For the twenty-second consecutive week, members of the DC Chapter of Free Republic, FR lurkers, out of state Freepers, Republican Operatives, mil-bloggers and many others gathered across the street from the main gate at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, on the northeast corner of Georgia Avenue and Elder Street, NW, to show our unconditional support for our troops, their mission and our great country.
Our group began assembling on our corner at 6:30pm, and we discovered that the womyn of Code Pink had already been busy little beavers, leafletting the neighborhood with flyers that suggested the neighbors call the police to complain about our patriotic display and demonstration of support for our troops.
Isn't it interesting - If Code PinkOs were ever stopped from hanging banners from US government property, attaching signs and banners on private citizens' property, trespassing in national political conventions, Capitol Hill hearings, and other events, they would stage strip-ins, lie-ins, die-ins, "pink-slip-drops" and issue press releases, to decry the "fascism and brown-shirt tactics" of those who would stop their law-breaking. But those same America-hating, terrorist-funding traitors are suggesting that the WRAMC neighbors try to stifle our right to assemble peacefully on a public streetcorner. Code PinkO wants only one voice heard, theirs. Code PinkOs are desperate to have us shut down, by any means necessary.
As manure piles up in a horse's stall, the Code PinkOs' numbers slowly grew, to near twenty. Their high for the night was twenty five or so. It's difficult to look at them for the extended length of time needed to count their numbers; you have to constantly fight the urge to gouge your eyes out.
Our Freeper Honor Roll for the evening: Tom the Redhunter, BOBTHENAILER (flew in from Michigan), Concrete Bob (drove up from Richmond, VA), Landry Fan, Jack Deth, BillF, BufordP, 3D-Joy, Bmwcyle, Justanobody (drove up from south of Richmond, VA), tgslTakoma, Kristinn, Fraxinus, Tanker Todd and Mrs. Tanker Todd, mil-blogger Andi, Plea Deal, Our Man in Washington, Annapolis Mom and her daughter, Bill from MD, lurker Kathy from VA, lurker Janine, lurker Joan of Olney. Forgive me, and yell out if I've forgotten you; everyone who stands up for our troops deserves recognition.
The Code PinkOs and their uninformed supporters included the regulars; Gael Murphy, Kevin "Maimed for a Lie" McCarron, Laura Costas, Squeegee Boy, Blue Shirt Ponytail Guy, Little Bicycle Guy, and an assortment of admirers of Gael Murphy.
After the fabulous CNS News report on the weekly Code Pink blood dance at WRAMC, and all the other media and bloggers who picked up on the story, Gael Murphy has had to work hard to try and clean up Code PinkOs tarnished image. The CP website invitation to the "vigil" now reads... "Join us in a peaceful, respect vigil for those inside, candles and signs provided."
So, again this week Code PinkOs' old favorite signs, "Enlist Here and Die For Halliburton" and "Maimed For a Lie," were still in Gael Murphy's DC basement, along with her cauldron, pickled newt eyes, and love letters from Slobo.
Instead, the master deceivers of Code PinkO handed out signs bearing seemingly supportive messages, including:
"Quiet Zone, Soldiers Healing",
"Fund the Wounded, Not the War",
"Protect * Families, Bring the Troops Home Now" (* onto which they wrote in - as an afterthought - military,
and, for their Sandinista Sisters, Squeegee Boy holding "llacaba con La Guerra".
Also present on the Code PinkO side of the street, were blood dancers and supporters of commie front group International ANSWER,
Veterans for Peace,
a couple of Mangy Misguided Minstrels standing alongside Plymouth Congregational Church's Leftist-supporting ANSWER Stooge, the Revvvvrunnnnnd Graylan Hagler (in gray ponytail),
Military Families Speak Out,
and Paranoids for Peace.
Our group was large enough that we were able to deploy both of our MOABs for the second week in a row. On the southeast corner, which we keep reserved for our anti-Code Pink messages, we deployed the "Code Pink Kills American Troops, Giving Money To Terrorists" MOAB, which we first used on March 19, 2005 in Fayetteville, NC - much to Gael Murphy and Medea Benjamin's dismay. Fraxinus, Tom the Redhunter, Tanker Todd and Mrs. Tanker Todd all spent time on the southeast corner, telling passers-by about Code Pink's funding the very terrorists who are helping to fill the beds at WRAMC with wounded soldiers. Code PinkOs seemed unhappy to see the pink MOAB these past two weeks. Cry me a river, PinkOs.
