Supporters of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid staged a counter-protest today in Searchlight, Nevada, the Senator’s hometown. Reid supporters gathered just down the road from the launching point of the Tea Party Express tour, and when Breitbart happened upon them, he was met with threats of violence. At least one protester threw an egg at Brietbart, missing him. Eggs were also thrown at the Tea Party Express bus.
To add insult to insult, Reid supporters called the police to report that Breitbart had provoked an incident.
Stay tuned for images – we will be uploading them as soon as they are available.
UPDATE: Below is an image of the gentleman who, in his ardent support of his beloved Senator Reid, threatened to behave in a way which would land him in jail if Andrew Breitbart was not removed from the area.
The AP calls this “hospitality”. Not where we come from.
