Here is my Tea party gallery. I like the dog’s sign best.

I really didn’t care of the 1-20-13 Tee shirt. I never liked the 1-20-09 shirts. It seems whiny to me.

People who pretend that this is something that it is not are making a big mistake.

Update: Jules Crittenden was there too.

Update 2: Michelle Malkin has a roundup

Update 3: BTW feel free to download any and all of these photos if you want them, if you use them in a post please credit Datechguy blog. Yes Captain I know I took your Zorro picture without permission two years ago when I did the podcast interview with you. That was wrong and I’m sorry about that. I still think you looked cool in the costume and I’m a big Zorro fan.

Diane Korzeniewski puts it better than I do concerning Pseudo Catholics that are the darling of the media:

Dissidents are trying to create a “designer religion” out of Catholicism in wanting to make it conform to their individual desires. It is a world from which Our Lord wants to set us free. It’s a world whose ways are in conflict with God’s ways. At it’s core is often sexual promiscuity under the guise of sexual “freedom”. Think about the teachings that dissidents would like changed and it will often lead right back to this so-called right which is nothing more than a right to sin and offend God, by choice.

Much easier to convert sin to “no sin” than to actually change one’s behavior. She continues.

They often want the Church to accept homosexual behavior. The Church embraces those with SSA, but cannot condone homosexual acts any more than it can condone heterosexual acts outside of Sacramental marriage. Others want to change the Church’s teaching on abortion, or euthanasia, contraception and other “life” issues. Dissidents know where the Church stands on all of these issues, but they don’t agree and feel that Holy Mother Church ought to bend with every wind of doctrine that comes with each new generation. As scripture tells us, Jesus is Truth. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever – do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings. (Hebrews 13:8-9). Hence, there cannot be several versions truth any more than there can be several versions of Jesus.

That’s the thing about truth. It is what it is. That’s why political groups need spin doctors.

Read her whole thing and remember this in closing:

The plan never included a set of keys for every individual to “bind and lose” on their own, or through opinion polls, or with the flow of a given age. Remember, it was by popular opinion that Our Lord was nailed to a Cross!

The emphasis is mine but if there was ever a line worth emphasizing this is it.

The American thinker notices something odd, that is unreported:

Rude and shaggy punk rockers who sneer at their president as “a fraud and an a**hole!”, who diss their national icons as “pr*cks” and “murderers!” have recently been arrested for attempting to visit a black civil rights activist who is being tortured in prison for quoting Martin Luther King in public.

And the reaction of the arts community is…

“Should’nt all hip people be outraged by this?..How come I haven’t heard about this in Rolling Stone Magazine, MTV, VH1, Time, Newsweek, Entertainment Weekly, People, Vanity Fair, OK, InTouch, InStyle, ABC, CBS, CNN etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.??

One guess why

It’s very simple. The insulted “president” is named Fidel Castro, the dissed national icon is named Che Guevara, and the black civil rights activist was jailed and tortured for campaigning for civil rights in Cuba for Cubans.

Need I say more?

This is my problem with the left. They will protest the US, they will attack George Bush but they would sooner shoot themselves then dare say a word about Fidel. This is the nasty secret the reason why I don’t respect so many on the left. Their answer to this outrage will be America is worse or its all America’s fault.

The guy who is imprisoned and tortured by Castro, the actual real thing? Can’t touch it. The whole Anti-anti business all over again.

When it all falls then our friends on the left will pretend that they were against it all the time, we were “all” against it. It never fails.

…it would not be considered offensive.

Oh and note this from the story:

“I talked to the parents who are coordinating the talent show, and they feel it’s inappropriate and potentially offensive,” Llewellyn Principal Steve Powell said.

When asked what was offensive about Dru’s skit, Powell refused to discuss it.

“I won’t say why it’s inappropriate,” he said. “I’m not saying anything to The Oregonian. Why? Because I don’t want to.”

This is the principal talking not the kid. No wonder the comics won’t make Obama jokes.
