Chattanooga Tea Party to protest presidential visit

Posted: Updated:

A Chattanooga Tea Party will stage a protest Tuesday when President Obama visits the Amazon fulfillment center.

"This is his opportunity to come out and hear from everyday American citizens and hear their grievances,"  said Mark West to the Times Free Press. West runs the Chattanooga Tea Party.

The protests will begin at noon Tuesday and go until 2 p.m.

Speakers at the protest will charge up the crowd, but West promised that the language and the signs will be family friendly, according to the TFP.

The group quotes the constitution for their reasoning behind the petition: "...the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

The rally will have a number of public speakers including Ben Cunningham, Nashville Tea Party; Jeremy Jones, Local Businessman; Ben Brandon, civilian marksman and 2nd Amendment defender; and Matt Collins, Campaign for Liberty.

Attendees are urged to bring  family friendly signs, flags, and water.
