter off for dance class, and was surprised to see a decent sized crowd of over 100 people. Again, lots of approving honks from the cars passing by. And this time, reporters from the local media were there.

The signs are getting more and more creative:

True story: This sign was made out of a semi-automatic rifle box:

Michelle Malkin has been doing a great job keeping track of upcoming tea parties, nationwide.

Overland Park KS Porkulus Protest

UPDATE:

See Michelle Malkin for coverage of the HUGE tea party in Cincinnati – 5000 people.

Interested in getting involved? Go to Nationwide Tax Day Tea Party for an April 15 protest near you.

UPDATE II:

See Moonbattery for more on that Cincinnati tea party, and the continuing media black out of conservative protests.

Newsbusters has more on that score:

Despite their lack of coverage, as Knoxnews.com revealed Sunday, these Tea Parties are springing up all over the country (image courtesy Geldpress):

Let’s count ’em: Cincinnati, Nebraska, Tampa, Lexington, Ridgefield, Conn., Raleigh, Orlando, D.C., Staten Island, Pasadena, Boston, Rochester, N.Y., Jacksonville, Minnesota, Cleveland, Columbus, Mo., Little Rock, Ark., Philadelphia, Kansas City, Harrisburg, Green Bay, Salt Lake City, Fullertown, Lafayette, Boise, Monterey, Maui, Yonkers, Utah, Tucson, Phoenix, Hoboken and Chicago, to name a few.

Did you know there have been that many? If you didn’t, don’t feel embarrassed for these have gone almost totally ignored.

For instance, with the exception of Fox News and CNN, no major television outlet has covered even one of these events except the original proposed by Santelli on February 19.

Compare that to how these networks practically fell all over themselves to report war protests after the public’s opinion changed concerning Iraq in late 2003.

As for print, Tea Parties have been completely ignored by the Washington Post, USA Today, the Boston Globe, the Los Angeles Times, the Miami Herald, and the San Francisco Chronicle.

  1. Hi Deb,

    First of all, thanks for the pictures and this blog.

    I thought I let you know that there is going to be a KC Tax Day Tea Protest on April 15th at Union Station from 6pm to 7:30. I am going to that one instead of the one at JCCC since I live closer to Union Station.

  3. I’m not sure the organizers would be willing to change plans at this point, but I agree…I was kinda bummed that there was going to be two tea parties, because crowd size is important. But it is possible to go to both of them…that’s what I plan on doing.

  4. Thanks Deb, for re-directing me here (I musta got lost) and for the answer. Can’t make both, have to work and then driving from Topeka to KC after work to make the JCCC one. Found out a few days ago they’re having one here in Topeka at the Post Office downtown I think but have made JCCC plans already. Don’t forget to let me know about the Moron Meet after. Thanks again lady.
