Now Republicans in congress want to enter inflated figures regarding the tea parties participation into the official record.
Right-wing distortion media lied about the numbers by more than a factor of 10.
The official estimates were under 70,000 people.
76 House Republicans introduced a resolution to commemorate the right-wing nuttery of the 9/12 protests.
In this resolution they repeat false claims that “hundreds of thousands” marched on washington, and that estimates ranged as high as 1.7 million.
These “estimates” were created by Malkin and repeated by Dick Armey and the Fox network.
It is a fascinating study of the Right vs Reality.
