(TeaParty.org) – We the Tea Party stand with the good patriots of Boston. Today’s senseless and tragic terrorist attack on the Boston Marathon is an abhorrence to liberty and freedom. The 238th Annual Patriot’s Day commemoration of the anniversary of the Battles of Lexington and Concord, which signifies the starting of a revolution, has been marred by a new type of enemy.
This enemy lurks in the shadows, reaching out with a death grip to harm innocent men and women as they go about their everyday lives. The cowardly acts of these terrorists are despicable and antithetical to what America stand for. They are an affront to Judeo-Christian principles, which keep this nation great.
If left unchecked, these terrorist acts will demand armed citizens assist in both law enforcement and peacekeeping for the reestablishment of domestic tranquility.
The Tea Party hopes and prays that unspeakable events like this will not be repeated. However, after witnessing the horrific events in Boston, it is evident that an unarmed nation should not even be a consideration.
An armed citizenry can help stop terrorists even before such cruel and inhumane actions like the bombing of helpless citizens take place.
Today’s first responders–police, fire departments, hospital staff and other agencies–are to be commended for their swift and courageous actions. While these men and women race fearlessly into the face of unknown tragedy, they should feel confident that the American citizens have their back.
The American people must not back down.
We must not go silently into the night because of an abominable and violent attack against fellow patriots. Just as the 9/11 attacks, Pearl Harbor and other cowardly assaults on America shocked our nation, our response was firm and it was strong.
As Americans must stand our ground and say “NO!” to anything that would weaken us or take away our rights to defend ourselves, our neighbors and our country.
Our prayers go out to all of those affected by this horrific tragedy and to those who have fallen victim. The Tea Party pledges to do everything we can to assist law enforcement and able-bodied citizens to find the perpetrators of this vile, disgusting act against humanity.
We shall not go quietly in the night. We will take our stand and let the world know: you don’t tread on America.
