Following a weekend of protests by truckers, veterans, and patriots of all stripes, a group of leftist sycophants is planning a rebuttal Tuesday.
Organizing for Action, the ostensibly nonprofit group whose sole purpose seems to be campaigning for Barack Obama and his failed policies, is set to rail against conservatives during a noon rally at the Capitol building in Washington, D.C.
To mark the “start of the third week of the government shutdown,” an invitation to OFA supporters encouraged participation in the highly partisan effort.
Detailing exactly who he feels is to blame for the current stalemate, the group’s executive director recently published a Twitter comment in support of the rally.
Jon Carson said those in attendance will be able “to say #EnoughAlready to the #TeaPartyShutdown.”
As we have seen with a number of previous rallies in support of conservative causes, this past weekend’s trucker strike and veterans march were roundly ignored or discounted by the mainstream media. In its analysis of this leftist event, however, one can anticipate much more favorable reportage.
While OFA has attempted to provoke activism such as this in the past, Tuesday’s rally will be the first of its kind at the Capitol. Despite the inclusion of the word “organizing” in its name, though, the group has experienced difficulty in attracting participants to its cause.
Earlier this year, for example, precisely no one showed up for an OFA-sponsored climate change rally in D.C.
Still, the leftist media has a vested interest in propping up this failed presidency. As with the Occupy movement before it, the press can use its power to present a convoluted imbroglio as a principled stand for America. Likewise, when patriots from across the nation converge to address a wildly overreaching federal government, they are painted as lunatics — if they are acknowledged at all.
Luckily, alternative and social media allow people to see what is actually going on at these events, thereby making up their own minds on important issues. In the marketplace of idea, the values embraced by patriotic veterans and other concerned citizens will resonate much more than a few political hacks demanding even more government handouts.
