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 watched Melanie Morgan on Hairball tonight...and Chrissy just totally dismissed everything she was saying..
and was totally buying into Cindy Sheehan's like of thinking (?)....
I did hear him say "Good luck on your caravan"!
She claims that Casey didn't want to go to Iraq...We need to counter that! He volunteered to go for a second tour, and he volunteered for the mission that he was killed on.
You have a good idea, but don't count on them to make any difference..
Last night, Chrissy Matthews had on an Iraqi woman, who is down in Crawford with the pro-troops protestors...when she couldn't understand his questions, or didn't answer his questions fast enough...(remember she is Iraqi, and spoke English, but not perfectly)...he YELLED AT HER...He was insulting to her when she said that the Iraqi people appreciate America, and want our help...
He jumped down her throat on that comment, asking her HOW LONG she expects Americans to be over there spending OUR money and stuff...she said she didn't know..
and he said "yeah, that is the problem, no one know..and 10 years is way to long"...
I agree with a little bashing. The Little General needs to hear the truth! I'm coming with my "bashing" poster.
I'd love to see some "street theater" from our side. We need to get creative - like we do in Dallas for *You Know What* every year. FREEPMAIL IDEAS.
I'm sure the media and the leftists have become good friends since they're all spending every minute together over there so we need a "hook" to draw the media's undivided attention, IMO.
Keep up the great work.
Isn't it great that the "MSM" is not longer in charge!
Is there any chance one of the other ranchers nearby would allow HOT FReepers and MAF on their land for a rally? Or will you again be at the park where you rallied last Saturday?
Good luck to you all. Thank you for being in Crawford and really SUPPORTING OUR TROOPS!
Chrissy Boy is such a jerk. Too bad the Iraqi lady wasn't quick enough on the draw to ask him when we will stop spending money and bring American troops home from Bosnia, Kosovo, South Korea, Japan, Germany, etc. And since when has Chrissy cared about the American government spending money overseas, like the billions in aid given to Africa and the Palestinian Authority, most of which probably went directly into the bank accounts of assorted kleptocrats?
What would be good is if you could get a bunch of troops from Ft. Hood to go down.
I suggest that Cindy's own wacko quotes be individually put up on huge placards, with the dates and venues she delivered them.
And then another saying "Atta Girl Cindy!" with a photoshop pic of Mohammed Atta giving a thumbs up.
I'm mildly upset that you don't include me in that list.
With our side acting with our usual high standards, and their side acting like idiots (as usual), it won't be long before some anti-war liberal dope does something embarrassing that's caught on tape.
Keep your cameras ready!
I'm delighted to know that only about a dozen people even bothered to watch little Chrissy having yet another hissy-fit! And many thanks to you for watching. That takes guts, LOL!
I read somewhere that her son Casey reenlisted 5 months before he was killed. He wanted to go back to Iraq (probably to get away from his mom...too)
WOW! GREAT idea!! I wonder how we could get a contact number? Anybody? Let me know!
I was out of town last weekend...I'm bringing a car load to Crawford for the next rally on the 27th...
ANYBODY KNOW ANYONE AT FT. HOOD? FREEPMAIL ME IF YOU DO OR IF YOU COULD CONTACT THEM YOURSELF.
WE NEED UNIFORMS!
