Skip to comments.CODE PINK URGES WALTER REED NEIGHBORS TO SIC POLICE ON FREEPERS
Posted on 09/16/2005 8:42:42 PM PDT by kristinn
Stung by the success and resilience of the patriotic counter-demonstration by Freepers of Code Pink's ghoulish 'antiwar' protests outside Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., Code Pink leader Gael Murphy and a couple Pinkos distributed flyers door to door to the houses in a several block area around Walter Reed urging residents to call the police in order to run off the D.C. Chapter from there.
The two sided flyers featured a graphic promoting the 'antiwar' activities in Washington next weekend on one side and a letter from Code Pink to the residents in the Walter Reed neighborhood on the other.
The letter is typical Code Pinko propaganda. They give the residents their same old line about they care for the soldiers, blah, blah, blah. They don' t tell them that Code Pink endorsed Al Qaeda in Iraq and gave $650,000 to the terrorists in Fallaujah.
In the letter, they also warn the residents to expect a much larger crowd next Friday because of the 'antiwar' rally.
Code Pink closes the letter by accusing us of "disrupting the quiet" of the neighborhood because we "often yell and raise (our) voices in anger" at Code Pink.
Code Pink then tells the residents, "Please know that you can contact the Washington DC Police Department to ask that peace and quiet be restored."
Unfortunately for Code Pink, the D.C. noise ordinance doesn't apply until 10 p.m. Being that we have a demonstration permit and only use our unamplified voices to direct our comments across the street, our activities fall under First Amendment protections.
Also, out of respect for the neighbors, we keep it down after 9 p.m. (One of the two corners we stand at is in front of the end of a block of row houses. The other corner is in front of a parking lot for a church that doesn't hold services Friday evenings.)
Code Pink, of course, cares nothing for the 'quiet' of the soldiers and their families as they try to put their lives together at Walter Reed. They care only about lowering morale and trying to bring about the defeat of America in the war.
Code Pink can't beat Freepers mano a mano, so they tried a sneaky trick to get us run off by the police.
It is worth noting that yet again a Code Pinko came across the street and tried to start a fight. The 'man' chickened out and went back to his corner when bmwcyle informed him that the police had told us to call them if any of the Code Pinkos came across the street to harrass us.
D.C. Chapter mega ping!
D.C. Chapter mega ping!
You know your getting to them when they resort to these type of actions. GO FREEPERS
You guys continue to rock! Please keep it up!
Some day, I will come down and join you!
Keep up the good work!
Why don't they ask the "Million Moms" for protest support?
Surely then they could just *outnumber* the FReepers....:D
I love how Code Pink twists this one. In reference to the wounded vets being brought in late at night, when would they like them brought in?
Forget the fact that it is around an 8 hour flight from Germany, 15-20 hour flight from Iraq or Kuwait, and a 26 hour flight from Afghanistan.
What do they want the Army to do, wait until daylight to bring the wounded in when they arrive?
THANK YOU again, DC Chapter!
Please FReepmail me if you want on or off my miscellaneous ping list.
Clearly we are having an impact, when she has to resort to desperate tactics such as this.
Facist stunts from the Left? Gee, who would have thought.
Ths would be funny if it weren't so lame. Looks to me like y'all have pushed them into desperation! Keep up the good work! Y'all are the best!
The fact that Code Pink demonstrates there is disgusting enough.
Code Pink openly supports Al Qaeda in Iraq, and should be under investigation by the Justice Department.
Bush is going to close Walter Reed and "...the good jobs will be gone."
What does THAT have to do with the wounded soldiers?
I hate Commie Pinkos.
...a Code Pinko came across the street and tried to start a fight. The 'man' chickened out and went back to his corner when bmwcyle informed him that the police had told us to call them if any of the Code Pinkos came across the street to harrass us.
DC Freepers rock!!! I'm so proud of you! A great big thank you for all you do!!!!
Excuse me, was that Code Pink or Code Stink? The latter seems more fitting.
