Violent, Racist, Extremist Tea Partiers Infuriating Cops at Rallies

Yeah, not so much.

From Candace Moore at Newsbusters:

On Monday, the Christian Science Monitor bucked its mainstream peers by reporting something truthful about the TEA party movement: police officials have begun to relax security requirements at conservative rallies because of the remarkable absence of violence.


The Monitor was compelled to check things out when a TEA party in Raleigh, North Carolina, persuaded officials to overturn a ban on flag poles. Such items are typically banned because a flag pole is really just a very big stick that could be used as a weapon. The Monitor’s research led the paper to admit that conservative protests are far less threatening than many past demonstrations.


No matter how much prominent liberals talk about rampant violence, the facts on the ground tell a different story, and reporters end up leaving with rather dull footage – no police clashes, no tear gas, no images of people being carted away in handcuffs.

I was reminded of a picture I saw of the Tax Day Tea Party rally in DC last week. From Looking at the Left:

El Marco: "I asked this Washington D.C. officer how the crowd was, after the Tea Party Express rally ended. He said "These people are great. It’s like a day off, very relaxing."
