250 gather at anniversary Tea Party rally

February 28th, 2010 by master

Anyone see the Tea Party rally yesterday just outside the Northgate Mall parking lot? From our partner The Seattle Times:

An anniversary “tea party” rally drew about 250 people to a rainy corner in Northgate on Saturday afternoon. Not bad for Seattle, or as one participant called it, “Lib-Ville.” …

Some passers-by honked. More kept their windows rolled up, gawking through the drizzle at protesters waving “Don’t Tread On Me” flags and anti-tax posters.

The protest came exactly a year after the movement went national, but area participants seem to prefer keeping their ideas to themselves most of the time:

In Seattle, the movement’s events are something of a coming-out exercise. …

Participants hemmed and hawed about whether they were willing to have their names in the newspaper. Doug and Linda Larsen retired to Vashon Island six years ago. They get along with their more-liberal neighbors, but “We don’t talk politics much,” he said.

Do you think Seattle’s left-leaning politics make it hard for its more conservative residents to speak freely? What do you think about the Tea Party protest taking place in our neck of the woods?

Yelp: You MUST get the green bean wok. It is the best thing I have ever tasted. Seriously. Everything that we have tried here has been top notch.
Urban Spoon: We haven’t had a thing on the menu we don’t like and their food seems healthier than most. Plus, it’s more authentic than a lot of places around town.
