There. I think I am done with that.
So, early in February, I brought you this exciting news from Breitbart:
"Exclusive — The Spirit of America: Conservative Grassroots Leaders Plan Massive Pro-Trump Demonstrations Nationwide...
Conservative grassroots leaders are planning a series of massive pro-President Donald Trump rallies nationwide, Breitbart News has learned exclusively.
On Feb. 27 and March 4, the rallies—dubbed the Spirit of America Rallies—will spring up nationwide in cities and towns across America...These rallies, organizers say, are meant to be a peaceful show of force from the “silent majority” that delivered Trump a landslide electoral college victory over failed Democratic president Hillary Rodham Clinton."
And wingnuts have been promoting their chance to strike back and show what a pathetic losers liberals are, with their measly three million participants in the women's day marches. Here are a couple more samples:
World Net Daily: ""PATRIOTISM LIVES: PRO-TRUMP RALLIES TO REVIVE 'SPIRIT OF AMERICA' 'This is definitely a time for national action like this'
Joseph Farah (editor of World Net Daily): "it is so important for the Americans who elected him to the White House with a powerful Electoral College mandate to be out in the streets to make their voices heard loud and clear. The numbers need to be big, and the message needs to be obvious and focused: ‘You lost, we won. Now get of the way, stop the slander, the spewing of hate and lies, the obstruction, the violence, the lawbreaking and the instigation of chaos and disorder, and give new ideas a chance where old ideas failed.'”
And this one:
Well, today was the first day of massive pro trump rallies. And how did they do? Well, here is a look:

Trump rally in Atlanta
Trump rally in Denver
Trump rally in Raleigh
Trump Rally in St. Augustine, Fla.
And let's face it, I can go on and on here, with ones like these:
Trump rally somewhere
Trump rally somewhere else
So, this is about the nine thousandth consecutive right wing mass demonstration I've documented that has been an utter humiliation to them. I think the New York Times pretty much sums it all up:
"So on Monday, hundreds rallied across the country at statehouses and on courthouse steps to wave flags, listen to conservative speakers and stick up for a president who they say has been treated unfairly by the news media and his critics."
Hundreds. Not millions, hundreds. The left has actually outdrawn them by about a thousand to one.
I think it is time that we get something straight, once and for all: The Trump people, or the teabaggers or the moral majority basically do not exist. They are, and always have been a fiction, created through the lavish expenditure of money by rich Republican backers, to make it appear that there are actually a large number of people in the country that desperately want to see rich sociopaths plunder the rest of us dry.
Then how did they win the election, other than swamping public discourse with an unending tsunami of propaganda designed to frighten people into voting their way, and by enlisting the press to lie to the people about the very existence of the right in this country? I do not think that these things, however abominable, could accomplish electing their miserable creeps like George W. Bush or Trump. So we need to ask just how intact our voting system is, and how much Republican cheating is going on behind closed doors. Because Republican victories cannot be reconciled with turnouts like this, and the reality of these pathetic results time after time cannot be denied. Something is desperately wrong here, and it's time we found out what it is.
