In response to an SEIU-sponsored labor rally this weekend in Atlanta, Tea Party activists sent out an alert on the right-wing website Freerepublic.com asking for armed protesters to counter protest. The SEIU demonstration was one of dozens being held at state capitols around the country in solidarity with public employee unions in Wisconsin.
The right wing website called for “freedom-oriented folks” to show up as balance to the “ravings of the passengers aboard SEIU thugbus, which is scheduled to vomit forth its stooges. . .” They also encouraged members to be “flexible” in their attire due to local gun laws.
