We are in Boston today, staying at what claims to be the oldest continuously operating hotel in the United States. Wendy and I are taking some personal time between the 8-28 Beck gathering and the 9-12 March in DC. We did not dare stay in Washington as obviously something in the DC water drives people crazy if consumed for any length of time.
We went on a trolley tour of the town today. The history that surrounds this place is overwhelming to a patriot. From “Bunker Hill”, the site of the Boston Massacre or Paul Revere’s house, there is so much history to absorb and appreciate. The Granary Burying Ground is a block from our hotel and contains the remains of great Patriots including Sam Adams, John Hancock and Paul Revere. The 5 victims of the Boston Massacre are interred next to Adams. This includes the first black man to die in the Revolutionary War, Crispus Attucks.
Yet, along with feelings of patriotism and appreciation for the sacrifice of our forefathers, I was saddened by what Boston has become. The majority buys into cradle to grave entitlements mentality. They have turned socialist. The streets are dirty and the panhandlers aggressive. It reminds me of San Francisco. That is not a compliment.
There is a Puritan meeting house built in 1729 called the “Old South Meeting House.” This is where our beloved Tea Party began. On December 16, 1773 a meeting was called here to protest the tax that was to be charged on 30 tons of tea that was in the holds of the British ships moored at nearby Griffin’s Wharf. It is said that a few thousand people showed up and a heated debate ensued as to what to do if the ships did not sail back to England with the tea on board. CBS reported that there were only 50 people in attendance (okay, I made up that last part). When it was made clear that the ships would not depart with their cargo intact, Samuel Adams addressed the crowd and said, “Gentlemen, this meeting can do nothing more to save our country.” It is rumored this phrase was a code for the 60 members of the Sons of Liberty to disguise themselves as Mohawk Indians and advance to the wharf and destroy the 342 crates of tea.
We had 500,000 people attend the Glen Beck gathering Saturday. It was peaceful and respectful. We left the grounds a LOT cleaner than the streets of Boston or San Francisco are on a normal day. I believe that we will have at least 1.2 million people show up again this 9-12 to March on DC. In November, we will vote the liberal/progressives and many RINOs out of office.
If they refuse to leave office, or steal elections with the aid of ACCORN types (such as Al Franken in Minnesota) or if the Administration continues to attack states such as they have Arizona, there may be blogs that just say, “Ladies and gentlemen, words can do nothing more to save our country.”
Few in Boston would answer Adams’ call today. Most won’t respond should the above modified cryptic call to arms be made. However, there are Oath Keepers, Texans and several million others all over this land who will not live on their knees. Progressives are warned. A tsunami is coming.
