The Revolution Has Begun

I am highlighting this article because it it  just an incredible piece of writing and pulls together what has been happening over the past 7 months better than anything I have read. Big H/T to RVO reader Linda for bringing this article to my attention over at Big Government.

DC Tea Party protest

It’s written by Chris Burgard, a writer, producer, Hollywood stuntman, who has received critical acclaim for his documentary “Border”, about the chaos on America’s southern border.

On Saturday he traveled to DC to document the truth and here’s a portion. Just make sure you read it all.

As I looked out down from the balcony of a twelfth story Pennsylvania Avenue  apartment, our host told me that in all of her decades in DC, she had never seen anything like this.

Either the entire corps of the Mainstream Media are entirely incompetent or they are complicit in propaganda of the greatest proportions.  Do not be fooled.

Robert Gibbs said on Friday that the White House was unaware of the rally… he didn’t know who this group was.

Mr. Gibbs, this is not a group. These are the American people, and they came here to remind you that you work for them.

All day long, I saw people pushing strollers. I saw people on crutches and in wheelchairs. But the image that will stick with me the longest was when I saw an elderly woman, possibly near 80 years old, lying in the middle of Pennsylvania Avenue. She was seizing very badly. She had walked almost a mile in the DC heat, but her body just couldn’t take it. Her elderly sister looked on as the paramedics worked on her. I don’t know if she made it, but she was a patriot.

I will put her courage and commitment up against the arrogance of the political elite any day.

Make sure you read it all. Please. One final note. In 1970  Gil Scott-Heron‘s poem “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” became a cultural anthem of sorts. At least in one way Scott-Heron was right. He just had no idea it would apply to the revolution taking place today. The media ignored the run up to Saturday’s protest and then continually under-reported the numbers. The MSM are tripping over themselves to hide us when the pictures clearly show not thousands, not tens of thousands but hundreds of thousands.

The revolution will not be televised … but it will continue nonetheless.

    I think this damning evidence is the final straw, or better, the last nail in the coffin of the liberal media.


    When you can't even count on the mainstream media to do their usual job of misrepresenting the news, but outright omitting it, you don't have to ask why their viewership and/or subscriptions are dropping like a sack of potatoes.  See also the Van Jones story.


    They won't be missed.

    The silence of the leftstream media in the face of the 9/12 rally in D.C. has been deafening. The silent majority is finally speaking up and the anti-American forces that have had the upper hand for so long are covering the ears and cowering in fear.

    My latest blog deals with one of the few liberal journalist who bothered reporting on the D.C. rally and he only did so to belittle America's conservative base. The problem for him, however, is that I managed to video him as he interviewed an Iraq/Afghan war vet who made chop suey of his nickelodeon politics.

    At last the REAL SILENT MAJORITY is starting to speak out and will be silent no more. What took place Saturday in D.C. and for the last couple of months in cities and towns across the country, is a message that the old news media can no longer ignore this giant awakening by many Americans. Truly a revolution has begun! Jim also I have posted this article. :)=^..^=
