While many patriots were in Washington, D.C. this weekend, conservatives and liberals alike railed against the effort. It was meant to wake up the populace and at that the mission was successful.
I have read comments on posts across the internet saying that they had not heard about the movement. This is a problem the right will have for the foreseeable future with the left controlling the narrative on media outlets across the board, and yes I include FOX in that. Bloggers like myself and many others must get behind and spread the news of these events even though they might not agree with them. (How you cannot agree with the message that America needs to rid itself of infestation of rats and traitors in Washington is beyond me.)
Glen Beck, for one, slammed the movement as a violent protest for the removal of leaders in government. This just shows that he never visited the OAS website or read their mission statement:
Field millions, as many as ten million, patriots who will assemble in a peaceful, non-violent, physically unarmed (Spiritually/Constitutionally armed), display of unswerving loyalty to the US Constitution and against the incumbent government leadership in Washington D.C., with the mission to replace with law abiding leadership. Go full-bore, no looking back, steadfast in the mission.
I know the numbers weren’t what they had hoped for but the mission is a just one. Glen Beck slamming it as a violent takeover just sends a wrong message to many of his listeners. If he had been offered a leadership position on the board of OAS he would be singing a different tune maybe. He just trying to his Beck TV empire on cable outlets across America and trying to be a moderate like many of the other media outlets.
He used to have a good message for the right but he has softened his edge lately. First as anti-Bundy Ranch and now as anti-OAS. He acts like a spoiled little liberal that if he wasn’t consulted then it can’t be worth a damn. He recently told his listeners if they didn’t agree with him then they should stop listening and watching his programs. I know of many that will take him up on that. But no matter how he moderates his message those on the left will never be listeners or watchers.
I expect liberal Soros’ army of trolls to come out in full force against anything the right attempts but they are missing one thing about this protest. These patriots have not damaged any property, crapped in police cars, raped any women or littered the lawn at the capital. They can’t have a gathering without committing these acts and many more.
The numbers might have been small but I am grateful and appreciate all those that have showed up. They have conducted themselves with respect for the grounds on which they have marched. I say Thank you to them and those that have supported their efforts. Colonel Harry Riley and his group have made every effort to form a peaceful and respectful protest and they have succeeded. The only thing missing was numbers of patriots.
Americans have become to passive and most don’t care what is happening as long as their own little corner of the world is running smoothly. One day they will see all the damage Washington has caused during the Obama administration and will regret not paying attention to those of us that have payed attention and writing about it on blogs and talking about it on radio shows.
**If you would like to look at some pictures of the event I highly recommend my friend’s blog, http://bigfootsplace.blogspot.com. He was one of those present at the first two days and maybe even today when they met at the Lincoln Memorial and held church service there.
