Rallies on the Right and Left

Our intrepid hero Zombie presents a telling contrast of the Tea Party in Searchlight to that of a recent “anti-war” protest in Los Angeles.

In both cases, citizen journalist bloggers were on hand to document the proceedings with eye-opening photo essays:

El Marco: Tea Party Express rally, Searchlight, March 27

Ringo: Anti-war rally, Los Angeles, March 20

The Jawa Report looks over the images, and finds some of them lulzworthy:

Really kind of sets the tone between the rhetoric and emotion behind the left vs. the right, huh? So much for the violence of the hateful right.
