¿Quien sabe?

Of all of what I’ve seen since the left decided that Americans speaking out was just too much for a sitting president and a large democratic majority to take this is the most amazing:

This clinic is adjacent to Denver’s day laborer pickup street, Park Avenue. Being fluent in Spanish, El Marco asked these guys “¿hablan ingles?” “casi nada” was the reply from our amigo on the left. I asked him if he could tell me what the signs said. “¿Quien sabe?” (who knows?) was all he said to me, with a big grin. I’m kicking myself for not asking them how much they were getting paid to support the grassroots.

Our democratic friends who accuse us (well I guess me since I attended a tea party earlier this year) of being paid by the insurance companies are providing this kind of “grassroots” support for the president. To quote the blog author:

This is the first time in my life that I can recall a government in North America organizing protests of one group of citizens against another. This is standard operating procedure in countries with left-wing governments.

You know in a media age when anyone can snap a photo or take a film and get it on the net you just can’t get away with this BS and keep it under the radar anymore. When that photo with the ¿Quien sabe? breaks nationally the game is going to be all over.

Update 2: The Spectator notes some issues but misses the why don’t they understand the signs they are carrying.

  2. […] the Speaker of the House first claimed protesters were carrying Swastikas. Not a word about the astroTurfing of the left or the SEIU beatings. David Gregory served up the desired clip and got the phony […]

  3. […] I submit that the last sign and the stuff you will see posted by Vodkapundit and Glenn (where 12,000 showed up in Illinois) are much more typical. And I’ll also bet that all the adults know what their signs say. […]

  4. […] videos, Van Jones, Tea Parties, “Racism”, Ken Gladney, Anita Dunn, Kevin Jennings, ¿Quien sabe? and Sarah Palin’s “Acknowledged Grandchild”, all ignored, misrepresented, delayed […]
