Remember when MoveOn.org mattered? Back when a word from the organization would inspire thousands to take to the streets. Looks like those days are gone forever. And in the words of the Simpson’s Nelson Muntz, “Ha-ha.”
The Daily Caller has the sad, sad details:
Democrat Eleanor Holmes Norton, the District of Columbia’s congressional delegate, failed to show up at a MoveOn.org rally on Tuesday afternoon as the left-wing organization attempted to stage a protest at the Social Security Administration headquarters in Washington, D.C. Organizers at the event, who would not provide their names to The Daily Caller upon request, said Holmes Norton was stuck speaking on the House floor. Holmes Norton does not have a vote in the House, only an opportunity to make recommendations.
Holmes Norton wasn’t the only person missing at MoveOn.org’s DC rally. The crowds of people MoveOn.org claims to have as followers didn’t make it out either. Maybe 30 people showed up – and that’s a generous estimate.
The event was part of MoveOn.org’s attempt to “Reclaim the American Dream,” or stop Republicans from balancing the budget. “Republicans in Congress are holding the middle class hostage – proposing a federal budget that would would [sic] cut 700,000 to 1 million jobs from our communities and slash funding to support preschool and college students, pregnant women, unemployed workers, and much more,” the leftwing organization funded by billionaire George Soros says on its website.
MoveOn.org used to fill the streets. Now they’d have trouble filling a phone booth. If they could find a phone booth, that is.
