Tea Party flag flown at Grammy Awards during Muse performance

Gadsden/Tea Party Flag

They say “art imitates life” but I was still surprised to see the Gadsden Flag on the screens behind the band Muse as they performed their song Uprising at the Grammy Awards on Sunday.

I’ve been flying the Gadsden Flag since I started speaking out against our “super-size-me” and out of control government two years ago after Rick Santelli’s rant gave rise to the Tea Party in February of 2009. The Gadsden Flag has been adopted by the Tea Party to represent their movement.

I don’t know the intention that Muse had in showing The Flag, maybe they meant nothing by it at all, but it is cool to see The Movement’s flag broadcast during a popular nationally televised event such as the Grammy Awards.

Video and lyrics below.

Look to the TV monitors in the upper right of the video for the first ten seconds to see the flag

Lyrics

The paranoia is in bloom,
The PR transmissions will resume,
They’ll try to push drugs to keep us all dumbed down,
And hope that we will never see the truth around,

SO COME ON!

Another promise, another seed,
Another packaged lie to keep us trapped in greed,
With all the green belts wrapped around our minds,
And endless red tape to keep the truth confined,

SO COME ON!

They will not force us,
They will stop degrading us,
They will not control us,
And we will be victorious!

SO COME ON!

Interchanging mind-control,
Come, let the revolution take its toll,
If you could flick a switch and open your third eye,
You’d see that we should never be afraid to die,

SO COME ON!

Rise up and take the power back,
It’s time that the fat cats had a heart attack,
You know that their time’s coming to an end,
We have to unify and watch our flag ascend!

SO COME ON!

They will not force us,
They will stop degrading us,
They will not control us,
And we will be victorious!

SO COME ON!

They will not force us,
They will stop degrading us,
They will not control us,
And we will be victorious!

SO COME ON!

COME ON!
