Let's hear what you have to say.
REMEMBER, these are "PEACEFUL PROTESTORS"...

Antiwar protesters trash 9/11 memorial
American flags burned and slashed
By Debbie Pfeiffer Trunnell, Staff Writer
LA HABRA -- Antiwar protesters burned and ripped up flags, flowers and patriotic signs at a Sept. 11 memorial that residents erected on a fence along Whittier Boulevard days after the terrorist attacks in 2001 and have maintained ever since.
"They trashed 87 flags, ripped 11 memorial tiles made by myself and my children out of the ground and glued the Bob Dylan song to a sign that said, 'America, land of the brave, home of the free,' ' she said.
The Bob Dylan song she referred to is "With God on Our Side,' an antiwar anthem of the 1960s.
"It's unbelievable, because there were absolutely no political messages on this fence. It was all about supporting our troops, which could mean bringing them home, and about remembering 9-11.'
So in a sense, this IS like Vietnam.
Know this: There are more of us Americans who honor you and all our troops than there are of these lowest of the low lifes. Their behavior grows more despicable by the hour and are surely headed to hell for their inhumanity.
Code Pink is a sick group.

I'd be glad to be proven wrong but I doubt they'll touch it.
48% of the voting public voted RAT in 2004.
Sick, and plenty of them.
Anyone who can should come to the FReep counter-demonstrations on Friday evenings. Thanks, aft_lizard, for reposting the link. Here's all the info:
Anybody who really wants to help the wounded go to www.pentagonfoundation.org to donate. Click fallen heroes on the contribution form. You can do it now, from wherever you are reading this and the money goes straight to the troops.
Man, I can't believe how many people are not aware of this travesty. Maybe this "breaking news" will help improve the "Support our Troops" side's rather paltry attendance.
I say this because we have already solved the problem of exposure - new media will not let this story pass.
These people have the moral authority of child and corpse molesters.
I know Tony Snow has been aware of this for at least a few weeks.
You're waking up. Good.
Guess this is the Democrat definition of " supporting the troops " and showing their patriotism.
Somebody's realllly gonna' get their ass kicked now.

