Conservatives Rally Against Media Corruption at the Cleveland “Occupy the Truth” Protest and March


Pat Dooley

1,500 patriots gathered in downtown Cleveland today to rally against media corruption in Cleveland, Ohio.

Conservative favorites Dana Loesch, Michelle Malkin and Sonnie Johnson headlined today’s rally in Cleveland.
Politomix has terrific photos from the rally and march.

** And Diana Price, a Cleveland Tea Party leader, sent this link for more photos from today.

It was the nation’s first “Occupy the Truth” rally against media bias and #Occupy domestic terrorism.

Michelle Malkin, Andrew Marcus, Jenny Beth Martin, Dana Loesch and Chris Loesch.

The historic march and rally was organized by me and friend Andrew Marcus, director and producer of Hating Breitbart.

Some leftist troll decided to start an argument with Dana Loesch… Big mistake.

After the rally we marched through downtown Cleveland to the Federal Reserve – the building the #Occupiers had planned to bomb before they were arrested.

We also went out to the Cuyahoga National Park Bridge to bring awareness to the terrorist activities of the Democrat-endorsed Occupy movement.

We brought our rally mascot – Stinky Stanley the Occupooper – to the bridge with us.

My niece and her friend Amy made Stinky Stanley for the march and rally this week. Stanley marched downed Superior Avenue with us to the Federal Reserve.

Here’s the banner that we marched down the street with.

We brought the banner with us to the Cuyahoga bridge.

    did even ONE member of the MSM show up to cover the event?
    And more importantly, were you honestly expecting that they would?

    Fifteen hundred. It’s a grand start.
    That’s twice as many than show up at an obama rally, and three times as many than show up to see Joe Biden make an arse of himself.

    Cheers to the first fifteen hundred Patriots to speak out publicly against the marxist media!

  • Oliver

    the problem like this is that the Right is so naive about this stuff, and therefore continue to make the same basic mistake over and over again, i.e. believing that these leftie loons think the same way we do.

    they are not honorable, nor rational, and when you continue to assume that they are, your messages and events are doomed to fail.

    you can’t teach a dog to quack… it’s just not in his DNA.

    Assuming the MSM would “suddenly wake up” or cover the event fairly (or even cover it at all!) was a pipe dream.

    Fifteen hundred people attend a rally over a story spiked by the MSM? I’d call that significant. And lookee here at the potty-mouthed trolls messing around on these threads. My, oh my, somebody is upset!

    Why would that be? Could it be Obama’s disappointing turnout for his campaign rallies? Or perhaps his disappointing fundraising results? Or maybe it’s the polling results that show that seniors favor the Ryan plan? Or that a consensus of voters favor voter ID laws?

    Or maybe it’s just this:

    Google is my friend, today.

  • MicahStone

    I’m wondering, how many “reporters” from the socialist media were there to cover this important event. (Just kidding, of course.)

  • Oliver

    #13, yeah but this protest was directed AT the MSM so the whole concept was a head-scratcher in my opinion.

    And sadly, many people who need to hear the message of media corruption still get their “news” from the MSM or from the left-wing blogosphere. Those of us who frequent lists like GP already know they are corrupt, in-the-tank for Obysmal, and basically useless.

    It’s just preaching to the choir.

    OT But other Americans fighting corruption and big government and liberal media bias

    ‘We Did Build It’: Small Business Owner Taunts Obama Motorcade


    On a beautiful August day when most people are enjoying the weather and leisure time, self-made man Al Letizio organized a protest against the President of the United States.

    This New Hampshire businessman set up signage outside his business to let Mr. Obama know that in America, the free market still works and small businessmen aren’t obligated to grovel on bended knee to thank the federal government for allowing them to exist.

    Al Letizio owns a small food service business that just happens to be situated along President Obama’s motorcade route to his rally in New Hampshire today. Mr. Letizio, like so many other small business owners across the country, is annoyed at the President’s infamous, off-prompter declaration that business owners in America “didn’t build that.” In fact, it’s quite the opposite. The federal government is funded by people like Mr. Letizio.

    Check out these pictures from earlier today as Mr. Letizio hung a “We Did Build It” sign on his storefront as Obama drove by, with Romney supporters cheering him on.

