Louisville Kentucky Take A Stand participants march to Mitch McConnell’s house

Got goose bumps reading the live blogging post from DitchMitchKY when I got to these updates:

UPDATE #5:

Aniello Alito, who has been absolutely tireless in his efforts, and he is closing now, leading the group to Mitch McConnell’s house.

Apparently, HE IS HOME!!

I’ll have more when I can.

UPDATE #6:

Oh. My. God.

There was an absolute army, an seemingly endless stretch of people marching from Frazier Hall to Mitch McConnell’s home. Simply mind blowing.

Mitch had corralled about 20 bikers to stand in front of his house and intimidate us, but they pissed their pants when they saw 300 chanting, sign carrying protesters.

This was one of the most amazing scenes I’ve ever witnessed. Just 15 yards from Mitch’s house 300 people “screaming support the troops end the war”, “Hey Mitch, come out and face the people”. I can’t really put it into words so I’ll just post all of the pictures.

This is why I love live blogging. Very, very cool.

Mitch McConnell wouldn’t come to Take A Stand, so they brought Take A Stand to Mitch McConnell.
