In a textbook example of whistling past the graveyard, Operation American Spring creator Col. Harry Riley says that the event was a big success even though only a few hundred people showed up after he’d promised at least 10 million. And now, phase 2 has begun.
Last time Operation American Spring leader Harry Riley stopped by “The Alan Colmes Show,” he told Colmes that he was expecting a “a href=”http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/operation-american-spring-hopes-shut-down-washington-freedom”>gigantic, massive rally” that would “field about 10 to 20 million people in Washington, D.C. and we’re going to close it down.” In another interview, “a href=”http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/operation-american-spring-leader-says-god-will-lead-millions-against-obamas-socialist-fascis”>Riley guaranteed a “verified, validated” minimum of 10 million attendees ready to overthrow President Obama.
Declaring the event to be a success, Riley said Operation American Spring is now entering a second phase in its plan to oust President Obama and top administration officials.
“We’re still in that process, we were in a mobilization phase, now we’re in phase II of exercising our strength and length of phase.”
