    9/12 Tea Party Photo: False Image Spread By Anti-Reform Activists

    Tea Party protesters trying to tout the size of their march on Washington last weekend have been passing around a photo of a packed National Mall. But the picture is years old.

    Politifact asked Pete Piringer, public affairs officer for the D.C. Fire and Emergency Department, if the rally was big enough to fill that space. Piringer said no -- and moreover, the picture can't be from 2009.

    What a riot. These people were so disappointed that the didn't get several hundred thousand that they had to pretend they had over 1 million!

    Michelle Malkin (from Fox of course) said it was 2 million. (She wasn't there and neither was Beck?????!!)

    Once again, when I say Fox lies, believe me.

    lmao........I love the way its being described by the network news.......the protestors as "racist". Its a beautiful thing. Why? Because the vast majority of America IS white and you now what?? People are getting sick and tired of this crap that if you criticize the black president, you're a racist. Fcukk that.........and every time they go there, it only feeds the emerging fire in the silent majority:funnyface::funnyface::funnyface::rofl:



    The worm is turning s0ns.......................

    I can't figure out WHO, if ANYONE Malkin works for, but it certainly doesn't appear to be any of the major news outlets (or the minor ones). I did find this link where she is stepping all over herself trying to find an explanation for the initial 2 MILLION estimate, which was later downgraded to 1.2 MILLION, which was later downgraded to "pretty darn big"......pathetic.

    Michelle Malkin » Celebrating the 9/12 rallies; Turnout estimated at 2 million; Update: How many?; FreedomWorks in error
