This is a great story showing two rallies, one left and one right, and the stark differences between them.

What is your point?

Both are ashamed/angry at the direction their country is taking. That is pretty much it.

Do you suggest that one is automatically better than the other?

Edit: And one side brainwashed their children into believing what they do. But then again, even if not depicted, so do the other side. So it's kif-kif.

Hmm, isn't teaching a child what we believe to be right our job as parents? How is taking your child with you to participate in something you deem good brainwashing? It's one thing to teach children to hate, it's another to instill your values in them. If you wanna get technical here brainwashing children is part of being a parent, or do you plan on kicking your children out of the nest at an early age and hope they can fly on their own?

I'll never understand this whole "brainwashing children" comment when it comes to parents bringing children to participate in what they deem a good thing.

Because I have read that very term a thousand time on this forum regarding Obama partisanship and their children during September/October 08. So I only saw fit of using this board's terminology.

I don't think you read anything to be asking that.

I don't think you realise one might have a different perspective on things than you to be saying that.

Care to point at some for reference or am I suppose to take your word for it? As I said, something deemed good, not something they deemed right. To make a child hate someone is not the same as making a child stand for something.

Hard to mmistake the naked hatred and racism (even by blacks) on the left, while noting the fun the right was having.  It is not a perspective when you are using filth and obscenities to make your point (as you well know, it is not a requirement for debate, protest or disagreement).

I will give them this.  They at least kept it peaceful.  A rarity on the left, but perhaps there is hope for them now.

You do realize how skewed to the poster's point of view this is?  Another contributor could pick photos of smiling, peace sign waving people on the left and people extreme right with ugly and hateful signs.  The fact is that one side isn't everything that is good and right in the world and the other side is evil.  That is a simplistic view and not reality.  We need to see the point that other side wants to improve this country too, they just disagree on the best way to accomplish that.

Could you post some hateful signs from a real Tea Party rally that is as hateful as ones on the left?

That's the problem Loca, the "other side" doesn't want to improve the country, they want to destroy what we know of it.  These are people who think anyone making a profit, or money for that matter is bad.  I could go on and on, but the point is the left, which has been tossing stones at the Tea Party, are a bitter and hateful bunch overall.

The following images were from "peace" rallies in New York 2003. 2004, and 2008 (how soon we forget):

Kiss My

I guess one can only be a racist if they are white? Change Bush to Obama, black to white and let a white person hold the sign and I suppose you have your average Tea Party member?

FU

No...no hate here from the left... nothing to see folks just move along.

Death

Funny, it didn't seem like many Iraqis shared the same opinion.

terrorist

I guess a president can only be a terrorist in foreign affairs. Some people call domestic terrorism, destroying the country from within, "hope" and "change". Bill Ayers must be blushing.

Remember 

Yep I sure do. The left wing majority of the US government despised the Patriot Act so much, that they decided to keep it in force, relatively unchanged. Wonder if this guy is still protesting? Probably not.

Hope and change

Wonder if this guy got all he "hoped" for in the last election? Nice tie with the $50 bills on it, maybe he can spend that on his mandatory health care premium. Hard to see, but the woman next to him is wearing a Kerry button. She definitely would have been fooled again had he won.

I didn't put up some of the more distasteful photos, but enough to give the picture. BTW These photos were taken by an anti-bush/anti-war supporter, not some right-winger trying to prove a point.

Loca, your first two photos look suspect to me (ie photoshoped). If they were professionally made we should be seeing a sea of them. The second photo is slightly tilted to the right (look at the square supporting stick), yet the type is perfectly flat. I know you probably found these on line, and that was the purpose, let others spread this around. I guess if the left can't find enough hate, they will make their own to suit their needs. But sure, you can find actual photos to make your point.

Uh, Loca, I think you just proved ID's point.  The Tea party signs (some are tasteless) are not threatening violence.  Just avowing to watch out at the election box.

Besides, if you look at the ONE protest on the left, the Nazi signs are rampant, not an exception.

(I liked the "ram it down our throats one").

  "We came unarmed - this time".  That doesn't sound like a love letter to me.  There was more than one with this slogan on it.

Maybe - I found them on google image search.  

 

Also I have to add that there is not a "leftist rally" event.  There are tea bag events.  There are peace rallies, capital punishment protests, global warming protests etc. but there is not "leftist rally" movement.  My point is that this is completely to the original poster's perspective.  The whole idea of all the tea party participants being sweet and wholesome and love their country.  And the participants of the "leftist rally"  are all violent and hate America is not reality.  That is someone's perception.  You can agree with it or disagree with it but that is not a factual portrayal, it is a generalization.

Sure!  Ever hear of the assualt on the 2nd amendment?  I think the sign was a statement on the right to carry guns.  Everyone (or even most) that carry a gun never point, click and or fire at another person.  They are merely exercising their 2nd amendment right (which is one of the corner stones of the Tea Party).

 

Also I have to add that there is not a "leftist rally" event. There are tea bag events.

Do not fall for that trap.  There are Tea Party Events, but "tea bag" events occur in San Francisco and Greenwich village.  And they are not protesting when they do it.
