From The Political Carnival VIDEO: Teabaggers Gone Wild:

My pal Larry Halstead attended a Tea Tantrumers' rally last November, but only got around to editing it last night. I'm awfully glad he did. Watch all 10 minutes of it. Wow.

On November 22, 2009, The Tea Party Express landed in the High Desert Community of Barstow, CA after a nation wide tour that started in South Carolina. This poorly organized, poorly attended event was held in a public park but that didn't deter one teabagger from threatening to kick my ass for using my camera to take this video including his threats. Guns, global warming denying, Christian claims, eco terrorism, and mostly a whole lot of lunacy all wrapped in the American flag.

I've seen this Kevin Jackson (warning, link goes to his wingnut web site) before on C-SPAN's BookTV where they made him out to look sane promoting his book, unlike the clip here.

I'm sure he's making Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity and the rest of them that have this game down pat as well quite proud.
