Tea Parties. A CONSERVATIVE effort. NO violence reported.

I was wondering if it was just me or if others noticed.

Thousands of primarily conservative people participated nationwide with no violence. Yet, a single group of primarily liberals may be frought with violence.

This is my observation. Information is readily available on the internet.

The question: Why do you think this is? What are your thoughts.

ATTENTION CONSERVATIVE BASHERS: Bash away, just make sure you answer the question okay. Thanks.

  • What did you expect? Conservatives UNDERSTAND the Constitution and the the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    What do you mean by that.

    And why would there be any violence in a protest to stop increasing taxes?

  • I think conservatives think about the consequences to actions before said actions are taken (i.e. arrest and criminal record). Not all, just most (likely like most liberal protesters). Conservatives aren't big on protests, so when they turn out it's not to make bad examples of themselves. JMO.

  • The TEA parties had people from all political backgrounds.

    Oh and when liberals protest, who do you think incites the violence? Answer: NOT THE PROTESTERS.

  • Geez anon, pull the stick out! Some people are conservative and tend to vote according to their social liberal views. Doesn't make them a democrat. Get over yourself and answer the question. Or are you capable?
