The Manassas Tea Party‘s Defend the Constitution Rally went off as scheduled Friday evening in downtown Manassas, Virginia. As usual, news coverage was spotty. Apparently, hundreds of well-behaved people rallying to defend their country from a government that refuses to be constrained by the Constitution does not merit much attention. Here is what I could find.
- To cover the rally in Manassas, ABC 7 News hunted up people opposed to the Tea Party, Tea Party Rallies in Manassas.
- On the plus side, the coverage at InsideNoVA.com did not try to be “balanced.” In Manassas Tea Party fills Harris Pavilion, JONATHAN HUNLEY just reported what he heard and saw.
- The Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance Blog provides a good description of the speakers and the order of the events in THE MANASSAS TEA PARTY.
- Potomac Tea Party Report links to the InsideNoVA.com article in Manassas Tea party event — 1500 protest federal health care mandate. This article contends that many more than were reported in the InsideNoVA.com article attended the event. Since I attended the rally, I can definitely say well more than 500 attended the event.
Some Related Oddball Nonsense
Liberal news media such as Blue Virginia and Kojo Nnamdi Show are still up to their usual mischief. While on the Kojo Nnamdi Show, Keith Fimian got a question suggesting that he is the Tea Party candidate (There is no such thing.), and he therefore is “too Conservative” to win the general election (See Fimian: I’m Not “too conservative”; Herrity Will Be at Unity Dinner.). How can anybody be “too Conservative?” Anyway, to some extent Fimian took the bait, suggesting that Herrity was the Tea Party candidate. Fortunately, Fimian did say he wants the Tea Party’s support, and he had supporters at the rally passing out campaign stickers encouraging people at the Manassas rally to show their support.
If Fimian wants to be our congressman, he must be unafraid to be who he is and unashamed of his friends. Otherwise, the Liberal news media will twist his message beyond all recognition.
