Saturday's polling of the American political heartbeat, by the Town Criers, would have made Frank Lutz and Shawn Hannity jealous. The response to the Tea Party’s troop carrying Gadsden Flags, and politically aggressive signs exposing Obama, was explosive. [See “A look at Town Crier’s history” August 26, 2013 at http://www.examiner.com/review/a-look-at-town-crier-s-history Ed].

The Criers got off to a slow start because of the rain. It rained all night in St. Augustine and continued to rain up until about 1:30 in the afternoon. When the rain eased up to a light drizzle, the Criers took off on foot from the Village Inn to the historical district. Immediately, the gloom of the soggy start lifted, as car after car passed the Criers beeping their horns and waving thumbs up. Yes, there was ‘Singing in the Rain’ because, again, even in the rain, pictured on the right, a cross section of the American people proved that the Tea Party Movement is loved, respected and is expanding!

The Town Criers, in St. Augustine, have the pulse of “We the People” every weekend and report back to you, the political vibrations that they pick up. Because of the weather, the stream of tourists was less; only about
4000 to 5000 people saw us. Hundreds took pictures of our messages and posted them on the Internet. The Town Criers engaged about 40-50 groups in conversation. The public’s response was explosive in spite of the rain.

Snap shot of the day’s event:


1. Criers left the Village Inn at 1:30PM and immediately were cheered by beeping horns and thumbs up;
2. Cheered along the way towards St. George street by families at the playground, on Francis Field;
3. Encountered a family who lived under Communism in Czechoslovakia. The mother said, “We left Communist Czechoslovakia in 1986 to come here (USA) and now Communism is coming here”;
4. A Tea Party leader from Massachusetts reported to the Criers a steady increase of ‘friends on Facebook’. It is up 40% since September. He was amazed at the attention the Criers got from the tourists and the numerous pictures being taken;
5. Millennial generation engaging the Criers continued as noted in the past weeks;
6. Hundreds of tourists asked to hold our anti-Obama signage, then posted their own pictures on Facebook, congratulating themselves on their courage for doing so;
7. A group of about 20-25 blacks engaged the Criers with chants of “Obama! Obama! Obama! Obama!”
8. The highlight of the day was a bus load of Hispanic tourists from Miami who ran towards the Town Criers chanting “Tea Party! Tea Party! Tea Party! Tea Party!”

The truth about minorities
What the two political parties don’t talk about

The concept of the “Democratic Plantation” is never discussed by either party. Lyndon Baines Johnson’s (LBJ) “Great Society” marked the turning point for Afro-American voting patterns. Prior to the Progressive’s “Great Society” black people tended to vote Republican in greater numbers. The Democratic Party in those days attracted supporters of racist ideologies, such as the KKK. Consider LBJ’s comments regarding the people he professed to be helping:
“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since
they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their
upityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little
something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference……… I’ll
have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.”
—LBJ

“Fortunately, those days are behind us,” a Town Crier spokesman commented. “However, the destruction of family values, the abortions of black babies and economic enslavement prevail as a consequence of progressive programs directed at the poor,” he concluded. According to the Common Sense Conspiracy website, “… the concept of the Democratic Plantation is not about political parties, despite the name. It is about the system of government and what their true mission is. The “enslavement” that is suggested by the Democratic Plantation, no longer applies to just African Americans, but to all Americans. If you are not part of the rich elite, you are at risk for being part of the plantation. It’s no longer about color of skin, racism, or bigotry. It’s about a New World Order, a state of control and the concept that patriotism is no longer a feeling of pride for your country, but a feeling of loyalty to a government that provides for you.”

The Town Criers report that, for the past three years, their engagement with blacks in the historic district has been less than they would like. The majority of black people simply ignore the Tea Party presence. It is assumed that they are loyal to Obama. Today, a group of 20 to 25 blacks engaged the Tea Party to show their support of Obama’s ‘plantation’. It appeared to be a group of tourists who had just disembarked from a trolley and were on St. George Street, for no other purpose than to enjoy the sights. Over the chants of, “Obama, Obama, Obama” a woman declared, “I’m ready for it, I’m ready for Communism!” The Town Criers were carrying a sign which defined Obama’s Communist Goals. It should be noted, however, that the number of blacks responding favorably to the Tea Party values has been increasing. “We pray that they will be freed from their economic enslavement,” the Criers said. It is interesting to report that within several minutes the Town Criers encountered another group of minorities with a completely different experience.

Miami Hispanic Tourists Run to the Tea Party!

As the Town Crier Report has been saying for the past three years, the American Hispanic voters love the Tea Party. “They are the most enthusiastic of all the visitors that greet us every weekend.” said Dave Heimbold, Media Chair of the SATP. “They come unglued when they see the Gadsden Flag and the St. Augustine Tea Party signage. But this is the first time a group ran to us with abandonment. They simply love the Tea Party Movement. They have lived under Communism in Cuba, Venezuela and elsewhere. They know that Obama is a Communist. They don’t need Karl Rove and the Washington crowd to cater to them. Pandering with amnesty will not get their vote. They simply need some Spanish advertisements that say, “No, Comunismo, aqui!”
