Yesterday, in case you didn’t notice, was the start of the revolution to depose Trump and Pence. The revolution was well-financed enough to take out a full-page add in the New York Times (Soros, do you suppose?) but not interesting enough to draw a crowd of more than a few hundred even in the most militant college towns.
Portland — that hotbed of SJW ferment — was quiet with a sparse crowd. Seattle’s big “do” was more empty space than bodies and seems to have knocked off early. Perhaps participants were worried about the snow in the weather forecast; a dusting of snow has more chance of disrupting traffic out here on the left coast than the demonstrators did. In Austin, Texas, counter-demonstrators evidently outnumbered the revolutionaries (some reports said by two or three to one). NYC, despite the giant screaming ad, and Boston were … meh.
Over at the Cabal we watched live streams from several cities courtesy of one dedicated Cabalista. But even she eventually concluded the revolution was so dull she had better things do to than monitor it.
This morning I went looking in the media for after-action reports and found … nothing. Nothing in the NYT, nothing in USA Today, nothing in the Google newsfeed … nothing anywhere. There must have been at least a smattering of coverage yesterday, but the revolution (“It begins on November 4”) seems to have used its 15 minutes rather poorly. If you were on scene or saw photos or video to indicate any significant action, please speak up in comments.
Surely we haven’t seen the last of the SJW/antifa/hate-everybody crowd. But I expect they’re all rather embarrassed today.
