I have not experienced such sustained belly laughs in a l-o-n-g time... the snarknado surrounding Operation American Spring has to be the funniest sustained joke I've encountered in years.
The whole revolution was a joke before it even began. On one of the more fringe-y right wing sites, a concerned "patriot" wrote:
I sure hope you have researched the colonels bio since he served at NSA and was in army intelligence with a book written in psychological warfare.
I joined for a few months and watched the chat site. The colonel says 10 million, but I talked to one of the organizers and that person told me no more than 2 million. Then, there was the resignation of 4 or 5 of the original organizers of the OAS. For me, I was told that I was a troll because I asked a few decent questions such as bathroom facilities provided, where to meet, etc. At the most the chat site had from 12-36 people and they were clannish to outsides.
The concept is wonderful, but I doubt if they get more than 100 people show up and they being mostly from the east coast.
How many revolutions were thwarted by inadequate access to toilet? As Morrissey would put it, "I would revolt tonight, but they haven't got a shitter there."
Meanwhile, the fever swamps of Free Republic (not gonna link) are strangely quiet, with only two threads concerning the event, which many of the Freepers have concluded was a false flag event, though there are some hilarious conspiracy theories:
Those motel/hotels could have been booked by Democrat Politicians to prevent Marchers from having a place to stay. When they call for a room, well we have no vacancies. This should have been co ordinated with a huge political backing and reservations to be successful. Now it looks like the people aren’t interested in taking the country back.
Meanwhile, far to the west, a couple of Bundy supporters took to crowdsourcing sites to fund their efforts, with predictably hilarious results. I imagine old Cliven will tell them to shove it when they come to him for a handout.
It's been one hell of a week, and I, for one, am LOVING IT!
