We still don’t know exactly how many people participated nationally in the #HandsUpWalkout protests on Monday. Although it’s clear that a very large number of people participated in dozens of cities across the country, we may never have completely reliable number estimates.
But if you are a good conservative, you know that these protests don’t represent the “will of the American people”. Far from it: these protests represent slackers and good-for-nothing sheeple who have been brainwashed. We can see this response very clearly from Conservative Twitter:
#HandsUpWalkout is proof that parents, the public education system, and institutions of “higher learning” have failed the American public

The pics I’m seeing from the #HandsUpWalkout indicate a real natl epidemic, where students and professors are unable to comprehend facts.

You see? Even if there were a million billion of these protesters, we know that their voices don’t represent the “will of the people”. How do we know? Because we are conservatives. And conservatives just know.
You can see the same thing with a number of different issues. For example, the Tax Day Tea Party protests in 2009 gathered an estimated 311,460 attendees. That was clearly the will of the people making itself heard. The People’s Climate March in New York City this year, on the other hand, was estimated at 311,000 participants… but those were just deluded misguided hippies who were brainwashed by communists.
This is also why real conservatives don’t get very bothered when elections don’t go their way. You see, conservatives just know whether the right people voted or not. 69.4 million people voted for Obama in 2008? Well, some of them were racist, others were brainwashed, others were just stupid college kids (what do they know?)… but that 69.4 million was clearly not the will of the people.
On the other hand, 22.5 million voted for Republicans in the 2014 midterm elections… now that obviously represents a mandate. That’s the Voice of the American People, loud and clear! How can anybody deny it?
The same goes for polling numbers. 70% of the population supports Voter ID laws, which makes about 223 million people in the grand total. How wise! How sensible! Anyone who opposes it is clearly not listening to the wishes of AMERICA!
On the other hand, the 91% of the population who supports increased background checks for buying guns…. well, that’s just stupid. Those people are stupid. Don’t listen to them.
The difference is very clear, and very obvious… when you’re a conservative!
