Broad TEA Party Coalition States - "Threats & Raw Language Unacceptable"

Link

WASHINGTON, DC (March 26, 2010) - The coalition that forms "Take The Town Halls To Washington " worked last week to get more than 30,000 Americans from across the country into to Washington DC in a last-ditch effort to be heard by their elected leaders. That afternoon, rally demonstrators gathered at the Cannon building to express their disagreement with their Congressmen as they returned from the first of three votes that day.

On the way to the Cannon building, a contingent of Congressional Black Congress members Cleaver, Carson, and Lewis reported they were the victim of vicious racial slurs as they walked through the crowd of demonstrators. Congressman Cleaver even reported he was spat upon.

Tea party people in attendance, rightly shocked, immediately began to review their video. They called each other, asking, "Did you hear anything? Did you see anything?" Then the answers starting coming back: no, nope, I got nothing, I didn't see anything, I didn't hear anything... There are more people to talk to and more video to review, but as of this writing, absolutely no corroborating account, photo, video, or audio has been identified by any person, whether tea partier, passerby, police, reporter or other congressman.

As a direct result of the CBC members' allegations and subsequent unquestioned reporting by media, fellow Congressmen leapt to the floor of the House of Representatives to condemn the racially charged epithets allegedly launched by the Tea Party demonstrators and to hurl their own sexually charged epithets back at the protestors.

We agree that there can be no tolerance of any discourse that threatens personal safety or degrades into racially or sexually charged comments. We have pushed back on the left's attempt to use derogatory and pornographic images to label the tea party, we have pushed back when we were threatened during the town halls and we will push back when we are falsely accused of actions not clearly identified with tea party participants.

Conservative principles call for reasoned dialogue and respectful passion. The Democrats have ignored the people and have inflamed their constituents. We call on all parties to reject hate speech, derogatory caricatures and any threats of harm to property or people. We can only assume that the recent attacks against the tea party – without any evidence that the tea party was involved in any alleged incident – has more to do with the success of the tea party in inspiring the American people than in any sincere desire to make known any dangerous words or acts.

Even so, the people of the tea party movement are eager to find and identify any person who may have made deplorable and unacceptable attacks that the CBC members describe. And we are committed to hold ourselves and the left accountable to the standards of reasoned discourse.

Code Red Rally: 12 Noon Saturday Washington DC

Click HERE to read the press release
With the critical nature of a looming Congressional decision, a broad coalition of Tea Party organizations and leadership is launching the final push before a possible vote by the House. These events are being coordinated across the US and are aimed at communicating the frustration of the people while demanding the termination of this health bill legislation. While the DNC and the administration continue to obfuscate and confuse, this coalition is focused on getting activists involved prior to Pelosi's maneuvering.

The following actions are planned for the next 72 hours:

· Calling campaigns to the House by constituents to vote no on the bill
· "Talk to Washington" healthcare town halls in Mississippi, Pennsylvania and other states
· Code Red rally in Washington, DC at 12 noon on Saturday at Upper Senate Park
· Nationwide "Virtual Vigil" on BlogTalk radio sponsored by DoctorsandPatients.org

Pittsburgh Tea Party Meets with Congressman Altmire

Press Release

Yesterday, a group of forty members of the Pittsburgh Tea Party Movement journeyed to Washington, D.C. by bus to attend a meeting with U.S. Representative Jason Altmire (D) to discuss concerns about his position on the Senate health care bill. The group, comprised mostly of small business owners, passionately expressed their concerns about the Senate bill and repeatedly asked Rep. Altmire to vote no and kill the bill.

Barack Obama's Cousin, a Doctor, says NO to Obamacare

Link to his Washington Times Op/ed

I have personally trained and practiced in both the government-run and free-market segments of American medicine. The difference is vast. Patients see this for themselves, and this may be why, according to a recent CNN poll, they oppose Obamacare nearly 3 to 1. I am with them. It is difficult for me to speak publicly against the president on his central issue, but too much is at stake.

I wish my cousin Barack the greatest of success in office. But I feel duty-bound to rise in opposition to Obamacare. I must take a stand for my patients, my profession and, ultimately, my country. The problems caused by government will not be solved by growing government. Now that this new era of big-government takeovers has spread to our health care system, it's not just our freedoms or our wallets that are at stake. It's our lives.
