"I hate to say this, but this 'One Nation Rally' is a disaster."



Once or twice a year, the Looney Left holds some big protest or march that everybody's supposed to go to, and this is breathlessly promised to be THE DAY WHEN EVERYTHING FINALLY CHANGED! The DUmmies all get their hopes up: This is IT! At LAST! NOW we will have turned the corner! Socialist Utopia, here we COME!

Today, October 2, was the latest version of same. "One Nation Working Together," it was billed as, a coalition of 400 special interest groups--Big Union, Big Black, Big Homo, etc.--all rallying in D.C. to demand jobs, justice, blah, blah, blah. These 400 organizations bussed in their t-shirted members, who were required to attend. The weather was perfect. The righteousness of the cause and all that. . . . We're just a month out from the elections. . . . So, lots of energy, a huge success, right? Well, I must report, it looks like this rally turned out to be . . . The Day When Everything Finally . . . Flopped, v. 47.0.

I mean, it was pitiful, pathetic, embarrassing. Sparse crowds, lots of empty seats, lots of space and grass between the people. (No, I don't mean they were spacy and smoked grass, although that would be true, too.) Dull speakers, lifeless, no energy. Even the DUmmies--at least those brave enough to admit it--had to be disappointed and embarrassed.

Let's check in with them, shall we? Scads of threads to choose from, but I'm picking one posted by a brave soul named DUmmie stevedeshazer, i.e., this
THREAD, "I hate to say this, but this 'One Nation Rally' is a disaster."

As always, the DUmmies are in Bolshevik Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, who actually watched about an hour or so of this fiasco--the things I do for you people!--is in the [brackets]:

I hate to say this, but this 'One Nation Rally' is a disaster.

[DUmmie stevedeshazer, I see a Kewpie Doll--and a tombstoning--in your future!]

The attendance is way below expectations.

[What are you talking about?? I see tens of HUNDREDS of people!]

The organization is terrible.

[Just remind yourself: This is Obama Nation you are seeing. These are the people running our country.]

George Clinton and Parliament? Okay.

[Barack Obama and Congress? Not so good.]

Every interest group sends up someone to hump their cause. There's no organized effort at all. It appears that we are divided on everything.

[SEIU, LGBT, NAACP, AFT, LULAC, UAW . . . BINGO!]

Don't shoot the messenger, but we look really, really bad.

[So we will really, really shoot you!]

It is an embarrassment.

[DUmmie stevedeshazer, I think you are headed for the Kewpie Doll Hall of Fame!]

It's a loser. The teabaggers and the media are going to have a field day with this.

[And the DUmmie FUnnies, of COURSE!]

One Nation?

[What in tarnation??]

It was AWFUL. I'm embarrassed, frankly.

[An honest DUmmie. And brave!]

And for the poseurs like a certain fat redhead egotistical radio host who promised much more than he could deliver, thanks a pile.

[Blowhard Ed Schultz, this pile's for you!]

Wow, what a disappointment.

[Wow. Say it again: Wow.]

I sure hope people get out and vote, but nothing that happened today gives me any confidence that enough Dems and independents will turn out.

[One month to go. I'm sure Blowhard Ed Schultz and his followers--numbering in the TENS--will turn this thing around for you IN NO TIME!]

There, I said it. Flame on. We're really in trouble here. I expect for telling the truth, this thread will be locked.

[Speak truth to power, DUmmie stevedeshazer! But you may get a little reprieve for a while yet, since I'm sure all the DUmmieland brass were down there in D.C., standing with all the teeming throngs, listening attentively to all the stemwinder speeches, soaking up the atmosphere of complete VICTORY, and so it will be awhile before they come down from the mountaintop that was and is ONE NATION WORKING TOGETHER!!! So let's go to your fellow DUmmies . . .]

well, I don't think you're up for Mr. Popularity. . . .

[You may be up for Mr. LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]

what on Earth are you basing this on? The attendance was great, the speakers were great, the coverage was very good.

[Repeat after me: 2 + 2 = 5. . . . Which is how many were left by the end.]

What rally do you watch? It was well attended and very meaningful.

[Please report to the Ministry of Truth for further re-education.]

I feel energized and inspired.

[I'm living in a DREAMWORLD! La de da de da. . . .]

I have watched some of it and the crowd looks good, the speeches for the most part were good and it looks organized.

["For the most part were good". . . . What a ringing endorsement!]

Democrats have many varied interests.

[All united under the banner of . . . GIVE US OURS!!!]

Ed Schultz was promoting it on his radio show heavily.

