American Patriot Lord Monckton

April 16, 2010

Hey, check this out. Lord Monckton was one of the heralded speakers at a DC Tea Party rally yesterday. Wonkette provides us with the photo… and then there’s this terribly scratchy audio below. Dave Wiegel as the scoop and the Huffington Post has more. Also covered at The Way Things Break and DeSmog Blog. The audio is nearly unbearable, but if you go to minute 2:50, you can hear Monckton’s apologia about why a British Lord would be at an American Tea Party rally. (I mean, seriously, is there no appreciation for history here? It’s not even like a simple irony, as might be the case if Monckton were any other foreign national. He’s a stuffy British Lord, for chrissakes. The Tea Party movement is predicated on the 1773 rejection of the Crown.) At any rate, he loves freedom. I guess that makes him an American.
