Larry Klayman really is endlessly amusing to me. He really does seem to believe that he’s leading a “second American revolution,” which is absolutely hilarious. The self-delusion is almost touching, especially as he pretends that his rally in Lafayette Park last November did anything other than spread a little litter around.
Oct. 13, 2013, was the day the first shots were fired in the New American Revolution. This occurred when yours truly, joined by fellow tea partiers Gov. Sarah Palin and Sens. Mike Lee and Ted Cruz, spoke before a crowd of angry patriots who had gathered in front of the World War II Memorial to protest having been prevented from entering this hallowed ground for military veterans by the Obama-run U.S. Park Service during the government shutdown. Following the speeches and protests, hordes of these angry patriots, myself included, marched across the rainy and cold landscape of our “capital of corruption,” Washington, D.C., to congregate in front of the now tarnished and defiled Pennsylvania Avenue gates of the White House – whose current inhabitant is a fraudulently elected president who primarily favors socialists, atheists, Muslims and others from the far left and, as a self-proclaimed king, does not represent all Americans as he promised when elected.
Some of the hordes carried with them the government barricades they had torn down at the World War II Memorial. Sharpshooters were stationed on top of the White House ready to take out anyone who they deemed to be out of control. Still, the patriots bravely proceeded to symbolically throw the barricades up against the gates separating themselves from our “fearless leader.” All of this was captured by the news media who were present that day. While the patriots harmed no one, it was clear to all who were present that this was the first sign that a new American revolution had begun; in effect, the first shots fired at Lexington and Concord.
About a month later, on Nov. 19, 2013, the revolution was furthered by another peaceful but forceful protest I and other patriots had named the Reclaim America Now Coalition. Also held in front the the White House, in full earshot of President Obama, whom I metaphorically accused of hiding for cover under his desk, the event had speakers and the crowd proclaiming their dedication to restoring the freedoms our Founding Fathers had proclaimed on July 4, 1776. Reading aloud this Declaration of Independence, taking a lead from our Founding Fathers, we pledged our “fortunes,” sacred honor and lives to do whatever it takes to save our great nation, peacefully and non-violently. Present that day were representatives from over 40 organizations and others who had come together to further the cause of freedom.
Wow, 40 organizations were represented…within the whopping 100 or so people who showed up. There were almost as many speakers as there were attendees. But you keep telling yourself that you’re at the vanguard of a new revolution, Larry. The rest of us will just point and laugh.