Code Pink is getting desperate. After hearing Freepers shout the truth about Code Pink's allegiances in this war, many of the new faces on their corner are not seen a second time. They're having a little trouble with commie recruitment and retention.
My guess would be they want the army to disband. :) Saying they support the troops is a huge lie.
Quiet Zone at their 'peace vigil'? Yet they have a guitar player and they sing hippie songs?
Yuck. I wish those pinko jerks would leave our wounded soldiers alone.
This is arguably the best tagline on FR.
Seems to me that we are getting under their skin....
You Go Freeper!!!!
LOVE the crumpled flyer look.
Keep up the good work Brother!
Late getting your book back to you. I'll try to have it in the mail early next week.
Did you notice that unions are listed amongst the peace groups.
If you see any fire fighters try to identify a local # or an IAFF symbol. I want to know whose there.
Take care and my prayers for a successful day.
Thanks for getting this posted so quickly!
We do not condone throwing things or violence of any kind. We have truth and respectability on our side. We don't need to resort to their tactics.
If you remember, a lady LEO finally told Gael to get back on the other side of the street where she belonged.
"Anti-war" = Pro-terror
I like the way you think...
Nice to see you again tonight!
Just means you're getting under their commie skin.
their letter reads, at Paragraph 2: "... the wounded who being treated at Walter Reed..." maybe one of the "union groups" is the NEA?
The only "sharp edge" we need is large numbers of patriots to stand in the streets and attend rallies to physically demonstrate our support of the troops and the President, rather than thousands of tough-talking keyboard warriers and a couple dozen folks actually out on the streets making a difference.
Ideally, they'd leave all our troops alone, but the wounded are especially vulnerable.
Good to see you too.
"Bush is going to close Walter Reed and "...the good jobs will be gone."
They don't care two cents about Walter Reed closing. They only care about themselves and their opinions.
BTW, Squeegee Boy got at least a talking to by a police officer tonight. Probably for playing in traffic, but I couldn't tell as they were across the street.
It's worse than that. This all boils down to their fear that the Bush administration is going to take away their "right" to have an abortion by appointing "originalists" to the Supreme Court. Nothing more. That's all this is about. Abortions.
Good to hear from you. I'll keep an eye out. SEIU is the union in D.C. that's most active in protesting here.
LOL! One of these days we'll have sign that says "Code Pink Stinks!"
Put "If Osama Was A Piece of" between quote narks in Google and see how many hits you get...
Thank you DC Chapter for never giving these people a moments rest. Our country needs more home front warriors like you to defend our freedom. Thank you for looking out for our front line warriors in their time of need.
Puhleeeeeeez...Moonbats beat drums and block traffic. If the locals call the cops it will be because they can't get in and out their own driveways.
I will be taking a cab to WRAMC Friday night. And I'll leave the secret weapon behind til Saturday.
We've had a few false reports called in about us at Walter Reed before. One was that there were three hundred of us and that we were boisterous and jumping in traffic. The responding officer arrived to see a dozen of us just standing on the sidewalk with our signs and flags.
It looks to me like Code Pink is pretty desperate for PR help as well. From the way that the content of the "letter" bounced all over the place (between their anti-war message, to complaining about the wounded being brought in at night, to complaining about the meal charges, to complaining about the hospital being BRAC'd, to complaining about jobs in the area being lost, to complaining about the war again, then the counterprotest,then suggesting that the neighbors call the cops ... did I miss anything in all that?) it's clear that whoever wrote, edited and approved it has ZERO clue about effective message conveyance techniques. It reads like it was written by someone enamoured of their own thoughts in just a stream-of-consciousness fashion ... with no eye/ear towards effective delivery.
All politics aside, it's a pretty pathetic attempt at getting a message out and across. Anyone who's taken a collegiate-level freshman intro to public communications class would know better.
"Saying they support the troops is a huge lie."
I must disagree. They do support the troops......Al Queda!
I think high school classes would cover it.
Code Pink Stinks.
