Minnesota Tea Party Patriots Come to North Minneapolis to Discuss Politics

Share Article

Residents of north Minneapolis have seen a variety of political sideshows held at local non-profit organizations under the guise of “voter education” or “community information” or topics like light-rail, foreclosures and education. “None of these meetings have produced jobs, city or state contract compliance or opportunities to assist with capacity building in a mostly poor minority-ethnic community,” says co-organizer Donny Allen.

A Town Hall Meeting to discuss Politics in Your Community

The Minnesota Tea Party Patriots Movement will hold a Town Hall Meeting in the heart of the Black community in north On Saturday (4/10/10) at a Black owned and operated business - Sunnyside Restaurant located at 1825 Glenwood Avenue North, (the corner of Glenwood and Morgan Avenues North) Minneapolis, Minnesota 55405. The Tea Party Movement has its first in a series of meetings titled, “A Town Hall Meeting to discuss Politics in Your Community” from 10 a.m. to 12-noon.

The Minnesota Tea Party Patriots are a group of politically active people, mostly Conservatives, from all parties that are fed up of big government; unsustainable entitlements; and no delivery of jobs, economic stimulus and a complete disregard for the future for the well being of Americans in the United States.

Donny Allen, who is also the editor in chief of the controversial blog, “The Independent Business News Network” says, “It’s time to flip-the-house! The conservative movement and the Republican Party of Minnesota and America have wasted too much time attacking President Obama and his policies. I understand the historical significance of the United States having its first Black president, but that ‘hope and change’ has not trickled down to Black America. The Tea Party Movement provides a platform to launch conversations that will lead to change through grassroots community engagement.”

Local mainstream media has portrayed the Tea Party Movement as racist and not wanting to include Black Americans in the movement – that’s not the case. Influential Black people from across the USA have joined the Tea Party Movement in pursuit of a system that addresses the needs of the many – not just bankers and the automotive industry.

“We must come together, Black, White, Yellow and Red – Republican and Democrat; Young and old to ‘Flip the House’ to make sure we (the community), have elected officials in office who are concerned with the successful measurable outcome of our friends, families and co-workers. North Minneapolis and its voters have been taken for granted, run-over, bamboozled and hustled. It stops now,” says Toni Backdahl, Organizer of the Minnesota Tea Party Patriots.

At this event we will discuss the upcoming 2010 local races that will have a huge impact on the next two years in Minnesota unless we act now.

This meeting will go into detail on local races to include the Minneapolis Public School Board, congressional races and state races.

This event is open to the public and all parties and candidates are welcomed to attend.

The event is free to attend – we ask that you support Black business and purchase a breakfast for $9.95.
