The crowd spread as far as near-sighted observers could see, stretching for more than an incredible hundred feet in every direction. Patriots expressed their indignation at the federal government and their determination to liberate the US from "its despotic and tyrannical leadership".

The throng would have doubled its size if another gathering vigilant patriots in Nevada hadn't been occurring simultaneously at the Bundy Ranch which was declared to be a "sister gathering".

Operation American Spring falls flat: ‘This is very disappointing,’ Texan says

“It’s a very dismal turnout,” said Jackie Milton, 61, a Jacksboro, Texas, resident and the head of Texans for Operation American Spring, to The Washington Times.

“This isn’t just the one day thing,” Mr. Milton said. “Most of our group [126 from Texas] are going to stay most of the weekend. And when the bikers come in, there will much more. I know Connecticut’s here. I know Colorado’s here. I think Utah, maybe.”

He also said the some of the planned Operation American Spring members who were planning to head to Washington, D.C., instead traveled to Nevada, to give support to cattle rancher Cliven Bundy in his fight against the federal government over grazing fees.

“A lot that were supposed to come here went there instead,” Mr. Milton said.

First Texas secession fizzled out, now 126 Texas patriots traveled to Washington D.C. with many driving 1,400 or more miles to get there for this historic day. They truly are the vanguard of liberty! Listen to the words of these dedicated patriots.


Operation American Spring warns of FEMA roundup, civil war, chemtrails

A group of demonstrators shown on another live stream said shortly after 11 a.m. that they started their march into Washington, but one of them moved the goalposts from the capital to anywhere supporters lived.

“Can’t get to Washington, D.C.? Not a problem,” said a man wearing a black cowboy hat and plastic rain poncho. “Go to your state representative. Can’t get to your statehouse? Not a problem. Go to your county courthouse. Can’t get to your county courthouse? Not a problem. Sit in your own front yard, holding a sign.

So Operation American Spring was a huge success even if the expected throngs didn't show up in Washington D.C. (due to Cliven Bundy drawing patriots away), since we all no doubt saw all our patriotic neighbors in their front yards with their protest signs.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
