I don’t know who Sophia Elena is, but I sense someone who has a career as an honest journalist if such a thing is even possible.

I discovered her work because she covered the ‘other’ March on Washington, the one orchestrated by Organizing for America, the Obama astroturf organization, which took place on 9/13 the day after the 9/12 March on Washington.  Naturally I assumed she was one of ‘them’.  I was wrong.

I assumed the video presentation techniques she used, such as speeding up the moonbats’ march around a circular fountain was designed to make their meager numbers seem more impressive.  I originally wrote:

They speed up the video of the group walking around the cricular fountain in a futile attempt to make it seem more impressive!  The same people appear three or four times!  Epic Fail!

I no longer think that.  I do think that the speeded up film served to make it even more obvious that it was the same group of people circling round and round the fountain endlessly.  It parodied their efforts in comparison to the 9/12 march in which the same device was used to compress an hour and a half of video into the ten minute envelope that YouTube requires.  Listen to her commentary.

Here are the two videos, Moonbats first.

The Organizing for America march is simply pathetic.  It would have been better if they just canceled it.  We had originally intended to counter protest it, but in retrospect, we would have so badly outnumbered them that it would have appeared like we were bullying them.  Better to have this video to laugh at and compare their astroturf to our own efforts.

Now here is the 9/12 March on Pennsylvania Ave from a perspective very similar to my own film.

Here you can see the massive numbers of people marching down Pennsylvania Avenue.  No repeats.  No recycled people.  All grassroots.  And this is only half the march!  The commentator even echoes my own remark that she had never seen so many people in one place.

So, Sophia Elena, whoever you are, I salute the great service you did for the cause of free journalism.
