Big Sis Deploys DHS ‘Officers’ To Watch Tea Party At Nationwide Protests Tuesday

May 22, 2013 by  

As Tea Party supporters gathered outside IRS offices Tuesday in planned demonstrations against the agency’s discriminatory thwarting of their attempts at organizing nonprofit groups, armed officers with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) stood watching.

They’re easy to spot at this St. Louis rally:

 

DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano sent out the goon squad to “monitor” Tea Party protests in Missouri, Florida, Indiana and Illinois.

As expected, all the protests went off peacefully nationwide, which is more than can be said for some other high-profile demonstrations that were spared any DHS presence.

Ben Bullard

Reconciling the concept of individual sovereignty with conscientious participation in the modern American political process is a continuing preoccupation for staff writer Ben Bullard. A former community newspaper writer, Bullard has closely observed the manner in which well-meaning small-town politicians and policy makers often accept, unthinkingly, their increasingly marginal role in shaping the quality of their own lives, as well as those of the people whom they serve. He argues that American public policy is plagued by inscrutable and corrupt motives on a national scale, a fundamental problem which individuals, families and communities must strive to solve. This, he argues, can be achieved only as Americans rediscover the principal role each citizen plays in enriching the welfare of our Republic.
