The Tea Party thinks we're in danger

I normally try to stay somewhat clear of politics on this blog, but this was too funny and weird not to mention. I saw a list of tips for Tea Partiers visiting DC floating around Twitter this morning, and one of the tips stood out, emphasis mine.
If you are on the subway stay on the Red line between Union Station and Shady Grove, Maryland. If you are on the Blue or Orange line do not go past Eastern Market (Capitol Hill) toward the Potomac Avenue stop and beyond; stay in NW DC and points in Virginia. Do not use the Green line or the Yellow line. These rules are even more important at night. There is of course nothing wrong with many other areas; but you don't know where you are, so you should not explore them.
Well, at least we won't be seeing any Tea Partiers up in the neighborhood. There's a Tea Party rally on the 28th in DC.

Do these unfriendly people think we are in danger, or we are the danger?

It's worth pointing out that the guy who wrote the piece is Bruce Majors, who's forever posting libertarian crap on the Mt. Pleasant yahoo listserv.

One wonders how scared he is when he's out walking the block, or waiting in line at the Giant.

I'm gonna sign this as Anonymous, because Bruce is apparently very vindictive: http://tpmcafe.talkingpointsmemo.com/talk/blogs/t/r/trollalert/2010/03/troll-alert-bruce-majors-nasty.php

Of course those are dangerous areas. Way to live in fantasy land. DC is a cesspool, as are all major cities.
