Washington D.C. Tea Party Protest Goes Beyond Expectations

Up to two million march to US Capitol to protest against Obama’s spending in ‘tea-party’ demonstration

Up to two million people marched to the U.S. Capitol today, carrying signs with slogans such as “Obamacare makes me sick” as they protested the president’s health care plan and what they say is out-of-control spending.

The line of protesters spread across Pennsylvania Avenue for blocks, all the way to the capitol, according to the Washington Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency.

People were chanting “enough, enough” and “We the People.” Others yelled “You lie, you lie!” and “Pelosi has to go,” referring to California congresswoman Nancy Pelosi.

What you aren’t hearing is that the march stretched from the Capital to the Lincoln Memorial.  Are you ready for this great time lapse of the march I was directed to on Rhetorican?

Dear readers, I will leave you tonight with just a few more photos as I am crashing hard. Tomorrow will be the photos and commentary.

We all made history today!

  1. Thanks again for going DT. I can’t tell you how envious I am of those of you that could attend. Thanks for standing up for us all, and thanks for leading the fight here on the Monster.

  2. Fantastic. Stop and think how large the group really is. Many at home..many protesting in their towns. A wake up call..but we will never go to sleep again.

  3. I looked for you in the crowds shown on TV and the computer yesterday, but there were so many I couldn’t pick you out. Maybe its also because I don’t know what you look like. LOL.

    Great photos, LM. And thank you for being there for those of us unable to make the journey with you. The MSM, WH, and Congress can pretend, dissemble and hide, but they all know what happened yesterday.

  4. Hey Kids! I am working on a more meaty post today with the thoughts, observations and photos that everybody is really looking for. Check back in a few hours. Just for everybody’s info – the dc police were estimating 1.5 million at 1pm yesterday, and I heard reports that the freeways into the city were shut down because buses and patriots were still coming in at that time.

  5. Some newspapers are trying to down play this event, like The Sacramento Bee. They show the crowd on the front page, but suggest that it’s a Republican driven movement. They name Republican politicians. They estimate the crowd to be in the tens of thousands; it was more than a million.

    One thing I feel very positive about. The politicians are trying to jump on this band wagon; we need to say no to the politicians, and say this is a movement of The People. We are sick of both parties.

  6. I didn’t get to go after all, Diamond, but my family went and my daughter brought me back buttons, etc. I had to be content with the knowledge that my family and friends were well represented. I watched Glenn Beck and after I saw all the crowds I knew why it was better that I didn’t go down. I would have slowed the family down and they were so enthused that that wouldn’t have been right.

    I am just so glad that you were there, Diamond. When I saw the sign saying “can you hear me now?”, I wondered if that was you. Will be looking forward to all you have to write about it.

  7. The Republicans are trying their hardest to join up with our local 9.12 group. Yesterday morning, 6:15 AM, we met to get on 3 buses for Washington. McDonnell for Governor campaign and and 2 local delegates campaigners showed up for support and names.

  8. 2 million Patriots showed up and millions more showed their support. This President and Congress do not know what they are up against. Thank you for taking pictures and spreading the message of what it was all about.

  9. Imagine this: Everyone of those people that were in D.C. this weekend are gun owners, and believe in the 2nd Amendment. Would you want to face those people when the Revolution begins?
