The left wing wacko’s were stunned with the Glenn Beck rally in Washington, D.C. Although they tried to down play the size of the crowd, there were clearly several hundred thousand people there. So, they are desperate to hold the “One Nation Working Together” rally:
They are promising to have hundreds of thousands of people show up to one-up Glenn Beck. Let’s see, Glenn Beck invites people to come and doesn’t even bother to publish an agenda. He even tells people to not bring any signs and they are traveling at their own expense. He makes no prediction on crowd size, but hundreds of thousands show up anyway.
The contrast between the two events could not be starker. The following link shows all the “announced sponsors.”
Notice that just about every left-wing wacko organization in the country is involved. The plan is to show the “real face” of America.
Just think about it, all these organizations are putting together a massive effort to generate enough people to compete with one man, Glenn Beck. This clearly involves massive amount of time, effort and major funding. Expect people to arrive by planes, trains and automobiles, all funded by unions, from all over the country. Many of these people will be paid to show up and won’t even know what the event is about. Expect professional mass produced signs, organized chants and thousands of matching shirts.
This is all designed to push back against the alleged hatred and intolerance demonstrated by the Glenn Beck rally. (Some of those babies did get loud) Instead, it will end up embarrassing Democrats. This could literally push the few independents that harbor some residual respect for the Democratic Party over the edge.
I predict the following:
There will probably be fewer people here than at the Beck Rally, but the media will claim it is much larger.
The main stream media will give this front page coverage.
There will be civil disobedience and possibly violence.
Speaker after speaker will scream hatred toward Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, George Bush and all Republicans, pleading for people to stand up against hate speech and intolerance.
They will leave the Capital Mall a total mess.
Some of it will be fun to watch.
Frankly, if I were a Democrat, with some remaining brain cells still functioning, up for re-election in this political climate, I would not want anything to do with a rally with sponsors like the following:
At a time when these people should be organizing for a grass roots effort to head off a disastrous election, they are wasting value funds and resources on a meaningless political stunt. While the left wing media and the paid participants will be duly inspired, the vast majority of Americans will find this disgusting.
If they do get hundreds of thousands of people to show up, which is likely since they are paying to make this happen, it will have no impact. But, if the crowd is obviously smaller than Glenn Beck’s rally, it will be the height of embarrassment. I suspect the liberal left knows that, which is why they are so desperately trying to jack up the turnout.
If I had to name this rally, I would call it the:
The Catachresis of the Clueless 🙂