On the northeast corner this Freep, we had a very special young guest, who was celebrating her 7th birthday in a meaningful way. She was a delightful young lady whose mom is very proud of her, I am sure. Buford brought them both to giggle with glee when he shouted across the street to the PinkOs at the end of the Freep, "You're a bunch of poopy-pants." I just hope that she doesn't repeat his words at school, though she seemed to be much better behaved than our beloved BufordP.
Assorted photos of Moonbats:
These womyn coudn't get a date on a Friday night. Gee, I wonder why?
A little spat between Squeegee Boy and Little Bicycle Guy?
SQUEEGE: "I told you! Gael says no more signs that say how we really feel about the $#!#*& soldiers."
LBG: "Oh yeah?! Well, she said I'm cuter than you. AND she also said that I make the best tin-foil hats of anyone she's ever known."
SQUEEGE: "So what! I gave her a photo of me in my Speedo, and she said, 'Wow!' and said she needed to introduce me to Midge."
And so the drama continues...
Squeegee Boy - "I come here to meet womyn."
Lefties fight over their US flag...
LOSER 1: "I'm not gonna TOUCH that flag! You hold it; I had to hold it last week, and I still have the rash to prove it."
LOSER 2: "I'm not gonna hold it either. It smells like urine."
LOSER 3: "Hey, let's get Squeegee to hold it."
LOSER 2: "He won't hold it. There's only one thing Squeegee holds, and it ain't a flag, if you know what I mean."
Hey Guys! It's 9 o'clock! Let's beat feet outta here, before the bus from Fran O'Brien's gets here. I'm sick of getting flipped off by soldiers.
Some fun shots of the Moonbats, as they hurriedly pack up their Freakshow...
Code PinkO's support is literally evaporating before their eyes.
Squeegee Boy lost his head tonight.
Look at the hispanic woman in the background... is she laughing?

Somebody (Justanobody) shorter than me!!
She may be short in stature, but she's no pushover. Richmond Freepers can vouch for that!
Concrete Bob staked out the American Sector with his gigantic flagpole. Landry Fan and Justanobody in front of truck, and Bill From MD (?) and Joan the lurker at the back of the truck.
As you can see by this photo, Freepers again this week rushed out into the street and swarmed around the bus full of wounded heroes and their families, making it impossible for the bus to enter Walter Reed. In reality (an unfamiliar state of mind for most Code PinkO supporters), we stand on the sidewalk and along the curb as we cheer loudly and wave our signs and flags in support of these heroes.
Note well: Bill will also likely miss this week's very important Freep at Walter Reed; so we will need at least an extra 76 manly-men, good-looking women and above average children to take his place.
Please keep this thread bumped, and answer the call if you are at all able to drop your other VRWC duties for several hours on Friday, September, 23rd.
For more on Code PinkOs' lies to soldiers about their WRAMC "vigil," read this thread (if you haven't already).
DC Chapter PING!
We miss you, Bill; and I hope that all is well at the Halliburton meeting. I have put out an urgent appeal for 76 Freepers to fill your shoes this week. They came through for us the last time you missed a Freep. I hope they do this week too.
Wouldn't the DC chapter make more headway if they directed some of their energy towards a potential candidate to the U.S. House or Senate?
Hey, should I wear my "Commies aren't cool" t-shirt again this week? The pinkos got pretty offended by it last week.
"...candles and signs provided."
LOL. Wonder why that is.
bmwcyle I told you on the post-Fayetteville thread I would return the favor sometime this year. See you Friday.
Well excuuuuuuuuuuuuuse me.
Mitchell Potts lost his....well you know.
We're making great headway against Code Pink and the other anti-American Leftist groups. Code Pink used to be a media darling. But lately Code Pink is in full-spin mode.
They have had to remove the most offensive signs from their stock - which saves the families from some amount of heartache when they had to look at the signs.
They have lost their original focus, which was to try and imply some sinister administration motive to bringing gravely wounded soldiers back from overseas at night.
They have lost the more moderate liberal anti-war supporters, due to our weekly education campaign of passers-by and Code PinkO "vigilers." Just look at the photos from our past Freeps - how many faces do you see returning from week to week? The only ones returning are the ones who make money or get publicity for their own organizations; these are the hard-core leftists.
