Casa Del Sol, a squatters building in Mott Haven, will house many protestors during the Republican National Convention.

Wanted: Sleeping Space for Protesters. Hot Water Optional.

Translation: allow strangers into your home -- and don't worry, we don't bathe.

Note to psychos: dumb people in NYC are letting strangers stay in their apartments with almost no questions asked. Do something witchy.

BTW, NYCGOPC, what's the answer to your tagline?

Oh...where to start?!!!?!??

This ones a keeper: ...."Another says that the apartment can accommodate six people, or perhaps more if the guests are "creative sleepers."....

And I this one gets a giggle:.."This Is Our Community. Clean Up After Your Dog. Prevent Fascism..."

But I have to say...this one says it all: "The least comprehended people in a society are the most beautiful."

yes, I know what everyone is thinking and I am sure I would agree.

But look at the flipside - give the left credit for being willing and organized well enough to do something like this. our side could never pull something like this off, I can't think of a single issue where they right would take to the streets with such an organized movement - and provide the support structure to make it happen.

and yes, we will look at these protestors with revulsion - but there are plenty of stupid sheeple out there who will not.

Imagine the fun NY Conservatives could have if -- one by one -- all managed to get accommodations where the Leftists are staying and then set up to make enough noise and/or enough stink during the night so that the Leftists/Greenies/Commies/Appeaseniks don't get any sleep.

Talk about counter-protest...

That's because many of us on the Right have several things with which to concern ourselves; things that these Leftists consider alien. Namely, a job, a family, children, a mortgage, et cetera...

Though her accommodations are modest, Ms. Eidson expects seven houseguests in her two-bedroom apartment during the Republican National Convention. Aside from those traveling with their partners, the guests have never met. Yet they share common ground in their intention to protest in the streets and their willingness to depend on the kindness of strangers.

Oh man oh man, I wish they were airing this apartment 24 hours round the clock for the week!

They are so absolutely going to despise each other by day two! I would pay to watch the Canadians try to broker an uneasy peace between the two lesbians and the biker activist girl.

“Can we all calm down, eh?”
“If I have to hear one more goddamned Indigo Girls song I’m going to tear their heads off!”
“You filthy f*#king breeder! How dare you insult the Indigo Girls!”
“Perhaps we could have a little quite time, eh?”
“Back off Frenchie, or I’ll wrap your nutsack around your neck!”
"Get that f#*king camera out of my f*#king face!"

These protesters are nothing but hate-America filth and should be deported since they hate the country do much. On Hannity's show the other day some protester was encouraging violence.

Father Kooperkamp has persuaded about three dozen religious institutions to open basements, sanctuaries, gymnasiums and parish halls, enough room for about 500 protesters in all. Though he shares the protesters' politics and intends to demonstrate against the convention, he speaks of other motivations.

RICO!!!

"Those seeking a somewhat more comfortable stay can go across the river to Harlem, where the Rev. Earl Kooperkamp expects to house 30 to 50 protesters at St. Mary's Episcopal Church, near the 26th Precinct station house. His guests can choose between the wooden pews or the cool tile floor downstairs."

I'm sure if political affiliations were reversed the ACLU / PU / et al. wouldn't say a word about the church losing its tax exempt status. </ sarc>

After sorting through dozens of responses, Ms. Aronowitz said, she settled on three young men from Florida who "just sounded honest."

So did Ted Bundy.

to be honest with you - we want them to turn violent. it will get more media attention (negative), will permit a stronger police response, and will go further to show the sheeple across the country what the Democratic party really is made up of at the core.

I was seriously considering the moral issues around trolling their sites and inviting them to stay in either fictituous addresses or people I know wouldn't have them, or public buildings like a firehouse or office building. Leave them stranded in NYC with no place to stay, and likely very little money to get a place.

Those seeking a somewhat more comfortable stay can go across the river to Harlem, where the Rev. Earl Kooperkamp expects to house 30 to 50 protesters at St. Mary's Episcopal Church, near the 26th Precinct station house. His guests can choose between the wooden pews or the cool tile floor downstairs. The basement is air-conditioned, but it is used as an outreach center, so protesters will have to be up and out the door by 6 a.m.

Father Kooperkamp has persuaded about three dozen religious institutions to open basements, sanctuaries, gymnasiums and parish halls, enough room for about 500 protesters in all.

Housing political partisans certainly seems like a direct violation of IRS rules. That should eliminate their tax free status. What was that organization that always attacks Christian Churchs that support Bush and claims to be non-partisan?

I can see the headlines now...

Day After GOP Convention Sees Thousands Of Complaints Of Vandalism

Eventually the story will clarify that the protesters were the source of the vandalism, and the complaints were filed by their hosts who found themselves missing money and valuables.

Another says that the apartment can accommodate six people, or perhaps more if the guests are "creative sleepers."

Considering the freaks that are involved in the protest culture, I don't think creativity will be a problem.

Y'know, this is New York City. Once somebody has moved in, it is nearly impossible to evict them. It would be absolutely FReepin' hilarious to have these cotton-headed leafties be afflicted with hippie infestations for the next five years while the eviction processes work through the courts.

"The practice of hospitality both makes us more human and makes the world a more humane place," Father Kooperkamp said. "As long as they're standing firm against war, working for peace, that's what the church is supposed to be about. We pray every day to a guy called the Prince of Peace."

Oh Father Kooperkamp!

The vast majority of these protestors support abortion on demand in all it shapes and forms.

The vast majority of these protestors support homosexual marriage.

The vast majority of these protestors want to deny using the word of GOD anywhere in public.

The vast majority of these protestors hate the teaching of the church.

The vast majority of these protestors hate America and think that we are worse than the terrorists.

Father Kooperkamp you are an imbecile.
