We did have one obvious infiltrator at the Kansas City Tea Party, a guy perched right in front of the KMBZ radio booth, was holding up an ignorant sign, and really, really wanted his picture taken, which is why I didn’t take it. I do have a photo of him horning in on another pic I was taking, but you can’t read his sign, so it’s not worth posting.
In retrospect, I should have taken his picture, and told him I’d do an extra special write-up about it. But dang, he wanted it so much, I just couldn’t do it.
This tea party crasher epically failed and got himself arrested:
A man dressed in all black and a hood or mask came to the side of the stage by the old county courthouse while a person spoke and held up a sign reading, “Prosperity = White Supremacy.”
The crowd didn’t fancy the man’s sign and cast a round of boos in his direction. Pretty soon, three Greensboro police officers escorted the man away from the protest.
According to arrest reports, Daniel Emerson Stainkemp, 22, of 1602 West End Place in Greensboro was charged with wearing a mask or hood on public property, resisting a public officer, carrying a sign larger than allowed by a local ordinance, and interfering with the protest.
Hope it was worth it.

Of course they did.
Republican Heretic was at the KC tea party, too, and he got some photos of our infiltrator.
He fooled no one, but it was a valiant effort.
