"We run things"
Apparently Freedom Works staged another rally in DC this weekend. The crowd appears to be the usual mix of bussed in birthers, other assorted "ers", gun nuts and old overweight white people. Their numbers are shrinking but they're making up for it by hollering louder.
This crowd was not nearly as large as the one that marched last year, or the one at Mr. Beck’s rally. Ending up on the western slope of the Capitol, it stretched back, stopping just short of the National Mall. But in many ways the crowd was louder than the one that had amassed for Mr. Beck. He had asked people to leave signs at home; FreedomWorks encouraged people to bring their signs, and to get loud.I have a number of these TP types in my comment section at the DetNews and this is a prevailing belief:
“We run things,” Ryan Hecker, a young Tea Party activist from Houston who conceived of the contract, told the crowd. “Not only should we be listened to, we should be shown deference.”They believe this because the GOP and the media treat them as serious, instead of seriously deluded, people. Sometimes I wish we could throw the whole lot of these useful fools into the middle of Montana, or somewhere, and make them live by the rules of their dystopian blueprint for America. Would make a helluva reality show.
