Posted on 06/29/2005 4:07:34 PM PDT by MindBender26
This is a vanity post, but trust me, a well sourced one. (I'm an old network newsie and have about 8 more good sources on this than Rather had for his typeface fiasco.)
Here are the details:
A SF SGT E-5, James Stewart, will be buried in St. Petersburg, Florida on July 4, 2005. It's wholly appropriate that he be buried on our nation's birthday, because Sergeant Stewart gave his life for our country.... and all of us.
He was killed in Iraq by a roadside bomb, call an IED in MilSpeak. IED is short for "Improvised Explosive Device." It can be an old artillery shell wired to an electric blasting cap or just some explosives and a few pounds of rusty nails for shrapnel. They are nasty, and they are killing our men and women in Iraq.
His family has had time to get ready for the trauma of his funeral, but there is no way they can be ready for the latest insult to both his memory and all that is civilized.
A Topeka, Kansas freak has announced plans to disrupt the burial with chants, bull horns and signs that read, "Thank God for IEDs" "God Hates America," "This Soldier Is In Hell," and "God Wanted This Soldier Dead."
This is not a sick joke. The following is exurpted from a story on WCVB in Boston:
"A Marblehead soldier who was killed in Afghanistan is scheduled to be laid to rest, but a group from Kansas is expected to try to disrupt the services and police are on alert for any problems. Staff Sgt. Christoper Piper, 43, served in both Afghanistan and Iraq and was awarded a bronze star for his combat service."
"(The protesters) claim U.S. soldiers like Piper are dying because the country is being punished for its tolerance of what they see as immoral behavior, such as homosexuality. The group protested several weeks ago in Dracut and Lexington, Mass., carrying signs depicting homosexual sex, handing our leaflets with the message "Thank God for IEDs"
One little girl wrote them (the "protesters") regarding the pain they caused another dead soldier's family.
The protesters wrote back "We serve God; not your vulgar dumb ass. So we dont care less what you think. We have one goal: publish. Weve accomplished that goal with you. Have a nice day" (end of letter)
I would name names of these bastards and link to pictures of their vile signs, but JimRob doesn;t want it on FR. I agree with his position. Trust me, they are beyond belief.
These creeps are "protesting" at Sgt. Stewart's funeral at the Park Street Baptist Church, 3901 Park Street North (Park and 39th Ave North, about a mile south of Tyrone Mall) at 11:00 AM on Monday the 4th.
Since they want publicity, they will be there early for the cameras.
There will only be a few of them (they usually fly in from Kansas, but be on the lookout for vehicles with Kansas license plates.)
At some of their prior sick protests, vets and others were able to "convince" the sickos to vacate the area before the family arrived. This is not a call for violence, but I'm sure many of us can be very convincing when we see signs like these.
If any of us really give a damn about the men and women currently serving in harm's way, then this is the least we can do to support them and their families.
Sgt. Stewart volunteered to pay the ultimate price for our freedom. What are we willing to do for him?
#2. FReepmail me for assembly point details, times. etc. I'm in Orlando. Do we have someone in St. Pete- Clearwater-Tampa who can take charge on the ground?
Those folks are a bunch of very sick puppies.
Why are they picking on this particular soldier?
Any time a Florida-related thread is created on FreeRepublic, please be sure to add the "Florida" keyword to it so that interested FReepers don't miss it.
Let Freedom Ring,
i this is that god hates america and god hates fags group.. forget the name of the guy who runs it, its a werid cult and his entire "church" is his own family.
Oops. Sorry...meant Florida.....
Sounds like the bunch that got run out of Laramie Wyo.. So damn fast that they left most of their luggage in their motel rooms. They dragged and burned an American flag for about a minute before they found out how folks in Wyo. feel about that.
I have never wished so hard that I was close enough to help pinging the Canteen and will alert other pro-military people as well. Please, PLEASE give us an AAR, ok?
I wouldnt be able to control my temper...I'd throw a protestor a beating.
They should non-violently get the crap kicked out of them.
This cannot happen....
I wish I was still in Florida....
