Kicked off the day on this beautiful wam and sunny Saturday of Easter weekend with a rally on the capitol steps in Little Rock, AK. You’ll see by these photos that it was a friendly, America-loving crowd– the same type as seen at every other stop we’ve made in the week since beginning this tour in Searchlight, NV last Saturday.
I just want to say that the characterization of tea parties made by Rep. Steve Cohen couldn’t be more wrong. Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit posted about it earlier today:
Awful lib Rep. Steve Cohen compared tea party protesters to the KKK in an interview this week. Of course, he has nothing to back up these hateful accusations but it’s not like the media is going to correct him. We all know that won’t happen.
News Alert reported:
Rep. Steve Cohen:
“The tea party people are kind of without robes and hoods. They have really shown a very hardcore angry side of America that is against any type of diversity. We saw opposition to African-Americans, hostility towards gays, hostility towards anyone who, you know, just wasn’t a clone of George Wallace’s fan club.”
Do you suppose Cohen will apologize now that Rep. Cleaver admitted the spitting story was all made up?
Here’s the video…
Compare that with these photos of Little Rockers demonstrating peacefully on the capitol steps:
