So what else is new, except in this case their lies are more than usually blatant in favor of their personal agenda.
The National Park Service’s first estimate of the turnout of Eagles is, wait for it:
The New York Slimes’ number is… “several hundred counterdemonstrators.”
In anticipation of the inevitable spin from the professional journaljizzmers, we’ll admit that you could describe 30,000 as “several hundreds”. 300 hundreds, to be exact. Or maybe the New York Slimes got their count from watching C-SPAN who, in spite of their wall-to-wall coverage of the event, meticulously avoided turning their cameras in the direction of the Eagles. They had plenty of detailed, swooning footage of the Moonbats, however. In fact, the only TV station that bothered to cover both sides was FOX and, as we all know, Democrats run away screaming like frightened little girls whenever FOX is mentioned, so we much doubt that anybody from the “Paper of Birdcage Lining Record” would have seen it. We may be going out on a limb here, but we don’t think that very many of the journaljizzmers at the “Gray Incontinent Lady” are Republicans.
Funny, though, we’d have thought that maybe people claiming to cover the news would be interested in a side that outnumbered the Sheehans by three to one but, hey, their motto is “all the news that fits our agenda, we’ll print.” Or it should be.
Back to the Eagles: His Majesty is completely and utterly in awe of you. Not only did you not have George Soros funding your trip and your demonstration, rounding you up and busing you in like the deluded twits on the other side, you all shlepped yourselves in on your own dime and time, yet you still managed to beat the Moonbats at their own game, sending a clear message to the nation and our troops.
As we’ve already seen, the MSM are already scampering like frightened rats to drown that message, but we won’t let them, will we? Oh no we won’t.
G-d Bless You All.
There is more coverage of this in the Blogosphere than you can shake a stick at, so let’s give you all a starting point:
First, of course, there’s the Gathering of Eagles site itself.
Also, LC & IB Michelle Malkin has done a great job of collecting links and updates in this post, so that ought to keep you busy for a while. Her site is a bit swamped at the moment, though, so it may take a while for it to load.
Another thought before His Majesty goes reading himself: One of the pre-fab signs that were handed out to all the Moonbats was a yellow one saying “US OUT OF IRAQ NOW!”, so when you look at all the pictures, you’ll note (at least His Majesty did) that when you’re looking at pictures of the Eagles, you’ll see a sea of red, white and blue, whereas pictures of the Moonbats show a sea of… yellow.
Quite fitting, if you ask us.
