The 9/12 March On Washington, 2010

On Sunday, FreedomWorks held its second annual  9/12 March on Washington.  Speakers at the rally, this year focused on the Contract FROM America, a plan FreedomWorks has been asking politicians to sign and pledge to follow.

The forecast said rain, but the most it did was light drizzle and misting. By the end of the rally, the sun was trying to break through the clouds.

FreedomWorks President and CEO Matt Kibbe estimated the crowd size at around 100,000 Tea Partiers, a crowd smaller than last year’s march, something he said may be partly attributable to the fact several 9/12 rallies were going on simultaneously nationwide and that Fox News personality Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally was held in Washington at the end of August.
Gateway Pundit has this report on the St. Louis 9/12 tea party, which attracted approximately 14,000.
The DC march began at 10:00am with a non-denominational service at the Washington Monument, led by Reverend C.L. Bryant. The march began at 12 noon, and headed down Pennsylvania Avenue to the steps of the U.S. Capitol.
I took tons of pictures and videos during  the DC march, and later at the rally, focusing  on the signs because I love them so much.
Videos soon to come.

  2. So many original, and very very clever signs to admire! Loved dwarf with the sign, how could we be considered exclusive when we have midgets underfoot carrying signs along with us? With such fervor, this movement can’t help to take the country and back to better times like the 40’s. All this and at war and prospering, too!
    Also, notice the signs had no misspellings, contrary to to lefties that love to make up evidence like false signs to make us look bad. Thank you Deb for showing the truth! You and Fox News ROCK!!


  3. Cool pics. I’ve been to several rallies and protests since 4/09 and here was a noticeable difference in tone at this one. Anger and anxiety has been replaced with determined optimism.

  5. I was disappointed the Michele Bachmann didn’t speak, but besides that it was a good time.

    I can’t find a picture of my favorite sign, when I saw it I didn’t have my camera as I was on my way back from the ladies room. It said “Put down your gold clubs and pick up the constitution”. When I tried to find him again I couldn’t.

    Tito was excellent, I think the best speaker of the day.
