Since the MSM seem to have in place a general media blackout of the Gathering of Eagles, anyone out there gonna keep us posted with the numbers? Pics? Videos?
Fox is covering them. There are some very big men in the crowd, men the pacifists wouldn't mess with.
FOX is giving it a mention. They are not giving the anarchists a lot of attention, but each update has mentioned our side.
Did you hear them say there had been a little "pushing and shoving?"

checking Youtube for anything worth posting...nothing yet.
I see shadows on the ground--that's means at least a little bit of sunshine to temper the cold...
Watching C-SSPAN or listening to all the radio news, you'd think there were nothing but anti-American peaceniks converging on DC, and that's all.
I've been seeing a little coverage
about it. Crowds ain't too big.
One reporters said that therwe
appear to be only one or two thousand
antiwar protestors, versus their
permit for 30,00, and their
braggadiocio, of expecting hundreds
The reporter gave the impression
that the GoE counter protestors
was larrge, but from the camera
angles shown, i didn't see more
than 50 to a hundred.
Apparently there were a couple
of shoving matches between some
on each side, but the cops shut
em down pretty quickly.
The reporter said that the
cops seemed to be particularly
nervous for this protest.
All the camera angles i've seen,
are street/eye level...as one
cynuic once related to nme, was
to make a small group seem larger
than they actually are....When
crowds are actually large, they do
a lot of cajmera shots from roofs
No helicopter shots yet.....;o)
I heard about a week ago that Rolling Thunder
had put out the call, but to bus in, and not ride their bikes there.
They may be worried that it wouldn't take much for some real American men to turn anti-war sheehanista pussies into stains on the sidewalk.
bump so I can follow through the day....
Hopefully there are plenty of video cameras scattered throughout our gathering ready to capture any trouble that the anti's may start. Our side will always need visual proof against the lying "word" of the lefties. We'll be here waiting for more pictures and reports, especially for a picture of the "sea of Red, White and Blue" Flag City!
This is great! This is really great! I truly wish I could be there!
For the moonbats, maybe. The pro America crowd is huge. From the GOE site:
The turnout has been AMAZING! At about 1030 the moonbats had maybe 400-600. Our crowd was huge, spread out over three areas (the main rally point east of the Wall, the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, and congregated in front of the paltry herd of moonbats. I am guessing we had at least 4,000 at that time, probably more. Now, the march of the moonbats isnt schedule to start until noonish, so it will grow, but we still have folks arriving all the time. This ol cynic is truly inspired. Thank you everyone!
FNC FemPorter says the Anti-Crowd
now appears to be about 4K to 5K.
thank you for this thread.. Last minute MAJOR van problems prevented my trip. Bummer.. but glad you have a thread up with pix.
who is Jeff ...with the pix.. FReeper maybe?
You have that one right Prairie
You and me both! 99.9% of the time, you couldn't pay me to live out there in all that traffic/people. My sister does and when we go visit, I say give me Spencer Co. with only 5 stoplights in the entire county! But today, I'd love to be there!
