Angry, Ignorant Tea Party Crowd: Heckler Joe Wilson is Their Hero

September 13, 2009

(ChattahBox)—A crowd of tea party protesters estimated by the DC Fire Department at about 60,000 to 70,000 people, swarmed the west side of the Capitol along the Mall on Saturday. Some of the attendees were armed with cardboard signs displaying racial smears, ignorance, bigotry and anger. The crowd was mostly white with a large number of senior citizens and families.

The crowd shouted variations of the infamous refrain, “You lie” of the disgraced presidential heckler, Congressman Joe Wilson from South Carolina and proudly displayed signs portraying President Obama as a liar, Communist, Socialist, Marxist, a devil and Hitler to name a few.

It’s difficult to fathom why a group of people would embrace a man like Joe Wilson as their hero, who disgracefully called the President of the United States a liar during his speech before a joint session of Congress on national television. Rep. Wilson should be condemned for his shameful behavior, but teapartiers are endorsing Wilson’s hooliganism and lack of respect for the office of the president.

The Glenn Beck supporters from his 9/12 organization were in full force at the tea party march, as well as various groups funded and organized by Dick Armey’s FreedomWorks organization. Others there, were opposed to big government and excess taxation.

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) appeared to speak before the crowd referencing his earlier statement that health care reform would be Obama’s Waterloo, “Ladies and Gentlemen: Welcome to Waterloo!” DeMint described the tea party protesters waving their signs depicting Obama as a Marxist and a Socialist, as “freedom fighters.”

DeMint insisted, in an interview with the Washington Independent, that the tea party crowds were “a cross-section of the population.” When confronted with the fact that nearly everyone at the march was white, DeMint said, “It’s probably just the time and organization and the media that promoted it.”

Meanwhile, House Democrats plan to introduce a “resolution of disapproval” next week unless Wilson apologizes on the House floor, but Sen. DeMint said he supported Wilson’s shout of “You Lie” to President Obama.

“I don’t think he’s going to do any more apologizing,” said DeMint.
