A tale of two crowds

A hat tip to Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit (see blogroll) and others who picked up on this very telling contrast of two events.

It was quite amazing to see the amount of trash left behind by the hundreds of thousands of people who crowded into Washington D.C.'s National Mall on January 20, 2009 to watch Barack Obama sworn in as president,

Even more amazing - yet, not surprising - is the lack of trash left behind by the hundreds of thousands of people who attended the Glenn Beck rally this last weekend.

Here is an overview shot of the crowd on the Mall on Inauguration Day, 2009:

After the festivities, here is what the crowd had wrought:

Now, here is an almost equally impressive crowd shot from the rally on Saturday:

And after the crowd left this party, take a look at the lack of a human footprint:

What was it that Obama said when he won the Democratic nomination? Something about his victory being the moment when the oceans would cease to rise and earth would begin to heal? Looks like the supposedly environmentally-friendly, earth-loving minions of our President didn't share his vision.

On the other hand, the supposedly evil, earth-despising, toxic pollution-loving conservatives who want to kill Bambi left behind a National Mall almost cleaner than they found it.

It's not just about love of the environment, it's about common decency towards our fellow man. Conservatives practice what we preach on an individual level, while statists like those who flocked to the Obama inauguration? They demonstrated that they depend on their fellow man to pick up the slack.

Just think of an issue as simple as welfare. Conservatives believe it is up to us as individuals to help the poor, just like it was up to individuals to clean up after themselves when Glenn Beck's rally had ended. Meanwhile, statists believe it is up to the government to take care of the poor, just like it was apparently up to the government to clean up all the trash left behind on the Mall when the inauguration was over.
