Protest commando takes active stance (Dr. Raoul in the news)
The Trentonian ^ | March 28, 2004 | Dave Sommers

PRO-BUSH WAR PROTESTER EXPOSES ANTI-WAR PEACENIKS

DAVE SOMMERS , Staff Writer 03/28/2004

When it comes to defending what he sees as President Bush’s correct stance in fighting the war on terror, Raoul Deming is about as proactive as one could be.

In fact, he has attended nearly every rally on the East Coast in the past year, whether pro or con, and says he’s always ready to confront those who speak out against the president or scoff at any displays of patriotism.

Just last weekend, Deming attended an anti-war rally in Fayetteville, N.C., where he argued with protesters and then presented his own opposing view to newspaper and television reporters.

The original headline in the newspaper is a little misleading.

Great interview.Thank you for getting the word out.

All it takes is a bit of search on the internet and those families could find out what the sponsoring groups are really about.

I agree. It should read: The King of One-Liners Gets Under Their Skin

Bravo! Doctor.

Well done, doc!

All it takes is a bit of search on the internet and those families could find out what the sponsoring groups are really about.

Though it's pretty bad when your above-average citizen, namely Doc, knows more than the journos who report on this stuff. Why did Doc have to inform the reporter about ANSWER, for example? That's the journo's day job.

Thanks for posting this very revealing article.

I'm thinking that the misleading headline might trap some anti-war types into reading the article, which would annoy them. :-)

And "great work," Dr. Raoul.

"...That's the journo's day job..."

I've noticed that other than National Review and Horowitz's Frontpagemag that publish articles giving background information on these anti-war groups, their leadership, their funding and their larger umbrella groups, etc. the US media gives NO BACKGROUND AT ALL.

They've had over a year now to absorb this investigative journalism provided to them by these sources.....or at least to double check the truthfulness of these reports themselves. Instead they leave the impression in the public mind that all of this protesting is either, at the very least, a spontaneous expression of people's feelings or, at most, organized by your average citizen.

I've called my local papers and some of the local TV stations to talk to them about this. I've known more than everyone I've talked to. And it ain't my day job, either. Thank heaven for the internet. The lamestream will never be the same again.

An obvious puff piece.

At least the reporter went to c.A.N.S.W.E.R.'S web site. Didn't do much looking around though.

The Trentonian is a good newspaper, for such a small staff.

Too bad they don't have their editorials online.

Kudos Doc. You may be doing more for the cause than all the rest of us put together. You have the talent for getting in the news and that's what it takes. We have to find ways to be "the news". The media is not going to give us air time unless we push the evelope. I still think that the D.C. Chapter should file a lawsuit against the Federal Security Force for denying their First Amendment rights.

Thanks for finding and posting this article. AFAIK, this is the second profile of pro war on terror citizen activists published in the media since the war started on 9-11.

The silence of the media in this regard is shameful, but what we've come to expect. Kudos to The Trentonian for publishing this story.

"These (protesters) claim to support the troops, but what they do is ruin the morale of our military people serving overseas," he said.

That is exactly right, and it pisses me off a lot when they do that.

Great story about you, Raoul; and about your good works.

We'll be needing to beef up security around your Takoma Park compound once word of this story gets to Brian Becker, Suzie "Medea" Benjamin and Mara VerHeyden-Hilliard.

Great work!

Newspapers tend to subconsciously, or consciously as the case may be, ignore good upbeat stories where right thinking people stand up for what is wholesome for this country.

For some inexplicable reason, most people who choose to become reporters (and eventually editors) are those with a malcontent type personality in the first place.

They are out to change the world in their own image of what should be, and along the way they settle some scores with invisible demons of their past.

If only more mainstream, all-American types would become reporters I think newspapers would be much different.

As it is now, if a newspaper has one or two even moderately conservative reporters, that is a lot.

Most media outlets make their mark in the world by doing stories that highlight victimology or wronged individuals.

People like Raoul have to find an angle which a newspaper can use in their story.

I can't expect a reporter to just write my point of view about something just because I think (or know) it's correct.

There has to be some type of hook to attract the writer or reader.

"Whether they know it or not, they are standing with organizations who want to see this country collapse." scary .. the thought, in this day and age, with the technology and educational resources available, too many folks still don't get it. Thanks for posting this. Dr. Raoul,, Thanks for saying it! Dead on the nail, imo.

Well said Dr. Raoul! Its about time the press takes notice of people like you! Thank you for all you do.

More people have to confront these anti-Iraq war types or I'm afraid the media will see Raoul as a lone wolf, so to speak.
