DaTechGuy goes to see Allen West in Lexington

I was plan­ning to cover an event in New­bury­port MA today da plan was to get there at 11 to cover till 2 until I got word via Free­dom Con­nec­tor that Con­gress­man Allen West (Fl-​22) was com­ing to Lex­ing­ton green for 11 a.m.

I decided on a new plan, I’d cover the Allen West event, make my call into WROL Boston for my weekly bot on Out With Joe after I left on the road to New­bury­port and then cover the event get­ting there a lit­tle late.

So after Mass still wear­ing a suit I headed for Lex­ing­ton. Although I’ve been to Con­cord Bridge many times I had only dri­ven by Lex­ing­ton green on rare occa­sions and never stopped. So I parked the car at the green at about 9:50 and took a few shots

I noted the old­est mon­u­ment, dated 1799, seemed to be on a mound.

I was sur­prised to find out those who died in the bat­tle were re-​burried there more than a half cen­tury after the fact.

and even more sur­prised to find the mon­u­ment to the ships named Lex­ing­ton behind the Tavern

Slowly peo­ple started show­ing up, as it got nearly to 11 I was sur­prised how few, until I was told that the time had been changed to 12:00

So I waited

Took some pictures

and waited more

While wait­ing I inter­viewed one of the men waiting

and then a Tomi Olsen a GOP can­di­date anx­ious in Mid­dle­sex 24

Mean­while the crowd kept grow­ing and grow­ing I had counted over 150 when I stopped.

After 3 hours I was get­ting REALLY hot I finally took my suit coat off and put my lap­top in the car and New­bury­port was off the menu, I was talk­ing to the police Sgt on Duty as the crowd con­tin­ued to grow to over 150. I was in the mid­dle of an excel­lent con­ver­sa­tion with a Lex­ing­ton police Sgt when he pointed to the green and there was Con­gress­man west

He was not tak­ing ques­tions but he had plenty of time for the people

He said a few words:

and posed for picture

after pic­ture

after pic­ture

and then more pictures

Although he had a 2nd event wait­ing he con­tin­ued to give time

and more time

Even though it was very hot

and the line of peo­ple never seemed to stop

Until it was finally time to go but lucky for him there was an Ice Cream Truck Nearby

and as he left I talked to Mo the Ice Cream man who served him

The Take away thoughts

1. In Mass­a­chu­setts an unpub­lished appear­ance by Allen West can draw 5x the num­ber of peo­ple as a planned rally pro­moted nation­ally by the left on a Fri­day night just out­side of Boston.

2. 30 peo­ple mak­ing noise is worth two media trucks to the Boston MSM but 150 – 200 on Lex­ing­ton Green to see Allen West is not a story worth cov­er­age beyond a blog­ger with a radio show on WCRN.

3. The left tar­get­ing of Allen West has shaken him up so much that he can travel 9 states to the north to visit Mass­a­chu­setts while Democ­rats are being advised to stay in their own dis­tricts by their leaders.

4. If the GOP is going on offense in Mass­a­chu­setts this elec­tion is going to be an unmit­i­gated dis­as­ter for the left.

I was planning to cover an event in Newburyport MA today da plan was to get there at 11 to cover till 2 until I got word via Freedom Connector that Congressman Allen West (Fl-22) was coming to Lexington green for 11 a.m.

I decided on a new plan, I’d cover the Allen West event, make my call into WROL Boston for my weekly bot on Out With Joe after I left on the road to Newburyport and then cover the event getting there a little late.

So after Mass still wearing a suit I headed for Lexington. Although I’ve been to Concord Bridge many times I had only driven by Lexington green on rare occasions and never stopped. So I parked the car at the green at about 9:50 and took a few shots

I noted the oldest monument, dated 1799, seemed to be on a mound.

I was surprised to find out those who died in the battle were re-burried there more than a half century after the fact.

and even more surprised to find the monument to the ships named Lexington behind the Tavern

Slowly people started showing up, as it got nearly to 11 I was surprised how few, until I was told that the time had been changed to 12:00

So I waited

Took some pictures

and waited more

While waiting I interviewed one of the men waiting

and then a Tomi Olsen a GOP candidate anxious in Middlesex 24

Meanwhile the crowd kept growing and growing I had counted over 150 when I stopped.

After 3 hours I was getting REALLY hot I finally took my suit coat off and put my laptop in the car and Newburyport was off the menu, I was talking to the police Sgt on Duty as the crowd continued to grow to over 150. I was in the middle of an excellent conversation with a Lexington police Sgt when he pointed to the green and there was Congressman west

He was not taking questions but he had plenty of time for the people

He said a few words:

and posed for picture

after picture

after picture

and then more pictures

Although he had a 2nd event waiting he continued to give time

and more time

Even though it was very hot

and the line of people never seemed to stop

Until it was finally time to go but lucky for him there was an Ice Cream Truck Nearby

and as he left I talked to Mo the Ice Cream man who served him

The Take away thoughts

1. In Massachusetts an unpublished appearance by Allen West can draw 5x the number of people as a planned rally promoted nationally by the left on a Friday night just outside of Boston.

2. 30 people making noise is worth two media trucks to the Boston MSM but 150-200 on Lexington Green to see Allen West is not a story worth coverage beyond a blogger with a radio show on WCRN.

3. The left targeting of Allen West has shaken him up so much that he can travel 9 states to the north to visit Massachusetts while Democrats are being advised to stay in their own districts by their leaders.

4. If the GOP is going on offense in Massachusetts this election is going to be an unmitigated disaster for the left.
