Tea Party Has HUGE Rally At Searchlight, NV

On CNN they reported on the rally : “At least dozens of people.”

LMAO a dozen??? Hello CNN, your noses are really going to grow after this line of a lie.

See the video below.......


Tea Party Express coverage from the ABC station in Las Vegas

Here is aerial video of the Tea Party Express crowd gathered in Sen. Harry Reid's hometown of Searchlight, Nevada on March 27, 2010. A crowd of between 7,000-8,000 people gathered there to hear Sarah Palin and others kickoff the latest Tea Party Express tour that will stop in 40 cities, ending in Washington, D.C. on April 15, 2010.

Traffic on a highway leading into the town was backed up more than two miles.


Andrew Breitbart Describes Harry Reid Supporters on the Attack

Andrew Breitbart witnessed first hand today the cunning manipulation and violence of the unhinged left. Harry Reid supporters stood on Highway 95 outside of Searchlight, Nevada and held signs steering tea party protesters heading to the Tea Party Express Showdown in Searchlight Rally in the wrong direction. Andrew also witnessed these violent leftists attacking the Tea Party Express bus with eggs as it drove by. The Harry Reid supporters then swarmed him, harassed him, threatened him and made false statements to the police.



Sarah Palin in Searchlight:

“Now when we talk about “fighting” for our country. Let’s clear the air right now on what it is we’re talking about. We’re not inciting violence. Don’t get sucked into the lamestream media’s lies about conservative America’s standing up for freedom as inciting violence. It’s a bunch of bunk what the media is trying to feed you.”

Sarah Palin told thousands of tea party activists assembled in the dusty Nevada desert Saturday that Sen. Harry Reid will have to explain his votes when he comes back to his hometown to campaign.

The wind whipped U.S. flags behind the former Alaska governor as she stood on a makeshift stage, holding a microphone and her notes and speaking to a cheering crowd. She told them Reid, fighting for re-election, is "gambling away our future."

"Someone needs to tell him, this is not a crapshoot," Palin said.

About 7,000 people streamed into tiny Searchlight, a former mining town 60 miles south of Las Vegas, bringing American flags, "Don't Tread on Me" signs and outspoken anger toward Reid, President Barack Obama and the health care overhaul.

Palin told them the big-government, big-debt spending spree of the Senate majority leader, Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is over.

"You're fired!" Palin said.


Wild Thing's comment........

These rallies are pure Americana .. all ages .. smiles .. grit and fortitude, not hired busloads of slugs and bodies in rented doctor gowns. The stark divide in this country is truly disturbing.

I just pray there are elections .. and before the illegals and felons are given voting rights.

Heh heh the population of Searchlight is something like 500 people.... can you just imagine having about 8,000 people arrive for TEA Time. it.

Let's hope this gathering doesn't have the opposite effect on the people of Nevada. They may resent outsiders coming into their state and telling them who to vote for.

Bob, I doubt very much that the voters in Nevada are resentful of all of the "outsiders'.

If I had to guess, I would say that a large percentage of the people attending, were Nevadans.

I have been to and through Searchlight a few times and believe me it is one of those places, "You can't get there from Here." Those who attended made a real effort to get there.

Besides if one believes the polls,and they appear to be fairly consistent. Harry is losing Big Time and has little chance of getting re-elected.

Sarah made the point of outlining all of the talking points that Harry will use once he starts campaigning. The people of Nevada are not fools. They will see the lies for what they are and Harry willl be out on his keister.

Yeah I was wondering how big a town that is, 8000 has got to be more people than they've seen in a long time.

One thing the Leftists ought to remember, one very important item. The Tea Partiers are the ones who follow the Constitution, and consequently are the ones with the real weapons. This is NOT a threat, just...a word to the wise... a special message for the Union thug Bastards, "You F*ck with the Bull you're gonna get the horn."

BobF., the people I have met that live in Las Vegas area went and loved it. I think it depends on how they feel politically, but I know what you mean. The good thing is they loved it and showed up in droves as most there lived in the close by areas.

Posted by: Wild Thing at March 29, 2010 02:23 AM

Sean your right, most of the people lived right in Nevada and there are a lot of small cities very close by Searchlight.

Mark, YESSSS thanks for pointing that out about those that go to the Tea Parties and the Constitution.
