While over 100,000 people were expected to show up at todays ceremonies marking the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.s I Have a Dream speech, late estimates put the crowd numbers at 20,000. Mike Levine of ABC News reported at 2:10 p.m. ET that unofficial crowd estimates from law enforcement sources put the number at over 20,000.

Maybe if they had announced they were going to burn George Zimmerman in effigy the crowd would have swelled to 25,000.
Well, now that he’s dead I’m sure he’s been voting Democrat for many years now.
Almost has to be unions as social media helped kill the rent a mobs. It seems that the left used to get good responses to calls for rent a mobs to be bussed all over about a decade ago. Minimum wage in cash or at least a free lunch used to be the Dem organizer’s carrot and stick. But it turned out, many times the left’s promises ended up like all of the others. They would stiff the sheep on the money and welch on the free lunch. The morons started comparing notes and at least figured out that joining a rent a mob was a sucker bet.
Little did he know that when he died his movement would morph into a thug-infested entitlement grab.
I was at Beck’s rally; it was huge with the crowd backing all the way up to the Washington Monument. A brutally hot day in DC but the crowd stayed for the entire event and left the area as clean as they found it.
Even though the crowd was smaller than expected, I have a feeling they still trashed the place and left it a mess.
Know of any photos?
Agree. Its all about numbers. I think the turn out would be at least one million, but should be a lot more given the sad state and direction of the country.
They be hatin' Abraham Lincoln? (I presume that is the Lincoln Monument that they are shaking their fists at)
They don't like white buildings?
They are closet Confederates? (I'm also still kind of cheesed off at Abe)
A John Wilkes Booth family reunion?
Wow...in that shot it looks like a few hundred at the most.
During an average Rolling Thunder Rally, you can’t see the grass all the way to the Washington monument.
I wonder what that purple, green, and white flag on the right represents?
with a man voted in as president who claims his mantle. MLK would reject everything about the content of his really bad character.
Even Juan Williams found it offensive that no Republicans were invited to participate. Not even Clarence Thomas or Tim Scott.
I was there too. It took us two hours just to get onto the Metro train 15 miles from DC. Then walked about a mile to stand in the shadow of the Washington Monument and marvel at the crowd. We got there just as Beck was taking the stage. Massive crowd.
Two people standing on a streetcorner, yelling at cars = "Dozens"
Ten or a dozen people walking up and down a street = "Hundreds"
Couple of busloads of people, standing on the steps of a gov't building = "Thousands" or "10's of thousands"
So....20,000 estimated = handful of busloads of union goons trucked in, so that BO doesn't look like a fool addressing an empty arena.
Not that he'd skip the opportunity to hear the sound of his own voice.
(although they sure are doing a reasonable job of looking like it..)
... and the way it looked after the Obama inauguration
Death to all misplaced apostrophes!!
Th at one gives a damn about the USA. Just count the American flags that (aren’t) there.
* That means about 10,000. *
Make that 4500
If it was MSNBC I'd say about 200 people if they reported 20,000.
The inverse if it was TEA Partiers.
