"Tea Party Sign Calls for Gun Violence" at Capitol Rally

Filed under: Uncategorized — ronrosenbaumwriter @ 3:08 pm

If you’re wondering why I care about it so passionately, take a good long look at the sign. And the picture of the gun. Yes Tea Party people, this is your movement, so pro- constitutional values, right? Well we have racists, we have people who threaten political opponents with murder. And sane people shouldn’t be concerned? No wonder so many cowardly commenters want to be anonymous. At least it shows they have a sense of shame.



  1. Were you so concerned when Bush was in office?

    If the Tea party is ruined because of sich signs, then what about the Peace movement?

  2. “The Soap Box, The Ballot Box, The Jury Box, And The Cartridge Box”

    That sign was someone expressing their 2nd amendment right with their 1st amendment right.

    BTW: Why no outrage, Ron, over a Union [Read LIB] Rhode Island teacher who hung an effigy of Obama in his own classroom for a week because he was angry over Obama’s support for the mass firing of teachers at the failing school.

    And why is the formatting on your blog page all messed up?

    “If you’re wondering why I care about it so passionately, take a good long look at Comment”

    There is no image or link to one.

  4. Ron, the formatting on this page is so bad that only two lines are visible and there is no link. I have no doubt you wrote another glorious column/ rant about how dangerous the Tea Party movement is, but I can’t read it unless the page format is fixed.

    2. Delia,

    Is that the writing on the sign to which Mr. Rosenbaum is referring? If it is, Ron is really having to dig deep to find physical threats. Wow

    I can think of two meanings for this:

    1) The sign bearer mistakenly believes he or she has a right to have a place to store his or her Atari 2600 game cartridges. No such right exists, but if he or she asks nicely I’m sure someone can spare a shoebox. Somehow, I doubt this is the case.

    2) The sign bearer is referring to an obsolete piece of military equipment in order to bring attention to the 2nd Amendment. Ron, do you understand why the 2nd Amendment was placed in the Bill of Rights? Nevermind, you never answer us anyways.
