In case you haven't seen this event on your local channels.
This is the first great conservative anti-statist manifestation in American history. The
conservative movement, which developed in the post-WWII, Cold War environment has now
fully matured into the most significant political movement of the 21st century. I believe that this
day could be referred to in the not too distant future as the day that changed America . This was
the day the great silent conservative majority finally found its voice.
Many of the attendees were quite meek and timid and were unsure of exactly what to expect, this
being the first time in their lives they’d been involved in a protest movement. Their fears
evaporated early in the day and I saw people reveling in the camaraderie , the joy and sheer
civility that was exhibited at the entire event. Chants of “Freedom, freedom, freedom”, “No more
czars! No more czars!” carried through the air without the slightest hint of rancor or incivility
which is the norm at the leftist rallies I have photographed over the years.
The two photos above show a tiny fraction of the two million ABC estimates attended. I saw
signs and heard lots of comments comparing this event to Woodstock . At the time this photo
was taken, around 1:00 p.m., Pennsylvania Avenue was still jammed completely, and the mall
was packed from the Capitol Building past the Washington Monument . See aerial photos here.
Protesters came from every state in the union. This man came from San Antonio , TX . He said
that he was really sorry he hadn’t brought his family. He stated that being a black conservative
he was afraid to expose his children to what he expected would be a lot of liberal abuse. He was
thrilled with the tenor of the event and the fact that no liberals were present to harass him. He
spoke about how incredibly intolerant the left is to black individuals who don’t bow to the party
