St. Louis Arch Tea Party Draws 1,500 Protesters! (Video)

1,500 protesters braved the cold (in the 30’s) and wind today at the St. Louis Arch for the anti-Spendulus rally.

The local television predicted 100 protesters would show up.
Despite the cold and the timing (11:00 AM on Friday) the turn out was respectable.


Here’s a photo sent to me from Darin Morley who was at the protest today.

Local Fox Channel 2 posted video of the protest at the Arch:

Bill Hennessey organized the rally. It was announced Sunday on The Dana Show on 97.1 FM and the local media actually reported on it.
Patrick Leahy of Top Conservatives on Twitter and Dana talked more about Tea Party wave on her show.
Jamie Allman from 97.1 made it down to the Arch today.
It was a great success.

After listening to several speakers including a few local conservative politicians the crowd walked down and dumped tea in the Mississippi.


Local news channel KSDK reported on the protest.
