Tea partiers not a Rockwell moment

August 02, 2010

Doug Mainwaring's assertion that the tea party movement is "a Norman Rockwell moment in history" ("Nothing extreme about it," July 29) is a fantasy.

Having personally attended a health care rally in Towson during the summer of 2008, I saw firsthand the outrageous signs and behavior of those whom Mr. Mainwaring claims represent "America at its absolute finest."

The Norman Rockwell artwork that I remember from my youth did not include Hitler caricatures of American presidents.
