This is not one of those moments in life when words are superfluous. This is one of those moments when words, logic and factual statements just don’t cut it because they’re not received. Or perhaps understood. Both?
I went to the Wasilla Tax Day Tea Party Rally. Partially out of curiosity, partially because the former governor of the state and former mayor of this town is one of the figure heads of the ‘movement’, but mostly to snap some pictures of the signs. They are 10% amusing, 50% inaccurate, and 100% horrifying.
Evidently facts can be made up and yet take on truth the more you repeat them. It’s true. They become true. The outlandish statements on some of the signs are always 100% true. Fair. Balanced. True. Believe it. It’s true.
Without further convincing, I present to you: a Tea Party. Wasilla style.
Stay safe, and be good to each other.
