re: #581 The Other Les

There was an incident at the NYC Tea Party. A black male with long hair dropped a package in the middle of the crowd and ran off. Police were summoned. Apparently the package turned out to be harmless. The crowd was well-behaved. I saw one young man walking through the crowd with a sign that said, “Face it. You lost.”

At the first NYC Tea Party a couple of months ago, a young woman stood at the entrance to the park with her third finger extended, cursing us. We were only a couple of hundred at that time. A large crowd actually increases the politeness of the counter-protesters. If they were rude, they’d provoke violence upon themselves.
