Riot Police Called On Quincy Tea Party
UPDATE: Dana Loesch

2010 April 28

Obama was speaking in Quincy, Illinois today and the police came in full riot gear.  Why?  Because Grandma wearing red, white and blue to a Tea Party protest is so dangerous, don’t you know?

From the local paper, the Quincy Herald-Whig:

Before Obama reached the Oakley-Lindsay Center, his motorcade was greeted by a group of about 200 tea party members at the corner of Fourth and York. The group sang several patriotic songs, and a group of armed security personnel was called in at one point to quell the crowd.

Jim Hoft writes:

From our sources– A call came from inside the convention center to the Quincy police. The Secret Service unleashed the riot police on the tea party patriots.

He has more photos at his post of your neighbors and mine, smiling and carrying the American flag.  This would be ludicrous if it wasn’t so indicative of a paranoid mentality that brooks no dissent.  Take those cameras to a Tea Party, folks!

UPDATE: Dana Loesch posts:

Who gave the order to call in the riot police on protesters? Word is that Secret Service from inside the venue and the presidential team pressured local law enforcement, who were against the idea. Local cops were overruled, I’m told by various sources, including a few members of local press. Moore reported that she overheard Secret Service telling the riot squad to “push them back, out of sight.

She has another video from Michelle Moore.  You can hear the Tea Party protesters singing The Battle Hymn of the Republic.

In addition to this information a commenter at Hot Air told me that it must have been a cooperative local government as the President cannot legally give the mayor orders. Then a little while later, lo, and behold, yet another commenter linked to this column from several months ago at Big Government:  Another Tale of Government Corruption: Quincy, IL Edition:

When John Spring was campaigning for re-election as mayor of Quincy, Illinois in the spring of 2009, his primary selling point to the citizens of Quincy was that he had close, personal relationships with people in Washington D.C. (especially Senate Majority Leader Dick Durbin, D-Illinois and his old high school football teammate, U.S. Rep Phil Hare, D-Rock Island) and he could deliver the goods for the many pie in the sky projects he had in mind for the city.

JustMary mentioned in the thread that yesterday Megyn Kelly showed the contrast between the Arizona riots and the peaceful Tea Party protests.  All of this information taken together makes me wonder if this venue wasn’t carefully chosen to set up some protest equivalency between Quincy and Arizona because the Obama administration knew the local mayor would cooperate.

    It really looked like that crowd needed quelling. What better way to drive home the point to the Tea Partiers of the overreach of the Obama administration?

    One thing I have learned to do about the news. When an item like this is picked up by a blog, it can be hard to find additional news on it as the MSM ignores it. Do a search for the location + newspaper to find the name of the local rag. The Quincy paper didn’t have much, but they did mention this. I wonder if they realized how ridiculous it is to write about armed police quelling a crowd whose only transgression they could find to report was singing patriotic songs!

    Gerald Celente calls it again, 2 January 2010:

    Gerald Celente is back with his predicitions for 2010 and many people think that Gerald Celente from the Trends Research Institute says a lot of things that come true and that he accurately predicts what will happen.

    Another trend he discusses he calls ‘not welcome here’, which means that due to the exploding population there is now not enough jobs and not enough resources to go around, and so countries will start kicking out illegal immigrants when jobs become scarce and countries can’t handle everyone who lives there.

    I noticed some comments at Gateway Pundit about the marching…

    Quincy IL looks like a really small town. I doubt if the riot police get a lot of practice there. They probably saw some relatives in the crowd, and some of them may have felt very foolish in all that gear.

    This was an exercise in ridiculousness. Did some WH staffer say they needed the riot police? Where or from whom did this paranoia come from?

    Fair enough…but no one on THIS board does. And certainly not MFG.

    But yes, McCain and a whole slew of Repubs in Congress (and the Sacramento State House) DO have the disease.

    But THIS year, the enemy is everyone with a (D) in Congress, for unless we take back the Chairmanships, control of the Agenda and Calendar, etc, then we are doomed!

    Excellent piece from Doc Zero on the clear metaphor for our country that our best transatlantic passenger boat is becoming……

    And before anyone says “People who speak in metaphor should shampoo my crotch..” (Jack Nicholson, “as good as it gets”)

    Read the article, it’s sad. You could read it as the country instead of the boat, and it would still be accurate……

    And a quote from InstaPunk:

    Irony of ironies. Back in 1997 I saw an analogy between the fate of the United States and my country. Little did I know. It was abstract then. It’s literal and direct now. The scrapyard is imminent. I was worried then. I’m desperate now. They’re killing our country and soon we’ll get to see a vivid metaphor of that reality.

    More from Quincy Herald Whig:

    The participants were vocal but well-behaved as they stood on the north side of York Street across from the OLC….

    There were a few tense moments when the crowd moved west down York toward Third Street after the president’s motorcade arrived. A Secret Service agent asked the crowd to move back across the street to the north side.

    When the crowd didn’t move and began singing “God Bless, America” and the national anthem, Quincy Deputy Police Chief Ron Dreyer called for members of the Mobile Field Force to walk up the street.

    The officers, mainly from Metro East departments near St. Louis and dressed in full body armor, marched from the east and stood on the south side of York facing the protesters.

    There was no physical contact, and the officers did not come close to the crowd, but there were catcalls and more than a few upset tea party members, including a woman who shouted, “This is communism!”