It is a sad counter. But, thank God for those that do turn out.
Every Friday night for the past four plus months.
CODE PINK (Medea Benjamin - Full time protestor!)
Banner and Visual Ideas
"Mothers don't let your children grow up to be killers"
Caution/Danger Tape: Bring yellow caution tape or red danger tape and write in the space between the "Caution" words: "Lies inside" or "Death probable" or... and hold the tape from one end of the Recruitment center to the other. Also, make signs that say: WARNING: Joining the military is hazardous to your health/ your mental health/ your education/ women/ people of color/ our lives/ the environment/ your future...
Tape Yellow Ribbons to the windows of the recruiting center with names of deceased soldiers. Here's an account from DC: "Fifty of us marched up to the US Army Recruiting station on L between 13th and 14th Street. Several police guarded the door so we could not get in. But they did not stop us from taping signs and yellow ribbons with the names of dead US soldiers from Iraq. An excellent protest idea recommended to groups nation wide!"
Wear numbers: Send for your number today to represent one of the over 100,000 victims of the war on Iraq. If you have not heard about this project, check out www.countingthecost.org.
"We, the women of one country,
Will be too tender of those of another country
To allow our sons to be trained to injure theirs." Or another quote from Julia Ward Howe's Mother's Day Proclamation
Spoof on the adventure sports aspect of military recruiting: "Training, Education, Adventure?" Death?
"If you want adventure sports, go rock climbing. If you want to die, join the military?" (Something along the lines of adventure sports vs military service. This could also be a great idea for forming coalitions on high school campuses with sports clubs-skiing team, climbing club, hiking club, etc.)
Life-sized coffin with idea that potential recruits can "try out" their future/post-service home? "Real military benefits include this oak box?"
Vigil with medical apparatuses and wheel chairs, with the idea that these devices come with the uniform; talk about # of wounded soldiers returning from the war.
"Our children are not for sale to the war machine in ____(town name here)" or "War is not for sale in our town." "Recruiting Center closed." Make a "going out of business" sign that reads "Recruiting Center going out of business for lack of recruits." "All coffins (or flights to Iraq) 50% off." "Special Package Deal! Join the military and get a free body bag!"
Chalk: Bring sidewalk chalk to draw outlines of fallen soldiers at the entry way of the Center, or draw footprints with arrows and a message saying, "This way to death/war/lies/deception"
Banner with # of US troops dead from Iraq war and projected # of Iraqis killed and slogan such as, "Don't let one more of our sons and daughters die!" "Bring our troops home now!" "All I want for Mother's Day is for the troops to come home!"
Make sandwich-board style signs with chosen slogans
"You can't be all you can be if you're DEAD!"
"Defend Freedom: Protest Recruiters in your High Schools!"
This is their idea of supporting the troops? Go after the wounded.
EVERY Freeper who was at an ANSWER protest or a PROTEST WARRIOR event knows this is old news
So, WHY is Drudge all of a sudden acting like this is new news?
Must be a slow news day for Drudge to report what we here have been documenting:: the assaults on us for the last 3 1/2 years...
God Bless all of you guys for your bravery and commitment.
Im one civilian who is willing to do time in the slammer for kicking the $h!t out of somone if I saw this today. I was only 13 when the VN war ended and wasnt in the position to do anything at the time. That was then and Im sure as SHOOTIN not 13 anymore.
"check out Little Green Footballs caption pic of "Portrait of a Grieving Peace Mom""
she looks really distrought.....
Yah, seriously! The DC FReepers have been awesome.
I don't think they have that much. They are a disgusting group to target our wounded soldiers. I hate Code Pink.
Nope, that's not how it works.
I'm sure the mainstream media will be all over this story. CBS news, ABC, NBC and CNN will have wall-to-wall coverage tomorrow.
Yes this is Code-Pinko. Check the threads for photos of FReeps each Friday night to counter their BS.
Remember the hard hats and love it or leave it? Who will the new hard hat patriots be? Somebody needs to stand up and make these punks stand down.
Treason. Hang em.
This has been happening to Freepers for years now, this is nothign new
The last place I was assaulted was Boston when one of the hippies tried to grab some money that I dropped at my feet, and then his friend jumped on my back while I tried to get it back
Campaign finance reform protects incumbents from
Where is the protection for wounded combat vets...
Liberty is not license....scumbags
If you locate a photogenic, 18-25 year-old blonde girl who has been harrassed by these protestors, you might be able to get Fox News to issue a Fox News Alert when the Natalie Holloway story winds down.
They are doing worse...there is some total piece of human scum (calls himself a reverend or something) that protest at FUNERALS.
They plan to be here in Tenn today and this weekend to protest at three funerals of brave men.
They are gay bashing freaks...something like Godhatsfags.com or something and says we deserve to be attacked because we are becoming a "gay nation". These fundamentalists pukes are no different than fascist, fanatical Islamist.
That's what happens when the fourth estate becomes a fifth column.
It is an American tragedy that our brave soldiers have to endure these cowards.
Actually, the good guys have been outnumbering these soulless bastards for about the last three months now. The counterprotest means the world to the wounded soldiers and their families.
This point is very important. Thank You.
Yep, the well went dry? I just called my hubby at PACOM and told him about this. He had a bunch of troops around his desk at the time. He repeated what I said while I was on the phone, I wished you ALL could hear the outrage I heard over the phone. Man are they MAD!!!
Pingy-ding, DC Chapter members!
Sooner or later they're going to get their a$$es kicked.
Time for a TS Alert (Troop Support Alert). Their are about 600 Veterans per post office. Plus all the civilians who stand in support of the troops. So on Veterans day 2005 at noon meet up at your local post office for a group photo that will be sent to our uniformed Americans who's home town address zip code matches the zip code of your post office.
I'm looking for a good fight. Are you? Seek them out and no relenting. Bash till the liberalism oozes out of every orifice. These mother fu(&c##$@kers deserve it. No one and I mean NO ONE should further their pathetic political agenda on the backs of the brave wounded men and women of the US armed forces. I'll volunteeer on genereal principle!
The cruel nature of these protests by Code Pink and the endorsement of the WTI's statement that backs the insurgents has gone under the radar far too long.
