But what's really hilarious is that Jim Hoft, in his out-of-breath rant attempting to show how "hip" and "tech savvy" the tea party is, admitted that the Quincy Police called in the riot squad. Here's what Hoft had to say:
The Quincy Police Department released a statement today following the embarrassing incident yesterday when they called in the SWAT squad to quash the peaceful tea party protest outside the convention center during Barack Obama’s visit.This is in stark contrast to the tea party conspiracy theory that had been repeated over and over since yesterday that it was "Obama" or "Obama's team" who called the riot police, against the wishes of the local police force. To wit, I give you:
Lobbyist Carl Bearden (also with Americans for Prosperity):
Gina Loudon (links to post that claims Obama sent in riot police):
Special Dana Loesch Bonus: check out this hilarious claim from Loesch:
Loesch, being the top-notch schmournalist that she is, gets the inside scoop on who *really* ordered the riot police out from Doug Edelman, a guy who believes that President Obama is not a citizen of the United States.
Congressional candidate Ed Martin, painfully wrong for the 2nd time in two days:
And of course, Gateway Pundit Himself:
My personal theory: they're trying as hard as they can to distract from the fact that they only got 150 people to protest Obama.
