Left's 10-2 Counter Rally Fizzles

Rate this post

UPDATE: See a follow-up to this post on the nature and composition of the 10-2 rally, Liberals Finally Admit They’re Socialists.”
What if they called a rally and hardly anybody came?
Yesterday, October 2, at the Lincoln Memorial Mall in Washington, D.C., the Left held its counter rally against the massive “Restore Honor” Tea Party rally organized by Glenn Beck a month ago. They called their rally “One Nation [of Socialists, Communists, and Parasites] Working Together.”
Here’s a shot of the Left’s counter rally:

Here’s a shot of the Right’s “Restore Honor” rally on August 28, 2010:

Here’s a shot of the Right’s rally from the same camera angle:

Patriots' rally, 8/28/2010

Notice the difference in turnout between the two rallies?
C-Span was so embarassed by the anemic turnout that they used a crowd shot from last month’s “Restore Honor” rally to make yesterday’s  Left rally look more populous! Shame on you, C-Span. (H/t beloved fellows Doc’s Wife & Steve.)
At least the AP was honest, conceding that the Left rally was “less dense and didn’t reach as far to the edges as they did during Beck’s rally.” The most generous estimate is that a few thousands showed up yesterday. Exclude all those who were paid to show up, the turnout would have been even more sparse, although these few thousands will make up for their numbers in the trash they leave behind.
Not even Obama came. He’s spending the weekend in Camp David. What a nice guy, uh?

Notice also the paucity of American flags in the Left’s rally. Instead there are union banners and purple SEIU t-shirts.
H/t Weasel Zippers!

  1. But I’ll bet they still left twice as much trash (and didn’t clean up after themselves) than the Restore Honor rally… even the April 15th TEA Party in DC, too.

  2. I just read that C-Span misrepresented the numbers at the rally yesterday. Seems they took a picure of Glen Beck’s 9/28 rally, and claimed the picture was taken yesterday at the rally.

    • Ah, but it’s not lying if it’s for the greater good of “social justice,” you know (like Walter Duranty covering for Stalin during the Ukraine famine).

  3. I guess some were mad because they were told they had to be there![UNIONS]

  4. Thank you for posting the comparative pictures. As they say a picture is worth a thousand words. God bless America!

  5. Pick up after themselves? But that would require personal responsibility and effort!

  6. Oh dear, how very, very stupid of them.
    Now they look like losers.

  7. hahahahahaha….
    This is what happens when you have to pay the sheeple to go to a rally. The TEA Partiers have the PASSION to restore our country and bring patriotic spirit to the rallies. The libtards can’t copy that…

  8. LOL – So Special Ed’s Red Rally fizzled. What a surprise.
    Communism isn’t anywhere near as popular in America as the commies think it is.
    And yes, these people are all commies, as the ultimate goal of socialism is communism. Vladimir Lenin said that himself, and he was speaking with not a little authority.
    Too bad so many in today’s government “educated” America still don’t get this – even many “conservatives.”
