The Tulsa Tea Party today was a success! At its peak, I estimate attendance was around 400 at Veteran’s Park near downtown Tulsa. Most everyone held signs, flags, pork rinds, or tea!
We had media (local ABC and CBS, at least) and AM radio in attendance. AM radio KRMG and KFAQ helped get the word out and were there with support today.
The even opened with a few words from the citizen who organized this in true grassroots fashion, Jai Blevins.
We also heard from newly elected Tulsa County Republican Party President Sally Bell; local radio personality KRMG’s Joe Kelley; Randy Brogden who is a very conservative Oklahoma State Senator; and closing speaker, a Local Economist, Author, and Minister, Jerry Robinson.
Local radio personality Chris Medlock of KFAQ AM radio and several other obvious media-type people were present.
A highlight of the event was when the group mixed together teabags and also pork rinds into a garbage bag to symbolize what they say is too much pork in the so-called “stimulus” package.
