Posted on 03/19/2005 5:03:49 PM PST by Constitution Day
Today we met in Fayetteville, NC to Freep a motley rabble of socialists, anarchists, Code Pink-os, and other throwbacks to the 60's! As usual, we were well outnumbered by their hordes of college students, aging hippies and other bused-in protestors, but we held our own as always.
Please post any reports and observations on this thread only.
Can't wait to read the after-action reports!!!!!!!!!
Pictures will be available shortly...

I apologize if I missed anyone!
BillF compiled this list and I added some names of other Freepers that I met today.
I was most impressed with the wife of one of our soldiers who was there with her 5 month old son. Her husband is at war for our freedom.
She was a class act,a beautiful young lady who was very informed on why her husband was overseas.
What a dichotomy she was with those soul-less ,old lesbian hippies we saw in pink.
I had to leave around 3:15- did anyone figure out what the hub-bub was with the all police about that time?
It was very cool to meet so many great Freepers!
Everyone should go to a local freep when they get a chance!
I also have some photos from AQGeiger that I will upload & post.
Congratulations on a FReep well done! We held down the communists as well in Ventura, CA.
A couple of the "great unwashed" got in a fight amongst themselves.
sounds like you had a GREAT showing.
I am sorry to be laughing at that! Bunch of freaks. What are they protesting each other now?
Hated to miss it and looking forward to hearing/seeing what you all accomplished.
Thank you all, on behalf of my Marine husband and other friends serving.
It was SO much fun. I had never seen so many mangy-looking people together in one place. The local police had to stand in a line in front of our area because the leftists kept trying to come over to our side and cause trouble. We got a few laughs out of the police when we started chanting. They seemed to like "Swim to Cuba!" For some reason, the other really funny chant we had has temporarily escaped me.
Medea Benjamin herself came over to our area more than once to try to cause trouble. She was a little upset at our MOAB (Mother of All Banners). I'm sure Constitution Day will put the photo of that up.
I don't know. One didn't want to share his peace pipe with the other?
Didn't it have something to do with the "Brown Acid"?
I'll try to post some pictures tomorrow. I just bought my camera, and I'm still learning to use it.
So if it doesn't work on us they turn on each other! (Freaks) Am I bad for hoping they both got some good licks in before the police had to jump on them to diffuse the situation?
That was it! Doctor Raoul read out "public service announcements" over his megaphone warning the moonbats that the brown acid was "not very good."
Marking to read and see the counter.
Congrats to you all!!!!!!!
I'm so sorry we weren't able to make it down there today. I love being with FReepers at these type things.........then again, I just like being with FReepers in general!!!!
LOL! Is that vintage Woodstock?
And, as always, you guys and gals in the Old North State Chapter are fabulous hosts.
After I post a few photos, I'll pass the computer over to the Freepers in our "undisclosed location" here in Fayetteville.
Gael Murphy and Medea Benjamin had traveled down to Fayetteville for this "debutante ball" for Code Pink. But, oopsy! They didn't know we brought a MOAB with us!
Boyohboy were Gael and Medea pi$$ed-off when they saw the MOAB and heard our chants. Here's a couple of photos of Gael Murphy as Kristinn really lit into her (verbally) from across the street. I'll let Kristinn recount the story that goes with these photos. Suffice to say, Freepers won the media war with Code Pink(o).
Y'all missed a fantastic FReep. The commies had about the same number as they did last year. The vast majority of these were bussed in on four buses. Our turnout was larger than last year.
For me the highlight was when the Code Pink-o lezzies couldn't stand our MOAB anymore and had to come confront us directly. We shouted them down well. There were at least 5-7 LEOs surrounding the traitors as they tried to mock us. They failed. Then they went back across the street, down the hill into the park, climbed up on the stage and announced to their adoring, smelly crowd that our MOAB was a lie. LOL!
Is it just me, or does Gael Murphy bear a striking resemblance to Robert Redford?
Don't laugh. She NEEDS to be bumped!
Hmmm... good question, AQ.