[No wonder DOZENS of people showed up!]

For that number of people to get on buses or drive to be there says there's something going on. . . .

[Union dues paying for it, union bosses requiring it. . . . So they got off the bus, showed up for a few minutes, and then took off.]

This was an important meeting for the progressive movement and the real big tent.

[So where were YOU, EFerrari (aka Doug's ex-wife)? Why weren't YOU there, gathered under the Big Top?]

Did you SEE the speakers today?

[Or did you nod off all the time, trying to keep your eyes open?]

Harry Belafonte, Ben Jealous, Jesse, Marian, so many.

[Real diversity there.]

I just saw some of the crowd photos in the other thread! Now *THAT* was exciting to see! Normal, rational signage!



I'm desperately seeking the silver lining, so I'll grab on and hold tight . . .

[. . . to my bong pipe. Calgon, take me away!]

You seem to be one misearable person, get out, go to the beach today . . .

[. . . and throw yourself in.]

I was planning on attending, but I ended up getting my appendix out instead.

[OK, but don't let it happen again!]

From what I saw on CSPAN the attendance was way over 10,000--though maybe not 300,000.

[I've seen bigger crowds at Florida Marlins' games. Heck, I've seen bigger crowds at Paint-Drying Conventions.]

I wish I had been there. And I would have been had my appendix not ruptured.

[In case of Rupture, this rally will be unattended.]

People can't live their lives based on what some overpaid TelePrompter reader or paid shill is going to say.

[Leave Obama and Olbermann out of this.]

If that's the case what's the point of even leaving our houses in the morning.

[Why even go upstairs out of the basement?]

it was successful. But I wasn't expecting too much. I think the message was not clarified enough.

[Another ringing endorsement!]

Don't seal up the doors and turn on the gas just yet. We have a month before the election. . . .

[THEN you can turn on the gas!]

It was Open House and for me - it was perfect. . . . It was perfect. . . . It was perfect. . . . It was perfect.

[It was PERFECT, I tell you!]

Dude.. Really?

[DUde!]

Frankly, I was worried it would be poorly attended and thus an embarrassing bust.

[This was the A-cup of embarrassing busts.]

George Clinton and Parliament..is that the best they could do?

[They were trying for KC and the Sunshine Band, but had to settle.]

Another whinny thread by OP.

[Yep, he's just a neigh-sayer.]

I would have to say Beck's rally was considerably bigger. . . . It felt like the crowd broke up far too early though and left some of the speakers later in the day talking to a very diminished crowd. . . . I know we had like 400 groups turning out people, and each group wants a slot, but it is just too much. . . . so we don't have images of people leaving during speeches and large chunks of lawn for a couple hours.

[It truly was a grassroots event!]

Real quote by the dolt introducing Ed Schultz: "We want a clean environment so our children will never have to report to drinking water, breathing air and staying healthy."

Despite their alleged commitment to a clean environment the grounds around the rally site were littered with trash. Lefties can't be expected to pick up after themselves.

The rally would have been as big as Beck's had the dead voters bussed in by ACORN been counted.

Pictures are worth a thousand words.

The reason the Left always accuses the Tea Party of astroturf is because their own rallies are astroturf. It's sad, because if getting people to join in one spot means anything, the Left used to be really great at it. They remind me of Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard, insisting they're still the best, that they still matter.

My Father was a 30 year Navy retiree; a veteran of WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. He's been gone for not quite 3 years now. Nine months before he died, he was fortunate enough to participate in an Honor Flight from south Georgia to the newly opened WWII Memorial along with about 90 fellow WWII veterans. When he returned he was so very proud and moved to tears by the welcoming crowd back at the airport (and he was not easily moved to tears). When I saw pictures of how this group of thugs and lowlifes left the WWII Memorial this past Saturday, I was broken-hearted. These scumbags have no soul and I hope they eventually rot in Hell.

susieq,

My neighbor flew on a Honor Flight out of Milwaukee several weeks ago.
He's 85, he's active and plays golf but half the vets on his flight were in wheelchairs. He was deeply moved by the memorial but most of all by all the people who applauded and cheered the vets in the airports and at the Memorial.

The bums who littered the WWII Memorial also littered the Lincoln Memorial. They're people without pride, self-respect or respect for others. Such hypocrites, all that cheap, empty talk about a clean evironment and they couldn't pick up their own trash. It speaks volumes about them and we won't forget it.

"Socialist Utopia, here we COME!" PJinc

And what was Beck's little gathering all about? "Joseph Smith, here we COME!"?

