Wingnuts on the March

Well, I'm not going to make much of this, but this weekend was to have been the occasion of a massive number of huge demonstrations by right wing racists against "Sharia law."  As always, almost nobody turned out for any of these events.  The one in New York, or the one in Washington, for example, seem to have attracted only a few dozen participants.  Right wing sources are claiming a massive turnout of 200 or so in two places; Orlando, Florida, one of the cracker centers of gravity of the whole country, and San Bernardino, California.  The Orlando one may have attracted two hundred people, waving Nazi and Confederate flags, and chanting "one people, one land," a clear reference to the Nazi slogan of "Ein Volk, Ein Reich, Ein Fuhrerer."  So, good for you, Florida people.  I can't find any pictures remotely indicating a crowd of 200 in San Bernardino, so we'll just chalk that one down as one more right wing lie.

Anyway, if it wasn't for my long history of reporting on these endless right wing failures, I wouldn't have bothered with this, and I certainly won't be surprised if you are not really interested either.  But once again, it shows what a con the American people have swallowed when they bought into the lie that there is a large movement out there of ordinary people who are just hungry to have rich psychopaths reduce them to slavery.
