One Nation Rally: The Red, “Purple”, and Blue?
October 2, 2010
While glimpsing at all of the tweets concerning the One Nation Rally in DC today there was one that caught my eye. This picture truly encapsulates Nancy Pelosi’s favorite term to describe the Tea Party: “astroturf.”… only it is not the tea party, it is the Progressive left.
One Nation Rally
So what do you see? I see a living embodiment of “astroturf.” I see red shirts, blue shirts, and purple shirts: a plethora of the Progressive minions bused in by their unions, whether by force or no I would gather it was not on their own dime.
Contrast this with Glenn Beck’s: Restore Honor Rally: The Red, “White” and Blue on 8.28
Restoring Honor Rally
All over the mall there was a sea of red, white, and blue mixed together as one. There as no differentiation between various Tea Party groups and individuals who came alone. They came together for a common purpose to bring God back into the national conversation. And they came voluntarily and paid their way
And after the rallies:
One Nation Rally
Tons of Trash and Clean-up
Restore Honor Rally
No Trash and Cleaner Than When they Came
Geraldo Rivera just admitted on his show that the One Nation Rally fell far short of Beck’s Restore Honor Rally… really with 300+ leftist groups promoting it? Supplying free transportation and some groups even requiring their members to attend?!? Hmmm… And he was right… Photos don’t lie:
Update: This is the best Obama could do with all those government workers and union members at his disposal?
Even MSM Doesn’t Buy ‘One Nation’ Claim that 10/2 Rally Attendance Topped Beck’s – In reality Al Sharpton already conceded that their numbers were low on Geraldo’s show right after the One Nation event.
REUTERS: Tens of thousands of people rallied near the Lincoln Memorial
in the U.S. capital on Saturday as liberal groups attempted to energize their base a month before pivotal congressional elections.
The rally, held under sunny skies, was billed as “One Nation Working Together” and followed a large rally by conservatives at the same site just over a month earlier.
Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO labor organization, urged the
crowd to “promise that you’ll make your voices heard, for good jobs and justice and education today and on Election Day.”
Republicans are trying to regain control of Congress from President Barack Obama’s Democrats in the November 2 congressional elections.
The rally was sponsored by unions, civil rights groups and liberal activists whohave been struggling to get their messages heard during an election campaign in which media coverage has focused on voter anger over unemployment, a weak economy and government deficits.
Proud Communists and Socialists March for Obama on Mall . . .
Now compare all the trash left at Obama’s rally to how clean the Tea Partiers left the mall after the Beck rally . . .
Beck asked people to leave their signs at home and bring their kids instead… most did. Beck’s crowd also left the site cleaner than when they came… and Beck’s speakers, including MLK’s niece, spoke of love, God and true unity of all people in America.

And still to come is the “joke” rally ‘Americans in Favor of a Return to Sanity,’ on 10.30.10 hosted by Jon Stewart that embarrassingly our President has endorsed.

What conservative and independents need to do is turn these pictures and numbers into a battle cry and motivation for Patriotic Americans, Americans concerned with their children’s and grandchildren’s futures, believers in the Constitution and God, and everyday people who use common sense… to turn the obvious (above) into votes and a victory in the next two elections and turn this big Ship… the America based on individual freedoms, inalienable rights and divine destiny around. The biggest mistake that independents or conservatives can make is to assume that they are ahead or will definitely win on November 2nd 2010 or in 2010 without continuing to work and without working to get out the vote!
