Obama’s Organizing for Action Holds Massive Vigil Outside of NRA Headquarters (Up to 30 People)

We haven’t seen crowds like this since Sandra Fluke went on her Free Contraceptives tour, last Fall.

O the humanity:

Obama’s left-wing agitation group, Organizing for Action, called for a “Day of Action” on Friday to promote stricter gun laws and judging from this picture, about 15 people showed up. The LA Times reported that the protest drew “about 30″, which seems like a high estimate, but maybe some of the throng was off camera.

The protesters, dressed mostly in black, marched silently in front of the NRA’s glass-and-concrete building in a suburban Fairfax neighborhood, the quiet punctuated by the occasional honking of cars passing by. “2050 Gun Deaths Since Newtown,” read one sign. “Don’t Want Background Checks? What Are You Afraid Of?” read another.

“What we want to do is prove we’re not afraid of the NRA,” said Joanna Simon, a retired government consultant who organized the vigil as part of the Reston-Herndon Alliance to End Gun Violence, a group of former Obama campaign volunteers.

The small turnout underscores one of the challenges facing Organizing for Action as it gears up its efforts to promote Obama’s legislative agenda. The group, set up by top advisors to the president, is relying heavily on local volunteers to sustain its work.

Volunteers? They weren’t paid to picket? Oh – well that explains the poor showing, I guess.

Compare the pathetic death march above, organized by the president’s own top advisors,  to the Day of Resistance grass-root rallies that were held all across the nation, on Saturday.

Via Twitchy, this rally took place  in Concord, NH:

Via Doug Ross,  an even larger crowd attended a Day of Resistance rally  in sunny Phoenix:

Around 1000 rallied in Olean, NY:

What this guy said:

Don’t laugh too hard at Organizing for Action’s meager showing. I suspect that if we give them enough time, we’ll see larger crowds resembling the Occupy mobs. They’ll be the same people, too, with the same totalitarian goals as their Master.

Wanna see how popular Obama’s gun agenda is on Twitter?

See Stacy McCain: Hey, Nice Try With the #DemandAVote Spambots #p2! Jacked and Busted! #tcot

OK, so to push their gun-control agenda in Congress, Team Obama started the #DemandAVote hashtag, encouraging the Left to re-Tweet Obama’s message (i.e., demanding that Congress vote on the Democrats’ unconstitutional gun-control legislation).

That hashtag was instantly jacked by #tcot, but then @DefendWallSt discovered that many of the messages in favor of the Obama agenda were from spambots — phony sockpuppet accounts, usually with a blank “egg” avatar, evidently created by some Democrat P.R. operation to give the illusion that this message was more popular than it actually is. In a phrase, Twitter “Astroturf.”

FAILWHALE!

    Wonder how much crap garbage they left on the grounds and sidewalks? Wouldn’t surprise me, either, if there was a pile or two of feces around there (not counting the piles holding the signs).

    And if this continues, I’d bet my neighbor’s farm the “Organizing for Action” folks will instigate some violence, and it wouldn’t surprise me one bit if it was deadly violence to boot. All from the peace-lovin’ folks as shown…

    Speaking of Sandra Fluke, she is now making the rounds for Planned Parenthood and Obama…soon to be at the University of Kansas (March 27th) and…is this a tour through the universities? Is it legal when universities invite only or even predominantly left-wing speakers? Anyone know?

    Fluke in Kansas (should anyone want to attend!)
