Below are several pictures of the July 4, 2010 rally in Washington, DC which received no news media coverage. And look at all the Old White People. What? They aren't all Old White People.
This gathering was an extremely important historical event. It was the first great conservative
anti-statist manifestation in American history. The conservative movement, which developed
in the post-WWII Cold War environment has now fully matured into the most significant political
movement of the 21st century. This day could be referred to in the not too distant future as
"the day that changed America". This was the day the great silent conservative majority finally found its voice.
Many of the attendees were quite meek and timid, and were unsure of exactly what to expect, this being
the first time in their lives they'd been involved in a protest movement. Their fears evaporated early in the
day, and the people reveled in the camaraderie , the joy and sheer civility that was exhibited at the
entire event. Chants of "Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!", "No more czars! No more czars!" carried
through the air without the slightest hint of incivility or rancor typical of leftist rallies.
The two photos above show a tiny fraction of the 2 million attendees [according ABC estimates].
There were plenty of signs/posters and lots of comments comparing this event to Woodstock.
At the time this photo was taken at around 1:00 p.m., Pennsylvania Avenue was still jammed completely,
and the National Mall was packed from the U.S. Capitol to all the way past the Washington Monument.
Protesters came from every State of the Union. This man came from San Antonio, Texas. He said that he
was really sorry that he didn't bring his family; his reason: being a black conservative, he was afraid to
expose his children to what he thought might be a lot of abuse from left wing radicals and extremists. He
was very pleasantly surprised and thrilled at the tenor of the event, and the fact that no liberals were present
to harass. He spoke about how incredibly intolerant the left is especially to black individuals who don't kowtow
to the party line.
These Ohioans took a day off their rodeo bullriding schedule. Mike Pence (R-Indiana) was one of the
speakers who addressed the crowd, who said: "After years of fighting runaway government on this Hill,
you people look like the Cavalry to me. I believe we are on the verge of a great American awakening. . ."
San Diego radio host Mason Weaver said : "I came here because I thought you might want to hear
a black man speak without a teleprompter. This government is trying to make a nation of dependent
people. Americans have always been independent people. This is not a Republican thing; it's not a
Democrat thing. It's not a black thing or a white thing. It's an American thing. We the people
are telling them [Obama and the government]: 'No more! We've had enough!' "
At the very center of the photo, above the "Silence is Consent - Can You Hear Us Now" sign,
--believe it or not--, is Pennsylvania Avenue, which was totally packed and blocked by rally
participants, who were unable to move forward to the U.S. Capitol area.
There were notable differences in the behavior of these particular attendees compared to those who
While there seemed to be an atmosphere of friendly camaraderie at Woodstock, the truth is: the
people at the Woodstock festival came for the drugs, the sex, and the rock 'n' roll music.
The D.C. crowd demonstrated true kinship among the people based on shared values and intellectual
understanding of what America is and how its future is imperiled by big radical government. No one
was having sex in the Reflecting Pool or anywhere, and there was no projectile vomiting on the steps
of the Capitol. There were no warnings to avoid "bad acid" which would send one on a trip to the
This was not only just a different era, but also a very different level of civilized behavior and thought. And by
the way, the DC crowd didn't leave tons of garbage behind---in fact, they left no trash at all.

While Nancy Pelosi has accused tea-partyers of carrying swastikas to imply that they are
Nazi sympathizers. The recent D.C. event was actually full of placards with hammers & sickles
and words like "Socialist", "Communist", "Marxist" etc. which refer directly to Obama's tendencies.
It would be fascinating to see how long the Democrats will tolerate this without commenting. Either they
disagree with the message(s) or they confirm the references to Obama's leanings.
Ever present at Tea Parties are the "Sons of Liberty" re-enactors. The couple on the left is from Tennessee
while the young lady on the right is not, but she joined in the photo. The couple's costume was hand-stitched
by the lady on the left.
GOD BLESS AMERICA!
