Tea Party Australia Style! No Carbon Tax Rally

Our Australian cousins are fighting the same liberal mentality we are in the U.S.!

Hundreds turned out in Canberra and other cities on Wednesday to protest a “Carbon Tax” which is virtually the same as the planned “Cap and Trade” tax our Democrat Congress tried to ram down our throats.

Worse, the prime minister, Julia Gillard, ran opposing the tax and is now in favor of it!

Needless to say the people are outraged!

And, naturally they are being labeled ‘extremists‘ and accused of carrying ‘offensive‘ signs, does that sound familiar?

We cheer our Australian cousins and fervently hope they are victorious!

  1. Thanks for the link. 🙂

    Of course, the government and the media, despite it being a completely peaceful rally, are calling us extremists.

    Out of all the thousands of attendees, they choose to focus on one – one – poster, whilst conveniently forgetting the S11, G20, WTO etc. protests (incredibly violent and vitriolic protests) we had to endure during the Bush/Howard years.

    Utter hypocrites.
