Protests in Washington today against growth of government. Even the New York Times says "the magnitude of the rally took the authorities by surprise." Estimates ranged from tens of thousands to over a million. Make fun of these citizen-activists if you want, call them names if you must (brownshirts, astroturfers, nazi's, teabaggers), but ignore them at your peril.
These are not your run of the mill leftist paid protestors, these are average American citizens, who will vote. And, even though most of them aren't Obama voters to start with, their sheer numbers will give strength to those who might not think it PC to oppose Obama.
That is why the legacy media will not report this fairly, if at all.
But, kudos to the NYT for covering the rally, if even in their usual leftist slant.
