You’re invited to Sarah Palin’s tea party in Boston 4/14
Soooo, guess who is coming to YOUR town to claim the Boston Tea Party as the Tea Party Terrorists own? Yes, it’s Caribou Barbie, former VP candidate and faux patriot, busy yelling “Fire!” in the crowded theater of public discourse (complete with cross-hairs, I might add). It seems April 15, according to many Tea Party Terrorist websites, is Tea Party Tax Day (or is it Ten Kinds of Crazy Day?) and Palin’s appearance in Boston is on the last leg of some sort of terrorists’ bus tour. Well, she doesn’t scare this citizen and I doubt she scares you, dear reader, but her sojourn into the birthplace of this here nation sure calls for a strong non-violent response.
We’ve all read and heard the various reports in the past few days about incidents of violence aimed at health reform advocates, from bricks through windows, to death threats, to mysterious white powder in the mail. I don’t recall progressives acting in this manner after losing vote after vote during the Bush era. What is wrong with these people? Nothing perhaps that a few months or years in jail might cure. In any case, responding in a like manner would only encourage the Tea Party Terrorists. Better we should respond as some of our forebearers did during the real Boston Tea Party: with theater!
Watch for more on this here at Open Media and elsewhere, and please be sure to talk it up with your family and friends in Massachusetts. It’s important that, dare I say, outsiders don’t get away with coming into the Commonwealth and misappropriating our history and culture. Remember to mark your calendars for April 14, 11AM (place TBA): Tea Party Terrorists Day in Boston!
