A Spectacularly Awesome Turnout for the Patriotic “Operation American Spring”

confederate-flagMillions upon millions of proud Obama-hating Americans took some time off from watching Fox News to descend upon Washington D.C. in an effort to force President Obama and other elected officials from office.

Well, maybe not the 30 million that event organizer Harry Riley claimed would show up (that would be about 10% of the U.S. population).

“It’s a very dismal turnout,” said Jackie Milton, head of Texans for Operation American Spring.

Yes, there were dozens upon dozens of dedicated patriots there to show their overwhelming support for everyone who hates President Obama – even though most of them can’t even name five facts about him.

That’s irrelevant!

And even though we have a legal process which we can impeach a sitting president, or other elected officials, that didn’t stop these proud anti-government patriots from gathering in Washington D.C. to show how displeased they are with having an African-American president – uh, I mean to show how angry they are with the Obama administration and Congress.

These people are proud small government supporters.  They’re so devoted to their belief in small government that many of them saved large portions of their Social Security checks to attend this historic event.

But their dedication to being anti-government didn’t stop there.  There have been numerous reports that some of these people took time out of their busy schedules supporting laws that attack abortion rights, pushing for a Constitutional Amendment to ban same-sex marriage and supporting legislation that would allow for businesses to discriminate against homosexuals to show just how serious they are about their small government beliefs.

Though it’s not just Obama that they’re targeting.  They want Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnell, Eric Holder, and John Boehner removed as well.  Presumably because those are the only government officials in Washington D.C. that 94% of the people who showed up actually know by name.

The event organizers are also making the sane, and not at all ridiculous, request that up to thirty million proud Americans be prepared to stay in Washington D.C. for as long as it takes to see Obama and his fellow cronies removed from office.

And for those of you who might ask, “How could thirty million Americans afford to go an undetermined amount of time without working?” the answer is simple – they couldn’t.  Well, not without seeking some sort of welfare.  And nothing says “small government” like encouraging around thirty million Americans to essentially quit their jobs and rely on government assistance to survive while they camp out protesting big government.

Will this massively successful historic event bring about real change?  It will if these dozens of people have anything to say about it.

But there’s one message that these people have made perfectly clear – they love our Constitution so much that they’ve gone out of their way to stage this rally showing that they don’t understand anything about it.

That’s love, people – that’s love.

But I say we should all commend these proud patriotic Americans for taking this brave stand against the injustices that they were told about on Fox News. Because without these 10’s of people who showed up today, Jon Stewart might not have had anyone to mock on Monday.
