    Agreed--the KKK is a fringe group with no affiliation with any mainstream politics. (I thought that's what I said earlier.)

    Too low brow.

    I'm sure that if someone wanted to subject themselves to the pain, they could find shows where he was defending protesters during the Bush years.

    He's really not very funny.

    Selective outrage?

    No, I'm not the one who introduced the KKK, and I'm also not a he.

    This is priceless. Conservative wing-nut alternative reality:

    Despite mainstream media attempts to characterize turnout as in the thousands, a spokesman for the National Park Service, Dan Bana, is quoted as saying “It is a record…. We believe it is the largest event held in Washington, D.C., ever.”

    National Park Service Admits 9/12 Demo Largest On Record

    Reality:

    The National Park Service says it will rely on a media report that says 1.8 million people attended President Obama's inauguration.
    David Barna, a Park Service spokesman, said the agency did not conduct its own count. Instead, it will use a Washington Post account that said 1.8 million people gathered on the US Capitol grounds, National Mall, and parade route.
    "It is a record," Barna said. "We believe it is the largest event held in Washington, D.C., ever."

    .
    This is the beginning in terms of becoming 'mainstream'... this 'beginning' is accurate though... The people are finally seeing the complete disconnect that is present between government and the people. People are tired of being lied to from every angle, and this is the culmination of that disconnect... but it is still just the beginning in terms of where this is going.

    I hope that this can be resulted without violence, but it seems the people are starting to draw those lines.

    So, out of the 100's of thousands to millions of people there, you checked everyone of their skin colors and verified?

    There could be a variety of reasons that it's mainly white people that were drawn to DC that day.... NONE of them having anything to do about race in any way.

    This is the culmination of YEARS of efforts in bringing people a level of awareness as to how their apathy is being used against them... it's easy to be apathetic when things are good... it's a whole different story when your at risk of losing your house, the government is infringing on just about every productive element of society, are threatening to end the second ammendment, and a variety of other BIG issues.

    Sure Glen Beck fans count for a portion of those people, he's trying to take over that whole movementr and maintain an air of credibility.

    I watched through that, and out of all the people mentioned, there were a couple 'eccentrics', but only a couple of them seemed stupid.... pretty much all of them explained pretty adequately their specific gripes.

    Perhaps an indication of your gender in your personal information would prevent future mistakes.

    Meh about the numbers, many of us Libertarians, and Right wingers, only protest one way. This ain't the time.
