'Tea Party' Organizers Plan Anti-'Obamacare' Rallies Across the Country

The same groups who made the "tax tea parties" possible in April are planning anti-Obamacare rallies across the country Saturday in all 435 congressional districts.

If Democratic lawmakers thought all the furor over President Obama's health care plan expressed this month at town hall meetings was dying down, they might be in for a surprise Saturday.

That's when citizens are planning anti-"Obamacare" rallies across the country Saturday in all 435 congressional districts.

And their message is clear: We will not stand for socialized, government-controlled health care.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ooh, I can't wait! I love to protest against things that aren't even on the table, just for fun! And I'll be bringing several homemade signs with swastikas on them and pictures of Obama with a little hitler mustache to pass around, if any like-minded citizens care to join me. This is going to be the best protest EVER! Thank god we have Fox News around to cover and unofficially promote this important non-event.

One tea bagger might be unable to join due to being charged with aggravated assault.

Quote:
The Republican Party has a huge problem on their hands. They are quickly being taken over by the most extreme, paranoid, fringe elements in our society and this case is just another glaring example of the path they are on:

BOISE, Idaho " An Idaho Republican Party leader who helped oust the state GOP chairman in 2008 faces charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after an altercation escalated while he photographed a home with a delinquent mortgage.

Challis McAffee, 33, the GOP chairman from the Boise suburb of Garden City and one of 231 voting members of the Idaho Republican Central Committee, was in Ada County jail after being accused of pointing a gun at the homeowner.

McAffee, a backer of libertarian-leaning former GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul and an activist in this year's anti-big-government "Tea Party" protests, helped organize Paul backers who aligned at last June's Idaho State Republican Convention in Sandpoint with other foes of then-state GOP Chairman Kirk Sullivan. Sullivan was voted from office in favor of Norm Semanko.

According to police in the Boise suburb of Meridian, resident Robert Lutes called officers just before 5:30 p.m. Tuesday to report McAffee had pointed a .357 Magnum handgun at him during a verbal confrontation. McAffee acknowledged he pointed the gun at Lutes, according to the police account.

"I'm unarmed, I'm an old man," Lutes, 51, told The Associated Press on Thursday. "I'm trying to find out why he's taking pictures of my house. I said, 'Knock on my door, let me know what you want.' Then, I think he's reaching for his business card and he pulls out a concealed weapon and I think he's going to blow my head off." Read on...

A group calling itself Idahoans for Liberty is trying to raise bond money for McAffee, but their version doesn't line up with the police account.

read the article. the guy that he pulled on called himself an old guy.

however, in any event the genius in the picture above is far younger than 51.

btw, i'm 52 and don't consider myself an old dude, either. Smile

Planner cancels Leaded Tea Party picnic

Sept. 5 event will not be held despite permit being issued

CHAD SMITH


Publication Date: 08/22/09
A Ponte Vedra businessman announced Friday that he canceled his so-called Leaded Tea Party picnic to which attendees were encouraged to bring their firearms to shoot on a gun range while their children rode horses, and their families were entertained by a live band.

Richard Willich, the president of medical billing company MDI Holdings Inc., who was recently named the Florida chairman of the conservative organization Americans for Prosperity, announced in a news release that the "liberty event" was canceled because of "government opposition, personal attacks ... from the left and insurance companies refusing to insure the event because of negative publicity."

St. Johns County officials last week ordered the gun range on the company's property off Nocatee Parkway shut down because the company didn't have the proper permit.

Willich said the property is used by MDI's security officers for training.

He applied for a temporary permit for the range that would allow guns to be fired Sept. 5, the scheduled date of the event. The county granted it Thursday.

County spokeswoman Karen Pan said his staff was cooperative during the process.

"From our perspective, we were very happy to issue the permit," Pan said. "It brought him into compliance for what he wanted to do with the land."

Addressing the accusation of "government opposition," she said, "Everything was clear on our end. ... Realistically, he had the government approval."

But, the release stated, the plans for the event had "gone astray."

"The focus shifted from the liberty event to an attack on Richard Willich," it stated. "Due to misrepresentation, on websites, in the media, and by certain fringe groups, the event has been cancelled."

The Florida Times-Union reported earlier this week that Willich felt the Second Amendment afforded him the right to hold the event.

"It has always been my understanding that we have the right to assemble," the newspaper quoted him as saying. "We have the right of free speech, the right to carry guns. I don't know when or how the local county code person can say I don't have those rights. I don't like it at all."

A spokeswoman for MDI did not return telephone messages left for further comment.

@BillRM,
Perhaps he felt old when that guy pulled a gun in his face. Not really the point.

Herger praised the man’s attitude.

“Amen, God bless you,” Herger said with a broad smile. “There is a great American.”

For the life of me I don't see what is so bad (or socialist) about giving people the option to choose between a government issued insurance and a private one. But in any case, like DTOM said, is this (proud right wing terrorist being a good American) direction and face the republicans want to go?
