As Barack Obama was speaking to a stacked audience inside the Quincy, IL Convention Center, a Tea Party was taking place outside. The makeup of the tea party was very similar to the countless others. Peaceful conservatives, Christians, and anti-Big Government patriots who believe in the Constitution.

Courtesy of Sharp Elbows, we see a very disturbing reality unfolding. In addition to there being absolutely no reason to believe the protest was going to turn violent, a majority of the participants were senior citizens.

What to do, what to do.... Well, someone apparently thought it appropriate to position snipers on the roof and march in some riot police in formation. No word yet on whether the May 1st illegal immigration protests are going to be treated with the same preventive measures but based on how potentially violent the Quincy, IL tea party could have been, perhaps S.W.A.T. teams will be sent in to protect the illegals from the angry mobs of Tea Party protesters.

A significant problem is being exposed for Obama and the May 1st protests could exacerbate it. That problem is imagery. The imagery of the tea parties juxtaposed with the imagery from the Arizona protests demonstrates the problem clearly. Regardless of talking points, media corruption, and who thinks they control the agenda - in this case, the executive branch of the U.S. government - the power of perception via visual imagery trumps all. Tack onto the aforementioned juxtaposition, the message communicated through pictures of riot police positioned in opposition to elderly American citizen patriots petitioning their government for a redress of grievances while peaceably assembling.

This is not about the threat of violence from the Tea Parties. This is about Barack Obama's fear of the truth, which is coming out and cutting him deep (metaphor). A prime example is this seen in the signs in the photos on display in Quincy. Obama's administration has been conspicuous in its attempt to control the message.

This explosion of the Tea Party movement is increasingly threatening his ability to do that. It is visually and clearly obvious that the threat to the Obama administration is not a phyiscal one from the Tea Party. It's the threat of the truth being exposed that has him terrified.
