Nobody expects fair coverage from the media when it comes to peaceful protests against Obama. But this just seems a bit coordinated.
About 200 people, counting among their ranks Republican Senator Mike Lee, Senator Ted Cruz and former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin, converged on D.C.’s World War II memorial Sunday morning. Slightly overselling themselves as the ”Million Vet March on the Memorials,” they cut through barriers to protest the site’s closing during the shutdown.
“This is the people’s memorial,” Cruz said in a speech. “Let me ask a simple question. Why is the federal government spending money to erect barricades to keep veterans out of this memorial?”
Clearly they didn’t have a million people, but it was way more than 200. You ever notice the leftist media doesn’t count heads at pro-Democrat rallies? Funny, that. But stop the presses, someone popped up with a Confederate flag. Oh my! Of course no media inquired as to who this person was. We suspect this was all staged, and lo and behold, the DCCC fundraiser email showed up by 8 pm Sunday night. Imagine that:
Did you see this?
At today’s rally led by Senator Ted Cruz, Tea Party activists marched to the White House with Confederate flags. It’s simply appalling.
This wasn’t just an isolated incident.
One speaker from a Tea Party outside group told the crowd to “demand that this president leave town […] put the Quran down, to get up off his knees, and to figuratively come out with his hands up.”
Ted Cruz and his Tea Party House Republican followers need to denounce this behavior immediately. Make them.

Update: They’re back for more this morning. Now it’s Confederate flags, plural. And Ted Cruz must denounce these, um, Tea Partiers?
At a rally led by Senator Ted Cruz, Tea Party activists marched to the White House with Confederate flags. It’s simply appalling.
We’re trying to reach 100,000 strong demanding Ted Cruz and his Tea Party House Republican followers denounce this radical behavior immediately.
Forward this email to three friends right now and ask them to demand Ted Cruz and denounce disgusting Tea Party attacks on President Obama.
We’ve seen one photo of the Confederate flag. By the end of the days it’ll be hundreds of them.
