"5.5 million vets get behind newest rally...Veterans have rallied against the federal government’s actions in Washington several times lately, including over the weekend when they carried barricades – some called them “barrycades” – over to the White House lawn where they dumped them. So have bikers. So have truckers. But now, according to a report in the Army Times, a group representing about 5.5 million Americans – service members, veterans, retirees and their families – will be rallying on Tuesday."
Bikers- a total failure. The Truckers- even worse. The veterans on Sunday- they got about 250 people to come to their "million man march." So, here they come again, folks! Judging from previous performance, we might expect their 5.5 million veterans to turn out to amount to about 1400. I'll be surprised at this point if they can even do that.
Here's World Net Daily's account of the latest wingnut failure:
"The memorial in Washington was the scene of fireworks over the weekend, when thousands of Americans stormed into the nation’s capital and tore down barricades blocking the World War II Memorial Sunday.
“Barrycades are down,” tweeted Sherry Lucas, a reference to President Barack Obama’s childhood nickname of Barry.
Many of the barricades were then hand-carried by the protesters and dumped in front of the White House."
An impressive feat. Well, except for the fact that WND's count of the demonstrators is (following a long right wing tradition) about ten times the truth.
For those who feel more comfortable with visual images, try this- here's the French revolution:
