Kerry National Headquarters Sics Cops on Freepers, Kristinn to Be On Fox News - On Now
D.C. Chapter of FR ^ | 4/17/04 | L_von_Mises

Posted on 04/17/2004 12:03:06 PM PDT by L_Von_Mises

The DC Chapter of Free Republic set up a Viet-Cong Vets for Kerry bake sale in front of Democrat Presidential candidate John Kerry's national headquarters in Washington DC this afternoon. The Kerry campaign responded by calling the D.C. police to shut down the bake sale.

When the D.C. police arrived they ordered the DC Chapter to shut down the protest in 15 minutes or they would ticket them for occupying a public space without a permit. At that point the police would then disperse them themselves.

Due to the short notice, and the fact that it would be a small group, the DC Chapter did not apply for a permit.

Kristinn is scheduled to appear on Fox News this afternoon for an in-studio interview. The interview should air sometime between 3:00 pm and 6:00 pm today. As more details become available, they will posted here.

Kudos to those that attended. The honor roll is Kristinn, Angelwood, TGSLTakoma, TBP, Trueblackman, and Staytrue.

Here is the link to the original announcement about the bake sale

I would imagine at a Kerry Bake Sale everything would be a little doughy, you know, half baked.

If Kerry and the RATS had been smart, they'd have come out and bought some cookies and engaged in lighthearted banter. But no, Botoxboy doesn't mingle with the 'little people', unless he absolutely has to. What a maroon.

By shutting down the bake sale, the Kerry folks seem to have given more publicity to this bake sale than it ever would have had near Kerry campaign headquarters! I hope Fox News gives the menu. That was great.

D.C. Chapter to Hold 'Viet Cong Vets for Kerry' Bake Sale this Saturday, 4/17/04
D.C. Chapter ^ | Thursday, April 15, 2004 | Kristinn
Posted on 04/15/2004 5:23:17 PM PDT by kristinn

The D.C. Chapter of Free Republic invites all FReepers and lurkers in good standing to join us this Saturday for our Viet Cong Vets for Kerry bake sale outside Democrat presidential candidate John Kerry's national campaign headquarters.

As a spoof of MoveOnPac's nationwide Kerry bake sales being held on Saturday to 'prove John Kerry is a man of the people,' the D.C. Chapter will be holding our own bake sale to inform the public about Kerry's betrayal of his fellow American servicemen during the Vietnam War.

Items being offered at the Viet Cong Vets for Kerry bake sale will include:

Three Scratches and You're Out Purple Heart Cookies,
Hanoi Hilton Misfortune Cookies,
Jane Fonda Nut Cakes,
Punji Bread Sticks,
Ho Ho Ho Chi Mints, and
Vichyssois.

Free Range Waffles and Kerry Flips Flops will also be offered.

Yes, I had read that, but I understand it's only necessary to get a permit if a large group is expected, and the D.C. group has always done that.

As a spoof of MoveOnPac's nationwide Kerry bake sales being held on Saturday to 'prove John Kerry is a man of the people...
From http://action.moveonpac.org/bakesale/:
On Sat., April 17, all across the country, thousands of people will organize bake sales to raise money for MoveOn PAC's campaign to Take Back the White House. While George Bush raises money mostly from wealthy donors, we will demonstrate the broad-based grassroots support supporting MoveOn PAC and John Kerry.

Whether you can organize an event, bake something, or help out selling things, we can use your help. If you create a new bake sale, others may sign up to help. If there is already a bake sale in your neighborhood, you can sign up to help with it, or hold your own.
Click here to schedule a new event.

Sell 100 cookies, brownies, or pieces of pie--you're a Pioneer!
If you top 200 items sold, you're a Ranger.

And all you have to do is find a place to hold it and some friends to help you bake things.
See--it's a piece of cake!

I just spoke to Kristinn and Fox has decided that they would not be conducting the interview because they will be focusing on recent developments is Israel. I hope that some other news service picks up the DC Chapter/Kerry HQ story. Let a few more people know what a man of the people Kerry is.

