Dear Readers: As “Star Wars” is an iconic American movie, quoted by many science-savvy blogging mavens throughout the USA, I wanted to give a hat-tip to Darth Vader today in relation to the Tea Parties and say: Impressive. Most Impressive.
Central Valley: The Central Valley Tea Party in Tulare had 12-16,000 fired up patriots for their July 4th event!!! Tea Party groups from across 7 counties joined together to show Sacramento and Washington the focus and message of the movement. Details can be found on the ABC News report by clicking HERE.
San Francisco: There were 100 Tea Party patriots, not including kids or dogs. An observation from Sally —
We had a group called America’s Budget Deficettes…doing a routine, marching in a Rockette style line…each one holding a number so that standing in a row, they represented our deficit…$13,000,000,000,000. It had a huge impact. I’ll send you pics.
Bollywood here we come.
San Diego: The San Diego July 4th Tea Party Mission Bay drew a good crowd: approximately 400. Those that wanted to be there were highly motivated citizens, because parking was very challenging. Thank you to the San Diego Tea Party Meet Up Group for organizing this event. Please continue by coming to the July 11th and July 17th events.
A report from the event by Alvin Hernandez Revilas
I actually got to attend! I forced myself to get there “early”, about 9:30AM arrival time. Wound up parking on Fiesta Island and hiked to the event, carrying one dozen fake pitchforks.
The rally was great and the impromptu sign waving on the street curb grew like a wild fire. Originally, Jeff wanted me out there to be a landmark, so people could see where we were. Half an hour later, my “landmark” of one person became a clone of Midway Drive on April 15th. Wow….
Temecula: There were a couple hundred patriots at the Temecula July 4th Tea Party; pictures can be located by clicking HERE. These citizens stood in the hot sun and got a ton of support from thousands of people driving by. God Bless them!
Humbolt: From Gwen —
We had about 125-150 people at our event. Not as many as we would have liked but the people who participated enjoyed it immensely. We were the biggest entry in the parade with 3 floats, lots of flags, and Uncle Sam, Lady Liberty, Betsy Ross, and 6 or 7 Signers of the Declaration. We were a bit hit in the parade. The parade made the front page of our local liberal newspaper but no mention of our organization. Go figure. We had a booth in Eureka about 20 minutes away and they had a very large crowd and our booth was very busy all day long. A very successful day. We did hand out flyers regarding July 17th and we pushed information on health care.
Instapundit has a wonderful compendium of July 4th Tea Parties from across the nation, which can be found by clicking HERE.
And to this report, all I have to say is “Your Lack of Faith Disturbs Me“.

Here is a little publicity and a big shout-out to the people of Baton Rouge, who had 500 people at their July 4th event.
37,000 at the Dallas Tea Party! Again: Impressive. Most impressive.