A final note: At the moment, politicians are a whole lot less important to me than the wounded troops at Walter Reed and their families, and the troops who are trying to heal them. That's my personal opinion. YMMV.
All you have to say to Squeege Boy is, "Gort, Klatu Nichto Brada" and he'll leave for his home planet.
Walter Reed has become a quagmire for CodePink and they have no exit strategy. Their leaders have lied to them (i.e. Kevin McCarron is not working for us), the resistance has grown (i.e. we out number them) and their folks are deserting their cause (i.e., see earlier comment on turnover).
Writing that down for future reference!
I'm so sick of pinkos crying that we're trying to silence their voice. They understand it's the location we object to and their tormenting wounded soldiers and their families.
Code Pink Stinks.
Tell me you DIDN'T photo shop this...
Please join us at Walter Reed this Friday night, as we stand in defense of our wounded warriors, their families and their mission.
We begin setting up at 6:30pm and end sometime after the bus from Fran O'Brien's returns to WRAMC (9:30-ish)
Bring signs of support, US flags, service flags, chairs if you have bad knees. We will have MOABs, coolers of water, signs and flags. Other regulars often bring snacks and goodies, and we have pizza delivered on site, for those of us who drive straight from work.
Please join us at the northeast corner of Georgia Avenue and Elder Street, NW - that is the 7200 block of Georgia Avenue.
This is less than 3 miles south of the Beltway, exit 31 SOUTH; and it is also less than a mile from the Takoma Metro station.
As Landry Fan says: "Be there, or be square!"
DC Chapter Rules apply. Briefly they are: No violence, no profanity, obey the law, treat law enforcement officers with respect.
Great report !!!
Good report--thanks for your hard work week after week.
One quibble though--you misspelled "womyn". It should by wymyn. Womyn is too reminiscent of "womb", a body part by which no wymyn should ever be held hostage!!
We'd love to join you one of these days, maybe when hubby returns from overseas, yet again!
Take care! GG
The elder gray haired man with the beard is the Revvvrunnnnddd Graylan Hagler, of Plymouth Congregational Church (North Capitol Street at Riggs Rd.). PCC hosts many ANSWER meetings, DAWN shindigs and other anti-US activities.
The caveman-looking throwback next to him is some goob who carries a guitar around to meet chicks.
"Code Pink Stinks!"
Could this have anything to do with BufordP's opinion that they have poopy-pants?
Well, there's where my misspell came from - I used my womb a couple of times. I was a hostage of my womb and didn't even know it.
Buford always treats Code PinkOs with such dignity and respect.
Well, just be sure not to make the same mistake again! ;-)
Has anyone thought of making a sign that states just that. And if one is artistic, drawing a pink-clothed person with saggy in the seat pants.
Picturing that made me laugh!
Good night from this Widow of a Korean veteran.
After their "peaceful, respect vigil" outside Walter Reed, wouldn't you think these gals would be busy baking cookies and making care packages for the wounded troops they purport to love and support so wholeheartedly?
Wrong again! Instead, Allison Yorra, Gael Murphy and the Code PinkOs are going to have a house party at a flophouse in the nuclear-free zone in Takoma Park!
Oh yes!!! That was a great shirt!
Great job Takoma!! Thanks for the MOABS and all you do!
Hope all is going as well as can be expected at HQ. You will be missed. Give our love to the VP.
Offending the commies is a good thing.
God Bless your journey.
Taxman Bravo Zulu! Bump!
Thanks for the report. Looks like a busy weekend ahead. Unfortunately I'll miss it all.
Wait'll you see my new T-shirt on Friday!

As Landry Fan says: "Be there, or be square!""
I'm going to be there, although late. Also working on increasing the above average children count. It takes at least 76 others to fill BillF's shoes with everything he does.
As long as the "commie" shirt isn't pink!
You are so right! We're not trying to silence them, just move them to a more appropriate location. THEN we can try to silence it once they move!
Great report! Thanks so much for your hard work. Made me feel like I was actually there.
concretebob has a new sign (grin)
We took a vote down here and you can only keep Justanobody til Sunday evening.
Ahhhhhh ... tanks!
BTW, how many of youse will be attending the week-end festivities? If you will be attending, could you check in with Coop over here -
