On Wednesday, the Walker County Delegation of the Rainy Day Patriots (RDP) announced that they were taking their message directly into the homes of the people of Alabama with their own television show which will air weekly on the the Alabama News Network.
The Chairman of the Walker County RDP Delegation, Roger Hill, said in a written statement, “Folks we finally did it! With the guidance and professionalism of Larry Lee we have produced and will air our first ” WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE” TV program.”
The 30 minute program will air on ANN Alabama News Network, Charter Cable Channel 80. The first episode will air this Saturday at 3:30 PM. The episode will re-air next Wednesday at 6:00 PM and again on Thursday at 6:00PM.
Chairman Hill said, “Actually, I think Larry did a really good job working with folks that are “Closet Patriots” and do not do this for a living. Watch the program every week at the same times, a new program each week.”
According to Hill, the first week’s program will feature State Senator Greg Reed (R), State Rep. Bill Roberts (R), and Walker County Tea Party membership chairman Stan Brandon. Hill thanked Susan Stephens for her presentation on the controversial Common Core Standards.
The Rainy Day Patriots are active across central Alabama and are among Alabama’s most active Tea Party groups.
The Tea Party movement rose out of the opposition to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (better known as Obamacare). When the Affordable Care Act passed the Congress in spite of its grassroots opposition, Tea Parties were organized across the country to advocate for smaller government, lower taxes, and fiscal responsibility.
