    The Sam Adams Alliance, a tax-exempt non-profit, gives support to various "non-partisan" Tea Party groups.

    So given your lack of outrage about that, I'd say the second part of your post hits the nail on the head.

    Hell, for that matter, the Mormon Church was a huge opponent of Proposition Eight in California. They should CLEARLY lose their tax exempt status.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Good argument.

    Looks like your vaunted support of free speech is actually pretty limited.

    Free Speech has its limits.

    I find it interesting that only right wing sites are carrying this story.

    It isn't a political rally in the sense that they are supporting a candidate or a political campaign.

    He might actually be right apsdt, it's graduating from political rally to riot and may even enter into criminal syncicalism soon with all the NeoNazi militias, communist groups, and aging '60s radicals gravitating in and trying to shut down ports, then there's that revelation that they threw **** (literally) at cops. Yeah, it's a simple "political rally" alright(sarcasm). And to those dismissing the ACORN thing, they got busted for criminal activity, there are multiple news stories that are stating that the new groups are even using old ACORN letterhead in their correspondence regarding these "protests", so that's another nail in the ACORN is innocent argument. apsdt is right, strip 'em of their tax exempt status.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
