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.

    At this point any ‘sane’ person would sit back and wonder – “perhaps I am wrong?”
    However as is proved and approved by FOX, don’t accept FACTS – they are irrelevant !
    When I was about 11 and did something stupid because someone else told me to – my parents used to say “if they told you to jump off a cliff – would you ?”.
    I can only assume therefore that these groups are made up of 10 year-olds.

      I’m afraid, Squire, your first sentence falls to bits just five words deep…

      • thesquire1

        It was merely a point of perspective – you know – they thing they lack totally !

  • Carlos M. Morales

    Obama was so afraid of all those people (20 ) that showed up, that he promised to step down as president in 2016 and NOT seek re lelection..They declared ” Victory ” !!!!

      And that same afternoon, President Obama and VP Biden went out for burgers to The Shake Shack in DC…they must have been terrified…

    seems like an awful lot of trouble to go through just to avoid having to vote

    Please tell me that the picture of the person apparently trying to fly the “Stars and Bars” isn’t from the rally!

    If it is from the rally, it meant that out of 20 people, at least one of them didn’t see any problem with saying they were there to save the govt while flying a flag of open revolt to the govt. Not to mention the racial connotations link well to so many tea party revolts openly flying the Confederate Flag, Swastikas, and racial epithets.

    Something about evil eventually displaying its true form.

    Bwahahaha! This is by far the funniest article I’ve read about this ridiculous event. I love you so much Allen Clifton!

  • Matt Petersen

    I had a feeling they were in trouble when I clicked on an “Operation American Spring live video” link for this glorious event that was posted on another FP story and it was not showing any live feed from Washington DC, rather some mullet head on a grainy webcast taking viewer calls on his cell phone (on speaker phone of course). What a joke!

    Goes to show you Fox News or Hannity never mention that this was to take place ,just goes to show you they are in the tank themselves ,have there money so I guess everybody ought to join the rest of the loafers and get in line fore that EBT card.

    • Truth Hammer

      Why aren’t you in D.C, faketriot?

      • Peoriaboy

        Truly sorry I couldn’t make it and even though it may be a poor show up you can thank the media especially Fox News for not supporting it or at least giving it some coverage but then again when the media guys are making ten or more million a year they would rather keep that high paying job and let the rest of America go down the tubes like those that are so patriotic on this blog.So truth hammer are you there or are you busy with your hammer.

      • Truth Hammer

        So you stayed home to cry on the internet instead? Good one, clown.

    • Oria Biddle

      They wont remember unless it’s Benghazi

  • webone

    One fool apparently trying to fly a confederate flag sideways is a rally?

    Rain: the patriots kryptonite.

  • Judy Jackson

    This is awesome. The comments on the different OAS websites are HILARIOUS. Much more entertaining than anything on television this weekend.

  • Tonberry_King

    Hopefully, the Bundy ranch fiasco opened up people’s eyes to the intellectual bankruptcy of the “anti-gubmint” movement which coincidentally arose after the first African American president took office.

    Whether you agree with them or not it is wrong to mock them. It is our right to stage peaceful protests. It was similar actions these ppl display that helped pave the road out of the Jim Crow era. And I think all of us can agree there are problems within our government systems. I’ve researched the Progressive Movement and the Tea Party groups. Both sides pretty much agree on certain things they just don’t agree on what to do about.
    God help our gvt if these two sides ever realize just how much they have in common and come together.
    Personally, I try to avoid extremes. However, the gvt has long overstepped its mandate and it should be cut down to size. There are many functions that would and could be better managed by states.
