    Saturday Night Card Game (Think Progress Forced To Fold At Restoring Honor Rally)

    Saturday Night Card Game (Think Progress Forced To Fold At Restoring Honor Rally)

    This is the latest in a series on the use of the race card for political gain:

    Think Progress tried really, really hard to cover the Restoring Honor rally with photographers and videographers.  I don’t think it is a stretch to think that Think Progress was hoping beyond hope that it would find a sign or something else that would permit it to portray the rally as racist.

    Apparently, Think Progress drew some really bad cards, because the focus of its video and photo coverage is a rather pathetic attempt to claim that the rally really was a “political rally”:

    Political Rally Or Not? We Report, You Decide

    For months, Glenn Beck has breathlessly insisted that today’s “Restoring Honor” rally was a completely non-political event. ThinkProgress attended the event and documented what we saw. Decide for yourself if Beck’s rally was non-political:

    But not to mind, Think Progress also had photos of t-shirts like this one (unfortunately, TP gave no link as to where to order one):

    Come on Think Progress.  Is that the best you got?

    With all your money, you could do better!  How about a little bluff?  Raise the ante and at least pretend you have good cards.  A headline like this would have been a good bluff:

    “Racists Hide Racism At Racist Rally”

    All is fair in love and the card game.  At least take some of your race cards from a different rally, and play them here.

    It never stopped you before.

    If they can't find it, they make it up.

    I don't know who those two women were at the very end — from AFP? what's that? — but the rest of the video was really good. Was it supposed to show racism? Because I didn't catch any.

    They seem almost disappointed that half a million Americans came out to reclaim Dr. King's message for ALL Americans.

    Make no mistake, there was a political message, and that message is "Washington, you work for us only with our permission…and permission is denied."

    ""Racists Hide Racism At Racist Rally""

    Best quote of the week.

    Don't worry, I'm sure Think Progress will create, er, catch something on tape.

    Why didn't Think Progress take the rhetorical language on the t-shirt and create a post claiming they saw a woman at the rally advocating violence against liberals? They would have had at least 20 other leftist blogs link to it by now. They're slipping.
