March 27, 2010

Here are some pictures we shot earlier Friday in Searchlight, Nevada. Searchlight is the home town of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and is the kickoff rally point of the newest Tea Party Express bus tour starting Saturday March 27th.

    I thought after Bush 43 was out of office I could resume being proud of my country. You tea baggers have given new meaning to the word shame. You make the United States look aweful. Keep up the good work T bags.

    Hi all tea partiers! Wish we could be there with you to stand up for American and our freedoms. We love Sarah Palin and respect her for being HONEST, standing up for the unborn and having the courage to tell it like it is! She is my ideal of what a woman and a real American should be! God bless you all! November is not that far away and then we will have a CHANGE YOU CAN BELIEVE IN!!!

  4. Liberal on March 27, 2010 at 2:44 pm

    What a bunch of losers you are.

  5. Liberal on March 27, 2010 at 4:58 pm

    You people are pathetic morons.

  6. Over taxed American Citizen on March 27, 2010 at 5:31 pm

    Wish I could be there, but I am working to pay all the taxes inflicted on my family by those you are protesting. We are there in spirit and pray you all build a great network of connections.
    Let’s keep up the momentum not just till November but FOREVER! Drive these liberal communists, out of our political system, schools, government, unions anywhere they have rooted in to rot the minds of the young and take away their freedoms & liberty without them even aware of it.
    I am so proud of all of you that have taken the time to speak out, shout from the mountain tops of the outrageous corruption of these political elitists that are attempting to dystroy this free country.
    I am proud to support independent, freedom loving Americans any way I can and be apart of this when I can. Oh, Palin 2012 I pray!! ( without McCain)

  7. Willa Jean on March 27, 2010 at 6:35 pm

    Great pictures. I wanted to be there too. I am so proud of all of you!

  8. John Martinez on March 27, 2010 at 6:47 pm

    Oh berserker59, Enough, if you are not proud then leave the country. Join the french foreign legion or go to Canada or something. If not we will reload and target you at the polls. Go TEA PARTY PATRIOTS! GO!

  9. Archeryl on March 27, 2010 at 6:52 pm

    Dear Liberal,

    If the other side wants to call me a Tea Bagger, so be it. Truly, I will wear the honor proudly. It is obvious that the progressive liberals are afraid that we are winning, or they wouldn’t be calling us names.

    We are not afraid of the name calling and the smears.

    We will prevail by restoring common sense and fiscal responsibility to this great country.

    Thanks to all of you who are participating in this truly grass roots movement.

    Sincerely,
    A Tea Bagger in Scottsdale, AZ

    I have taught school for 30 yrs. And I am not surprised at the state of the country. I warned people 20 yrs ago. They are out gunned, so to win, destroy the educational system of a country, infiltrate by going to their schools, destroy their family values. Wreck them financially and take their planes and kill them all. Send our troops out of our country. We our defendless now. And no one wants to fight. I fear for my nephews, I will fight and die, the history books will write of a country that thought they could not be taken down. Now the gravel and beg. Elect me for President and I will win. Thank you, I do not even know if we will put up a fight. I will.

  11. Adele on March 27, 2010 at 9:25 pm

    I am very proud of all the teaparty goers. With all that is going on, you give me hope. I wish i could be there with you but unfortunately I am unemployed and struggling to make it. I praise you for being out there and to help all of us to live in a freedom society and not a communist one. Go tea party.

  12. Erica on March 27, 2010 at 10:19 pm

    I love it! The energy in Searchlight was amazing today. Thank you to everyone who showed their love and support for the United States of America!

    To berserker59… liberals are such whiners. They whine when a Republican is in the Oval Office, they whine when a Democrat is. They love to criticize and bash (witness 8 years of attacking Bush every day of his presidency), and now, rather than look behind the progressives’ curtain of American rights being ripped away (as the horrific bribery and backroom deals ensued to buy off votes and permit the ramrodding of the flawed, heavily government-mandated ObamaCare bill was last week), they childishly blame those who exercise their 1st Amendment rights rather than looking at the socialist ideology that brought us to this point.

    When/if those constitutional rights are ripped away, berserker59 will be one of the first to frantically blame conservatives, because being intelligent and honest and examining the audacious Democrat thug machine we’ve witnessed for more than a year is just too painful. However, many Democrats are now speaking out against Obama’s agenda… the smart ones are. The sheep aren’t. Not yet.

    berserker59, no worries, you silly little statist whiner – conservatives and tea party participants will defend YOUR constitutional rights as an American as well. These tea parties are grassroots efforts to do just that. Liberals are too brainwashed by the Obama left-wing media, too enamored with welfare entitlements from the “entitlement fairy” and drinking the Obama Kool-aid of “hope and change” to do much more than whine.

    Glad you folks had a great time! I’m looking forward to the stop in Little Rock on April 3!

