Today is the Day for Klayman’s Epic Failure

Today is the day we’ve all been waiting for, the day of Larry Klayman’s “second American revolution.” He says that “patriots” are going to converge on the White House “in the millions” to tell President Obama to “put the Quran down, get up off your knees and come out with your hands up!’” Anyone wanna take bets on how many people actually show up? He thinks it’s going to be a huge success:

Take our Reclaim America Coalition, for instance, which is proving to be a big success. For virtually the first time in modern history, we have assembled a host of conservative, libertarian and other public-interest groups and activists to work together for a common goal: to wage a Second American Revolution and peacefully and ultimately remove the tyrant evil fool in the White House, as well as corrupt Republican leaders like Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. This coalition is unique; for years I had been trying to get these groups and activists to work together, but ego and other cynical calculations got in the way. Now that the country is hanging by a thread, in the words of our great Founding Father Benjamin Franklin, we all realize that if we do not all hang together, we will hang separately under the oppressive and dangerous rule of our government leaders, of which Obama is the snake’s head.

Beginning at 10 a.m., Nov. 19, in the park just across from the White House, Lafayette Park (it is befitting of this French general who helped us whip Britain to gain our independence) that We the People, armed with courage and moral rectitude, as well as the divine grace of our Creator, will begin to fight back against government tyranny. We will not only serve notice that we will no longer endure tyranny from the corrupt leaders who have driven the nation to near destruction, by reading our renewed declaration of independence, but we will speak the truth about what needs to be done to right the ship of state for ourselves, our loved ones and to preserve the freedoms our Founding Fathers and their patriotic hordes fought and died for.

Coupled with this will be the masses who are being called to Washington for this non-violent uprising; we will serve testament to the onlooking nation and world that the people are in charge, not the likes of Obama and Boehner. If wise, the Mullah in Chief ultimately will retire to his favorite golf course in Tehran and the half-sober House speaker to his tanning salon in Georgetown.

Then, when our Reclaim America Now Coalition fires the first peaceful shots at “Lexington and Concord,” we will reconvene some weeks later in Philadelphia, at the City Tavern, which once accommodated the first Continental Congress, the one that gave us the original Declaration of Independence at Constitution Hall. There, delegates of the tea party and other patriots from all 50 states will deliberate, plan for the rest of the revolution and elect a government in waiting, ethically and competently poised to take over the reigns [sic] of a real government responsive to the people.

The Second American Revolution will succeed, because We the People will have the courage to make it so. And, to this end, I command you to join our forces, come to Washington, D.C., Nov. 19, 2013, attend the start of our Second American Revolution and make your voice heard. The time has come for action. The time is over for talk. Let us put both Obama and Democratic and Republican leaders out to pasture, where they can wallow in the manure they have encased us with, and let us reclaim our own destiny free from their political slime, incompetence and tyranny, so help us God!

I called a psychic hotline and got a much more accurate prediction: A few hundred people will show up, a long line of wingnuts will say lots of inane things and the rest of the country will yawn and go back to watching American Idol. And Klayman will declare it a great victory anyway.

    I always wonder if these people never had a 6th grade civics class. The definitely don’t seem to understand how elections work or what treason is.

    Isn’t that every day?

  3. alanb says

    There are enough speakers scheduled that if each one brings four or five family members, that will add up to decent-sized crowd. But I don’t understand why it was scheduled for a Tuesday. Does Larry think that all his revolutionaries are unemployed, or does he think that his revolution is so important all commerce will stop to support him?

  4. erichoug says

    Does Larry think that all his revolutionaries are unemployed[?]“

    He probably knows that all of his revolutionaries are unemployed. Whenever I’ve seen pictures of these events it usually consists of my grandfather, some older Haus Frau’s and people for whom gainful employment means the pumpkin patch at Halloween and the tree lot at Christmas.

    Maybe if they pray more? Oh wait, that obviously hasn’t worked so Dog must be happy the way things are.

    Lafayette Park (it is befitting of this French general who helped us whip Britain to gain our independence) that We the People…

    Translation for the non-DCers: “the fact that we were relegated (or relegated ourselves) to Lafyette Park is a feature, not a bug!”

    For at least the past, oh, 20 or so years, Lafyette Park has been where the smaller, crazier protest movements have been allowed to do their thing. Its much smaller than the Ellipse (the field on the south side of the WH) or the National Mall, which is where organizers of actually big protests stage their events.

    Now, on the positive side, picking Lafyette means Klayman probably didn’t need to get any permit to have his protest. On the negative side, holding it there is a tacit admission that he doesn’t expect more than 50-100 people to show up (at most).

  7. BobApril says

    Been searching Twitter for any posts from the event. Can’t find anything at all. You’d think out of all those hundreds of thousands of people, at least a few would be sharing the love online…or maybe there’s a mistaken assumption in that thought.

