The 9/12 Washington, DC Tea Party Rally … What was the Attendance & Why the MSM is Downplaying the Numbers
It was Tea Party Shock and Awe at the 9/12 DC Tea Party. A picture is worth a million Tea Party go’ers. GRID LOCK courtesy of democracy in action and the DC Tea Party.
One thing is for certain … “We the People” made our voice and presence known to Congress and to President Obama as to how we feel about the economy, taxes, deficit and Obamacare. You can no longer avoid the fact that there is a great deal of dissent against your policies … DO YOU HERE US NOW!!! If you don’t Democrats, Republicans, Blue Dogs, Rino’s and Obama … you will receive a pink slip soon.
Does this look like tens of thousands?
In typical fashion the liberal MSM as down played the numbers of actual protesters that descended upon Washington, DC for the 9/12 Washington, DC Tea Party. ABC News is claiming that they never said that there were million, they are stating that there were 60 to 70 thousand. CBS News is reporting a vague tens of thousands. As pointed out by Stop the ACLU, CNN’s report has no number of protesters what so ever. The Washington Post reports tens of thousands as well. Folks, they shut DC down. What does that tell you as to how many people showed?
Sadly the liberal MSM would have you believe that the 9/12 Tax Payer protesters that showed in DC was some how comparable to an Obama rally in MN where The One ran off to instead of facing the music. Would it really kill the MSM to accurately report the dissent against the President that they carry the water for … Yes it obviously would.
H/T: Michelle Malkin: Does this look like tens of thousands?
Once again, just tens of thousands
However the Daily Mail is quoting 2 million.
Up to two million people marched to the U.S. Capitol today, carrying signs with slogans such as “Obamacare makes me sick” as they protested the president’s health care plan and what they say is out-of-control spending.
The line of protesters spread across Pennsylvania Avenue for blocks, all the way to the capitol, according to the Washington Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency.
Michelle Malkin has numerous pics and time saved photos to counteract the nutroot moonbats that claim the pics were doctored. What’s the matter LEFT, afraid of the truth? You should be!
Hot Air asks how big was the crowd with time lapse video. One thing is for certain, the crowd took DC authorities by surprise as the “freedom fighters” descending upon DC caused complete gridlock.
However big it was, it was bigger than expected. From the NYT: “Many came on their own and were not part of an organization or group. But the magnitude of the rally took the authorities by surprise, with throngs of people streaming from the White House to Capitol Hill for more than three hours.”