And it would be a good instance of civil disobedience, IMHO. Well maybe not so civil, but it would be more civil than what the treasonous cretins want to get away with.
Anyone from Florida????
Fred Phelps, the sick protestor, was a fundraiser for Al Gore and even one of his delegates in 1988.
No but I wish I was so I can go hold up a sign saying 'come out of the closet!!!!'
I know a couple of biker sites that could be informed of this. Most of em are Viet Nam Vets or younger. Imagine the ones close would be proud to pay their respects and fetch up on a few jerks.
Since these jerks attract the press, I wish you could blow up that picture of Fred Phelps with Al and Tipper Gore to poster size and counter-protest with that picture. On another thread all Phelps's ties to the Democratic party were discussed. I wish evidence of those could be publicized too.
I wish some PI could get all the dirt on these scum. They certainly are not Christians, and need to be outed as such.
I understand....I wont be there either being from Ohio....
it figures that I was working in Tampa just 6 months ago...
Recognize the name. Fred Phelps and company was the jerk run out of Laramie. They are wusses.
Thank you for doing this, MB-26. God bless this soldier's soul and his family.
Oh Lord, Phred's at it again...in Florida now.
Cav, if Phred ever shows up at a funeral in your neck of the woods, please explain the rules of polite funeral observance to him & his brood...
Here's your sign: "Thank God For Country Asswhuppin's!"
It seems they have gone passed the any sort of doctrine governing "peaceful assembly" and have drifted into the realm of willful inciting a riot and fighting words.
I wished I lived in Florida...it would be worth the jail time to beat the hell out of these fools, diplomacy has obviously failed...it's time to remind some that not all rhetoric will be answered with more "rhetoric"...that there is a line in the sand.
Wasn't John Brown's War started in Kansas pre-Civil War?
God Sarge I wish I could go down there and kick some a**. It'd do my heart good to get some agressions out!! LOL
you bet your hindquarters Sarge!!
And a suggestion on a way to block his protest. Buy a bunch of large plastic tarps (blue). Nail them to 2x2's in a long 'chain' of tarps, like a fence. Then walk between him & the funeral, blocking him from the mourners, and maybe the cameras too!
That's a DARN good idea. I am going to ask hubby to post this on his motorcycle site tonight.
WVMtnMama - think you can get hubby to post this on HIS site??
They arent picking on the soldier personnaly, they are just warped and seriously misguided self-proclaimed Christians
And under no circumstances would I agree with them
And ran as a Democrat for the state senate in the 60's... Another psycho Democrat.
A real good post and Freeper action hijacked by a bunch of one liners.
There are many Freepers within a short drive.
"Toto, I have a feeling we're not in Kansas any more."
These certainly are sick people. Sick in their souls.
I hope you get a good turn out....truthfully....your report made me feel a tingle of violence within...it is THAT disgusting.
These worthless freaks, if they show their ugly faces at a patriot's funeral, need to be made to bleed from the nose. Just a little.
Dang!!! I'm in the wrong State! I'll have those there in my prayers.
I have passed this on to a friend who works with a vets group in KY - and I asked him to pass it on to anyone he knows who might be able to help.
So, I presume that you're referring to Fred Phelps and his Westboro Baptist Church? If they're real Baptists, I'm the alien spacelord Xenu.
Give them time, they might just make it to AZ. If someone doesn't wallop 'em real good first.
Take a shotgun and blow them away. No jury will ever convict you.
These Pansy Easterners still think this is the Old West of Wyatt Earp, Tombstone's OK Corral, and Boot Hill, when all it is now is a BIG tourist trap.
I wish I could figure out how to get on each state thread. These same horrible people were on a thread that just showed to Missouri people.
Does anyone know how to get on the state threads? I would like to let the lady that posted it know it's happening elsewhere. Same thing as happened here only different state. They had planned to be at this downed soldiers funeral to interrupt and make things awful for his family and the people that attended his funeral.
Guess it would depend on which bars they went to and how late.
Oh this is not BS. This group made our local paper when they showed up for a soldier's funeral in southern Illinois a couple of weeks ago.
