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.
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.
