Tea Party Protests Obama in San Francisco

San Francisco's Nob Hill was home to many of the famous 19th century "robber barons," the crony capitalists of their day. So it is natural that Pres. Obama would hold fundraisers there. Thursday (yesterday) afternoon, he was at the Marc Hopkins Hotel, a luxury hotel named after a railroad robber baron. In the evening he moved to Nob Hill Masonic Center. The San Francisco Police allowed protesters to assemble along the opposite side of California Street with one section for the Tea Party and one for left-wingers. Hundreds arrived for the Tea Party, seen here standing in front of Grace Cathedral:Here is another view of the Tea Partiers:
The nun, shown above checking text messages on her cell phone, was among those outraged by Obama's decision to require churches to provide abortifacients to their employees.

Good liberals were, of course, incensed that Gov. Brewer would have the audacity to wag her finger at Obama last month. At the San Francisco Weekly, one local reporter, Erin Sherbert, responded with a piece headlined:
Obama Coming to San Francisco, Where Nobody Will Wag Their Fingers in His Face
Naturally, the SF Bay Area Patriots responded by making the theme for this rally to be "wag your finger" at Obama. The red plastic fingers seen below were labeled "Nobama":
The crowd on the Tea Party side, as seen above, was packed shoulder-to-shoulder. The left/liberal/occupy side of the gates was less well attended:
There was a brief flurry of activity on the left side when the pro-marijuana protesters arrived:
By the smell of it, they had been partying before hand. They left not long after they arrived. One can only speculate that, suffering from a case of the munchies, they had to go in search of food.

The occupy group was represented, for example, by this man:
Lastly, this woman, from the Tea Party side, tells Obama to "keep your (lack of) morality off my church":
This protest was organized by the San Francisco Bay Area Patriots and supported by the North Bay Patriots (Marin County) and MyLiberty (San Mateo County).

This is awesome! Tea Party is alive and kicking in the bay area. Yay!

Remember when everyone brought flip flops to political rallies in 2004? Maybe those red foam index fingers should be the flip flops of 2012. It's a way of standing up to Goliath, of saying we're number one, or American first, etc.
What do you think?

Great pix! I was there with the Catholics protesting Obama's HHS Mandate, but it is always an honor to stand next to the Bay Area Patriots!

I had no idea there were any tea partiers in the Bay Area; thought only left-wing radicals lived in San Francisco. Glad to see I was wrong and that the tea party is not dead, as most elitists hope.

Good to see those out on the "left" coast are making us proud.

Good stuff! The left has awakened a sleeping giant with their ridiculously unAmerican nonsense.

"Conservative" and "Tea Party" are different words for the same thing: the patriotic silent majority and awakening.

Here are the three main points to address and expose to defeat the Red Army by simple truth
nd persistence

-Education/Spiritual Crisis

-Oligarchic Shock troop Methods of Marxism/Socialist "change" community organizer

-Economic ignorance
