That doesn't mean that these neo-Confederate insurrectionists are quiet...oh no! Yesterday and this morning, they were full of predictions of the massive, life-changing event that was going to occur in Washington today- one that Green Eagle hasn't even mentioned yet, absorbed as he was with Constitution-loving truckers and all. This is the Million Vets March On Washington! Once again, this exciting event has been receiving massive publicity from right wing websites, with comments like these proliferating:
"Barrycades down! Spite House barricades no match for Million Vets March"
"America, Today’s Veteran’s March Means Everything…THIS IS OUR RED LINE MOMENT"
Well, sad to say, the RED LINE MOMENT didn't quite pan out as predicted. Here (as has become a tradition at Green Eagle) are a couple of photos from this event, the chief attraction of which (other than the apparently useless appearance of Sarah Palin) was the uprooting of barriers from the World War II monument and the carrying of them a couple of blocks to the front of the White House, which was definite proof of...something:
So, as expected, the tone has changed among the right wing bloggers:
"If just one person had shown up it would be a success for them."
"No, it was a success, no matter how the American hating liberals spin it."
Well, one person did show up, so I guess this was a success, even though America hating liberals like Green Eagle engage in the dastardly treason of showing how many people turned up for this event, the latest colossal failure in a seemingly endless series of marches, stretching back to the dawn of the tea party.
Nevertheless, the next one and the one after that and the one after that, ad infinitum, will, before they occur, be the subjects of endless crowing predictions of triumph from the right, only to be utterly forgotten by them after their inevitable failure.
Note: As is my practice, whenever I cover these events, I try to include photos showing the largest number of people I can find. Today's is the shot of the front of the Lincoln monument. I want to show the truth here, so I think that is only fair.
