Statement on Rally Security
At our most recent rally on March 20th, bottles of water and gatorade were thrown at Temecula Tea Party folks by liberals as they sped by in their cars.
Immediately before the libs engaged in this 'drive by' ... they called the Police on us ...with a truly bizarre and fraudulent charge that we were "groping" them. (???) This is a 'direct action' tactic right out of Alinsky's Rules for Radicals.
At this point I want to insert a statement and a video link contributed by Temecula Valley Tea Party Patriots member - Dusty Lunde:
My 13 year old daughter captured this footage of a man attacking a Tea Party Patriot. I witnessed the assault, it looked as if he shoved the Tea Partier. My daughter grabbed her camera, and started filming. The guy came from the direction that he left in. He parked in that parking lot and came to that corner just to start a fight, when he couldn't provoke a reaction, he left, at one point he shoved his girl friend into the street, it was bad.
The guy that was assaulted didn't do anything, there was a person behind me that came from no where, and started filming too, and left as soon as it was over, he was not with the Tea Party, I think this was a set up to get an attack on video by provoking violence, but we were peaceful. Just 10 minutes after this happened the police arrived, and were harassing us. I have that on video as well. I have a list of witnesses as well. Here is the link to the video, this was taken at the end of the skirmish.
This shows that the liberal opposition will not hesitate to plant decoys at the rallies that will act as a part of the rally, but say, and do things to make us look bad in front of the media.
I think it is important to be alert, and aware of these things, but most of all, to always maintain our peaceful, professional composure, even if attacked.
The Police came by and those of us present were rendered speechless at the bizarre/fraudulent charge from the left. It reveals exactly who we are dealing with here... People who have no respect for the valuable time of Police Officers and people who will lie and cross the line when their philosophy is challenged.
For this reason, we would like to remind everyone that we are a law abiding group of Americans peacefully assembling to exercise our First Amendment right.
Recently, we have seen an increase in attacks on Tea Party folks from the Left nationwide. It is more important than ever that we remain responsible Americans as we gather on the 15th of April.
Please do not verbally engage or confront liberals as they shout at you from their cars or if they show up on the sidewalk next to you. These situations only escalate and we do not want anything to happen that might endanger our right to peacefully assemble.
As law abiding Americans please be ready to address any undesirable situations in a calm and rational manner. If you see a fellow Tea Partier become distressed and begin to engage these radicals - calm them down - remind them that we do not want to risk our right to assemble. It's not worth the energy to engage with these people they only want to create trouble for us...don't let them!
When you cease to engage a liberal, they eventually go away. Ignore them...remember we are Happy Warriors...let's conduct ourselves in an upright, lawful, peaceful and positive manner.
We must remain on the sidewalk and cannot step into the street for any reason - endangering ourselves or drivers. To do otherwise will endanger our right to peacefully assemble.
If you have a video camera, you might consider bringing it - just in case... If we remain the same, law abiding and respectful group we have always been we will have nothing to worry about...yet, if the liberals continue to engage in negative behavior such as throwing things at us from moving vehicles or planning to confront us on camera - we can capture it on tape and protect ourselves from their bizarre, fraudulent lies just as Dusty has shown.
Everyone has done a superb job thus far keeping the rally site litter free - let's continue to take our trash out with us.
I know that we're all dizzy from the speed in which the current administration is legislating away our freedoms, but we must stand strong for what is good and lawful and right and conduct ourselves accordingly at our rallies. Thank you!
