Today is the day that Tea Party Patriots and Bundy Militiamen nationwide are supposed to be descending on Washington, D.C. to overthrow the Marxist, Muslim, Kenyan usurper in the formerly “White” House, along with his evil henchmen Joe Biden, Eric Holder, John Boehner, and more. Organizers promised a minimum of 10 million dedicated revolutionaries, and up to 30 million. The attendance would be so overwhelming that President Obama and the other defilers of the Constitution would be forced from office, leaving patriots like Ted Cruz, Allen West, and Jim DeMint to fill the void. So how are these Founding Frothers doing?
Any objective analysis of that photo from today’s massive rally would have to concede that the American Spring was a resounding success. They drew at least three billion protesters, if you count the disembodied voices in their heads. And this historical achievement could not have been realized without the help of Fox News.

Admittedly, Fox came to the party a little late. But they did show up, and their contribution provided both promotion and helpful dishonesty. The headline pasted atop their lie-riddled Fox Nation website read “Militias Marching On DC.” The article was sourced to the “Moonie” Washington Times and made no effort to validate the claim that Militias, or anybody else, were marching on DC, or anywhere else. However, it was chock-full of pseudo-patriotic hyperbole and overtly violent rhetoric.
“A group of self-described revolutionary-style patriots with a million mobilized militia members are heading to downtown Washington, D.C., this week to bring a simple message to political leadership, from President Obama to House Speaker John Boehner: ‘Get out.'” [...]
“The group expects between 10 million and 30 million similarly thinking Americans to meet them in the capital on Friday for a rally that’s being billed as a sort of “Arab Spring” for Americans.” [...]
“[Organizer Col. Harry] Riley said he hopes the event will go forward peaceably, but that so far, peaceful protests haven’t brought citizens much luck. He also said that more than 1 million militia members have already mobilized for the event — and that projections of 10 million to attend aren’t pie in the sky.” [...]
“We have no faith in the ballot box any longer.”
The organizers of the American Spring, or as Rachel Maddow calls it, “Big Nutball Day,” must be so proud of their achievement. Inspiring this kind of outpouring of support for treason isn’t as easy as it sounds. Perhaps they might have been even more successful if they had advertised the event as the “American Spring Break.” That sort of promotion could have doubled the turnout, complete with videos of “Patriots Gone Wild” and girls dressed up as Betsy Ross flashing their boobs in wet TEA shirt contests.