  8. catbutler says

    we will reconvene some weeks later in Philadelphia, at the City Tavern

    Crap, I should have known that idiot would head here at some point. He does know that the Gayborhood is only a couple of blocks from Independence Hall, right? I guess he hasn’t seen the tourist ads Philadelphia put together?

  9. D. C. Sessions says

    That, or (since it’s a Tuesday in November) it’s election day and he’s about to vote Obama out of office.

    If you haven’t yet, peruse the comments section on that post. It’s hilarious. The paranoia and cool-aid are strong there.

  11. says

    I’m starting to believe that WND has two strong followings. The target audience who buys into their nonsense, and a second one who visits to gape at the craziness.

    … the half-sober House speaker …

    Hadn’t seen this allegation before. Has anybody else heard of Boehner having a sobriety problem?

    Very, very brave of you to compare yourself to someone who might have actually been hung if they lost. You who will only get snickered at. Go on Braveheart!

    I can report from my location – 7 blocks distance to the White House – that the marauding hordes have yet to reach this part of the city. Perhaps the celebration of their imminent victory over the Kenyan usurper has yet to begin.

    Today is also World Toilet Day.

    Coincidence? I think not!

    Perhaps that’s why one of the lead stories on the local NBC affiliate’s web page is about a man burned in a freak porta-pottie accident, rather than any stories on the “revolution” taking place at the White House.

  16. a_ray_in_dilbert_space says

    “…half-sober House speaker…”

    Calumny! He doesn’t do anything halfway. I think he’s pretty well fully hammered most of the time.

  17. rabbitscribe says

    “… to preserve the freedoms our Founding Fathers and their patriotic hordes fought and died for.”

    Sort of interesting to see “hordes” used in a non-pejorative sense. My mother and those of her ilk would be pleased.

  18. John Pieret says

    There are some more pictures, from a site friendly to Klayman, here:

    http://www.bizpacreview.com/2013/11/19/over-40-groups-converge-on-wh-to-reclaim-america-msm-ignores-87461

    Like RWW’s photos those show the crowd is sparse. More amusing, is the trumpeting of “over 40 conservative groups and organizations to rally in front of the White House to demand President Obama’s resignation and ‘reclaim America.’” If two people showed up from each group, that would about account for the “crowd.”

  19. Moggie says

    Not a very racially-diverse crowd, by the looks of things.

    If two people showed up from each group, that would about account for the “crowd.”

    What abouts passers-by? If you were in DC and saw a group of angry seniors waving banners, you’d go over and take a look, wouldn’t you?

  20. michaellatiolais says

    to preserve the freedoms our Founding Fathers and their patriotic hordes fought and died for.
    Lok’tar ogar! For the Horde!

  21. says

    Prediction: Klayman will claim the “mainstream media” underreported attendance at the event, and that there were thousands and thousands of “patriots” there.

  22. matty1 says

    in the words of our great Founding Father Benjamin Franklin, we all realize that if we do not all hang together, we will hang separately under the oppressive and dangerous rule of our government leaders, of which Obama is the snake’s head

    Clever guy that Franklin, predicting that Obama would be a snakes head centuries before he was even born. Maybe he had access to the OFTM.

  23. matty1 says

    The overall tone of this is. Klayman has written his own version of the declaration of independence and will go to a park in DC to read it out, a few weeks later he plans to visit a pub in Philadelphia.

    Moggie @ 28:

    Well, if a large percentage of the angry seniors appeared to be bikers, probably not. But that could just be me.

    Qouth Klaymation: “… the oppressive and dangerous rule of our government leaders, of which Obama is the snake’s head.”

    Why does this come to mind?

    Dingo

  27. Moggie says

    Nemo:

    This didn’t even get coverage on the local TV news in D.C., that I’ve seen.

    Censorship! That proves Obama is scared!

  28. davem says

    According to MSNBC less than 100 people showed up.

    Just as well. If more more turned up, you’d have trouble fitting them all in the Philadelphia pub.

  29. Michael Heath says

    Re the Time article alanb links to @ 42; we get this:

    There were no announcements about the person best fit to replace Obama. When asked who he would rather see in his place, Larry Sherwood from Virginia who held a sign that read “Obama Lies” said he hadn’t yet considered it. ”Maybe Rand Paul,” he said. “But he’s getting kind of old” [sic, period missing in linked article]

  30. dingojack says

    Rand Paul – who better to lead the party of old white guys?*
    Dingo

    * unless Clint and his empty chair are available

    Ummm, Ron Paul?

    Re dingojack the chihuahua @ #44

    Actually, ole Clint who is pro choice on abortion and who’s attitude toward same sex marriage is, “I don’t give a fuck who marries who”, wouldn’t be a good fit.

  33. Al Dente says

    ”Maybe Rand Paul,” he said. “But he’s getting kind of old”

    According to wikipedia, Rand Paul will be 51 next January.
