‘One Nation Working Together’ Rally an AstroTurf Flop: But it Made Me Laugh!

With over 400 organizations supporting the left wing Glen Beck Rally wannabe’s, each organization managed only a few dozen people on average. Many were paid union members, or others on the clock. Perhaps 10% of the crowd was there because they willingly attended.

If you visit the rally’s website, or look at the pictures floating around the internet, the first thing you notice are the groups of people dressed in the same union t-shirts, the professionally printed signs, and the general atmosphere of a “support my union” day. Totally AstroTurf from top to bottom.

Compared to a true Tea Party or Beck rally, this was a Hollywood cast call moment.

“Let’s get as many special interest groups as possible in one place supporting their causes” was the overall theme.

This is typical of the liberal moments we have seen of late. If you can’t support the Obama agenda, please come out to support your favorite special interest.

Some advice for these Tea Party Wannabees. Next time, try to have a message that unifies the attendees. Like “Smaller Government, Lower Taxes and more freedom” (but that one is already taken).

I am sorry, but a group of gays supporting the gay agenda in the same crowd with SEIU folks wanting more Union Bailouts and Communists wanting a total overthrow of Democracy and Anarchists wanting a total overthrow of government are not unified protesters.

The problem is, it is impossible to find a lot of people that want to get all protesty over higher taxes and more government. There are a few, but since we closed down most of the mental institutions that is understandable.

About the only group attending the rally were those who plan to be on the Government dole forever. These folks don’t mind higher taxes because somebody else pays them – not them!

But I will have to admit, this rally has one distinct advantage for attendees over the Beck, Tea Party and 9/12 rallies. It is easy to find a place to stand or sit at AstroTurf Union / Commie rallies. But that sort of negates the point, right?

Just another example of liberal losers who just don’t get it!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
