As many of you have been following the original ‘storm the capitol’ post, I am starting a new thread for post rally comments from attendees and videos of the rally as they become available. Anyone that has video or photos that they would like to have posted, please email me at diamondtiger12 at gmail dot com. – Mahalo, Diamond.

Okay – this is completely, well somewhere off the beaten path…here is a video from a decidedly left organization (Talking Points Memo) with this title:
Unruly Crowd Sings God Bless America as Capitol Police Arrest Tea Partiers for Unlawful Entry
Do all those little old ladies and grandpas look unruly to you? Do we know exactly why that man is on the ground? Is he really being arrested for unlawful entry? Now the second half of the title: “Capitol Police Arrest Tea Partiers For Unlawful Entry”.
Here are the liberal left (NOT TEA PARTY PATRIOTS) moonbats that were arrested in Sen. Lieberman’s offices:
Lots of protesting going on. Yes/No, Tea Party Patriots have been arrested – I think – all reports are coming from Talking Points Memo and I am looking for confirmation not based on their reporting.
This appears to be the story that TPM seems to be basing it’s TPP arrests on as it is linked into this story by Memorandum:
Nine arrested in Hart Building ahead of health care protest
As thousands of activists converged on the lawn of the Capitol for a midday rally against Democrats’ health-care reform legislation, Capitol Police arrested nine protesters Thursday morning in the Hart Senate Office Building.
The protesters were arrested about 10 a.m. on the seventh floor of the Hart Building and were charged with unlawful entry, a Capitol Police spokeswoman said.
“They were inside an office and didn’t leave,” Sgt. Kimberly Schneider said.
Are these Tea Party Patriots or Code Pink being arrested in Sen. Lieberman’s office?
UPDATE: It appears the protestors arrested in the Hart Building WERE Code Pink in Sen. Lieberman’s Office. The Capitol Police also report no OTHER arrests today, so what is that old man doing on the ground outside the capitol? Any TPPs have any information about him?
