“Field millions, as many as ten million, patriots who will assemble in a peaceful, non-violent, physically unarmed (Spiritually/Constitutionally armed), display of unswerving loyalty to the US Constitution and against the incumbent government leadership, in Washington, D.C., with the mission to bring down the existing leadership…One million or more of the assembled 10 million must be prepared to stay in D.C. as long as it takes to see Obama, Biden, Reid, McConnell, Boehner, Pelosi, and Attorney General Holder removed from office.”
The report from DC:
He (Riley) claimed one million “militia members” committed to the rally but so far only a few have been seen. Some have reportedly split to Bunkerville to support Cliven Bundy’s continuing campaign against the federal government. The Wire
So far crowds have numbered, at most, around 300 to 400 people.
I called Colonel Riley, thinking I’d question him about the shortfall in his operation to force most of Washington’s pols from office. He answered the phone with a surly “Where the hell are you?”
Um…I’m at home.
“You and every other fake patriot out there, bud. Let me tell you, I need you to get on your ATV and ride over every Indian burial ground between your front door and Washington so we can get this revolution started. And bring ten million of your friends, too.”
I was actually calling to get your reaction to the light numbers at the Operation. Do you think you overestimated the appeal of your principles to the average American?
“Bite your tongue, man. The vast majority of Americans want this government overthrown so we can turn this nation back to the days of the first American Revolution, the only really salutatory era in our nation’s history, because armed white rural Americans controlled everything.”
How come nobody showed, then?
“Well, it rained pretty hard Friday. A lot of our guys that prefer to dress up as Revolutionary War musketeers don’t like to get there tri-corner hats wet. Those lids cost money, you know.”
As I recall from the history books, Colonel, the first American Revolution was an all-weather affair. Hats were wetted. I think it’s safe to assume entire outfits were ruined. Not to mention heads blown off in battle and toes frozen off at Valley Forge. You’re saying that your plan to overthrow the government failed because people forgot to bring enough umbrellas?
“That, and I sure wished Cliven Bundy hadn’t picked this weekend to have a hamburger cook-out with free slaw out at his place. I hear it was quite a picnic.”
Ten million people showed up there instead of in DC?
“Well, probably not ten million. The rest of them just went and saw Godzilla, as far as I can tell.”
Still, it has to sting. After all, when Louis Farrakhan, who many people think is as loony as you, announced he was having a Million Man march, nearly a million men showed up.
“Let me tell you something about the Negro. They know how to show up for a march, goddammit.”
