National Tea Party: Media Calls for a Protest Showdown But Only 4 People Show

It was almost a dream come true.
The media reported that a group of a National Tea Party Convention counter-protesters were going to flock to the Opryland Hotel for a showdown.

But only 4 people showed up.
The mainstream media, of course, swarmed them.

The protesters belonged to the Tennessee Tea Party Coalition. They told the media they represent 35 of 44 tea party groups in Tennessee and they were upset with the event this weekend.

Right Wing News posted the group’s press release.

They stayed for a while and spoke with the media. They said they didn’t hold a grudge against those who attended this weekend’s event but they were upset that the convention cost so much. They wanted to hold the rally in a larger venue so more people could come.


It wasn’t much of a counter protest. It will be interesting to read how the media spins this.
