Kiener Plaza Holds 3,000. Tea Party Doesn't Come Close To Filling It But Claims 4,000 Anyway

Kiener Plaza has a maximum capacity of 3,000 according to it's website (h/t Fired Up! Missouri for pointing this out earlier). As you can see from this picture, today's tea party did not even come close to filling it:

But of course, that won't stop Gateway Pundit from claiming that they had 4,000 people.

Since they claimed to have 10,000 people at their April rally, at least we can all agree that today was a giant #FAIL.


  1. I thought 4000 was a police estimate.

  2. Haha, yeah, an "anonymous police estimate." Actually, this time it was an "anonymous park ranger estimate." Funny how they always claim that.

    But of course, if Kiener Plaza only holds 3,000, it only holds 3,000.

  3. The Kiener web site also says "the amphitheater seats 500". That means there would have to be a completely full seating area and 3,500 people standing around the stage and fountain. Wow! That is some over-zealous "estimating"!

  4. This is a baby version of their million at the mall claim in, when was it?, September?

  5. Anon 2:52, the 3,000 number includes the may amphitheater, so it's even worse than you suggest!
