Tea Parties for Two in Des Moines

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Remember that CNBC reporter, Rick Santelli, who went off about all those bailouts? To protest the spending, he called for tea parties like they did back in the old Boston tea party days. It looks like, at least as of now, Des Moines may host one of those tea parties, actually two of those parties within four days of each other. They seem similar, but not.

One group seems to follow Glenn Beck’s 9 12 project. It seems a little more focused on re-establishing certain moral principals, protecting freedom, adhering to the constitution, etc. The other group seems to focus primarily on financial issues, like reducing spending and cutting taxes.

Here is the tv story I did on this. And here are the details of the dueling tea parties:

Tea Party #1 April 11th 11am in front of the Iowa Statehouse (I don’t know if there is a website for this. I’ll keep checking.)

Tea Party #2 April 15th 10am www.desmoinesteaparty.com

Here is that clip for Santelli just for fun:

    There’s also a Tax Day Tea Party planned for noon in Sioux City on the river front at the Anderson Dance Pavillion. Protests will be held all across the state and all across the country – not just in Des Moines.
