King George Didn’t Listen Either

According to the Washington Post report, that’s what one sign at today’s Taxpayers March on DC said. And the headline in Britain’s Mail Online said it pretty well:

“Up to two million march to US Capitol to protest against Obama's spending in 'tea-party' demonstration”

The headline of the New York Times claimed attendance of “thousands” and the Washington Post claimed “tens of thousands.” However, looking at the picture that accompanied the Mail Online story, we’re inclined to think the Times and Post seriously underestimated the number who attended. Take a look:


Two other things. First a great shoutout to the many, many groups who sponsored the 912 Taxpayers March on DC, e.g., FreedomWorks, National Taxpayers Union, Grassfire.org, Tea Party Patriots, and so many others. Second, take a few minutes and listen to Lloyd Marcus sing the American Tea Party Anthem.

Finally, take a few minutes to write (just click-on their online contact forms) or call Virginia's Senators Webb and Warner and Arlington County's Rep. Jim Moran. If needed, cite one sign that caught the eye of the Mail Online reporter, “Go Green! Recycle Congress.”

  • Senator Mark Warner (D) -- write to him or call (202) 224-2023
  • Representative Jim Moran (D) -- write to him or call (202) 225-4376

And brickbats to the Washington Post for changing the headline from their original "Anti-Government Protests Draws Tens of Thousands to DD.C." to "lashing out at the Capitol." which appeared on page A1. What a way to slur hundreds of thousands if not two million American patriots who marched on Washington.
