My Friend's observations of the TEA Party Rally, Guest Blogger Wade

Just got back from a “HEATED” Tax Day Tea Party Rally in Madison!

by Wade Anderson on Saturday, April 16, 2011 at 9:31pm
 As soon as I got through the Union Anti-Walker protesters and found an open spot to watch the rally, I kept hearing someone yelling “F… You” repeatedly. I looked to my left and saw some big dude in his late 40’s screaming at this high school kid that was there to support the Tea Party! Obviously I went over and shut the IDIOT up, and we quickly came to the agreement that he’d be better off protesting somewhere else! (God my blood’s boiling again just writing this!) About 20 min later one of “Chicago’s Finest” (off duty) started going off on some lady to my right for taking his picture! So I just couldn’t help myself… I decided to start taking his picture to see if he wanted to try that shit with me! He turned to me and started saying Sara Palin’s a “WHORE” repeatedly. I couldn’t believe it, there were families right behind me with kids as young as 6-7! Again… I had to have the same talk with him as I did with the last IDIOT! WE came to the conclusion that it’d be in his best interest if he went somewhere else too!

It’s obvious they were there to pick a fight with someone, at least the COP was… but I guess he didn’t like who called hi bluff! What kind of people do that? They stoop so low to do all of this right next to a bunch of kids, HELL… one of em was SCREAMING at a kid!

The thing that really got me was this… Just after the rally was breaking up, this lady walks by with her two kids who were about 4 and 6 walked past me. The FOUR year old boy says… mommy… does everyone HATE Mr. Walker??? She said… No honey… he has some supporters. At first I was impressed at how much empathy was in her voice as she said it, but then a bit disturbed that she would be exposing them to all of this at such a young age.

C’Mon people… I just gave the last HALF of my LIFE defending our country so that “EVERYONE” here has the right to protest without the threat of VOILENCE, don’t make me spend the NEXT half defending US from OURSELVES!

WAY TO GOOOOO... JACK ASS!!! I'm sure mom's proud!
“Chicago’s Finest”


  1. I couldn't go - were the Tea Party supporters intermingled with the union protesters, or were they in separate areas on the Capitol grounds? Any estimates on the crowd size - I heard 6500 on the news but they didn't distinguish between the two groups.

    BTW, downtown, great pic on your header!

  2. Thanx Unplugged. It was co-mingled for a while as we were waiting for the speakers to begin, then when we got started most of the Protesters went to the periphery. They were using bell, and those stupid plastic horns and other assorted noise-makers. One guy worked his way up to the front of the crowd and tried to shout down the speakers, he was immediately mobbed with cameras, and then eventually some people sent their signs to the front and they blocked the dude with signs.. It was pretty funny. I did hear a report one protester got a little carried away and the cops took him away into custody. (Maybe it was Miles Kerstin again :). Towards the end when Sarah was speaking they started to try and infiltrate somewhat.. but she never lost her poise..and even directed a few comments their way. Racine BTW was very well represented. 2 guys from Union Grove, (One proposed on stage to his fiancee), and Nancy spoke extremely well! four people from Racine TEA were on Stage, (Pam and I were representing LiberTEA Racine.) It was was snowy...I have a cold now..but it was worth it!

  3. So when the TEA party folks bring their young kids, it's okay, but when a union supporter brings her young kids, it's disturbing?

    What gives?

  4. The blonde lady is Ann Althouse and she blogged about the jerk with the CPD hat.

  7. I've never seen a tea partier being uncivil while they had their children present. Come to think of it I never saw a tea partier being uncivil!
