Sept 12, 2009 Protest in Washington D.C
Estimates go as high as 2.5 million people that participated in this Washington, D.C. protest! Look at the pictures and decide for yourself.
Looks like some Americans are not happy with what is going on in this country.
How much coverage did you see on the evening news and other places?
The Web cam was shut off at the Washington Mall
This came from one of our subscribers. Thanks Virginia. She was there.
Other subscribers sent in more pictures. Are we awake yet? Especially see the last one.
"I was there, and I say more than ever~God Bless America...Keep up the fight, there are millions out there that feel just as we do...It was awesome, I no longer feel alone in our fight to ' TAKE AMERICA BACK' OVER 2.5 MILLION PEOPLE, IS THAT AWESOME OR IS THAT AWESOME"... VIRGINIA
Subject: MORE GREAT pics and news of Sat DC protest
We were EVERYWHERE in DC......we jammed the streets and the mall. DC got a lot of money from the "POLITICAL LYNCH MOB" as CNN called it.
It appears that the Capitol surveilance cameras, which would have given further proof of the huge numbers of Americans in attendance at the D.C. Tea Party, were turned off! Coincidence? Yeah, right!
Obama ducked out of town, with his mirror and his teleprompter in tow. He went campaigning in Minnesota ......
This event had been promoted as a taxpayer “tea party,” but the crowd’s concerns were wide ranging, from outrage at ACORN and Obama’s socialist cadre known as Czars, to Obama’s untruthfulness. Protesters also displayed signs mocking Nancy Pelosi and others for smearing the grassroots movement as “astroturfers” and as an angry mob.
The two photos above show a tiny fraction of the two million ABC estimates attended. 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. I spoke with others from California to Maine, Florida to Alaska.
These Ohioans took a day off their rodeo bullriding schedule. They said they’ll be back at it tomorrow.
In the very center of the photo, above the Silence is Consent – Can You Hear Us Now sign, you can see Pennsylvania Ave., which at this time is totally blocked with protesters who cannot move forward to the Capitol area. Sorry, full up.
While Obama did the cowardly thing and ducked out of town, history was made in DC. Video of traffic cams shows 1.5 to 2 million march on 912 rally.
Hundreds of thousands have converged on DC - not activists, not professionals, not tools of Soros orgs or mainstream media lemmings. People who have never engaged politically before.
This ain't manufactured.
Down on the mall -- its not "tea baggers" or 'town hallians'. It is Americans.
The line of protesters completely filled Pennsylvania Avenue for blocks, all the way to the capitol, according to the D.C. Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency. People were chanting "enough, enough" and "We the People." Others yelled "You lie, you lie!" and "Pelosi has to go," referring to California congresswoman Nancy Pelosi.
Others are waving U.S. flags and holding signs reading "Go Green Recycle Congress" and "I'm Not Your ATM." Some men are dressed in colonial costumes. Police on motorcycles and horses watched as the marchers passed.
Obama - you will not get away with the coup. This is America. Not Europe. Or Kenya. Or Indonesia. Or some banana republic. Congress, 2010 is right around the corner.
According to ABC, a man called FreedomWorks office in D.C. and said, “I put a bomb in your building, bitch.” This forced the evacuation of 50 people who were working to prepare for the event and get out the word about it.
A FreedomWorks staffer told ABC News that the organization’s offices at 601 Pennsylvania Avenue were evacuated on Friday afternoon by DC Metro Police because of a bomb scare.
DC Metro police has confirmed to ABC News’ Jason Ryan that the DC Metro police had, indeed, evacuated the organization’s offices after being told by the organization that it had received a bomb threat.
The threat came when a man called the FreedomWorks main line and told the organization’s female receptionist: “I put a bomb in your building, bitch.”
The FreedomWorks staffer who spoke with ABC News said that the organization has received multiple threats but that for some reason, the DC Metro police thought that this one was credible enough to evacuate the building.
Having dispatched units to and responded to countless bomb threats in my military and law enforcement career, I can tell you that this would have shut down FreedomWorks operations for at least an hour or two as police swept the building for a bomb and any other evidence. It also would have hampered FreedomWorks’ resources as staff continued to work with and provide information to police even after the dust began to settle.
Over 2.5 Million Patriots Crowd into Washington D.C. for Tea Party! And what a day it was, being there myself to see that many people gathered together to bring change to a government out of touch with "We the People" was a sight to behold, in fact you could not see where they started and where they ended. I ended up sitting beside the masses and holding my sign that said "We will stop yellin' when ya'll stop lying." among other items of interest. I got my picture taken by hundreds of people and thumbs up from many others. I could not complete the march, but was so thrilled to be there and take part in this history making event... had a great time talking with people that could not make it either and that was so much fun. I was either in the march or sitting on the sidelines for over 4 hours and people were still coming by when our group left, although we only had the road closed for a certain period of time and then had only the sidewalk to use, but in all there was 8 lanes on Pa. Ave. and the two sidewalks full for a long period of time.
I had an absolutely fabulous time, until getting the subway back to Vienna where our bus dropped us off, what a nightmare. They never dreamed that we would be out in force like that. I can't imagine what time the rest of the crowd got out of there, but a lot of them stayed in motels so that eleviated some of the problem. What I most wanted to tell you that people were all so great and friendly, we only saw a few idiots Acorn type distractors trying to cause trouble, but they got nowhere, because for the most part everyone ignored them, so they were talking to themselves.
I have never in my life-time seen that many people in one place at one time...What an awesome sight. We was in the bus all night going, marched and attended the protest and then on the bus all night coming home, so everyone must be exausted today, and many still on the road to where they live. Those from far western states will be traveling still, I hope there is rest for those so weary...
Everyone who sat home thinking that no-one would show up, and they were not going to waste their time, what you missed out on, was a missed opportunity that you will never be able to redue in your life time. It is an awesome experience that I am proud to say I took part in. If government does not do what we ask of them, the next one will be twice as many there, and we will shut the entire city down. I hope to hear from anyone else that was there, with your experiences...Virginia
