Today's "Imagine if the Tea Party said it" moment

Imagine if this was related to the T.P. and Second Amendment rights:

One significant and somewhat surprising finding was that Occupy Wall Street supporters believe violence is sometimes necessary against the government, said Phil Hardy, a Benedictine assistant professor of Political Science and one of the survey organizers.

Though the Occupy Wall Street movement has been largely peaceful, 58 percent of Occupy Chicago survey respondents agreed that violence against the government is sometimes justified.

Well well. Imagine that. Oh, and this is surprising to whom, exactly? As John Nolte notes, "Only to those without access to television and the Internet. Only to those in the MSM with an agenda who dare define this mob as 'largely peaceful.'

So, is your message that the Tea Party core should have made it clear that this is okay and is their message also, or just that Big Media has different standards (which are only encouraged by retreaters and equivocators on the Right.)

Actually, anyone who believes in the principles of the American Revolution ought to agree with the statement that violence against the government is sometimes justified. Hell, that is the essential premise of the Declaration of Independence.
