Passions were ablaze at a Tax Day Tea Party event held on the steps of the old Florida Capitol, with protesters holding signs that read, "We vote with bullets," "Fire Congress," "9/11 was an Inside Job" and "Return to the Constitution."
We found a crowd of less than 500 protesters and a slate of speakers who knew the Tea Party "buzz words" and how to pander to its audience.
Note that the "we vote with bullets" sign (if it actually existed) was not the sign photographed and displayed in this article.
This was an attempt to cavalierly delegitimize and dismiss any legitimate concerns this group, and groups like it, may have have.
Pathetic attempts like this to kookify this movement, however, will not work; in fact, they will simply cause more people to take a legitimate look at what is making people angry.
