Big Fail. Overhead Photo Shows Embarrassingly Small Turnout at One Nation Rally
Gateway pundit ^ | October 3, 2010 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 10/03/2010 12:23:19 PM PDT by opentalk

The wacky dishonest left wants you to believe that their crowd yesterday matched the Glenn Beck rally last month.

Well, here’s an overhead shot from yesterday’s astroturfed One Nation rally posted at the left-wing Huffington Post

And, here is a crowd shot from Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor rally in late August.

So who are you going to believe? The leftist media or your lying eyes?

Vive La Difference!!

I knew there was a reason why we weren’t seeing a comparison photograph taken from the top of the Washington Monument like the one for the Beck rally in the MSM.

Now we can see and compare.

No doubt it will be reported by the MSM as much BIGGER than the 8/28 rally.

After all, the end justifies the means.

It's amazing that the greatest country ever, the USA has an increasing number of Communist government supporters when Communism and socialism has failed every time it has been tried throughout history.

It appears as though there aren’t as many Marxists/socialists and communists living in my country as I thought there were. I’m starting to think that maybe I’ve overreacted to all of their threats and bull****.

I was at 8/28. You couldn’t move it was so packed. Metro was jambed for hours, hotels were full, buses came in from all over the country and people actually PAID THEIR OWN WAY. I’m preachin to the choir I know.

Is there a comparison of the number of porta-potties deployed for both events?

Odd how the MSM doesn’t do these types of comparison shots - I suspect they would if the crowd sizes were reversed.

The people that went to the Beck rally couldn't wait to get there...the people at the Communist Celebration couldn't wait to leave.

What are the white objects on the left edge of the photo’s?

are those busses or rows of porta-potties?

Were the lefties allowed to park on the grass or were they expecting a much, much larger crowd?

The “One Nation” crowd will probably cast more votes than the Beck crowd.

I saw a couple of photos yesterday that showed that some of these morons used the free trip to D.C. as an opportunity to visit the National Air & Space museum instead of standing around in the sun listening to a bunch of commies pass gas. I don’t blame them. LOL!!!

Today’s Sac Bee, another left wing communist rag, didn’t even have a story on the rally. I guess they didn’t think they could spin it enough. I don’t buy the bee but saw one lying on the counter at the store and read the front page. Nothing there, could have had a story buried in the middle somewhere:).

There were lions prowling around the Mall.

Oh, I'm sure they do them; they just don't show them unless the size favors their agenda.

What disturbs me is that "crowd scenes" on digital media, from a distance, could be easily photoshopped.

That would create erroneous numbers for comparison since more from the left would chose not to use them when needed than those from the right.

I don’t believe the MSM will ‘fake’ the shots - they just won’t ‘show’ the whole truth.

Pretty interesting, particularly if you consider that they would not allow busses into DC for the 8/28 rally, but had union-bought busses in town for this one. So despite Pelosi’s best attempt to silence dissent, it’s obvious that there is a lot more fire in the bellies of conservatives than there is among the commies.

I would like to know the time the photo was for the ‘O nation rally’. Was it taken at the supposed peak — if there was a peak?

Where are the people? I mainly see grass!!

Aren’t there nearly as many people on the Mall on a normal Saturday afternoon, when the tourists come?

And I’ll bet that there was much more trash left on the Mall by this minuscule group of liberals than by that gigantic crowd at the Glenn Beck rally.

This rally will actually have exactly the opposite results that these “Obama” nutcases wanted to happen. Objectively these people bordered close to being disgusting in their appearance, in their hate for America, and in their cleanliness!!! If this is the kind of country you want America (Obamaville) then you go right ahead and vote for it. But.....if you want your country and freedom back then you best vote on November 2, 2010 to totally destroy the entire Democrat Party!!! Get out and vote to take our country back from these useless misfits and malcontents that could never do any country in God’s world right and justly!!! REMEMBER In November!!!!
