Not everyone at Saturday’s tea party gathering in Madison, Wisconsin were fans of Andrew Breitbart and Sarah Palin.

The two popular conservatives had to talk over the boos of about 3,000 pro-labor supporters at the Capitol.

“Shame, shame, shame!” the crowd chanted, according to The Progressive.

“Tax, tax, tax the rich!” was another chant heard there.

“Go to hell!” Breitbart shouted back at the protesters.


uh oh, Apparently there is division in the Tea Party at least in Wisconsin. That is a healthy thing; not to be swayed by the right wings, Koch bros. sponsored, war on the working men and women of America. Breitbart's talk about class warfare as being unAmerican is correct because imo, the war on the middle class was started by the elite wealthy Koch bros. to take away the right for workers to bargin collectively. Big mistake!

It wasn't Tea Party people doing the booing.
You need to read your own quote. It was pro-union demonstrators.

Ah...I see...they weren't "True" Tea Party people huh?


Time for us to all review the No True Scotsman fallacy.

So if I went to an Obama rally, and boo'ed him (I know, I'd be shot) then everyone could say Obama people at an Obama rally boo'ed him.

Got it.

This is what I have been saying all along!

The real, down in the weeds, Tea Party that you could go visit in your local town, is not a fan of the Palin Express, or the Fox News talking heads.

Sadly, there are a multitude of "Tea Parties" out there, and the one with the most money and press is also the one with the least amount of support or connection to regular folks.

It is discouraging to watch a pretty decent movement get railroaded by the money machine and opportunist politicians and pundits.

Of course there is. Ever since the GOP discovered that the original Tea Party was making some sense, they hitched their wagon to the TP and have been causing trouble and division ever since. There is the Tea Party (now the minority who really want better things for this country) and then there is the GOP Tea Party, who are using the TP name to bring Obama down. The GOP party are Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann, Glenn Beck, Donald Trump.. the extreme and insane among the GOP. They have STOLEN the name and are making what was a grassroots movement by the people into a freak show.

Of course the real Tea Partiers are going to boo these GOP idiots. Unfortunately, the real Tea Party doesn't have a chance.

Hmmm. Apparently not just Wisconsin.

If the election was on the 5th, what is the issue you are raising exactly? If you had that sign, would you go to the trouble to remove that days date from it on the day of the election? I am really asking. Seems perfectly normal to have a campaign sign with the date of the election on the date of the election.

Wow, that was way to much booing for it not to be the main attendees. I get the feeling that those in the crowd now correctly hear "we will unite under solidarity as patriots" as "bla bla bla, I am the other side of the same old coin".

The Koch brothers are small potatoes in the war on the middle class. Reagan was the kingpin, and the Bushes were his hit men.

Stars, stars and more stars! The (T)axed (E)nough (A)lready movement was great, as well as being bi-partisan. But it was hijacked and mutated by neo-cons and right wingnuts. It's sad that such a positive, grass-roots effort was killed by the very people that it was created to fight.

Well I've never been more proud to be a Wisconsinite!
While I don't label myself as any political party, I certainly find myself relating to an awful lot of Tea Party ideals.

And the fact that these two impostors were booed, is all right.

Truth be told, Mad-town isn't very welcoming to anything but the lefty-ist of leftist politics,
but I'm still glad they we're booed.

And Whaa, I'm pretty sure I've never SnF'd you, until now.
Pucker up!!!

It never was much of a movement to begin with.

And it was quickly usurped by those with money and connections.

I've always wondered if the people at tea party rallies with racist signs are/were plants? Would people actually do such a thing?

I believe for the first time I have to agree with you.


The true movement was grassroots, and come to find out, it was a mixture of political parties combined because of a general concern for the direction our country is headed.

And the tea party did get hijacked thats for sure.

Had to laugh at the submitted video too. I dont think I heard one positive " cheer " from the crowd?

Then you obviously dont keep up with the " true " movement headlines. They are still thriving.

It is still active in my town, and it has a major, major impact on state government in Florida, and it continues to have an impact through this legislative session.

TeaPartyPatriots.com

TaxTeaParty.com

The rallies have gotten larger and larger, and the Governor is a direct result of our little Tea Party, and Marco Rubio is a direct result of our little Tea Party, and Rubio happens to be a very good candidate for President in 2012!!

Our Tea Party was instrumental in the defeat of Allen Boyd, and Charlie Crist!!

Maybe you should check out the Tea Party in your town?

Might be a silly question but umm,who is this sarah chick again?

Get a clue here. The Tea Party crowd was completely united. Palin was booed at the periphery by pro-union thugs who tried to drown her out. They were not successful. Breitbert, for his part, told them to go to hell. That's the deal with free speech on the left. You get to have free speech if you agree with their socialist/progressive agenda, but if you don't, they'll try to shout you down. That's the left's idea of the fairness doctrine. Palin did a good job. I was getting kinda tired of her standard stump piece, but this was more hard hitting.
