DC Tea Party " Epic IRS " Rally Featuring Glenn Beck Bombs Bad


Recommended Posts

Moments before a tea party rally that is loaded with right wing heroes like Glenn Beck, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Michele Bachmann was about to begin the crowd was estimated at just 5,000-10,000.

 

At the height of his fame, Glenn Beck drew 87,000 to DC for his Rally to Restore Honor in April 2010.

 

The Tea Party Patriots promised that this would be the biggest tea party rally since 2009-2010, “At noon tomorrow, we are going to tell the world about how the IRS tried to crush the Tea Party movement,” organizers with the Tea Party Patriots organization said in an email to supporters, “…Thousands of volunteers will rally in the largest demonstration of Tea Party support since 2010.”

 

They aren’t going to even get close to Glenn Beck’s biggest crowd. The livestream host for the rally, The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft, estimated the crowd to be at 5,000-10,000. I would say that may be on the high end of things, but it could be a potentially realistic estimate for the overall crowd by the time it is all said and done.

 

Here are some photos from moments before the rally began:

Look at all the green grass over Jim Hoft’s shoulder:

A crowd shot shows the sparse scene:

It is a major failure for a rally that has been hyped so hard across conservative media to draw such a small crowd. For the sake of comparison, Jon Stewart’s Rally to Restore Sanity in 2010 drew 250,000 to DC.

 

Unless there are about 90,000 people stuck in traffic, it looks like this rally won’t be the biggest tea party event since 2010.

 

It is rather pathetic that an event featuring Glenn Beck, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Michele Bachmann can’t draw a bigger conservative crowd.

 

Once again, the power of the tea party has been greatly exaggerated.

 

The rally only runs from 12-2 PM, so it is not looking good for a huge turnout. The people speaking at and attending this rally won’t believe it, but the IRS scandal has already been debunked.

 

If this rally was supposed to be a sign of tea party strength for 2014, the Republican Party may be in a lot of trouble. The Tea Party is still dead, and not even the bogus IRS scandal can bring it back.

Noon on a Wednesday, when most of us were, you know, working, you mean? :lol:

 

I had a meeting at 10:00 and another at 1:00...I couldn't squeeze in a trip to DC. :lol:

 

Typical con response when they lose: deny they lost. Spin it. Deflect. If only they knew how this makes them look, and how much better admitting the truth would make them look.

 

You must get some good weed...what's the last progressive event that drew 10,000?

It's been a very bad month for them. In what has been a very bad year for them so far. The rest of the year looks even worse.

Gosh, then where did all those people come from for Beck's Lincoln Memorial Rally? See, you guys never lose, do you. When you draw a zillion people, it shows you're in the majority. When only a few show up, it's because all of you are good, hard-working Americans with jobs and can't be bothered to show up even when it's a good cause.

 

Sure.

That's a different topic. Worth talking about, to be sure, but you can't use anything from it to justify the small numbers at this rally. But I'm forgetting. You folks never lose no matter what happens. ;)

No Republicans work on Saturdays.

I'll resist making a joke about Democrats not working. (oops)

 

I didn't say none work on Saturday, but can you honestly fail to see how a Wednesday at noon is a lot less accessible than a Saturday?

Barak Obogus drew just 4500 people in Berlin compared to 200,000 a few short years ago. Even the left is fed up with Barak Obogus' attempt to create his version of Animal Farm. The only supporters he has left are the kook fringe and those that are paid to support him with our tax dollars.
