One Nation rally

Dave Neiwert was at the One Nation rally in Washington and has been reporting on it at Crooks and Liars, The One Nation rally: A photo gallery 10/03/2010, along with Nicole Belle, Here's Your Enthusiasm Gap: One Nation Rally Draws More Attendees Than Beck's "Whitestock" 10/02/2010.

This is one of his photos that I especially like:


Dave writes:

-- And, um, so much for that Liberal Media Bias myth, eh? CNN barely covered it at all. Of course, Fox carried nary a word of it. None of the major networks -- CBS, NBC, ABC or Fox -- even bothered to report on it. And over at the WaPo, the story reported only "tens of thousands" attended -- when in fact the numbers clearly exceeded 100,000.

-- In stark contrast to the Tea Parties, there was relatively little kookery at the rally. There was a tiny handful of 9/11 Troofers encamped on the back fringes, and there were some far-left radical groups similarly parked along the edges of the rally. But the masses there were clearly representative of mainstream progressive organizations like the NAACP, AFL-CIO, SEIU, and NCLR. Nonetheless, expect to hear all about how the rally was rife with far-left nutcases from our friends in the wingnutsophere. [my emphasis]

No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."
