I just got back and I have to tie up some loose ends and make dinner and stuff.
Some quick thoughts:
- The rally was very poorly attended. There was some news media there, and there appeared to be a documentary film crew. I’d say the attendance was below 200.
- I get their cause. I really do. But when you act stupid, you need to be treated as such. When a guy on stage says, “They can’t even make just ONE flu vaccine. They have to keep updating it every year. Can’t THEY make ONE flu vaccine? Seems kinda dumb right?” When you don’t get the basic science of evolution, you should probably go ahead and hang up your cause. There were Ls painted on everyone’s foreheads in attendance, because they were all charismatically screaming out, “Yeah, brother! Say it loud! That’s right!”
Part of me wanted to be empathetic to their cause, especially when mothers cry for their babies, but nonsense is nonsense.
I’ll post more later with photos and video.
