A Protest for the Rest of Us


Conveniently located in downtown Seattle, so I went to check it out.



I believe the lady in the pink dress, under the arch, is the organizer, but I wasn't there for the beginning and introductions. I have no idea why the cherrypicker was there.



Of course my cell phone cheerfully notified me it was full, thank you, just before some liberal nutbar decided we'd had enough expressing our opinions and he needed to tell us how wrong we were (complete with Nazi salute, too.) He was escorted peacefully off-stage. There were two cops wandering around, but you could tell they were not expecting any trouble from us.

I tried to get some pictures of the funny signs, but the cellphone, as I said, was not a team player. One said "Not all Thieves wear Masks". No paper mache giant heads, inflated body parts, or people dressed like pink homeless ladies. Just nice pleasant people (except for the national socialist wannabe), kids in strollers, people of all ages. And colors. I am not a certified crowd estimator, but it seemed like 100+. I got there perhaps 30 minutes in and couldn't stay long. I have to work so I can pay taxes for the Stimulus Bill.

Update: Welcome, Malkinites!

Great post. I live in Seattle and wish I had known about this protest. Can I get on a list for the next one?
My alternate plan is to march on DC, alone.

I'm actually very surprised. I guess I don't know Seattle that well, but I always assumed it was nothing more than a mini-San Francisco with all its liberalism and ObamaBots there.

Good job Seattle. Too bad none of the LMSM will mention this.

I attended, it was my first protest rally. It was a little smaller than I would have liked, but hey, it's Seattle. It's great we got the 125 or so that we got!

My little report:

yeah, so? This was the equivalent of Rachel Ray doing a live broadcast of her famous "Veal Tartare with Dolphin Mousse" in the heart of vegan country. I'm sure there were a lot of very surprised liberals who saw the protest, since they assumed there weren't ANY conservatives in Seattle. And to conclude, neener!

The Boston Tea Party was quite small too, as I remember learning. It started something a little, tiny bit bigger though due to the passion of freedom loving people.

I have always said that the inherent weakness of the conservatives is their very strength of character and rugged individualism. Whereas the natural collectivist instincts of the left gives them the quick and easy strength of numbers when they need to raise their voices.

Good job Seattle conservatives!

Way to go Seattle Conservatives and Snark Patrol. I live in Chicago and we no longer have the guts to even speak our mind.

We Silent in Chicago are proud that you are not Speachless in Seattle. ; ))

Same here. I'm in Seattle and hadn't known about this. Too bad, I'd have paid a visit.

We are hosting a We Surround Them viewing party on March 13th @ 7:30 pm at a bar & grill in the Shoreline area. This is a Fox News and Glenn Beck special feature we will be watching on the big screen, and networking to take back our country. We hope to have Dave Bose, Mike Medved, or Ken Hutcherson there. Please joing me in calling these guys to participate. Anyone who has access to a big indoor place please let us know. Your not alone!

The Tea Party that has been mentioned is TODAY at 12:15, not Feb 27th - unless there is another one. I believe there will be a lot more tho. We are hosting a We Surround Them rally at Jersey's Great Food & Spirits in Shoreline on March 13th at 7:30pm. Show up and support!

I would have gone to this as well if I had known, however I will be at the 4/15 Tax Day Tea Party and am sharing the information with others. Here's the link, it sounds like some of you are further south and there will be a group organizing in Olympia.

Also, to find a Glenn Beck group in your area go to this link:

Also, he is starting a 912Project and has a website for it:

Love that the conservatives in WA are rallying together!!!!
