It may have rained--even poured--but it didn't seem to dampen spirits at the Tax Day Tea Party on the Capitol steps in Harrisburg. I was there and agree with other sources that there were at least 1,000 people in attendance. (Addendum 4/16: some official accounts say 2,000 were there). Many more who were less willing to get chilled to the bone repeatedly drove by in their cars, taking photos, shouting in agreement...but we're not counting those. Imagine if the weather had been clearer.
Here's a quickly-produced YouTube video of the event.
Notice all the extreme Americans present, engaged in behavior that is downright threatening:
- Chanting inciteful slogans (USA, USA).
- Spontaneously breaking into song (God Bless America).
- Bringing food and personal items to donate to The Bethesda Mission. Voluntarily. The way we like it.
Proud to be among these great folks.
By the way, that's me and my daughter in the still photo with the signs. We were interviewed by the ABC affiliate in Harrisburg. This was her first protest. Aren't we "Smart Girls." And Extreme Americans.
