Tax Day Tea Party, organizer for April 15 rallies

With only one week left before citizens in 2,000 U.S. cities take to the streets in protest of government spending this Tax Day, will ACORN and the Huffington Post crash the party?

ACORN spokesman Charles Jackson told WND his group will be rallying on the same day.

“ACORN is going to be engaged in a series of rallies across the country on April 15 in support of the priorities outlined in President Obama’s first budget – investments in education, health care, and getting Americans back to work,” Jackson said.

He continued, “This is the first we’ve heard of these ‘tea parties’ and, frankly, a gripe-fest by a bunch of conservatives whose preferred economic policies got us in this mess in the first place is of no interest to us.”

Some say it would be a very difficult task to take over a grass-roots movement so large. The American Family Association is reporting tea parties for 1,856 cities Wednesday, and WND has confirmed information for more than 450 protests.

Fox News’ Neil Cavuto reports “over-caffeinated crashers” plan to show up at Tax Day tea parties. He said he has received reports of “very well-organized infiltrators trying to mix in and rain on this parade.”

In addition to ACORN rallies for Tax Day, the Huffington Post has organized an online sign up for anyone to attend the events on behalf of its organization as “citizen journalists.”

“The Huffington Post wants to have citizen journalists at as many of these events as possible,” the website states. “If you think you’d be interested in attending one of the Tea Parties and reporting back to us with dispatches, photos, or video, click here to sign up. We’ll contact you shortly with further instructions.”

A link takes readers to a sign-up page where the Huffington Post explains, “On tax day, April 15, there will be protests with conservative movement leaders across the country, railing against government and high taxes. HuffPost is developing a citizen reporting team to keep track of this movement.”

Cavuto asked Mark Meckler, organizer for the Sacramento tea party, if he is concerned about infiltration threats.

“We don’t take them seriously at all,” he replied. “It’s not that they don’t exist. We expect people to attempt to infiltrate. We expect people to attempt to disturb what we’re doing. But the reality is that this is a very broad-based grass-roots movement. There is no leader of the event at the top. There is no individual event that they could disturb that could cause us a problem nationwide.”


Mark Meckler, organizer for Sacramento tea party

Meckler said he invites everyone to come to Tax Day tea parties.

“We don’t care whether they are from ACORN, the Huffington Post, Daily Kos, we want them all there,” he said. “We’re excited to have them all attend.”

But Cavuto warned that he is receiving early reports that infiltrators will try to make the tea parties look like they are fringe group efforts and, in extreme cases, racist undertakings.

“I think I would liken it to what I tell my kids when they’re on the field in a soccer game. You let your game speak for itself,” Meckler said. “The people understand what these movements are about. The people who are involved understand that they are not racist. They’re not fringe. They’re not even partisan.

“These are events where we’ve got people across the board – Democrats, Republicans, conservatives, liberals, Libertarians, you name it,” Meckler continued. “Everybody’s coming out to these events. We’re not worried about these folks polluting the event.”

Meanwhile, a Google Maps list shows hundreds of locations of citizen tea parties – so many that the United States is nearly hidden behind a sea of red markers.

Many organizers are encouraging tea party attendees to bring a cell phone and call the president, 202-456-1414, and Congress, 202-224-3121, while at the rallies.

Organizers of the Tampa tea party produced this short video encouraging citizens to fight massive government spending by joining April 15 tea parties in their own cities:

In response to the group’s YouTube video, one person wrote, “Hey conservatives!! Nice to see you finally learned to use a computer. Looking forward to filming you wasting tea like you wasted our retirement funds. See you Tuesday! (sic)”

The counter-protester or “infiltrator,” identified only as “Texpeare,” appeared to have been misinformed – as Tax Day is Wednesday, April 15.

WND has been hosting its own tea party forum so citizens may exchange ideas, information and announcements about the “revolution.” After reviewing various website protest listings from Tax Day Tea Party, Facebook and e-mails from many readers, WND found more than 500 tea parties scheduled for upcoming months including the following:
