    I have to ask......how is something that starts with professional protesters, grass roots?

    In fact Charlie Rangel tried to speak there and was yelled at by protesters that he's part of the problem.

    The only thing that's come across is the income inequality in this country.
    I missed that. I'll have to see if I can find it. Good for them if they did acknowledge that he is crook and thief.

    Once more and then three strikes and you're out.

    On January 24, 2009, Trevor Leach, chairman of the Young Americans for Liberty in New York State organized a "Tea Party" to protest "obesity taxes" proposed by New York Governor David Paterson and call for fiscal responsibility on the part of the government. Several of the protesters wore Native American headdresses similar to the band of 18th century colonists who dumped tea in Boston Harbor to express outrage about British taxes.[37]
    Can you see that on January 4, 2009, Trevor Leach organized what he called a "Tea Party" then, three weeks later, a commentator used the term and shortly thereafter, following all the cheers, the Party began to grow more rapidly?

    You should understand that getting credit for starting something is not the same as starting something.
    This from your own, apparently unread, link.

    Santelli, however, can't claim credit as the sole mastermind of the movement. Prior to his appearance in Chicago, Keli Carender, a Seattle at-home mother also known as Liberty Belle, had been using her blog to get the word out about the populist "Porkulus Protest" she was organizing against President Barack Obama's proposed $750 billion stimulus package. About 100 people showed up for her event in mid-February. Similar events inspired by both Santelli and Carender, followed in quick succession in Denver; Mesa, Ariz.; Tampa, Fla.; and other cities. Tea Party organizers claim that the first nationwide Tea Party protest took place on February 27, 2009, with coordinated events occurring in more than 40 cities.
    Doesn't that sound "Grass roots" to you?

    Those protests on 2/27/09 where funded with PAC money
    Then you should be easy for you to supply the evidence and point out why this is a problem for you.

    Because "professional protestor" is a misleading term meant to smear

    What's up with the racist headgear? Sorry, it had to be pointed out as it would have been if this was a Tea Party rally.

    You can't actually point to where I was wrong. I said "That wasn't a protest by the Tea Party. It was a protest by "Young Americans for Liberty". It says so right in your quote" and I was right.



    Can you see that on January 4, 2009, Trevor Leach organized what he called a "Tea Party" then, three weeks later, a commentator used the term and shortly thereafter, following all the cheers, the Party began to grow more rapidly?
    The group wasn't a Tea Party. They merely called a protest a "tea party". It wasn't the first time someone has done that.

    You should understand that getting credit for starting something is not the same as starting something.
    YOu should understand that calling a protest is not the same as starting a movement.


    This from your own, apparently unread, link.
    Apparently, you think "Porkulus Protest" means "Tea Party" and you apparently did not read the last sentence


    Tea Party organizers claim that the first nationwide Tea Party protest took place on February 27, 2009, with coordinated events occurring in more than 40 cities.
    Doesn't that sound "Grass roots" to you?

    No, it doesn't. Those protests were promoted by the media and were funded with money from Dick Armeys (republican) PAC

    Then you should be easy for you to supply the evidence and point out why this is a problem for you.
    The evidence has already been posted. Several times

    This has nothing whatsoever to do with th post you quoted. Nothing.
