Tea Parties Scaring Reporters Away, No Film at Eleven

The Daily Kos files this report: “Goons at Cincinnati ‘tea party’ bullied, intimidated media.”

Here’s one brief, horrifying story from a reporter who for the safety of her crew had to leave tea party that made Fallujah look like Chuck E. Cheese — or so it would seem:

Don’t you love some of these media types? They’ll send their own (or go themselves) to Normandy, Iwo Jima, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Darfur and all manner of riots to cover the most horrific violence you can imagine.

They’ll stay embedded for days under heavy fire in order to get stories and footage, often doing their best to come up with excuses and generate sympathy for the feelings and actions of “the other side” — but send them to a “right wing” gathering in Cincinnati where a couple of guys who might have had too many beers give them the finger and they run away like Michael Moore from a salad bar. Wimps.

Only at left-wing protests can you find peace activists who will threaten to kill you, so I don’t really want to hear anything about “intimidation” at these tea parties — the size of which the left mocks. Which is it, libs? Are the tea parties insignificant jokes, or grave and dangerous threats to runaway liberalism… er, I mean, to the country?

We won’t find out on the eleven o’clock news.
