Conservative online media mogul Andrew Breitbart had strong words for counter protesters at Saturday's Tax Day Tea Party rally in Madision, Wisconsin: Go to hell!
Breitbart's comments came as he introduced Sarah Palin before a contentious crowd that included both loyal Tea Party activists and union supporters still angry over Republican Governor Scott Walker's budget policies.
"The Tea Party has been the most peaceful, law abiding, clean up after themselves group in the history of American protest,"Â Andrew Breitbart claimed before launching into his rage filled tirade.
Sarah Palin dedicated much of her own speech to a failed attempt to win over counter protesters. "He's not trying to hurt union members," Palin said of Walker. "Hey folks, he's trying to save your jobs and your pensions."
Media reports indicate that union supporters far outnumbered Tea Party enthusiasts at Saturday's dueling rallies. Â In one YouTube video, Palin's voice can barely be heard above the of chants emanating from pro-union protesters. That would explain whyÂ Andrew Breitbart was so flustered. His hate filled rant was caught on video and posted online (see below).