    The only thing the Community Organizer can’t stand are communities that are organized–but not by him.

    But Newsom also has formed an “Arizona Boycott Workgroup” to analyze if and how an economic boycott could backfire on San Francisco businesses. For instance, the city does business with a company that accepts and processes payments in Arizona. There’s concern if the boycott is made uniform, 2,500 San Franciscans could lose their jobs.

    Groups like the San Francisco Convention Bureau and the city’s restaurant lobby also worry about a reciprocal backlash.

    “Would Arizona and other states that are more conservative than San Francisco retaliate and stop sending conventions to San Francisco?” asked Kevin Westly of the Golden Gate Restaurant Association. “Certainly in a recession, we don’t want any retaliation.”

    TLS- I feel this one in my gut. Inasmuch as Obama would like us to believe he totally ignores Fox because he is too “above it all” to watch……he is obsessed with the station as a whole. He always seems to have some smug one liner to say about them, usually having some eerie resemblance to a recent show. I don’t think this was a test, I think it was a gift wrapped story for the lsm like I said- just to spit in Megyn’s face AND because immigration rallies on May 1 will surely show a stark contrast to the teas, he had to put a spin on it beforehand. So here is my lsm line on immigration rally day “As we have just seen with the teas, there is riot police here at the immigration rally” Whatever wording they choose, mark my words they will include this tea party, casually generalizing to make it seems like riot gear is common at the teas, easily sugar coating any violent behavior on the part of the 5/1 rally people.

    Juan Williams is hosting the Factor tonight. He is as bad as Laura Ingraham is good. I checked out after 7 minutes.

    JM – there is one major problem. Where is the violence with the Tea Parties – aint none. The same can not be said for the other side. The left always has violence and disruption going on.

    Like the one thread where the police really don’t police the Tea Party events. They are there but KNOW there wont be any violence from the Tea Party protesters.

    Here in Columbus, we have police officers (off duty on their own time) participating in the Tea Parties. There is also under cover officers in the crowd as well. At the last rally, police had to talk with the counter protesters to keep them in check.

    Those in the middle know this. That is why they can relate to the Tea Parties and NOT the left.

    #89 as soon as I watched the FNC video, I knew you had revealed the root to what seemed like an otherwise random act of stupidity. I think you are right on here. That is why I think you should re-thread it as a question, of course. Because one, I had no idea until you linked it together, as I’m sure others won’t and two, you should get credit for that story/link first before someone else posts it. Otherwise, visitors who don’t read all the comments won’t see the connection. (And besides, if you post it, I bet HA has it within the hour 🙂 )

    TLS, I’ve seen some commenters elsewhere make the connection. They didn’t mention Megyn Kelly, but they thought of the possibility of a photo-op equivalency setup after the AZ riots.

    Epic Fail.

    If this is going to be a recurring response from the Obama Admin they are playing a dangerous game indeed — for themselves. I don’t care how many appeals O makes via OFA. The minority vote alone cannot carry the day for him in the midterms. If 15% of the white vote peels off by either not voting or goes GOP his party is cooked.

    So keep alienating the seniors, and the white males, and I suppose white females eventually.

    drdog – ask yourself this, how many seniors USE to vote democrat because of Social Security and medicare that will now vote Republican?

    The big boogie man was that the Republicans were going to cut social security and medicare BUT who was the ones to ration health care to seniors?

    The democrats may well be dead in the water with no way to re-start their motor.

    Obama had nothing to lose here. Either nothing happens but he provides footage for the lsm, or he insights the Teas (his vision, not mine)and it becomes truth.

    The thing Obama didn’t take into account is that Jim Hoft would be there today. Quincy IL isn’t that far from St. Louis. Jim and Dana are both in the St. Louis Tea Party–Dana is a cofounder. That Tea Party is incredibly active and on the ball.

    INC – I agree and that is why they will escalate it. Glenn Beck and others expressed concern that “NO VIOLENCE” take place at the Tea Parties.

    They also expressed concern about infiltrators. We had one, he was pointed out, the organizers stated he was not one of ours. Michelle Malkin had photos from our Tea Party showing the guy and how we reacted.

    But I expect them to continue but to bring violence from within. That is why it is important to have cameras and video. Plus police our own. If someone starts something, grab them and turn them over to the police. The truth will come out if they are one of ours or one of theirs.

    Very true. Obama is just itching for a Kristlnacht moment so he can let the LSM loose on the Teas.

    More info from Jim Hoft that gives the lie to the Quincy newspaper quote in #27:

    We did everything the local police asked. We moved where they directed us. We moved when they asked us to. We double-checked that we were in an acceptable place on the street. We did not disobey the police and stand and sing God Bless America as some kind of protest. We stood on the corner and sang because we were told it was OK to stand on the corner and sing. That report is a complete whitewash for the Obama Administration’s overreaction to old ladies with American flags.

    And, if the Whig-Herald wants us to post video of the entire event… We have it and We will post it.

    I didn’t read all 111 comments so I apologize if I’m restating someone else.

    To me this just looks like they were hoping to create violence. They wanted some good pictures of rabid tea partiers throwing rocks and battling with police at the presidents speech, so they marched out the riot police first to make it happen.

    Well sorry Obama we are much more civil than your kind.
