DATELINE April 28, 2010 Quincy, Illinois—About two hundred Quincy Tea Party members gathered outside the Oakley-Lindsay Center to protest government spending and policies infringing on personal freedoms. The participants were vocal but well-behaved according to Quincy Herald Whig writer Rodney Hart.
After Fearless Reader’s motorcade arrived, those who had assembled near the Center moved closer and a Secret Service agent asked the crowd to move back across the street.
When the crowd didn't move and began singing "God Bless, America" and the national anthem, Quincy Deputy Police Chief Ron Dreyer called for members of the Mobile Field Force (a SWAT team dressed head-to-toe in riot gear) to walk up the street.
Is this the future of America where dissent must be silenced? When this president stood before the nation and told us that his intentions were to "fundamentally transform this nation,” people said it didn’t matter.
Chief Dreyer, the Secret Service and Team Obama along with the corporate-controlled lapdog media have lost all credibility and continue to humiliate and embarrass themselves by overreacting to the ever-growing millions of God-fearing Americans who are impassioned to protect their country against the radicalism of this Administration and the consequences are likely to be irreversible.
The smell of the Left’s panic permeates the air. They are desperate and it shows.
