I met Dave Rades through a Facebook group to which we both belong. Rades is an unapologetic liberal who is unafraid to speak the truth, even in a hostile environment.
In 2010 he “infiltrated” a Tea Party April 15th tax day rally after making several phone calls letting the organizers know that he was coming and that he would like an opportunity to speak at the gathering.
In the end, they agreed to let him speak without ever asking him about his political leanings. Had they asked, he would never have been welcomed at the rally, much less allowed to take the mike and speak.
