Anti-Obama Conservatives Take to the Street

Tea Party, Conservative Society for Action, deliver bullhorn speeches on Horseblock Road.

Correction: This story originally stated the demonstration took place in Farmingville. This was in error. It was held at the corner of Horseblock Road and Route 112, which is in Medford.

On Saturday afternoon, a little more than a dozen conservative activists took over the sidewalk on the corner of Horseblock Road and Route 112 in Medford to voice their displeasure with the Obama administration and encourage motorists to vote for the Romney Ticket.

Two groups, the Tea Party of Brookhaven and the Conservative Society for Action (CSA), gathered on the sidewalk holding signs, such as "Save America, Dump Obama," "Vote Freedom NObama" and "I'll take God and Freedom over Freebies and Enslavement," while an activist standing on a flatbed spoke through a bullhorn.

The group also handed out a pamphlet entitled "Unfit To Rule," which lists a litany of grievances about the current administration. The group received an even mix of honks, thumbs up, and curse words from passing motorists.

One lone dissenter stood on the sidewalk with them; a young woman who said she was passing by the demonstration and got so angry she went to Staples and bought a piece of oaktag. She walked up and down the sidewalk with the sign, which read "Vote For Obama, Yes We Can."

Judy Pepenella, of CSA, said the counterprotester was respectful and her group was respectful of her in return. Patch captured a number of photographs of the event. Browse the gallery in this story.

What are you talking about? You are a victim to the rhetoric that it is the 1% vs. the 100%. That is the trick that the left has been using on ignoramuses for hundreds of years. This country was built on the principle that the government isn't meant to be some equalizing force. The Obama administration is responsible for a deeper difference in income between the 1% and the 99% than you ever thought. Wake up and think for yourself.

As soon as I can I will correct the story...my apologies for mixing up the road. I was coming from the renaming ceremony for Lt. Nappi and drove past this scene. Must have gotten turned around somehow. I still think the story is worth mentioning on Sachem Patch simply for the sheer number of folks in the Sachem community who likely drove past the scene. It was indeed at the corner of Horseblock and Rte. 112. I regret the error.

Amen. The GOP has done a great job convincing people to vote against their best interests. Amazing, isn't it?

Let's try this percentage... 100% of EVERYONE who is a politician is a lying piece of crap. Once, just for once, I want to see an honest politician. ( i don't care what party they are with) I'll wait until hell freezes over.

Obama has been the great divider (politically, racially,economically,etc) in this country. We are getting deep and deeper in debt with very little results to show for it. He is the wrong guy because of his views and performance not race. Time to change leadership and bring America together.
