Governor Palin Lights Up Searchlight Tea Party (Updated with Video)

Saturday, March 27, 2010

Governor Palin spoke before a crowd estimated at about 20,000 today in Searchlight, NV, Senator Harry Reid's hometown. Her speech drew applause throughout and further energized a crowd that was already fired up.

At the start of her speech, she joked about writing on her hand, something she has come to call "the poor man's version of the teleprompter." Then she got down to business--God, military, energy, taxes, freedom.

And yes, she took on the lamestream media's ridiculous lie that she and other tea partiers incite violence.

Politico reports:

“When we talk about fighting for our country, let’s clear the air right now about what we’re talking about,” she told an estimated 20,000 tea partiers gathered for a rally in a windswept desert lot about four miles north of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s tiny hometown. “We’re not inciting violence. Don’t get sucked into the lame-stream media lies.”

Palin said “violence isn’t the answer.” She said “our vote is our arms” and encouraged activists not to be discouraged by the passage of the Democratic healthcare overhaul bill last week, but rather to channel their energies into defeating congressional Democrats who supported the legislation.

Contrast that to Harry Reid's supporters today who allegedly threw eggs at Andrew Breitbart and the Tea Party Express bus. Read about that here and here. I would sit around and wait for the lamestream media and Left-wingers to cry out in outrage against this behavior, but I have things to do and can't wait that long.

In spite of the violent behavior against the tea partiers, nothing dampened the mood. Governor Palin's speech certainly did not disappoint. The thousands of patriots gathered left more determined than ever to take back the country they so dearly love.

For now, you can watch the governor's speech by clicking here. I will post the video right here on MotivationTruth soon.

I love your posts. I urge caution though. Politico is not to be trusted. I hate that I am beginning to anticipate their evil deeds.
Here is what I mean:
Fox estimates 10,000 and reports 10s of thousands
Local authorities say 8000 at the time she is speaking with incoming roads jammed and sealed off.
Tea Party plays it safe and says they expected 5000.
So why would Politico now be saying 20000?
I forsee a set-up...but maybe I have been 'burned' by the media too many times.

I was at scranton u today and saw a banner that read " go out and set the world on fire". They'd have a field day with that one.
