What If You Threw a Riot and Nobody Came..The Cleveland Story


For Weeks, the media and liberal politicians have been gloating about the huge demonstrations and possible riots that were going to take place at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.  How disappointed they must be.  Rachel Madcow must have been chomping at the bit to declare the republican convention a total failure.  Now, the people who organized the protests are blaming the pitiful attendance on violence from Trump supporters.  Which is funny since the violence has been coming from Trump protesters.

The protests in Cleveland are the smallest seen at a convention in years.  (Is Soros running out of money to pay them?)   Noche Diaz who led the highest profile march of the day had just a couple of dozen protesters with him.  Reporters covering the march greatly outnumbered the actual protesters.  He explained:

“Look, I’ll say this: It’s not a good thing people aren’t here in a bigger force when an openly fascistic candidate is being nominated.”

“Why? I don’t know all the reasons, you’ll have to ask them.”

Code Pink was there, which is strange since they disappeared after Obama took office and initiated several military campaigns and is just now showing up as Donald Trump has the democrats scared out of their wits.  They had very few there either and all they did was illegally pass out tennis balls until the police confiscated them.

Larry Bresler, the executive director of Organize Ohio, who had expected huge turnouts estimated that he had only 2,500 marchers.  (Probably much less)  He used fear as a reason protesters didn’t flock to him in unprecedented numbers:

“With all events there have been fewer protesters than were anticipated — even ours was lower than we anticipated.  I’m absolutely, positively convinced the reason for that is the fear factor.”

“People contacted me saying, ‘boy I would like to attend but I’ve been hearing about all this violence and people bringing guns… and the huge number of police.’ People just did not feeling comfortable coming.”

In my opinion he is almost as big a liar as Hillary.  Who in the hell is going to call someone up to say they aren’t attending?  It just doesn’t happen.

It must be really disappointing when you organize a riot and no one comes.
