The Left was so out-of-joint over the large turnout at the 8/28 Glenn Beck "Restoring Honor" rally. They were bound and determined to have a huge turnout at their socialist/Marxist "One Nation" rally yesterday, but it didn't turn out so well for them, despite a phony photo from C-SPAN. Pay particular attention to the Gadsden flag in the center of the photo in the story below.
Needless to say, the American Pravda is an absolute disgrace. And they can't seem to understand why the public is tuning them out.
Read from Joshua Pundit:
'One Nation' Rally No Comparison To 'Restoring Honor'
"The Left has been touting their 'One Nation' rally as bigger than Glenn Beck's 'Restoring Honor' gathering, aided by the usual suspects in the dinosaur media.
As a matter of fact, so anxious was the dinosaur media to pimp this that C-SPAN actually used a Tea Party rally crowd shot in their coverage and represented it as a shot from One Nation:
Click on the image here and the Tea Party Gadsden 'Don't Tread On me' flags are clearly visible.
Even the AP admitted the turnout wasn't anything like Beck's rally.
Here's an aerial shot of One Nation from HuffPo (slide 12):
And one from Beck's Restoring Honor:

The difference in the crowds is pretty self-evident.
Aside from the fact that the turnout was much smaller than claimed, there were a number of other significant differences....and Doug Ross has a nifty photo essay of pictures from the event the dinosaur media will never show you that shows these differences quite clearly.
Among other things, the 'Restoring Honor' had no need to bus thousands of SEIU and other union members in to gag the numbers.
Another difference was how the Mall looked afterward.
Beck's crowd picked up after themselves and left the Mall like they found it. The One Nation Leftards? That's another matter:
And as for Obama, far be it from him to actually mix with the commies, grievance cowboys and bussed in union foot soldiers urging people to vote Democrat at this particular seethe-fest. He gave it a miss and ran off to Camp David for yet another vacay.
I also note with interest the presence of NAACP President Benjamin Jealous as a speaker at a partisan political rally, saying that the gathering was 'not the alternative to the Tea Party but the antidote for the Tea Party.'
I have absolutely no problem with the aptly named Jealous voicing his opinions - except for the fact that he was there representing a tax exempt civil rights organization that is legally required to be non-partisan.
The NAACP has degenerated into little more than a front group designed to keep blacks voting on the Democrat party's plantation, and it's long past time that their tax-exempt status was revoked.
UPDATE: Byron York, Marooned in Marin, Warner Todd Houston at Big Journalism and Noel Sheppard at Newsbusters have some notable commentary and discussion on this travesty of a 'grass roots rally.'"
A little to high and mighty to pick up after themselves? Watch this video from Human Events:
