MA Tea Party Rally Collapses Over Brian Camenker
Yesterday it was reported that Massachusetts Tea Party activists were going to be holding a rally on Sunday that was going to include MassResistance's Brian Camenker along with several candidates running for office.
But now the event has been canceled because one candidate withdrew due to Camenker's involvement and that set off a chain reaction:
Organizers have canceled a Tea Party rally scheduled for the Lexington Battle Green on Sunday, according to event organizer Jesse Segovia, chairman of the Lexington Republican Committee.
Plans for the event began to unravel Thursday when Eric Dahlberg, a Republican candidate for state Senate from the 3rd Middlesex District, withdrew after learning that Brian Camenker, president of MassResistance, was also scheduled to speak.
“Some consider MassResistance a hate group,” Dahlberg said. “I don’t want to be within a mile of an event that gives someone like that a stage.”
Camenker called Dahlberg’s reaction “stupid.”
Dahlberg said he supported what he considered the main objectives of the Tea Party movement: lowering taxes, streamlining government and personal responsibility.
“As far as I can tell, MassResistance has absolutely nothing to do with any of that,” Dahlberg said. “Of course, I support freedom of speech. But I am exercising my freedom of speech by deciding not to appear."
