Las Vegas NV tea party, August 31, 2009, Tea Party Express, Citizen Wells report, Sports Center of Las Vegas, Nevada, Will CNN and MSM cover this tea party?

Yesterday, the Citizen Wells Blog posted the announcement of a Tea Party to be held today, Monday, August 31, 2009 in Las Vegas, NV. We have a reporter on the scene and will provide updates as we get them. CNN is supposed to have their CNN Express news bus on the scene in Nevada and hopefully other media outlets will cover this story. Will Harry Reid pay attention?

“Rally Held Against Big Government
Las Vegans Hold Tea Party Rally

POSTED: 5:48 pm PDT August 31, 2009

Hundreds of people protested in Las Vegas against what they characterized as big government.

 Those who turned out at the Sports Center of Las Vegas Monday for the Tea Party Rally criticized what they call big government — things like bailouts and deficit spending — as they waved signs.

“CW,  We were at the Party from 8:45am to 2:00pm.”

“We were there first.”

“We were not allowed to be by the grandstand,… due to our signs.  THEY WERE ANTI OBAMA.  The organizer said that the media would have a hay-day with them.  (ridiculous to say the least….. XXXX (my husband was HOT!)  I WILL SEND YOU PICS OF THEM”

Here is the announcement from yesterday:
“ATTENTION NEVADANS: We need your urgent help!
 
We here at the Tea Party Express have been informed by several national news media outlets that they will be on hand to cover our “Tea Party Express” rally in Las Vegas, Nevada this Monday, August 31st at 11:00 AM.  The rally will be held at the Sports Center of Las Vegas (located at 121 E. Sunset Road).
 
We know this is not the most convenient time for some people to attend a rally, but we simply must have a huge crowd on hand.  To help underscore why this is so important, consider this:  CNN is planning on having their CNN Express news bus.  Some news outlets will be broadcasting live.  We can’t afford to have a rally with a small crowd on hand (especially given how successful the “Tea Party Express” rallies have been so far these first two days).
 
So we need your help.  If you live close enough to Las Vegas to attend the rally (even if you have to take an early lunch) then PLEASE make it to the rally.  Load up your car with as many people as you can.
 
If you live too far away, or absolutely cannot attend, then we need your help to get the word out.  Forward this email on to everyone you know.  Post messages to online discussion forums and blogs.  Call anyone and everyone you know who lives in or near Las Vegas.
