We oppose all partisan AND bipartisan trash

Several people have felt compelled to mail us and say that if we didn’t comment about the One Nation rally then clearly we were LUBRUL MEDIA JURKS because we posted a guest piece about junking up the mall before the Glenn Beck rally.

So here you go:

We Love DC opposes people coming onto the Mall or anywhere else in the city – whether they be from far away or local organizations – and making a big honking mess.

We do not care if you are

  • Democrat
  • Republican
  • Libertarian
  • Pro-war
  • Anti-war
  • Christian
  • Buddhist
  • Pastafarian
  • Tall
  • Short
  • Black
  • White
  • Two-headed purple martian

We want you to not leave your crap all over the Mall. Take home the junk what you brung.

This includes the smart-assed and sarcastic who will be here on Oct 30 for the Stewart/Colbert thing.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.

  1. A a point of reference, I was on the mall early morning after both the Tea Party (Beck) rally and the One Nation rally this past weekend. There was no comparison, the One Nation rally had more garbage on the ground from the Washington Monument to the Lincoln Memorial than I have ever seen. I’ve never seen the mall more trashed. On the other hand, I’ve never seen a large group leave the mall more clean than after the Tea Party rally. I’m not sure what this says about the two groups but I think it says something.

  2. Whoa now, I plan to attend the Stewart/Colbert ‘thing,’ and I think it’s much more than a bunch of sarcastic and smart-ass folk. I think there are a good deal of people that aren’t motivated by the hyperpartisanship we see, and would also not mind a free bit of comedy.

    I personally can neither stand the Tea Party movement nor could I stomach Rock the Vote. Although I have political opinions, they are so clouded with preconceived notions that they cannot reasonably formulate arguments. It makes me sad that either side can sway so many idiots.

    I’ll pick up my own trash though.

  3. I think I’ll speak for most people of DC: wait, there was another march/rally on the Mall this weekend? They really are starting to blend together into one giant hole which is sucking the life out of me.

    Considering how much noise was made for the Tea Party get-together (both by T-people and everyone else), and how little was made for this One Nation whatever, it should be understandable that less was made of Onewhatever on all of the local blogs. Back off people; stop projecting political prejudices on what are effectively volunteer operations. We Love DC provides excellent stuff at no cost to you; be happy they do it.

    That’s 2 cents from someone sitting in the middle, neither left nor right.

  4. Well, there’s obvious point here: Glenn Beck told people not to bring signs, and, lo and behold, there were no signs at Beck-a-palooza. And discarded signs make up most of the garbage at protest rallies. There were tons of discarded signs all over Capitol Hill at the 9/12 thing last year.
