Attendance At Anti-War Protests Drops Off After Obama Elected

This doesn’t come as much surprise of course. We always knew the protesters were anti-Bush, and anti-capitalism rather than anti war. A study has just been released (PDF here) by a couple of college professors and they have found that-

After January 2007, the attendance at antiwar rallies [measured in] roughly the tens of thousands, or thousands, through the end of 2008.

After the election of Barack Obama as president, the order of magnitude of antiwar protests dropped […] Organizers were hard pressed to stage a rally with participation in the thousands, or even in the hundreds. For example, we counted exactly 107 participants at a Chicago rally on October 7, 2009.

  1. Which just goes to show, reading between the lines, that most so called “anti-war protesters” are probably not averse to resorting to violence if it suits their end goals and agenda.

    Not that this is anything new to most regular readers of this blog.
