Thank you for this post. Most illuminating to see Tietz not only participating but organizing and actitvely rabble-rousing this unsavory bunch. It's like this demonstration took all the unrational malcontents, brought them together and gave them our leaders as scapegoats. Hate to say it, but it reminds of the rise of the Nazi party in post WWI Germany.
Wow. Yes. There he certainly is leading the chant. I'm sorry, but he never presented himself in this way during his campaign. Did he? I think a lot of moderate Republicans in this town were hoodwinked by him. Crazy.
It fits with his anti-minority campaigns. This borders on sedition. The people in this mob are not patriots.
The guy with the derogatory Obama, Granholm, and Pelosi signs in the first video is a pal of Janice Daniels. He's Sterling Heights City Councilman Paul Smith and he has come to at least one Troy City Council meeting to defend the Mayor at public comment.http://www.clickondetroit.com/news/news/Sterling-Heights-City-Councilman-Paul-Smith-under-fire-for-offensive-signs-at-2009-Tea-Party-rally/-/4714498/16006966/-/im7o80z/-/index.html
