What a day! While ABC was reporting 60,000 attendees at the Washington, D.C. rally for our republic, this time lapse photography suggests that the number of people in Washington today was nearer to 2 million people.
At 10 a.m., D. C. police estimated the crowd at 1.5 million. By 4 pm, highways into the metro D.C. area were closed to one lane, with buses being turned back. And still there were lines of Patriots marching to the Capitol. The ROAR of the crowd was deafening; thrilling; and ‘across time’.
What do you think?
And that’s just the crowd that marched. When we arrived at the Capitol, there were tens of thousands of people already there. The aerial photography will show the Patriots occupied the Washington Mall from the Capitol to the Washington Monument, and quite possibly to the Lincoln Memorial.
Michelle Malkin has more great video here.
Congratulations and thanks to the D.C. Metro police, fire, and EMS services…who provided expert security, secured the Patriots’ route, and escorted the ONE obot who was carrying a sign “Public Option Now” as Patriots followed him with American flags, Gadsen flags, and shouting “how’s that ‘hopey-changey thing going for you?’ We in America protect the right to free speech; the D.C. police acted appropriately. He was escorted off the grounds of the Capitol…
And thank you, Glenn Beck. A true American Patriot!