    “Enough, if you are not proud then leave the country. Join the french foreign legion or go to Canada or something. If not we will reload and target you at the polls. Go TEA PARTY PATRIOTS! GO!”
    That’s a pretty convincing argument. Maybe you should leave, and I’ll explain why. You are rallying and protesting in favor of a system that denies Americans health care. Like one of the posters said above, she loves Sarah Palin because she tells it like it is and protects the unborn, which logically means she supports children’s health. The system you defend denies babies medical coverage because of pre-existing condition. You support a system that denies medical coverage to a 6 month old baby. Once they cut the umbelical chord, fuck em.
    Another reason you dumbasses should leave the country is because the rock stars of your movement use the same government institutions you loath. Sarah Palin grandson is benefiting from government provided care. Oh, and she also used Big Government Canada’s fantastic health care system. Michelle Bachmann, who said the other day that the economy was 100% privatized in 2008 and is now 51% goverment, has received over 250,000 dollars in government subsidies, 50,000 in 2008, the year the economy was 100% privatized, according to your own welfare queen.
    But the list is just getting started tea baggers. From the mid 90′s until today John Boner’s district has received well over 400 million dollars in farm subsidies from the government. Glad to see you red staters using government provided bootstraps.
    One of the leaders of your movement, Michael Vanderboegh, who has been encouraging you sheep to break windows of democratic lawmakers who support health care reform, yep, he gets his income from government disability checks.
    There are countless ironies in your movement, all of which you are to ignorant to recognize. Feel free to keep us entertained though. Your signs are great. “Get a brain morans,” “Government hands off Medicare,” Respect are country, speak English.”
    As far as your reloading bullshit, bring it on. Remember when you lemmings were told by right wing radio, fox news and Rush to disrupt the town hall meeetings and one of your goons got beat down by a whiny liberal. Remember after he was begging for a handout because he didn’t have health care. That scene encapsulates your entire movement.

    I spent the day in Searchlight! I have never been more proud. It was an amazing day to spend with so very many Patriotic, God Loving Americans who are working so very hard to spread the word and to Take Back Our Country. The sight, and the feel of us all standing tall and proud brought tears to my on many occasions. I love my Country & I love my Constitution. Thank You Tea Party Patriots for taking a stand to let us be heard & heard in the masses! God Bless America.

  19. berserker59 on March 28, 2010 at 7:11 pm

    Rebecca, Im happy for you. I felt the same way in Los Angeles in 2006. Over a million people took to the streets to demand rights for undocumented workers. I had the same feeling of empowerment demonstrating against the invasion of Iraq, along with millions from around the world. Relative to the above, your movement is insignificant. It boggles the mind that your movement would complain about the coverage you receive, but don’t deserve. Seriously, NRP reports positively on your every move, while the anti-invasion protests were ignored by public radio.

  20. Kathy8 on March 28, 2010 at 7:51 pm

    berserker59, I’m glad for you in your own little left wing world. My husband and I joined 1.7 million people in Washington on Sept 12 last year. That crowd, of course, was underestimated by the mainstream media, but the University of Indiana was able to verify the count through its technological analysis of photographs and videos of the event. It was wery exhiliarating to be surrounded by peaceful, patriotic people who were finally standing up and being counted. We’re not going to shut up and sit down!

  21. John Martinez on March 28, 2010 at 9:16 pm

    F-berserker59, You started it with your “I thought once 43 was gone I could start being proud of my country again” comment. You liberals always start the nasty talk first and then you wonder why we come back on you and target you in our cross+hairs. Kathy8 said it best “We’re not going to shut up and sit down”. I read your long speech above(obama like yawning) now you shut up and sit down. Enough!

  22. berserker59 on March 28, 2010 at 11:05 pm

    Kathy, you said ,”University of Indiana was able to verify the count through its technological analysis of photographs and videos of the event”

    Where does the University of Indiana get there funding?

  23. berserker59 on March 29, 2010 at 12:13 am

    Stand down little boy.

  24. Idahohoho on March 29, 2010 at 1:42 am

    Thank you, berserker59!
    Question for the teabagger: What freedoms have you lost? No one has been able to answer that for me. Also, does your pro-life philosophy extend beyond the fetus? If you hate the government so much, why are so many of your events on public property? How small do you want the government to be? Why do so many of you wrap your jelly rolls in the American Flag? Just curious, I haven’t heard any answers to these questions.

    I was at the Searchlight rally. It was my 6th Tea Party event, including the biggie in Wash. last Sept. Every one of them made me more proud to be a conservative and to be able to show my support for conservative ideas. Through the work of Tea Party supporters we will take back our country. If the liberals would only read history they would see that what they advocate has never worked. And if those on the fence would wake up and smell the corruption in Washington they would join our movement.

    berserker59: were Norse warriors who are reported in the Old Norse literature to have fought in a nearly uncontrollable, trance-like fury, a characteristic which later gave rise to the English word berserk.

    Ber·serk (br-sûrk, -zûrk, b-) adj.
    1. Destructively or frenetically violent: a berserk worker who started smashing all the windows.
    2. Mentally or emotionally upset; deranged: berserk with grief.
    3. Informal Unrestrained, as with enthusiasm or appetite; wild: berserk over chocolates.
    n.
    1. One that is violent, upset, or unrestrained.
    2. A berserker.

    Maybe the 59 designates I.Q.

    What freedoms and liberties have been taken from you? If you mean the Patriot Act, that was GW Bush’s doing. So, what are you talking about?
