One Nation rally in DC a big flop

Glenn Beck's hugely successful 8/28 Restoring Honor rally at the Lincoln Memorial in DC freaked out the left so badly they decided they needed to hold their own rally.  They called it One Nation and it was organized by unions and a variety of radical left organizations.  Unlike Glenn's strictly voluntary, on their own dime and time, rally unions ordered their members to attend One Nation. It was held on Saturday. 

Michael Graham provides a comparison of 8/28 and One Nation attendance:

"The most embarrassing part?  Not even buses, paid SEIU attendees and grade-seeking students could turn out a decent crowd."
For comic relief, One Nation featured aboriginal comedian Charlie Hill with songs and hilarious jokes like:
“This land is my land, this land ain’t your land, so get the hell off of my–”, and;

“immigration problems started at Plymouth Rock,“ and ”we’ve been fighting terrorism since 1492.”
And, unlike Beck's 8/28 rally, the One Nation crowd wasn't exactly tidy:

I guess Colbert's smart-assed performance in front of congress failed to generate publicity for his rally.

I LIKE(!) the way things are shaping up.

Tea Party - angry, ultramotivated, self disciplined, respect for work ethic, self reliant.

Lefties - angry, semimotivated, undisciplined, lazy and self entitled.

Let the games begin!

I once accosted a person littering blantantly in front of several people in a Toronto subway station. This person, who was a minority btw, said 'there are people paid to pick this up, so what's wrong?' Yup, what's wrong all right? Maybe if pigs like you didn't come out they the cleaners would have time to clean the freaking washrooms! The left and entitled think the universe works in an opposing way to the rest of us. (real conservative)

Right, trash the streets, write grafitti, break windows - no problem, it's just more jobs for union workers.
