Orlando Tea Party Largest To Date

Orlando Tea Party 2009-03-21 12:53

The Orlando Tea Party at Lake Eola was a spectacular patriotic success and the largest Tea Party to date! The estimated crowd was nearly 6,000 attending! Ages of attendees ranged from newborns and their parents, young elementary students, teenagers, families, proud military veterans, and retirees. Bud Hedinger, talk show radio host at WFLA 540AM in Orlando emceed the event. Featured speakers were:

Special thanks to Lisa Feoreli, and the staff of the Bender Construction company who organized the entire event with the help of Bud Hedinger, and WFLA 540AM. Glenn Beck, who was in Orlando this week was unable to move his schedule around to appear. That did not dampen the sunshine and the enthusiasm of the conservatives attending from around the state and even from across the country!

Music was provided by Lloyd Marcus and the Macpherson trio. Marcus’s song “American Tea Party” a hit on the Internet made the people stand up and cheer.

At the event, Bud Hedinger asked each person in the audience to sign the Orlando Tea Party Constitution which was 50 feet long. The long lines of people wanting to put their John Hancock on the important parchment paper circled around Lake Eola. Monday, the Orlando Tea Party Constitution will be heading express mail to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Can’t wait till Obama gets home from his campaigning to read all of the signatures!

Special quotes:

Jon Gutmacher: “2nd Amendment: The rightof the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed upon! Remain vigilant!”

Lawrence W. Tudor: “So much wealth has been destroyed in the mindless rush to perdition. Free people have power that is more powerful than any other government! Find your voice!”

Andrea Shea King: “Washington, D.C. is the enemy.”

Kristinn Taylor: Joe Biden and Barack Obama need to apologize to Barbara West.”
Taylor attacked RINO Governors Charlie Crist and Arnold Schwartzenegger, clumping them in the same shameful category as Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Dick Schumer, Olympia Snowe, Patricia Collins, and Arlen Spector. The crowd booed and hissed in agreement. Taylor’s admonishment to the Democrats and RINO’s: “Remember what you sow in the wind, you will reap in the whirlwind.” High-energy and passionate, Taylor inspired the audience with a quote from Ronald Reagan, “Inflation is the cruelest tax of all.” He asked those listening avidly to be proud of the beliefs and do not hide themselves behind masks like the anti-Americans who wear scarves over their faces when parading at protests.

Lisa Feroli announced that the next Tea Party in Orlando could be held late summer.

  2. Way to go Orlando !!! Now if every state can double, triple or multiply that number by 100’s we’ll have a movement that Washington and the President must take notice. For those Americans like myself that remember the Viet Nam War and Peace protests of the late 60’s and 70’s…hundreds of thousand strong all over the country….think about it…we are in serious times my friends which call for serious organized peaceful protests. If all unemployed Americans protested taking the streets in Washington DC, their own home states there would be millions !!!
