They use million man math!
Check it out:
Thousands of activists for immigration reform have gone missing after only four hundred turned up at Wednesday’s rally in Bakersfield, CA outside the office of Republican Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy. Though the SEIU reported that “more than 5,000 people” had boarded buses to the rally, only a few hundred actually emerged in Bakersfield–potentially one of the greatest human tragedies in American history.
The Associated Press offered a figure of 1,500 attendees, citing estimates from Bakersfield police. Those estimates are clearly erroneous, based perhaps on expected rather than actual turnout. A local CBS affiliate reported from Los Angeles on the morning of the rally that “3,900 people” were going to the rally.
If so, thousands were lost on the way. Many vehicles are apparently missing, as well–the CBS affiliate reported that “the largest car and bus caravan in California” had left Dodger Stadium, though an organizer filmed by Breitbart News’ Lee Stranahan that morning only mentioned one truck and several other vehicles.
Yet journalists have largely failed to follow up on the missing demonstrators.
