Barack Obama came to San Francisco on October 15 to attend a private fundraiser at the St. Francis Hotel — where he was greeted by an unexpectedly large and boisterous “Tea Party” protest.

(Other groups showed up as well, and I cover the full event at zombietime: San Francisco Obama Fundraiser Protest.)

Since I had never before encountered an actual “Tea Party” (i.e. an anti-Obama protest by conservative, libertarian and/or right-wing voters), I was curious to see if the partiers lived up to their reputation as “extremists” (at least as portrayed by the media). But instead of scary extremism, what I found was a surprising and piercing sense of humor (something that had been mostly lacking from the angry protests of the Bush era).

And so for your entertainment I present this gallery of the 20 best signs at the San Francisco Tea Party. And when you’re done, make sure to visit my full report on the day’s events to get the complete context for the rally.

    I think what we’re starting to see from the Left is a response to Obama’s inability to shut the Hell up. He keeps talking and talking while saying nothing and his supporters seem to be getting genuinely pissed off at him. In contrast, Bush maintained fairly consistent support from his true believers up to about TARP partly because of the Left and partly because he refrained from constantly explaining himself.

    It’s good to see that there’s still genuine humor on Tea Party signs. Once they lose that, they’ll have jumped the shark. A good one I saw from some other protest said something like, “It doesn’t matter what I put on this sign, you’ll still call it racist”.

    BTW, if you have to put an asterisk on your sign (image #6 above) and include tiny print of a list which no one can read unless they come up really close, then you’ve made a bad protest sign.

    Hmmm, nothing at the Tea Party about Kevin Jennings? That’s a mild surprise, given that it’s a recent controversy and that people at other Tea Parties have sometimes strayed from the anti-tax, keep-gummint-small message, with more generic “right-wing” themes like abortion and the 2nd Amendment.

    An even bigger surprise, since this was a San Francisco event: Were there really NO signs on the Off-Topic topic of gay marriage, urging Obama to say something or other about the upcoming referenda that citizens in Washington and Maine will be voting on in a couple weeks?

  4. 4Lincolntf on Oct 20, 2009 at 6:47 am:

    I’m not surprised one bit that there were virtually no offensive/racist signs at the SF rally. At the TP’s I’ve attended (in NC), there weren’t any either. The closest we came were people carrying largely incoherent Truther/Birther-style signs, and none of them stayed more than half an hour or so .
    The fiction of racist/violent imagery being the norm was pushed by a handful of malicious bloggers and then carried on by the MSM.
    As to the Joker sign being considered somehow offensive, I don’t get it. Is it just because the facepaint is white? If The Joker character wore green make-up, would it still be racist?

    There are “Tea Parties” occurring all over the place…yet the “media” does not report them. Be afraid, libs…be very afraid.

  6. 6Throbert McGee on Oct 20, 2009 at 7:16 am:

    As an FYI follow-up to #3, here’s a summary of the upcoming Washington and Maine referenda, and a compare-and-contrast with Prop 8 in California last year…

    In Washington state, Referendum 71 will either affirm or repeal a Domestic Partnership bill, aka SB-5688, that was approved by the WA state legislature and signed into law by the governor earlier this year. The bill “provides that for all purposes under state law, state registered domestic partners shall be treated the same as married spouses.”

    In other words, if the bill is affirmed by the voter referendum, homosexual couples in Washington will have the same status that homosexual couples in California continued to have after Prop 8: durable and comprehensive Domestic Partnership protection that’s essentially “Civil Unions” by a different name, but not the word “Marriage.” On the other hand, if the referendum repeals SB-5688, the law in WA will revert to a weaker form of Domestic Partnership registration — leaving gays in Washington worse off than gays in California were after Prop 8, which merely took away the word “Marriage” without changing CA’s (very strong) Domestic Partnership laws.

    In Maine, the situation is a bit different — the “Question 1” referendum may potentially repeal the same-sex marriage law (LD 1020) that was passed by Maine’s legislature, but if that happens, gays in Maine will have only a weak form of DP registry. (There had been a proposed bill in Maine, LD 1118, that would have strengthened the state’s existing DP laws to make them essentially “Civil Unions,” as had been done in CA and WA. However, 1118 was killed in favor of going-for-broke with 1020, which established Same-Sex Marriage using the word “Marriage.” So if the Maine referendum vetoes 1020, gay advocates in the state will still have the option of trying to push through a new version of 1118.

