St. Louis – Nationwide Chicago “Tea Party”

February 24th, 2009 by mopns · No Comments

By conservative author and Republican strategist Michael Patrick Leahy

Online conservative activists have rallied to CNBC’s Rick Santelli’s call yesterday, backed by mortgage traders, for a “Chicago Tea Party” to protest the Obama Administration’s bailout plan.

Moving quickly, Top Conservatives on Twitter, Smart Girl Politics, the #Dontgo movement, and American Spectator magazine joined forces to announce a nationwide “Chicago Tea Party”, to be held on Friday, February 27.

The tea party will be held in Chicago, at dozens of locations around the US, and on Twitter, using the #teaparty hashtag.

Santelli’s criticism of the Obama mortgage plan is that it rewards the irresponsible, while penalizing the responsible.