Anybody ever seen GM & RR together? If you have, how did you cope with the stench?
All the Freepers were yelling, "Look at the mangy freak!" And I said, "Wait a minute! I'm with you guys!" Really hurt my feelings.
Tiggles (tgslTakoma) says "Yes. And we really kicked her in the balls today!"
We also had many wonderful folks from Rolling Thunder come out. Unfortunately, they weren't allowed to bring their motorcycles this year.
There were also a few people there independent of any group.
I read the other day that the RT folks weren't going to be allowed the use of their bikes - that bites. But I'm glad to hear some of them still came out in support of the good guys.
Bwha ha ah aha aha ha ahahahhhaha haha aha ....shooting beer out my nose.....you owe me a new keyboard!
The local 24 hr news channel (CH 14) is providing a pretty good report on our counter protest.
OUR thanks go to you and your Marine husband! Please know and let your husband know that you, both, have my deepest gratitude for your service to our great country. I pray for our military each and every day.
Sounds low to me. I block-estimated.
Hello to the Freepers from today. Yes. Gael Murphy does bear a resemblance to Robert Redford.
We did have fun. Dr. Raoul was wonderful with the comments and information that he gave us. I wish others could have heard him.
One thing that I noticed was that I only saw one American flag on the other side that was being carried. The other American flags were on the coffin like boxes that they had representing the war dead. The commie, leftie pinkos don't know what an affront that is to true military people. They don't get it and likely never will.
The infiltrators were fun to catch for the most part. I didn't see the one who was sitting and eating our cookies. I guess it had been a long time since he got to eat. LOL!!!
The infiltrator who was the most upsetting to us was the one who hit Bert. That was totally uncalled for and was not provoked. I don't know if he was arrested or just told to not show his face around that area again.
The lefties also had their fund raiser again this year. I think it was the same as last year's paint an umbrella thing. I don't think they added too much to their funds. It looked like the same number were there and painted at the end as were there at the beginning.
The cops were great! They got really tickled with Dr. Raoul's warnings about the "brown acid". I was told that I had a good set of lungs by the cops which made me laugh as I am a smoker. I can't wait until the next Freep as I can be awesome then, thanks to a gift from Dr. Raoul. It was noted again this year that the cops could stand with their backs to us as they knew we weren't going to cause any trouble. It was Lou Plummer's buddies and partners in disinformation that they had to watch.
I loved the fact that it took soooooo loooonnnnngg for the other side to get their rally underway. The reason was that they all had to go through a security check-point. And they are supposed to be the non-violent ones. HAH!
The turmoil we caused amongst the Pinko Ladies was interesting. They really couldn't stand the MOAB. Those who came up with that, thank you very much. And you know, when I pulled out of the parking lot, I would swear that it was Medea crossing the street in front of me. I could have run over her. Being a nice Freeper, I held myself back.
We all enjoyed a particular new Freeper. She has been a member for a while but this was her first actual event. AQGeiger was terrific. I heard good things said about how she talked to the press persons and the speech she made was very good. Way to go, girl!
A bunch of us went and ate afterwards and had a nice time talking over some of the highlights and just being able to sit down.
I'm sure I'll think of something else as more of us post comments. Thank you all for being here.
Somethin' rhythms with ho!
Tiggles ripped that bullhorn right out of my hands and bufted my blip. I'm finbing if harb to swabbow.
GREAT FREEP!!! Bring on the photos! Code Pink are TRAITORS, thanks for getting in their face.
The list of FReepers attending is the "A-TEAM". You all make us proud.
Anybody recognize this gentleman?
Yep, it's amazing how that gets them everytime.
We said the Pledge of Allegiance and also sang the Star Spangled Banner at the start of our Freep.
I was told by one of the Rolling Thunder members that down where "the unwashed" had their rally, you could hear everything we said. Coooool. No wonder we really got to them.
Good catch with the pic. They escorted him up the street and then let him go. But I'm sure they told him to leave and not come back. He left.
That's the fellow who hit Bert.
Signing off so GunsAreOk can post.
