Katrina vanden Heuvel the Editor and Publisher of The Nation is a congenital liar.
In a letter she sent out to her ultra left wing drones she says:
Just days ago, Glenn Beck led the astro-turf 9-12-09 “Taxpayer March on DC.” Compared to the millions who have marched for civil rights, equal rights, and gay rights, and against the war, Beck’s 70,000 would be small stuff — except for the tens of thousands waving Confederate flags, anti-gay hate signs, and shouting “White Power!”
Unfortunately none of what she says is true.
- Glenn Beck didn’t lead the march, in fact he wasn’t even in Washington on 9-12-09. He covered the march from New York.
- 70,000 is the far left’s attempt to minimize the number of Americans who came out to march in defense of the Constitution against the onslaught of assaults on our rights being put forth by the president and the congress. The actual number is between 2.7 and 1.7 million making it the largest protest march in North American history.
- There were no more than a handful of confederate flags. I only saw one. But the lefties have no clue about American history and therefore they continually confuse the Gadsden Flag (Yellow with coiled snake and “Don’t Tread On Me” motto) with the confederate flag. The same thing happened in NYC when someone educated by lefties asked us why we were carrying the confederate flag at a tea party protest when, in fact, the flag he was referring to was the Gadsden Flag.
- No one was shouting “White Power”. Not once. Never. A complete fabrication from the queen of dissimilitude.
It seems her mind is well equipped only to do battle with her fantasy conservatives.
