Want to honor the victims of 9/11 properly?
Go to your local 9/11 or 9/12 rally and BURN a copy of the PATRIOT Act..

Download NOW, print NOW… then attend and burn… REMIND any and all of the confused people in the tea parties know who the real enemies of freedom are…

There’s a rally here in Cleveland or closeby. I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THE LOOK ON THEIR FACES! You guys think I’ll get arrested? Hopefully there will be more than enough cameras to stop any kind of rude cop beating, by me.

Anyways, I just want to let everyone know that if you don’t hear from me for a few days, it’s because I’m in the clink for exercising my constitutional rights, just like that misguided fool in Florida has with his dimwitted argument… to burn a Koran. People like us may not have the media attention that endlessly distracts, but at least I know I’m doing the right thing when I send a message by burning the mere pieces of paper that symbolize real deaths to liberty, deaths to America, by my own behemoth government at home. The message: You wanna tussle? Then it’s fucking on… LET’S ROLL. Rather than complaining about some death cult version of Islam ruining a storybook so they can get some attention for their whack-job ideas of infamy, maybe by burning the PATRIOT Act some in the tea party will take stock of what’s really going on around them.

H/T reddit for awesome ideas to build on

UPDATE: For some reason, the tea party in Cleveland is going to DC for the 9/12 event and there’s no local events. What a bust. That’s okay, I will try to plan this kind of spontaneous thing better in the future and otherwise endorse this fully as a group event. Power in numbers!

LATER UPDATE: We are experiencing a new surge in new faces around here, some of you will choose to carry the flame of liberty with us while others are simply here to read and DIE. Our ranks grow daily…

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.

    1. All the tea party events around Cleveland are on 9/12 …from what I’ve seen. Guess I have to wait another day?! NO! They are all getting on a bus and going to DC… fuck.

      Seriously, I am down with doing this, gotta find the when and where still.

      1. Next time, call your own press conference in front of the federal building downtown and just do it. There does not have to be an event going on organized by others to be effective at making your point.

        Ganted, Tuscaloosa is smaller than Cleveland, but I used to be able to get front page newspaper coverage, radio interviews and TV interviews just for protesting in front of the Post Office by myself on April 15.

        1. Well, I still want to make this happen, but alas I don’t have a printer and Staples wanted $117 to print the whole thing (ridiculous).

          I think we should start a new top level post on the subject and catapult this back into the ACTION category where we as a group come up with a PLAN.

  1. And can we get Congress to stop giving warm fuzzy names to every piece of legislation they want to pass?
    Like, who would ever vote against something called THE PATRIOT ACT? A non-patriot.
    I’m expecting Obama to trot out something called the SAVE THE ORPHANED PUPPIES (and economic stimulus) ACT.

  2. For everyone: whether you burn a usapatriot act or whatever you do, do something for freedom on 9/11…remember, the terrorists hate our freedom and are trying to take it away.

  3. sadly the difference between china and america is becoming hard to tell. the trick with all these ‘acts’ is whatever the title is, usually is the opposite of what it does. patriot act = steal our liberties disguised as being ‘patriotic’.

  4. The only downside I can see is that the patriot act stuff will just look like any other bound paper to a camera, so I can TOTALLY see this getting captioned “tea partiers burn korans at rally”

      1. Steven — couldn’t you just burn, say, the title and chapter summary pages (I think that’s like the first ten pages of it) in effigy, as it were, of the whole thing? Certainly gonna save you a good dime.

        Good luck on this, man.
