Jason Rink Gave the Boldest Tea Party Speech yesterday

Tea Party 5 Comments

Wow. I really hope somebody caught it on video and this ends up on YouTube. The guy before me yesterday (at the Cincinnati Tea Party at Fifth Third Arena) was Jason Rink. I don’t want to spoil it. You won’t believe what he said to those people. And keep in mind, during the pre-game show with the slide show on the scoreboards, the crowd boohed Obama and Pelosi, went nuts for George W. Bush, and didn’t react to the few slides of Ron Paul.

I don’t want to comment on my talk until I know if video will be available. But here’s me (photo credit Tony Garcia; Jason Osborne and his dad Mike were also in the group):

BTW I was the second last speaker; Jonah Goldberg was the keynote. The stands had a lot more people in them at peak.

    It’s amazing how almost every sector of American political life embraces the same civic mythology.

    Sorry, but I can’t get into the Tea Party. I’m a coffee guy. But the more I learn, the more it seems that the conspiracy theorists and militia enthusiasts are taking over. Also, listen carefully to their economics. They don’t really want smaller government. They want to use the power and wealth of the government to attain their own agenda. Take Sarah Palin, for example. She has a long list of problems the state needs to solve, but she is totally unaware that solving problems requires taxes and a large state. And it’s not just Palin; every Republican has the same problem, especially with the military and the social agenda.

    I might become more enthusiastic about tea if these same people had rallied and protested when Bush was enlarging the state. They seem to get energized only when a Democrat is in the White House.

    fundamentalist, get off the lefty talking points. First tea parties started right after the wall street bailout by the Bush admin. Look it up.

    I went to the Cincinnati Tea Party on the 15th and snapped a nice pic of Dr. Murphy while he was signing books. The crowd was far too neoconservative for my blood. When the crowd started cheering for both the Presidents Bush I knew I wouldn’t be staying long.
