Watch: TPMDC’s Videos From Tea Party Scene

November 6, 2009 10:19 a.m.

Over the last 24 hours we’ve written a lot about the Capitol Hill Tea Party extravaganza.

Make sure to check out TPMDC’s photo slideshow from yesterday’s events here.

We also took lots of original video throughout the day – from musical protests against communism to tea partiers heckling police as some anti-abortion protesters were arrested and the crowd storming Capitol Hill office buildings.

Watch it all after the jump.Storming the Capitol:

The anti-abortion arrests as they unfolded – the crowd wondering what happened, then singing “God Bless America” in honor of those arrested and heckling police as one of the men arrested is led to an ambulance.

Musical stylings from tea partiers:

Here’s some pro-health care folks staging a “Billionaires” against health care counter protest. They get shouted down by tea partiers and accused in naughty language of being affiliated with Code Pink.

Evan and I shot the videos, and TPM superstars Ben Craw and Andrew Hymas took care of the posting and editing.
