    Andy, I believe this T.P. group splintered from another, moderate group. I bet this group was created by outsiders. This demonstration couldn’t have been large, because I was in the area and was totally unaware of any protest going on. The Common and surrounding area were packed, but 99% had nothing to do with these protests. I didn’t even notice any police presence.

    Moderate group that’s what less anti gay?
    The tea bags may have had a good idea in the beginning but like most republican groups sold out to the religious right

    The fanatical religious based rightwing groups have a habit of co-opting ‘conservative’ organizations the same way fanatical far left loons have a habit of co-opting many sensible liberal [progressive] groups.

    I live right in the city of Boston, have for almost 2 decades, literally a 5 minute walk to where this took place, and I heard nothing about it. Same thing happened when Palin and the T-baggers were doing rounds when she was running for VP. This was held in what is called the ‘Back Bay’ of Boston, one of the most gay-friendly parts of the whole state. These people are damn fools.
