The National Organization for Marriage's much-touted March for Marriage descended on Washington, D.C., today, supposedly featuring thousands of Americans who support what the group calls "traditional marriage," between one man and one woman.
But despite a full-court press from NOM and its antigay allies encouraging Americans to stand up against the so-called gay agenda, it appears the actual turnout at the march is less than massive. Nevertheless, the organization is live-streaming today's event, which can be watched live here.
LGBT activists are already hijacking NOM's Twitter hashtag #March4Marriage, and even the Human Rights Campaign joined in to openly mock the meager attendance at the supposed morality rally:

Here are some of our favorite responses to HRC's tweet showing the scope of the "crowd," along with some of the snarkiest pro-LGBT comments on the highjacked #March4Marriage hashtag:
@HRC About the same as those who showed up to overthrow Obama last time.

@HRC I hope the tens of people who showed up enjoy all that D.C. has to offer.

@HRC How many of these folks just wanted a free bus ride to DC? This is so laughable it is hard to take them serious.

@HRC can't wait to see the photoshop version

#March4Marriage is what a pro-segregation rally must have seemed like in 1965