Kristinn also mentioned that despite the NVA flag and the large sign that said "Viet Cong Vets for Kerry", the people at Kerry's HQ really thought they were there to support Kerry. In fact one woman even tried to donate $20. That says a whole lot about the kind of people running Kerry's campaign. Not only are they about as sharp as a wet sponge, but they would be willing to take support from the Viet Cong. When they finally figured out that the joke was on them, I guess that is when they decided to call the cops.

Play this up: require a trial, conviction, press coverage, full circus. The face time in the press is invaluable, and a first offense will elicit a slap on the wrist at most.

They were not actually selling any baked goods so they did not need a vendor's permit but, he said that the issue was the tables. Apparently, if they were just standing there with signs it probably would have been OK, but having the tables there gives it a sense of permanence. Not quite a structure, but....

I am sure Kristinn will be able to provide more info when he gets to a keyboard.

You could not write a more true statement here on FR. The Dems have no sense of humor and have little tolerance opposing viewpoints.

What the Kerry People did to the Freepers in DC is a disgrace. What ticks me off the most is if that DU'ers were to set up a "DWI Offenders for Bush" or "Friends of Ken Lay for Bush" in front of the Bush-Cheney '04 HQ the campaign staffers would not say a thing and allow them to have their Right to Free Speech right in Front of the campaign office.

It should be fairly easy to verify if the DC Chapter's bake sale was subjected to "selective enforcement" of the laws reguarding permits for bake sales in that area.

First, get the ZIP code for Kerry HQ, from http://www.johnkerry.com/contact/:



John Kerry for President, Inc.
901 15th Street, NW, Suite 700
Washington, DC 20005
202-712-3000
202-712-3001 (fax)
Next, input that ZIP code at the MoveOnPac bake sale locator to find OTHER local bake sales:

  Judith Miller (9 baker(s)/helper(s))
3620 Macomb St., NW
Washington, DC
Bring baked goods (brownies?). Be entertained by a bluegrass band. Just B's, but no Bushes.
DIRECTIONS: I live at 3620 Macomb St., NW. It's the ONLY house on the corner of Wisconsin and Macomb (which is on the grid: 2 syllable "m"). The best way to figure out how to get there is by using the Rideguide on the wmata site. (www.wmata.com) Alternatively, you can follow these directions... Take the red line to Cleveland Park. Walk out of the station at the west exit. It will leave you off at Connecticut and Ordway. Walk south along CT for two blocks (maybe 3?) until you get to Macomb St. Take a right (west) on Macomb and follow it until you get to Wisconsin. I'm the only house on the corner. The walk is about 15 minutes total from the Cleveland Park station. It's the longest walking-time, but the easiest if you're not used to DC busses. bus routes: N2/N4/N6: These routes (which leave from Dupont and, I believe, downtown) drop you off at the corner of Massachusetts and Wisconsin. Walk north on Wisconsin about 4 blocks until you hit Macomb St., where I live on the corner. About 10 minute bus ride from dupont, 5 minute walk from the bus stop. H4: Take this from Mt. Pleasant/Columbia Hts to the corner of Wisconsin and Porter. Walk south along Wisconsin 4 blocks until Macomb St., where I live. The other H busses also take you in the area of where I live, but it's a longer walk from where they drop you to my house. 90: Take this from Adams Morgan (and other areas?). It will drop you off on the corner of Wisconsin and Macomb, literally in front of my house. 32/34/35: I don't know exactly how far these go , but they definitely go into Georgetown and the capitol area. You can catch take them all the way up Wisconsin to its intersection with Macomb St. Then get off the bus and you'll be, again quite literally, in front of my house.

18th and Columbia Rd NW
Washington, DC
Join us in our fight to bring renewed freedom to the United States by ending Dubya's evil regime! Through the power of democracy, activism, and pastries, we'll take back the country and our right to enjoy carbohydrates (suck it, Dr. Atkins!).
We'll be meeting at the SW corner of 18th & Columbia in the heart of Adams Morgan. If all goes well, we'll set up camp outside a popular local coffee shop, otherwise we'll make do in another nearby public space. If using the metro, take the red-line to Woodley Park/Zoo/Adams Morgan and walk across the Ellington Bridge or the green-line to Columbia Hights and walk one block S to Columbia Rd and W four block to 18th St.

Finally, it should not be difficult to visit some (or ALL) of these D.C. area bake sales, and ask to see THEIR permits.