    In summary, here’s what is/was theoretically at stake for same-sex couples in the respective states:

    Prop 8 in CA was about “same-sex Marriage™” vs. “strong domestic partnership law”
    Ref 71 in WA is about “strong domestic partnership law” vs. “weak domestic partnership law”
    Question 1 in ME is about “same-sex Marriage™” vs. “weak domestic partnership law”

    P.S. I didn’t know all of this off the top of my head before writing this post — I just knew that there was something or other to do with gay marriage coming up in Maine and Washington, but was totally foggy on the details. So I’m just passing along the fruits of this morning’s Google-research. Hopefully some of you will find this condensation useful!

    Throbert McGee: Were there really NO signs on the Off-Topic topic of gay marriage, urging Obama to say something or other about the upcoming referenda that citizens in Washington and Maine will be voting on in a couple weeks?

    Good point. Gay activists seemed to have been the first and loudest in condemning Obama for not living up to his campaign promises.

    Lincolntf: Is it just because the facepaint is white? If The Joker character wore green make-up, would it still be racist?

    It’s because it puts Obama in “whiteface” — that makes it double-reverse racism. “Greenface” would make it double-reverse ETI-ism and the UFOlogists would be out in force.

    Normally not, but since we’re so close to the November elections now, if they were going to bring in the gay-marriage issue at all (which apparently they didn’t), it would be logical to mention the upcoming Maine and Washington referendumziz.

    I work at the Palace Ballroom
    But gee, that palace is cheap
    When I get back to my chilly hallroom
    I’m much too tired to sleep

    I’m one of those “lady teachers,”
    A “beautiful hostess,” you know–
    The kind the Palace features
    At exactly a dime a throw

    Ten cents a dance, that’s what they pay me
    Gosh, how they weigh me down
    Ten cents a dance, pansies and rough guys
    Tough guys who tear my gown
    Seven to midnight I hear drums
    Loudly the saxophone blows
    Trumpets are breaking my eardrums
    Customers crush my toes
    Sometimes I think I’ve found my hero, but it’s a queer romance
    All that you need is a ticket–come on, big boy, ten cents a dance!

    Fighters and sailors and bowlegged tailors
    Can pay for a ticket and rent me
    Butchers and barbers and rats from the harbors
    Are sweethearts my good luck has sent me

    Though I’ve a chorus of elderly beaux
    Stockings are porous, with holes in the toes
    I’m here ’til closing time
    Dance and be merry–it’s only a dime!

    Repeat chorus

    Surely, some odd ones in there, but I don’t that the Union is going to fall.

    Some visual juxtapositions and observations that made me chuckle (includes your caption for reference):

    1) “The Single Payer Now contingent earned bonus points for bringing their own band (and dancing girls as well).”

    Check out the ‘mature’ woman in jeans in the background – ‘Yes…No’ ….’cameltoe’?’

    2) “The anti-ray-gun contingent made an appearance. I was hoping the reverse side of the sign would clarify matters, but… ”

    Maybe they are protesting the sexy showroom figure….

    3) “…I was sorely mistaken. I mean, I’m all against organized stalking too, but who exactly is supposed to be stalking whom? ”

    I think it might be the dude behind her to the right. Or wait, it’s the guy to the left with his back to her trying to look inconspicuous by…. wearing his shirt inside-out?

    4) “With one exception — this guy. While one side of his sign had yer typical anti-capitalist message to impress the girls… ”

    Note the ‘capitalist consumers’ behind him fresh from a round of healthy shopping.

    5) No caption: the mature woman near the end with the ‘Healthcare not Warfare” t-shirt and the “When the world is safe from US then we’ll be safe from the world” sign really underlining her point that she is concerned for all creatures great and small by….huffin’ down that Marlboro.

    I just popped over from Zombietime after checking out the whole report on the Obama Protest in SF. Great stuff, as always. I just can’t check out one of your reports and not offer thanks.

    I aim to please!

    My only regret is that I necessarily must post very infrequently. These reports alwasy take so much time to put together. I’ve decided to hew to my “exclusively original content” approach, rather than put up multiple threads per day on current events.

    It’s harder to develop a “community” of commenters this way, but every blog has to have its own style of doing things, I guess. Sorry I can’t supply more scoops-per-month!

