After-Action: DC Chapter FReeps Left for Exploiting War Dead and Wounded
March 15, 2004 on FR | BillF

Posted on 03/15/2004 9:22:18 AM PST by BillF

Leftists participated in a ghoulish attempt to exploit war dead and wounded for propaganda as noted in this thread: Dover to D.C. Memorial Procession [Left Blood Dance DoverAFB to Walter Reed Hospital, W House].

The Doctor of FReep conducted a spectacular one man FReep of the leftists outside Dover Air Force Base yesterday as noted in this thread: Code Pinko Medea Benjamin Flees When Confronted by Doctor Raoul at Dover AFB.

Today, the left hit a low point. Demonstrating outside Walter Reed Army Hospital, where many of our most seriously wounded Iraqi troops are, the leftists numbered about a hundred people. Religious leftists, pacifists, and a few misguided members of military families were interpersed with a couple dozen more hard core revolutionary types.

The media was out in full force with dozens of cameras and recorders for radio reporters. Instead of just getting the leftist view, 3 DC Chapter FReepers were out to offer a dissenting opinion.

The honor roll for this gathering of eagles: Kristinn, tgslTakoma, and BillF.

All of us were interviewed. Various verbal matches between us and the leftists were taped by TV and radio reporters. AP, CBS, NBC, Czech TV, local Fox 5 news, and local radio stations WTOP and WMAL were among those interviewing us. Watch your media for reports.

The CBS radio report had a story about the demontration highlighting a father and mother complaining about their son being sent to Iraq. It simply noted that a "handful of pro-war demonstrations" were at the edge of the rally.

Kristinn was his usual calm self when being interviewed. I voiced my great anger and disgust at the leftists demonstrating at a hospital with war wounded. Hope I didn't rant too harshly.

tgslT gave numerous interviews, but had an incident (nothing too serious) with a leftist. I'll let her describe it, but add my comments after hers.

The point that we kept emphasizing was that the anti-war groups are cynically using war dead and wounded to advance their propaganda.

Leftists are reassembling at White House in a couple hours. Some are walking the 6 miles to the White House in a "funeral march".

The FReep will be continued at the White House. More will be added later.

I hope the press puts this Socialist Blood Lust on TV. I think it might change minds.

I heard a brief blurb on the radio that "anti-war protestors in Washington were countered by pro-war supporters"...or something to that effect.

The brief report did mention there were pro-war people and didn't give more credence to the unwashed ANSWER types either.

Good job DC chapter
