Patriots And Moonbat Dissonance

Moonbattery: Massive Turnout for Restoring Honor Rally: "It was a great crowd. The folks in my little expedition party guesstimated it at 400,000 to 700,000. This was the most subdued, polite crowd I've seen. The police were standing around with nothing to do; there wasn't even a candy wrapper laying on the mall at the end of this thing. The crowd seemed more cross-sectional of America than the Tea Party-flavored 9/12 event, as though a lot of middle-of-the-road, less political types had climbed on the bandwagon since 9/12. As Beck requested, nobody brought signs; there was not one to be seen in the probably 1/2 million strong crowd. The only people with signage were the handful of folks protesting Beck. They stood around in small groups here and there, trying to join up confrontation in front of their and the media's video cameras, but the massive conservative crowd just swept around and by them like a powerful river going around an inconsequential pile of rocks. Everyone seemed happy to have protesters exercising their rights as Americans and speaking their minds, which seemed to surprise the hippies, who were apparently waiting for baton-wielding Nazis to descend on them at any moment. The hippie's cognitive dissonance, as it slowly sunk in that nobody minded them being there and people welcomed their participation, was interesting to observe."