    The chopper is a H-65 Dolphin (a Frenchy chopper) which is often used for LifeFlight but is also used by the USCG. It looks to me as though this particular one has USCG markings. It’s potentially big enough to carry both the regular SAR crew and passengers but I’d put my money one this one only carrying the SAR crew. The SS could easily get an Army or Navy chopper or just charter something for aerial support and recon. It’s not as though Obama would go out of his way to save money on one of his trips by going multi-role with an asset.

    Oh, an observation that I tried (but failed) to post during the Instalanche — I like the photo of the middle-aged woman with the “Vote for freedom, not for gulag” sign, and next to her a young man whom I take to be her son or nephew (just based on body language, not because they look particularly alike). And in the background are some folks who look stereotypically like grumpy/frumpy old Eastern European grandparents* — so it’s easy for me to see this photo as capturing three generations of Soviet-bloc emigres who chose America, with the young man being a 100% Yankee, U.S.-born child of a mother whose family came here when she was just a girl.

    *My mom’s maiden name ends in -ski, and her dad looked not unlike the crotchety silver-haired gentleman in the background of the photo.

    I’m not buying that 100%. Seeing as the H-65′s primary role is SAR, I’d bet it was acting as possible medevac if the need arose. If the SS was playing eye-in-the-sky, they’d be more likely to commandeer from local law enforcement. I’m speculating, of course, but when people see a chopper overhead and start talking about gov’t spying, I tend to be skeptical.

    Look at all that unbridled racism, hate, anti-american ideology, and calls for violence. I am a little disappointed in the lack of uniform signs and the unprofessionalism in the sign making. Seroiusly, how can you be a “real” protest movement without professional premade signs, and maybe some people in outfits doing some “play acting”. And where are all of the swastikas!!!11!! (/sarcasm)

    I was hoping to see pictures from Zombie from a “TEA Party protest” as I have found the reports to be amusing, intelligent, and honest. It is interesting that there wasnt one sign that could be construed as racist or a threat (if it was meant to be or not).

    In the main report you have a picture of someone with a “Stop organized stalking sign” and comment “I mean, I’m all against organized stalking too, but who exactly is supposed to be stalking whom?”. I might be able to help you with what the sign holder might be thinking. You might be aware of Paranoid Conspiracy Theorists (PCTs) and the ideology that there is a “secret organization” out to take over the world to create “a New World Order” (and do many other nasty things like take freedoms away, mass murder, human sacrifice, ect). There are some among the PCTs who believe that there are “gangs” of people “stalking them” in an attempt to intimidate them. Those “people” could be gang members, Illuminati, Knight Templars, Masons, or shape shifting reptilians (who some think are all, or partly, involved in the secret, except to them, plot). That could quite possibly be what the person is protesting.

    I’m not saying that the government was “spying” on anyone — only that the Secret Service, as it always does, was likely surveying the area for any threats. I imagine they were looking for anything that might be a truck bomb heading toward the hotel, and so on. Easier to do that from above than going street by street. Also, I saw at least one definite Secret Service guy in the crowd (with the usual earpiece, dark sunglasses, suit, etc.) looking around for any possible ne’er-do-wells. So I assumed they were above, below and all around us, doing their job.

    That last point is exactly what I was thinking. The presence of an obvious military helicopter would have aroused bad feelings among the generally anti-military SF crowd. So I could easily see them using some other kind of helicopter for surveying the scene for terrorists or whatever, so as not to send all the protesters into paranoia mode.

    Believe me, that copter hovered and circled and flew around the hotel for well over an hour. No way was it there for any other reason than to assist the security of the president. Whether or not it was the Secret Service itself, I could not say for sure. But they at least cleared the airspace for it.

There is no such thing as a “zomblog member.” If you already do have a WordPress acccount, your computer will likley automatically remember your name and enter that in the “Name” field; but it’s not a necessary precursor for commenting that you have a WordPress account.

    Why do they say “single payer”? Who is this mysterious person with so many billions of dollars who is willing to pay for our health care? This person would have to be richer than Bill Gates. Much richer.

    Unless, of course, “single payer” is Orwellian for “the vast majority of taxpayers in the US,” which is a number in the hundreds of millions, and by definition, therefore not single, which means one.

    If you want the US government to tax us and take over the role of an insurance company, just say so. When you feel it necessary to disguise your words with misleading language, that signals that something is very wrong, and you know it.

    There IS a simple way to “reply” to each comment! Simply click the “quote” symbol under the comment in question, and it will put the comment in “blockquote” in the “write-a-comment” box. Try it — it’s fun and easy!

    Also, a little-known feature: If you just want to quote part of a comment, simply highlight that portion, and then click the ‘quote” marks underneath. Just that portion will be quoted in your new comment!

    I think so. Go to WordPress.com, click on “Sign up now,” and when you get to the sign up page, choose your name and remember that if you DON’T want to be burdened with a blog just for signing up, click the “Just a username, please” option at the bottom, instead of “Gimme a blog!” which is the default.

    Then, once you confirm your account, you can go to your account options and add an “avatar,” like mine (which is a picture of Felicia Felix-Mentor in 1937 in Haiti, the world’s only known photograph of an actual zombie).

    The avatars are really dinky, so make sure to choose something bold and visible, and not with a bunch of frilly details.

    Oh, and a key detail:

    When you first sign up on the initial signup page, you must choose a “username” that is only letters and numbers and cannot contain spaces. But do not worry! Because later, when you can access you account settings, you can choose a “nickname” that says anything you want. So, for example in your case, if you originally sign up and are compelled to choose “ThrobertMcGee77″ or whatever, you won’t be compelled to thenceforth use “ThrobertMcGee77″ as your screen name; once inside, you can add the nickname “Throbert McGee” (with the space) and that’s what will appear when you comment (along with your spiffy new avatar!).

    God forbid we hurt the feelings of transgenders while trying to prevent a terrorist attack perpetrated by a cross dressing islamic terrorist with C4 explosives stuck up his ass.

  112. 112Throbert McGee on Oct 21, 2009 at 7:39 pm:

    By the way, one of the “featured articles” on Wikipedia today tells the story of one Mary Toft, an 18th-century English peasant woman who became a celebrity after giving birth to 17 bunny rabbits (all tragically stillborn) — not 17 at once, mind you, but basically one per day over the course of a few weeks, with each labor and delivery being witnessed by professional midwives and physicians.

    It was a hoax, of course, and if you’re wondering how she managed to fool the doctors, her cunning deception went something like this:

    Step 1: As Mrs. Toft lay in the birthing bed, an accomplice would smuggle in a dead rabbit and/or pieces of a dead rabbit, or on one occasion, legs and other scraps from a dismembered cat, plus a hog’s bladder.

    Step 2: “Blimey, doctor, what’s that bright shiny distractin’ thing over there?”

    Step 3: Whilst the doctor’s back was turned, Mrs. Toft would hastily shove the dead rabbit and/or parts thereof as deep into her vagina as she could possibly manage.

    Step 4: A few hours of theatrical “labor pains” before finally spreading her legs and inviting the doctor(s) to have a close-up look at the “delivery.”

    I think she clearly deserves to be recognized as a Patron Saint of Attention Whores, for her extraordinary efforts.

    Fair enough. You were there and I wasn’t and I hadn’t thought twice about it after reading your SS comment in your report. But when someone else brought it up I looked at it more closely and thought, “Hang on a minute”. If you want an eye-in-the-sky and you have basically unlimited resources like the president, why use a USCG chopper whose crew is likely not as well trained or experienced as, say, a CHP helicopter crew in the peculiarities of that particular job in an urban environment? That’s why I’m thinking that helicopter was primarily there to act as medevac if the president has a heart attack or experiences a brain aneurysm after suddenly realizing what a massive fraud he is. Naturally, if the crew sees something wrong on the ground, it’s fair to assume that they would tell someone. Oh, and I don’t doubt that the obvious SS agents you saw were only a fraction of the ones that were there in the crowd carrying signs and pretending to be protesters.

    The funny thing is, I like to watch aircraft a lot and my usually assumption while watching something like a Piper Cub fly over is that 50% of the time I probably am being spied upon by law enforcement (drug interdiction looking for pot farms and meth labs) or that my picture has just been taken by an aerial photography/mapping company. So it’s usually a toss-up on whether I decide to give them The Finger or not. One of my dreams is to some day have someone on Google Earth zoom in on my property and ask, “Is that person flipping me off?”

    No one covers San Francisco rallies like Zombie! Great reporting. Glad to see the wacky protesters are still at it.

    The great political philosopher and prostitute connoisseur, Mr. Charlie Sheen, is a 9/11 Truther of the ultra-nutty type.

    No shit? Man, I’ve been out of the loop for a long time. Never thought I’d see the day when guys like Charlie Sheen and Sean Penn became political activists.

    But, then again, if you can’t trust Spicoli who can you trust?

    Those of you making your mockeries about the austrian-style dancing: don’t be advantage players, remember Obama speaks no Austrian.
