By the way, what you described sounded rather like a movement in decay, with the leadership putting on a show and the followership, less than edified by the spectacle, drifting away. Sounds like the leadership of this shindig is getting out of touch with the people even on the Left, and sinking into Leftist-internationalist totalitarianism.
Just look at the photos at the top of the thread. Notice that they weren't even able to draw enough attendees to fill up the plaza directly in front of the steps. Then go back and look at the photos from the actual MLK speech from 1963, given on those same steps; there were so many people there that they extended all the way back to the other end of the Mall and beyond ... the photographers couldn't even capture them all in any one shot.
A lot of people at yesterday's rally may have gotten disillusioned and drifted away after only being able to take so much political BS, but the truth is that the people that believed in MLK's principles distanced themselves from this bunch in disgust years ago and wouldn't be caught dead at such a public gathering today.
One again, it's proven that Hate doesn't sell. Someday the RATS will learn this ... but not until after they learn to stop hating in the first place.
