Revolutions Will Not Be Won By the Likes of You

For this, we have a trifecta of stories from World Net Daily:

Not only that, but for non-crazy context (the subject of this post being the aftermath of the event), we also have Right Wing Watch’s “Larry Klayman Rally to Overthrow Obama Draws Slightly Fewer than the Millions Expected” and “Farah: Tiny Klayman Rally Was ‘A Show of Force by the American People’ that Will Save the Country.

For some context (the leading up to this event), we can go both to Right Wing Watch’s “Klayman Sets Date for Revolution to End Obama’s ‘Reign of Terror’” and, for balance, WND’s “Independence Day: Nov. 19, 2013” (a story I did not originally cover).

So … the backstory. Larry Klayman, founder of Judicial Watch, is not a fan of President Obama. And, to get him out of office, Klayman decided that he and a bunch of protesters would “descend on Washington, D.C., en masse, and demand that he leave town and resign from office if he does not want to face prison time” for pushing “his Muslim, socialist, anti-Semitic, anti-Christian, anti-white, pro-illegal immigrant, pro-radical gay and lesbian agenda.” Totally not delusional is Larry.

So, what happened? Well, as shown in that first RWW article, you can see that it was not millions of people who descended upon Washington to organize a new Continental Congress, but rather it was tens of … well, tens. Yeah. Slightly fewer than he expected. And as you can see in the second photo (copied below), they were like, TOTALLY NOT RACIST.

Per the second RWW article, and per the final bulleted WND article, WND’s founder (Joseph Farah) wrote that he was a bit frustrated: “I’m frustrated by the fact that no one is marching on Washington today despite the fact that the fabric of our nation is being destroyed in the greatest attack on liberty and self-government in the history of our country.” He thinks “the tea party went AWOL in 2012 and has remained mysteriously absent from visible, national political activity ever since.” He seems not really sure what’s going on. His column garnered 38 ratings (so far) with an average score of 4.63/5, and it has 348 comments. The excuses are many, but perhaps the third-highest, written by “ron44,” is most accurate: “Tea party members have jobs, raise children and take care of others,,sometimes it appears they are not around.they are busy, not like the occupiers who raise hell, break things and cause trouble and who also get a free ride on unemployment to be able to do just that,,this countries government would rather you sit on your*** and continually vote them back into office..Pelosi and Biden just love these idiots.”

Meanwhile, the middle bulleted article is Klayman’s own take, while the first is by Garth Kant (WND’s Washington news editor) who covered it. The included photo shows Klayman on stage looking a tad lonely, but that may just be me reading into it. Kant wrote that “about 200 hardy patriots concerned about the direction of the country gathered on a sunny but chilly day to hear speakers call for two goals: The renewal of America and the resignation of President Obama.” I might note that 200 < "millions." Kant's article (again, that first bulleted item) is really the more comprehensive run-down of the event, so if you really want to know what they said, read that. It has garnered a respectable 329 ratings (4.73/5 average stars) and 731 comments — quite high. The comments, however, don't seem that interesting to me. Mostly just anti-Obama/liberal/Democrat/etc. and pro-rebellion. It's kinda a circle-j—-k.

    200 is totally “millions.” 0.0002 millions, to be precise.

    More seriously: Are they still camping out in DC? I seem to remember that was part of the itenery – they’d make Obama leave, and then they’d move on to Pensylvania.
