PRO-TROOPS /PRO-BUSH RALLY IN CRAWFORD THIS SATURDAY AT NOON (8/13/05)
Wednesday, August 10, 2005 | Kristinn

Posted on 08/10/2005 2:55:28 PM PDT by kristinn

A pro-troops/pro-Bush rally will be held this Saturday in Crawford, Texas by Killeen radio station KLFX 107.3 FM and sister station KWTX 1230 AM.

The rally will begin at noon and will be held at a parking lot next to the Crawford Bank. Free hamburgers and sodas will be given away until supplies are exhausted.

A spokesman for KLFX said that those who are calling this an anti-Cindy Sheehan rally are wrong. The station wanted to have an event to offer a means for the public to show their support for the troops serving at nearby Fort Hood and their commander-in-chief in contrast to the antiwar/anti-Bush protesters descending on Crawford this week.

The station says the free cookout is meant to tweak the leftist 'hunger-strikers' in Crawford, not make fun of Cindy Sheehan.

I am glad they chose to make it a pro-troops, pro-Bush rally, rather than an anti-Sheehan rally, like was proposed.

WOO-HOO!!! Sounds great! Wish I could be there, both to support the President and the troops and to drive the leftists off the deep end.

Now watch all the press coverage from the MSM I'm sure it will dwarf the coverage of the left wing loons. On another topic, I hope we return to the moon soon and get our fill of green cheese.

Anybody have a way to ping Texas FReepers, especially those in the area?

Also, maybe post something about this thread to the local Texas board: http://www.freerepublic.com/perl/profiles?location=91

Anymouse posted a notice to the Texas board referencing the related thread referenced just below. I think that it needs to be emphasized that the rally is apparently a pro-troops pro-Bush, but NOT an anti-Cindy Sheehan protest as the first thread (below) stated.

Here is that related thread, but apparently was partially based on the honest mistake of erroneously characterizing the rally as anti-Sheehan: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/1460736/posts

You know how easy it is to get lost in Crawford. They probably won't be able to find the bank.

Maybe this map will help.

I think one of us will try to make it. I just saw the MINO and FINO on Fox News and thought I was going to pop a blood vessel. Now they have imported California ninnies to help with the peace stand. Puke. Lost my appetite for dinner.

They may not want an anti-Cindy rally but it will be hard not to mention her.

At least it needs to be pointed out that Cindy ALREADY met with the POTUS. Fox news again reported that she just wants to meet with him. Hello Fox, she already has!

Thanks for the ping! Hope this goes well. I wish I could be there, but I live all the way across the state from Crawford--plus I have to work, darn it! I will be there in spirit! I'll bet the pro-Bush group will be much larger than the anti-Bush nutjobs! Hope they have fun and yell loud!

Any "temp" agencies in the immediate vicinity? I'm unable to make it, being in NJ and all, but I would pay somebody $8.00/hr for 8 hours that day to be there as my surrogate.

I will be in the hospital, but wish I could go. This has been getting mention by DUmmies, with the usual mocking. If a big enough crowd shows up they will be hard pressed to ignore it......but i am betting th MSM will try to do so in any case

Whatever ;^)

From another link it sounds like this Sheehan lady has been sipping the kool aid. I'll be at my rock pile Saturday, but if there's any way at all I can skip out, I'll be there.

BTW, what ever became of MsAntifeminazi? There was a Freep at Baylor University two or three years ago and I think she was able to contact the campus Young Republicans for a more organized protest.

Thanks for the ping.

I just returned from a trip to Fort Hood. On the way to the airport this morning I heard all about this Bar-B-Que/Rally. The morning show hosts were bragging about the Bush Burgers (insert your own joke here). They were getting dozens of supporting calls. One woman called the secretary at her office to complain but was too chicken to speak to them on the air. Anyway, sounds like they're gonna have a boat-load of fun. Wish I could have stayed through the weekend.

yes, the rally is pro troops and pro Bush and I think it should be. But I still think some Freepers need to get out there at some point on do a protesting of Sheehan right next to where she is at.

If I got down to Crawford this Sat it wouldn't be till 2pm or so cause i got plans going on before that. So, i doubt it will be worth it to drive down that late, but if i could i would cause I live in Dallas and I want to be there!

That doesn't sound encouraging. I suppose the summer semesters are probably not a good time to catch most of the stoonts there, eh? Other ways to try to contact some/any of 'em as a group?
