Via Michelle Malkin:

The Cincinnati Tea Party organizers told us it was going to be big. And it was. Organizer J. Binik-Thomas e-mails this evening that 5,000 folks turned out for the protest and more than 1,600 people signed a petition to ask local governments to reject porkulus funding.

Cincinnati Enquirer reports:

Thousands of people filled Fountain Square this afternoon for the Cincinnati Tea Party, a grassroots-effort designed to show their disapproval for bailouts and the massive federal stimulus plan.

People wore Revolution-era costumes and raised anti-bailout signs with messages like “Give us Liberty, not debt” and “No more bailouts.”
Sean Lynch was one of thousands who navigated the crowd.

“I’m frustrated with the way things are going in Congress. They need to remember that they work for us, and right now, we don’t approve,” said Lynch, of Colerain. “This is not a Democrat thing or a Republican thing. It’s a government thing.”

  1. Great Post! This is so awesome the Rightosphere is spreading the word. For some strange reason, I could not find anything in the MSM about them.

    It is good to see some many people waking up and speaking how the feel about the government. We are really seeing history. It is great to see liberty and freedom at work. I guess those Framers really knew what they were doing in the 1780s.
