I was wondering how many people knew that nearly 100,000 people took to the streets in Raleigh, North Carolina on February 8 in a Moral March to say "NO" to the state's sharp right-wing political turn and "YES" to a new, truly progressive America.
I understand it was not really reported on by the corporate media, is that true?

There has never been a "massive turnout" to protest anything on the "right", because the left doesn't have enough money to pay for "massive turnout".

I love the Anti Frackers.
99% do not even realize fracking has been taking place for more than half a century.

So local politicians are going to pay attention to people from Florida, S. Carolina and all the other states that showed up?

I think not.

Default The real moral march-





Your crowd was 20-30k tops.

When you get to tens of millions like the March for Life across the entire country and 650K in DC alone get back to us.

From the linked article:
Quote:
They came by busloads from Florida, New York, Alabama and Missouri and as far west as Oregon and Washington state
In other words, the usual bused-in rent-a-mobs.

I also noticed that the photos are copyrighted in 2013. Meaning, they are old file photos of some other event.

How about a pic of what actually happened last week?

The left has gotten so used to faking and lying about their agenda, they forget that normal people don't believe them any more.

Hmmm, ted08721 seems to have abruptly vanished from the thread he started, after people started questioning his statements.
