Their "leader" Medea Benjamin is the one holding the sign.

Looks like quaint little knuckle sandwiches are being prepared as we speak, though.

I hope not. I had a long talk with a Marine very close to me about how violence would help these idiots instead of hurt them. You have to maintain your cool and not hit these folks when you freep them.

Drudge thinks he has finally found something that nobody else is reporting. And, that is true. Well, let's give Drudge all the amo he needs.

How do we do that? Matt's one of the good guys. If we can get him on this "big time", it wouldn't hurt.

I looked at the signs in the photos and they read: "Real Support = Better Benefits" and "Funding for Wounded Not for War" and "Save Walter Reed." Those slogans don't sound like taunts to me.

They have changed their tactics several times over the past twelve weeks that FReepers have been countering them. To see some of their more reprehensible signs, click the links below:

They really just end up urinating on themselves, Public Relations'-wise, you know, wearing those sick outfits.

How can they earn anything more than laughter and disdain from "normal people" just passing them by on the street. Really, what a bunch of saps if they think this is winning people over. I almost want the to continue in those idiotic outfits (but the line is crossed when the insult a disabled veteran).

I have video of several of the counterprotests we've done.

If the MSM is interested, they can have the footage. 'Pod.

They can do and say anything that they want towards a politician.

Messing with an injured soldier, is a totally different matter.

Do it before me, and I am more than willing to be arrested for getting physical.

I accidentaly listened very briefly to Air America the other day...and one of the head honchos of Code Pink..not Medea...was being interviewed about Cindy Sheehan...

She was just whining, and moaning about how they have been treated so terribly down in Crawford...she even was talking about some crazy guy that drove around and ran over the crosses, (of course we heard about that)...but then she said that they are getting cursed at and hand gestured...

but the killer, was when she said that a neighbor of Bush's was SHOOTING AT THEM....LOL

She actually told the host that they were being shot AT!!!

I have a feeling that soldiers, our brave hearts, are under strict orders not to respond to demonstrators' heckling. Take pictures, get names, follow the people. There are more ways than one to express displeasure.

Way over the top.

As one who has been at 17 of our 18 FReeps of the Pinkos doing this obscene blood dance and has been writing up many of the reports on these FReeps, that is wrong to make statements like that. It just makes FR look bad.

Isn't all the outrage here just dandy? Think we'll see any of it on Friday?

LOL! "Many enjoy the shade, but few will rake the leaves!"

For the benefit of other readers of this thread, Coop is referring to those who say they are outraged and those who will actually show up down at our FReep on Friday at 6:30 at the Elder Street entrance of Walter Reed on Georgia Avenue, NW Washington. There's a McDonald's two blocks north that makes a good rest stop before we begin.

Rush and Hannity need to tell about the many men and women who have been wounded and in many cases lost limbs, BUT still have asked to return to the battlefield to finish the Mission they started!

These "Protesters" don't understand the commitment our US Military have to protecting ALL AMERICANS' RIGHTS!

I wouldn't be surprised if George Soros is funding the insurgency in Iraq. He's a mean spirited man that doesn't like to lose. Pat Robertson had the wrong target in his cross-hairs.

Any soldier that responded, would be prosecuted under the UCMJ. That is why we, as American citizens, must do what they are not allowed to do.

You can add Iraq Veterans Against the War in with Code Pink

They are no better with the stories they have been telling ...

In this video they tell the hippies at Camp Nut Case that they were sent to kill Iraqi babies

They are trying to make this another Vietnam

Are you saying that Walter Reed is allowing this outside its gates, allowing this to happen to its patients? That is also reprehensible. That wounded heroes should have to be subjected to this.

It is disgusting in the extreme what the ACLU has managed to cram down the throats of Americans. It's a public sidewalk; therefore they can protest. I do wonder why the Army allows the Pink-os to hang their banners on Walter Reed's fence. I think they are trying not to look like the heavies, which will only get blown up in the press to make the Army look like the bad guys.

"Women have been the guardians of life—not because we are better or purer or more innately nurturing than men, but because the men have busied themselves making war."

Is she saying in effect IF men stop making war then women will stop having abortions????

You need to read some of the earlier AARs then. There are pics w/ that sign. Also about someone holding a sign up that sez "Sign up here to die for HALLIBURTON!"

I've seen these personally and have much video footage of what this trash puts on their signs.

...a double amputee told us outside of Walter Reed how some of these "peace" protesters had called him a babykiller. FWIW, I don't think it was the Code Pink crowd, though.

Wasn't it his wife who told us that protesters show up at the Pentagon every Monday morning (as Pentagon workers are coming to work) with flag-draped cardboard coffins? A couple of weeks ago, the protesters threw baggies of ashes at the people coming to work at the Pentagon. People of the right, we can't sit back on this war and let them turn it into another Vietnam...

I like checking in on their FReep against code pink at the hospital. Thay have good sings. If only hundreds could show up to protest them, wouldn't that be great?

Looks like Walter Reed could do something to stop them from protesting there. I feel so sorry for our wounded who have to see the pinkos protesting them.
