So in case you havenāt already heard, the last day of the Obama administration was supposed to be Friday. Well, according to the latest group of bat-****-crazy āpatriotsā anyway. Apparently a group of 10-30 Million militia members were set to take over Washington D.C. ready to stage a coup. They called the effort āOperation American Spring.ā
Now, interestingly enough, the leader of the movement, retired Army Colonel Harry Riley, actually told his followers that they should not show up in D.C. with their weapons and ammo. He literally gave them all āRules of Engagementā and listed at number one, No Guns, No Ammo. Instead, he told them all to show up with their bibles and constitutions. (Yes, Seriously.) Because when you really want to overthrow the United States government, you can really never underestimate the power of a menacing stink-eye combined with a bible thrust into the air. Duh.
Anyway, shockingly those 30 million patriots didnāt quite make it to the capitol Friday. I would say there were more like 30 of them. To tell you the truth, after looking at all of the pictures from the event, Iām trying to decide if Iām looking at a minuscule turnout in DC for the #OperationAmericanSpringā¦.or just a few old guys who work at Cracker Barrel out for their smoke break.
But even though American Spring was a total bust, something awesome still managed to come out of it. By Friday night, the Liberals had taken to Twitter and made the hashtag āAmerican Spring Excusesā trend, with some hilarious mocking of the flopped coup attempt.
