Another Day, Another Failed Right Wing Rally in Washington

Another Day, Another Failed Right Wing Rally in Washington September 16, 2014

The group Two Million Bikers tried and failed for the second time to get “thousands” of people to show up in Washington to hold a big rally to get Obama out of office. A couple hundred people showed up, then dwindled down to about 50 after a while. Even the speakers were disappointed:

But uniting them and other speakers was hostility toward the Obama administration and anger at the perception that the president will not clearly identify Islamist extremism as the nation’s enemy. Among the conspiracy theories heard from the podium were the claim from Second Amendment activist and self-described “gun chick” Jan Morgan that the U.N. small arms treaty was about disarming Americans, and the assertion by “Pope” Dan Johnson that “NATO came together in a meeting and this administration signed that NATO pact to tell Christians or to tell any religion what they can and cannot do.” Morgan said she didn’t believe Obama had actually won re-election because she knows about votes counted in Barcelona, Spain, and dead people who voted six times…

Manny Vega, a Marine vet and self-described “Three Percenter” also spoke at both rallies.

Vega, who as one of the final speakers faced a very sparse crowd, seemed bummed out by the small turnout. “There should be millions of people,” he said, recalling photos of Vietnam War protests filling the entire mall. “What are we doing? A couple patriots out here.” Vega said more truck drivers, waitresses, bikers, and mechanics need to get involved and get elected.

Dinesh D’Souza showed up too and sold a handful of books. It’s almost comical at this point, isn’t it? How many times have they tried and failed at this? Operation American Spring was going to have “at least 10 million” people show up; a few hundred did. Larry Klayman’s Second American Revolution was going to remove Obama from office; there were nearly as many speakers as there were people to listen to them. Thousands of truckers were going to descend on DC and shut down the beltway; a couple guys in pickups with confederate flags showed up and were barely noticed. But don’t worry, the next one is going to be HUGE.

    From the RWW article:

    The day before the rally, D’Souza tweeted, “On 9/11 anniversary tomorrow I am speaking at huge biker rally on the national mall in Washington DC.”

    Well, so much for D’Souza’s grip on reality!

    “Almost” comical?

    Just read on WND that, “At approximately 1 p.m., “2 Million Bikers to DC” Facebook page co-founder Belinda Bee posted that police have counted nearly 1 million bikers are on the streets of Washington,” so clearly there is a conspiracy by the lamestream media to cover that up and all the residents of D.C. who didn’t notice the gridlock are a part of the conspiracy.

  • How many times have they tried and failed at this?

    As long as the checks clear…

  • cry4turtles

    All the bikers I know would’ve laughed their asses off at these idiots.

    “Almost” comical?

    Well ‘sad’ and ‘pathetic’ might overwhelm the comical

  • kantalope

    How am I supposed to sell my ‘Merican Flag boxer shorts and tank tops if attendance is this sparse? Thanks Obama!

  • I find it an interesting study of perception and information source bias on group expectations.

  • hunter

    I live just down the street from a well-known biker/leather bar. These clowns wouldn’t last two minutes with those guys. (Umm — it’s a gay biker/leather bar.)

  • If these clowns admitted that their beliefs are shared by virtually no one else, they could no longer claim to be “patriots” who represent the real will of the people. So the delusions will continue.

  • jnorris

    If all of the groups wanting to force Pres Obama from office would join together and have just one rally, they might draw a decent crowd.

  • I get the impression Dan Johnson doesn’t have a clue what NATO is. Hell, I wouldn’t be surprised if he thinks the US only became a member after Obama took office.

  • dingojack

    jnorris – ‘a decent crowd’?

    a) of gawpers, pointing and laughing at the marchers


    b) to just about half-fill a phone box.

    So, where are all the people?

    Well… They have jobs, families, responsibilities, you know, grown-up stuff.

  • dingojack

    Great! Now I’ve got Eleanor Rigby running through my head, thanks vereverum!

    🙂 Dingo

  • vereverum

    Glad to oblige, but you know they have to have jobs, etc, just to make ends meet.

    Eleanor gone now?

  • lorn

    Threats, promises, things that happen, and things that don’t.

    Runaway inflation is right around the corner.

    _____ will come for your guns.

    Christians/ conservatives/ real Americans will be arrested and transported in cattle cars to internment camps.

    If you do that all the businesses will move overseas.

    If you don’t do what we want all the ‘producers/ job creators’ will go Galt.

    1 to 5 million people will come to DC and demand their agenda dominate the nation.

    … the list is still being written, it will never end.
