Refusing to back down to the SEIU Labor thugs bought and paid for by the White House with Stimulus Funds, our fellow Tea Party Patriots in St. Louis show that we, The Tea Party Patriots, will not be kept from excercising our Right to Free Speech.

The St. Louis Tea Party will hold a press conference and peaceable protest at SEIU Headquarters
St. Louis Tea Party will be protesting tomorrow is to demand justice for Kenneth Gladney, an African-American conservative who was brutally beaten by 4 individuals, at least 2 of whom were identified as SEIU representatives. The beatings included racial slurs and required hospitalization of Mr. Gladney.
As videos show, the attack was unprovoked and no one retaliated against the union thugs.
This attack followed hours of taunts and verbal assaults by SEIU and ACORN members upon citizens gathered to express their views under the First Amendment. We believe this brutal beating is part of an organized plan to suppress dissent to the Administration's planned seizure of the medical industry in the United States.
Anyone who believes in non-violent protest, in the rule of law, in the right of black men and women to express conservative political views, in the right to peaceably assemble, to speak freely, and to petition Congress for a redress of grievances is invited to attend.
The Tea Party specifically requests the NAACP and the ACLU to come out in support of Kenneth Gladney's rights which were trampled by these hooligans. We call on Representative Russ Carnahan to denounce the beating. We call on President Obama to denounce the beatings. We call on St. Louis County to prosecute the assailants to fullest extent of the law.
This question is to all the people who voted for Obama... is this the change you voted for? You have been suckered! No red-blooded American, regardless of party affiliation, race, religious views, etc... could not only ever agree with this behavior. I find it hard to believe any American would condone this type of behavior being promoted and condoned from the Red Shed (formerly the White House).
So if your vote in the past election was not meant to turn fellow Americans against each other, come join the fight in saving our country from the Nazi-like direction we are being taken on!
