Tiny fringe group seen at D.C.

Just a small number of people marched on D.C. for the 9-12 Tea Party ;)

12:34pm Eastern: Police estimate 1.2 million in attendance. ABC News reporting crowd at 2 million.

AP reporting "tens of thousands". Headline reads "thousands"

This link is broken, either the page no longer exists or there is some other issue like a typo.


Freedom Works, a sponsor of the rally estimated 450,000.

Unconfirmed reports from Capitol Police estimate 1.2 million.

I seen the "Tens of thousands" quote before but there's a lot more than that in the pictures above.

Yes, it was impressive. We literally closed down the entire federal area of the city. The Federal Mall was packed with participants from the Capital to the Washington Monument; literally standing room only for the entire 1 mile plus distance. We were meeting out of state friends there but even with cell phones and loud colors we never did find them; it was just too crowded. You couldn’t move. The event organizers reported "ABC news put the number at 1.5 million while the NY Times put the number around 500." ;) The people who participated came from every state, including Alaska and Hawaii and I spoke with many individuals who were clearly left of center politically.

After reading the papers this morning I’m a little disappointed in the news coverage. I guess I expected that this showing of anger and distrust would be the proverbial 2X4 across the back of some politicians’ heads. You would have thought so with the numbers present. I was there, the message was clear – stop spending, stop encroaching on our freedoms and stop the lying to us for your political gain. Time will tell if this message actually got through.

It’s a sad testimonial that we have became so complacent and accepting that nothing we do will make any difference that we do nothing. It doesn’t matter your party affiliation, this transcends party lines; your indifference is what all politicians are counting on. Hopefully, the rally this weekend will show more Americans that there are things we can do to change the direction the current political atmosphere would have us move to. Benjamin Franklin was asked in 1791 what kind of government the Constitutional Congress had given us and he replied, “A republic, if you can keep it.” Everyone needs to decide for themselves if it’s worth keeping because just like your teeth, if you ignore them, our republic will go away.

I am not one to push conspiracy theories but you must remember that we were marching in a Democrat city, with police that lead by a Democrat mayor are in the pocket of the Democrat party, who are beholding to a Democrat president and a Democratic congress. This march is a direct slap in the face to Obama and all other Democrats in Washington. The really only odd thing I saw, or didn't see, was very small police presence. Good thing all those right wing radicals didn't turn ugly. :) Hell we even used the out houses instead of the other facilities.
I have seen 10s of thousands of people many times. (Rich Stadium in Orchard Park NY holds 80 "tens of thousands of people") This event was twenty times that football crowd. The only problem was the crowd was too big to see from one vantage point if you were on the ground. What a joke!
One other thing that struck me was how friendly the people were. No pushing, no shoving, no swearing, no pot smoking, just a bunch or right wing, flag waving, America loving radicals. I felt all warm and fuzzy and right at home.

It's not a conspiracy theory. The MSM is in the tank for the NWO as is all of DC.

David Axelrod's spin:

"I don't think it's indicative of the nation's mood," Axelrod said on CBS' "Face the Nation." "You know, I don't think we ought to be distracted by that. My message to them is, they're wrong."