    If you hadn’t noticed the purpose of this event was to take the fact of media corruption “to the masses” by having a VERY public rally. The American Pravda propaganda complex can try to ignore what happened, but real people were able to choose to listen to the truth without being spoon-fed pablum.

    Hosting a public and peaceful protest is most definitely not “preaching to the choir”.

    All it would take is one so the “proper” talking points can then be disseminated to others to “speak truth to power”. With all the coverage the American Pravda propaganda complex expends, it still sounds like one solitary person does the actual reportage, the rest are just (ill-trained) parrots.

    This election has so many similarities to the 1980 election it is downright eerie. An incumbent POTUS that was totally hell-bent on destroying America, both domestically and overseas, with a main-stream media propaganda complex trivializing the Republican candidate as being simultaneously a dangerous fanatic and unappealing to voters.

    Now who won in 1980? And won in one of the largest electoral defeats of a sitting president in American history.

  • mg4us

    The fact that this gathering was held and MSM ignored it only plays into the narrative that MSM is useless. . journalistically bankrupt. . .

    The MS M commit the sin of omission as well as and much more than commission.

    And While this rally was happening up North, Ryan was knocking the wind out of Obama’s Sails. . President Zero is a Failure

    Looks like Florida, after Obama’s failed Hopey Changey, will choose R&R. . .Romney/Ryan

    I don’t engage the foul-mouthed trolls or the ones that try to steal others’ identities. Those need to be ignored.

    The trolls I whack at are ones that try to sound like they have a clue, are somewhat civil in the beginning, and think they score points by “engaging the enemy in their lair”. Too bad they wander in here so clueless that when they get challenged they get angry we don’t roll over and revere them as intellectual giants.

    What has the trolls (and the other Leftists) in a tantrum is that long after the demise of their supposed ‘grass roots’ #occupy movement has died, we still get 1500 people out to rally on short notice. Meanwhile, their supporters are infighting and scattered to the four winds, their president has been a disaster, their media is dying, their ideas have failed, two entire years of complete ownership of the government got them nothing and the rest of the country in an uproar, their leadership lost them over 600 seats nationally in the last election, and Hope and Change has been a total lie. In short, everything they believe is EPIC FAIL.

  • Militant Catholic

    Let’s have a look at the last three years of Obama, Marxism, Socialism, and Liberalism:

    record deficits, record unemployment, record bank failures, record foreclosures, record number of months unemployment above 8%, record death toll of US troops in Afghanistan, record number of golf games, US troops deployed in at least 12 MENA and central African countries, secret involvement in Syrian war, Solyndra, Gunwalker, debt to GDP ratio 103%, over half the United States suing to get out of Obamacare, record number of unelected, unaccountable czars, lobbyists still running the White House, secret meetings in cafes offsite of the White House to avoid having to tell who they’re meeting, Michelle Obama with over forty personal assistants, Obama lost over 600 seats for the Democrats in the 2010 elections…

    This is why the trolls are in such a rage. Things were supposed to be GREAT by now with their ideas implemented. Instead, Socialism, Marxism, Communism, and Liberalism have all proved catastrophic failures. The country is in shambles. And where is their president? Out playing golf and fundraising… again.

    If in fact DOJ/feds are scrutinizing OWS, I’d say it’s about time. Multiple cities have had incidents of rape, assaults, theft, deaths, and destruction of property. Tea Party rallies leave their sites cleaner than they found them and no crimes committed. I don’t have much faith in AG Holder upholding the law – he’s too busy suing states trying to defend themselves and blocking voter ID requirements. He’s the worst AG this country has had – no surprise, look who picked him. The only movement the vermin of OWS have is left on the hood of police cars.

    We’ve got too many schools we need to build…?

    I’ve seen a few of the posts that were stricken. They deserved it. If you bother to read the comments, you’ll find that disagreement with Jim, in and of itself, has never been the basis for a deletion. Further, racist and foul comments that purport to agree with Jim’s position have been deleted, to.

    Nobody owes you an explanation for this. I’m just doing it because I had a ringside seat to it over the last few days.
