    Chicago Tea Party – July 2009 ? ? This could get legs

CNBC’s Rick Santelli has set off a three-alarm fire today with his comments on the Obama give-away scheme.

Here’s a commentary on Ticker Forum:

It is hard to say if this has legs.  The people who are suffering the most from this are the ones who dutifully attend their jobs daily and are not normally apt to join demonstrations.  However, you can only push people so far without repercussions.  If it were to happen, it could lead to something that nobody wants.

Well, I don’t know about that.  Check out DIGG, (and dig it, if you’re registered there) The comments are tasty, and about 50:1 total in agreement with Rick.

I think the point is that the "silent" majority is tired of being so silent.  Too many outrages in the past six months alone…  

Edit:  Check out the CNBC poll on their site – 87% of responders are ready to pack their bags with tea and show up in Chicago!

Rush is playing the audio of the CNBC spot on his radio show today.

 

While you’re on Drudge, check out the story about the Oklahoma City man who had an anti-Obama sign taken away by the police. After that, the Secret Service came to his house to look around to make sure he wasn’t any part of a "hate" group. Can you say KGB, anyone?

I live in Oklahoma and had two Obama signs destroyed and one that just disappeared. Finally, I gave up and just made a large sign myself, that I would leave out in the day, and take back in at night, and did that until the election.

 And if there is any kind of revolution that involves that sack of sh^t Limbaugh, you can leave me out of it, unless you want me to fight against it.

The police state is an equal opportunity oppressor. This kind of story echos the groups of hippies who were harassed and/or arrested by federal agents for, well, just being hippies around the time of the Republican National Convention.

Don’t make this into a partisan issue because it’s not. Those who do are playing with fire.

The aspect of the story this Santonelli character misses is if the masses were ever to take to the streets with their torches and pitchforks he and his trading floor buddies would be among the first to be lynched. He kind of strikes me as a demagague for the upper-middle class.

If Drudge and Limbaugh are one’s guiding lights then woe is thee.

Tea Party

Amazing public support for this outcry, 85% now:

Karl Denninger and the entire Ticker Forum is solidly behind the July Tea protest in Chicago.  I like this.  Can we figure a way to recall the election of the Obamination and all his tax cheat appointments?  Just set the calendar back and maybe get Ron Paul instead?  Please?

You people who are directing your anger at the pawns who fell for the nasty mortgages or who are defaulting because they have lost their jobs are falling right into the hands of the real power that runs this country. Divide and conqure. Works everytime.

Bluemarble and all the other out there on this thread and others who offer similar sentiments:

I don’t understand what you are talking about! The outrage is not directed toward the homeowners in default – the outrage is directed towards our government. You seem to be looking at this through your own paranoid prism. I dare say that most of us out there who are disgusted, are not disgusted or angry at the homeowners getting "bailed out," for them we only have pity (and think they are probably not the smartest kids on the block) – we are disgusted and angry that our country is being destroyed from within. When you bail out people or institutions for making bad decisions, you set a very bad precedent and send a very dangerous message. This is just the final straw for some of us. I, for one, am no longer proud to be an American.
