H.O.T. Chapter of FR Heading Back to Crawford (Special 8/17 PM Update pending)

The Heart of Texas Chapter is planning a return to Crawford on Saturday, August 27. Our purpose this time will be to team up with the Move America Forward Caravan, which will originate in California, and pick up supporters from across the country. More can be found about Move America Forward here:MAF

We hope that with this much advance notice, more Freepers will be able to join us this time.

I have spent most of the day trying to contact someone at MAF, but they are so busy they haven't gotten back to me yet. However, it shouldn't be hard to notice a caravan of buses and cars in Crawford, so we will be able to jump in with them with no problem.

I spoke with Police Chief Donnie today, and he really seemed happy to hear that we were coming back. We won't need a permit this time, as we will be a tag on to the MAF permit.

Everyone with suggestions for signs, tactics, etc. please chime in. This will be another Support the Troops Rally--but MAF will probably get in a little Sheehan bashing--which is fine with me!

"I spoke with Police Chief Donnie today, and he really seemed happy to hear that we were coming back."

Great!

Did you happen to see just a bit ealier photos I posted, where a local woman who supports Bush went and tried to fix the crosses runover? The Cindyites didn't want her to touch them.

They wanted the photo op to stay as is for the MSM.

Aargh.

How is it that sheehan can say she doesn't want Pres. Bush to invoke her son's name for any reason, yet she feels free to invoke the names of others for her cause. That's what I love about the left...they don't see what hypocrites they are!

"Move America Forward will be conducting the “You Don’t Speak for Me, Cindy” caravan beginning next week. It will feature military family members who have loved ones serving in the war against terrorism in Iraq or Afghanistan.

The delegation will be led by Deborah Johns of Northern California Marine Moms.

This is excellent!

LOL---how would she know how many there were?

According to some threads I have read, she is either hiding in her tent, sleeping at the Crawford Peace House, getting her hair done, or her feet massaged.

She doesn't have TIME to know what is actually going on around her.

Besides, I think she is somewhat of a "ditz" (not that there is anything wrong with that), so even though she is putting out partisan propaganda about the number of counter-protestors...

I wouldn't doubt that she doesn't have a CLUE how many there are!

She puts the name of other soldiers and pictures of other soldiers at this "memorial" and then uses it as a platform to promote a vile leftist agenda. It is disgusting. I think running the crosses over, while crude, was A) Doing the job the ACLU won't ;) and B) A valid political statement. Not any different then the action of puting them into the ground. It isn't her plot of land. If anything a Texan has more right than a Californian to his political statement.

Who gets arrested? The Texan... She puts those crosses back up at her fake "memorial" trying to dishonor the names of those on them, she should be arrested for LITTERING.

Don't Mess With Texas!

Here's another Sheehan supporter in full military uniform.

Link here (not allowed to post it -- Getty Images photo)

Here's the caption:

Iraq war veteran Hart Viges, who served with the 82nd Airborne, weeps in front of a broken cross bearing the name of a fallen comrade at the makeshift camp of Iraq war protestor Cindy Sheehan 16 August 2005 near the ranch of US President e George W. Bush in Crawford, TX. The crosses, which were a memorial for soldiers killed in Iraq, were vandalized overnight.

There has to be 7 people present before 250 people. Just a matter of timing, heh.

The real memorial for each and everyone of those soldiers is in a grave of their parents choosing. Those aren't memorials. It is a deliberate smack into the face of all those who have died. It was created to try to create emotion for this lady and her exposed and vile agenda. It is supposed to make her medicine easier to swallow.
