No amount of spin ...
Then stop spinning. Organizers, a Seihk, not Pakistani (there goes that "mouse" in your pocket), organization, estimated attendance. You're spinning "swelling" without attribution. Expected "swelling" was 50k, so 12-15k is a poor showing.
Embarrassment is the lack of local reporting. Fox Houston had none on their site, it wasn't a Buffoon event, the other three broadcasters was almost none to none. Local independent press, none. IOW, almost no one here, Houston, gives a s**t. If you were here, any where close to Texas, you would know that. Instead you inflict your local, Pakistan, give a s**t on a locality, this forum, that doesn't.
There never was any intention for conflict.
Then why the s***show characterization? Spin? There wasn't an opportunity for much conflict. The protesters were directed to a lot across Kirby from the venue grounds.
Other than correcting your gleeful factual misrepresentations, I could not care less about this event.