This pissing contest about who, how many, what signs were they carrying and how much garbage was left behind during the latest march in DC is fucking pointless. Pointless.

If you like watching, dirty hippies leave an even bigger garbage heap at the end of "Woodstock". You should be able to get yourselves off more than once before that movie ends.

Whatever, chimps.

And then this:

"The bums who littered the WWII Memorial also littered the Lincoln Memorial. They're people without pride, self-respect or respect for others. Such hypocrites, all that cheap, empty talk about a clean evironment and they couldn't pick up their own trash. It speaks volumes about them and we won't forget it." elrond

First of all, you need to prove to me that the volume of the garbage left was abnormal. Next, you need to prove to me that it matters. You won't be able to do either. So your strident, patriotic swill is just that - swill. It means nothing. Yet you think it does.

Jesus, elrond. you're ratcheting things up lately. You recently made it "life and death" in another thread. Something bothering you?

On a more practical note, my puppy, Gus, has a habit of dropping a slobbery, squeaky, rubber hot dog (something I, troglaman, know appeals to most of you) directly on the keyboard of my laptop while I'm trying to achieve an internet moment.

I know you all hate me, but do any of you know how to remove dried dog slobber from a delicate and sophisticated electronic device? Baking soda maybe?

Pounding down several bottles of Everclear and howling like a rabid dog, TROGLAMAN - The Official Hate-Mongering Anti-American Guttersnipe of the DUmmie FUnnies Blog Site - repeatedly power-slammed his head up his ass and emitted the following pile of worthless mental excrement:

We don't need to prove jack shit to you Guttersnipe because you don't give a damn, wouldn't believe it if you saw it and haven't earned such consideration.

And it doesn't mean anything to you because - as I have accurately stated many times - you are an Anti-American Guttersnipe.

And kudos to your dog, he's obviously a hell of a lot smarter than you'll ever be.

Troggy,

I think Gus has been posting here under your name.

Obviously I can't prove anything to you since you would simply deny the evidence I present. So do a little Googling, compare the DC demonstrations (Beck and One Nation) for attendence, picking up the trash, etc.

I've been to the WWII Memorial, it's kept spotlessly clean, yet it was trashed last Sunday by self-described liberals and leftists.
The same people telling me I must go Green can't seem to find a trash basket. They're slobs and they're hypocrites. And it does matter.

It matters to me, troggy, that they trashed the WWII Memorial because the Memorial mattered to my Daddy. He freely enlisted at 17years old, because he loved this country and felt it was worth fighting and possibly dying for. That these cretins trashed what he held so dearly, makes me sick. They used that freedom that he fought for to trash a memorial honoring those very souls.

By the way, I don't hate you; I pity you. You can't possibly think that you can even get that kind of rise out of me, do you?

Also, you can try a commercial keyboard cleaner, or I read on the web that Clorox wipes will clean saliva and dirt. As for the leavings of your "internet moment", it might work for that, too.

You're reacting to a narrative, susie. There's nothing, absolutely nothing, that suggests these demonstrators left more trash than any other demonstrations left.

That's the truth.

You think your Daddy would be proud of your efforts to take a twisted fact and make it into a patriotic statement that actually defiles him?

Your ability to reduce his legacy into an argument about paper cups and wrappers is...astonishing. I'm sure he'd be proud of how thin-skinned and pussified you've become about trash and that it would even enter your mind that casually discarded paper cups and wrappers could do so much damage to your picture of his fragile ego.

Susie's a wimp. And she thinks her daddy's a wimp. She thinks her WWII daddy will be emotionally derailed about the trash. Paper cups and wrappers. That's the esteem with which she holds her daddy.

Like I said, do a little Googling, compare Beck's rally to the One Nation rally, they were only five weekd apart. In fact, compare any Tea Party rally to any leftist rally.

The litter is a minor problem, quickly picked up by the DC park garbagemen; it's the mind set behind the litter that's the problem.

The "mind set"? It's the irony of people who preach environmentalism and love of Gaia throwing trash around Washington D.C. I conclude: 1) They're too damn lazy to pick up after themselves, 2) they don't respect America, its monuments or its people, 3) they're hypocrites, the rules don't apply to them.

Are you saying that the ONLY people that leave garbage are the people who "don't respect America, its monuments, or it's people"?

The wait isn't over by a long shot, elrond. Now you're going to have to prove that anyone leaving garbage anywhere is someone who doesn't "respect America, its monuments, or it's people". Because that's what you're saying. And that's why you're a dumbshit.

The problem, elrond, is that it's not the truth. So that means you're too obtuse.
