July 4, 2012 ! Independence Day commemorating the 236th HAPPY Anniversary of the Adoption of the Declaration of Independence
Pamela Geller (Activist, Author, Commentator) and Co-Founder of the Freedom Defense Initiative with Robert Spencer was introduced by Gary R’nel and thanked afterwards by Teri Adams President of the Independence Hall Tea Party.
The #ows nut-jobs had a what was supposed to be a HUGE National Assembly on July 4th. Loons from across the country were supposed to gather here in opposition to the American Dream that was realized and celebrated by generations of immigrants to these shores. NOT by these malcontents.
It was a pathetic and predictable turn-out limply camped out in protest at one end of the Independence Hal (opposite Constitutional Hall). This was around 11:45 AM

The anti-American #OWS Insurgents also threatened to deny Pamela Geller her Constitutional Rights to Free Speech. Not today, “Gunga Din”. Inside Independence Hall Convention Center, they were met with polite and determined resistance: “No reservation? No admittance.”
And INSIDE, the Independence Hall Tea Party and fellow patriots met and celebrated America’s 236th Birthday!

As did the Termini Brothers of Philadelphia, in thanks for the gift of American Freedom.
Giuseppe Terminin arrived in 1921 and has made a tradition of this beautiful gift that greeted us as we arrived around Noon on the Fourth.
