As Jay Tea of Wizbang fame reports, the coalition supporting and organizing the rally was a list of just about every socialist, communist, or racist organizations on could think of, including:
Why would anyone in Middle America (meaning most if us), want anything to do with any of these groups, let alone support their overblown rally? The answer: no one did.
Sojourners: the far-left allegedly religious coalition secretly funded by George Soros.
The SEIU: Barack Obama's purple-shirted Brute Squad.
Rainbow PUSH Coalition: Jesse Jackson's non-profit that he used to pay off his mistress after she bore his illegitimate daughter. Hired former Congressman and convicted sex offender Mel Reynolds after his release from prison.
National Council of La Raza: "La Raza" is Spanish for "The Race." They've faced numerous charges of being racial separatists and supremacists.
AFL-CIO: A subsidiary of La Cosa Nostra, Inc.
Democracy For America: Howard Dean's private PAC.
International Socialist Organization: the name says it all.
Detroit Democratic Socialists Of America: see above.
Democratic Socialists of America: see above, again.
Communist Party USA: COME ON, PEOPLE!
ANSWER Coalition: literally, a Communist front group.
Coffee Party Progressives: yet another astroturfed attempt to discredit the Tea Party movement.
Code Pink: the anti-war psychopaths and sociopaths who found common cause with the lunatic Cindy Sheehan.
As Cap'n Teach reports, the turnout was..umm...nowhere near what the organizers expected.
Apparently at one point One Nation was hoping for up to 800,000 attendees. If they got 100,000 I'd be real surprised. That's nowhere near what Glenn Beck got for his rally this summer (~500,000) and a small fraction of the 9-12 Tea party rally held last year.
[H]ere’s the best photo I can find of attendance. No overhead shots as of yet.
Lots of empty space, eh?
The One Nation rally can be summed up with one word: FAIL.
