Hawaii’s Tea Party partakers, filled with a sense of patriotism despite their demonstrative stance against government spending, waved flags along Kamehameha Highway in Hilo on Saturday.
Usually gathering for tax day and the 4th of July, the Tea Party in Hawaii has been making it a point to support the military and remember 9/11 – politics aside – since the conservative movement began a few years ago.
Ninole resident Geoffrey Molfino tells Big Island Video News how it is of utmost importance to remember the day that shook the country in 2001.
Another rally was scheduled to take place at the same time in Kona. The west side tea partiers also planned a repeat Patriot Day gathering on September 12th in Kona.
