Commies Converge on Capital

Yesterday moonbats held a me-too One Nation rally in response to Glenn Beck's massively successful Restoring Honor gathering. Despite prodigious astroturfing efforts by Comrade Obama's Big Union supporters, who bused in whole herds of leftist drones, and backing from a lengthy list of leftist organizations (including the Stalinist ANSWER, the openly treasonous Code Pink, the massive teacher's union NEA, and a wide assortment of unsavory outfits like the National Center for Transgender Equality), the event was no Restoring Honor rally. Compliments of Dan F:
Here's an original Moonbattery.com video report, compliments of Mega:
More video, underscoring the totalitarian collectivist leanings of the participants:
Other "grassroots activists" arrived in higher style. Compliments of Mega:
Attendance was poor enough that CSPAN was reportedly reduced to using a picture from Glenn Beck's bigger crowd.
Absurdly, MSNBC tried to equate the moonbat mob with the Tea Party movement:
Tapping into the same anger that fuels the tea party movement, a coalition of progressive and civil rights groups marched Saturday on the Lincoln Memorial and pledged to support Democrats struggling to keep power on Capitol Hill.
The same anger? The Tea Party is angry that socialists are attempting to destroy America, and the One Nation kooks are in a funk because they might not be able to get away with it.
Unsurprisingly, the speakers wallowed in liberals' favorite indulgence, projection. Here the explosively anti-American Harry Belafonte denounces the Tea Party for threatening the very Constitution it defends against his own kind (via Weasel Zippers):
At least they did something to stimulate jobs. There will never be a shortage of career opportunities in the field of trash removal so long as liberals gather publicly:
While they were there, moonbats took the opportunity to honor vets at the WWII memorial, after their porcine fashion, by strewing garbage:
More video of the mess the moonbats made:
For contrast, here's what it looked like after the much larger Beck rally:
The Daily Beast summed up the moonbat fest like this:
The stated intention of the One Nation rally was to promote an "antidote" rather than just a left-wing "alternative to the Tea Party," according to NAACP President Benjamin Jealous. The reality fell far short of that unifying goal.
Instead, the rally offered a snapshot of the fragile coalition that is the contemporary far left — a dizzying array of activist organizations and identity politics, with financial muscle provided by the labor unions who bused their members in.
Speakers like [Red Ed] Schultz, Jesse Jackson, and Van Jones are stars in this crowd. But for all the chanting about how "the people, united, will never be divided," this turnout was small, and suffering from an enthusiasm gap compared to the conservative populists who crowded the mall a month ago for Glenn Beck's "Restoring Honor" Rally.
The coalition is fragile, all right. It will take more than hatred of America to make for a lasting marriage between homicidally puritan Muslims and the aggressively depraved LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) lobby. Via Looking at the Left:
