The story seems to be a hoax.
I have no doubt that liberal groups could bus in 200,000 union members, gay rights and other left-leaning pressure groups into Washington DC if they wanted to. But the question is whether or not it actually happened, not whether it could have.
But any large demonstration like that would require a caravan of busses, and loads of organization, a huge effort.
Hearing about it after the fact , when before the fact there wasn’t a public hint that the event was going to happen before time, just doesn’t meet the smell test, especially since I’m just 5 hours away in a town with lots of unionists who would have had to have been mobilized to achieve the crowd claimed.
There never was a rally with 200,000 ‘coffee partiers’. Newsweek twisted the truth about HOW MANY PEOPLE SIGNED UP FOR THE COFFEE PARTY’S *FACEBOOK* Page! Liars!
