The WaPo also reports that the protest crowds were much smaller this year --- even the organizers only estimated 25,000.
Mark Goldstone sounds like the type of guy who would complain about conditions if he actually got arrested. What type of loser protester deliberately tries to get arrested, but can't?
I would have loved to have the Fire Dept come and just spray a gentle mist onto them. Then again, as far as the LSM goes, that would be torture.
I watched the parade from a building in the 1200 block. The stands were half empty. One other person said that the reason the bleachers were not filled is that the demonstratiors were getting in the security line and bringing things they couldn't have to slow up the search.
This kept people with tickets from getting in.
I don't know if this is true, but that's what a man at my party told me.
The pro-terrorist, anti-american Democrat/Communist "protesters" did not accomplish their goal of making the front pages of the worlds newspapers. What they did accomplish was revealing their identities and tactics to the FBI and other security agencies.
They are too stupid to get arrested.
We should be so lucky.
I heard one radio reporter say that from what he saw, the number of protestors was greatly exaggerated - there were hundreds, not thousands.
Heh. Cops knew what they were doing. :-)
"I think [the police] had a no-arrest strategy because of all the bad publicity they've had in the last few years and the fact that they are facing a lot of lawsuits," said Mark L. Goldstone, a veteran protest lawyer.
Or we have discovered a handful of lefties who were smart enough to come in out of the cold.
They all looked liked mindless soldjers marching to one beat led by lies and more lies. The most important, being making sure they all chanted in unision with no regard to the truth. Only controlled and mindless speak.
Oh, so now it's in the thousands. Yesterday it was 500. Tomorrow, tens of thousands I guess.
People around DC don't call the Post "Pravda on the Potomac" for nothing, c in nyc. As a paper of note, the Post has been spiralling downward in readership and credibility for more than a decade.
Even with all the Ballyhooed noise and expectations from the Media and the net. What exactly did these protesting Butt Monkeys accomplish?
In sound bites on CNN they came across as superb examples of big city Public Education and Collegiate Socialist Indoctrination. Unkempt, ill advised and un-informed. Their arguments, rants and screeds did them and their brethern no good at all.
