Leftwits Try to Top Beck With October Rally in D.C.

The leftists are trying to emulate both Glenn Beck and the Tea Party movement by having their own march on D.C. and it is coming in but a few days. They are claiming that “hundreds of thousands” of their extreme leftist compatriots will gather at the Lincoln Memorial on October 2 for a left-wing bacchanalia at our nation’s capitol.

They are calling it “One Nation Working Together,” and it is yet one more left-wing, extremist attempt to employ Orwellian language to name an event because, Lord knows, they don’t include the millions of conservative Americans in that “one nation” title!

Here is what they are saying of their poor attempt to emulate Beck:

On Saturday, October 2, 2010, hundreds of thousands of Americans from across the country will gather at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. to demonstrate our re-commitment to change.

The One Nation March will feature human and civil rights leaders, labor leaders, environmental and peace activists, faith leaders, celebrities and sports figures — all marching together to help Put America Back to Work and to Pull America Back Together. And to help reorder our national priorities so that investments in people come first.

It’s time to stand up and march for the change we voted for. Use the march resources below to plan and promote your trip.

Surely this will be a test of the left’s strength just ahead of this midterm election. Will they be able to get the “hundreds of thousands” that they are claiming they are going to field? Or will it be little else but thousands of union members bused to the site and paid o be there in order to give a false impression of a great crowd?

We’ll find out in less than a week.

So who are some of these “hundreds of thousands of Americans” that are sponsoring this left-wing riot? Along with several Big Labor unions, just about every whacked out, far fringe group is pushing this. There are communists and socialists, militant gays, race baiters, anti-war nuts, “social justice” types and Greenies of all sorts.

Here is a partial list of the fringe and extremist organizations sponsoring this event (in no particular order):

  • La Raza
  • Code Pink
  • Communist Party USA
  • Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition
  • Solidarity, a socialist, feminist, anti-racist organization
  • National Gay and Lesbian Task Force
  • Green for All
  • Queers for Economic Justice
  • American Muslim Association of North America
  • War Resistors League
  • Rainbow Push Coalition
  • Peace Action
  • ANSWER (anti-war)

It is also interesting to note the unions involved in this rally. One wonders how many of the dues paying members of these unions understand that their money is going to participate with racist groups like La Raza, militant gay groups, and communists and socialists?

  • AFL-CIO
  • United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW)
  • American Federation of Teachers (AFT)
  • US LAbor Against the War (AFSCME UAW, SEIU and others)
  • International Union of Painters and Allied Trades (IUPAT, affiliated with AFL-CIO)
  • AFTRA (radio and actors union)
  • Utility Workers Union
  • UNITE HERE
  • National Education Association (NEA)
  • United Steel Workers
  • Transport Workers
  • Service Employees International Union (SEIU)
  • … and others

I don’t know about you but I can’t wait for the mayhem that this thing will generate. And it will be very interesting to see the numbers that turn out. Likely you’ll see thousands of professionally printed signs instead of handmade ones (indicative of a lack of grassrootiness) and you’ll be presented with a sea of purple shirts, red shirts and T-Shirts sporting other union colors showing that unions are the only real source of participants here.

More interesting will be to see how the Old Media establishment cover this thing. We’ll see inflated numbers and all sorts of happy-talk coverage, for sure.

But, we’ll see, won’t we?
