Illinois gun owners held a VERY successful Illinois Gun Owners Lobby Day on March 6th this year, with about 8100 people participating – and that’s with a colossal snowstorm in the northern half of the state the night before the rally.
Well, the Soros-funded advocates for unilateral disarmament saw our success these last few years and they wanted to give it their best shot at holding their own rally – the ILEAD rally.
ILEAD you ask? Yep. Lead: it’s the opposite of gold.
ILEAD – The Illinois Leftists and Elitists Advocating Disarmament rally. It kicked off at noon yesterday, Thursday, April 11th.
The roughly 120-130 ILEAD participants stood out in the cold for a while before heading indoors. Note the dearth of American flags and/or other patriotic symbols, but what do you expect from people demonstrating against civil rights? George Wallace wasn’t waving an American flag when he blocked African-American students from entering the University of Alabama either.
How impressive was it inside the Capitol building with the handful of I-LEAD participants wandering around?
It was a little underwhelming, to say the least.
Here’s a shot of their information display inside the Capitol building:
Well, there you go. A utterly underwhelming group bused down from Chicago on two buses to advocate for surrendering our Constitutional rights and recreate past tyrannies.
We’re sure they are nice people, in most cases, but frankly, they are what we could call “useful idiots”.
Hopefully not many of them missed the return bus ride home.
Don’t laugh. That happened a few years ago when a couple of members of the rent-a-mob missed their ride home and all the sudden, promises of free T-shirts, pizza and $20 wasn’t such a great deal – even for a low-information voter!
