Compere: Well, Mr Walters, what’s it like being invisible?
Walters: [slowly and boringly] Well, for a start, at the office where I work I can be sitting at my desk all day and the others totally ignore me. At home, even though we are in the same room, my wife does not speak to me for hours, people pass me by in the street without a glance in my direction, and I can walk into a room without…
Compere: Well, whilst we’ve got interesting people, we met Mr Oliver Cavendish who…
Walters: [droning on] … Even now you yourself, you do hardly notice me…

It was a small protest but one of 180 planned protests against planned parenthood that as Breitbart noted became 320 protests all over the nation such as louisville.
Alejandro Capote spoke at the Louisville, Kentucky, protest, where he estimates at least 500 people participated.
“I spoke about the importance of defunding Planned Parenthood,” Capote tells Breitbart News. “It’s important that women have health care that does not fund abortion.”

Theresa King, who organized the Falls Church, Virginia, #ProtestPP rally told Breitbart News she decided to be an organizer after viewing the Center for Medical Progress videos.
“I saw the Planned Parenthood videos and felt the need to act,” she said. “As a kid, I would pray outside of abortion clinics, and my mom always said that we were giving the babies the only funeral they would ever have, so I felt the need to stand for the babies in the video, but for all the babies that have died in abortion.”

And as Twitchy and Steven Miller noted these took place without violence:
How were thousands of people able to protest Planned Parenthood without torching businesses or getting arrested? Doesn’t make sense.

This fact is a huge problem for the MSM which has taken the side of planned parenthood in the current debate and the knowledge that this many protests took place without incident would be an awkward story for them.
However despite the photographic evidence I’ve just displayed the media’s problem was solved by the people in question apparently being totally invisible:
Number of Planned Parenthood protests across the country this weekend: 320. Number of mentions in the media: close to zero.

Not even a word on the net from any of them. CNN did slightly better online here is the full text of their only story: (emphasis mine)
CNN PRODUCER NOTE Opponents took to the streets in a nationwide protest against Planned Parenthood on Saturday. Jennifer James was driving past a Planned Parenthood in Oklahoma City when she saw hundreds of people protesting Saturday morning. ““It was a very quiet protest,” James said. “As I walked up and down it with my camera, you could have heard a pin drop. It was unusual given how contentions of an issue it is.”
– zdan, CNN iReport producer
A few hundred people gather outside Planned Parenthood in Oklahoma City to protest abortion and government funding for the organization. Among the protesters were students from the Newman Center, a Catholic student organization at the University of Central Oklahoma.
I’m a single blogger with a cheap camera and the MSM is a multi billion dollar industry, how is it that I could produce this interview
and they could not?
The only way I can keep doing this full time is if my pay comes from you. My annual goal is Twenty Two grand which will give me a nominal living doing this.
For a Donald Trump the 22K that would cover my expenses for the and the extra $10K that would pay for the roof, car, floor kitchen and bathroom repairs that I had to put on plastic would be nothing and if my traffic was the size of a Drudge getting enough people to kick in to cover those bills would likely not be an issue.
But I have to take things as they are so if you like what you see here including my paid writers like Tim Imholt, Fausta Wertz, Pat Austin et/al and have a little extra you can spare. I’d appreciate it if you would hit DaTipJar
That gets all the bills paid. If I can get to Forty Thousand I can afford to travel outside of New England and/or hire more blogger to help me get it done.
