Say, a minute? Remember those 30 million American Patriots who were going to march on Washington and evict everyone from President Obama to the guy who fixes John of Orange's martinis? Operation American Spring? Those guys? Well, their 'revolution' kind of fizzled out when they all stayed home to wash the car or clip their toenails or something.

But fear not, patriots! They're back! In fact, they never really went away...

Small problem, though. Judging by the photo, the entire 'movement' consists of 3 people on Segways and a guy on foot. Apparently, they all yell a lot. And now they're asking for fellow 'patriots' to join them. According to Raw Story:

The group published a letter today asking other protest movements to “[t]ake advantage of the powerful vessel OAS has established on the D.C. Mall to get your worthy message in front of America and the lawless occupiers of leadership.”

A video of this “power vessel” can be found below. In it, eight men, three women, and one dog can be seen marching, military style, in front of the White House. When they stop, they turn toward it and yell “Remember! Benghazi!” repeatedly. At the 1:33 mark, a D.C. police officer approaches the group’s leader.

“He might not be a First Amendment friend,” the woman operating the camera can be heard to say.

After a brief conversation, the group’s leader returns to his charges and informs them that it is time to leave for the day. As they leave, they sing a song, the lyrics to which are: “Well here we go (here we go), we’re at it again (we’re at it again) — we’re Operation American Spring.”

That Kenyan, socialist, Muslin tyrant best start packing his bags: this time it's for real.

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.
